With Monsoon,comes relief from sweaty and irritated skin. But at the same time, the monsoon season brings with it some unique skin care challenges that can wreak havoc on your complexion. We've rounded up some of the most common issues that you may face during this time of the year:

  1. Pimples and breakouts
  2. Dull and Dehydrated skin

These can be due to a number of factors such as;

  1. Increased humidity
  2. Rainwater exposure
  3. Fluctuating temperatures.

Skin damage due to the sun is also very common in monsoons because people often neglect applying sunscreen during the monsoons, assuming cloudy weather will protect them.

Neglecting sunscreen can lead to oily skin, pimple breakouts and clogged pores

Additionally, UV rays can penetrate clouds and cause tanning as well as premature aging. Applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with high SPF is essential during the monsoons. Water-resistant sunscreen should be used to maintain effectiveness in rain or sweat.

Protect Your Skin from UV Damage with Japanese Skincare
UV rays can still harm your skin even on cloudy days, so it is essential to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays during the monsoon season. Japanese skincare, also known as J beauty, can effectively protect your skin from UV rays.

Japanese sunscreens have high SPF and PA ratings, which provide superior protection against UVA and UVB rays. Here are some tips to get the best out of your sunscreens:

  1. Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and PA++++ rating and apply it generously on your face, neck, and other exposed areas of your body at least 30 minutes before stepping out.
  2. Reapply every 2-3 hours if you are out for an extended period. Spawake’s UV Protection Range has sunscreens designed for indoor and outdoor sun exposure, covering all bases.

Spawake's Aqua Gel sunscreen with SPF 30++ with aqua enriched formula is suited for indoor sun exposure and the UV Cut Silky Milk is a cream-based sunscreen with SPF 50+/PA++++, suited for outdoor sun exposure.

Apart from sunscreen, use a face serum like Spawake’s Brightening Solution Triple Care Cream with natural ingredients like vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin B3 which can help brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and dullness.

Since monsoons lead to a very humid weather, the dust and pollution from your daily grind can just stick to your skin and clog your pores throughout the day and lead to a dull looking skin. So it’s imperative to wash your face at least twice a day.

Keep Your Skin Clean and Glowing With a Brightening Face Wash

As mentioned above, the high humidity during the monsoon season can lead to excess oil production, clogged pores, and pimple breakouts. Which is why cleansing your face regularly is very important. Cleansing has numerous benefits;

  1. Balances your skin’s natural oils
  2. Prevents dryness
  3. Prevents excess oil
  4. Improves absorption of skincare products

To prevent dull looking skin, use a skin brightening face wash to not only deep cleanse your skin and remove impurities but also to brighten your skin.

Japanese skincare products are known for their gentle yet effective cleansing properties. To get the best results through your skincare, follow these tips:

  1. Choose a face wash with natural ingredients such as sea minerals along with actives such as AHAs that can help brighten your skin while keeping it clean.
  2. Avoid using harsh face washes or soaps that can strip your skin of its natural oils. Opt for a mild face wash like Spawake’s Brightening Solution Hydro Glow Face Wash that helps maintain your skin's natural moisture barrier.
  3. You can also try double cleansing, using an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser to thoroughly remove dirt and impurities from your skin.

Cleansing your face daily will also ensure that you prevent breakouts but there are other measures that you should take to be extra careful and avoid getting pimples in the monsoon.

Tackling Breakouts in Monsoons

The high humidity during the monsoon season can cause breakouts and pimples. Here are some tips to tackle breakouts:

Don't touch your face:Avoid touching your face with your hands as it can transfer bacteria and dirt to your skin, leading to breakouts.

Consult a dermatologist:If you have severe pimples or breakouts, consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Other Good Hygiene Practices for Healthy Skin in Monsoons
Apart from skincare products, good hygiene practices are also essential for maintaining healthy and glowing skin during the monsoon season. Here are some tips to follow:

Keep yourself clean and dry:Take a shower or bath twice a day, especially after getting wet in the rain. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel to avoid fungal infections.

Wear clean and dry clothes:Avoid wearing wet clothes and socks as they can lead to fungal infections. Wear loose-fitting and breathable clothes made of cotton or other natural fabrics.

Use a clean towel and bed sheet:Use a clean towel to wipe your face and body. Change your bedsheets and pillowcases regularly to avoid bacterial and fungal growth.

Apart from this, also ensure to really understand the products you’re using for your skin as your skin has different requirements for each season. So be mindful of the products you add to your monsoon skincare routine.
