For some, summer means hitting the pool, burying yourself in a book and for others it is purely a season where you must learn to beat the heat. Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt says that one can enjoy the changing weather by planning a trip with your gang, keeping yourself hydrated and staying fit.
Here is Alia Bhatt’s list of summer essentials that she swears by:
Sunglasses: This is absolutely the first thing everyone must reach out to when you step out in the sun. Not only does it add a hint of glam to your summer outfit, but is also very important to protect your eyes from the sunrays.
Plan a trip to get away from the heat: Gather your girl gang and plan a quick getaway on the long weekends to the hills. A quick three-day trip will help you stay cool and come back to the city rejuvenated.
Stay fit: The heat can completely wear you down and hence funking up your fitness routine is important. Heading out for a run in the heat really doesn’t appeal to anyone. Hit the pool for some aqua-exercise, aqua Zumba or simply swim. These exercises are great for toning and are easy on the joints, all the while staying cool.
Keep yourself hydrated: While no one stops their daily routine just for summer, you need to keep yourself hydrated all the time as the mercury rises. Make drinking water more fun with vitamin water, infused water, lemon water, iced tea if you are not a big fan otherwise. This will keep breakouts at bay.
Summer wardrobe: Beat the heat smartly. And you can do that only when you’re smartly dressed. Swear by light weight muslin, linen outfits that will keep you fresh and cool through the day.
Spend the day in: When you are fed up of the heat and want to run far, far away but you can’t because of all the things tying you down, you can simply resort to staying indoors. We all deserve a day in. Rent a villa, or even your house will do. Invite your friends home for a weekend of movies, breezy cocktails, a light fresh salad, and of course no party would be complete without dessert. After all a little indulgence hurt no one.
