After summer’s extreme heat with sunburn and tanned skin, monsoon has arrived and made us feel relaxed. We all like the fresh air with the sweet fragrance of wet sand and the lush green trees around. Just like every good thing comes with a price, monsoon also has different kinds of skin problems. The humid weather can make your skin look dull and give rise to a lot of infections. Sometimes, the skin can get extremely oily and lead to nasty acne and sometimes it can also lead to dehydrated and dull skin. Hence, it is important to change your skincare routine according to the season.
Monsoon skin care:
Use Cleanser : Cleansing is an important process to wipe away all the dirt and allow your skin to breathe properly. Use a hydrating face cleanser for dry skin. Use a mild cleanser for oily skin to keep the pores from getting clogged.
MOISTURISE: Monsoon can have an extra dehydrating effect on dry skin and over moisturising effect on oily skin. Using light lotion-based moisturisers or serums is the key to keep skin healthy.
SUN PROTECTION: Summer or winter, monsoon or spring, the sun will never stop from rising and not even the densest of clouds can stop the UV rays to reach to your skin. Hence, it is mandatory to use a sunscreen even in monsoon.
MAKEUP: try to use less makeup.
FOOTWEAR: Wear Open footwear as closed shoes can make you sweat more which can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus and prone to infections.
Always use a wide-toothed comb Which is beneficial for all hair types.
Use a good waterproof headgear: It is wise to cover up your hair while swimming to avoid them from getting wet as the hair becomes brittle and susceptible to breakage and damage when they are wet.
Protein-rich diet: A protein-rich diet is fighting multiple scalp diseases. Proteins play a vital role in building up body muscles and cell regeneration. You can also incorporate eggs, fatty fish and lean meat in your diet. If you are vegetarian then opt for soya, yoghurt, mushrooms, cheese and kale.
Stop Hair spray gel: They damage the scalp and hair slowly. So, it is advisable to avoid them in this humid weather of monsoon.
Choose your shampoo wisely: if you are not profiting your hair with your shampoo then try to change it with the help of a dermatologist.
Try to add iron, zinc, biotin, vitamin D and A. These will help to control hair fall but not replace your healthy diet.
Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated : we can have clear soup, coconut water, green tea, fresh juice etc. to stay hydrated and fulfil the daily requirement of water.
