After the scorching heat of summer, the rains are welcomed with a sigh of relief. But you should be very careful about the condition of your skin. With the humidity, come infections, mainly because the immunity level of our body becomes low during the monsoon. Here are some tips that will make it a happy, splish-splash monsoon.
To start off, let’s go through what to avoid during the rainy season.
- Don’t shower with steaming hot water. It will make your skin capillaries weak and cause skin damage.
- Don’t cleanse in a hurry; not cleansing adequately translates to bacterial invasion which then triggers breakouts.
Now that you know what to dodge, here is a simple three step method to keep your skin healthy –
With all the bacteria and infections running rampant in the atmosphere, cleansing your skin is now extra important. Try washing your face at least twice or thrice a day.
Toning is a must at night. During monsoon, a lot of airborne and waterborne microbes are let loose. So a good anti-bacterial toner will go a long way to prevent skin infections and eruptions. It is a good idea to get anti-bacterial face wash too.
Moisturising in the rains is as important as it is during summer. The monsoons can have a de-moisturising effect on dry skin and an over-hydrating effect on oily skin. With the continuous wet and dry state of the skin a lot of dehydration (yes, in the rains!) takes place. That explains the itchy feeling one gets during monsoons.
These tips will be sure to keep your skin glowing and healthy through the monsoon!
