Use soap Free Cleanser:
Soap free cleansers are gentle and do not strip skin off its natural oils, which are important during all the seasons. No matter what your skin types or concerns, switch to a soap free face wash or cleanser during the monsoon season to get rid of dirt, germs and oil without making your skin dry. Remember do not overwash your skin, 2-3 times a day is enough even if it feels oily. Over washing of your face will lead to excess sebum production and cause problems like clogged pores and breakouts your skin.
Exfoliation is Key:
Regular exfoliation should be a part of your monsoon (rainy season) skin care routine. It helps get rid of dead skin cells and gives the skin a healthy natural glow. Scrubbing your skin 1-2 times a week also increases blood circulation that helps flush toxins out
Opt for minimal makeup:
If you were wearing less makeup or no makeup at all during summer, we suggest you continue that during the monsoon (rainy season). Heavy makeup looks won’t stay put and there is also a chance of them blocking and your face skin pores and damaging your skin.
Use a toner:
The rise in humidity will make your skin feel oily, sticky and greasy, using a toner is therefore important during summer. Make sure you add an alcohol & chemical-free toner in your monsoon skin care routine to keep it healthy and non-greasy.
Don’t skip sunscreen:
One of the big mistakes that most people make as soon as the monsoon season starts is they give up on sunscreen. Just because the sun is hidden by clouds does not mean it cannot have any effect on your skin. The powerful UV rays can easily penetrate and harmful to your skin, therefore using sunscreen is a must throughout the year and not just in summer. Add a non-oily sunscreen into your monsoon skin care routine if your skin gets greasy.
Apply facial sheet mask:
Contrary to popular belief, you do need a moisturizer even during the rainy season. A moisturizer is a must for every skin type and during all times of the year, so you can use facial sheet masks. It keeps your skin moisturized and hydrated; this means your skin doesn’t have to work overtime to produce excess oil. Well, moisturized skin stays healthier, younger and has fewer skin problems. Therefore, it is necessary to add facial sheet mask as moisturizer into your monsoon skin care routine.
Eats green vegetables:
Sometimes your skin reflects not only the benefits of the skincare products that you apply on it, but also what you eat. Eating oily and junk foods show their mark on the skin sooner than later, therefore the trick is to stay away from junkie food and indulge in green vegetables.
Drink lots of water:
Water has lots of advantages and it takes care of the skin, health as well as body. Drinking plenty of water during monsoon (rainy season) takes care of the skin and keeps the glow.
