How can different types of skin types combat humidity in the monsoon? 

To combat humidity on oily skin during the monsoon, one must wash the face as frequently as possible and cold compression should be applied with iced water at least twice a day. Thereafter use an oil-free sun block.


Persons with dry skin should increase their water intake so that the skin remains properly hydrated.  Sitting in air conditioning results in further drying of our skin, so try stepping out of the AC environment every 2 hours for 10-15 minutes. Good quality moisturizing creams should be applied twice a day over face and other exposed areas. Since dryness is one of the causes behind premature wrinkles, cream based face packs should be applied twice a week.


In Indian conditions, mostly the T-zone remains oily and the C-zone remains dry in combination skin. Treatment, therefore, depends on the affected area.
