We all love the rainy season because who wouldn’t like waking up to a pleasant breezy morning with light showers, right? While monsoons are a big relief amidst the scorching hot summer of our country, rains don’t do too good for our skin. The rainy season is synonymous with humidity and skincare becomes all the more important because humidity does not support healthy skin.
The constant oil and stickiness on the face lead to breakouts, pimples, acne, and whatnot. This makes skincare even more essential and so we bring to you a few of the most powerful and easy-to-do skincare practices during the monsoon season!
You need to clean your face more than your usual time because if your skin is oily, it’ll lead to acnes, bumps, whiteheads, and blackheads making your skin look unhealthy.
Everyone needs to exfoliate their skin once or even twice a week so that their pores do not clog at all.
Avoid using your mist too often because it contains glycerine which is not suitable for humidity. It makes the skin feel sticky and you’ll be in discomfort all day.
Always carry a packet of wet wipes with you when traveling so that you can regularly clean your face and not let the dust particles settle on the surface.
Keep yourself hydrated at all times. Your skin needs water to glow and stay healthy, so carry a water bottle if you’re out. Drink at least 3 liters of water every day.
Avoid using heavy moisturizers and oil-based serums. Instead opt for water-based serums and gel-based moisturizers because they’ll keep the skin moisture-free, reduce oil and sweating as well.
You can carry a mist around with you but make sure that you don’t let it dry itself. Pat dry yourself and remove all the excess amounts from your face to let it breathe. Go for options like cucumber and mint mists for this season to cool off your skin.
If you’re someone who uses makeup daily, then make sure you avoid using any oils or heavy moisturizers. Either use a gel-based moisturizer or a BB cream to feel light and airy. Heavy foundations in monsoons will start to budge after a few hours.
Do not blindly trust the DIY videos that are flooded your way through the internet. Applying raw tomatoes, lemons, etc. directly to your skin. They may react differently to your skin.
We all have different skin types and hence they require different care. We’ve tried to come up with common practices that are good for all skin types. There is absolutely no need to go bizarre about your skincare because excess of anything is never good. Just follow the basic rules and you’ll have glowy and healthy skin even during the sticky season of rains.
