Everyone loves and welcomes the droplets of rainfall after a hot and humid summer. But as we welcome the monsoon we also welcome many skin problems. You experience breakouts out of nowhere, your face is all sweaty and greasy, and there’s a general dullness in your complexion just like the weather outside. Reason? Your skin care routine is falling short somewhere. Clearly, with a change in the weather, your methods of skin care in the rainy season must also change. Here are some simple but effective tips that can help:
Cleanse your skin at least 3 times a day to get rid of the grime, oil, and pollution that you are exposed to during the day. Cleansing with a skin product that best suits your skin’s needs is essential. It is crucial for you to understand your skin type and its requirements. Make sure you use a cleanser that isn’t too harsh on your skin. Check out the Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash and other plum cleansers that will be best for your skin type here.
2) Sun Block (SPF):
An SPF may seem to be your ideal skincare product for the summers, but you cannot skip this during monsoons. Even during this time of the year, your skin requires protection from the harmful sun rays. The UV rays leave your skin looking dull and make it lustreless. We cannot stress enough on the importance of sunblock for your skin, so make sure this is one product you definitely use before you head out of the house.

Exfoliation for the skin is as important as cleansing. A ritual that should be performed at least once or twice a week, exfoliation is the best way to get rid of dead skin cells, blackheads, and daily pollution. Exfoliation helps maintain your skin’s glow. Plum’s Chamomile & White Tea Brighten-Up Face Scrub helps remove impurities that cause your pores to get blocked and leaves your skin feeling bright and glowing.
Here’s a couple more tips to keep your skin happy through the season!
- Try to avoid heavy make up as it can clog pores and cause breakouts. But if you absolutely must than ensure you use an effective make-up remover like the E-Luminence Simply Supple Cleansing Balm
- It is super important to keep your skin hydrated and nourished during the monsoons. You can try the Plum’s lightweight, non-greasy Green Tea Renewed Clarity Night Gel
- If you need a quick fix for full skin, a face mist will be your BFF during the monsoons. Make sure you hit refresh every once in a while with the Green Tea Revitalizing Face Mist
- Take extra care of sensitive areas. The skin on our lips and around our eyes is thinner than that on the rest of the face, so they need extra attention. Make sure you splash your eyes regularly, and keep your lips nourished with a lip balm.
