Monsoon Manual: Haircare, skincare and healthcare tips you need this rainy season

It’s that time of the year. It’s pouring down. And if you’re someone who loves monsoon, we’re certain you love the smell of pouring rain, the breezy winds caressing your face, and the refreshing vibes of the season. As much as there is a plethora of reasons to love monsoons, there is also a fear. After all, monsoon is the time when infections and diseases are on the rise due to the weather conditions and atmosphere. Not to mention, your skin becomes prone to acne, and your hair becomes frizzy.

Nevertheless, monsoon is the time to enjoy, not to be afraid. You can be on your guard against all these issues with a few prevention tips. This blog will provide you with tips on skincare, healthcare and haircare during monsoons. Spread your arms and embrace the rainy season.

Healthcare

Increase your vitamin C intake

As much as there is a need to exercise precautions on the outside, exercising the same on the inside is also essential. In simple words, you need to help your body be on its guard during this time of the year. This includes improving your immunity against infections and diseases on the rise in monsoons. So, the first thing you must do is increase your intake of Vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin known for its role in supporting a healthy immune system. As your body cannot produce vitamin C, it must come from your diet.

Limit eating street food

Secondly,  you must limit eating street food during monsoon. Yes, if you’re taking vitamin C to increase your immunity, you’re doing good. But it doesn’t mean you have a freepass of eating street food which is most likely to become stale in monsoons pretty fast. Aim to have home-cooked meals only.

Increase your intake of probiotics

Monsoon is the time when stomach infections are on the rise. Probiotics can help as they are essential in maintaining good gut health. Including probiotics in your diet can help your gut health improve nutrient absorption and become more resilient.

Prevent breeding grounds for mosquitoes

From dengue to chikungunia and malaria, water-borne diseases wreak havoc in monsoons. These mosquitoes thrive in dirty waters, which are common to develop this time of the year. Hence, to be on your guard and protect your loved ones from these diseases, you must prevent the development of these breeding grounds. Follow these tips to ensure that.

Skincare

Do not skip sunscreen in summer

You may think that you don’t require sunscreen on cloudy days, but you’re mistaken. Sunscreen is essential even on cloudy days because the sun rays still manage to penetrate even when you cannot see them around.

Wash your face at least 2 times

With added humidity and moisture in the hair, your skin becomes greasy easily in monsoons. This is why it is essential to wash your face at least two times a day, more if needed. While you are at it, do not skip moisturiser as overwashing can strip the skin of natural oils and lead to more acne.

Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells which promote the formation of new healthy cells. The practice is important all around the year, especially in monsoons as doing so can prevent the formation of clogged pores.

Haircare

Apply coconut hair oil

Coconut hair oil is a natural conditioner. Applying it before washing your hair can help tame the frizz and make your hair more manageable. Oiling can still help if your hair becomes greasy during monsoons.

Keep your hair up in a ponytail if need be

While using conditions and hair serums helps keep hair frizz-free during monsoons, if it doesn’t work for you, it’s best to tie your hair in a bun or ponytail when you are out in the rain. In case your hair gets drenched in the rain, wash it whenever possible and use a microfibre towel to wrap or dry your hair.

Closing thoughts

As we said before, monsoon is the time to enjoy, not fret. With these tips, you can go about your day and keep yourself safe and sound and healthy and look your best self. Happy monsoons!
