How to Keep Skin Fresh and Hydrated in the Monsoon
Ayurveda believes that the Monsoon is a highly critical time for the skin, as Dosha imbalances can lead to various troubles for different skin types. The season requires additional care for the skin as humidity can make it appear dull and flaky. Moreover, humidity and constant temperature fluctuations can cause breakouts, especially on sensitive skin.This calls for special skin care tips and techniques because your usual skin care may not be sufficient. Your skin needs to adapt to the sudden change in humidity, temperature and dampness caused by the rains and therefore it is highly recommended to take certain steps to ensure and maintain healthy and glowing skin.Along with rain showers and cooling temperatures, Monsoons are also synonymous with infection and open pores. Hence, it is highly recommended to keep the skin thoroughly cleansed during the season. As a pioneer in natural, Ayurvedic and effective products, Forest Essentials recommends applying organic facial masks twice a week, during the Monsoon season. Not only do these facial masks help to deep clean the skin, but also assist in minimizing open pores. Interestingly, Forest Essentials has a variant for every skin type, which can be personalized with a mixing liquid.
Normal to Dry Skin
One of the most beneficial natural ingredients for dry skin types is Honey. Honey's natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from environmental damage and replenish skin moisture. Honey absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent that visibly minimizes pores, therefore the Forest Essentials Facial Treatment Masque Madhulika Honey Lep leaves the skin feeling soft and supple, even during the rains. Moreover, this masque helps to tone and give an instant glow to the skin. The combination of natural herbs along with Raw Cane Sugar and organic Honey, eliminates dead and dry skin cells, to leave a smooth porcelain finish.
Combination or Oily Skin
With humidity at its peak, cleansing and refreshing the skin during Monsoon season is a must for oily skin. The Ayurvedic Facial masque recommended for oily skin is the Facial Treatment Masque Sandalwood & Nagkesar, that permeates the tissue, deeply nourishes and rejuvenates the skin. Sandalwood has a cooling and soothing effect on the skin, while purifying it of its impurities. Additionally, the potent extract of the herb –Nagkesar, firms and tones the skin. Therefore, the masque is excellent for revitalizing dry, dehydrated and mature skin as well.
While Forest Essentials certainly offers the best facial masques, it is essential to pick the right variant for your skin type to maintain a healthy glow during the rains!
