Different seasons call for different skincare remedies. But we often tend to take care of our skin only during the summer and winter season. A majority of us tend to take monsoons for granted and ignore the love and care that our skin needs during this season, which eventually leads to acne, dryness, dead and dull skin.
Monsoons can be extremely relaxing however, the humidity in the air can lead to dehydration, making your skin dry and itchy. The humidity also attracts bacteria which later develops into pimples.
Hence, be it any season, summer, winter or monsoon, wash your face at regular intervals to avoid dirt and impurities from settling on it. At times you can also use a wipe if you’re unable to wash your face.
