Apart from a few glitches (you know who you are rainy days) summer has been coming along nicely. With these sunny days and sultry nights however come the obligatory heatwave issues… you might have discovered a few subtle-but-definitely-there tan lines, your hair may be veering slightly to frizz, plus there are all the skin issues that come with over-heating, air-conditioning and staying fresh despite the heat.
So to help you through those heatwaves we’ve pulled together our guide to the beauty ‘knights in shiny packaging’ everyone should be investing in this season.
Avoid the frizz a la Monica and the resultant cries of "It's the humidity!" with this silicone-free spray from Color Wow. Particularly great for colour-treated hair, this formula coats hair with an invisible, water-resistant veil, for up to three shampoos giving you an enviably sleeker mane.
The sun's not for everyone, a tan however? That's another story. If you prefer the shade, but also like to add on a couple of shades, these Self Tan Facial Drops can be mixed with your daily moisturiser to give your skin a gradual, glowing tan that looks like you just stepped off the beach.
Multi-taskers are a life-saver when it comes to travelling and Decleor's Cica Balm covers a lot of bases - literally. Made with essential oils, this weightless cream is great for everything from relieving dry elbows to using as a daily moisturiser on skin irritated by the heat and other elements.
We love everything in this luxe collection. A Rich Cleansing Oil to help remove make-up, a Rose Hydro Mist that will refresh and give you a gorgeous glow, plus Night Cream, an Eye Treatment and you can opt for Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF 30, perfect for every day.
This brilliant Dry Shampoo not only cleanses the scalp, it soaks up excess oil too, leaving your locks looking shiny and fresh. It’s just what you need in the summer, when you don't want to wash hair too often to avoid it getting oily, but the heat makes you want to wash it every day.
This super gentle body wash is a fantastic choice for the hot season. Stimulating and soothing, it will not only cleanse blocked pores and remove dirt, sweat and excess oil, but also leave skin feeling tingly-fresh. The accompanying wipes are handy to have in your bag for a quick refresh on the go.
