Another thing to carry in your handbag is a pair of sunglasses that will protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the UV rays. Moreover, a pair of chic sunglasses can definitely up your style quotient.

Mini Deodorant:

Germs love the summer heat as well as the moisture which tend to come with sweat, so sanitizer is also a must have in your summer bag. Always use a hand sanitizer before you indulge in any snacking.

A tinted lip balm or gloss:
