Summer brings with it sweltering heat and humidity, which are the top causes of dullness and breakouts. Just like your body, your skin too requires some cooling skincare products that will calm your skin down and prevent the harsh heat from playing its pranks. Read on as we give you a list of products that will keep you calm, cool and collected all through summer...

Aloe gel
 

Aloe gel

Aloe vera offers a wide range of skin and hair benefits and is particularly beneficial during summer due to its cooling and soothing properties. Working with aloe vera plant can be quite messy therefore we recommend using the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel, it hydrates and plumps dry and tired skin to make it look fresh and awake within minutes.

Face mist
 

Face mist

While you may feel the need to wash your face constantly we suggest you avoid it as this will make your skin look oilier. Instead spray a face mist at regular intervals to hydrate your skin and calm it down, especially after stepping out in the sun. Carry the mist in your hand bag and give your face a quick spritz to freshen up.

Antiperspirant deodorant
 

Antiperspirant deodorant

Sweat patches and body odour are common during summer but they are also embarrassing. Using an antiperspirant deodorant such as the Dove Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant Soft Feel will not only reduce perspiration but will also keep you fresh all day long. Free from alcohol, this deodorant is gentle and works well for all skin types including sensitive skin.

Cucumber slices
 

Cucumber slices

Cucumber is a summer favourite of most people due to its high water content. Summer can make your eyes look tired and dull, placing two slices of cucumber on closed eyes and relaxing for a few minutes can make them look fresh and awake instantly.
