Basic Hair And Skin Care Tips For The Monsoon Season
With the summer season, most of us tend to bid adieu to those skin and hair care products that we could not do without during those hot, sultry days. We tend to feel that there would be no use for these products now that the monsoons are here.
If you are one of those individuals with similar thoughts, then you are clearly mistaken. Skin and hair care are considered extremely vital for overall well being, and need to be practiced religiously throughout the year, be it the sultry summer season or the wet monsoon season.
General Miscalculations Of The Monsoon Season
Most of us tend to make minor miscalculations about the monsoon season which can turn into major issues later on. The hot summer would have had its effect on the skin which would have developed plenty of dead layers by the time the monsoon arrives. And so choosing to ignore your skin completely at this juncture would put the latter at a greater risk of contracting permanent issues.

Wash your face at least once a day with a mild face wash or a soap free cleanser. Using a gentle scrub with mild beads can also help remove dirt and other impurities from the face without damaging the skin.
Using an alcohol free toner to tone your skin (after cleansing) could so wonders for dry, dull looking skin. Light lotion based moisturizers that contain lactic acid and skin lightening agents can also keep your skin hydrated for extended periods.
A cloudy day doesn’t mean you can walk out into the open without wearing your regular SPF sunscreen. The harmful UV rays of the sun have the ability to pass through clouds and so can end up hurting your skin anyways.
Never step out of your house without wearing sunscreen, even if it happens to be an extremely cloudy day. Since rain can wreck havoc on your makeup, opt for light (preferably water proof) or no makeup to stay safe.
Keep your skin hydrated from inside by drinking plenty of water every day. You can also opt for vegetable soups and fresh salads to keep your skin moisturized and healthy during the monsoons.

The monsoons are when our hair tends to lose its shine and become limp and frizzy, making it very difficult to maintain the same. Well here are some tips to help you get through the monsoon season without sacrificing your tresses.
Wash your hair at least twice a week using a good quality shampoo and conditioner. Opting for a volumising shampoo/conditioner would help retain the natural volume of your hair.
Avoid blow drying your hair as the excess heat can make it frizzy and dull. If you do not have any other choice, then apply a leave on conditioner to your hair right before your blow dry it. This would keep your hair shiny and soft for longer periods.
Take a shower immediately if you tend to get wet in the rain. And wait for your hair to dry completely afterwards. Do not attempt to tie wet hair as this may break the strands. Opt for oil massages once a week to keep your hair smooth. And stay away from greasy style products that can wreck havoc on your beautiful tresses.
