Does your skin feel really itchy and inflamed during the monsoon season? Do you also feel like your skin was nice clear one moment and suddenly turns into an angry, red mess out of nowhere? Because, same. The increased humidity coupled with exposure to rain water can end up irritating our skin quite a bit leading to itchiness, rashes, redness and general inflammation.
But don’t worry, with a few simple yet super effective skincare mentioned below, this skin problem can be easily controlled. Read on to find out how…
Clean the area thoroughly
As soon you notice that your skin is looking red or feeling itchy, immediately clean the area with some really gentle cleanser and cold water. This will inhibit any irritants on your skin and provide some relief from the itchiness.
Use a cold compress
After cleansing, sooth the inflammation by putting a cold compress on the affected area. This will help to relieve the rashes, redness or itchiness and prevent it from progressing. If you don’t have a cool compress on you, you can always use a clean cloth dampened in ice water for similar results.
Apply some aloe gel
Aloe vera gel is naturally infused with skin calming and nourishing properties. It is also enriched with wound healing, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial benefits to ease itchiness or rashes and immensely calm your skin. Apply a generous amount of the Lakme 9 To 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel to the affected area for a soothing effect.
