Summer Handbag Essentials
By Barbara Ross

TP 201906 FASHION 01 2Summers are all about lovely pastel colours and skinny dipping in the pool. And let's not forget the beautiful bronzy glow that we all get from the sun!

But, at the same time, summers bring with them a number of hassles; like sweaty underarms, sun burn, clogged pores and oily faces.

While it is all fun and games for the most part, summers can turn worrisome and uncool, if you don't take proper care of yourself. For instance, the summer winds can be quite merciless. So how many #badhairdays have you had just because you stepped out without a scarf?

In the same way, there are a number of small things that you absolutely need to pay attention to during summers.

So here are a few handbag essentials that can save you from the many embarrassing moments that a sunny day can cause.





A sunscreen would perhaps be the most obvious and the most important essential to have in your bag at all times. You, of course, need to apply sunscreen before you step out, but most people are done with that. It is always forgotten that sunscreen needs to be reapplied every 2 to 3 hours in order for it to be effective. There are many brands that have come up with very handy and easy-to-carry packages of sunscreens, such as in the form of sticks. You can easily carry one of these in your bag and quickly reapply every now and then to keep the harmful rays of the sun at bay.

The next important thing that you absolutely need to have also has to do with sun protection. Sunglasses are more than just about fashion and glamour. They help protect your eyes and the large ones also protect the area around the eyes. It can provide relief from sun burn to a great extent.

Blotting papers

One of the biggest problems associated with bright and sunny days is an oily face. This is especially true in case of oily-skin beauties. You can step out looking beautiful and fresh, but end up looking like you just took a shower in oil by the time you reach your destination. Imagine the embarrassment when you show up looking like that at a party?

This is precisely why you need blotting papers. If you find yourself in a sticky situation, all you have to do is pull out a paper and blot away all the excessive shine to reveal a matte face.

Mini deodorant

We all know that sunny days mean sweaty days, as well. And you know what's more embarrassing than an oily face? Smelly underarms! But it is inevitable during the summers. Hence, what you can do is carry a mini-deodorant at all times in your handbag. Keep applying it every now and then, so that you can try and neutralize the bad smell that is caused by the bacteria in sweat.

A bottle of water

It goes without saying that summers can leave you feeling super dehydrated and tired. You absolutely need to drink lots of water. Hence, when you're going out, you always need a bottle of water in your handbag, because God forbid, you can never tell whether you'll end up in a place where there's no drinking water available.

Last, but not the least, you also need a pretty scarf in your bag. You can use it for a number of purposes. For example, you can protect your hair and face from the sun and the wind when you're outside. You can also use it to cover up your legs or shoulders in case you鈥檙e wearing something revealing, like a bikini. Additionally, you can make it an effortless fashion accessory, as well.
