Monsoon has its own perks of romantic getaways, but in real-life situations, it might bring you ghastly ruined makeup. Excessive humidity and overcast skies steal the fun out of your day to day beauty goals. Monsoon is another name for sweaty skin, badly smudged kohl and pimple laden skin. If this seems to be your own monsoon story, then we have some tips for you. First, you should flip through your makeup and beauty stash and see if your products are monsoon-friendly or not. For example, if you are using the same old cream cleanser, swap it out with a mild oil cleansing wash. If your kohl smudges with the slightest humidity, bring a waterproof liner home. Tweaking your daily makeup and skincare habits will help when you are looking for that gorgeous monsoon-glam. Check out our top 10 monsoon skincare and beauty picks.
