Do you love wearing kajal or a mascara but are scared the rains would wash it away or smear it over your face? With waterproof makeup this is history. You can opt for waterproof liners, mascaras and even foundations for your daily makeup regime. Your favorite cosmetics brand will surely have an exclusive range of these. Wearing makeup which isn’t water resistant will either peel of quickly during the rains or require frequent touch-ups. Thus, wearing minimal makeup but making sure it is waterproof will save a lot of your time. Do remember, never to compromise on quality of cosmetics you use.
Skin & Hair Care
During monsoons the hair and skin suffer a lot of damage due to high humidity in the atmosphere. Oily skin and scalp are results of this. Make sure to carry a pack of tissue papers to regularly wipe away oil from your skin or even wipe off the dirt from your feet during emergencies. Carry hair bands and hair clips (avoid metallic accessories as they can rust due to water contact) to keep your hair in place and manageable. These little things can go a long way in making you look fresh and presentable even after you have encountered heavy showers. Wearing and carrying sunscreen lotion is like every other season is a must. You may not see the shining daily, doesn’t mean you can do away with sunscreen. Last and the most essential item you must carry in your bag is a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated.
With these basic yet important items you can protect yourself from the rains and make the most of them too. You do not require carrying a big bag loaded with hundreds of items, you can pack light and smart, without making huge investments and have delightful monsoons!
