I was recently invited by RJ Megha on her Summer Special programme-Cool ho ja Sim Sim on Radio Mirchi. For all those who couldn’t tune into the frequency, here is a lowdown of the chit-chat:
Rule #1- Never ever ever step out of the house without applying sunscreen. Even if it a short walk to your car! The sun screen not only saves you from unwanted tanning (I love my summer tan) but also protects you from the harmful UV rays which can cause various skin problems. You can use BB creams with SPF for better coverage and a slight glow on the face.
Rule #2- Black liners are so passe! Try colored eye pencils this summer (avoid liquid eye-liners) and a bold lip color in matte. For more info check out my article on some easy and affordable summer makeup.
Rule#3- Wear flowy fabrics-cottons, linens in some soothing pastel colors like pink, violet, white, yellow etc. especially in the day. For an evening out-let your imagination run wild! Summer is the season to experiment!! Don’t forget to dress up the attire with some cool, funky accessories.
Rule#4- Peak summers is not a time to ignore personal hygiene. Get regular mani-pedis and waxing done. You may do it yourself if you can’t step out. After all, now is the time when you show off your legs in style. Don’t shy away from wearing perfumes and deodorants. Carry one with you and keep reapplying every 3 hours.
Rule #5- Wash your hair every 2-3 days using a mild shampoo and conditioner. Use dry shampoo if you are pressed for time.
Rule #6- Do not ignore skin care. Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing before going to bed is non-negotiable. Use your favorite cleanser, dry, tone your face and then moisturize it with an oil free moisturizer.
Last but definitely not the least, stay hydrated! Carry your own water bottle (preferably non-plastic) while stepping out.
And SMILE 🙂
Stay Gorgeous xx
