Top 10 Tips For getting Glowing Skin This Monsoon
Change in weather demands change in skincare too. With heavy rainfall and high humidity there are increased chances of bacterial and fungal infections and more chances of getting clogged pores and acne.
However, following a simple yet effective skincare routine can help in combating those zits and excessive oil without compromising your skin barrier.
Layering too many products during monsoon especially on combination and oily skin types can make the skin heavy and greasy.
Here are some skincare tips which can help your skin glow this season.
1: Gentle Face Wash
Washing your face twice a day can help in removing excess oil, dirt and grime. Using a soap free face wash can help in deep cleansing without stripping away the natural oils from the skin.
2: Serum: Exfoliate and Treat
Serums are concentrated forms of active ingredients in skincare which are more potent than regular Moisturizers. They are more target specific and lightweight. For preventing and treating clogged pores and mild forms of acne use a salicylic acid serum. Adding a serum with the goodness of both niacinamide and salicylic acid can help in preventing acne and treats dark spots on the skin.
3. Never skip moisturizer
Whatever your skin type may be, using a moisturizer is a crucial step. Avoiding moisturizer on oily skin can lead to more sebum production and breakouts. Invest in a good Moisturizer according to your skin type.
4: Invest in a good Moisturizing Sunscreen:
As the SkinCare industry is advancing, formulation of ingredients with multiple benefits in a single product is trending. Here comes the most important step of topical skincare which is using a broad spectrum moisturizing sunscreen that can double up as a moisturizer and sunscreen.
5. Opt for Minimal Makeup
Instead of applying full coverage foundations make sure to use lightweight makeup which are labeled non-comedogenic.This will help your skin breathe and won't clog your pores.
6. Stay hydrated
Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water everyday to flush out the toxins. This will help in the overall well being of your health, skin and hair.
7. Treat yourself with nature candies.
Having an antioxidant rich diet not only helps in boosting immunity but also adds glow to the skin. Consuming foods and fruits rich in vitamin C such as lemons, tomatoes, oranges, strawberries, kiwi etc. improves gut health and boosts skin health. You can also add a lower percentage of Vitamin C in your AM skincare routine if you don't have an inflamed or irritated skin.
8. Avoid overnight oiling of hair.
If you have acne prone skin avoid applying hair oil on the scalp and leaving it overnight. The oil usually drips down on the face resulting in clogged pores and acne. Instead you can just apply oil on the lengths of your hair one hour before shampoo to reduce frizz.
9. Exercise :
Exercising 5-6 times a week reduces stress levels in the body, pumps up your endorphins and improves blood circulation resulting in a clear youthful and glowing complexion, just remember to take a shower afterwards.
10 . Get your beauty sleep.
Topical treatments will only work if your body is well from inside. Make sure to get at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night to prevent dullness and dark circles.
Following the above mentioned steps regularly can help in giving a happy glowing skin this season.
