1. Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen should be a crucial part of your skincare routine this summer. It will keep your complexion even, protect against visible signs of premature ageing and reduce skin cancer.

2. Self-tanner

A popular and safer option for lovers of tanned skin. Self-tanning products give the skin the ultimate tanned look without exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays.

3. Tinted moisturiser

Whatever your age, skin tone or skin type, tinted moisturiser evens out, brightens and smoothes out the skin’s complexion. Hiding away dark circles, spots and redness.

Facial mists are refreshing to the skin and instantly hydrate. Quality mists are packed with goodness.

5. Cheek tints

Cheek tints are perfect for those hot summer days when you need something much lighter and dewy compared to your regular blusher. Rouge tints are easy to use and can double up as a lip tint.

8. Bronzer

A good bronzer will give your face a tanned look if you haven’t had time to catch the sun. Bronzer gives the skin a healthy glow adding warmth and depth.


9. Beach hair products

10. Bright eyes

Hours in the sun can leave your eyes feeling tired, puffy and sore. But, a refreshing gel massaged around the eyes helps reduce wrinkles and give you a soothing, cooling feeling.
