The monsoon may be a beautiful season, especially as it brings immense relief after the unbearable heat of the summer. But what about your skin? The humid and moist weather of monsoon may make your skin look dull and lifeless. Here are a few tips to keep your skin radiant and glowing even during the rains.

Wash your face

Keeping your face clean during the monsoon is of utmost importance as your pores can get blocked with dirt and pollutants. Make it a habit to wash your face atleast two or three times during the day. Also, do not forget to rinse your face before going to bed.

Give some extra care

Sometimes washing your face alone may not suffice to clean all those clogged pores. Give some extra care to your skin by using a toner if you have dry skin and an astringent if you have oily skin.

Moisturise at night

Did you know that your skin repairs itself at night? Therefore, it is essential to use a moisturiser not only during the day, but also at night. Moisturising before sleep keeps your skin glowing, delays wrinkle formation and helps to repair the skin.


Include exfoliation in your skin care routine atleast once a week as this helps you to get rid of dead and dry skin. Moreover, exfoliation also improves skin texture, helps to prevent breakouts and aids the skin to fight signs of ageing.

Apply sunscreen

You may feel that the sun may not hurt your skin in the damp and cloudy climate of monsoon. But even a slight exposure to the UV rays of the sun can cause damage to your skin. So apply your sunscreen before stepping out even during the rains.

Consume a skin friendly diet

What are the best skin care products? Moisturiser, toner or sunscreen? Infact, the answer is none of these. The best and most important things which have the capacity to keep your skin healthy and glowing are water, fruits and vegetables. Remember to have plenty of these to keep your skin in the pink of health.
