5 Best Monsoon Face Packs And Masks You Should Try Out April 9, 2015

Most of you may be pretty careful about your skin care routine. But while you may have very specific skin care treatments for the summers and winters, one season where we do not pay much attention to detail is monsoon. Monsoon is a time when our skin experiences various problems. It is a time when you experience severe humidity, sweat, grime and heat as well as dampness and moisture. With the constant change in temperature and weather, your skin is constantly getting affected.

Monsoons bring with them a new set of skin problems. Your skin may be suddenly oily and shiny, or it may start looking dull and dry. No matter what skin type you have, almost everyone gets affected during this season. This happens mostly because of the high humidity, and also because of the fact that we wash our face repeatedly to clean all the grime and sweat.

If you too have experienced these problems, or would like to prevent them from happening, here are a few ‘special’ face masks that will help to keep your skin problem free and fresh:
