Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend. Summer is here and it is scotching hot. Sweat and soaring temperature takes a toll on our skin. It is very important to practice a summer skincare routine according to your skin’s needs. I thought it is the right time to share my summer skincare favorites and the makeup products that I like to use during summer.
1. Clean & Clear Face Wash
My skin gets oilier during summers and the Clean & Clear face wash absorbs the excess oil and makes my skin non – greasy. The best thing about this face wash is that, it doesn’t make my skin patchy.
This face wash is a boon to oily skinned beauties. I use it as my morning face wash when my face is the oiliest. This face wash keeps excess oil at bay for about 5 to 6 hours. It has also made my skin soft and supple.
This is a magical product which works as a cleanser, scrub and also a mask. I love to use it as a scrub as the charcoal present in it acts as a magnet and removes blackheads and other impurities.
4. Lotus Matte Gel Sunscreen
Sunscreens are a must everyday especially during summer. The Lotus matte gel sunscreen feels light on the skin and has a cooling effect. Though I sweat a lot, it stays on my skin for the whole day.
5. Pond’s BB Cream
The Pond’s BB cream is light weight and gives a natural finish to my skin without making it look cakey. This is one of the few BB creams that match my skin tone perfectly. An added advantage is that, it has SPF which is great.
6. Lakme White Intense Compact Powder
Compact powders are a must during summers as they keep the makeup on place and also avoid excessive sweating. Lakme white intense compact powder makes my skin look fresh and non oily.
7. Plum Kajal
I avoid using liquid eyeliners in summer as sweating can ruin the eye makeup. Plum kajal is water proof and survives the whole day until it is removed with a makeup remover. I use it as an eyeliner and as a kajal.
This lipstick shade is one of my favorites as it is summer appropriate and also is highly pigmented. It moisturizes the lips and avoids chapping. It lasts for quite a long time and fades slightly after meals, leaving a beautiful tint.
At the end of a hot and tiring day, Innisfree sheet masks help in pampering and refreshing my skin. It gives a cooling effect and relaxes my body and mind. This 15 minutes ritual leaves my skin fresh, healthy and rejuvenated.
10. Natural Bath & Body Mist
A body mist is a must for me as I sweat like a pig (literally). I received Natural Bath & Body mist in my April GlamEgo box and I love it. It has a fresh smell that isn’t strong but sweet. It doesn’t irritate my super sensitive nose and lingers for about 4 to 5 hours.
