The heat can make you feel like a helpless, melting gelato, but the upside of summer is that it's the time to embrace all things 'cool'. Hydrating seasonal juicy fruits, bright summer salads, soft, cotton clothing, breezy sundresses-and a whole lot of shedding of layers.
It's important to give our beauty stash a cool summer edit too. Let go of rich, heavy textures for lightweight, sheer formulas; muted nudes and burnt burgundies for pops of cheery red, pink and orange, and a burst of sunshine with aquatic or floral scents that soothe and refresh.
Here's how to make the most of summer with the best summer beauty picks at DLF Promenade to glow and stay cool.
