Monsoon brings with it shares of enjoyment as well as risks of skin infections. Rainy season triggers fungal, bacterial and parasitic and skin allergies. High humidity impacts the skin in the worst way; it can further aggravate whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. In monsoons your skin behaves in an unpredictable manner that applies to oily skin and dry skin. Well, staying away from street foods keeps you safe from the infections associated with the gastro intestinal tract but being wet makes your skin prone to fungal infections and allergies. Dr. Mohan Thomas, Senior Cosmetic Surgeon, Cosmetic Surgery Institute shares some easy tips for a flawless skin and a beautiful hair.

 

Some basic steps to prevent such skin conditions are as follows-

 

 1. Cleanse the skin. The skin should be cleaned 3-4 times a day with non-soapy face washes or cleansing lotions. This helps to clean excessive oil and dirt from the skin pores and helps it breathe.

 

2. Skin toning is essential. Non-alcoholic skin toners should be used to tone the skin twice a day to maintain the skin’s pH balance. Toning revives the skin and gives it an impeccable sheen.

 

3. Keeping dry skin moisturised. If your skin appears to be dry, moisturise it with a good moisturiser. Application of rose water, glycerine or almond oil before retiring to bed is beneficial in keeping the skin supple and healthy.

 

4. Keep oily skin clean. If you have oily skin and have visible whiteheads or blackheads, try to minimise oil secretion from the skin by using water-based moisturisers, cleansers and by applying citrus face packs. Drinking a lot of water also helps in reducing oil production.

 

5. Shield your skin. Just because it’s cloudy, does not mean your skin is protected from the sun. It is highly important to guard your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, so always use a sunscreen with micronized Zinc or Titanium dioxide in it for complete protection.

 

6. Gentle exfoliation. Dead skin cells should be removed at least twice a week. Use a good skin scrub to get rid of those dead cells and make your skin radiant and glowing.

 

7. Drink adequate water. Drink at least 7-8 glasses of water to maintain skin hydration, as the skin loses a lot of water due to sweating.

 

8. Avoid artificial jewellery. For those who have very sensitive skin, it is best to avoid wearing heavy jewellery altogether. The humidity can make your skin break out when it comes into contact with anything irritable. So avoid jewellery around your neck and wrists and allow your skin to breathe.

 

9. Chemical peels are a fantastic way to freshen up a lustreless dull skin. A number of peels are available to choose from like peels for sensitive skin, arginine peels for under-eye dark circles, etc. Of course, all these external efforts will be in vain if you are not hearty from inside. So eat vegetables and fruits and make sure you get adequate rest and stay relatively stress-free.
