Gentle exfoliation – Make your skin look more radiant and glowing by using a good scrub to remove the dead cells of your skin.
Keep dry skin moisturised – If your skin appears to be dry, apply a good moisturizer. Applying rose water or almond oil or glycerin before going to bed is also very beneficial for such skin types.
Keep oily skin clean – To treat oily skin one needs to remove excess of oil by cleansing it twice or thrice in a day. Avoid heavy cleansing creams, use lukewarm water to wash your face.
Tips for Hair –
Keep your hair dry – Try to avoid getting wet in the rains as the rainwater has chemicals that can harm your hair. Keep your hair covered either using a scarf or hat. If your hair gets wet, do not tie it up. Instead let it dry naturally.

Always Protect your hair – The best way to keep your hair healthy during the monsoon is to protect it from rain. Tie up your hairs neatly to protect it.
