I moved to Bangalore in 2010 as a design intern. Two reasons- good career opportunities and perfect weather. Okay. Perfect weather and good career opportunities. All in all, Bangalore has been a better host than any other city I have lived in. And also to my skin.
The only issues I have had with my skin is when I travel, leaving this addictive weather behind. However, these days, given Bangalore’s mood swings and the glamorous days when I literally live beneath makeup, things aren’t the same! It’s hard to catch up on a healthy skin regime with the growing pollution and impromptu fluctuations in temperature. The morning work-outfit seems inappropriate for 5 PM chai break. Thank god for layering though!
Remember the Skin-O-Meter quiz I was talking about in the last post? Well, there’s more to it. My Skin My City tells you how healthy your skin is and suggests a few remedies based on your location. Besides giving you a score, it rates cities collectively on the basis of the user scores. So, you could know if you have the best skin in town, eh! For instance, while the average score in Bangalore is a 7 on the Skin-O-Meter, my habit of moisturising multiple times and drinking a lot of water got me an 8.
As weather changes, so should the regime. As location changes, so should the regime. And this change is constant. So, go ahead and check your skin score in the city!
