Eat healthy

The best way to crave for sugary foods and keep acidity at bay? A banana! It contains calcium, potassium, protein and Vitamin C which ensures healthy skin and less hunger pangs. During the course of the day make a point to carry a handful of nuts and munch on them between shows.  Most importantly, drink lots of water and eat lunch and dinner on time to keep up your energy.

Pack your bag neat

Do not clutter your bag with way too many items. Your phone, not more than 4 items of makeup, a napkin and a pack of band-aids should be kept handy. Avoid bags that are way too small or too big. Choose a chic one with compartments that fits in all your essentials and makes your life easier.

Dress strategically

The weather is always a problem for August shows; sometimes it’s raining and sometimes it’s too hot. Plan your outfits keeping in mind the weather by going for lightweight fabrics and cool colours. You might want to add light layers, like an ankle-length cardigan over a pair of hot shorts and avoid anything heavy for optimum style and comfort.

Fuss free and fabulous

Make sure you look your fabulous best by going for minimal hair and makeup. A layer of foundation or CC cream is just enough and nothing looks as chic as a top knot or open hair. Remember, simple things work the best when you are supposed to look both comfy and stylish.
