Welcome the season with a beauty...
If you are welcoming rains, welcome the dryness it gets to your skin as well..... this definitely not mean you need to live with a dry skin... know how to take care of dry skin in rainy season...
Cleanse your skin daily using a soap free cleanser. Also make use of a gentle scrub (with uniform mild beads) once a day to get rid of dead cells. Cleansing should be followed by toning using an alcohol free toner, since increased humidity could open up your pores
Face wash containing alpha hydroxyl acid helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
Just because it is raining, don’t reduce consumption of water. Drink your usual 8-10 glasses of water. Your skin is always thirstier than you are!
Use a toner each time you wash your face to close the pores and restore your skin’s pH balance.
Moisturizing Monsoonal Skin
Skin becomes dehydrated during the monsoon which is why you must moisturize it regularly.
For dry skin, make a mixture of jojoba oil, fresh curd or yoghurt and honey in equal parts. Apply this as a face pack for about ten minutes and rinse it off with a mild face wash.
For oily skin, make a cocktail of oil and rose water. You can use any oil of your choice; for example, use orange oil. Use two drops of this oil with two teaspoons of rose water. Apply it on your face like a moisturizer. Then, rinse off with cold water after 10 min.
Cleansing your Skin in the Monsoons
You need to be extra careful about cleansing your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. The cleansing agent should be gentle and yet, it should be strong enough to remove every trace of dust and dirt from your skin. This is why you should use natural home remedies, especially during the monsoons.
For dry skin, crush a handful of almonds and mix it with honey to make a paste. Massage this on your face for about five minutes. Then, rinse it off with warm water.
For oily skin, make a pulp out of pieces of papaya or use an oatmeal scrub. Apply this on your face and then wash it off with cold water.
