Dead skin removal
The monsoon season can turn your skin into a breeding ground for an excess of germs and microbes. That can cause issues to your skin, big time. To prevent this problem, exfoliate your skin with a homemade gentle scrub to get rid of dead skin and unclog your pores. Mix a teaspoon of coffee grounds with one tablespoon olive oil and gently massage your face, neck area and rinse with warm water. In case you have oily skin, prefer using honey for better results.
Monsoon also entertains a high level of damp content in the environment, thus making your skin sensitive to acne, rashes, and other skin situations. When exfoliating your skin, you’re adequately unclogging your pores, which not only prevents whiteheads and blackheads but also gets cleared of other defects—namely acne.
People with dry skin type tend to suffer more during the monsoons. Exfoliation prevents this query too, removing dead skin cells and increasing the blood circulation leading to a plump/healthy outer look.
Sensitivity is also one kind where you need to take on more precautions while exfoliating cause when scrubbing at a fast pace can lead to redness and rashes. Instead, try a mild exfoliator manually or apply a gentle washcloth.
Thus, exfoliation leaves you with smoother and radiant skin. To maintain a set of results, continue the process with a good moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. You must already know about the importance of sun cream, it’s a must if you move on to exfoliating. Just make sure you start slowly to determine the exfoliants your skin can take in and follow up with your moisturizer and sunscreen.
