Handy tips for smooth and glowing skin in monsoon.


Use soap free cleanser:

Good and effective cleansing using a soap free cleanser is recommended. You could also use a gentle scrub once a day.


Toning is important:

Cleansing should be followed by toning using an alcohol free toner. Increased humidity could open up your pores.


Sunscreen protection:

Use sunscreen even on a cloudy day. The harmful UV radiations are capable of penetrating the clouds also.


Rehydrate your skin:

Use a light lotion-based moisturiser or serum with a lightening agent. This will rehydrate and brighten your skin.


Eat well:

Eat salads, vegetable soup and drink the usual 8-10 glasses of water. Your skin is always thirstier than you are.
