Simple & Essential Tips for Monsoon

When it comes to Monsoon care, many worry about skin, hair & make-up. I agree it is important, but what bothers me more are the general trivial things which might cause more harm. Let us see, what are those and how to avoid it.

  • Food – This is the time to avoid street food, oily food, ice-creams and anything heavy which might cause a disturbance in the digestive system, as your body generally takes time during monsoon to digest food
  •  Towel – Always carry a small towel which keeps you dry, immediately after you drench. Use it wisely to quickly dry the neck, back of your head, hair, ears and feet as it might provoke infection.

  • Sinusitis & Migraine – People who suffer from sinus, migraine (like me), I request you to immediately dry the back of your head and hair after you drench and avoid tying your hair with a tight clutch, as it retains water and causes sinus headache. If possible, you can take a steam with a drop of eucalyptus oil to reduce the excess sinus buildup. Also, use a cold air haridryer to quickly dry hair.

  • Foot Care –  This is yet another important step which many of us avoid. Rainy season and downpours have water logging everywhere and we do walk for our needs. We return back home, remove the footwear, wash and just ignore. Take some time and a simple DIY is to use rock salt + lemon + mild shampoo in warm water, to cleanse feet (just rock salt would also do!)

  • Hot water bath – It makes more sense to use warm or hot water for cleansing and bath. It heals the senses apart from keeping us away from the infections.

  • Nails – Moist Nails are No, No! Cut it neat or clean it very often as they invite trouble.

  • Footwear – Make sure to use good footwear to avoid slippery. It is better to use new footwear during monsoons and something which makes you comfortable to walk in water with a rugged and good grip (avoid heels at any cost)

  • Sunscreen – Even though it rains and sun is carefully hidden, UV rays the ability to affect our skin. Always apply suncreen and have it handy.

  • CTM – Not to forget our routine! Cleanse, tone and moisturize well. Mild toners like rose water is highly recommended to tighten and close pores.
  • Neem Oil – To avoid itching/infections, apply pure neem oil and massage all over the body before hot water bath once a week.
