Summer is the perfect time to say YOLO, pack a bag and head to the open road without a care in the world. No plans, no agendas, no regrets—just bunch of friends making fantastic summer memories. The only regret you may come back with is if you don’t pack your essentials—enough underwear, music for the car, sunglasses and of course all your essential skin care products. With dusty roads and the scorching sun as your constant companions, keeping your skin healthy may not be top priority, but it certainly should. I mean, you do want to look stunning in those group-fies, don’t you! Just make sure you keep these skin care staples in your bag.
 

Protect your body

Protect your body

The first step to getting glowing skin is a robust skin care routine that starts with protection. With the sun unwaveringly shining down throughout your road trip, you’ll need a whole lot of it. Carry with you the Lakmé Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++. Its broad spectrum formula with SPF 50 and PA+++ will provide a barrier against both UVA and UVB rays and fight skin darkening and damage so that you can camp out under the sun without fear.

Another road trip essential for both men and women is moisturiser. We’d take the travel-friendly Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser in Cocoa Radiant with us. It’s enriched with micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly and just a spritz of this is good enough to moisture your skin.

Even if you don’t get a chance to wash your hands, you’ve got to keep a hand sanitizer like the Lifebuoy Active Fresh handy. It’s got moisturisers and Vitamin E and smells pretty, darn good too!

 

Care for your face

Care for your face

Turn heads on your trip by going a step further than your skincare routine. Any outing with selfies requires basic makeup so if you have a photo-worthy day ahead, prep your face with the Lakmé CC Face Cream that gives you max coverage, brightens your skin and moisturises it too! Plus, it's got SPF 30 which means it’s great even if you're spending time outside the car.

Let the Lakmé Lip Love Care for your lips with its dual core benefits—moisturising them, protecting them and giving them a hint of colour. Now that’s what you call a hardworking beauty product!

And of course, it goes without saying, any trip in summer requires deo. Our personal fave is the Dove Original Whitening Deodorant which has 1/4th moisturising cream that keeps underarms smooth and 48 hours of antiperspirant protection which is basically, the only thing you need when you’re jam packed in a car for 12 hours straight.

 

Cleanse well

Cleanse well

When you reach your destination, don’t get so excited that you forget your usual skincare routine.

Rely on the Pond’s White Beauty Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash that’s got Activated Charcoal which goes deep enough to get rid off all the grime your skin might have collected while you had the windows rolled down.

And before going to bed, no matter how tired you are, give your skin a dose of the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Night Crème. It’s got micro-crystals and skin lightening vitamins which work overtime to polish and brighten your skin so that you wake up looking like you’ve got a whole 12 hours of sleep.
