A quick Summet tip for our readers: stay always hydrated and it will give you glow like a light bulb.
Skin type : Combination (T zone oily)
Favorite Face wash: Neutrogena deep clean facial cleanser
Favourite body wash :The body shop strawberry shower gel
Skin Care Products you use in Summer : I prefer to keep my skin with minimum products on in the day time as it can get super oily if I keep layering. I never go out of the house without the lotus sunscreen, As for night care routine, I apply argan oil after cleansing my face with the Chanel creamy cleansing milk, Post which I apply the Elizabeth arden visible difference skin balancing night cream. For under eye I use Forest essentials light hydrating hydra eye gel. I feel night care is more important and using good products that suit your skin makes a great deal of difference.
Favourite make – up products for Summer: Using the true match BB cream by loreal is more than enough for me. As foundations can make the skin oily. Liners and bright lip-shades like the MAC relentless red and ruby woo are my staple. There are days when I just go out with simple kohl and a lipsahde like the MAC twig and amorous. (You by now know I am a little mac crazy)
Product suggestions for your skin type (in summers): Like I said The lotus sunscreen is the best you could get in the market for a combination skin tone. No white cast and an SPF 40 is what you need!!
A quick Summer tip for our readers: At night apply a mixture of glycerine, rose water and lemon (2:3:1 in proportion) as your toner and wash your face with warm water in the morning. You will see visible difference in the form of reduced face tan and get supple skin in the morning.

Skin type : Normal (Extra sensitive)
Favorite Face wash : When it comes to face wash, I love experimenting different variants as long as they are free from too many chemicals. I prefer non-lathering SLS free face washes! Unless I need to step out, I try to avoid OTC cleansers and use only milk and the above mentioned powder to cleanse my facial skin. Dried sweet lime peels + chickpea flour makes an excellent oil balancing cleanser come face pack!
Favorite Body wash : I love using pleasant smelling body washes in this scorching weather! My personal favorites are The Nature’s Co Vanilla Cream body wash, Palmolive Crushed Coconut Body Wash and few TBS body washes! If I’m not in a mood to use shower gels/body washes, I go back to my homemade bath powder recipe that consists of chickpea flour, turmeric powder, rose petal powder and few other herbs. It acts like an ubtan and does wonders in softening my skin! It also is very natural and chemical-free!
Skin Care Products you use in Summer : As I mentioned earlier, I love variety when it comes to skin care! There’s no particular product that I stick to. I’m currently using the ‘Not Soap Radio’ shower gels, Plum Choco Latte Body Lotion, Auravedic Rose Saffron SLS free face wash, and Nivea Fruit Shine Lip Balms! Other than these, I LOVE using neem and turmeric together! The combination makes an excellent body pack that not only benefits skin; but it also balances the excessive body heat.
Favorite makeup products : To be honest, I am going sans ‘base makeup’ this summer! After my horrible chickenpox journey, I’m concentrating more on skin care than makeup. However, if I need to step out I’ll make sure to wear a tinted sunscreen that also doubles up as makeup. My current favorite is the Nature’s Essence Sun Ban lotion. I layer a thin coat of compact over it; put on my lippy/lip balm and I’m done with my makeup!
For my lips, I’m loving everything bright! Pure Fire from L’Oreal Paris new star red collection is my absolute favorite! It’s a deep tangerine orange with hints of red. So summery! The color stays for a long time and I must say it is insanely pigmented. For a light coral, I prefer using Avon Caressing Coral. It is very light, moisturizing and glossy on my lips!
Product suggestions for sensitive skin: Since I’ve a very sensitive skin, I take time to judge any product before including it to my routine. For people who have a similar skin type as mine, I suggest using light moisturizers, very good sunscreens and light-makeup! Never experiment new products on your (sensitive) skin – especially if any special occasion/date is nearing. I recommend using Vicco Turmeric Skin cream as a moisturizer along with a separate SPF (If you are stepping out!) NYX concealer in pot works great as a light every-day concealer. Lakme and Revlon foundations/compacts are good!
Maybelline, Nivea and Lakme lip balms are recommended! Stock few and use whenever your lips feel dry. A good lip balm with SPF will prevent your lips from darkening in summer. For the body skin, I suggest using non-oily lotions with SPF!
A quick Summer tip for our readers: Protect your skin as possible as you can from the hot sun! In places like Chennai, scarfs/caps are going to help more than sunscreens! In case of visible sun tan/sun burn, immediately wash your skin with cold water and apply cool aloe gel.
Always carry four things in your handbag – A face wash, a sunscreen, a lip balm and few face wipes. Splash your face with cold water multiple times throughout the day! Stay away from chemicals and use chickenpea flour + curd + turmeric to remove uneven tan! (It works like a charm!) A good routine and proper sun protection can help your skin shine throughout the summer!
