Glowing skin on rainy days

NEW DELHI: Use soap-free cleansers and avoid bleach and facials during monsoon for healthy skin, says an expert. Here are some tips from Pankaj Agrawal, senior homeopath at the capital-based

Agrawal’s Homoeo Clinic, to prevent your skin from diseases in monsoon.

• Use a soap-free cleanser and a good scrub to keep your skin moist all the time.

• An alcohol-free toner has high humidity to open up your pores (toning is usually followed after cleansing).

• Continue using sunscreen lotions and creams even if it is cloudy.

• Heavy make-up is a huge turn off during monsoon, so opt for a water-proof make-up.

• Apply lotion-based serum to keep your skin rehydrated and brightened.

• Avoid bleaching and facials during this season as they can be more harmful and can result in rough skin.

• Wash your lips at night and apply some milk cream. Avoid lipsticks and apply coconut oil if slightly cracked.

• Always wash your face, hands and feet as soon as you reach home with lukewarm water. This makes you feel refreshed and stay healthy.
