Beauty es­sen­tials for a hol­i­day in the moun­tains

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Head­ing to the moun­tains to ex­pe­ri­ence the win­ter chill? Don't for­get to pack lo­tion, lip balm, sun­screen and cu­ti­cle oil, says an ex­pert. Here’s a list of es­sen­tials that you need to pick up for the win­ter va­ca­tion:

Lo­tion and lip balm: The weather in the moun­tains can cause skin dry­ness. Take along a lo­tion and a lip balm that is rich in soya milk, body but­ter, co­coa or honey.

Sun­screen: It’s highly rec­om­mended that you ap­ply one with an SPF that pro­tects you from that harsh moun­tain sun­burn.

Hy­dra­tor: Your skin might lose mois­ture due to lack of hu­mid­ity in the air. So, use hy­dra­tors, which will lock the mois­ture in your skin. Ap­ply the hy­dra­tor be­fore go­ing to the bed.

Hair con­di­tioner: The chilly winds can leave your hair dry. Carry along a con­di­tioner, which keeps your hair’s mois­ture in­tact.

Hand cream: For smooth hands, take along a hand cream and use it af­ter wash­ing your hands or play­ing with the snow.

Cu­ti­cle oil: Nail es­sen­tials are gen­er­ally over­looked, which shouldn’t be the case as you’ll not want dry split nails and cu­ti­cles en­tan­gling in your pullovers. For this, cu­ti­cle oil is rec­om­mended. (In­puts by Gun­jan Gaur, Make-up ex­pert)
