After the scorching summer heat, the monsoon comes as a relief. The temperature is finally bearable, there’s a lot of greenery around and a cool breeze greets you when you step out. While there may be a lot of pros to look at during this season, don’t forget that the rainy season comes with its own share of skin problems.
HERE ARE THE TOP 8 TIPS FOR THE MONSOON SEASON
1. USE SKIN CLEANSERS
Cleansers are gentle and do not strip the skin of its natural oils, which are essential during all seasons, no matter your skin type. Cleansers can help you get rid of dirt and oil without making your skin dry. Remember not to overwash your face; 2-3 times a day is enough. Overwashing will produce excess sebum and cause problems like clogged pores and breakouts. Try Amlaki’s Pink Salt Scrub to cleanse your body also The Herbal Cleansing Powder is great for cleansing.
2. EXFOLIATION IS THE KEY
Regular exfoliation should be a part of your monsoon skincare routine. It helps get rid of dead skin cells and gives the skin a healthy glow. Scrubbing your skin 2-3 times a week also increases blood circulation which helps flush toxins out. When the layer of dead skin cells is removed, your skincare products will be absorbed better. Amlaki’s Goat Milk Soap is a great product to exfoliate.
3. GO FOR MINIMAL MAKEUP
If you were wearing less makeup or no makeup at all during the summer, we suggest you continue that during the monsoon. Heavy makeup looks won’t stay put and there is also a chance of them blocking your skin pores. Always allow your skin to breathe. Avoid lipsticks too if possible. Use tinted lip balms that can nourish your lips as well as give them a natural tint.
4. USE SKIN TONERS
The rise in humidity will make your skin feel sticky and greasy. Therefore, the use of toners is important during summer. Make sure to add Cucumber Herbal Brightening Toner and Organic Rose Flower Toner to your monsoon skincare routine to keep it healthy and non-greasy. It’s a miracle for acne-prone skin & fungal acne. It delivers perfect results for all types of skin. Moreover, it can brighten and refresh your skin. Using a toner after cleansing is super important to get rid of dirt residue and shrink pores.
5. DON’T SKIP SUNSCREENS
One mistake that most people make as soon as the monsoon season starts is giving up on sunscreen. Just because the sun is hidden by clouds does not mean it cannot have any effect on your skin. The powerful UV rays can easily penetrate and harm your skin, so using sunscreen is a must throughout the year and not just in summer. Add non-oily sunscreen to your monsoon skin care routine if your skin gets greasy. Use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 for complete protection and don’t forget to reapply it.
6. USE A FACE MASKS
The summer and monsoon are two seasons where it gets difficult to keep excess oil at bay. The high levels of humidity are to blame for this. Apart from a basic skincare outine, it is also important to use a face mask at least twice a week. Add Amlaki’s Signature Clay Mask to your monsoon skincare routine to absorb all the excess oil and keep oiliness at bay. You can also go for Signature Charcoal Mask, Brightening Sheet Mask, Rose Brightening & Anti Aging Mask.
7. CLEAN YOUR HAIR REGULARLY
Monsoon hair care is essential. It is known that the monsoon can cause hair damage as the climate is sticky due to excessive humidity. This increases the probability of dandruff, hair fall, and other problems too. In fact, your hair is in its weakest condition during this time, and so it needs maximum care. Applying Amlaki’s Signature Hair Oil 15 minutes before shampooing helps in preconditioning your hair. Use Amlaki’s Hair cleanser and Smoother for the final touch towards beautiful shiny hair in this Monsoon.
