Simple Beauty Hacks For Those Rainy Days

Monsoons are a big relief after sweating it out in the hot Mumbai summers. But while the sound of the rain hitting your window and the smell of the wet earth may sound heavenly, it is so only if you’re sitting at home with a nice cup of coffee and a good book. But if you’re a working woman, this is all but just a dream as going out means you have to deal with oily skin, frizzy hair and a whole lot of mucky water. So here are some easy and simple beauty hacks everyone women should follow.

What Should You Do?

  1. Feet care

We all know that there’s no escaping the puddles of water mixed with things we do not wish to know so foot care should be one of your main priority when it comes to taking care of yourself during the monsoon. You can make easy scrubs like a coffee foot scrub by mixing a few tablespoons of coffee grounds, equal parts of sugar, and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Once you scrubbed your feet you can wash it off with lukewarm water.


  1. Avoid too many hair products

This is especially for those who have wavy and curly hair. Try avoiding styling your hair with too many products as this can damage your hair. Instead, opt for some light hair serums to help maintain it and here’s when buns and braids come in great use.

  1. Keep your skin clean

Because of the humidity, your face tends to get oilier. It is beneficial to wash your face at least twice a day with a face wash suitable for your skin. If you suffer from dry skin you could opt for a soapless gel based face wash.

  1. Minimal makeup

This one is a no-brainer. Keeping your makeup to the bare minimal especially avoiding heavy eye makeup helps keep your skin healthy and you will even avoid those pesky smudges. If you can’t do without it opt for waterproof products.

  1. Apply sunscreen

Sunscreen is not just a summer thing. Protect your skin with sunscreen that has a minimum of SPF20 to avoid skin damages.

  1. Diy face scrubs

And finally, pampering your skin at least once a week with face scrubs. It need not be with expensive store-bought products as even simple DIY scrubs using ingredients from your kitchen are helpful as well.
