It’s time for some much-needed sunshine! Pack that SPF, top up your fake tan and slip your brightly polished toes into your new sliders.

We’ve got the tips and skincare products to make your summer holiday more beautiful.

PREP YOUR SKIN FIRST

The flights are booked, your bikini is packed, but what about skincare? If you’re a fan of a pre-holiday golden glow, try a gradual selftan for a subtle touch of colour. Prep with an exfoliator first to get skin smooth and fresh, then apply a moisturising gradual self-tan lotion to build up some natural colour before you reach the beach. Another travel skincare tip? Pack a hydrating sheet mask to use as soon as you land to help combat travel-related dehydration.

DOUBLE-DUTY BEAUTY

If you’re just packing a carry-on bag, take multitasking products to save on space. A tinted lip balm will add colour, sheen and moisture to lips but can also double up as a pop of colour on cheeks. A mini can of dry shampoo gives you a day between washes and adds some beachy volume and texture to clean hair. Micellar water is a triple treat that’s a facial refresher, make-up remover and toner when you’re on the go. Stash it in the mini-fridge for a cooling, post-poolside treat.

SUN CREAM IS ALWAYS A SKINCARE STAPLE

Yep, we all know we need it – but it’s important to keep reapplying when you’re on sunnier shores. Don’t miss the tops of your ears and even your scalp if your skin is extra sensitive. For a touch more protection, carry that wide-brimmed hat wherever you go. Why not blend in a spot of your foundation with your SPF to give it a subtle tint?

MAKE IT A MINI

Pack less so you can bring back more, right? Holiday shopping is a go! Save on space and stock up on travel-sized skincare and haircare favourites, or decant your regular shampoo and conditioner into smaller, refillable containers. If you’re worried about air pressure affecting your products in the hold, open up your bottles and squeeze out excess air before sealing them again. They’ll stay intact and your clothes will be lotion-free once you land.

BRING HOME THE TROPICS

No plans for an exotic holiday this year? That’s okay – bring the tropics to you! Transform your bathroom into a holiday haven. Line up the coconut-scented moisturisers, pampering sheet masks, fruity body scrubs and tropical body oils. And if you’re longing for beachy, textured waves, a scrunch of a salt spray in your hair will give you instant back-from-the-beach tresses.
