Monsoons may provide you instant relief from the sweltering heat but they bring along a lot of skin troubles too. In fact, right from foot infections and hair woes to skincare issues, monsoons have a lot in store. The high humidity levels can affect skin and hair in unpleasant ways. If you have oily skin, acne will be your first guest as soon as the rains arrive.

The basic regime of cleansing, toning and moisturizing must be followed across the year. This helps in maintaining skin health and prepares it for the harsh weather. We also bring to you a few handy skincare tips this rainy season to ensure your skin looks as fresh as the lush green trees around.

  • A solution of jojoba oil, fresh curd, and honey if applied in the form of a face pack and washed after 10 minutes with a mild facial cleanser is very beneficial for dry skin.
