Monsoons are known for being beautiful and cosy, but this damp weather can wreak absolute havoc on your skin. You’ve got to fight with humidity and therefore, excess dirt and oil, resulting in acne, dull and oily skin. But, no matter what’s plaguing you, monsoons don’t have to be a dramatic change for your skin care though. We’ve got some tips on how you can seamlessly transition your skin care and adapt to the new weather conditions.
Getting Cleansing Right:
Cleansing your skin is the most important step in a skin care regime. While in summers you can try out creamy cleansers, monsoons are the times to steer clear of them and focus on gentle, soothing and moisturising picks. We have got you covered if the plethora of skin care options left you baffled.
For Dull & Dry skin:
Dermafique PH Restore Cleansing Mousse does more than just cleansing your skin. With a blend of moisturising ingredients, it hydrates your skin, leaving it soft while maintaining its pH level. And, with ingredients like Rosa Gallica Flower Extract, Jojoba Seed Oil and Chamomilla Flower Extract, this cleansing mousse speaks for itself.
For Acne-Prone skin:
If you are looking forward to keeping acne at bay this rainy season, Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash is the cleanser to get your hands on. Formulated with salicylic acid to help draw out impurities and unclog pores, this cleanser works like a charm. It is gentle enough to use every day and is non-drying, too.
For Oily Skin
This soap-free cleanser from Eau Thermale Avene is designed to free your skin from dirt, makeup and pollution. What begins with the gel texture, eventually emulsifies into a milky cleanser when combined with water, leaving your skin feeling deeply clean and fresh.
That One Step We All Ignore: Toning
A good toner re-hydrates your skin leaving it refreshed and healthy. Before you get on with your moisturiser, apply a toner that is suitable for your skin for an extra barrier of protection.
Lock-In the Moisture
Believe it or not, more than half of your skin content is water, to be precise, up to 64 per cent. To maintain that young, healthy-looking skin, you will have to focus on keeping your skin, and therefore your whole body well hydrated. So, go ahead and find moisturisers that match best for your skin type and add it to your monsoon skincare routine.
Slather On Your Sunscreen:
Even if it’s not sunny outside in the monsoons, even if you get fewer chances to step out these days, there are always harmful rays that can accelerate skin damage, think spots and pigmentation. Especially, when you are spending a lot of time in front of your laptop, exposed to those light rays. Therefore, do not forget to apply sunscreens. Opt for skin nourishing formulas that don’t just protect but also balance your skin.
Pampering Your Skin:
Use that extra time you are saving by not commuting to work anymore by treating your skin to some good face masks. This green tea face mask by Plum is all-natural, vegan and formulated with green tea and glycolic acid to clear out your pores.
