The monsoon season, with its showers and fresh breezes, provides a sense of renewal. However, it raises the risk of multiple illnesses at the same time. The monsoon season provides a breeding ground for mosquitoes, fungal infections, and other health issues such as the common cold and flu.
As a result, difficult times necessitate difficult acts and preventive precautions!
It is always better to be safe than sorry.
So, just follow these monsoon skincare suggestions from Dr. Avanti Pedamkar, a top skin expert in Aundh Pune, and you'll be fine!
1. Wear little makeup.
Because of the humidity and moisture in the air during the monsoon, heavy makeup makes it harder for the pores to breathe. Use CC or BB creams since their formulation is light and won't make your makeup caky. Makeup should be as light and inconspicuous as possible. Lip tints can be used in place of lipstick to give your lips a more natural appearance.
2. Always remember to use sunscreen.
Yes, just because it's monsoon season (more clouds, less sunlight) doesn't mean you shouldn't use sunscreen. UV rays continue to surround you since they may pass through clouds and hurt your skin. To protect your skin from UV rays, use at least SPF 30+ and a PA rating of +++.
"However, why do I need to use sunscreen?" I spend the entire day indoors. "I'm doing my work from home!"
UV rays can infiltrate your windows in the same way as they do the clouds. Staying inside is not an excuse to forego sunscreen. Sunscreen protects against UV radiation, which can cause skin darkening (tanning, sunburn, sun spots, freckles, and so on) and premature ageing (fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sagging). However, the effects of solar damage may not be seen when you are young, but they will become apparent later in life. UV radiation exposure hastens the ageing process. So, regardless of your age, gender, or season, it is critical to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day!
3. Apply a Clay Mask
Using clay masks may be quite good to the skin during the monsoon and summer months, especially if you have oily skin. The humid and sticky environment of the rainy season can cause excessive oiliness of the skin. Clay masks absorb excess oil and help keep oiliness at bay. Clay masks with aloe vera, green tea, or other antibacterial components are a good option. These will help to remove germs and pollutants that may trigger breakouts.
During the monsoon, you sweat a lot, which may make your skin drab and dry. The most crucial and doable step for bright and vibrant skin during monsoon is to drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Water not only helps your skin sparkle, but it also keeps you healthy. Did you know that water helps to stabilise your mood swings by filtering toxins out of your body? Isn't it always a good idea to be healthy?
