MONSOON- the word itself evokes a feeling of calm and peacefulness. But just like everything else in life, there are a few cons associated with this season, one of them being—skin issues. During the rainy season, your skin is more susceptible to plenty of bacterial and fungal skin infections.
Those with oily skin are more prone to developing blackheads, whiteheads and acne during this season due to the production of excessive oil and sweat. The oils lead to the accumulation of dirt on the skin’s surface, which in turn creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Whereas those with dry skin suffer from flaky, irritated, itchy skin due to dehydration. Along with these regular issues, this year, we also need to take into consideration the pandemic.
Aside from the climate, staying in wet clothes for long hours also encourages the growth of bacteria and fungi on the skin which can cause issues like Athlete’s foot, ringworm, and Eczema. After reading this, we’re sure that the monsoon season might not sound so appealing to you. But no need to worry, we’ve got the best solution that will keep your skin soft and protected so that you can stay in love with this season—The WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion is what you need to tackle all your skin woes this monsoon.
What makes this body lotion different is the fact that it is enriched with germ-fighting as well as moisturising ingredients. Some of these ingredients include cocoa butter, which is known to soften and hydrate the skin, tea tree oil, which acts as a natural antiviral and antibacterial agent, rose and cucumber extracts which are known to refresh and soothe irritated skin. These ingredients mixed together create a concoction that nourishes, smoothens, moisturises and keeps the skin germ-free. The WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion is also free from parabens and sulfates, making it suitable for all skin types, all year round.
It’s important to moisturise your skin the moment you get out of the shower. This is because water evaporates quickly, which leads to dry skin. To lock in the moisture after shower, pour a generous amount of the WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion on your palms and massage it on your skin until it is completely absorbed.
For best results, cleanse your skin with the WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Wash before applying the lotion.
The WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion is also travel-friendly and fits right into your bag. If you happen to get drenched in the rain, wipe yourself dry and use the lotion to keep your skin moisturised and to contain the growth of any bacteria and fungi.
Other precautions you can take to protect your skin:
There are other protective measures you can take during the monsoon to avoid skin infections.
1) Do not stay in wet clothes
Staying in your wet clothes the entire day will create a breeding ground for germ and bacteria and could lead to fungal infections.
2) Drink more fluids
Your water intake shouldn’t decline during the monsoon as compared to the summer. The humidity can cause excessive sweating which leads to dehydration, so be sure to drink at least 7 to 8 glasses of water a day. This will keep the skin hydrated from within and will prevent dryness.
3) Use facial scrubs
If you have oily skin, add facial scrubs to your beauty routine. Oily skin can lead to clogged pores making it more prone to acne. Using a facial scrub once or twice a week will help remove dead skin cells, dirt and debris that settle on your skin.
4) Don’t forget the SPF
We are all guilty of skipping out on SPF during the monsoon. Here’s the thing, just because it’s cloudy, doesn’t mean you’re safe from UV rays. These harmful rays are present all year long, hence it’s important to always use sunscreen. If you have oily skin, opt for a non-comedogenic sunscreen which won’t clog your pores.
That being said, remember, the key to soft, germ-free moisturised skin starts with the WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion. So add it to your cart RN and treat your skin to some natural goodness.
