Skin gets affected by UV radiations even in a cloudy weather, so use of sunscreen in monsoon is a must. Choose a broad spectrum water resistant physical sunscreen for Monsoon as UV rays can penetrate the clouds well.
Repeat sunscreen every 3-4 hours in day time, and it doesnt need washing your face between sunscreen applications.

Dont keep you face wet for long if you run into the rain. Tap it dry and apply moisturizer on that.

Makesure you wash the makeup with micellar water in night before going to sleep. Always use a moisturzer and a sunscreen before applying your makeup.
