1. Madhu ( DenDiva )
Favourite Face Wash:I use Himalaya’s Neem Facewash.I’m using it for a long time now.
Favourite body washe for Summer:I love is Biotique’s Apricot Body Gel because it gently exfoliates leaving the skin fresh and is 100% soap free
Skin Care Products you use in Summer : I apply Lotus Herbal’s Safe Sun Intensive Sun Block spray (SPF 50) When I go out .I apply Parachute Advanced Summer Butter Smooth Body Lotion as my skin gets dry in summers.
Favorite makeup products for Summer: I like Maybelline BB Stick Clear Glow for my face. It has SPF , so you can skip Sunscreen if you want. And it feels really light on skin, gives even and nice coverage. And for Lipsticks I love the Maybelline Pink Alert POW2. Pink/Coral shades which gives a fresh look to the face in summers.
Product suggestions for your skin type (in summers): I already given the products names above.. nothing more to share as I don’t use a lot of products 🙂
A quick Summer tip for our readers: Drink lots of water, eat fruits, Keep your skin moisturized. Sunscreen is must while going out ,apply 10-15 mins before you go out. Give your skin a break with minimal makeup as you are going to sweat it out anyways! Dress comfortably and keep a pair of shades & umbrella handy. And you are all set for summer..
2. Purva Vats (Planet Beauties)
Favorite Face wash : Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron & Neem Facial Cleanser
Favorite body wash : PalmoliveThermal spa Skin renewal Shower gel
My current skin care routine :
For day : I use FE kashmiri saffron & neem Facial cleanser which has to be my favorite.. It works absolutely wonderfully and is gentle enough to be used for any skin type. I use it in the morning followed by Vichy thermal spa water and Vlcc Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion Spf 30 . Since I have very oily skin, the sunscreen+vichy water combo is enough to moisturize my skin . When I need extra hydration I use cetaphil moisturizing cream which suits my sensitive skin quite well.
For night time: Because I wear makeup, the first thing i do as soon as i come back from office is to remove the makeup with the help of Johnson’s baby oil/olive oil.I cleanse my face with Saslic DS Foaming Face Wash by Cipla followed by votre pore shrink toner and cetaphil moisturizing cream consetrating more of it around my eyes.
I scrub my face with Vlcc Indian berberry face scrub twice a week
Favorite makeup products for Summer: Mac Prolongwear concealer, elf HD powder in corrective yellow/maybelline clear glow face powder, elf makeup setting mist and Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in scarlet drill.
Product suggestions for your skin type (in summers): When it comes to makeup I believe less is more. Go for a foundation that is light on skin ( I love Lakme Absolute Mattreal skin natural mousse) and spot conceal the areas that require coverage. For girls with very oily & problematic skin like me should definitely try out Mac prolongwear concealer.. it helps covering acne and dark circles very effectively. I mostly gravitate towards my elf HD powder in corrective yellow to set my face so if you could get your hands on it, just grab it. I love heavily kohled eyes and my favorite currently is lakme eyeconic.
A quick tip (on Summers) for our readers: Sunscreen is a must.. Never ever skip it.

Skin Care Products you use in Summer :I am a lazy person and don’t use many products on daily basis, but for when I use them they are:
I am a lazy person and don’t use many products on daily basis, but for when I use them they are:
Toner: Tea Tree skin toner from Fab India
Serum: Youth Infinity Skin Firming Serum from Lakme
Moisturizer: Organic Surge blissful daily moisturizer
Eye Gel: Light Hydrating Hydra eye gel
Special Mention: Benzoyl peroxide gel (I use this during night time, when I have breakouts on my skin)
Favorite makeup products : I don’t like to apply foundation on my skin during summers. Most of the girls wear a BB cream and apply kajal and are good to go. But unfortunately, Kajal does not suit me. So my favorite makeup products for summers are loose powders, a colored lip balm and a simple black gel liner with a little tint of blush.
Product suggestions for combination skin :
- Benefit Professional: Though I do not use it on daily basis, but Benefit’s professional does a great job in controlling the oil content on my T zone.
- Revlon whipped cream foundation: Regardless of the temperature, Revlon’s whipped cream foundation stays on me for the whole day without looking oily.
- For moisturizers, Organic Surge moisturizer is working great on me.
- Tea Tree toner from Fab India
A quick Summer tip for our readers: As everyone says, drink lots of water, it not only hydrates your body but makes your skin glow too. Also, include a toner in your skin care routine, toners does really help to make your skin look better.

Product suggestions for normal to combination skin :
I have a normal skin type but my T-Zone gets oily only during summers therefore I like to moisturize my skin well. The moisturizers I have mentioned above are good, with regular use, they have helped my skin stay normal. Use a gentle & effective cleanser, that will clean but not dry out your face; the TBS Aloe Face Wash is a nice foamy cleanser, combination-oily skin types should opt for a foam based cleanser in Summers. I use the Neutrogena Dry Touch sunscreen & reapply it every 2-3 hours if I’m outside. You can use that, if it does not work out, Banana Boat Sport Sunscreen is also nice & lightweight & leaves the skin matte. Opt for a sunscreen that is over SPF30 & has UVA & UVB protection. I recommend using a deep cleansing face mask like The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask once a week.
A quick Summer tip for our readers: Always wear a good sunscreen, drink lots of water & don’t burden your skin with too much product when you’re out in the sun unless its absolutely needed. Invest in long lasting makeup products, they are useful for other occasions as well.
5. Himanshi Sharma (FreshFaceBeauty )
Favorite Face wash : My all time favourite face wash is Ponds Pimple Clear White 10 in 1 Face Wash
Favourite Body Wash : Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage
Favorite makeup products : Maybelline Baby Lips and Gel Liner.
Product suggestions for combination skin type :
1) Lakme CC cream – very affordable and best option for summer instead of foundation.
A quick Summer tip for our readers:
1) Try and skip foundation and go for a tinted moisturiser or BB/CC cream. Foundation will only get runny in the hot and sunny outside conditions
2) Look for cleansers, toners, makeup, and moisturizers that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. Cleanse, tone and moisturize with gentle products everyday.
6. Swati Bhat from Curious and confused me :
Favorite Face wash : Olay Total Effects 7-In-1 Anti Aging Foaming Face Wash Cleanser ( All time fav)
Favorite body wash for Summer: Any brand which has lemongrass or Mint in it.
Skin Care Products you use in Summer : Ponds Gold Radiance Youth Serum (twice in a day), Lotus Herbals Alphamoist moisturizer ( Day time), Vedantika AntiAcne face mask, VLCC eyecream ( twice a day), Just Herbs Fair’e Mulethi-Khus Skin Lightening Gel . Lotus Sunscreen gel.
Favorite makeup products for Summer:
Lakme duo coral blush, Mny bold matte 3, wet and wild lipstain in Stiff Pink, Faces long wear pencil in black sparkle.
Product suggestions for your skin type (in summers): Colorbar primer, Lakme Absolute Matt real skin natural mousse, Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Deborah eye primer for that Oily lids. I don’t use concealer during summers. Too much product on the face gives a oily, sticky, melting feeling.
A quick Smmer tip for our readers:
- Go light with base products,
CC BB will do; Add coral tones in the makeup ;Bright colors for nails;
When I wear a bright lipstick I loose the blush and wear sheer layer
of shiny Bronzer, try it.
- Primer is a must if you are going to have a long day, you might sweat but makeup product will not budge.
- Do not skip sunscreen, I repeat Do not skip sunscreen. Make sure there is SPF in lipbalm as well. If you have had a long day, as soon as you get home wash your face and use anti tan product. I rub my face withTomato, that works best for me.
- Wipe the oil off face before touchup or powdering again.
