The rainy season is here, and while you may be enjoying the pleasant weather, you should be aware of how harsh the monsoon can be on your skin and hair. In fact, this weather may potentially make existing dermal conditions worse. Acne breakouts are more likely to occur because of this! That’s why having a monsoon skincare and hair care routine is crucial.
Not to worry! It’s not necessary to develop a separate beauty routine. A little mixing up is all you need. According to an expert, using a natural face pack to combat monsoon-related issues can maintain the health of your skin and hair. So, the two ingredients that can do this job for you are buttermilk and oats.
Ingredients you will need
1 ½ tablespoon oatmeal
2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon honey
A few drops of rose water
Regular use of buttermilk and oatmeal face masks may prevent dry skin, keeping your skin supple and moisturized.
Ingredients you’ll need
Half a cup of oatmeal
Half a cup of buttermilk
1 tablespoon olive oil or almond oil
1 tablespoon honey
For best results, use this mask twice a week, especially during the monsoon season. Due to the fact that oats and buttermilk can effectively moisturize your hair, calm an itchy scalp, and help preserve its length.
Health Shots spoke to Dr Ekta Nigam, Consultant-Dermatologist, Paras Hospitals, Gurugram, about the benefits of buttermilk and oats mask for skin and hair.
Phenols, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substances found in oatmeal, can absorb UV radiation and lessen skin damage from the sun. Additionally, it also aids in skin lightening. Dr Nigam says, “When buttermilk is added to the oatmeal face mask, it becomes an extremely exfoliating, hydrating, and soothing face mask. Together, they help the skin become lighter, tighter, and more radiant.” By using this oatmeal face mask, you can prevent photo damage and achieve an even skin tone.
According to Dr Nigam, people with greasy or itchy scalps, dandruff, or both respond best to the oatmeal and buttermilk hair mask. These substances work well together to fully moisturise your hair, improve the texture of your hair noticeably, and are especially good for dry and damaged hair. It can make your hair look smoother and more radiant when applied as a hair mask.
