Monsoon brings with it, a lot of skin problems. Tanning, oiliness in skin, and acne problems are on the rise during the rainy season.

To cure your acne, use face washes or soaps containing Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicyclic Acid. This helps in decreasing the sebum production and removes dead cells from the skin. Usage of Fuller's Earth face pack (Multani Mitti) is recommended by many skin experts. Any kinds of cosmetics or creams having oily consistency should be avoided! In case of serious acne problems, doctors recommend tropical antibiotics to be applied on skin.

If your skin gets greasy and oily, then you can try a home-made face pack. Take some multani mitti and mix it with a table-spoon of pulp of orange or cucumber. Apply this pack on your face and keep it for 20 minutes, after that rinse it with cold water.

To prevent tanning, use sunscreens of SPF 40 or even more. Vitamin A is known as oral sunscreen. Also intake of fruits and vegetables rich in caroteniods will be of much help. You can also prepare a face pack at home and apply it twice in a week. Cucumber juice, lemon juice and potato juice is to be mixed with Multani Mitti, and apply it on your face, neck and hands. After 20 minutes wash it off!
