1. Follow a skincare routine

A regular skincare routine includes cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. There are completely different skincare routines according to the type of skin. For example, with the oily skin, washing face frequently with Salicylic acid-based face wash and using water-based moisturizer is necessary. Other things to do are exfoliating the skin to remove the dead cells and using water-resistant sunscreen SPF 30 and hydration during rain season.

The humidity in the monsoon months also causes spots, pimples, and rashes. Eating food with turmeric and cummin can help us a lot. Because turmeric has an anti-inflammatory property for acne, pigmentation and cumins have detoxifying properties. Banana which contains several vitamins and minerals is suggested food because of its benefit with our skin.

It’s very important to keep the skin dry in the monsoon. The humidity film oil forms on the skin, causes itching, pimples, and acne.

Besides, you should wash your face 2 – 3 times a day to remove excess and remember to use tissue paper to wipe sweat.
