Therefore, you have too much goodness in one bottle. Just a dab of rose water on the go, and you’ll feel refreshed. It’s better to keep rose water in the refrigerator and take it with you when leaving the house.

Hand cream

Apparently, your delicate hands come in contact with hundreds of germs, bacteria and pollutants on public transport, greeting people, at grocery store and at work. Therefore, it is important to clean your hands throughout the day with a mild soap.

You could keep baby soap as that would not be too harsh on your skin. After properly cleaning and drying your hands, apply a small amount of hand cream to keep your skin hydrated or prevent your skin from aging too fast. Repeat the process throughout the day because your hands just need as much as your face to breathe and remain alive.

Lip balm

Your lips are just as prone to exposure from the sun and dryness as the rest of your face. Therefore, it is important to keep them hydrated always or you would have to deal with painful, chapped lips. Keep lip balms that hydrate your skin and contain sun protection since extensive sun exposure could cause dark spots on lips or overall akin darkening that would give an unsightly appearance.

Makeup wipes

There are times when you don’t just feel like having an cover-up on your face and just want to let your skin breathe. If not you may want to refresh your look by wiping off makeup, washing face and reapplying makeup before your next big meeting.

In that case, keep makeup cleansing wipes in your purse. Find out about the ones that are best for your skin, don’t clog pores and remove every trace or dirt. The point of a cleanser is to let your skin breathe and you should feel it after application. The skin should feel cool and make you really feel that it is now receiving oxygen. Furthermore, make sure that the ones you are getting do not cause acne breakout.

Moreover, stick to one brand if it has worked well for your skin. Changing brands constantly could also cause breakouts and blemishes.


Keep a moisturizing lipstick in your purse as it always comes in handy when you want to brighten your look. Even when you have removed make up or don’t have any makeup on, just wearing lipstick can make you look fresh.

Apply lip balm first then wear of a thin coat of lipstick. No one would notice your tired look when you have lipstick on that looks well-suited.

Therefore, that’s all you need to spice up your day and get going without having to worry about how you look. Go light on the makeup and just take care of the essentials so that your skin can take care of the rest.
