The Best Summer Beauty Buys
Summer can be a nightmare for the beauty addicts among us with frizzy hair, red faces and chapped lips being just the start! Luckily the high street is packed with summer specific products to help tackle the most difficult season of the year. Whether your holidaying in Ibiza or just hanging out in the park we bring you the products to stockpile this summer.
Clinique SPF 30 Body Cream £20:A UVA and UVB waterproof cream that’s full of anti-oxidants, perfect for normal to dry skin. It contains a wide range of cell-communicating ingredients as well as stabilized avobenzone for UVA protection. This body sunscreen is identical to Clinique’s Sun SPF 30 Face Cream, only you get more for your money with the body version and can apply to your face. Zoya Armor £11: Look after and prolong your manicure with this vegan friendly topcoat, after all it’s not just your skin that need protection from UV rays and chlorine. Mark Hill Summer Loving Protection Serum £6.49: Use this light-weight serum on dry or wet hair throughout the day, even after swimming, to smooth away holiday frizz and control wild beach hair if a smoothed out look is more your thing. Boots Soltan Once Face 8 Hour Sun Care Cream SPF30 £10: One of the worst things about sun cream is having to keep applying it which is why this product is a life saver. Applied once in the morning, before exposure to the sun, this easily-absorbed cream will protect you all day. Plus it has a hint of gradual self tan. Hawaiian Tropic Island Moisturising Lip Gloss SPF25 £6: Too much sun and lots of sea salt can leave lips cracked and sore. Not only does this product protect your lips with SPF 25, but it also keeps them soft with Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter and Vitamins A, C & E. Not to mention it smells (and tastes!) divine! Nars Multiple in Orgasm £29: Far better than powder we recommend sticking to creams in the hotter months to avoid clogged pours and Nars’ Multiple stick is the ultimate fool-proof multi-tasking product. Sweep across eyelids, cheeks, the décolletage or even down shins to highlight, contour and colour, nothing goes with a tan better than a bit of shine. It’s no wonder one is sold every 5 seconds.
