Beautiful Mane this monsoon

Your hair care routine and style too needs a makeover this monsoon. Some tips:

Hair care: Avoid colouring your hair this season. Blow drying and ironing are not good options, as the repeated flow of hot air can cause breakages and split ends. Say no to hair brushes this season. Combs work best to de-tangle knotty strands after leave-in conditioner is applied on the hair.

Tress style: Select hairstyles which are easy to make, simple and uncommon. Go in for shorter hairstyles this season. Bangs and fringes are to be avoided. Instead, opt for the short Chelsea bob. Natural and wavy hair also looks beautiful.

A monsoon tip: Some hair wax applied to the hair, makes it look natural and keeps it manageable.

Clips and more: Fancy gem studded glittery clips on a short bob look classy for a night out. Broad hairbands in nude or funky colors also look good, as they make both curly and straight hair look chic and stylish.

    Sickly, dull, oily-looking skin is common during the rainy season. Nondescript itching also occurs occasionally. A few tips on how to keep your complexion glowing:
    Use a face scrub twice a week to exfoliate.
    Avoid heavy moisturizing creams or oily foundations and cream-based color makeup. Use a light mousse or a matte compact or simply a few drops of calamine lotion as a makeup base.
    A face wash containing alpha hydroxyl acid (like Ahaglow) helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
    # Use a toner each time you wash your face to close the pores and restore your skin's pH balance.
    # Chemical peels (skin treatment performed by dermatologists) are also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin and the monsoon is the best weather for them -- there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session. There are a variety of peels available nowadays -- skin-lightening peels, acne peels, peels for sensitive skin, arginine peels for under-eye circles etc. Ask your dermatologist for details.

    Have a healthy monsoon!

    Add this tip also
    You must also dry your hair after shampooing thoroughly. Use a hair dryer with a diffuser attached and keep it six to eight inches away from your hair to avoid singeing/ burning. If you're caught unawares in a rain shower and don't have a hair dryer (say at the office or a cinema hall) flip your hair under the hand dryer in the bathroom and run your fingers through it till dry.

    Use a non-soapy cleanser that ensures deep pore cleansing to wash away impurities from your skin.
    A non-alcoholic toner incorporated into your basic cleansing regime will prevent skin infections and eruptions.
    Use a face scrub twice a week to exfoliate.
    Avoid heavy moisturizing creams or oily foundations and cream-based color makeup.
    A face wash containing alpha hydroxyl acid helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
    Never rub your skin while drying it.
    Don't avoid the sunscreen lotion during the rainy season. As long as there is daylight, our skin needs protection from UVA and UVB rays.
