Skin care in Monsoon: Tips for Healthy Skin

Wash up.

Bathe in warm—not hot—water; use mild cleansers that don’t irritate; and wash gently—don’t scrub.

Block sun damage

Avoid intense sun exposure, use sunscreen, and wear protective clothing.

Don’t use tanning beds or sunlamps.

They emit the same harmful UV radiation as the sun.

Avoid dry skin

Drink plenty of water, and use gentle moisturizers, lotions, or creams.

Reduce stress

Stress can harm your skin and other body systems.

Get enough sleep

Experts recommend about 9 hours a night for teens and 7-8 hours for adults.

Speak up

Talk to your doctor if you notice any odd changes to your skin, like a rash or mole that changes size or color.
