New Delhi: Actress Ileana D'Cruz says her monsoon beauty mantra involves a good cleanse ritual and use of the right moisturiser.
Ileana, the face of Pond's White Beauty, has a special skincare ritual for the monsoon. She has shared it for her fans:
* Cleansing: While we all love the rains, we often underestimate the damage this sticky weather can do to our skin. I ditch my regular cleansers for a light gel-based face wash. It removes the dead cells, unclogs pores and helps retain the skin's natural glow. Cleanse at least two to three times a day and use a soft cloth in place of a towel to dab dry your face. This will avoid stripping off essential oils.
* Moisturising: Even though it is sticky and humid outside, your skin still needs a light moisturiser to keep it naturally radiant and hydrated. Using moisturisers that come with Pro-Vitamin B3 has also helped me combat dark spots and reduced dark circles.
* Even though there is water pouring around, make sure there's enough going into your system. I double my intake of water to make sure my skin is hydrated. This also strengthens your immunity from skin infections the monsoon brings in.
