One important thing for all the ladies who love (apple of eye meaning) makeup – don’t overdo your makeup in the rainy season. Just apply a light makeup on your face wherever necessary and use lighter shades of lipstick.
Protect your Lips
It is very important to protect your lips in order to avoid dry and chapped lips. This weather is bound to strip the moisture off your lips, therefore carry a lip balm and use lip scrubs to keep them moisturized. Drinking plenty of water can keep your lips hydrated.

Don’t forget your feet
Also, clean your feet using lukewarm water every now and then after returning back from the rains as there are higher chances of fungal infections such as athlete’s foot. Use an anti-fungal cream and ensure to go for a pedicure this season.
DIY FACE SCRUBS
Lemon and Sugar Face Scrub
- 1/2 fresh lemon
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp organic honey
Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid boosts new cell production and breaks down the protein that keeps the dead cells hanging onto your skin.
Raw honey is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. It kills skin infections, including acne. Honey reduces inflammation and hydrates the skin.
Add lemon juice and olive oil in to a bowl until they mix together. Add the honey and whisk or stir quickly until the ingredients bind together into a medium-to-thick consistency. You can add a little amount of olive oil depending on how thick you want your scrub to be. Apply to clean face in gentle, circular motions. Be cautious of using on open wounds, as lemon has a tendency to sting. Leave on for 7-10 minutes and rinse with cool water.
Honey and Oatmeal Facial Scrub
- 1/2 cup of uncooked oats
- 2 tbsp honey
Oatmeal is a very gentle exfoliant ,so it’s perfect for sensitive skin. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and is very moisturizing.
In a bowl pour in the oatmeal and add a little bit of water then add the honey. Stir all the ingredients until a smooth thick consistency is formed. Apply on the face and leave for some few minutes then wash off with warm water and apply any kind of moisturizer to the face.
