It’s that time of the year again when the sky showers us with so much love that it invariably leads to a rise in weather humidity.

Natural ingredients for sensitive skin
If your skin starts behaving like a cranky baby every monsoon, it is only fair that you give it some natural TLC. We suggest you start with a face wash that is custom-made for sensitive skin. We don’t know any girl who hates to use any face wash or doesn’t carry one in her makeup bag. The Ayush Natural Fairness Saffron Face Wash and Ayush Natural Fairness Saffron Face Cream are perfect for sensitive skin. It is powered by the unique Kumkumadi Tailam comprising 16 oils and herbs, and these products gently cleanse and moisturise your skin to return its supple glow. It’s always a great choice to opt for face wash and face creams that have natural ingredients in them. They help nourish your skin from within. Sensitive skin needs extra care and choosing the right product that is healthy for your skin is extremely essential. Avoid using new products and just in case you are tempted to try the new ones, take out time to patch test it.
For acne prone skin
If your skin is the kind of sensitive that makes it prone to acne and breakouts, we suggest you bring in green tea into your skin care regimen. Citra’s Pimple Clear Face Wash infused with the goodness of Japanese green tea extracts is perfect to tame oily, greasy and acne-prone skin. Green tea is rich in catechins. They are antimicrobial that destroy acne-causing bacteria. Also, the antioxidants that are present in green tea help in removing the scars and marks that are often left behind by acne. So, you can start having green tea in your diet and opt for a face wash that has it as one of its ingredients.
One sure-fire way to care for sensitive skin during monsoon is by eating right. It’s not rocket science that you should consume foods that provide ample vitamins, minerals, proteins and good fats which will work within your body to give you healthy, glowing skin. Anti-inflammatory foods like turmeric, ginger and honey all work very well for sensitive skin. You can also opt for seasonal fruits and try to have as many green vegetables as possible in your diet. Eating healthy is the most ideal way to nourish your skin and nothing can beat this simple home remedy.
Glycerine is an ingredient that works very well to soothe sensitive, irritated and acne-prone skin. It moisturises your skin, so you can use it to prevent dry, itchy and rough skin conditions. It’s a humectant. Now, what does it mean? Well, it means that glycerine helps in moisturising by drawing water from the air into the skin's outer layer. We suggest you reap the benefits of this wonder product called glycerine through the Ponds Light Moisturiser. Loaded with the goodness of glycerine and vitamin E, it enriches and nourishes sensitive skin leaving it fresh and glowing.
Trust natural emollients
If you have sensitive skin that breaks out at the sight of oily products, you can bank on natural emollients for your skin’s moisturising needs and our votes are with Argan oil! It contains Vitamin E and good fatty acids which make it a natural skin moisturiser. The best part is that Argan oil is non-greasy and won’t irritate sensitive skin. Also, the oil gets absorbed quickly into your skin and it leaves no oily residue. It’s neither too light nor is it too heavy and that makes it suitable for all skin types. To include Argan oil in your skincare routine, we suggest you try the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum. It has a super light nourishing formula and just a few drops will work its magic on sensitive skin.
