Hey everyone. I hope you all are enjoying monsoon. But with the enjoyment we need to make sure of our skin as well. So for that I am up with some amazing beauty tips:
- Make sure to cleanse your skin at least 3 times a day to remove excess that can clog your pores.
- You must tone your skin and for that opt a non-alcoholic toner. It helps to maintain your skin’s pH balance & also brings glow to your skin.
- The humidity can dry your skin, use a moisturizer to make your skin moist.
- If you have oily skin then go for moisturizers which are water based.
- Use a reliable sunscreen with a good SPF. Clouds doesn’t stop the sun’s UV rays, REMEMBER!
- It is essential to exfoliate your skin daily to rid of dead cells.
- Stay hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day.
- Humidity can make you sweat a lot and skin that doesn’t have enough moisture can look pale and dull.
- The humidity in the air increases the risk of a breakout. Make your own homemade face peel packs. They are natural and good for your skin.
- Monsoons call for fried snacks, you must avoid eating them as they can cause break-outs and acnes.
Exfoliation removes dead skin and helps unclog pores. It also helps in growth of new skin cells giving you a glowing skin. Some of the best exfoliate are coffee, tea bag, sugar, baking soda, papaya, oatmeal and yogurt. Make sure you exfoliate with these mildly abrasive ingredients.
Once you exfoliate well, cleanse the open pores and allow your skin to breathe. You can use apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, honey and lemon and rose water for it.
Tone your skin to remove the leftover dirt and makeup. Store-bought toners may not be great, but use natural ingredients like green tea, lemon juice, rose water, cucumber water and chamomile tea for toning your skin.
The last and final step includes moisturizing as it is important to keep your skin hydrated and soft. Some of the natural moisturizers include cucumber, organic coconut oil, hemp seed oil and olive oil. These moisturizers do not leave your skin oily.
