Monsoon is a season we look forward to. The rains, make a really pleasant environment to be in. But, is it good for your skin? Not so much. But some skin care tips and remedies are always worth using. The immunity level of the body significantly goes down during monsoon. We have several infections that take place in the body which lead to a number of diseases related to different systems. There can be stomach problems like indigestion, dysentery, and typhoid. There can also be respiratory problems like common cold, and also skin problems like eczema, rashes, prickly heat boils and pimples.
The season tends to infect the atmosphere around. Surroundings food and drinks that are the basic necessities are also infected. Skin and hair also cannot be left behind from the harsh treatment of the moist humid rainy weather. It is not just the skin that is affected during monsoon, your hair gets frizzy too. The humidity in the air is the reason.
The change in weather also means it is time to change one’s skincare regime. Monsoon can cause your skin to behave unpredictably. A sudden burst of acne is not uncommon. Indian monsoon brings with it dust which settles on your skin and often stays to create dullness and gloominess, it is essential to wash away this dust for a fresh look and a radiating skin. Different skin types need different skin care tips & remedies.
Dry skin: Dry skin is an uncomfortable condition marked by scaling, itching, and cracking. But it can be cleaned with honey. Honey has proven to be the most effective cleanser and moisturizer.
Oily skin: Oily skin can be hard to deal with and we tend to over-cleanse the skin in an effort to keep it clean. It is important to use a mild cleanser just for few times a day to keep the pores from getting clogged. Use Aloe vera and include almonds and tomatoes in your diet.
You can keep your skin healthy and fresh with these few skin care tips mentioned below:
- A rainy cold day does not mean your skin is safe from the harmful skin sun rays, so you must regularly apply sunscreen.
- Make sure you wash your face at least 1-2 times a day to avoid excess oil and dirt, further avoiding fungal infections.
- Drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated and wary of toxins leading to acne and pimples.
- Try using more natural ingredients for your skin and less of commercially bought skin products that can harm your skin.
Exfoliating is the key here. Exfoliating is to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, in order to improve its appearance. It also helps to unclog the pores. It also helps in the growth of new skin cells giving you a glowing skin. Some of the best exfoliators are coffee, sugar, baking soda, papaya, yogurt, and oatmeal. Make sure you exfoliate with these mildly abrasive ingredients.
