KEEP MONSOON TROUBLES AT BAY
Achange in weather does not mean you do away with your skin and hair care routine. Sweat and oil deposits make the skin and hair really dull during the humid, rainy season. Here are some expert tips: Cleanse your skin:
Washing the impurities away from our skin allows it to breathe. Clean your skin by washing thoroughly with soap and by removing impurities. But to protect the skin’s natural oils, avoid anti-fungal and perfumed soaps. Instead, use a non-soapy cleanser that ensures deep pore cleansing. Splashing the eyes with cold water also provides great relief.
Don’t rub your face while drying it: The facial skin is very delicate, so rubbing it with a towel can cause hyperpigmentation. Gently pat it dry avoiding any kind of friction.
Go for fruit-based face packs: It is also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin, and monsoon is the best weather for them — there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session.
Don’t tie your hair if it gets wet in the rain: Rain causes humidity which leads to split ends, because rain water has chlorine in it. After returning home, shampoo your hair, and tie only when it’s dry.
Don’t use hair gel or hair sprays: Hair is already dry and fizzy during monsoon, and such products cause more dryness. Use a nice hair serum after every wash, as it carries silicon, which helps giving shine to your hair. Serum is considered to be an anti-humidity product.
