Here Are The 5 Useful Tips On Skin Care After Soaking In The Rain:
Take Shower After Soaking In The Rain:
One of the most important and immediate things to follow after soaking in the rain could be taking shower with tap or normal water. Use an anti-bacterial or else some natural soap are also available in the market which contains anti-bacterial properties. Apart from this you can even mix couple of drops of antibacterial solution in your bath water to fight off the fungal or infectious bacteria.
Wash Your Face Wisely:
While cleaning face don’t forget that the face skin tend to be more gentle and delicate than the other part of the body so better not to use anti-bacterial soap on face as it may make you feel dry out. Instead go for tea tree oil or Azadirachta indica oil cleanser that not only cleanse your face from impurities or pollution but also keep off the fungal bacteria.
Toning And Moisturizing:
Toning and moisturizing are the parts of any healthy skin care regime so don’t skip it even on monsoon. After having bath toning and moisturizing helps to tighten your skin pores and also retain the natural moisture to your skin and give you a younger looking glow. For toner and moisturizer, opt for those which are free from alcohol and also that suit your skin as well. You can even prepare moisturizer at home by mixing 2 teaspoon of glycerin in 1 cup of rose water.
Many people skip sunscreen on monsoon as they think clouds can protect their skin from the ultra-violet rays of the sun but that’s a wrong perception which needs to be changed. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen at least of 30 SPF before stepping out of your home. Go for water-proof make-up and water resistant sunscreen so they don’t wash away in the rain. However, keep applying the sunscreen whenever you need it.
Carry Dry Tissue Papers:
Always carry couple of tissue papers in your handbag during rainy seasons. So that if you get drenched in rain willingly or unwillingly you can wipe out the rain water immediately by the tissues to dry the skin and thus prevent bacterial development which always occurs in the humidity. You can also dust some compact powder to ensure the dryness.
