5 summer skincare essentials to keep in your bag

Your skin requires extra care to combat the scorching heat in summer. Here are five skincare essentials you must carry outdoors to keep your skin protected and healthy. 


Staying hydrated is essential in summer. To avoid dehydration, carry a water bottle with you at all times when stepping outdoors. 


Sunscreen is an essential summer skincare item. It helps protect against the sun's harmful UV rays. You should reapply it every few hours.

Face mist

Facial mists are excellent to keep your skin refreshed and hydrated. It also helps reduce sebum production and keeps your skin cool.

Petroleum jelly

Hydration for your lips is equally essential in summer. Apply petroleum jelly or a lip balm every few hours to keep them moisturised and hydrated. 

Aloe vera gel

Summer's hot weather can cause sunburn or other skin issues. Aloe vera gel helps soothe the skin and provides relief from skin problems. It is also great to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised.
