1. Cleansing Effectively:  During the monsoon, our skin tends to become oily and prone to breakouts due to increased humidity. Start your monsoon skincare routine with a gentle cleanser like a cold-processed or natural soap that suits your skin type to remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities. Avoid harsh cleansers that can strip away the skin’s natural oils, as this can lead to dryness and irritation. Use an organic face oil to cleanse make-up or for deep-pore cleansing

2. Face Toning for a Fresh Look: Follow it up with a toner that helps balance the skin’s pH level and tighten the pores, reducing the chances of acne and blemishes. Turmeric essential oil is a natural astringent with skin-clarifying and anti-microbial properties. Adding turmeric essential oil to rose water or even plain water or any moisturizer helps to tone the skin, and balance the oil production naturally. 

3. Hydrate & Moisturize: Humidity may make you feel like skipping moisturizing, but it’s essential to keep your skin hydrated. Opt for quick absorbing, oil-balancing light-weight moisturizers or gel-based formulas that provide ample hydration without clogging your pores. Look for ingredients like aloe vera and sesame oil to replenish your skin’s moisture levels. The natural tendency may be to avoid any oil-based product or to use strong astringents. But these can be counterproductive and lead to extra sebum-production by the skin. Do not forget to massage your body with a deep-acting massage oil to stimulate circulation, moisturize the skin and promote relaxation, leading to overall wellness.


4. Exfoliation: Exfoliation is crucial to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. However, opt for gentle ayurvedic exfoliators with natural ingredients like pulses, herbal powders, oatmeal, rice powder, or fruit enzymes to avoid over-scrubbing your skin. Limit exfoliation to 1-2 times a week to maintain your skin’s natural balance.



5. Sun Protection: Even on cloudy days, harmful UV rays can penetrate the atmosphere and damage your skin. Don’t forget to apply a sun-protection broad-spectrum sunscreen before stepping out. Choose a non-greasy formula that won’t leave a white cast and reapply every few hours, especially if you’re spending time outdoors.



6. Don’t Forget Lip Care: Your lips can also become very dry and chapped during the monsoons. Keep them hydrated and protected by using a lip balm with natural ingredients like kokum butter and nourishing edible oils. Apply the lip balm throughout the day to prevent dryness and maintain soft and supple lips.

7. Prevent fungal infections in sensitive areas: With excessive humidity and dampness, intimate areas, skin folds and feet may not become dry for extended periods of time. This can lead to fungal infections and bad odour. It is important to the skin folds dry as far as possible, and also apply anti-fungal and deodorizing creams regularly.

3 main hair issues during Monsoons

  1. Prevent Hair Fall: Hair fall is a common concern during monsoon. To prevent and combat this issue, incorporate a hair oil massage into your routine. Choose a natural hair oil blend with herbs like Brahmi, Bhringaraj, Methi and Amla and oils like coconut, sesame and castor. 
  2. Itchy Scalp and Dandruff: Humidity and sweat can lead to scalp issues like dandruff and itchiness.  Neem or rosemary or turmeric infused hair oil or serum will help combat dandruff and soothe irritation. Use a gentle cleanser which will not strip the scalp of its nutrients.
  3. Frizzy Hair and Hair Breakage: Monsoon brings increased humidity, which can cause frizz and make your hair prone to breakage. Oiling your scalp before cleansing, preferably overnight with nourishing hair oil or serum helps in deep conditioning which can nourish and repair your hair, keeping it smooth and manageable.


Hair care Routine to Nourish and Protect your Hair during the Monsoons

Step 1 - Pre-wash application of a herb-enriched nourishing hair oil-serum: Apply overnight or at least 2 hours before hair wash. This will have multiple benefits – it will prevent scalp problems like itchy, dry scalp and dandruff, it will address hair fall and it will deep condition the hair and prevent hair breakage

Step 2 – Keep your scalp clean: Wash your hair twice a week and using a gentle, pH-balanced sulphate-free shampoo, or natural herbal hair cleanser, and condition it to maintain your hair’s health and prevent dryness.

Step 3 – Post wash leave-in serum: A few drops of a nourishing leave-in oil-serum on the roots of the hair will benefit hair fall dramatically. It will also condition the hair and keep it frizz-free.

Step 4 – Natural styling: To minimise frizz and damage caused by humidity, it’s advisable to avoid excessive heat styling during the monsoon. Embrace your natural hair texture or try hairstyles like braids or buns that protect your hair from moisture and reduce frizz.

Last but not the least, ensure that you follow a healthy diet and have adequate water intake.  Nourishing your body from within is equally important for healthy skin and hair. Include fresh fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant-rich foods in your diet to boost your skin’s radiance, preferably in sync with the Ayurvedic Ritucharya. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins and maintain optimal skin and hair health. You can also drink herbal teas to boost immunity.


Conclusion: With these essential monsoon skincare and haircare tips from Parama Naturals, you can enjoy the monsoon season while maintaining your natural beauty. Embrace the refreshing rain, but don’t forget to take care of your skin and hair. By following a consistent routine and using natural and nourishing products, you can achieve a healthy glow that radiates from within. Remember, nature has all the answers to your beauty needs!
