We all love monsoons, everything looks green and fresh. We enjoy eating pakoras and bhutta watching the rain and not to forget ginger tea. So in short monsoons are enjoyed by almost everyone and in this case, age and gender don’t matter. But these monsoons affect our skin in the worst way. You must have noticed our skin becomes excessively oily and shiny and sometimes it gets very dry. Basically, the weather during monsoons shows drastic changes in the humidity levels. The hot and humid atmospheric condition leads to oily skin and because we sweat a lot sometimes skin gets dry due to the lack of moisture inside our body so you need to set good monsoon skincare routine.
Oily skin works like a magnet to attract dust and dirt thus making the skin conditions even worse.
Let us see some skincare routine that you can follow to keep your skin fresh and healthy.
Wash more often
If your skin feels oily and sticky, wash it. As washing is the only sane way to cleanse up your skin. But make sure you use a mild soap which is free from parabens, sodium lauryl Sulfate, Triclosan, fragrance. Try the Charcoal and Honey soap from our brand, Chiara. It will not only keep your skin clean but is also extremely gentle and will dry out pimples without making skin dry.
Tone it up
We are aware of cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine, let us focus on toning. Our skin is freshened by skin toning lotions. They help in increasing the blood supply. Toning skin helps in removing any residual cleanser or make-up that may have been left behind. A toner also helps in restoring the natural pH level of the skin, leaving your skin clean, clear and hydrated.
Moisturize your skin
Yes, you got it right, It is very important for dry skin people to moisture their skin but oily skin people should also use a moisturizer. Only the difference is that oily skinned people should use a noncomedogenic moisturizer that means this type will not block your skin pores. A light massage from a moisturizer of your skin type will works wonders.
Proper exfoliation or scrubbing removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells. This also opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy. Using a mild exfoliator will help in retaining the skin’s moisture. Try the Chiara Instant Glow Face Scrub, this has green tea and also helps in removing tan.
Water makes up 70% of our body mass and is one of the most vital nutrients. During the monsoon season, we not only lose a lot of water through sweating but rarely find ourselves feeling thirsty which is why we just don’t drink enough water. Drinking adequate amount of water will help in healing dry skin and will also keep you active.
Always apply sunscreen
Like every season your monsoon skincare routine also needs to include a good sunscreen. Even if it is cloudy outside, applying sunscreen is always advised. Clouds do filter out sun rays but they do not filter the harmful UV rays. These rays cause aging and also this can lead to skin cancer. Apply a sunscreen suitable for your skin type.
So these are some basic skincare routines for maintaining your skin during monsoons. A minute change in our daily regimen can make a huge difference. I tried to make a simple yet effective monsoon skin care routine hope you all like it. So get up and do the needful.
