Cuddle weather is here! Doesn't that excite you? That means more, well, cuddling and stuff!

However, it comes with its own set of pitfalls. Due to polluted rainwater, acid rain, and increased humidity levels, infections become more common. Your skin may also turn oily or dry and even become prone to acne breakouts. Likewise, you're more prone to suffering from dandruff, hair fall, and a smelly scalp.

Don't worry, though, because you can manage to keep all these problems at bay if you follow the quick remedies below!


1)   ATHLETE'S FOOT

Getting your feet wet during rainy season is unavoidable. But let us remind you that bacterial or fungal infection erupts when feet are wet for hours. Your feet will feel super itchy and smell awful.

Solution: Don't wear shoes if you'll walk through dirty flood water. Make sure you always have your flip flops with you as they let your feet breathe. And as soon as you get home, wash them thoroughly with soap and water.

2)   RINGWORM INFECTIONS

This skin infection is caused by fungi called dermatophytes. It may appear as round, red patches on the skin that grow outward as the infection spreads. This develops when you perspire in the rain because the sweat doesn't evaporate easily and its presence causes the growth of these fungi. Sometimes, wearing wet clothes alone can lead to dermatophytes.

Solution: The easiest way to avoid developing ringworm is to bring an umbrella or extra tee with you all the time. And wipe yourself dry before you change shirts. Or better yet, take a bath first.

4)   OILY SKIN

Rainy season makes your sebaceous glands hyperactive. Oil secretion and sweat collects dirt and bacteria on your body, which in turn causes blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.

Solution: Wash your face with lukewarm water. Make the water too hot or too cold and you'll dry out your face. If this doesn't work for you, watch this video below for more ways to banish oily skin:

5)   DRY SKIN

Rainy season has a de-moisturizing effect on the skin that's why it feels dry during this time of the year. Don't ignore this, because if you do, your skin might get flaky and itchy.

Solution: There are many skin moisturizers available in the market. However, most of them are a bit pricey, and aren't actually included in a man's grocery lists. If it's out of the budget, maybe this video could help!

6)   DANDRUFF

The extreme change in weather and lack of humidity makes the scalp dry, which is synonymous with dandruff.

Solution: Avoid using hair styling products such as gel and wax. Due to excess humidity, these chemical-based products can cause even more dandruff and oiliness.
