Check out our handy book of rainy day beauty tips that will keep you looking sharp and svelte with very little extra effort. Time to take notes!

Best Beauty Tips For Rainy Season

Seal strand cuticles to tame frizz

The number one pain point in rainy weather, irrespective of your hair being fine, thick, straight or curly. The key to avoiding frizz is to keep hair cuticles tightly shut. Use a lightweight, silicone-based mousse or gel all over your strands, from root to tips after you shampoo. Rinse with cold water after a few minutes. This monsoon beauty tip works like magic. Hello, well-behaved hair!

Go easy with the makeup

Streaky, cakey makeup is an ugghhh look. This is the time to whip out water-proof everything, from mascara and eyeliner to foundation and lipstick. Steer clear of pore-clogging face creams and moisturizers. You need lightweight BB- cream-style coverage, a silky, light illuminator and melt-proof makeup beauties.

Nykaa suggests: The Face Shop Waterproof BB Cream, Nykaa Rock The Line Kajal, Colorbar All - Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick, Nykaa Paintstix Collection and Natio Maximum Curl Water Resistant Mascara.

Buh-bye, body odor!

Rains equal humidity and perspiration. Wet equals smelly. While sweat itself is virtually odorless, when microscopic bacteria that live naturally on your skin mix with sweat, they multiply quickly and raise a stink. A quick fix, of course, is showering twice a day with an antibacterial body wash. Also try using an antiperspirant containing aluminum chloride, a chemical that reduces sweating and also contains a deodorant.

Nykaa suggests: St.Botanica Green Tea and Cucumber Luxury Shower Gel and Nivea Fresh Natural Anti Perspirant Roll-On Deodorant.

Stress-free silky strands

You can stay home and stay dry, but it’s hard to beat the ambient humidity and havoc it wreaks on your hair. All you need to do is arm yourself with anti-frizz hair products. Want our advice? Get hold of a weightless, leave-in oil and a spray-on mist to get the silkiest strands.

Nykaa suggests: Innisfree Camellia Essential Hair Mist and Aloe Veda Grape Seed Oil Hair Serum.

Blending makes everything better

Whether you’re heading out into a light drizzle or a torrential downpour, you have to look put together. Streaky, runny makeup is a put-off and the best rain-proof strategy is to make sure makeup is rubbed into skin and not just sitting on top. Enter Beauty Blender, THE sponge you need to create a flawless, well-blended finish.

Nykaa suggests: Blendmaster All Rounder Makeup Perfecting Blender and Colorbar Fair & Square Foundation Sponges.

The sun isn’t shining and neither should your face

That blasted oily T-zone just seems to be part and parcel of rainy weather. Yet a girl does need moisturizer in this weather, too. Solution: a lightweight, mattifying moisturizer, tinted or not. Either choose a multitasking SPF-infused matte moisturizer or use a mattifying foundation that reduces shine and gives your skin just the right level of hydration.

Nykaa suggests: Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15 and The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion
