Bet you’ve already heard that you need to switch up your skincare routine as you transition from one season to the next. So, while your skin needs a heavy-duty moisturiser in winter, a lighter one would do just fine during the hot summer months. But wait! There are some skincare staples in your kitty that are worth holding on to (read: essential) all year long. They are—you guessed right—the must-haves your skin needs in order to stay healthy and happy all year long.  

Not sure what we mean? Take a sneak peek at our beauty kit to find the 5 products we stock up on, no matter what the season is. Add them to cart, if you haven’t already.

If you thought you needed sunscreen only during summer, think again. UVB rays, though weaker, can still harm your skin in winter and during the monsoon. Carry the Pond’s Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 30 with you for all-day protection and a non-greasy feel.

Your skin is attacked by pollutants, dirt and dust every day, eventually making it look dull and lifeless. Deep cleanse your skin and get rid of impurities by washing your face twice a day with a mild face wash such as Pond’s White Beauty Spotless Fairness Face Wash. It has Pro-Vitamin B3 that helps unlock a bright and spotless complexion.

Aloe vera gel is the new skincare hero that you absolutely need to add to your beauty shelf. Get your hands on Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel if you’re looking to keep oil and skin irritation at bay. It also works on hydrating your skin and helping it retain that glow. City girls, you want to make this your go-to.

A hydrating lip balm

Can you ever live without lip balm? We know we can’t. Chapped lips are annoying and unsightly, and extreme weather only makes your lips drier. So, keep a hydrating lip balm close at all times. We swear by the Lakmé Lip Love Chapstick – Strawberry. (Psst… it has SPF 15 too.) 

An anti-ageing solution
