Although rain offers a relief from the rising temperature, it also brings in its own set of problems. Your skin might be more susceptible to breakouts and hair to frizziness. The season also calls for makeup that is smudge proof and waterproof to avoid running messes. To help you out with the same, we have listed 10 must-have products to keep you rain ready!
Avon Super Shock Max Waterproof Mascara
For us makeup lovers, skipping mascara (that defines thick voluminous lashes) can be difficult. Having said that, one needs to be careful while applying. Don’t give it enough time to set and dry and you will land up in a messy situation! Monsoon can especially be a dreaded season for mascaras. A drop of rain can cause it to bleed all around your eyes.
The best bet is to pick one that is waterproof. Avon Super Shock Max Waterproof Mascara is apt for the season. The formula is weightless, yet makes the lashes look very thick. It comes with the added advantage of being clump-resistant and thus also fits the bill of those who wear contact lens too.
Since its launch in India, the Colossal Kajal from Maybelline has been every woman’s favourite. Being smudge proof, it is just the kind of beauty product that is needed during the damp wet rainy season.
It is on our list for several reasons, the kajal’s dark and intense black hue beautifully frames the eyes. Moreover, it is smudge proof, has a long staying power and is budget friendly.
Eyeliner and kajal work magic together to define the eyes and make it stand out. As a matter of fact, this combination is also used in the no-makeup look.
Avon’s Extralasting eyeliner is ideal for this season as it is fadeproof, smudge proof and waterproof. Plus, it lends a striking intense black colour. It stays for about 12 hours so you do not have to worry about re-applying.
As you are aware, removing the makeup is an important step that cannot be skipped. A good cleanser will not only help in removing all the residue but will also moisturise the skin. Biotique Face & Eye Makeup Cleanser is one of the best choices. It has nourishing almond, sesame, safflower, neem and staff tree oils that clean the skin gently and makes it soft.
The skin needs extra nourishment to glow during the rainy days. Lakme’s Peach Milk Body Lotion comes with the goodness of peaches and milk, a composition that helps in nourishing the skin deeply.
The lotion is made to suit all skin types and does not leave any oily or greasy layer on the skin. It is suggested to use regularly every day for best results.
Cleansing-toning-moisturizing is a mandatory routine during monsoon as well. The dampness and humidity can very well cause skin infection or sudden unexpected eruptions.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner is touted as among the best as it removes impurities, keeps skin balanced as well as healthy and fresh looking. Post application, the skin feels supple and well hydrated. It also helps to maximise absorption of follow-on products, mostly the moisturiser.
Rose water is a nature’s gift. It is an all-purpose, all-season product that is suitable for all skin types. This fragrant wonder removes dead skin and brings a beautiful glow to the skin. It works as a cleanser, toner and moisturiser too. Dabur Gulabari Rose Water is an ideal buy during monsoon as it is refreshing and comes with a soothing scent.
As the ad rightly says, TRESemme hair products enable you to get salon-style hair at home. They have a range that is carefully formulated for the damp monsoon season. We especially like this shampoo as it not only does the job of cleansing but also retains the natural texture of the hair. At the same time, it provides that lovely bounce.
Climate Control Conditioner from TRESemme is made to work according to the weather change. It helps prevent frizz, the main concern of this season. With climate controlling complex, keratin and olive oil, the conditioner moisturises and nourishes the tresses. It works best in hydrating the hair cuticles, thus protecting from humidity and static. This is one of the best products to keep hair conditioned and shiny through all the season.
With the extra humidity in the air, the hair is prone to heavy fizziness. Thus, taming it can prove to be a nightmare. A hairspray becomes the most essential of the season.
OGX Moroccan Weightless Healing Oil Spray allows you to bring back your hair to its normal natural condition. It instantly imparts an enviable shine and glows. The product comes with a high moisturizing capacity and helps to tame fly-a-way and frizzies.
Buy and use these products through the monsoon season and stay happily beautiful.
