Everyone around has been complaining about the weather… and isn’t it oblivious as the scorching heat has now given rise to the terrible monsoon humidity. Does the weather ever bring in good news? Well if the answer is always no… you need all the tips and tricks to come out victorious on the other side of the weather every time. 

It is not always about beauty but also about health. Both go hand in hand and thus to feel beautiful outside you must ensure its all well on the inside. We shall bring to you loads of information about how you can survive this monsoon with simple things you can do at home. 

First up are natural and simple skin care tips that enable you to take care of your skin with minimum fuss and maximum benefits.  

Dry Skin Problems and Care: 
Dryness is due to lack of minerals that help skin maintain its elasticity and texture. It’s a sign of dehydration and lack water. The most simple and achievable solution to this problem is to drink as much water as you can. Water helps flush out toxins from your body and works as a cleanser and moisturizer that nourishes your skin from within. 

Oily Skin Problems and Care: 
Oiliness is a natural phenomenon that is directly related to ones genes and there isn’t a definite cure for it. However countering oily skin is an on-going slow yet gradual process that will change the way you feel. One of the key care routines that can be inculcated is to use warm water for cleansing as it helps break the oil and gives skin a natural shine.

Combination Skin Problems and Care: 
Skin types that swing from one extreme to another need extra skin care to match one with the other. Extreme caution and vigilance should be ensured so as not to damage the skin one way or the other. 

Though particular skin types need specific skin care routines, the following tips will ensure a healthy glowing skin irrespective of the condition: 

  • Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily, you can infuse it with lemon, mint and cucumber if needed. But do not add any artificial flavors. 
  • Use sunscreen and moisturize your skin every day, keep it hydrated from the outside as well for a soft and smooth feel. Avoid alcohol based skincare and make-up products as humidity opens your pores and you don’t want to clog them with irritants.
  • In case you suffer from suntan use home remedies depending upon your skin type to get rid of the discoloration. But if you don't want that hassle try the new Spinz, Sun-Tan Remover (back link to the product page) that is the new it-product to combat the Sunny Days in a simple 5 steps. I found it quite by chance last week and now it’s definitely included in my skincare routine! I find it especially useful after a day outdoors when I take my daughter to the park or when I’m out during the day for an event.It’s easy to use and requires a maximum of 10 minutes (1 min pre-up time, 1 min for application, 5 mins for working it's magic and 2 mins to clean and look your gorgeous self) to take effect. So whether I’m at home or on the go I make sure to have a Spinz with me at all times. It’s a great product as not only is it bleach-free but also is dermatologically tested for all skin types which are what I like best about it. So now I don’t fear the sun cause I now have #SpinzBanTheTan my knight in shining amour to save me.
  • Wash your face every 4-5 hours to get rid of the excess dust, oil and perspiration using a natural product that is rich in ayurvedic properties of turmeric, honey and almonds. 
  • Avoid shaving and stick to waxing or epilation that gives your body a perfect cleanse. Facials, body scrubs, body wraps. massages, manicures and pedicures are recommended to give your skin the much needed pampering. Apply milk cream or virgin coconut oil on your lips and under your eyes to reduce darkness and puffiness. 
But don’t forget the golden rule that to look gorgeous on the outside, you have to be healthy inside. So indulge in a fair share of vegetables and fruits along with plenty of fluids to keep your skin healthy, glowing and warm all through the seasons. 

Most of all go out and enjoy the beauty!
