Men, we know you prefer your grooming routine to be quick and easy; Monsoon is one season where your face and body needs some extra TLC. Oily face, sticky dandruff, fungal infections and body odour are some of the common problems faced during monsoon; but that’s no reason to hold back this season. Incorporation of some basic grooming habits in your routine will help you look and feel your best this season. Here are our top 5 Monsoon grooming tips.
Wash Your Mug
Monsoon equals humidity, this leaves a sticky layer of oil on your face. The easiest way to combat this issue is to use an oil-control face wash. Wash your face at least twice daily with a facewash, and with plain water every three or four hours. Another tip is to keep it well moisturized and sun protected, however, make sure your moisturizer is water based and the sunscreen is gel based with a mattifying effect.
Here’s what we recommend:
Trim The Facial Hair
Monsoon, unfortunately, is not facial hair friendly. Your beard or stache will feel sticky, itchy and will have frayed ends. The easiest solution to this problem is to trim your facial hair to a bare minimum. Now if that is not an option for you, invest in a bread/ mustache grooming kit to keep infections and itch away.
Here are our recommendations:
Anti Fungal Care
You are more susceptible to fungal infections in Monsoon, around certain areas of your body such as underarms, groin, folds of the neck, feet etc. Using an anti-fungal talc can keep infections at bay. Also wet feet often causes odour. Using a foot spray can eliminate this woe.
Here are our picks:
Deodorize, and then some more
Clothes that aren’t quite dry or are damp mixed with excessive sweating during monsoon can cause some serious body odour. Using an antiperspirant, and deodorant is the need of the season. And boys, shower twice a day to keep the odour at bay.
Here are what we suggest:
Manage Your Mane
Monsoon can cause a havoc on your mane, washing it daily or at least every alternate day is the need of the hour. Also, using a leave-in conditioner can keep the frizz away. Keep the use of styling products to a minimum this season, and if you must absolutely use them, use the ones with moisturizing properties. Also including an anti-dandruff shampoo can come in handy in fighting off that stubborn dandruff.
We’re sure with these essentials in your arsenal you’ll sail through the season with ease, looking like a million bucks!
