Monsoon is often romanticised, but it also comes with its own set of problems. Other than waterlogged streets and mucky neighbourhoods, the moisture in the air can often create havoc with your skin. Fungal and bacterial infections are common during this season and while it might be difficult to keep your skin blemish-free, it’s not impossible.
Cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin every morning and at night is a must. Equally important is your diet. Here are a few steps you can take to keep your skin fresh all day long.
Unclog your pores
Wash your face at least four to five times to ensure your pores aren’t clogged with oil, moisture or dirt. Cleanse your skin and keep it hydrated.
Say no to artificial jewellery
If your skin is sensitive or delicate, don’t wear artificial jewellery or funky accessories. The humidity in the air can increase the risk of infection or skin allergy.
Increase your water intake
Drink more than seven to eight glasses of water in a day, especially in monsoons. It will help your skin retain the glow.
Eat light and nutritious food
Pick natural and nutritious food items to maintain the radiance on your face. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must. Wholesome meals which have a good fat content are apt if you want to repair your damaged skin and keep it moisturised all day long.
Use home-made face masks
With natural ingredients like cucumber, milk, curd, honey, lemon juice, yoghurt and turmeric, make face packs at home and watch your skin cool down and feel fresh.
Take care of your skin this monsoon by toning it and moisturising it at regular intervals.
