But what else you will do to maintain your skin acne free this season.
Madhu Arora who owns a skincare clinic in Delhi, suggests how to fight acne during monsoon:
Use anti acne products
Start using products that have anti acne qualities. Use a gel based face wash followed by a toner and then a gel based moisturizer. Salicylic based soaps are good for acne skin on back and arms.
Avoid touching the face
Acne may worsen during monsoon season if hygiene is not maintained. So, in addition to following a proper beauty system avoid touching the face if your hands aren’t washed.
Contract Body Tissues
If your skin is oily, an astringent should be used after cleansing. Wipe the face with it using cotton wool. Astringents are mainly used on the skin to penetrate and remove all traces of dirt and oil and constrict body tissues.
Avoid junk food
You have to keep an eye on your diet as well. Avoid junk food during monsoon season. Oily food and soft drinks tend to make the skin oilier. Consume at least three litres of water a day for healthy skin. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of warm water and have it first thing in the morning. Include fresh fruits, raw salads, sprouts, whole grains and curd in your daily diet.
Use a facial scrub
Preventing blackheads helps to prevent acne. If there are blackheads, a facial scrub should be used on the blackhead-prone areas. But do not apply scrubs on acne, pimples or rash.
