Summer Essentials - Shopping Guide
The glistening heat of north is killing me. Whereas people in Bangalore and Mumbai are enjoying the monsoon. I love the rain wafting through the window, lovely drizzle and wind blowing past my hair. I miss being in Bangalore (at times though). Anyway, we all need some respite from heat and take care of our skin. Here is a list of summer essentials to beat the heat. These are some of my random purchases.
I have reviewed this product before also. I love this Neem and Bergamot Polisher. The scrub is great and packed with all the natural ingredients. Your skin needs to get rid of dead skin cells and exfoliation is necessary two to three times a week depending on the skin type. This scrub is not coarse and can be used frequently. My only quibble is if you use it for body it will get over soon.

In summers you might not want to use heavy creams which can be sticky but your skin should be well hydrated. Jojoba Oil is a multi-purpose essential oil with plethora of benefits.
- Perfect for face, great for removing wrinkles
- Makeup remover
- For chapped dry lips
- Heals dry itchy, red blotchy skin
- Leaves body glowing
- The oil is very light, has a very pleasant smell and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy afterwards lending a shimmering touch to the skin
- You can apply 1 drop to damp hair for shine and frizz control
- It can be used for feet, encourages healing of the skin, prevents growth of bacterial and fungal microbes.
Use few drops with rose water or mix other essential oil and just pat on your face 3-4 times.

Just Herbs Skin Lightening Gel
I love this cream. I have reviewed other Just Herbs products before and I love their natural and cruelty free products. This skin lightening gel is light, non sticky and gets absorbed easily. I would say it is perfect for combination, normal or oily skin. If your skin still feels dry you can wear your moisturizer after this.

I am sure most of you already know about this sunscreen. Be it summer, winters, or monsoons you need a sunscreen anyway as UV rays are always present. However, during summers you need a sunscreen of higher SPF.
Neutrogena Sun Block provides protection against skin aging UVA and burning UVB rays and combines with it Dry Touch technology for an ultra light non-shiny finish.
