Monsoon skin care dos and don’ts: Your rainy season rulebook with Spawake

The rhythmic pitter-patter of raindrops on your windows is a soothing symphony of the monsoon season. As much as we relish this natural spectacle, it brings along a set of challenges for our skin. The increased humidity, sporadic rains, and lurking UV rays can wreak havoc on our skin's health. But fret not! With a well-crafted skincare routine, you can gracefully navigate the rainy season while flaunting a radiant complexion. Welcome to our monsoon skin care rulebook, designed to keep your skin healthy, glowing, and monsoon-ready.

Face Wash essentials


1. Gentle Cleansing: Humidity can make our skin produce excess oil, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. To combat this, opt for a gentle cleanser that removes dirt, pollutants, and excess oil without stripping away your skin's natural moisture. Spawake's Brightening Solution Hydro Glow Face Wash is your monsoon savior with its hydrating formula and natural ingredients like seaweed extracts.

2. Frequency: Washing your face twice a day, once in the morning and once before bedtime is crucial. This prevents the accumulation of sweat, dirt, and bacteria that can contribute to breakouts.

3. Ingredients: Natural ingredients like seaweed extracts in your face wash help maintain the skin's pH balance and ensure it stays nourished despite the changing weather.


1. Harsh Cleansers: Avoid harsh, drying cleansers that can strip your skin's moisture barrier. The goal is to cleanse without disrupting the skin's natural balance.

2. Over-cleansing: While it might be tempting to wash your face more frequently, overdoing it can actually lead to more oil production as your skin tries to compensate for the lost moisture.

3. Hot water: Steer clear of hot water for cleansing, as it can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated and prone to irritation.

Pimple care


1. Spot Treatment and Pimple Serum:Monsoons often come with unexpected pimples. Spawake's Pimple Range is the best treatment for pimples on the face. It’s enriched with salicylic acid and is your ally against these unwelcome guests. The Pimple Solution Purifying Serum is very effective at zapping those unwanted pimples. You can use it as part of your daily face care routine as a serum and you can apply it as a spot treatment as soon as you spot a pimple forming to reduce inflammation and speed up healing.

2. Pimple face wash:The Pimple Solution Refreshing Face Wash seeps deep into your skin, cleanses pores and helps prevent pimples by removing excess sebum, dirt, and impurities. It is a fast and airy foaming formula infused with Menthol that leaves your skin feeling revitalised, cool and fresh. Being a non-comedogenic face wash, it is the perfect solution for all problems related to pimples.

3. Consistency: Knowing how to take care of your face is crucial and regularity is your key. Do your pimple care routine consistently for the best results. Patience is key; visible improvement may take a few days.

4. Consultation: If your pimple situation seems persistent or severe, consulting a dermatologist for personalized advice is recommended.


1. Picking pimples: The temptation to pop a pimple is strong, but doing so can worsen inflammation, lead to infection, and cause scarring. Hands off!

2. Heavy makeup: Minimize heavy makeup during the monsoon. If you must wear makeup, choose non-comedogenic products to avoid clogging pores. Try Spawake’s range of BB and CC creams which are light on your skin and give it a smooth finish.

Excessive product layering: Using multiple pimple treatment products simultaneously might seem like a quick fix, but it can actually irritate the skin further. Stick to one targeted treatment at a time.

Importance of Sunscreen


1. Broad-Spectrum Protection: The monsoon sun can be sneaky, with harmful UV rays even on cloudy days. Spawake's UV Protect Aqua Gel is ideal for medium sun protection every day. With SPF 30/PA++, this sunscreen prevents skin darkening, spots and freckles caused by harmful rays of the sun. The UV Cut Silky Milk is ideal for high sun protection every day. With SPF 50+/PA++++, this sunscreen provides strong protection against the sun by preventing skin darkening, spots and freckles.

2. Frequent reapplication: Don't be complacent, reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours, especially if you find yourself outdoors.

3. Cover exposed areas: While applying sunscreen, don't forget often neglected areas like your ears, lips, and the back of your neck.


1. Skipping sunscreen: Rain or shine, never skip sunscreen. UV rays can penetrate clouds and cause skin damage even when it's not sunny outside.

2. Neglecting sensitive areas: UV rays can be harsh on delicate areas. Ensure comprehensive protection by applying sunscreen to all exposed areas.

3. Using expired sunscreen: Check the expiration date on your sunscreen. Using expired products can compromise their effectiveness in shielding your skin.

Step by step skin care routine for monsoon

1. Cleansing: Begin your routine with Spawake's Brightening Solution Hydro Glow Face Wash or the Pimple Solution Refreshing Face Wash, based on your skin needs. Gently cleanse away impurities and prepare your skin for the next steps.

2. Treatment: Apply a thin layer of Spawake's Pimple Solution Purifying Serum to affected areas, allowing it to work its magic on those unwanted pimples.

3. Moisturising: Despite the humidity, your skin still needs hydration. Opt for a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturiser to keep your skin nourished. The All in One Moist Soothing Gel is a good option for an all-around moisturiser. Its lightweight consistency absorbs easily into your skin.

4. Sun Protection: Finish off with the UV Protect Aqua Gel or UV Cut Silky Milk to shield your skin from the monsoon sun's harmful rays.

Additional Tips

1. Hydration: Keep your skin hydrated from the inside out by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

2. Diet: Incorporate antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables into your diet to promote skin health from within.

3. Avoid touching face: Minimize touching your face, as your hands can transfer bacteria and exacerbate breakouts.

4. Clean makeup brushes: Regularly clean your makeup brushes to prevent bacterial buildup and potential skin issues.
