The sun is blazing outside and we’re thinking of mojitos or lemonade (if you’re under 18) and lazing by the beach. You might have read our piece on 10 must haves for the summer but what about your beauty must-haves? Don’t worry, I have you covered. You only need 5 items to keep you oh-so-cool during the summer months.

1) Sunscreen
Avene Suncreen
Avene Suncreen

Now this is an absolute essential – the higher the SPF, the better protection you get to keep those pesky wrinkles away and prevent sun damage. If you don’t like the creamy formulations, opt for a spray-on. We love Avene’s spray-on suncreen with SPF 50+ available at department stores for ₹2050.

2) Bright Nail Polish
Sally Hansen Nail Polish
Sally Hansen Nail Polish

Flaunt your pedicure in open toe sandals or thong slippers. Forego the berry hues and blacks – wear bright oranges, iridescent shades or neons. The bolder the better! We’re crushing on Sally Hansen’s Xtreme wear range.

3) Hydrating Lip Balm
Clinique Chubby Stick
Clinique Chubby Stick

We absolutely love the crayon formulations. They work double duty – give our precious pouts some much needed hydration and also a boost of colour. What’s more is that this doubles up as a make-shift blush or eye-shadow. We love Clinique’s chubby sticks available at all Clinique stores for ₹1025.

4) Facial Mist
The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Facial Mist
The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Facial Mist

Need a boost of hydration in the sweltering heat? This handbag friendly facial mist from The Body Shop is your companion. With Vitamin C as its core ingredient, you’re bound to have an instant burst of freshness. Available at all The Body Shop stores nationwide for ₹995.

5) Mascara
Lakme Eyeconic Mascara
Lakme Eyeconic Mascara

You may not feel like wearing make-up during this season but a simple swipe of mascara will open up your eyes – making them look larger. Pick a curling one such as Lakme’s Eyeconic for ₹250.
