Caring for your skin becomes all the more important in summer, especially when you stay in a country like India where humidity combined with heat takes a toll on your skin and invites a lot of skin woes.

Trying to protect your skin with sunscreen, scarf or an umbrella while dripping in sweat is common during summers. But is that protection enough? We think not. You need a lot more skincare essential to get through summer without ruining your skin. Wondering what these are, scroll down to see:

 

Facial mist

The harsh rays of the sun combined with constant sweating leaves your skin feeling parched and dull. An easy way to instantly re-energise, refresh and hydrate the skin is by using a face mist with hydrating ingredients. The Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist contains the goodness of hydrating hyaluronic acid and calming white tea to keep skin soft and healthy all summer long.

 

SPF infused lip balm

Have you noticed that your lips often get dry in summer too? That’s because the harsh rays of the sun easily damage and rob moisture off the thin and delicate lip skin. Most people forget their lips while applying sunscreen in the morning. To ensure your lips stay nourished and protected, use an SPF infused lip balm such as the Lakme Lip Love Chapstick. It has SPF 15 that helps protect your lips from the harmful rays of the sun.

 

Compact with SPF

Reapplying sunscreen on a face full of makeup can ruin it. However, you can always use a compact infused with SPF such as the Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact to blot away the shine and also protect your skin from the sun. Win-win!

 

BB cream

Replace your heavy-duty foundation with BB creams in summer to prevent makeup meltdown. BB creams such as the Ponds White Beauty BB+ Cream act as a light-weight foundation that conceals spots, correct uneven skin tone and brighten skin. Infused with SPF, it offers you the benefits of three products in one.

 

Blotting sheets

Last but not the least, those with oily skin experience a lot more greasiness. Washing your face constantly won’t help. Therefore, carry some blotting sheets in your bag to remove blot away excess oil from your face.
