1. Skin: As monsoons have arrived, it is very important to take care of your skin. To keep your skin clean use a foamy cleanser or a face wash with microgranules. In case if you are battling with acne then try applying ice on your face, as it is one of the most popular ways to minimise the appearance of pores and lends a natural glow to the skin.

2. Hair: Dust, pollution and humidity can have an adverse effect on your hair. A scalp massage with little oil or serum only does the best for your hair in all seasons. In addition, anti-frizz serums and hair products are a great way to keep your hair looking nice and you may try messy ponytail, a fish braid or a ballerina bun as it looks perfect on this monsoon.
