Skin care in monsoon

Fungal infection is a serious menace in the rainy season given the very humid ambience brought by the showers. Your task is to keep your skin sufficiently dry and allow good air circulation around. It’s advised not to put on socks for a prolonged time to allow easy air circulation in between the toes which are mostly affected from fungal infection. Rely on floaters or sandals wherever possible so that your feet are fresh and airy always. Use dusting talc generously to prevent sweat & moisture accumulation in the skin folds. Make sure to wash the feet with hot water and soap after you are home wading through dirty stagnant water- dry them properly. Then, the skin gets very dull and oily during the showers. The beauty experts suggest using monsoon compatible moisturizers here like those made from orange juice, strawberry extracts and rose water. Avoid the oily foundations, cream-based make up and heavy moisturizers during the monsoon season. You must take care to exfoliate your skin at least a couple of times every week with a good facial scrub.

Hair fall is very common during the rainy months. Thus the beauty experts suggest on taking to anti-hair breakage shampoos this time to prevent further damage. Hair spas and masks are also advised to ensure the hair gets proper nutrients which will enable it to regain the desired strength. Those with oily hair should wash the hair almost everyday.
