Mon­soon essen­tials for your bag

The mon­soon can be a tough bat­tle when you have to step out. Al­ways keep some essen­tials handy, so that the rain­drops don’t turn out to be a spoiler for your look. Here are the things that you must have in your bag this mon­soon:

Face­wash: The rainy sea­son can also be termed as the sea­son of sweat. To steer clear of any sweat-re­lated out­breaks, as well as to pre­vent in­fec­tions, it is im­per­a­tive to wash your face regularly dur­ing the day. Keep a good qual­ity, anti-bac­te­rial face wash handy and cleanse your face at least once dur­ing the whole day spent out­side.

Wet wipes: It may not al­ways be pos­si­ble for you to wash your face dur­ing the work day. Opt for al­co­hol-free and an­tibac­te­rial high-qual­ity wipes. Many of the top vari­ants in the mar­ket are in­fused with el­e­ments like Vi­ta­min C, aloe vera and rose wa­ter that don’t just cleanse but also re­fresh and re-hy­drate the skin.

Com­pact: Say good­bye to foun­da­tion in this weather, as it may run with the sweat. It can also get very messy in case you get drenched in the rain. Make sure you have a good com­pact in your bag in­stead. Its pow­dery tex­ture is ideal to give you a matte look and keep that highly un­de­sir­able oily look at bay.

Wa­ter­proof eye­liner and ka­jal: Avoid dense liq­uid eye­liner. They will ei­ther smudge in the rain or with your nat­u­ral per­spi­ra­tion. Swap the liq­uid prod­ucts with a wa­ter­proof ka­jal (kohl) or a smudge-free gel liner. Ap­ply a thin layer to make your eyes pop with­out any chances of it bleed­ing.

Um­brella: Put your fash­ion sense at work and pick a piece that is vi­brant and strong. A pretty and eye-catch­ing um­brella is some­times all the ar­mour you need in the mon­soon to make a strong style state­ment.
