The ultimate monsoon beauty checklist

As the rains make their way through the country, we can’t but heave a sign of relief. However, while we are dreaming of hot chocolates and hot pakodas, we can’t help but think of the skin and hair related issues that we might be in for.

For some the humidity in the air would lead to frizzy hair, while for others it might just lead to some unwanted breakouts and skin inflammations. Of course, the wisest idea is to keep your makeup bare minimal and sport a healthy au natural complexion this season. However, if you need some help with all of the above, we have rounded up some products that will act like a shield of sorts; plus we have a few options if you aren’t inclined to go completely bare faced this season.
