Easy Tips To Control Acne In Monsoon

Don’t we love the monsoons? After impatiently waiting for the rains to get some solace from the sweltering summer sun, we finally take a sigh of relief as the first raindrop hits the ground. But with the weather oh-so-good, the fresh air and all the pakoras with chai, we often forget that the super-oily fritters bring a series of acne along with it— and that is something we despise. And if those weren’t enough, the humidity takes a whole ‘nother toll on your skin.

Fret not, as the Vanity Wagon Team is here again with the most efficacious solutions to combat acne on any part of your body, literally! Not only we have safe product recommendations for you, but we also tell you easy tips to control acne in monsoons. You know how they say, prevention is better than cure.

Easy Tips to Control Acne in Monsoon:

1. Never sleep with your makeup on.

Your dermatologist, your sister and your best friend would not have emphasized more on the fact that you need to remove that makeup once you come back from a party. Forget monsoons, if you sleep with makeup on in any season, your skin is set to break out! You should also replace your oil-based makeup products with water-based products. #VWRecommends Thank You Farmer Be Beautiful Pure Make Up Base SPF30 PA++ Green


2. Hydrate yourself.

A saying that is as old as the hills, keeping yourself hydrated can in fact, go a long way. Not only does it help in keeping you fit physically, it also is a sure shot to keeping your skin healthy, supple and fresh.

3. Use an anti-acne cleanser.

Start right with the basics! Monsoon means humidity and humidity means oilier, gunky skin. Use a cleanser which has salicylic acid and is also mild and gentle on your skin.

#VWRecommends Minimalist 2% Salicylic Acid & LHA Cleanser, which not only provides deep cleansing & sebum reduction without drying out the skin but also gets rid of acne.

4. Make sure to use an alcohol-free toner.

Alcohol in skincare products is a no-no. And if you are struggling to find the right toner that does not irritate your skin, this is your holy grail. A toner like the Myoho Pure By Priyanka Green Tea Toner gives you a cooling feeling especially in this season. It refreshes your skin and prevents breakouts too.

5. Your body needs care too.

If you are only worried about the health of your facial skin, it's time you look beyond. It is common to have acne on your back, commonly known as bacne. Vanity Wagon has products that are free from toxins and which can help you reduce acne, not just on your face but your body. #VWRecommends the Chemist at Play Acne Control Body Wash with Ceramides

which will literally bring your sexy back; and the Fixderma Salyzap Body Spray for Acne, which is portable, easy to use and effective in reducing acne and acne marks.

6. Look for ingredients that are acne-friendly.

Be it a cleanser, serum or a moisturizer, if you want to control the growth of acne, or just prevent them to pop up look for the below ingredients:

-Aloe Vera

-Green Tea

-AHAs & BHAs

-Azelaic Acid

-Tea Tree Oil

These are some of the ingredients which can help alleviate acne and acne-prone skin.

7. Moisturize your skin.

Do not confuse oily skin with moisturized skin. You still need a moisturizer even if your skin secrets oil like the oils of the Middle East. What you can do is, look for an oil-free moisturizer for best results, and ditch those heavy lotions a huge bye bye! #VWRecommends Plum Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer, which is an oil-free, gel based moisturizer that regulates sebum production thereby controlling the growth of acne.

8. Regularly change your pillowcase and face towel

This is something which we feel we can get away with, using a pillowcase for as long as 15 days, or sometimes even a month! Ensure that your bed covers, pillow covers and face towels are changed regularly, so as to avoid any bad bacteria living in your surroundings, which can later thrive on your face.
