Are you going to be a monsoon bride? After all, the sound, smell, feel and whole vibe of rain really gets the romantic juices flowing doesn’t it? But we all know that the monsoon season is not the best for your skin. Although every season has its pros and cons and lists of dos and don’ts for the bride-to-be, the monsoons are a particularly tough season to deal with. Be it your skin or makeup if you don’t have things pre-planned and organized, there is a high chance that you will be a hot mess on your big day. Luckily, with Beauty Hooked around, let us save your romance-and your skin- at the same time! Here are some tried and tested beauty essentials that you need to own to make you a perfect monsoon bride.
Oh and do remember, these skincare must haves should be implemented about 2 months before your big day so that your skin glows on your wedding day.
1. Oil Control Face Wash
Monsoon can be pretty harsh when it comes to your pores. In the monsoon season the skin has a natural tendency to develop clogged pores and oily skin, which means acne! Top that off with makeup and wedding stress and you are in for a disaster. In order to control acne during this season we recommend you switch to an oil control facewash, and wash your face 2 times a day.

In the monsoon season the eye area tends to get dehydrated and look tired and wrinkled. Eye creams are essential as they help reduce eye wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.

3. Hands and Foot Care
In the monsoons hands and feet tend to become dry and patchy. Flakiness also occurs. On your wedding day when you have those rings to flaunt, you do not want dry looking and feeling hands.

In the monsoon season the Sun’s UV rays is extra harsh on your skin, and skin is extra prone to hyper pigmentation, sunburns, fine lines & aging. Be it a rainy day or a sunny day, you need sunscreen at all times. We would recommend a sunscreen with high SPF that would save your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays. Also apply sunscreen 30 mins before stepping out of your house on any area exposed to the sun, be it your face, hands & feet. Applying sunscreen on your feet may sound weird , but here’s the reality, the monsoon sun could tan your feet and you wouldn’t like your feet to have different toned skin from other parts of your body right? So apply sunscreen.
So thats all girls, the 4 basics for the perfect Monsoon Wedding. What would you recommend as a monsoon beauty essential? Comment below.
