Singing in the Rain: Staying beautiful in the monsoon is all about adding light, colour and style
As the warm sunshine-filled days of summer fade away and dark clouds laden with rain roll into our skies, signifying the arrival of the monsoon, it is time to upgrade your beauty and skincare wardrobe.

The season is known for its high humidity levels, hot days alternating with cool rainy nights, and sultry air and all of this can wreak havoc on the skin. It is, therefore, always a good idea to do a skincare regimen makeover with every climate change, so that you can look good all year round.

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, women are indoors most of the time now, which means that though they may not need as many cosmetics as they would on other days, they do need to look after their skin in order to keep it in optimal condition.

Here is a compilation of some of the best beauty and skincare trends to keep in mind this monsoon, so that you can enjoy the season to the fullest…

Go matte

The monsoon usually brings many periods of extreme humidity that can play havoc with your skin. If you want to upgrade your beauty routine, put away all the rich creams and heavy foundations for the winter months. Choose gel-based products instead, that are light and will allow the skin to breathe.

Keep makeup as matte as possible also. Use lip stain instead of heavy lipstick but if these are too light for you, you could go for matte lip colours which will stay on for hours and not melt in the heat. But, since most of us are working from home, you can skip lipstick altogether and go for a light lip balm or gloss to look gorgeous.

Do-it-yourself beauty

If you don’t want to invest in skincare products either due to reasons of social distancing or because it seems to be a waste of money at this time, why not use the ingredients in your kitchen, as is the trend now?

From scrubs to toners to natural moisturizers, women have begun to once again use products in their kitchen to combat the season during the lockdown. Many women swear by sugar as scrubs, ice cubes as toners and honey masks or fresh milk cream masks or papaya packs.

Also, the trend at this time is to spend quite some time in a day pampering your skin. Using a face massager or a jade roller to tone the face can make a world of difference to facial contours and the jawline.
