Monsoons and high levels of humidity require you to provide extra care to your face. Read on.
Monsoon season brings humidity that turns your dry skin oily and sticky. Excess sebum production leads to acne and breakouts. The greasy texture also attracts dirt, dust and pollutants that make the face dull. However, with a few beauty tips, you can keep the skin oil-free during monsoons. Take notes.
Maintain Optimum Hydration
Monsoons do not mean skipping on a face moisturiser. Your skin needs to stay hydrated in all weather conditions. Therefore, you must pick a lightweight face cream with a non-greasy texture that will maintain hydration and prevent excess oil production.
Choose Mild Cleansers
While you aim to get rid of excess sebum, you must be careful not to strip the skin of natural oil during monsoons. Therefore, you must use a mild chemical-free cleanser to wash your face.
It will wash away oil and remove pollutants and dirt particles without making the skin dry and dull. To control excess sebum production, wash the face at least 2-3 times daily.
Do Not Forget To Exfoliate
Exfoliation is crucial to the monsoon skincare regime, especially for oily skin. A good face scrub will remove the dirt and wash away oil while clearing the pores.
However, you must not overdo it with exfoliation. Scrubbing the face about 2-3 times a week will do the trick. It will also improve blood circulation and allow the skin to absorb nutrients from skincare products better.
Do Not Skip A Toner
A toner helps to minimise the development of greasy texture of skin when the humidity levels are high. If your skin is sensitive, you must choose an alcohol-free toner that will seal the pores and help with the overproduction of sebum.
This product also clears the skin, removes pollutants and helps you bid adieu to high pH levels. Toners with green-tea extracts and glycolic acid can reduce blemishes too.
Use Vitamin-C Enriched Serum
A face serum enriched with vitamin C is a helpful skincare product to regulate oil production during monsoons. It will help bring back the natural glow by reducing blemishes.
Apply Clay Masks
Clay masks are one of the skincare products for oily skin. The particles absorb excess oil, allowing your skin to remain dry. A clay mask also helps to reduce acne and breakouts because it dries out the skin.
Choose Minimal Makeup Look
If you apply makeup daily, it is wise to choose the minimal makeup look. Heavy makeup will add to the oily texture of the dermal layer by blocking the pores. It will make your face appear greasy. You can choose CC creams instead of creating multiple layers of concealer, corrector, foundation and compact.
Use Non-Oily Sunscreen
Skipping sunscreen in any weather is not a good choice. However, in monsoon, you must always pick non-oily sunscreen to avoid making your face greasy. If you avoid sun protection, the UV rays can penetrate the dermal layer and harm your skin even on a cloudy day.
You must religiously follow a skincare routine during monsoons to keep the skin healthy, glowing and oil-free.
