Just like the seasons, our skin care regime needs a reboot to adapt to the changes! Seasonality in particular has a major influence on our skin.
While the monsoons conjure up joyful images of refreshing rains, a hot cup of tea, and lush greenery, it also spells doom for your skin unless you take good care. Usually it gets difficult to predict how the skin will behave, it may also be a nightmare for the skin because the fluctuating humidity is likely to attract microbes and fungi that brings irritation, clog pores and cause sporadic and patchy dryness, bacterial infection, heat rashes, acne, sweating, smelly feet etc.
In all, it defeats the skin’s natural defences, making it difficult for it to repair itself, this causes skin stress and may make skin very sensitive to touch.
Therefore, to combat these issues, there are essential skin care tips that one must introduce to their everyday routine these days for a gorgeous and healthy skin.
• Wash your face 2-3 times a day, because high humidity can lead to build-up of dirt and grime that eventually leads to inflammation.
• Use sunscreen, even though the sun is behind the clouds, it still emits UVA/UVB rays that cause wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation.
• Get ready to kiss the hot and humid days adios, and prepare to enjoy hydration at its max.
• Limit the use of makeup if you can because it can clog skin’s pores.
• Hot showers, although it feels good, will weaken skin capillaries which results in redness.
Here’s a basic and concise routine, that shall be easy for y’all to follow-
Slough away dead skin cells sitting on the surface of your skin to decongest pores and allow leave-on products to penetrate and work more effectively. Exfoliation works to support the cellular renewal process, whilst targeting dry patches. Exfoliation can also help to support the circulation, which works wonders for your skin!
After exfoliating, turn up the nourishment with our BLUSH- Rose and Red Sandalwood (Powder to Mousse cleanser for all skin types), skin food which smoothes out your skin, wrapping it in a comfort blanket of natural goodness.
This will help you wash away any dirt and excess oil on the top layer of the skin, allowing it to breathe.
To further remove leftover dirt and makeup on your skin, to add a protecting layer after cleansing we highly recommend our - Olive leaf complexion water, which is best known to purify, tone, protect and rejuvenate your skin.
The monsoon humidity, chill and winds can drain our skin of moisture. This is why it is essential to have a super rich and nourishing moisturiser. We recommend our Buriti, Ylang- Ylang & Brahmi - Skin regenerating face moisturiser to give your skin that hydration kick!
Rhythm is life and life is rhythm. Rhythms surround us and are within us. Adjusting your skincare to fit the rhythm of the seasons is absolutely doable by paying some heed to our skincare routine, ensuring we look after ourselves so that our mind and body are staying as strong as possible, irrespective of the unforgiving changes! Try it out, and we are certain that you won’t regret it!
