​Summer Beauty Essentials

The sunny season is upon us! But if you want to hit the streets looking hot (pardon the pun), and more importantly FEELING hot, you’d better get your summer beauty arsenal ready!

Here are our tried and tested products and tips for looking and feeling your summer sensational best, so be sure to add these to your wish list this Christmas!
 

SUMMER SKIN

Summer dries us out, head to toe. Here’s how to stay hydrated, moisturised and glowing.

Hacks:
  • When fake tanning: Get your pedi done first to avoid tan being soaked/scrubbed off and shave at least 14 hours prior to tanning, or your pores will soak up the tan (hello spotty legs!)
  • Check the expiration date of your sunscreen. Yes… sunscreen expires and becomes less effective!
  • Pop some skin care products in your fridge such as eye gel and after sun gel. After a warm day in the sun, you’ll feel fabulous

SUMMER HAIR

Beach hair is gorgeous, we all love a little Vitamin Sea! But, there’s a way to get your hair looking luscious and keeping it from drying out and snapping off! That’s the hair on your head… hair elsewhere… be gone!

Hacks:
  • Coconut oil is a great DIY leave in hair conditioner, to protect your tresses post a sunny session.
  • Dryer sheets can be used to settle frizzy hair. Run it over the top and voilà!
  • Baking soda and water made into a paste is a great way to protect hair from that delightful green chlorine tinge. Simple slather on after a swim, leave for a few minutes and rinse off.

SUMMER HUES

While you’re soaking up the brilliant yellow warmth of the sun and soaking in the aqua depths of the ocean, add your own on trend splash of colour to your personal palette. This season it’s all about dewy skin, playful hues and peachy perfection.

Hacks:
  • Invest in a quality waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Not just for swimming, but for daily use. You’ll sweat more and rub at your eyes more in Summer.
  • Polished nails dunked in cold water will help it set more quickly.
  • Primer is more important than ever in summer! Give your skin an extra layer of moisture and your makeup another reason to not dry out.
