MONSOON SKIN CARE ROUTINE 2017

To the moon and back, remember.
Welcome to my blog! Or should I say, welcome back to the Monsoon series.. Anyways, if you're following me on this blog for a while, you know very well that I am a skincare person. So definitely, my skincare routine changes with the season. lol. My skin gets oily in monsoon, so it's a must for me to alter my skincare routine accordingly. As always, links to buy my skincare products are mentioned at the end of the post. Also, if you want me to continue this series, tell me in the comments section what you want next? So, w/o further,
Let's dive in!

Definitely, my skincare routine begins with washing my face. And this season, I am altering b/w Everyuth Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash and Himalaya Fairness Kesar Face Wash. The Everyouth one clears the oil and dirt from my face. But sometimes when my skin doesn't feel too oily for the oil control treatment, I switch to Himalaya's face wash. It has mint in it which gives a soothing cooling sensation after wash. That's why I think this can be a great face wash for summers too.
Ps. It also claims to make skin fairer but I don't use it for that. Tbh, I don't even believe in such products or ever think about using these for fairer skin.
I am not a "daily scrub" person. I scrub my face once or twice a week. And I use Everyuth Exfoliating Walnut Scrub ofc! I have been using this since so long now and I am so in love with it that I don't think I'll replace this ever.
Currently, I am running out of face toner so I either skip it or use aloe vera instead. I have an aloe plant in my kitchen balcony, so I slice a tiny part of it whenever I have to use it. Definitely, I wash it properly first, then I slice it and gently massage it into my skin. Once it all gets into my skin, I use my face cream. I ran out of Roop Mantra too, so I thought to use Vicco this time (just for the sake of change). It moisturizes well but makes my face sweaty even in the lowest heat. So I use Lacto Calamine. It's an oil control lotion so it's perfect for the monsoon season. I take good amount of it in my hands and dot it on my face and neck prior to massaging it in. I extend it to my neck since I am having some acne there and this should help. After that I moisturise my lips and end my skincare routine.

MONSOON PAMPER DIYs! Let's Grow some Self-love♥


Don't stop until you are proud.
Welcome to my blog! This is the second post in the season special series! I love pampering myself and I love it, even more, when I DIY stuff for myself. I am sharing my fav and absolutely lit DIYs to pamper yourself in the monsoon! And the best part? All of these are super easy and won't take much of your time, so you can definitely invest it to do some other job. Easy peasy DIYs are always so fun to do so there's no way to procrastinate it. Without making this intro further long, 
 let's get to work!

Let's talk 'bout face masks first.
01. For this one, you'll need two amazing ingredients, Aloe Vera and Honey🍯.
-Take a small piece of Aloe and wash it well 'cuz we want its goodness and not the dirt and germs over it.
- Then slice off its edges and slice it from b/w. 
- Next, scrape the gel from the two slices of the aloe leaf.
- Then add a teaspoon of honey and mix well.
Voila! Your face mask's all ready! You can also add a few drops of your fav essential oil. 
Make sure your face is washed and all clean before applying a face mask. 
- Then apply the face mask and leave it to sit. When you'll touch your face, the slimy sense will change to sticky sense, and this indicates that it's ready to wash.
- Massage your face well and then wash it off with cold water.
You can definitely use the packed aloe gel but I like to make my own.  Aloe is used in so many DIYs so if you can plant this at your place it'd be so good for you.
02. For this face mask, you'll need fuller's earth and Aloe
Fuller's earth is so easily available in the market and it's a good stuff for your skin. It is helpful in treating acne and acne scars. It also absorbs excess oil and helps in improving skin elasticity.
Due to the last two benefits, your skin may feel stretchy and dry afterwards. So to balance that out and maintain the goodness of your skin, mix it with Aloe gel and apply the paste on your face. Wash it off with cold water once it's dry.

Let's get to hair masks! 
03. The first one is hot oil treatment. This term is a real thing when you have dry scalp. It moisturizes well and makes your hair flow with the wind! All you'll need is equal parts of coconut and olive oil and half part of honey.
-Mix everything in a little bowl and perform 'double boiling process' to heat it up. You can also warm the oil in the microwave.
-Make sure it ain't too hot or else you'll burn yourself. 
-Massage your scalp well in sections and leave it for minimum 30 minutes and wash it off. Then shampoo and condition as usual.

04. The ingredients for this hair mask are well known: one part of Aloe gel, half part of honey and two parts of olive oil. 
-Scrape the aloe gel. You can grind it in an electric mixer to get rid of the chunks. Or else it'd be tough to remove those from your hair afterwards.
-Mix everything and apply on your hair. Then massage well.
-Let it sit for 45 minutes or longer, then rinse it off. Lastly, shampoo and condition as usual.
05. This last hair recipe is for flaky scalp. It's a hair rinse and all you need is 1/4th tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in one cup of water.
-Rinse your hair with this and let it sit for a little while. Then shampoo and condition as usual.

Bonus DIY to cure acne!
06. This last DIY is for curing acne. My sister told me 'bout this. This ain't season specific but definitely helpful.
You'll need aspirin tablets and ACV.
-Crush an aspirin tablet and make a thick paste with apple cider vinegar.
-After cleaning your face, apply this paste on your acne and go to bed. 
-In the morning, rinse it off and proceed with your morning routine.

I'll suggest you to use the lowest power tablets and see if you're not allergic to it. The lowest power is 75mg, and I have been using 150mg. Also, be careful if you apply this near your eyes. It may irritate your eyes a little bit. In any case of allergy, wash off immediately and if redness/pain persists, see a doctor.

Monsoon Beauty MUST-HAVES.

We accept the life we think we deserve.
Welcome to my blog! We are in the middle of the monsoon and it might be raining when you're reading this. Lately, I realized I haven't done a monsoon beauty post yet. *wao* So, I decided to come up with a beauty version of must haves in monsoon and that's what this post is all 'bout! I have shared 08 products: skincare and makeup, that are literally must haves for this season. I believe in doing a couple more season special posts. If you want me to talk 'bout a specific topic, lemme know in the comments, I'd love to do a post on that!

#01. Oil removing Face Wash.
Monsoon comes with a lot of humidity. If you've noticed, your face gets really oily in this season. So, using specifically an oil removing face wash can definitely help. For oily skin, this is definitely a boon, and for normal/combination skin type, this will work too. But I can't be confident with my words for dry skin. Here I'll list two face washes and this monsoon, I am switching b/w these two only.  
The first one is Everyuth Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash and the other is Himalaya Fairness Kesar Face Wash. I don't use Himalaya one for the purpose of fairness but 'cuz it's really moisturizing and calming to my skin.

#02. Scrubs.
I absolutely love scrubs. Somehow, I don't find it easy for me to scrub my face daily even with a daily scrub. Scrubbing is important irrespective of seasons. I scrub my face every 3 days or once a week. It's an additional step to get rid of the dead skin and kind of harm your skin on a minute level so your skin will heal with new skin (you get it, right?)
If you're a sensitive baby, you can use jojoba wax or cellulose based scrub. These are actually daily scrubs so they won't irritate much. 
I use Everyouth's Walnut Scrub. I use it now;  I used it then, and I'll use it FOREVER!

#03. Oil-free moisturizer.
Moisturizing keeps your skin healthy. Better you say it's a way to show yourself how much you care bout you. And self love is the best love, so why not?
Oil free moisturizer is a real thing in Monsoon. Clean and clear Oil Free moisturizer and Lacto Calamine are the two products that I'll recommend you.

#04. Primer. 
Skipping primer is never cool. I realized what I've been skipping until I used it. It 'adsorbs' on your skin and forms a "smooth film" on your face and don't let the makeup get into your pores and hence prevents makeup breakouts *exhales*. It also helps your makeup to stay.  And in monsoon, everyone's face gets oily, so it'll be helpful to keep your makeup on. Currently, I have Colorbar Perfect Match Primer and it works amazing.

#05. Matte Foundation. 
Since your face will be oily in monsoon, it is good to cancel it out with a matte foundation. Actually, foundation is not a must, everything depends on your choice and what you are comfortable in. If you're gonna use foundation, go for a matte one. It will keep you looking fresh all day. Whatever product you'll use, make sure it is waterproof.

#06. Compact powder.
I never skip compact powder whenever I do makeup. It soaks up the excess oil and sets everything. Also, it prevents your makeup from melting into each other. Currently, I use Maybelline Superfresh compact. It's a matte compact powder and it smells so fresh!

#07. Matte blush. 
I do not bronze up my face a lot in monsoon. It just doesn't go with the season. I take some light shade contour to add dimension to my face. Also, I skip 'popping highlighters'. I use non-shimmery ones to brighten up a few areas of my face. Monsoon is the blush season. I keep everything else light so that my blush will brighten up my face and add pretty charm to the whole look.

#08. Waterproof mascara and kohl.
I am not a kohl person. I like them but I can't wear them on my waterline idk. lol If you're a person who loves kohl and mascara and liners, don't forget to choose a waterproof product unless you don't wanna resemble a pretty panda in the city.
