Ayurveda believes that monsoon is the most unfavorable time for health as Dosha imbalances can leave their signs on one’s skin, overall health and well-being. By incorporating some minor changes in your daily monsoon skin care routine you can help keep your skin fresh and glowing. Use soap free cleansers and a good scrub to keep the skin moist. Always use an alcohol free toner, kept in the fridge and sprayed as often as required during the day. A miniature size is handy to carry in your bag.
Hair care in monsoon is also an essential aspect as the rain water can make your scalp oily, accumulate dirt and damage the texture making it greasy. Warm oil massages, using a suitable hair cleanser and conditioner best suitable for your concerns is of utmost importance.
A balanced diet and healthy lifestyle are two essentials as the weather conditions shift drastically. Your meals should be cooked and ideally served warm, including your breakfast taken at regular times every day. Include ghee to boost immunity. Warm soups, stews, risottos, dals, rice, pasta or curry should be a part of your regular diet. Avoid all kinds of processed or fried, cold, raw or dry food.
Opt for herbal teas, hot water or warm milk spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg before bedtime is calming and will help with sleep. For the very first time, we have curated regimes for you that have been pre-set according to your skin types for this season.
