SKINCARE DO’s & DON’Ts FOR MONSOONS

DO’s

  • DO ALWAYS TRY TO KEEP YOURSELF DRY AND ENSURE THAT THERE IS NO DAMPNESS IN SKIN FOLDS, SCALP & FEET. (Dampness can become the breeding grounds for bacteria and fungi.)
  • DO ALWAYS TAKE A SHOWER BEFORE SLEEPING; IF YOU GET WET/ CAUGHT IN RAIN DURING THE DAY.
  • DO ALWAYS USE LUKEWARM WATER FOR YOUR FACE AND BODY.
  • DO ALWAYS WASH YOUR FACE 2-3 TIMES A DAY IF YOU ARE PRONE TO ACNE. (The humidity in the air during monsoons triggers excess oil production which can lead to clogged pores and acne eruptions.)
  • DO ALWAYS KEEP YOUR BODY HYDRATED WITH WATER AND FLUIDS. (As excess humidity leads to a loss of salts and water from the body. This loss of electrolytes should be suitably compensated. Having lots of nimbu pani is the best and cheapest option for everyone.)
  • DO ALWAYS WEAR FABRICS MADE OF COTTON AS THEY DRY QUICKLY.
  • DO ALWAYS GO IN FOR NATURAL COOLING FACE PACKS LIKE FRUIT BASED PACKS.
  • DO ALWAYS USE SKINCARE PRODUCTS THAT CATER TO YOUR SPECIFIC SKIN TYPE/ NEEDS. (Also only choose those skincare products which do not contain toxic/ harmful ingredients in them and are safe for use on human skin.)
  • DO ALWAYS CONSULT A DERMATOLOGIST; WITHOUT ANY DELAY; IF YOU HAVE ANY SKIN RASH/ ITCHING/ SKIN PROBLEM/ ISSUES.

DON’Ts

  • DON’T EVER DITCH YOUR SUNSCREEN DURING MONSOONS. IN FACT RE-APPLY THE SUNSCREEN EVERY 3-4 HRS. (You should opt for water resistant sunscreens during monsoons.)
  • DON’T FORGET TO DUST AN ANTI FUNGAL POWDER IN BETWEEN YOUR TOES AND THE FOLDS OF YOUR SKIN. (Excess sweating and dampness can lead to a number of fungal infections during monsoons.)
  • DON’T TIE YOUR HAIR WHEN IT IS WET.
  • DON’T SKIP THE MOISTURISATION STEP. INSTEAD OPT FOR A LIGHT, WATER BASED AND NON- COMEDOGENIC MOISTURISER.
  • DON’T FORGET TO CONDITION AND OIL YOUR HAIR REGULARLY. (Monsoons can strip away the outermost layer of the hair strand, making it rough, brittle and more prone to dryness.)
  • DON’T FORGET TO WASH YOUR EYES WITH COLD WATER AT NIGHT BEFORE GOING TO BED.
  • DON’T GET A FACIAL OR BLEACH DONE DURING MONSOONS. PREFERABLY GO IN FOR DEEP PORE CLEANSING.
  • DON’T FORGET TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM INSECT BITES (During monsoons there is a significant rise in insects. Take measures like using insect repellents’, sprays, netting etc)
  • DON’T USE EXCESSIVE HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS DURING MONSOONS AS THEY CAN LEAD TO STUBBON DANDRUFF.
  • DON’T FORGET TO CARRY A SPARE SET OF CLOTHING AND A FACE TOWEL IF YOU ARE GOING OUT IN MONSOONS.
