My must-have beauty products to carry in your bag this summer


Sunscreen, blisters to scrub… there are certain products to always have with you during the summer. GETTY IMAGES.

As with clothes or shoes, the cosmetics and beauty products we use in summer are not the same as the rest of the year. When choosing, we pay attention to counteracting the effects of high temperatures, solar radiation or chlorine in swimming pools on skin and hair. Also, since we’re on the go all day, we tend to look for items that are compact and lightweight in size that can easily be stowed in a purse, toiletry bag or beach bag.

Because of this, I have selected eight products that usually work very well for me at this time. These are easy to use, multipurpose products that I have had very good results with and with which it is possible to maintain beautiful skin or healthy hair during the summer months.

Face spray with sun protection

I’m a big fan of Avène thermal water all year round, but in the summer I usually replace it with a mist sunscreen. It allows for repeated use of sunscreen when needed (even when wearing makeup) and helps keep facial skin comfortably hydrated. If I’m not wearing the mist, I always wear this ISDIN face cream bottle which not only protects against the sun, but also does not burn the eyes when it comes into contact with water.

Moisturizing and repairing balm for different areas

Multifunctional products are perfect to take with you in your pocket or travel bag as they avoid carrying too many things with you. An example is this product by Elizabeth Arden, three in one that moisturizes, protects and soothes the skin. It has anti-inflammatory and healing effects and also works very well to relieve redness caused by sun exposure. In addition to the face, it can also be applied to the lips and other parts of the body if necessary.

floor glare protection

To remove excess sweat or fat from the face in a single pass, this keep rolling Revlon glare protection marketed in a compact format perfect for travel or in your pocket. It is made of volcanic rock, is reusable and keeps the skin looking fresh and beautiful despite the heat. In addition, as with EL PAÍS Escaparate, it is a product with very good ratings on Amazon.

Thermal hair protection

In the summer I usually pay more attention to my hair, as it dries out a lot from the sea water and humidity. So if I’m going to be out in the sun or water, I’ll put on a thermal protectant. This one from Revlon gives me good results as since it doesn’t need to be rinsed it can be used anytime and it helps me control frizz very well. Thanks to the spray format, it is convenient and not cumbersome.

Anti-Pull Brush

The wind or seawater tends to tangle my hair more than usual in summer, so I usually resort to a brush of this type, very compact and suitable for use on dry or damp hair, without fear to spoil them. This model from the British brand Tangle Teezer has spikes of two lengths to avoid pulling when untangling and an ergonomic shape that adapts perfectly to the shape of the hand.

lip balm

Despite the fact that it is an area that is very prone to dehydration in summer, it is usually the great forgetting of the face. For this reason, I always try to wear a lip balm like this with sunscreen and a special formula to prevent cracking and tightness. It is colorless and can be applied as often as you like.

Multipurpose colored pencil for lips and cheeks

With this two-in-one product from Milk Make Up it is possible to have an improvised lipstick or blush anywhere.I find it very practical because it takes up very little space and is very easy to apply thanks to its pen format. Not only does it add a touch of color, but it also moisturizes (it contains mango and avocado butters) so the feeling it leaves on the skin is very comfortable.

Bandages for blisters on feet

I usually wear it to treat possible blisters and chafing on my feet, which can be caused by rubbing sandals or ballet flats when it’s hot. I really like these from Compeed because they are padded, stay in place easily and relieve pain instantly. They are also very suitable for summer as they are waterproof.
