What Rain Water Does To Your Skin?


“Beauty Expert” Donna Fay Graziano explains: What Rain Water Does To Your Skin?

Donna Fay often reflects,”dancing in the rain is a childish fantasy that we all cherish!” However, as we grow older the freedom of doing so reduces. We are constantly worried about our hair getting wet and our clothes getting spoiled, drenched, and ruined. The biggest fear that most people have is of damaging their skin in the rain. It is not very clear whether or not rain water is actually good or bad for your skin. Yet, it is a topical subject for any pristine, trained, beauty professional to explore. Different “Beauty Experts” such as Donna Fay Graziano, have different opinions on the matter at hand. Here are some of the insights on whether or not your skin benefits from rain water.

Toxic Rain

First what you must consider before you judge the possible benefits of rain on your skin is your location on the globe. If you are in the country side where there are no motor vehicles or on a vacation on the Swiss Alps, then rain water is probably great for your skin! It is the purest form of water. However, if you are anywhere near a big city, you will get only toxic rain water diluted with the pollutants of the atmosphere.

Soft Water

If you get into the nature of the water that comes with the rains then you would have to say it is good for your skin. Rain water is the purest form of soft water, that is, water that is not alkaline. In that case, boiling the water from the rains and then bathing in it might be good for your skin. Soft water is becoming increasingly rare these days, so in that respect your skin does benefit from rains.

The Emotional Value Of Rain

Many people love walking in the rain on a hot summer night. People may not attribute this to be really good for their skin but emotionally it is fun!! Individuals receive a mental stimulation from walking in the rain. It triggers endorphins which provide happy memories. Rain water for your skin may not be chemically great, but emotionally, it is amazing. Feeling the water droplets crash against your face has its own emotional value. Getting drenched in the rain water makes us happy and happy people have good skin. So if you love the rains and would like to get wet in it, do not hold back thinking about the chemical composition of the rain.

Things To Remember

1. The first monsoon skin care tip is to avoid the first rains. Usually the first few showers wash away the pollution of the atmosphere. So if it has been raining consistently for a week, it is safe to get wet and dirty.

2. Even if the rains damage skin cells, there is way to protect it. Always go out in the rains after applying a water-proof lotion. Products like Umbrella Dizzle a BB Cream with  WPF (Water Protection Factor)  will insulate the skin against the chemicals in the rain. Use these monsoon skin care tips to keep your skin rain-safe.

So go on and enjoy that rain dance!
