Handbag Essentials This Winter


With the serenading whiff of cold wind in the air and erratically chapping lips and peeling skin, winter season certainly calls for some preventive action when it comes to carrying cosmetics and skin care products in your handbag. Each of us have a different skin type and hence it is important to understand the requirements for the same in order to keep it hydrated and glowing all the time.

  • Body Oil

Primarily for women with dry and moderate skin type. A quick application of this after the shower or after washing your hands or feet is a must to ensure a protective layer is built around the skin that prevents any harm from the rough wind.

  • ┬áMoisturising Facial Cleanser

Avoid using any soap or face wash with alkali and stick to cleansers that have moisturising lotion or body oil added to them. If cosmetic is not the way, opt for herbal cleansers and naturally made face masks with organic ingredients.

  • Body lotion/ Moisturiser

This is a must have to ward off the cold and dry winter effect on your skin. Use a liquid based lotion instead of a cream as it spread evenly and hydrates the skin besides keeping it moisturised for a longer time.


  • Hair Serum

Your hair is as much under the scrutiny as your skin, hence some essential care for hair in winters is a pre-requisite for maintaining healthy bouncy hair. Shampoo and warm water can make the scalp dry. To counter the effect of the harsh chemicals just oiling is not sufficient, indulge in a vitamin based serum that will bring back the lustre and keep them frizz free.

  • Lip Balm

The lovely new shade your lip gloss may just end up looking like a blot if your lips are cracked and chapped. Give your lips an indulgent treatment by periodic application of an essential oil based lip balm to keep them soft and supple as you glow in the winter sun.
