Thanks to all the humidity and muck, monsoon can spell doomsday for your hair and skin. By following these simple tips, you look as glowing as ever even during a rainy day.
1 Cleanse well:
Use a soap-free cleanser for effective cleaning. You could also use a gentle scrub (with uniform mild beads) once a day.
2 Tone up:
Cleansing should be followed by toning using an alcohol free toner since increased humidity could open up your pores.
3 Sun protect:
Use a sunscreen even on a cloudy day as the harmful UV radiations can penetrate even through the clouds.
Use a light lotion-based moisturiser or serum with a lightening agent as well as lactic acid. This will gently rehydrate your skin and also brighten it up.
5 Go waterproof:
Avoid heavy makeup and use waterproof make up when necessary.
6 Munch on salads:
Remember to nourish your skin from the inside, too. Eat salads blanched in boiling water. Have vegetable soup which will keep you warm and healthy and drink the usual 8-10 glasses of water. Your skin is always thirstier than you are.
