Dr Atul Jain’s Skincare Tips For Monsoon!


Monsoon is a fun filled season during which everyone’s heart jumps with joy and amusement. It is definitely a breather after the scorching heat in the summers. But when everything looks green and happy around, the weather can cause your skin to lose its lustre and charm.

Different types of infection spread easily during the rainy season that may include problems with stomach, skin, hair and other body parts. Some of the common skin problems that may occur can be eczema, rashes, prickly heat, pimples, and boils.

The dampness in the air affects the surroundings which in turn rule our body, hair, and skin. Let us know more about the remedies that can help you take care of your skin during Monsoon.

  1. The first and most important of all the things is to keep your skin clean. Keep it free from dirt and oil as much as possible. Damp skin is the store house that attracts bacteria and fungi leading to rashes or itching.
  2. Maintain high standards of cleanliness washing your face about three to four times a day. This way you can get rid of excess oils and clogged pores. Look out for the ways to tone your skin by maintaining the nutrients level that is good for skin. If you are an avid user of the cleansers and face wash, avoid using those which are high on chemicals. It can damage the pH level of the skin.
  3. People with the dry skin can be irked with the dryness due to excessive humidity in the air. In such a case, candidates can use deep nourishing moisturizer. But on the contrary, if you have an oily skin, water based moisturizers are a perfect option.
  4. Another point of contention is the leakage of the UV rays. Be it cloudy or a sunny day, the UV rays from the Sun can cause havoc on your skin. Using a quality sunscreen lotion can help rectify this issue. Do not miss to use it even during the monsoon season.
  5. One simpler thing that can lift your skin’s health is when you remove the dead cells from the upper layer. Pick quality exfoliates that can help you improve the quality of your skin.
  6. Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water, about an 8-10 glass of water a day can also improve the health of your skin.
  7. For feet and hands, you can wash them after a good interval of time. Keep them dry and least wet, especially the feet when you plan to wear closed shoes.

Skin issues and problems have increased over the years. Or probably the increased awareness amongst the people has forced them to think about their skin’s health. Generous use of such cosmetic or skin care (that are free of high chemicals) product can also work on improving the health of your skin.

Other than what we have already discussed above, note that you should not take shower with extremely hot water. It reduces the immunity levels along with the deteriorating the skin’s health.
