Kolkata Hair and Beauty Expert Kakoli Sengupta shares Summer Beauty Secrets with the Sholoana Fashion Readers….

Sholoana Fashion: How should we protect our hair from the excess moisture?

Kakoli Sengupta: The more water vapor there is in the air, the more humid it will be. Excessive humidity is uncomfortable and takes a toll on hair. Humid weather causes strands to absorb more moisture and can actually change the length and look of your hair.

One way to tame the effects of humidity or moisture, and the frizz that often comes with it, is to rinse your hair with cold water instead of warm in order to seal the cuticle. It will then lay flat instead of flying upward and out of control.


Sholoana Fashion: How to prevent the hair from stinking due to the excessive moisture lock in this season?

Kakoli Sengupta: Cleansing your hair and scalp everyday is important as we perspire more during the monsoon. If your work involves being outdoors for long periods of time; put on a hat.


Sholoana Fashion: The oily skin gets worse at this time of the year, what should people with such skin type do?

Kakoli Sengupta: The skin tends to get oilier and eventually leads to breakouts.
If you have oily skin, make sure to use a light-weight moisturiser after bath. Scrub your face twice in a week to remove dirt and grime. Before stepping out in the sun, apply water or a gel-based sunscreen with an SPF 30, to avoid tanning. Use a floral toner before bedtime to keep your skin hydrated. Opt for light-weight and water-proof make-up during this time.


Sholoana Fashion: How often should one go for a facial in this dry summer season?

Kakoli Sengupta:  During monsoon the humidity is very high so the evaporation from the face is very less that is why it is advisable to keep the face scrupulously clean and weekly clean ups and facial treatment twice a month is advisable  for teens clean up are more than sufficient.

Dry skin: Keeping the skin hydrated all the time is very important. Cleansing is important during the monsoons. The high humidity causes sweat, build-up dirt, and dust along with other toxins on the surface of skinskin. Keeps skin nourished. Loss of moisture from skin makes it appear dry and lifeless. Use a good moisturizer at least 2 to 3 times a day.

You could also use a gentle scrub (with uniform mild beads) once a day

· Use a light lotion-based moisturizer or serum which will gently rehydrate your skin and also brighten it up
