The essential thing to remember during the monsoon season is to protect the skin from the effects of the humidity in hot countries like India.

Humidity causes the skin to sweat profusely. The air filled with moisture does not dry up the sweat from the skin easily.

Sweat contains the body toxins that need to be removed from the skin. When we sweat, the natural oil also comes out with it onto the skin. That’s why we feel so hot and clammy.

Both these –that is the sweat and the oil, along with the body temperature, become potential breeding ground for bacterial and fungal infections.

Advice from Osadhi’s skin consultant:

Avoid the use of heavy creams and moisturisers. The skin has enough moisture of its own in humid weather.

Do not use drying toners that are alcohol based. They will strip your skin’s protective acid mantle, leaving your skin vulnerable to infection.

The Solution:

If your skin is oily: 

  1. Clean the Skin with Osadhi’s: Skin Cleansing Powder. It will remove superficial pollutants and sweat, naturally.
  2. Wipe the skin with Mint And Neem Toner to keep bacteria away.  Use this as frequently as you need to, to freshen up the skin. It will close your pores temporarily, giving you much relief from the sweating. It will also keep the pores clean, avoiding acne and pimples.
  3. Use Clay Pack once a week, to deep- pore cleanse your skin.

If your skin is dry:

  1. Clean the Skin with Osadhi’s: Skin Cleansing Powder. It will remove superficial pollutants and sweat, naturally.
  2. Wipe the skin with Rose Petal Toner. It will clean and moisturise your skin simultaneously.
  3. Apply a little Aloe Rose Moisturing Gel.
  4. Use Botanical Pack once a week to freshen up the skin.

Enjoy the Monsoon!
