Embrace the waterproof make-up: We know how it feels when the makeup refuses to stay on the skin and gets washed out either in the humidity or the downpour. But yes, you can look your best with few simple makeup tricks, even during the messy season. Restrict your make-up to the minimum and use waterproof products.

Take good care of skin: Don’t forget that monsoons demand a little extra care for your skin, as there is already a lot of moisture in the air that can make your skin rough and dull. Use skin packs to keep your skin breathing.

Hair care: Go for an uncomplicated hairstyle, which doesn’t require regular maintenance. It’s best to keep a messy, wavy hairstyle, as the rain will only add up to the style. Washing your hair daily with a good mild shampoo is advisable so that your scalp remains clean all the time.
