Not only is our skin exposed to dust and pollution but also to the harshness and coarseness of the ever changing weather. Well, monsoon has just hit the Indian subcontinent and here are a few tips you can follow to maintain flawless and healthy skin.
- Keep your skin hydrated: Keeping your skin hydrated is a yes-yes throughout the year, especially for people who have dry skin. During monsoon, our skin gets prone to all kinds of infections because of bacteria and germs in the air. Thus, it is very important to select the right kind of products during monsoon, which will hydrate your skin and not turn it rough.
2. Cut down on make-up: During monsoons, the best thing is to let your pores breathe. This is not the time to apply heavy make-up and irritate your skin. Too much of makeup clogs pores and leaves the skin itchy and sore. The heat diminishes the skin’s ability to breathe.
3. Vitamin C consumption: The skin revitalizing properties of Vitamin C are worshiped worldwide. Our skin is always battling radicals such as UV radiations, pollution, and chemicals. Vitamin C consumption helps in reducing melanin pigment and in increasing production and transfer of anti-ageing proteins.
4. Diet and supplementation: It is very important to maintain a proper diet during this season. There is a great tendency of falling sick and losing immunity during this season. We should try and add multi-vitamins and anti-inflammatory components like ginger and turmeric to our diet.
