Summers in India are hot and humid and the last thing you want is to apply a thick body lotion that leaves the skin feeling sticky or greasy. Having said that, your skin will still need to be moisturised because when it comes to skincare, habits like applying sunscreen, moisturiser and body lotions are not season-specific. Come rain or shine, you have to continue using these products all year long for healthy and glowing skin.
If you’re looking for the perfect moisturiser for summer, one that will absorb quickly and won’t feel greasy or sticky post-application, look no further. We’ve rounded up the best moisturisers for summers in India. Not only are they super lightweight, but they’re pretty budget-friendly too. So go ahead and add to cart RN.
