Monsoon means your skin needs extra care so that it does not suffer from breakouts and acne and a good skin and hair care routine is of paramount importance.
Everyone’s skin is different, so it is important to understand what works for you and what does not. Skincare is very personal so listen to your skin and see what works best for you.
In the monsoons, acne starts to surface as does oiliness and greasiness, because of the increase in humidity. Due to the change in humidity, those with the likes of eczema, focal folliculitis, dermatitis etc. may find their skin more sensitive and irritable.
Hyperpigmentation, a result of increased melanin production due to sun exposure, also occurs in the monsoon. Use your foaming face wash but use only a pea-sized amount. This is a simple and effective skincare hack that can be your lifesaver in any daily skincare routine when used twice daily. Add the power of Hyaluronic acid in a dermatologist-recommended Hyaluronic acid serum to hydrate your skin during the monsoon.
High humidity can cause your skin to become extremely oily in the monsoon. Fungal infections are very common in monsoons due to excessive sweating and the humidity.
Do cleanse regularly. Those with drier skin may find they do not need to wash their face as often but follow the routine that works for you diligently. Do opt for lightweight hydration.
