Kiehl’s Essential Guide to Keep your Monsoon Skin and Hair Healthy
Hair and skincare during monsoon could seem challenging with heightened levels of heat and humidity in the air. It could be a double blow for people with oily or breakout-prone skin. Anuj Mishra – Assistant Manager, Kiehl’s India jots down a few effective solutions for your monsoon skin and hair care woes:
ALWAYS CLEANSE AND TONE
Cleansers and toners are a necessity for gorgeous and healthy-looking skin. Use a gentle face wash which will deep cleanse the skin without making the skin seem dehydrated but rather making it appear firm and radiant.
USE HYDRATING OIL-FREE MOISTURISERS
Combating oily looking skin grows to become a fundamental enigma during monsoons. However, you still should moisturise notwithstanding how the climate is. It is always advantageous to use oil-free gel-based moisturisers, especially during the monsoon. This helps the skin appear hydrated without making it look oily.
DO NOT SKIP SUNSCREENS EVEN ON DULL AND DARK DAYS
Always keep in mind that monsoon does not symbolise that your skin is shielded from the damaging ultra-violet radiations of the sun. Therefore, without having an oily base on your skin and simultaneously being guarded against the sun’s ultra-violet rays is readily achievable with the oil-free sunscreen.
NO MORE DRY AND FRIZZY HAIR
Don’t let the monsoon showers get the better of you. Always take great care of your locks by routinely oiling them, buying a hydrating shampoo and conditioner.
DO NOT HEAT STYLE YOUR HAIR FREQUENTLY
You might cherish your hairdryers and straighteners, but the unfortunate truth is that these heat dressers are not fitting for your hair particularly during the monsoon season. Therefore, we advise you to halt the use of your heat-styling products as it makes the hair look dull and dry.
EXFOLIATE AT NIGHT
Excess oil on the face can eventually lead to the accumulation of dead skin cells on the skin surface. This clogs pores and makes the skin dull looking. This monsoon, add an exfoliator to your skincare regimen so that you can filter your skin and reduce dirt and environmental pollutants.
Your beauty routine can be the most beneficial when you make a conscious attempt to drink 10 to 12 glasses of water every day. This keeps your hair and skin well-hydrated and makes you feel fresh from within.
