We discovered our treasure trove of expert skincare secrets and brought out the best 6 monsoon skincare tips. Follow these super-simple and highly-effective tips to unlash your radiance in the rain.
Tip #1 - Used Water Based Moisturizers For A Gel-lorious
The Indian climate reaches its sultriest peak during the monsoons when it’s as humid as it’s hot! Using heavy, oil-based moisturizers increase your chances of getting clogged pores which leads to painful breakouts. However, your skin also needs deep hydration to maintain it’s youthful bounce, glow and overall health.
So, what’s the solution? Gels and gel cremes. If you have normal to oily skin then pick the Lotus Herbals Active Aloe + Niacinamide Brightening Boost Gel. It’s a water-based moisturizer that’s been formulated to deeply hydrate your skin while fading tan and dark spots. The aloe in it is perfect to calm irritated, acne-prone skin during these crucial months.
However, if your skin leans towards the drier side, nourish it with the Lotus WhiteGlow Vitamin-C Radiance Gel Creme SPF 20 I PA+++ or the Lotus Herbals YouthRx Anti Ageing Transforming Gel Cream SPF 25 PA+++. These advanced formulations combine the lightweight texture of gels with the nourishing nature of rich creams. Include them in your routine to plump out fine lines, brighten skin and boost glow.
Tip #2: Don’t Leave Home Without Sunscreen
Sunscreen is your skin’s umbrella, and you need it even when it’s cloudy. The invisible, powerful rays of the sun can spear through even the thickest cloud cover and penetrate your skin. This ages your skin without your notice. And also darkens spots and hyperpigmentation.
During the monsoons, you must invest in a waterproof, sweat-resistant sunscreen like the Lotus Safe Sun Sports Super-Stay Sunscreen SPF 70 PA+++ - Lotus Herbals. It’s magical formulation stays on your skin even when you sweat profusely in the humid air, or the mischievous rain comes unannounced.
Note: Don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours to maintain it’s efficacy.
Tip #3: Cleanse Deeply But Gently
Monsoon is a carnival for germs. On top of that, your skin produces a lot more oil, a.k.a. the food for acne-causing bacteria. Oil and sweat mix up to become a magnet for dirt and grime that settle into your pores to cause pimples and bumpy texture.
It cleans your skin deeply and nourishes it with brightening vitamin C to elevate your skin’s brightness by fading tan and dark spots.
Tip #4: Show Your Skin Love With Some Scrub
Oily, sticky skin prevents dead skin cells from naturally sloughing off your face. It acts like glue that holds on to layers of dead skin, hiding your glow and brightness. So, exfoliating your skin during the rainy season is more important than ever.
Use a brightening scrub that will -
- Exfoliate your skin
- Feed it with nutrients to brighten and lighten
- And clean out your pores to prevent clogging.
The Lotus Herbals CLAYWHITE Black Clay Skin Brightening Face Pack and Lotus Herbals TEATREECLEAR Anti-Acne Oil Control Tea Tree Face Pack are two great options to exfoliate and control excess sebum production.
But, what about the dry skin beauties? The Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Oatmeal & Yogurt Scrub and Lotus Herbals Radiance Boost Ubtan Face Scrub exfoliate dry flaky skin and nourish it at the same time for incredible softness and clarity.
Tip #5: Use Lightweight Serums
During the monsoons, your skin can look dull and lackluster, and piling on heavy products can do more bad than good. It is the time to whip out lightweight but potent formulations that will sink into your skin to give you lasting brightness. Just as your body needs vitamins to function at its best, so does your skin.
2 skin-supporting ingredients that dermatologists love for brightening are -
Use the Lotus Herbals Active Aloe + Niacinamide Brightening Boost Gel - Lotus Herbals to brighten skin, strengthen the skin barrier, regulate excess sebum production and calm irritation.

Tip #6: Depend More On Facials, Less On Makeup
Monsoon is the worst month to wear a full face of glam. When skin is more prone to clogging, makeup can only add to your skin problems. So, instead of hiding your flaws like hyperpigmentation and texture, it is time to treat the root cause with regular facials. And show your bare-faced glow.
