How are you all doing? Enjoying the heavy downpour? Being a Delhiite, I never felt that I could ever feel the plight of the Mumbaikars and how they struggle during monsoons. Today, was one such day when I realized how difficult it is for the people out there who get stuck in rains and must deal with all the problems that come with it. Now you must be thinking what made me say so? Today, I could not step foot into my parking because it was already flooded to my knee. Not a single Ola or Uber driver showed up. And I could just see people flocking back to the society and rushing back to their homes. That’s how bad it was. Luckily for me, I was at my home, but I still feel so bad for the people who struggled through this heavy downpour to reach their homes and offices. Sigh!
For some folks, while this rain brought too many troubles, some enjoyed it, especially the kids. They laughed, played and danced in the rains. Indeed, a treat to my eyes. I kinda have this love and hate relationship with monsoons for so long and being stuck at home is not the sole reason. I get sick of the rising humidity and the damage that it does to my skin. Too much humidity makes my facial skin so oily that it gets a breeding ground for pimples, rashes, acne and what not. One thing that I completely despise is flaunting a pimple throughout my day. The worst part is that the rains may go away but these after effects keep on lingering for a long time. To be very very very honest, I plead guilty to hating pimples. For me, a pimple is a confidence crusher and I could not just get a good head start to my day until I have a clear, non-oily face. This fear got me so smitten that I literally searched the whole internet about DIY remedies to keep my face oil free. I did try many of them and some of them really worked. But at the end of the day, these remedies were not very travel-friendly. The search for the perfect solution continued until Himalaya launched its Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Washes.
If you are an Indian kid, I am sure that Himalaya does not need an introduction. Since our childhood, I have been using so many products from Himalaya and I am sure all of you are well acquainted with this brand. For the ones, who have not heard of Himalaya, then here is a quick brand overview.
