The skin soother Susanne Kaufmann Hyaluron Body Gel
Nothing beats the mood-boosting appeal of sun-kissed skin, but in the pursuit of that summer glow, a soothing gel should always be kept close at hand. Susanne Kaufmann’s body gel does exactly what you need it to and is intensely soothing, hydrating and cooling on post-sun skin. Containing hyaluronic acid in three molecular sizes (meaning it penetrates deeper), it is also enriched with aloe vera to ensure that this brilliant skin soother calms irritated skin after a day in the heat – or even post-hair-removal.
The rehydrator Nécessaire The Body Serum
With five weights of hyaluronic acid and niacinamide infused into this silky, sink-in-fast serum, this really is the product that everyone with dry, dehydrated limbs has been waiting for. Layer it under (or mix into) your usual body lotion (in the same way we layer facial serums) and you will see a real difference in the quality and glow of your skin. A vacation essential.
The lightweight nourisher Mutha Body Oil
It’s the fast-absorbing, velvety texture of this dry oil that really sets this product apart. Plus, it boasts a beautiful blend of botanical seed oils, including apricot oil for suppleness, organic grape-seed oil to smooth out dryness, and nourishing organic rosehip oil, which also mimics the effects of retinol, helping to fade pigmentation and stretch marks. Use it daily for plumped-up, gleaming, healthy-looking skin without any leftover stickiness.
The radiant bronzer Rose Inc Solar Infusion Soft-Focus Cream Bronzer in Kauai
Those fine lines resulting from dehydration can be exacerbated by a heavy-handed approach to bronzing. But this creamy, satin-finish bronzer is buildable and lightweight, so it won’t settle in any creases or emphasize dry patches. What’s more, it has been formulated with tourmaline and quartz, which blur the appearance of pores and deliver beautiful radiance to skin.
The all-rounder Charlotte Tilbury Glow Toner
This acid-free toner goes beyond balancing out pH and refining pores – it also bridges the gap between a cleanser and a moisturizer, adding an extra layer of protection and preventing your skin from feeling tight. We find this works particularly well because it acts like a booster that helps products penetrate your skin to make it serum-ready.
The space freshener Jo Malone London Orange Blossom Diffuser
These diffusers are famed for their ability to subtly scent a space, and this sparkling floral fragrance is perfect for adding a clean, cooling freshness to any room. The beautiful summer scent of neroli brings that classic Mediterranean-garden aroma indoors – but in a soft, enveloping way you’ll love.
The frizz fighter Olaplex No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo
To stop summer frizz – especially if you have curly hair – it’s important to use a clarifying shampoo with a low pH balance, such as this one from Olaplex. Its moisturizing, non-stripping and super-cleansing properties remove all those impurities that can come with summer (think excess oil, hard-water minerals, city pollutants and chlorine). The formula also contains Olaplex’s iconic bond-building technology, which helps curls pop and dials down frizz on any type of hair texture.
