Monsoon Glam! Essential Tips for Perfect Hair & Skin

With monsoon rains, everything starts anew. Pitter-patter of rain and shiny green views can refresh the mind and soul. But the increase in humidity and sudden showers come with their set of problems with skin and hair. It is probably the cause of issues such as hair fall in monsoon and skin infections, but weather conditions vary and fluctuate very naturally. A specifically designed monsoon skin and hair care routine becomes very important to keep your face glowing and make your hair look stronger. In this article, we will tell you some practical tips for monsoon hair care and skin care in monsoon so that you appear your best even during this lovely but harsh season.

Why Monsoon Needs Special Care

A monsoon is all about continuous drizzles and dampness, a sure sign of a wet and humid season. As much as the feeling of rain is relaxing, increased humidity often adversely affects your skin and hair. The production of excessive oil can further improve with increased humidity, resulting in clogged pores and fungal infections on the skin. Similarly, due to heavy moisture content, hair tends to become frizzy and fall in the monsoon.

Common Hair Problems in Monsoon

  1. Frizz and Dryness: Hair can become dry and frizzy despite the humidity if the hair does not retain proper moisture.
  2. Dandruff: The dampness and humidity could lead to an overgrowth of dandruff.
  3. Hair Fall: Weak hair roots and scalp infections can be held accountable for hair fall, which increases during monsoons.

Common Skin Problems in Monsoons

  1. Oily Skin: The high humidity will make your skin more oily.
  2. Acne and Pimples: Clogged pores and excessive sebum secretion can give rise to acne.
  3. Fungal Infections: The damp weather aids in providing a proper place for the fungi to breed. They cause infections and rashes. 

The first step, therefore, should be understanding these challenges and coming up with an effective care routine.

Monsoon Hair Care Tips

1. Keep Your Hair Dry

As much as possible, keep your hair dry. Wet hair is more prone to breakage and fungal infections. If you get caught in the rain, rinse your hair with clean water when you get home and dry it thoroughly.

2. Gentle Shampooing

Wash your scalp and hair gently with a mild shampoo that doesn't have strong chemicals and sulphates. Use a product free of harsh chemicals and sulphates. Dr Batra's Hair Care range offers gentle yet potent options to clean your hair without stripping it of natural oils. Shampoo your hair 2–3 times a week; this helps the scalp breathe and remain free from dirt and too much oil.

3. Condition Regularly

Hair tends to become frizzy during the monsoons. The use of a conditioner can keep your hair smooth and manageable. Dr Batra's conditioners are profoundly nourishing and would help reduce frizz to a great extent. Apply conditioner from mid-length to ends. Avoid application on the scalp as it tends to make it oily.

4. Avoid Tight Hairstyles

Tight ponytails or buns exert pressure on the hair, causing tension breakage. Go for loose styles that will not stress your hair. Provide adequate space for your hair and ensure it is not pulled by wearing tight hair accessories.

5. Healthy Diet

Your diet also matters a lot in the healthy condition of your hair. Include food products rich in vitamins and minerals, such as green leafy vegetables, nuts, and seeds, which add lustre to the hair from within. Proteins, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids are vital for good hair.

6. Hair Masks

If weekly masks are applied to the hair, it will get the extra amount of moisture and nourishment that it craves. DIY with yoghourt, honey, or aloe vera-based hair masks would do. 

7. Anti-Fungal Treatment

The humidity could lead to dandruff and scalp infections. Antifungal shampoo's problems can be prevented. The anti-dandruff solution in Dr Batra's Hair Care products is very mild but is very effective once used daily to maintain a healthy scalp.

Effective Skin Care during Monsoon

1. Cleansing

The gentle cleansing of skin should be done in the morning. It removes extra oil and dirt from the skin. Avoid strong soaps, which may take the skin's natural moisture away. Dr Batra's has cleansers in his Skin Care range for all skin types. Cleanse your face at least twice daily to always have a fresh and free face from dirt and pollutants.

2. Exfoliation

Routine body exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells on the skin, thus preventing pore congestion. But do this only 2-3 times a week, so you don't overdo it and end up giving yourself irritation. Gently exfoliate with a scrub or an exfoliating mask recommended for your skin.

3. Moisturize

Your skin needs to stay hydrated even if the weather is moist. Use a light, non-greasy moisturizer. Shop moisturizers that are not greasy at all and don't make your skin feel oily, but still, they are great for the moisturization of skin. Apply after cleansing to trap moisture inside.

4. Protection Against Sun

You should protect your skin from UV rays even when cloudy. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Reapply each 3 to 4 hours if the exposure is for an extended period.

5. Hydration

To keep your skin hydrated, ensure you drink an adequate amount of water daily; usually, eight glasses of water are recommended. Also, include hydrating foods such as cucumbers, watermelons, and oranges.

6. Antifungal Powder

An antifungal powder is used to prevent fungal infections in areas prone to sweating. This would keep the skin dry, preventing rashes and infections. 

7. Excessive Makeup

Heavy makeup will clog your pores with no second doubt, resulting in acne on your face. Go for minimal make-up, and make sure that you clean your make-up before you go to bed. Wash your face by using a mild makeup remover on it to eliminate the most minor residues of makeup present on it.
