Dermatologist Nivedita Dadu, Founder, Chairman from Dr. Nivedita Dadu's Dermatology Clinic, said: "No matter which season, you ought to drink loads of water. Drinking water throughout the day will keep your body feeling healthy, and your skin looking fresh. Also, try consuming fruits and vegetables with high-water content.

Sunscreen: If you think that you don't need sunscreen in monsoon, you are wrong. Even on rainy days, you need to be protected from harmful UV rays.

Your hair tends to become frizzy in monsoon. It's important to wash your hair at least thrice a week and to use a conditioner as it moisturizes your locks and minimizes frizz. Using a hair mask once or twice a week can also help to keep your hair smooth and healthy.

Oil massage is a great option any time. To reinvigorate and moisturize your dry scalp, oil massage is a must. But also, do not use the oil much otherwise you will end up doing over shampooing which will damage your hair.

The gloomy and humid weather conditions in monsoon can be a tad uncomfortable for expectant mothers. Be extra cautious with your diet and lifestyle as the risk of infections can be high in this weather, says Anubha Singh, Gynaecologist and IVF Expert from Shantah IVF Centre.
  • Wear very comfortable and light clothes which can easily suck your sweat. Do wear comfortable flat slippers or shoes whichever you prefer.
