Hair Care Tips For Monsoon –


1. For those who have dandruff, do not wash hair over dry scalp but try massaging with curds or refined oil for at least 45 minutes. Thicker oil like castor is not for monsoon as it is very hard to wash it away from hair and scalp. Massaging with warm coconut oil is best for the season.

2. For the hair to remain thick and black, apply warm oil mixed with curry leaves.

3.Use a herbal or a good anti dandruff shampoo. Wash hair every 2-3 times a week else the hair gets damaged due to pollutants in the air. For rough hair, using conditioners are a must.

4. Hair coloring or straightening is not a good idea for the season as it takes very long to wash your hair and dry, stay as natural as possible.

Skin care in Monsoon


Use a face scrub twice a week to exfoliate.
Avoid heavy moisturising creams or oily foundations and cream-based colour makeup. Use a light mousse or a matte compact or simply a few drops of calamine lotion as a makeup base.
A facewash containing alpha hydroxyl acid (like Ahaglow) helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
Use a toner each time you wash your face to close the pores and restore your skin’s pH balance.
Chemical peels (skin treatment performed by dermatologists) are also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin and the monsoon is the best weather for them — there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session. There are a variety of peels available nowadays — skin-lightening peels, acne peels, peels for sensitive skin, arginine peels for under-eye circles etc. Ask your dermatologist for details.
Have a healthy monsoon!
