  • Heat Rash: Red bumps and itchy rash on the skin is called heat rash. It usually occurs in hot weather. This rash affects almost any area of the body.
  • Solution: Avoid going out in the sun and try spending most of your time in shade. It will reduce the amount of sweat that you produce thereby, preventing heat rash.
  • Acne: Acne is the most common skin problem that men and women around the world suffer from.
  • Solution: Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers. Always remove your makeup at night otherwise it will block your pores and lead to more pimples on your skin.
  • Skin dryness: Skin needs a lot of care while travelling as you come in contact with pollution, dust, heat and more.
  • Solution: Pack a small zip-lock bag before stepping out in the sun with essentials including a hydrating cleanser, moisturiser, lip balm, hand sanitiser, hand cream and sunscreen.
