Make your skin monsoon ready

Get your skin all glowing this monsoon

Finally after that sweltering summer months, rains have arrived. Though the monsoon has arrived late inIndia, the humidity has started taking a toll on the skin. Women get many skin and eye infections in the monsoon.  So here is how to keep your skin at its glowing best this monsoon:

Care for Combination Skin: The first way to check for combination skin is if you have a shiny T-zone, with dry or normal cheeks.  Since your skin is a combination the best way is to use neutral products. Use products that say ‘normal skin’. But apply a little moisturizer in the dry zones. To combat the oily zones from getting acne, scrub them twice a week.

Care for oily skin: Since the skin is oilier, limit your face washing to thrice a day. Over-washing with soaps and face washes can send the skin into oil production overdrive. This makes it prone to pimples. Scrub your face on alternative days using a gentle cleanser. Use a sandalwood and multani mitti face pack.

Care for dry skin: Dry skin looks very dull, as the moisture content in the skin is too low. Re-hydrate yourself. Have a lot of water and fruits to replenish the moisture. During the monsoon sudden humidity can worsen dryness. Use moisturizers and try using a heavy cream at night, massage it properly so that the skin absorbs it. Do not use harsh soaps on the face. Opt for natural toners like rose water.
