New Delhi: With the arrival of monsoon, while on one hand nature starts spreading its colors, on the other hand the weather also becomes pleasant. In such a situation, girls have to work very hard to keep their skin healthy and glowing in this season. Because in monsoon, we do not understand what to use and how to clean our skin which is comfortable for this season. So today we are going to tell you tips which can help you to keep skin healthy and glowing in this season.
1. Wash your face daily: Your skin pores get clogged with dirt and pollutants during monsoons leading to outbreak of pimples and rashes. Therefore, it is essential to wash your face two to three times a day to prevent these eruptions. You can also use a toner when you have dry skin to keep the pores clean.
2. Don’t skip moisturizer: You might feel that your skin doesn’t need a moisturiser during this season. Though using a moisturizer is almost always associated with winter, it is equally important to use it during monsoon especially during the nights. Keeping the skin moisturized also keeps the skin barrier intact which helps keep the irritation and acne at bay. Night is the time when the skin tries to repair itself on its own, therefore applying moisturizer helps in averting the wrinkles and maintains the glow of the skin.
3. Don’t use oil-based products: The humidity in the air will make oil-based products clog your pores, leading to blackheads and breakouts. “Our skin can easily absorb water-based products due to the humidity in the air. Hence using lightweight water-based makeup and skincare will feel more comfortable on your skin and also make the products last longer,”
4.Exfoliation of the skin: Monsoon is the time when your skin requires the most pampering, therefore, an exfoliation at least once in every week will help you to keep the dead cells away, consequently helping you to keep your skin glowing and soft. Coffee is an excellent exfoliator, however, you could also use green tea, sugar or yoghurt.
5.Don’t let your skin dry up: Monsoons aren’t a reason for not using moisturiser. Don’t skip a moisturiser at all and go for something lightweight that easily blends into your skin and hydrates it without the greasy end result. Mud/clay is rich in minerals and has a unique ability of absorbing excess oil from your skin. Use mud-based face masks twice a week to keep your skin healthy and glowing minus the oiliness!
6.Apply sunscreen: Similar to a moisturizer, a sunscreen is a product whose benefits are strictly associated with summer. But that is not rather should not be the case. During monsoon, even though the rays of the sun may not seem harsh, it can as well damage your skin; therefore applying a sunscreen should be something you must not miss. Be it any season, UVA and UVB rays can damage your skin and induce pigmentation, wrinkles and reduce the elasticity of skin. So even if you don’t step out of the house and there’s no sun out, make sure you apply sunscreen every day.
7.Eat green vegetables and fruits Your skin reflects not only the benefits of the cosmetic products that you apply on it, but also what you eat. Eating oily and junk products show their mark on the skin sooner than later, therefore the trick is to stay away from them and indulge in green vegetables. Your skin will inevitably show the benefits soon. The benefits of eating green vegetables and fruits go hand in hand. Rich in antioxidants, fruits help in maintaining the luster of your skin.
9.hydrates your body: Water has plenty of advantages and it takes care of the skin, health as well as hair. Drinking plenty of water during monsoon takes care of the skin and keeps the glow. Toners and gels are your best friends during the humid months. Aloe vera gel, for example, is a great option. Aloe Vera is hydrating, soothing, and rich in vitamins and minerals. Similarly, you can opt for Rosewater and Aloe Vera toners as well. Both are well suited for oily skin, and Rosewater is also known to help reduce the appearance of pores and brighten the skin.
10. Take off your makeup: Use a water-based cleanser before you sleep. This routine will help avoid clogged pores which would cause infections. “Avoid using wipes during monsoons as the skin’s sebum production can also lead to breakouts.”
