Tired of flaky powder cakes and smelly make up drawer in the monsoon? The season is almost here and we bring best tips to ensure your make-up is safe from humidity and dampness.
Beauty expert Ishika Taneja, Executive Director, Alps Group, lists a few steps that one can take to safeguard make-up during the rainy season.
* Store well
Place all your powder-based products like compact face powder, eye shadows and other items in an airy and dry cabinet to keep dampness away from it.
* Re-sealing task
Closing the lids properly prevents it by getting dampened which might further affect their quality and results.
* Waterproof travel
As we never know of sudden shower surprises during rains, use a waterproof bag or slip pouch to store the make-up while travelling in the rainy season.
Make sure to seal the bristles in separate zip pouches and then place in the drawers to keep humidity and fungus at a distance.
* Blow dryer to the rescue
Even after taking vigorous precautions, if one accidentally ends up wetting the products, dry them using a blow dryer to get them back in action.
* Check the condition
Make sure to apply these powder make-up items after checking their condition, as dampening can mingle with environmental bacteria and make these products cause infections and allergy when applied to the skin. So use only when dry.
* Smell matters
In case of a foul smell or discolouration in the product, take it as a red signal and discard it right away.
