5 skincare must-haves for the hot weather

In a hot and humid city like Mumbai, taking extra care of your skin and making some crucial changes to your make-up kit is of paramount importance. And we are not just talking about the mandatory usage of sunscreen and drinking coconut water here; summer demands a holistic approach towards your lifestyle. Listed below are a few must-haves that should be in your bag and dressing tables. Read on!


Undoubtedly, the most important part of our skincare regime is the sunscreen. Get a sunblock with an SPF of 30 to 50 and apply it 20 minutes before you step out of your house. And, keep reapplying it every two hours even when you are indoors.


Your plush lip balm may gave you a nice tinted look and even moisturise your lips well, but on a harsh Mumbai afternoon, that balm won’t protect them unless you are wearing a SPF-based lip balm.


Not just opting for salon-based anti-tanning treatments (both organic and chemical ones), but in order to get a completely tan-free skin, one must invest in good antitanning creams and face packs.


Pollution, scorching heat, sweaty scalp… Mumbai’s summer has never been a friend of your hair. Other than shampooing your mane four times a week to keep dirt and dryness at bay, you also need to get protective hair masks to give your hair that extra shine and restore its moisture. Apply every alternate day!


Okay, here is the truth — scrubs or exfoliators are not just for your pretty face but they are also meant for your body. Since its summer time, your body is bound to get all sweaty and you would feel greasy all day long. In such harsh weather conditions, body scrubs come to the rescue and clean out all the dirt and sweat off your skin. Remember, overuse of scrubs would lead to dryness and your body could lose its moisture. Use scrubs or exfoliators twice or thrice a week.
