- A rose-tinted balm
- A high-performance sunscreen
- Cleansing wipes
- A radiance-inducing serum
- An alcohol-free roll-on
A rose-tinted balm
Invest in a moisturising balm to keep your lips soft and supple during the summer. The Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin - Rosy Lips is our favourite. It hydrates the lips, soothes discomfort triggered by dryness, and forms a barrier over the surface of the lips to prevent external aggressors like the weather, wind, and pollution from causing damage. It also leaves behind a rose-tinted sheen and is non-sticky. Perfect for summers!
A high-performance sunscreen
You cannot skip out on sunscreen! Exposure to the sun can damage your skin, and cause pigmentation and premature ageing of the face. If you’re stepping out, don’t forget to protect your skin with a layer of sunscreen. The Lakmé Sun Expert Spf 50 Pa+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen is a high-performance formula that blocks 97% of harmful UVB rays, and feels ultra-lightweight on the skin.
If you plan on travelling more often in the coming months, you must find a way to cleanse your face every now and then. Think of all the dirt, grime, and oils that accumulate on your skin throughout the day. To counter this issue, keep cleansing wipes handy at all times. The Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes are enriched with vitamin B, vitamin E, and triple purified water, and they’re free of 2000+ chemicals that are known to sabotage your skin. Toss this in your handbag when you’re out and about to keep your face squeaky clean.
A radiance-inducing serum
The Pond’s Gold Beauty Serum (yeah—the name is pretty self-explanatory, no?) lends your skin a gold-like glow, and brightens your face instantly. Formulated with argan oil and vitamin E, the serum works toward moisturising your face, reducing dullness, and giving you that bright, glowing skin you've been craving.
An alcohol-free roll-on
Okay, looking fresh is one thing. But smelling good? That's why we're wrapping up with the Dove Even Tone Deodorant. Infused with moisturising cream, this one doesn't just smell pleasant, it reduces underarm darkness and is free of baddies like alcohol. And since when we're all wearing tank tops and sleeveless shirts this summer, this one is a must-have.
