This simple skincare routine will take care of all your monsoon skin woes

With monsoon here in full swing, we can’t help but complain about the skin issues that come with this season. Due to high humidity and dirty rainwater, skin issues like dryness, itchiness, redness, and skin infections become pretty common. So, how do we protect and take care of our skin? Well, with every season change, your skincare needs a change too! And we have mapped out the perfect skincare routine that you need to follow this season to flaunt healthy skin throughout. Check it out.


Step #1: Cleanse your face

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

It is important to keep your skin clean at all times, but it becomes especially important during the monsoon. The humidity and rainwater can harm your skin if not cleaned properly with a gentle face wash like the Pond's Pure Detox Foaming Brush Facewash. With activated charcoal, this face wash deeply removes dirt and impurities with gentle exfoliation. It also comes with built-in silicon applicator brush for deep, mess-free cleansing.


Step #2: Exfoliate weekly

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

From flaky dry patches to oil build-up, your skin faces it all during the monsoon. So, it becomes really important to exfoliate at least 1-2 times weekly using a gentle face scrub like Simple Daily Skin Detox Clear Pore Facial Scrub. Made with skin-loving ingredients like thyme, zinc, witch hazel and bamboo exfoliators, this scrub deeply cleanses your skin by eliminating pore-clogging dirt and refining rough, uneven patches to give you clear and smooth skin. It’s also free from harsh chemicals, salicylic acid, parabens and alcohol, making it perfect for all skin types.


Step #3: Tone it up

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

Enlarged and open pores during monsoon can be quite dreadful, so make sure you don’t skip your toner after washing your face. Try out the Lakmé 9to5 Moist Matte Mattifying Face Toner for this step. With green tea and witch hazel extracts, this toner quickly absorbs into your skin and tightens your pores, giving it a non-oily, matte looking skin. What we love is the cooling effect this toner leaves on your skin after you apply it - it’s quite refreshing!


Step #4: Spot treatment

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

Your sebaceous glands go into overdrive during the monsoon, which is why you need to go the extra mile to keep your skin happy in the monsoon. Before you head on to the next step, try out Simple’s Daily Skin Detox SOS Clearing Booster. Free of salicylic acid, alcohol, parabens and phthalates, this clearing booster can be used as a primer for shine control on the t-zone, and as a spot cream for blemishes to help reduce redness and soothe irritation. This clean skin purifier is enriched with thyme, zinc and witch hazel that helps make your skin look clear and fresh. Just apply a small amount to the t-zone and dab directly on spots before moisturising.


Step #5: Moisturise it right

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

If you think you should skip moisturising during monsoon to avoid feeling greasy or oily, you are highly mistaken! If you don’t moisturise your face, your sebaceous glands will produce more oil to make up for the lack of hydration — leaving your skin even more oily. Moisturising your skin with a lightweight moisturiser like Pond’s Super Light Gel infused with the goodness of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Glycerine will keep your skin feeling fresh and glowing. This super light moisturizer absorbs faster than regular creams and gives 24-hour hydration minus the sticky feeling.


Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

Step #6: Don’t forget sunblock

Just because you don’t see the sun or sun rays during monsoon, that doesn’t mean you should forget your sunblock. Slather on a high SPF sunscreen like Lakmé Sun Expert Tinted Sunscreen with SPF 50 at least 30 mins before you step out. This dermatologically tested sunscreen blocks upto 97% of harmful sun rays and gives your skin a natural, matte finish.
