Rainy season is one of the best seasons of all. Not only is this season a bridge between the summer and the winter, it’s also a great season to go au natural and let your skin breathe.

To begin with, know what your skin type is and understand what your skin needs in rainy season. If you don’t know your skin type, you can take this free Skin ID test and understand your skin better.
So, let me walk you through the 5 simple skin care tips in the rainy season.
Tip #1: Cleanse Your Skin Daily:
The best way to keep your skin clean and healthy is to get rid of the excess oils, pollution, dirt, grum, dead skin cells, and dust particles from your skin with a good cleanser. The purpose of a good cleanser is not only to clean your skin but also protect it, without stripping off your skin ’s natural oils and pH balance. If you are subscribed to SkinKraft’s customized skin care, you know what I’m talking about. The custom cleanser is free of all harmful chemical ingredients and helps protect your skin’s barrier without damaging your skin. It comes especially handy in Rainy season.
Tip #2: Moisturize:
You just have to moisturize your skin in rainy season too. Just because there’s a lot of humidity in the weather, does not mean that your skin will be fine. Your skin still loses its moisture with the change of season and temperature. A little bit of moisturizing will soothe your skin and help lock in the moisture.
Tip #3: Avoid Over-Exfoliation:
Exfoliating your skin from time-to-time is a good thing. It helps remove dead skin cells and brings out fresher skin cells, making you look youthful. Having said that, going overboard with exfoliating, especially during rainy season, can cause your skin to endure microscopic tears. Just a good ol’ exfoliation once in every 20 days will do the job.
Tip #4: Wash Your Face With Warm Water
It’s all fun and games until you realize that the amount of bacteria in the air multiplies in humid weather, especially in rainy season. This bacteria can grab on to your skin and cause itchiness, rashes, and breakout too. To avoid the bacteria build-up, use warm water (not scalding hot water) to wash your face. The hot water will also, as a bonus, will remove the excess oils from your skin.
Tip #5: Use Cleansing Oils As Makeup Removers:
It is pretty common for your skin to dry up in the rainy season. Using makeup removers that have a lot of alcohol in them can further dry your skin. To avoid this, you can ditch your makeup cleanser and use cleansing oils like Olive oil and Coconut oil to remove makeup (before cleansing). This will not only restore moisture in your skin but also makes your skin glow.
Your skin has its own dynamism and tries to adjust itself to the change of temperature and season. All the skincare tips that you follow will make it easier for your skin to adjust and look great.
