We tend to have a weird love-hate relationship with the monsoon season. While we love the cool and amazing weather that comes with this season, we definitely could do away with the constant skin troubles that tag along with it! The constant worry about excessive oil on our face and rashes on our skin is not something we look forward to every year. Your skin requires a lot more care and pampering than the rest of the year.
To make sure you survive this season like a pro, we’ve listed down a whole body care routine that will keep the rainwater from wreaking havoc on your skin.
- 01. Use a detoxing body wash
- 02. Exfoliate it up
- 03. Don’t forget to moisturise
- 04. Wear loose, breathable fabrics
- 05. Keep hands and nails healthy
01. Use a detoxing body wash
One of the first and foremost things to keep in mind while taking care of your skin in monsoon is to make sure it is clean. As soon as you step home, head straight for the shower and use a detoxifying body wash like the Pears Naturalé Aloe Vera Detoxifying Body Wash to wash all your monsoon skin woes away. With 100% natural ingredients like aloe vera, olive oil and pure glycerin, this body wash helps cleanse your body and protect your skin from any damage during monsoon. The glycerin and olive oil in this body wash further helps make your skin soft, glowy and smooth.
02. Exfoliate it up
Cleaning up your skin also means getting rid of the dead skin cells and impurities that clog the pores and cause acne. So, the next step to get your skin monsoon ready is by exfoliating it regularly and giving your skin all the care and love. You can try out Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Kiwi Seeds and Cool Aloe to give your skin a good rub down at home. The aloe vera and kiwi seeds in the scrub will not just help you get rid of the dead skin but will also help moisturise, brighten and replenish your skin.
03. Don’t forget to moisturise
You might think that the excessive moisture in the air during the monsoon gives you the free pass to forego the moisturising part of your skincare routine, but that’s where you are wrong. This season makes it even more essential to moisturise your skin and keep it hydrated. Turn to the ever-trusting Vaseline Lavender Moisturizing Gel to make sure that your skin is fresh, bright and most importantly, moisturised throughout the day. This non-sticky gel moisturiser comes with the calming scent of lavender and is light on the skin, making it perfect for monsoon and all skin types.
04. Wear loose, breathable fabrics
While you do everything to make sure that your skin is taken care of, don’t forget to let it breathe while you are at it! Avoid wearing synthetic clothes and socks to make sure that your skin pores can breathe and the sweat can evaporate easily. Switch to cotton and linen clothing to avoid rashes, allergies and other skin troubles.
05. Keep hands and nails healthy
Just like your feet, your hands too are prone to skin allergies and infections in monsoon. It thus becomes important to take extra care of your hands and nails especially during this season. Wash them at regularly and keep them moisturised. Use a hand cream like the Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream to keep your hands moisturised and protected from germs. With vitamin E, glycerin and anti-bacterial ingredients, this cream moisturises and provides germ protection to your hands, which is just what you need this season!
