Monsoon Skincare
Sliya Raichand | Jul 02, 2007
The monsoons are here and here is to your skincare routine. So think you can go easy on skincare this season? Think again.

Here's how you can keep your skin healthy and glowing all through the rains.

Dermatologist Dr. Chetan Oberoi says, "Your skin may act strange during the monsoons. Sometimes it may feel dry and dehydrated and may feel oily at other times. This happens because alternating rain and sun."

Care to Suit Your Skin

The humidity in the monsoon may cause your skin to sweat and become sticky. This will attract dust and dirt that will stick to your face or arms and cause breakouts.

Make sure you carry face tissue or wet wipes so that you can wipe your face clean once you reach your destination.
  • Skin as Dry as the Desert?

If you have dry skin, apply a mixture of rosewater and glycerine on your face before you go to bed every night. This will help soften your skin.

Grandma's Remedy:

Make a paste of almond and honey and leave on your face for 20 minutes. This helps soften your skin.

  • As Oily as a Frying Pan

So your skin is oily… keep wet wipes handy so that you can wipe the excess oil off your face when you need to.

Use a water-based moisturiser and make sure you wash your face three times a day. Since oily skin is prone to pimples, apply a thin layer of Lacto Calamine on your face in the morning and before you go to bed.

This lotion clears your skin and soaks up the excess facial oil.

Grandma's Remedy:

Besan or channe ke atta mixed with rosewater or milk will cleanse your skin and soak up the extra oil.

  • Normal Skin, Perfect Care

If you have normal skin, you need to take basic care of it. Make sure that you cleanse and moisturise daily.

Grandma's Remedy:

Apply a mixture of honey and lime on your face. Leave on for 15 minutes. This will keep your skin glowing. Lime acts as natural bleach.

Dermatologist Dr. Chetan Oberoi says, "As long as there are UVA and UVB rays, you need to apply your sunscreen as you normally would. Use a cream that suits your skin type to keep it safe and glowing through the rains."

Make sure that you carry your bottle of sunscreen with you so that you can re-apply it when you wipe or wash your face.
