Skin Care

It’s tough to keep your skin soft and supple during the monsoon. Because of the unpredictable weather, the skin tends to turn unpredictable and can fluctuate wildly between excessive dryness and oiliness. The good news is that it isn’t too difficult to protect your skin in this troublesome time.

The key points to remember are to eat healthy, keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water and never forgetting to be generous with the sunscreen, even if it’s an overcast day. Here are some other ways to ensure your skin looks its best this season:

*  Stick to a soap-free cleanser so that the skin doesn’t turn too dry.

*  Use a light lotion-based moisturiser, which will not only keep your skin soft but also brighten it up.

*  Avoid using heavy make-up and ensure that any traces are wiped off gently before going to bed.

*  A face-pack of honey and banana works wonders for dry and combination skin.

* Toning is a must before going to bed. Use a mild toner, especially if your skin is sensitive.
