Raindrops, the refreshing fragrance of wet soil and those delish pakoras, monsoon is a season to celebrate. However, such romance is always accompanied by humidity making our skin and hair feel dull. Phew! All good things come with certain dampeners, don’t they?
Hair becomes frizzy and on top of it, moisture causes dandruff to rear its ugly head. Not to forget our friends with oily skin, monsoon can be a nightmare for them. Such weather conditions can lead to the accumulation of bacteria and fungus leading to skin allergies, redness and itchiness.
Well, what is the solution then? Rosewater!
Yes, rosewater has numerous benefits and is not only recommended to use during summer but monsoon as well. When sprayed on your face, it helps remove stickiness and can also help prevent skin irritations and acne (which appears frequently during monsoon due to bacteria). Rose water helps in providing shine and bounce to the hair.
