Every time the season changes, it brings along its own set of skin issues. Therefore it is important to upgrade your skincare routine to suit the requirements of the season and your skin type, obviously.
Excess oil secretion, itchy skin and dryness are some common monsoon skincare woes. Not to forget that rain water always puts your skin at the risk of attracting bacterial infections. Hence, it is really important to protect your skin with the right kind of products during monsoon.
To help you ladies do just that, we at Team Bebeautiful have rounded up our favourite monsoon skincare products. Here are the products that help us keep our skin flawless even during the humid weather.

I have normal skin and it is usually problem-free throughout the year, but during monsoon it tends to get a little oily. To combat this issue, I prefer keeping blotting papers handy at all times. But one skincare step I never skip is using a good cleanser. I prefer using the Lakme Blush & Glow Kiwi Crush Gel Face Wash as it really helps cleanse and hydrate my skin without making it feel dry. Another great thing about this cleanser is that it controls excess sebum production and keeps my skin matte yet nourished all day long.

“Even though I really like the rainy season, the humidity is something that annoys me to no end. Each time I step out of my house, I start sweating profusely. For this reason, my go to skincare product during the monsoon has to be antiperspirant. I always keep the Rexona Aloe Vera Underarm Odour Protection Roll On in my purse. This not only helps prevent sweating, but also restricts body odour and keeps me feeling fresh and dry throughout the day .”

“My biggest monsoon skincare woe has to be dryness. During this time of the year, my skin starts feeling extremely dry, parched and stretchy and therefore, I need to ensure that I keep a nourishing moisturiser with me at all times. I prefer using the Simple Kind To Skin Protecting Light Moisturiser SPF 15 as it hydrates my skin without any greasiness. Additionally, I love the fact that it is completely free from any skincare baddies and is absolutely safe for dry, sensitive skin.”

“The one skincare concern that really bothers me during monsoon has to be related to my feet. The rainwater really affects my feet, making them dirty, rough and dry. Therefore, I religiously wash my feet every night before bed using a hydrating body wash. I prefer using the Lux Magical Spell Body Wash With Black Orchids And Juniper Oil. As it comes enriched with essential oils, this body wash is extremely nourishing and keeps my feet super soft and conditioned throughout the season.”
