Don't let the heat prevent you from looking your best. The Guide offers you tips on make-up and skin care for summer

Summer calls for a wardrobe makeover as well as changes in skin care and beauty routines. Sufyan Kapadia, beauty expert at Ben Nye, says the rise in temperature and humidity tends to melt away the make-up and makes you look hassled. “One should opt for melt-proof make-up for summer.

If you are going out, avoid using foundation or a concealer and go for a good primer which suits your skin type. Along with this, accentuate your eyes with a water-proof eyeliner along with a good mascara and a similar coloured eyeshadow.

If you will be out in the scorching heat all day long and want a zero-effort look, skip the make-up and instead apply sunscreen lotion and sport a pair of chic sunglasses.”

Must-haves in the clutch:
> Facewash: Use a face wash that suits your skin type and wash your face regularly.
> Sunblock: Sunblock is used to give protection from UVA and UVB rays. Before you head out in the sun, you must apply it.
> Lipbalm: It will prevent your lips from becoming dry and cracked.
> Deodorant: It will prevent body odour caused by bacterial growth.
> Eye pencil: In summer, opt for powder-based eye pencils which are generally available in dark matte shades.
> Blush or bronzer: This helps to give a dry look when you sweat more.
> Mascara: When picking a mascara, you should consider the formula you want (lengthening, thickening, waterproof or non-clumping).
