Why You Need to Add Sunscreen to Your Monsoon Skincare Routine

As the monsoon season and the rains set in, it is a common misconception that clouds act as an impenetrable shield against the sun's rays. UVB rays are responsible for long-term skin damage, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer. Even during cloudy or rainy days, UV rays can still penetrate through the clouds and cause damage to skin.During this time, many surfaces also become wet, such as pavements, roads, and puddles. These wet surfaces can act as mirrors, reflecting and intensifying the UV rays. As a result, the UV exposure may become more significant due to exposure.

It's important to switch to a monsoon-friendly skincare regimen and re-energize your skin for this season. Since the sun is hardly visible during this time of year, many individuals forego sunscreen in the mistaken belief that the cloudy, wet weather will protect their skin from solar damage. Even when it cannot be seen, the sun is still present. Moisturizing, face masks and sunscreen are essential because they shield us from the sun's damaging UV rays.

Unlocking Tips for Youthful and Healthy Skin During the Monsoon Season

Consider the tips below for healthier, younger-looking skin this monsoon season.

Using a gel-based moisturizer

The season calls for using a gel-based moisturizer as it can be beneficial for most skin types. Gel-based moisturizers are lightweight and won't feel heavy or greasy on the skin. They provide the necessary hydration without clogging pores, making it one of the easiest no-brainer products to use this monsoon.

Face wash for fresh skin

Consistency is key when it comes to facewash. Even if you stay indoors or the weather seems gloomy, make it a habit to use face wash every morning as part of your daily skincare routine. Facial cleansing is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. During the monsoons, our skin is more prone to dryness and breakouts, hence, it's important to use a face wash that helps with these problems. Daily cleansing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh look.

Protecting your skin with sunscreen

UVA rays can penetrate through glass windows, so even if you are indoors during a rainy day, your skin is still exposed to these harmful rays. Continuous exposure to UVA and UVB rays can lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. Moreover, prolonged exposure to UV rays can increase the risk of skin cancer.

Sunscreen also plays a vital role in preventing the development of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Rain or shine, these skin concerns can be exacerbated by sun exposure, making sunscreen crucial in preventing their appearance. A common myth is that tanning is claimed to be easily reversible. In most instances, it tends to leave behind dull skin with dark patches that can be challenging to get rid of.

A great solution for combating these concerns is the Serum-Boost Sunscreen Range. Formulated by the Pond's Institute, the products come in three variants in travel size and regular size in gel and cream formulations, that are non-oily, don't leave behind a white cast. The addition of Niacinamide-C in the product, helps in fading these stubborn dark patches and hyperpigmentation caused by the sun and gives your skin an even glow.

The rainy season does not provide immunity from the harmful effects of the sun UV rays and therefore sunscreen remains an essential and indispensable component of our skincare regimen, regardless of the weather. Regular and adequate use of sunscreen can protect our skin from premature aging and dark spots. So, don't forget to finish your skincare routine with sunscreen, even on those cloudy and rainy days, and enjoy the rain with a sense of complete protection for your skin.
