HYDERABAD: Rains provide relief from the heat, but they can also bring a host of problems. Luckily, the shower of paraben-free beauty solutions helps take the worry out of skincare and makeup during the monsoons. Doctors tell the EC that parabens are not the safest ingredients to use in beauty products and therefore warn against using them in rainy and even sunny weather.

Dr. Syed Shazia Fatima, a renowned aesthetic doctor in the city, explains: “What happens during the monsoon is that the pH balance of the skin is disturbed and the rainy season is the only time when I personally recommend that if someone wants to use a toner, can use one. Otherwise, it is not a necessity. At this time, you end up having dry or oily patches on your skin. Your skin tends to break out, and skin allergies and irritations appear.

In such a scenario, parabens, which are chemical preservatives, which in some cases are beneficial (as they prevent any bacteria or fungus growth in your skin care products), ideally this is not recommended for skin care, because skin care has exceeded three and some cases, moisturizers should not be used beyond six months. That said, because your skin is acting up, you don’t want to do anything that will irritate it further or cause problems, so stay away from parabens as much as you consciously can,” she shares.

Dr. Keerthana Kalva, chief cosmetic dermatologist at Inform Clinic, Jubilee Hills, says it’s always good to use makeup products that are fragrance and paraben free, as they are only suitable for younger skin. “Try to avoid oily and heavy makeup during the monsoon because due to the humidity the skin becomes very oily and when heavy oil-based makeup is used it clogs the pores and causes aggravation of acne and gives rise to comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Lighter makeup, liquid-based makeup is much more suitable this season,” she shares.

For some makeup tips, Aashka Goradia Goble, co-founder of Renee Cosmetics, suggests opting for a pre-makeup primer or oil to get that smooth base, to make sure the makeup sets in nicely. “A pre-makeup oil will prep your skin for smooth base makeup and minimize the appearance of fine lines and maintain your sense of conscious product use while keeping you looking flawless all day.

You can even choose an all-in-one BB cream that’s not only cruelty-free and paraben-free, but also contains SPF-30, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid and provides medium coverage to boot. , correct, hydrate and give you that glowing, beautiful skin you always yearn for! The moisturizing quality of the BB cream will prevent your skin from drying out and balance out oiliness from moisture. Slip on a waterproof and smudge-proof liquid eyeliner or kajal, depending on your style and rest assured that it won’t smear even if you get drenched in the rain.

Using lightweight, tinted, paraben-free lip balms helps add a touch of glamor with that ‘natural no-makeup appeal’ in the dull grays of the monsoons,” she shares, adding that after a long day of rushing through endless deadlines and running errands, don’t forget to remove your makeup: “You can choose between a paraben-free cleansing balm or cleansing wipes to refresh the skin instantly. This will help you remove dirt and grime as well than makeup, giving your skin the ultimate respite after a tiring day.
