The holiday countdown has begun, but is your beauty regime set for the sun?
We bring you the tips, tricks and must-have products for looking fabulous – while staying protected – from top to toe

SUN-KISSED SKIN

Don’t let your desire for a golden glow let you forget the first rule of skincare: protection means perfection. Whether the sun is shining or there’s full cloud cover, always apply an SPF before hitting the beach

ADD SHINE

Lock in moisture after sun exposure with a
nourishing treatment, such as Josh Wood
Radiant Shine Hair Treatment Oil. It enhances
natural shine, leaving a polished, glossy look

LOVE YOUR LOCKS

A super-conditioning
treatment is a great
way to protect hair
from the drying effects
of salt water and sun.
Try Philip Kingsley
Swimcap, a true
holiday-hair saviour

SMOOTH & SLEEK

Revive hair after a dip with a smoothing serum packed
with plant actives – try Tara Smith Base Coat Serum

EFFORTLESS MAKE-UP

Beach make-up should be low maintenance. Keep it simple with water-resistant formulas that promote a sun-kissed look while blocking harmful UV rays;
finish with a flash of colour on the lips and cheeks

DIVE IN

There’s no need to skip
mascara in the surf –
just choose a waterproof
formula such as Pür
Minerals Big Look
Mascara, which won’t
budge when you swim

TAN SMART

The key to creating a
healthy-looking glow? Sun
cream that incorporates a touch
of self-tan. Murad Absolute
Bronzing Boost with SPF 15
will protect your skin while
giving your colour a lift

PUCKER UP

Make your pout pop with a slick of bright colour. Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Poppy stays put and seals in moisture
