Ultimate Monsoon Skincare Guide
Our skin needs change over time depending on the season, if you are following the same skincare routine throughout the year then it’s not gonna work without making some tweaks!!. Now, you really need to focus your efforts on Monsoon Skincare to keep your skin balanced and beautiful. Monstrous heat of monsoon is an open-invite to skin infections like acne breakouts, eczema / itchy skin, pimples, skin rashes and several other types of skin allergies. Moreover, humidity makes your skin oily and excess oil settles into the pores to make them clogged. Clogged pores stop oxygen from reaching the skin and ultimately result in blemishes (a mark, spot, or discoloration).
For dealing with the woes of monsoon on your skin, let’s explore the Ultimate Monsoon Skincare Guide that promises you a fresh, healthy and flushed skin.
Cleanse your Face
Cleansing is the best way to keep your skin fresh, every day! Experts recommend using herbal face wash in the rainy season. The goodness of herbal & natural ingredients deeply removes dirt and other impurities from your skin without stripping off skin’s natural oil. Go for a face wash formulated with coconut oil, aloe vera, honey and cucumber extracts.
Our Herbal Face Wash is specially formulated for all types of skin, for daily use. It contains herbal ingredients to keep your skin clean, hydrated, and glowing.
Moreover, for dry and acne prone skin, you can try our Oil Control or Foaming Face Wash daily in the morning after getting up and in the evening after your routine work. They will absolutely become your new best friends because of their miraculous results.
Exfoliate and Scrub Less
Exfoliation and scrubbing is definitely a key for fresh and glowing skin. However, doing it more than twice a week worsens the skin texture. When you use exfoliators or scrubs more frequently they create tiny cracks in the skin barrier that lead to more loss of hydration and inflammation. Your skin becomes more prone to scratching, acne breakouts, and other skin concerns.
Golden Pearl Skin Lightening Facial Scrub can be one of the best additions to your Monsoon skincare products. It is enriched with the goodness of Walnut Grain, Shea Butter, Arbutin & Avocado Oil. It revitalizes the appearance of your skin. Due to its tiny grains, it feels softer and gentle than other scrubs in the world of cosmetics.
IMPORTANT: After applying exfoliator or scrub to your face, stay gentle with your hands. Try to use only fingertips for massaging your face in circular motion.
A Fruit Facial Treatment
A fruit facial works wonders for your skin, especially in the monsoon. Fruit Facial Treatments are nutrient-dense and a tremendous way to combat the monsoon’s humidity. They intend to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing pigmentation, pimple spots and wrinkles.
Our Fruity Whitening Urgent Facial contains natural extracts of Green Papaya, Mulberry, and Vitamin B3. Its specialty is to soothe, degrease, and lightens the skin for a fresh and radiant look in just 15 minutes.
Hydration – Be kind to your skin
No matter whatever the season is, you still need to hydrate your skin at full blown. As, in monsoon your skin already feels oily and makes you think, hydration isn’t mandatory. But NO!. When you skip hydration, your sebaceous glands produce even more oil to compensate for the deficiency. Oily skin then leads to many other skin problems, out of which acne, clogged pores and shiny complexion are the main ones.
Try to add monsoon skincare products to your routine that leave hydrated and nourished effects to your skin. You can spray rose water on your face twice a day, apply a lightweight gel-based moisturizer, and even aloe vera gel to keep your skin hydrated naturally.
Drinking 8-10 glasses of water, a glass of fresh juice and water-rich fresh fruits & vegetables, like peaches, cucumbers and more, also helps in staying hydrated all day long, both inside and outside.
No Heavy Layers of Makeup
Although makeup helps in hiding your skin’s flaws but remember, applying heavy layers of makeup is highly refused by dermatologists. Following this tip will greatly benefit you, especially in monsoon when sweat, humidity and oil stick to your skin all day long. So, make sure you apply less makeup and remove it away by using a gentle cleanser or makeup remover.
Some Dos and Don’ts of Monsoon Skincare Guide
- Use Rose water to keep skin fresh and hydrated throughout the day.
