Rainy days are already here and taking care of your skin is extremely important because most of the disease outbreaks happen during this season. Those who have oily skin suffer the most during rainy days as they may observe breakouts, pimple, acne or rashes on the skin. Acne is almost unavoidable during these days but taking care of your skin can help to prevent the problem for a few days. Here are some effective skin care tips to make sure your skin stays clear and healthy this monsoon.
Use warm water for your face
It would do your skin good to wash it with warm water instead of cold. Warm water will effectively rid your skin of the excess oil and leave it squeaky clean, keeping those skin woes at bay. Using warm water on your face will help reduce excess production of oil and open your pores, thus enabling you to deep clean your skin.
Use a gentle oil-free cleanser
In order to counter the effects of the rain and prevent breakouts, use a gentle oil-cleaner in the morning and evening and even during the day if required. This will get rid of the excess oil as well as the dirt and dust from your face and prevent acne.
The best way to avoid your skin become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria during monsoon. You must use a high-quality scrub for exfoliating a skin once a week. Over exfoliation will remove the essential oils naturally produced leaving your skin rough and lifeless over a course of time.
Homemade face packs
Indulge in the gorgeous beauty of homemade natural face packs for an ultimate glowing and healthy-looking skin. Use ingredients like honey, lemon juice, yogurt and papaya and use the concoction on your skin for an ever-glorious moisturized skin. Fuller’s earth is also a wonderful natural remedy to use during monsoon with a pinch of rose water mixed it for added benefit. Use pack made of besan and milk, lemon and honey etc. that rejuvenates your skin and leaves it looking fresh and glowing.
Use a non-comedogenic sunscreen
Using a sunscreen is essential even in the monsoons because even though there isn’t any sun, the UV rays are still present and can damage your skin. However, for oily skin, use a sunscreen that is non-comedogenic which means, it will not clog your pores and lead to acne.
