Monsoons are once again here to treat us with their immense beauty! You know the petrichor, pleasant weather all over, awesome snacks, and more! Doesn't all this define monsoon for all of us?
But along with its beauty, monsoon also brings skin troubles for a lot of us. There's lots of humidity in the air, it often feels sticky all over, and depending on your skin type, monsoon could spell trouble for you. While there are different kinds of products available in the market to take care of your skin during monsoon; we do realize there are a ton of people out there who are hesitant in using such products. You know, chemicals and what not!
So, in such a scenario, we think it's a totally cool idea and of course, apt, to use home remedies for your skin care during monsoon. What exactly are these home remedies which actually work?
Let's try and find out, shall we!
- Let's start with common sense first - Try to limit the number of times you wash your face to two or three times a day. Why? Because the more you wash your face, the more it'll produce oil and your skin will become stickier. Also, use warm water to wash your face as it dissolves skin oil better than old water. You can use home-made mud pack, with gram flour and raw milk/butter to keep your skin fresh and glowing.
- In case you have dry skin, using a moisturizer becomes all the more important for you during monsoons. In fact, use a cream based moisturizer for better results, followed by an alcohol-free toner. Also, you can use a mix of glycerine and rose water, and apply daily to keep your skin soft and supple.
- And in case you have a combination skin, not only cleaning and moisturizing, but scrubbing also becomes equally important for you. So, people with combination skin need to take a little extra effort to keep your skin healthy.
