Don’t ever skimp on moisturiser, which is very common mistake that people make. When selecting an appropriate one for the season, ensure that it is water based and light on your skin. Ingredients like spring water are perfect to soothe the skin effectively. That’s why the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss range is ideal for summer. It consists of 4 products – a gel crème, a facial foam, a serum and an overnight mask. As they are enriched with Mineral laden glacial water, the range is ideal to hydrate the skin without leaving it sticky. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum this summer. Its gel texture gets easily absorbed into the skin while the mineral laden glacial water within it moisturises with ease.
