Like every other season, monsoon bring its own share of skin related problems. If you suddenly notice your skin turning oily or pimples making unwanted visits, fret not! Here's some expert advise on how small changes in your beauty regimen during this season can give you smooth and radiant skin...

1. Shield Your Skin

Even if it's cloudy outside, that doesn't mean your skin is safe from UV rays. Make sure to apply a light-weight sunscreen lotion before you step out, and avoid using oil-based products as they tend to block the pores and can lead to acne.

2. Take the Right Diet

Even if you're using the best creams, serums or face masks, there's no substitute for a nutritious diet to get that glowing skin. Add Vitamin A and Vitamin C rich foods in your diet including red bell peppers, pineapples, broccoli, pumpkins, tomatoes and berries, and you'll start noticing the difference within a few weeks.

3. Cleanse the Skin

Switch to a non-soapy face wash and clean your skin three times a day to let your skin breathe. It's not a bad idea to get drenched in rain and have fun, but make sure to wash your face afterwards and stay away from bacterial and fungal infections.

4. DIY Scrubs and Face Masks

If you've a normal skin type, make a smooth paste of a tablespoon of oats, rosewater and half spoon honey. Massage it for about ten minutes, and wash it off with cold water...say hello to clean, glowing skin.

For those with oily skin, mix half tablespoon of lime juice, a tablespoon of sugar granules along with one tablespoon of milk powder or fuller's earth. Apply it for ten minutes before washing off. 


And while we're on oily skin, lets not forget turmeric. Mix half tablespoon of turmeric with one tablespoon of honey and apply it on your wet skin for five minutes. Rinse it off with water and then, rub your skin gently with ice. Voila! You're set to flaunt your natural, glowing skin. 


And, if have a combination or T-zone skin, mix one tablespoon each of fine sugar (fine granules) and oats with water. Scrub your face, concentrating on the nose (T-zone) and the cheeks. Rinse it off gently after 10-12 minutes, and finish the procedure by dabbing your skin with rose water and oil-free moisturiser.

5. Don't Forget Fluids

Keep yourself hydrated with fresh fruit juices and aim to sip at least 2.5 - 3 litres of water everyday. Plus, a cup of green tea on a daily basis can do wonders to your skin. It's loaded with anti-oxidants, and minerals including, folate, manganese, potassium, magnesium...to name a few.

Bonus: it'll combat infections all monsoon!
