Monsoon season is a season which can be enjoyable and irritating at the same time. During monsoon too much hairfall takes place and skin becomes sticky. But everything has solutions so has the problem of monsoon.Detoxification of the skin is essential during monsoon as it prevents allergies, puffiness and skin diseases. You can add gram flour, lemon and green tea to make your skin look refreshing.
Dermatologist, Kiran Lohia and Bloosom Kocchar who is an Aromatherapist and Chairman of Blossom Kochhar Group of Industries have shared some awesome face packs for the monsoon season. Lets have a look the packs: The first face pack includes besan (gram flour), honey, green tea, and rose hip oil. Firstly add three tablespoons of besan and then add one tablespoon of honey. The reason honey is used for face packs is that it has antibacterial properties in it and it has the capacity to halt excess bacteria on the rainy season. To make it smoother, you can add one or two tablespoons of green tea in it until desired thickness is reached. You can also add rose hip oil in the quantity of four to five drops to moisturize your skin. Mix up the pack and apply it for 20-30 minutes.
If you want your skin to look a bit more refreshing than usual then cucumber works best for it. Mix cucumber juice and rose water together then let it chill in the refrigerator with a few green tea leaves. Cucumbers work great at reducing irritation and an addition of rose water in it is just calming. Potatoes calm blemishes and rashes that can pop up during monsoon season. If you are really struggling with acne during the rainy season, grate a raw potato and squeeze out the juice using cheese cloth. Mix one-two teaspoon of lemon and some rose water before applying to the face. The high acidity of lemons adds enhanced acne-fighting properties while rose water helps calm the redness surrounding blemishes. Leave this mixture on for 30 minutes then wash of with water.
Rather than using harsh soaps that have a drying effect, make your own special skin powder. Mix equal amounts of green gram powder and gram powder and half the quantity of fenugreek seeds. Prepare a paste by mixing all these in rosewater and apply this pack generously on the entire body. This method deeply cleanses and refreshes the body. For removing tan, during monsoon add one teaspoon each of sandalwood powder, milk powder, and orange peel powder. To it add two drops of lavender essential oil. Mix all this with yoghurt and a squeeze of lemon, apply on face, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse afterwards. Mash a banana and beat it after adding a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Brush it on the face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes till it dries. Then rinse it off with plain water. This recipe is best suited for dry to normal skin.
With these homemade remedies you can get flawless skin in monsoon too.
