Monsoon has arrived and so has arrived the humidity. Rains and humidity can make your skin look dull and expose you to bacterial and fungal infections. This humidity spells disaster on our skin, making it full of impurities.
The skin carries a gloomy look and tends to shrink and wrinkle up due to prolonged exposure to the rainwater. Acne problems increase and intermediate periods of exposure to the sunlight can lead to the tanning of the skin. Along with all this, one of the major concerns is the tendency to develop fungal infections, especially in the body folds.
Here are 10 effective tips to take care of your skin this monsoon:
- Cleanse your skin at least 3 times a day to remove excess grime and oil that can clog your pores.
- You must tone your skin and to do so opt for the non-alcoholic variety; these help even out your skin’s pH balance and also bring a glow to your skin.
- Use a nourishing moisturiser and let your skin breathe.
- If oily skin is your problem then water-based moisturizers are a great option to help keep oil secretion in check.
- Use a reliable sunscreen with a good SPF. It may be cloudy but that doesn’t stop the sun’s UV rays from wreaking havoc.
- You must exfoliate your skin daily to rid it of dead cells but do so gently.
- Make your homemade face peels and packs using ingredients from your kitchen. They are natural and will do a world of good for your skin.
- Keep tea tree oil handy. It’s a great anti-bacterial and can do wonders for skin problems and acne.
- Eat a lot of fruits and drink plenty of water to keep yourself healthy and hydrated.
- The condition of your skin strongly reflects the state of vitamins and minerals such as mangoes, carrots, green leafy vegetables, oranges, whole grains, and nuts in your diet.
