Keep a pack of wet tissues in your handbag as it is the easy way to wipe away dirt from your face when you are travelling. Ofcourse washing your face with a face wash gel is a better idea but in case you cannot wash, then wet tissues is the best option.
Take care of your feet in summer. It is a much neglected part in ones body. Have it pedicured once a month. Wash them throughouly and pay attention to the places in between the fingers as these places too sweat. After washing pat it dry and apply talcum powder on them. Foot deodrant is also available in the market these days. If you have a problem of stinky feet then use it.

Use less accessories as possible, especially necklaces and so on because as you sweat the parts that will cause itching and redness. A nice earing and a bracelet will match any dress.
Hair, avoid leaving it open as it tends to get dry and damaged in the sun. Tie a pony or use a hairband to pin up the hairs to make yourself comfortable.

Dressing in summer is again on ones comfort. It is the occasion that demands the way of your clothing and at times it comes with a compromise with your comfort. Like for a religious function if you hafve to wear a saree, you might not ebe comfortable wearing a saree for a long time but the situation demands to. After a time you will feel like removing it and wearing something that you are comfortable in. Back to summers, I think wearing loose cl:othes will be comfortable. Light clothing will help your body breathe. Lets have a look into this too:-
Stick to cotton clothes as it is natural and it is the best.
Avoid using synthetics to the maximum as it does not allow the sweat to evaporrate.
