Embrace a cooling potion for your skin

The hot weather can make your skin rather dry and parched. This is when you need your skin to cool down by way of a cream that lends your skin optimum hydration. Do this by relying on the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. This one feels absolutely cool on your skin as well as keeps your skin hydrated all day. Giving your skin the nourishment and sheen it deserves, this gel crème contains a light glaze with mineral laden glacial water to keep your skin moisturised.

If your face feels parched after a day out in the sun, a face mist is all you need. This is like the perfect pick-me-up for your face when you’re feeling tired. Our suggestion is to cool the spray in the fridge and then apply it on your face once you’ve returned home from an outing. All you need to do is mix equal amounts of coconut water and aloe vera juice. Follow this up by adding 1 tsp almond oil to the mix and then refrigerate.
