This monsoon, provide an umbrella for your skin with this routine.
Monsoons come as a relief after the extreme heat we've had to endure during the preceding months. But with monsoons come a slew of skin problems. Your skin may suddenly turn oily and shiny, or it may begin to look dry and dull. This happens mostly because of the increased humidity in the air.
If not taken proper care of, the rains can result in skin irritation and cause skin infections. But fret not, we've got the answers to all your monsoon-related skin problems and tips on how you can avoid them altogether.
The monsoon brings along dust particles which settle onto the skin and cause damage. Thus, it is important to use the cleansing, toning, moisturising routine to keep your skin healthy. Cleansing will help your skin get rid of all the dirt and grime thus allowing it to breathe. Clean your skin using a mild cleanser at least thrice a day to keep your pores from getting clogged and to get rid of dead skin cells.
The Lotus Herbals WhitGlow 3 in 1 Deep Cleansing Skin Whitening Facial Foam deep cleanses your skin to keep dullness away.
The humidity in the air can disturb your skin. Using a toner is a good way of maintaining the pH balance of your skin like the Lotus Herbals Basil Tone Cucumber & Basil Clarifying & Balancing Toner. Stay away from alcohol-based toners as they tend to dry out the skin.
Moisturising your skin frequently will keep your skin hydrated, giving it a healthy glow. Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless Skin Moisturizer brightens and softens the skin.
Moisturising your skin daily during the monsoons is not an option but rather a necessity as it helps keep the skin hydrated and prevents it from drying out.
Don't forget to apply sunscreen every time you step out of the house. Even the slightest exposure to the UV rays can harm your skin, therefore, a good sunscreen is a must. The Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3 in 1 Matte Look Daily Sun Block SPF 40 PA +++ UVA UVB protects you without the greasiness!
Hands and feet do most of the work for us and yet we tend to neglect them. Our hands and feet require utmost care during the monsoon. Getting your feet wet in the rain can cause bacterial and fungal infections like ringworm, Athlete’s foot, Leptospirosis and foul odour.
The VLCC Pedicure & Manicure Kit helps fight foot infections and harmful germs leaving your hand and feet refreshed and revitalised.
Keep your nails short during the monsoons as most fungal infections are caused due to the accumulation of dirt under the nails. Indulge in a pedicure at home once a week. Don't forget to use a sanitiser, whenever necessary, as it will prevent infections. Dettol Instant Hand Sanitizer Original is easy to carry and keeps you safe from germs.
We all love to get wet in the rain once in a while, right? But before you rush to get wet in the rain, keep in mind that rain water is dirty and acidic causing damage to your hair. The monsoon leaves your hair frizzy and rough, leaving you annoyed. Shampoo your hair thrice a week if not more to keep your hair clean and free of possible fungal infections. L'Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Shampoo traps moisture to keep your hair manageable. Condition with a frizz control conditioner like TRESemme Climate Control Conditioner after every wash to keep your hair tangle free.
Do not comb wet hair. Our hair is the weakest when it's wet and combing wet hair causes damage. Let your hair completely air dry and only then comb it. A good hot oil champi will boost the moisture in your hair and will revitalise dry strands. Avoid tying your hair during the monsoons as the rain water tends to make your hair limper and frizzier. But if you absolutely must have to tie it, then a loose, low ponytail would be idle.
Apart from taking external care, it's also necessary to flush out the toxins from the body. Honey works as an antiseptic and thus should be a part of your diet. You can add it your breakfast cereal or use it as a substitute for sugar. Increase your intake of herbal teas as they contain detoxifying properties.
The Kairali Yuvan Tea has a mixture of healing herbs, that include turmeric, Krishna tulsi, ginger, bhumyamalaki, katuki and kalmegh that contribute to an effective kidney and liver cleanse.
