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