9 Beauty Essentials For The Upcoming Trip To Mountains
Summers are in its full glory and it is becoming literally impossible to bear the sun while going out for work or for some errands! Well, ideally this is also one of the best time to visit a hill station you have wanted to go since long because once the monsoon season starts, going to a hill station for a holiday might not be such a good idea due to sudden out pours & landslides known to occur commonly during the monsoons!
Well, for me the summers are going to be just sitting in the AC and staying indoors as much as possible but I am sure many of you must be having plans to visit the mountains and so here is an essential list of beauty essentials which you will definitely need to pack if you are heading to a hill station in the coming days! 🙂
1. A Hydrating Moisturizer
A hydrating moisturizer is a must while going to the mountains because high-altitude areas generally make the skin dry and lack moisture which might cause it to stretch & damage!
