Wor­ried about rash and skin prob­lems dur­ing the rainy sea­son? Fight these skin con­di­tions by us­ing nat­u­ral prod­ucts and light-weight mois­turis­ers. Here are some beauty hacks to save you from the weather’s harsh­ness:

■ TEA TREE OIL: Ap­ply a mix­ture of tea tree oil and co­conut oil on your skin. Tea tree oil is dis­in­fect­ing, sooth­ing and helps get rid of rashes and pim­ples.

■ ALOE VERA GEL: Aloe vera is a cur­ing agent for skin dis­eases caused by rain. It pu­ri­fies blood and has heal­ing prop­er­ties.

■ HONEY: Make honey a part of your ev­ery day beauty regime for that nat­u­ral glow. Honey works won­der on dry skin. Women with sen­si­tive skin can pre­pare a face mask of brown sugar, honey, olive oil and le­mon juice. ■ FRESH FRUITS: Fruits such as mango and pome­gran­ate are great for clear­ing scars and marks and pro­vide nour­ish­ment to the skin. Wa­ter­melon can also be used for a flaw­less skin. Mix it with milk pow­der and put it on the skin.

■ ANTI-FUN­GAL POW­DER: Use an anti-fun­gal pow­der on the body folds to avoid fun­gal in­fec­tions that are quite com­mon dur­ing mon­soon.

■ MOIS­TURISER: Opt for light mois­turis­ers, but be vary of us­ing it ex­ces­sively, as that will just sit heav­ily on the face and pre­vent the skin from breath­ing.

■ CALAMINE LO­TION: It con­tains an anti-itch­ing agent and can be used to treat bug bites and rashes.
