After the summer heat, cool breeze and scintillating showers leave people under a spell. While the chilly air is refreshing, rain can sometimes bring a havoc in the lives of common people too — well, the Mumbai rains are proof enough. What’s more, the moisture often takes a toll on the skin. Damp skin can be home to fungal organisms, microbes, bacteria and it may also lead to skin allergy or infection. So, how to take care of your skin and keep it glowing?
With high moisture, keeping the skin blemish free is quite a difficult task. But, cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin every morning and at night is a must. From taking care of your diet to regular lifestyle changes, here are a few steps you can take to keep your skin fresh all day long during the monsoon season.
Unclog your pores
Wash your face at least four to five times to ensure your pores aren’t clogged with oil, moisture or dirt. Cleanse your skin and keep it hydrated.
Say no to artificial jewellery
If your skin is sensitive or delicate, don’t wear artificial jewellery or funky accessories. The humidity in the air can increase the risk of infection or skin allergy.
Increase your water intake
Drink more than seven to eight glasses of water in a day, especially in summers and monsoons. It will help your skin rejuvenate and retain the glow.
Eat light and nutritious food
Pick natural and nutritious food items to maintain the radiance on your face. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must. Wholesome meals which have a good fat content are apt if you want to repair your damaged skin and keep it moisturised all day long.
Use home-made face masks
With natural ingredients like cucumber, milk, curd, honey, lemon juice, yoghurt and turmeric, make face packs at home and watch your skin cool down and feel fresh.
Take care of your skin this monsoon season by toning it and moisturising it at regular intervals.
