Smudged makeup, infections, itching and other skin and hair issues are daily nightmares when it rains. Hence, I have put together a list of monsoon beauty essentials(like a survival kit) to help ease your beauty worries.
Monsoon seems lovely when you are at home or at a hill station. But for those who have to make the daily commute to office in these rains, it can be quite a task.
Keep these beauty essentials with you and it will make your life a lot easier during the monsoon.
Monsoon Beauty Essentials To Survive Daily Office Commute
1. Hand Sanitizers
The number of germs and bacteria increase during the monsoons, leading to a rise in water-borne diseases. And since carrying a soap everywhere and washing hands is not possible, hand sanitizers can be handy to kill the germs and bacteria.
And now with the Covid-19 pandemic, it is more necessary than ever to stay safe. So do carry a hand sanitizer when you step out. They easily fit into any bag and are super easy to use before and after meals, especially while travelling.
Buy them on Amazon
2. Waterproof Makeup
You can’t wear your regular eyeliners, mascaras etc. during the rains. Especially in Mumbai where you get drenched within minutes of stepping out of your house. So waterproof makeup is an essential monsoon beauty product.
Try and avoid wearing too much makeup during the monsoon though. There are higher chances of acne and comedones due to high humidity levels in the air.
But if you have to, use waterproof makeup to avoid your makeup running down your face when it rains.
3. Wet Wipes
Wet wipes again come super handy during rains when you don’t have access to a water source. Use it to freshen up your face mid-day, fix any smudged makeup etc.
Mamaearth has biodegradable bamboo-based wipes which are quite affordable and environment-friendly too. Don’t use them on an everyday basis though, these are just a quick-fix for emergencies.
4. Tea Tree Hydrosol
A solution for all skin and hair issues during monsoon. Itchy scalp, dandruff, acne, breakouts, smelly feet, etc. Tea tree will come to your rescue for these and many more such issues.
It’s a great antimicrobial ingredient that fights bacteria and prevents fungal growth. Use it as a toner every day or spray it on the scalp to relieve itchiness.
5. Waterproof Bag
How else will you keep these essentials on you? A waterproof bag/pouch is a must have to store all your makeup and beauty essentials on the go.
You can reuse all those pretty pouches from your Fab bag or other monthly subscription services to keep these monsoon beauty essentials with you at all times.
