Monsoon Skincare:

Homemade Face-packs for Monsoon:

Rains are here, and so are the skin troubles. This humid season makes your skin look dull (because of sweat and oil deposits). So, You really need to adjust your skin care regime as our skin readily reacts to atmospheric humidity and dampness. Allow your skin to breath  by washing impurities and oil away from your skin, using a mild and non-soapy cleanser (Avoid perfumed and Anti-fungal soaps as they are harsh on your skin and sheds your skin of natural oils). Never rub your face while drying your facial skin as it can cause hyper-pigmentation.
