It’s that time of the year again, when the raindrops fall and there is greenery all around. But what comes with this lazy weather and gloomy clouds is its share of skin problems as well. It is certain that we can’t skip this season but what we can do is follow some easy – going tips and tricks in order to enjoy a happy skin during these dreamy days.
Your skin might find it strenuous to combat the rise in humidity levels and the unpredictable climate change. Which is why, here are a few steps that you need for pursuing Lacuna Light’s monsoon skincare routine without being laid back (trust us, it’s not as tedious as you think of it to be!) Let’s hop onto the deets..
What is the right choice of a cleanser during the rainy season?
It goes without saying that opting for clean brands with products that are free of parabens, sulphate and other toxic chemicals is perfect! However, you tend to lose a lot of water content from your body at this time of the year because of excessive sweating. Going for a sulphate free cleanser is a great option for any skin type as it is gentle on skin and will not strip off its natural oils and moisture. During Monsoon, getting rid of settled dust and dirt is needed without making the skin feel dry.
Toning tales for Monsoon!
We often miss out on this step while practicing our skincare routine. But hey! You need this more than anything right now. Your choice of skin toner will determine how your skin flares during this season. It’s a myth that opting for strong astringents will do a great job at treating acne and enlarged pores, but for a fact it’ll just worsen the situation. Get your hands on an Alcohol-free toner that uses natural ingredients like rose water, coconut, neem, cucumber etc. Spritz it on your face right after cleansing without fail.
Should you exfoliate during the Monsoon season?
The answer to this is, a big fat YES! You need to exfoliate your skin, come what may. This does not mean that you go overboard with it but, you need to get rid of the dead skin cells for reviving the luminous glow on your face. Exfoliation is also required to eliminate clogged pores and the concerns following it. You can either opt for clay masks with gentle polish particles in it or any product that has the property of chemical exfoliation (better than physical exfoliation for this season).
Moisturize and pair it with an SPF!
Monsoon doesn’t mean that you break your ties with a moisturizer and of course, a sunscreen! You should be following these steps all year round, irrespective of the weather. Just because you do not feel the scorching heat, doesn’t mean that the harmful rays are not affecting your skin. Similarly, most of us mistake oiliness for hydration. You need a lightweight, oil-free, water-based moisturizer to make your skin feel soft and nourished. Also, it’ll be a bonus if you look for a blue light shield in these products. Monsoon calls for more indoor time, more Netflix and more cell phone games. The HEV light really causes a lot of damage to the skin that we don’t realize. A blue light shield works its part over here and not only moisturizes but also acts as an unseen screen for your lovely skin!
So, what are you waiting for? Indulge into Monsoon self-care with us and enjoy a glowing, fresh skin!
