Skin Tips in the Sticky Monsoon Weather
If you have an oily or combination skin type, then you will have an array of skin problems in the monsoon season when the humidity levels increase. Your skin will look super dull with the rise in humidity if your skin is already oily and with frequent oil surfacing on your skin, get ready for an acne breakout. With perpetual oily skin, monsoon will not do your skin any favours as the sweat on your skin will catch pollutants and then go on to plug your pores.
All these oily skin problems will intensify in the monsoon weather and will make your skin susceptible to more problems unless you change your skincare routine according to the monsoon season. In this article, we will list and highlight monsoon skin care tips that you should follow whether you have oily skin or a combination skin type.
Wash/Rub/Exfoliate Your Skin
Excessive sweat in the monsoon season on your skin can clog your pores, and to counter it you need to unclog it and wash away the dead skin cells. Incorporate slightly abrasive ingredients in your skincare routine to stimulate the growth of new skin cells. These abrasive ingredients could be found in your kitchen and can consist of papaya, yogurt, coffee, tea bags etc.
Clean Your Skin at Regular Intervals
By regular we mean clean and wash your skin three times a day to get rid of excess dirt accumulation and avoid fungal infection in the humid monsoon season. You can wash your skin with rose water, lemon water, apple cider etc.
Keep Your Skin Toned
By now you know that you need to unclog your pores and how but leaving skin pores open will invite dust and pollutants and with the accumulation of dirt you will be prone to acne breakouts. You can close the skin pores with the help of cucumber water and lemon water because these are known as natural skin toners.
Keep Your Body Hydrated & Avoid Make-Up
Keeping pimples and acne at bay can be done by keeping yourself well hydrated throughout the monsoon weather because with humidity levels high, you will be getting dehydrated constantly with continuous sweating. So, drink a lot of water to keep your body fresh and your face acne free but also avoid makeup in this weather because makeup can clog your skin pores during the monsoon season, and if you put it on then be sure to remove it before going to bed.
