Top 10 beach beauty essentials
Sunscreen – Nobody should be without it. Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock, SPF 55, $24.95.
Lip Balm – We often forget about sun damage to our lips. Keep them kissable and soft with a lip balm with added SPF. Burt’s Bees Sun Protecting Lip Balm, SPF8, $10.
Moisturiser – Being out in the sun can dry your skin, so keep it supple and soft with an intense daily body moisturiser. St Ives Deep Restoring 24hour Moisture, $9.99.
Surf Spray – Get beach hair without the water with a dousing of salt spray styler. Simply spritz into damp hair and allow to air dry for mussed up and textural waves. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, $57 from Mecca Cosmetica.
Perfume – Designed with a lightly intoxicating blend of sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin, this captures the atmosphere and attitude of summer. Bobbi Brown Beach eau de parfum, $115.
Make-up removing wipes – Fix up any smeared make-up issues after beach cricket games with a quick and easy facial wipe (these are also great for mopping up ice-cream drips). NIVEA Daily Essentials Fragrance Free Cleansing Wipes, $9.99.
Waterproof mascara – Avoid the old racoon eyes after swimming with mascara that stays in place. Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes Waterproof Mascara, $58.
Humidity Blocker – Protect your locks from frizzing up in the heat with a humidity blocker. Apply before hitting the beach and then throughout the day for backup. Joico Design Collection Humidity Blocker, $31.50.
Water – The number one most important beauty essential for summer is water. Staying hydrated will keep your skin plump and healthy, and ward off early signs of ageing.
Aloe Vera – Show your skin some love after a day out in the elements with soothing Aloe Vera. Sukin Aloe Vera Gel, $11.
