5 Steps To The Perfect Monsoon Skincare Routine
The rainy season leaves most of us with dull skin. Sometimes it’s oily and then suddenly, it looks dry. So many woes, so little time. Unfortunately, we can’t just curl up at home, we have to continue with life as usual. So, here’s a monsoon skincare routine to keep your fresh and on your toes through the season. Treat your skin to great skincare and the monsoon won’t harm you!
1. Face Wash
Thanks to infections that spread during this season and the high humidity, it’s important to wash your face more often than usual. That doesn’t mean you should dry it out. Use a gentle cleanser and wash with cold water to keep your skin fresh.
Use a toner on your face that wipes out any sign of dirt and debris. Again, since you’ll be using this often, you want to make sure it’s gentle but effective. You can opt for a DIY method as well.
You can also try Apple Cider Vinegar if you have slightly more oily skin.
An exfoliating serum with salicylic acid is great for this season, as the chances of developing acne is much higher than usual. A stronger dose of chemical exfoliant is required to keep your skin youthful and remove dead cells to reveal newer, healthier skin. Depending on how dry or sensitive your skin is, apply this 3 to 4 times a week, at night.
Opt for an oil-free moisturizer in the monsoon to keep oiliness and humidity at bay. The Neutrogena one is a sure-shot favourite!
Just because it’s raining, doesn’t mean you don’t need SPF. It’s still an important part of your skincare routine and sun on rainy days can also cause great damage to your skin.
