Skincare can be tricky especially when it’s monsoon. Our skin becomes more oily thus giving rise to pimples and acne making us look dull and not fresh. That said, here’s all you need to know about taking care of your skin during this refreshing season. A few small tweaks in your routine, and you’re all set!
1 Use Rose water
Rose water is the best thing ever for your skin. Take some rose water in a cotton swab and dab it all over your face everyday after coming out from a shower. Rose water instantly gives us a fresh look as it is a great cleanser that aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores.
2 Use less Coverage
The best thing that you can do for your skin in the monsoons is to let it breathe. The more you use skin covering makeup such as foundation and concealer, the more it is likely to fade in the rain and humidity, making your face look cakey. You can use light- weight coverage like BB and CC creams instead.
3 Keep your skin dry always
Got caught in the rain? Make sure to wipe your skin with a tissue or a towel as soon as you can! Monsoon comes as a sign of relief after the blistering heat of summer. But it comes with tons of infections, given to its damp and humid weather. Keep face wipes handy for such instances.
4 Wear loose and comfortable clothes
Denims are the worst thing that you could ever wear in this season. As after being drenched it sticks to your skin, takes forever to dry and makes us feel itchy all over. Avoid such situations by wearing clothes that don’t hold moisture, and dry quickly. Loose cotton and linen clothes allow moisture to evaporate quickly and also let your skin breathe. Avoid woolens and synthetic fabric as they only irritate our sensitive skin. We have winters to wear them!
5 Eat anti-inflammatory foods
Monsoon comes with lot of infections and viruses not to forget pimples and acne that surface overnight. To avoid such unbeckoned situations consume anti-inflammatory foods to strengthen your body’s defense against skin issues. Drink lots of green tea and consume fresh fruits, veggies, nuts and whole grains to keep your skin’s defense on alert at all times.
