Every woman would agree that no matter how much we try to declutter our handbags, they never seem light and yet in a time of crisis, we never seem to have the right item to pull out from our bag. We are just not able to predict what we might need from our purse in the eleventh hour.
However, there are some universal items that always come to our rescue and should necessarily be there in our bags. We have curated a list of handbag essentials that you need to pack before stepping out of the house. Here we go!
A lip balm comes very handy on days when you have chapped lips or have a sudden meeting to attend. A lip balm keeps your lips hydrated and soft by adding necessary moisture to them.
It is even better to use a tinted lip balm which adds some colour to your lips along with the healthy plump. Not every day has to be a lipstick day, too much lipstick can harm your lips. You can browse through beauty skin care on amazon to find yourself a perfect lip balm.
We never know what we might have to touch, and considering the amount of things we touch everyday, we definitely should have a sanitiser handy with us.
Whether it’s after a public transport ride, or having to eat at our work desks, we do not want our hands to be dirty and it is too much of a pain, sometimes, to look for washroom, which is where sanitiser acts as our saviour.
Winters can be harsh on your skin and can make it dry. Washing your hands too much or using too much sanitiser can also make your hands dry. And nobody likes dry hands?
It is good to have a small-sized hand cream in your handbag, which gives your hands much needed moisture and keeps them soft.
You wait for your aunt to arrive for long, but she always has a habit of turning up when you least expect her. Situation sounds familiar to you?
Well, most of us are taken by surprise by our aunts which is why we should always keep a tampon or sanitary napkin in our handbag because we never know when our aunt choses to drop by or when we are able to save someone else’s day.
Now, pepper spray is one underestimated essential in our handbags. It never hurts to be armed with a pepper spray because we never know when we would be in need of it. You will, no doubt, feel more safe and confident whether it is day or night.
Whether it is an unexpected meeting, a movie night with friends or a date night, you never know where your day might take you. It is good to have a travel-sized perfume in your handbag as it adds last moment touch of freshness on you and makes you ready.
Now, it is also important to not have a stinking mouth at work, or unexpected meetings or outings, which is why you should always stock your bag with chewing gum and mints.
You did not know you would be invited to a party after work? Do not worry, that eyeliner, along with the lip balm and perfume in your bag, can give you a touchup and make you ready for the party.
Be it a bad news, a fight with your husband or boyfriend, or common flu, it is good to carry a small packet of soft tissues in your bag so that you are not in a mess.
Safety pins are our life savers in situations when we pop our button, seam or snap our necklace. These can be used as a temporary fix in such situations and can save us from embarrassment. And, you never know when you are able to make someone’s day with that small safety pin in your bag.
There is absolutely no need to unnecessarily stuff your bag with items you hardly use, instead, keep ones that come in handy in moments of crisis.
