Doesn’t it drive you crazy when your skin starts misbehaving at the hint of a seasonal change? When your pores suddenly go into rebel-mode and refuse to obey any sort of respectable commands? Or when dirt and grime want to make love to your skin and all you want to do is carry a portable shower around? We get it. Indian monsoons can be pretty devastating where skin is concerned. No surprise there when you combine half-summer-half rain with generous tufts of pollution that scream “No Escape.”
But this rainy season we are dispensing six skincare ninjas to keep skin enemies at bay. Read on!
Oil Control Face Wash
What’s keeping you from amazing monsoon skin? Answer: hyper levels of oil secretion. Charge through with a deep cleansing, oil-control facewash that not only refreshes your skin but keeps it kissable too.
Mild Shampoo + Conditioner
The rains can make your hair a clump of sadness. Spruce your mane and shake it off with a mild shampoo followed with a quick absorbent conditioner. These will give your hair the much needed bounce and shine to beat the blues.
End-of-the-day Shower Gel
The monsoons can be a pretty moody party, if you ask us. Why take a chance and let sweat maintain its domain? Dive into some skin love by using a shower gel to relax your tired brain wiring and prep you up for a good night’s sleep.
What a dream come true it would be to fit in a moisturizer than doesn’t make your skin weigh 10,000 pounds. Especially, if you are guaranteed soft, smooth skin that is well hydrated and sun protected.
Every three or four days your pores require a gentle but thorough cleansing. A body scrub is just the mate for this. Monsoons are temperamental and your skin experiences excessive dust accumulation. A good scrub will ensure your skin a much needed rebirth.
The cue to feeling good is smelling good. A sturdy cologne no longer protects you from eye-hurting sweat patches. Keep a 12-24 hours’ antiperspirant deodorant or roll-on in your satchel to avoid body odour tales.
Let the rains do their thing while your skin beams its glory, loud and bright.
