Milk Or Rose Water Wipes

Warm weather can be divided into two categories - humid or dry. If it is a humid climate, you need astringent properties like the one present in rose water to clear the dirt on your skin.
And if it is a dry weather, mild moisturizing properties like that present in milk will work well on your skin.

How It Works
Dip a cotton ball into some rose water or milk, whichever you use. Dab it on to your skin. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse it clean.


Aloe Vera Moisturiser

An intense moisturiser combined with humidity can clog your pores, trap bacteria, giving rise to blackheads. A light formula will nourish your skin without making it too greasy. Antioxidants and aloesin in aloe vera do exactly that.

How It Works

In a bowl, extract fresh aloe vera gel. Place it in the refrigerator for five minutes. In the night before going to bed, massage the gel on to the skin in a round circular motion. Leave it overnight. This homemade mask for Delhi weather will give you smoothest skin possible!


Lighter SPF

We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of a sunscreen, it protects your skin against free radicals, slows down ageing and keeps the pores clean. Your usual sunscreen may have high formula, which may make your skin feel heavy. Go for milder water-based formulas, which can create a protective shield on your skin, without making it greasy.


Honey Lip Scrub

Your lips have no sweat glands and so they are technically incapable of creating their own moisture. Just hydrating your skin is not enough, as you'll need to slough off the dead skin cells to reveal the pink and smoother skin underneath.

How It Works
Honey is a natural humectant that works great in humid weather. Apply a thin coat, every night before going to sleep. In the morning, scrub the skin clean with a towel or brush. Follow this skin care tip for Delhi weather every day for best results!
