Heading to the beach? We’ve found some of the best summer superheroes to ensure you have a fabulous day out.
Obviously, we are going to mention this first. An absolute essential, choose a waterproof sunscreen and reapply regularly. There is a huge range to fit your wants and needs – if you hate the feeling of sand sticking to you try the Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand Cream, Its ultra-dry finish will leave you clean as a whistle. If you’re looking for something to put over your makeup, try the La Roche Posay Anthelios Invisible Face Mist SPF50 for a breathable veil of protection that is also moisturizing.
Because there is no worse look than black streaks down your cheeks. Try the L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara recommended by celebrity makeup artist Delina Medhin. She says, “This is a classic mascara it layers beautifully, and it’s one that you’ll see in almost every makeup artist’s kit.”
Saltwater, sun, and sand is a recipe for matted hair. The Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer blends the nourishing benefits of a leave-in conditioner while detangling to leave you with a glossy finish. Knots, be gone.
A Cooling Mist
Keeping cool during a blistering heatwave at the beach is no easy feat, but cooling sprays are here for your rescue. Glossier’s Soothing Facial Mist is fuss-free, treats stressed skin and reduces the appearance of any nasty heat rashes. It also contains Rosewater and aloe, which will help you appear more awake.
Don’t forget your lips need some TLC when you’re spending all day in the sun. Opt for one with SPF like the Protective Lip Balm SPF 30 by Aesop. It has no white residue and leaves a slight translucent gleam, a great all-rounder.
Glowy Body Moisturisers
Show off your skin and add some glow! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Shimmer Body Oil is lightweight, non-sticky and packs some serious sheen. Skin will look hydrated and healthy.
