Summers have been tough on your skin, and you might think that the rains won’t have the same harsh impact. However, they present their own set of challenges.
Skin rashes! Dry skin! Pigmentations! Excess sebum production!
The air around us can become highly humid, whether we are indoors or outdoors. It is important to acknowledge that our skin can be negatively affected by this increased humidity. Our skin requires some assistance and proper care in such conditions.
During monsoon season, it is crucial to not skip applying sunscreen, regardless of whether it is sunny or cloudy. Our skin is still susceptible to the harmful effects of UV rays. While we cannot avoid the positive aspects that monsoons bring, it is important to prioritize a good skin care routine and take extra precautions.
