Yeah! you might guess that today I share with you about Hot monsoon June. OMG! monsoon has just started but the humidity level is rising and so is the temperature of the climate. I just hate monsoons as it ruins my skin and hairs.
Today I will share with you, my monsoon hack for saving your hair and skin. Personally, I kind of shed my hairs in monsoon. 3 months of monsoon are really heck for me. My skin feels oily and my hairs get dry.
For this problem, I try to take care of my hairs n skin, by nourishing them on daily basis. Basically, I don’t follow a regime, but in monsoon you need an extra love for your skin n hairs.
For your monsoon dry hairs, you must try oiling your hairs every alternate night and wash them off with your daily shampoo in the morning. The oil nourishes your hairs and gives them extra love with restoring the moisture in your hairs. For extra conditioning, you can add a tablet of camphor in your hot oil and apply (for little shine).
Another way to nourish your dry hairs is to use Patanjali Aloevera gel. This gel is useless for my skin, as I have oily skin. But very effective for dry hairs. Simply, add a spoon of aloe vera gel and lemon juice to a bowl and add some almond hair oil drops to it. Apply it to your hairs n scalp for 30 short minutes and wash off. You can also steam your hairs for conditioning. This is as good as 1000rs Spa in a salon.
For dull and oily Skin
There are many blogs n vlogs that will tell you as to how to manage with oily skin. But I will tell you my own experience with my oily skin. In monsoons, I get this shine on my face which is not very good. To remove oil from my face I prefer scrubs. Face Scrubs are the best way to remove oil and dullness from your face. You can use any readily made scrubs from the market. Or use my favorite scrub (DIY) to remove oil.
For this Binny special DIY scrub, you need a spoonful of besan, rice flour, and orange lentils flour (aka masoor daal ka atta). Just mix it with your favorite combiner like simple cold water, rose water or milk and apply. Important part comes now!!!
Once you have applied it, let it dry for 10 minutes and then start scrubbing it. Mind well to stand in your bathroom near wash basin while scrubbing it, else you will end up messing your room 😉
Give very gentle strokes and then again let it dry and then wash off. Feel the Magic!!!
Hope you like my ideas and will try. Do let me know in the comments whether you like my monsoon skincare and haircare regime.
