Hello girls, this post will a fun and of course a very useful post for you all. In this post, I have collaborated with my blogger friend, Sayantinee Bhattacharyya of Cherry on Top blog and we bring you a post which is twice as nice just like the Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash and Garnier Skin Naturals Apricot Pure Active Exfoliating Skin Scrub. She writes mostly about makeup and I focus more on skincare and together, we will give you suggestion on how to take care of your skin in summer followed by a lovely makeup tutorial from my dear friend.

As the temperature rises high in summer, our skin has to face the harsh sunlight everyday. Adding to that our skin feels oily, sweaty and thus attracts a lot of dirt in summer, not to forget the suntan and blemishes that joins in! Here are some handy tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant during summer:


  • Keep yourself hydrated. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day and carry water bottle while you go out.
  • Use sunscreen before going out in the morning. Apply the sunscreen atleast 30 minutes before you leave the house.
  • Use natural toner at home like cucumber juice, store it in fridge and use it whenever your skin feels dull or tired.
  • Cleanse your face twice a day with a good face wash that will remove dirt and oil effectively.
  • To get rid of tan, mix gram flour with yogurt and apply the paste all over the tanned area. Wash it off after 20 minutes.
  • Use shower gels and bath salts to get a glowing skin
  • Have a good sleep to reduce stress.

Once you get a glowing skin in summer, it’s time for some good makeup. Sayantinee will show you how to get simple and fresh and makeup tutorial for summer in five easy steps. Have a look at her tutorial below:

  • Prepare your base with any BB cream/ tinted moisturizer and concealer you like. Don’t forget to apply a matte and sweat-proof compact on top of that.
  • To add a natural flush to your cheeks apply some pink/coral blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  • Tightline your eyes with a black kohl. If you have very oily lower waterline like I do then skip tightlining your lower waterline.
  • Curl your lashes and apply a good amount of mascara.
  • Apply your favourite summery pink lipstick

Beat The Summer Heat

Heading out for a summer break? While you enjoy summer sun and your vacation, how do you keep your skin glowing and healthy? Though the sun may bring warmth, over exposure can harm your skin and hair in the long run. Don’t worry, here’s the list of summer must-do’s that shall keep your skin and hair woes at bay:

Get sun-protected:


A sunscreen with an SPF of 15 is well-suited for all Indian skin types. However, ensure that your sunscreen provides you with a balance of both UVA and UVB protection. Apply every 2-3 hours for effective results, especially after excessive sweating and exposure to water.

Stay hydrated:


Drink a lot of water, tender coconut, buttermilk and fresh juices to stay hydrated. Not all fluids help in keeping you hydrated, try and avoid caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee and coke tend to cause dehydration.

Hair Cleansing:


In summers, due to heat, sweat and dust your hair needs frequent cleansing. Ensure you use herbal shampoo and conditioner, as they are mild on your scalp and hair.

Avoid makeup meltdown:


Exfoliate your skin before applying makeup, this helps remove dead cells and allows the makeup to stay longer, as exfoliation makes your skin surface smooth. Try light makeup base to avoid sweating. Look out for a scrub with herbal ingredients like Apricot and Wheatgerm, it would be gentle on your skin.

Summer must-have:


Make sure you have sunglasses, a broad-rimmed hat and a pack of blotting paper in your travel bag to face summer heat with style! The article is attributed to Chandrika Mahendra, Principal Scientist, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company.
