5 Monsoon Skincare Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy This Rainy Season
As the seasons change, your skincare products and daily regime needs to undergo some changes as well. A summer skincare routine that works during the hot and dry months will do little to keep your skin safe from monsoon’s humidity. If your skin has been bearing the brunt of the constant downpour, follow these simple monsoon skincare tips to keep your skin healthy and fresh in the rainy season.
1. Scrub away tired and dull skin
The rising humidity during monsoons can wreak havoc on your skin. Oil, sweat, dirt, leftover makeup, and other impurities clog your pores and give rise to acne, breakouts, and a host of other skincare problems. Use a mild yet effective face scrub two to three times a week to get rid of the toxins from your skin and to unclog your pores.
2. Give your skin a boost of vitamin C
While exfoliating is a great way to get radiant and glowing skin, you can’t scrub your face every single day. To give your complexion a boost of radiance and make it glow from within even during the dreariest rainy days, add a vitamin c serum to your morning and nighttime skin care routine. Using a vitamin C serum for your face brightens your complexion and gives your skin an instant glow. The concentrated Garnier vitamin C serum penetrates deep into the skin to refresh and revive it and gives you a spot-less complexion with regular use.
3. SPF is non-negotiable even when its pouring
If you thought you need SPF only during summers, you thought wrong! Come rain or shine, you need to add sunscreen to your daily routine to protect your skin from the sun. The UVA and UVB rays damage your skin even when it is gloomy outside, so make sure to finish your monsoon skincare routine with a layer of sunscreen. If you do not want to add another layer of skincare product, use a moisturizing cream with SPF instead. The Garnier Bright Complete Serum Cream with SPF 40/PA++ not only protects your skin from sun damage but also keeps it safe from other external aggressors. Enriched with vitamin C, the moisturizing cream gives you a bright and radiant complexion, as vitamin C products are great for reducing acne scars and evening out your skin tone. The lightweight texture of this cream gets quickly absorbed into the skin without feeling greasy or heavy, making it one of the best face moisturizers with SPF for the monsoon season.
4. Switch up your makeup products
While we are not asking you to stop using makeup entirely, we do recommend swapping your full coverage foundation with a lightweight BB cream to allow your skin to breathe. Moreover, do not forget to remove all makeup, no matter how simple and lightweight, with a gentle micellar water to keep your pores clear and keep breakouts at bay. Going to bed with your makeup on is a guaranteed one-way ticket to acne and dull skin.
5. Help your skin while you sleep
It is a common misconception that those with oily skin can do without moisturizers. No matter your skin type, moisturizers treat your skin to hydration and nourishing lipids that keep your skin healthy and younger-looking for longer. The Garnier Yoghurt Night Cream with Vitamin C brightens dull skin and exfoliate dead skin cells overnight, making it a must have for the monsoon season. This moisturizer is a great way to enjoy the many benefits of vitamin C for the skin even while you get your beauty sleep. The melt-into-your-skin formula of this vitamin C skincare product makes it the best moisturizer for dry skin and oily skin alike.
Last but not the least, remember to hydrate and nourish your body from the inside to make your skin healthy and radiant from the outside. Use the right skincare products for your skin type, drink enough water, and load up on antioxidant rich food to enjoy the monsoon without damaging your skin.
