Changing seasons demand changing skin care regimes. Monsoons are already here and although we love rain as it’s a great excuse to eat scrumptious food with a hot cup of coffee or tea but the humidity that sets in, makes this season unfavorable for our skin. Our skin gets really oily and patchy in this weather and some of you might suffer through fungal infections too! The going gets really tough when you face such problems in the monsoon months. So here are 5 useful tips for your skin to make you aware of all that you can do to protect it in the rainy season.
1. Always use a sunscreen
Some people don’t use sunscreen in the rainy season thinking that there is no sun outside but even if there is no sun your skin is still prone to tanning which might lead to fine lines,wrinkles and pigmentation. UVA rays are the ones that make your skin tan even on a cloudy day. So always use a sunscreen on your whole body with an adequate SPF to save yourself from tanning!
2. Cleanse Your Skin
Monsoons are the time when your skin is the most oily and all the dirt and grime will settle on your skin owing to the oiliness. You should keep yourself really clean and sweat free. Wash your face 3 times a day with a mild cleanser and apply a light weight moisturizer. If you happen to live in a damp area make sure to apply some fungal powder in the spaces between your fingers and toes, underarms and the groin area after you take a shower. This will help keep skin infections at a bay.
3. Keep Yourself Hydrated
Humidity in the atmosphere makes us sweat a lot due to which our body loses water. So it is important to keep yourself hydrated as much as possible. Drink at least 7-8 glasses of water everyday. It will also keep your skin fresh and glowy. You can even include lemonade or fresh juices in your diet. Fruits and vegetables like cucumber, watermelon, tomatoes have a high percentage of water in them and are also healthy to eat!
4. Stay Dry
Monsoons accompany a lot of humidity and rain due to which our bodies tend to be wet with sweat or rain water which gives home to bacteria and fungi to grow. The only way to avoid infections is to stay dry. Carry some spare clothes and a pair of socks if you’re wearing shoes so that you can change whenever necessary. Always carry dry tissues and a small talcum powder and if any part of your body tends to sweat a lot then just dry it with a tissue followed by some talcum powder.
5. Use the Right Make-Up
Do not use cream based make-up that you use on normal days because it’s all gonna wash off with sweat. Use lightweight foundations or BB creams. Stick to waterproof and smudge proof make up so your eye liner and kajal stay in place and you don’t end up looking like a raccoon. Always remember to wash off your makeup at the end of the day no matter how tired you are!
Monsoons are really fun but it can be really fussy for our skin. Taking care of your skin is the way to go! This season can be a lot easier and fun for you if you just follow these simple tips. Drinking loads of water is the most important tip to keep in your mind as it flushes out all the toxins from your skin as well as your body. Remember to eat hygienic food and avoid street food as this season is of bacteria and fungi and it grows everywhere and even on food! It might also cause diseases. The most common disease in this season is typhoid.
Finally, we wish you a Happy Monsoon and remember to eat healthy and stay healthy!
