Monsoons are here!!
While the magical rains may offer much relief from the scorching heat, with the rainy season comes a slew of skin troubles. Excessive humidity and dampness resulting in increased stickiness and sweating can cause a host of skin issues like acne, pimples, excessive oiliness, infections, frizzy hair, and so on.
But worry not!
All you need is a good monsoon skincare routine. Using natural ingredients can help keep all your skin issues at bay.
Try these simple skincare tips to minimise the risk of breakouts and heal your skin naturally.
#1 Combat extra-oiliness
|High humidity levels can produce excess oil in your skin that can clog the pores and give way to acne or breakouts. Using a DIY face mask of Multani Mitti, Turmeric, Shatavari, rose water, and lemon juice can be a great way to tackle this issue. Apply this mask on your face 2-3 times a week to maintain the oil balance in your skin and keep it healthy. Check this link for a ready recipe.
#2 Exfoliation is the key
|Exfoliating the skin can help remove dead skin cells and get a healthy glow. It can also help in improving blood circulation that encourages the flushing out of toxins. Make a paste of gram flour (Besan), turmeric, and rose water and apply it evenly to your face to get glowing, healthy skin.
#3 Reduce dark spots
|Rising humidity can wreak havoc on your skin, making it greasy and dull. Combine natural ingredients like Karbi Anglong Ginger powder, honey, and rose water to make a mask. Leave it on your face and neck for about 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. Consistent use of this mask can help diminish acne marks, dark spots, and pigmentation to restore the natural radiance of the skin.
#4 Rejuvenate your skin
|Licorice (Mulethi) based face masks are a great way to refresh your skin and fight common skin problems like oiliness, acne, and scars. Licorice’s main compound, glycyrrhizin, has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory properties that can help absorb excess oil, cleanse the skin pores, fight breakouts, and brighten the skin. Combine Organic Licorice Superoot Powder with lemon, Multani Mitti, rose water to make a face mask. Apply it on your face a few times a week for evenly toned and glowing skin.
#5 Use an effective cleanser
|The rainy season can lead to a build-up of excess oil, grime, and dust. It may not only prove beneficial to wash your face 2-3 times a day but also to use an effective face wash. You can prepare one at home by combining natural ingredients like lemon juice, honey, powdered coffee, and a pinch of Organic Karbi Anglong Ginger powder. This gentle cleanser can help get rid of extra oil and dirt without robbing the skin of its natural oils.
