Monsoon Wisdom For Your Skin And Hair


Hello Ladies

Since the monsoons are still on I thought I would do a post on basic skin and hair care during this season… I know a lot of you out there must be working women and managing your hair and skin along with the house, husband and kids is no easy task.  Well, fret not!  Remember some of these tips and you will be good to go.

Heavy make-up in humid weather is never a good idea.  Light and sheer is the way to go.

  • Waterproof mascara and liners, creamy eye shadow and transfer-resistant lipsticks work best
  • Wash your face with an oil-balance face wash and rub an ice cube over it for 5 -10 minutes to reduce sweating so that make-up stays on longer.
  • Women with oily skin should use a mild astringent; those with dry to normal skin can use a toner after the ice to cool and refresh the skin.
  • Avoid foundation; use light powder instead.
  • A sheer film of light brown, pastel or pink creamy eye shadow can be used along with a thin line of eyeliner.
  • Use a single coat of waterproof mascara if you must.
  • Soft matte lipsticks applied with a lipliner are contained better than glossy, liquid lipsticks


Moisturising in the rains is important!

  • If you spend a lot of time outdoors, the constant  wetting and drying of skin can rob dry skin of essential moisture and have an over hydrating effect on oily skin.  To combat this use a mild soap and follow up with an oil moisturiser for dry skin and water based moisturiser for oily skin.
  • For a quick pick-me-up: Grate a cucumber and add a little milk to it.  Lie down and apply it to the face.   Leave it on for 10 minutes.  This will cleanse, soothe and also act as an astringent on your skin.  This will also refresh and tone your skin.

Hair Care during this season:

  • Humidity: The best protection is to keep your hair sparkling clean; shampoo as often as you like but use a mild product
  • Beat Dandruff:  Apply and leave white vinegar on the scalp for at least 20 minutes prior to a bath and shampoo well.
  • Hair Loss:  A mixture of coconut milk and lemon juice helps prevent hair-loss; while dahi, eggs and lemon juice rubbed into the scalp accelerate hair growth.
  • Short hair:  Beat the frizz by applying a serum after you wash your hair.  Else simply rub a drop or two of olive oil over it.

      • Wat is the story behind this ?? Hey mere gali mein a streetking/queeen has given birth to 3 awesome puppies .. I was like Awww !! kitna cutey cutey hai !!

          • ok .. the street dogs are usually called Streetking or streetqueen depending on their gender and absolute dominance on the street they live in.

            In my street we have 1 king and 3 queens (he has a harem, and he’s very protective of them !!! its funny to see, but he’s super scary!!! ) now he and his one harem lady have given birth to 3 puppies, I happen to go near them yest night, and he came flying from a building to the street like a super hero and bared his teeth and those fangs !!! His dominance is so absolute on this street that no other Indian dog is even allowed inside the galli, he’s quite huge in size and scary to hell !!!!

            I plan to call CUPA if they can come and collect these puppies and give them to diff Dog lovers. And call the local Bang Corp to see if they can come and vaccinate these street king and his harem !!!

              • I have picked up many street puppies and got them home so .. I am not scared of them, puppies don harm you, the big ones are a diff story. this fellow is built like a cheetah with the most cruel eyes i have ever seen in a dog. he’s got grey-ish cat eyes which look at you as if he’s looking at an enemy !!

                And ever since i got my own pet, he’s even more hostile towards me. and got his revenge by biting my dog the other day !!! :-((

                    • MAKE sure you see which dogs are going. Get ribbons long enough to tie loosely around their necks. say if 4 dogs are going from your area. Tie them around the necks or get the catchers to tie the ribbons.

                      They are easy to identify. Make sure when they come back u are there to see it or someone trust worthy. they should not be left in the wrong place.

                      The mother of the pups can go when the pups are at least 6 months old. until then she will not be on heat. Immediately that ROADSIDE ROMEO needs to go. One dog is enough to impregnate 10 dogs per mating season. If each one delivers 3 dogs min then 30 strays dogs for nothing…many of them suffer as pups and die and starve and get kicked ..what for? all the best…..go ahead!
