Here are our favourite things we like to use on those hot summer days roasting in the sun :)
Clinique After Sun Rescue With Aloe:This is great for all skin types and is very soothing after a day roasting in the sun. A little goes a long way, it smells great and has a light texture which leaves your skin feeling beautifully hydrated and soothed which is very important for prolonged periods of time outdoors to prevent sun damaged skin.

Tri Swim Anti Chlorine Shampoo:This is an amazing find which we found online. It is an amazing shampoo that gets rid of chlorine and its odour from your hair which is a pretty good buy for when you go swimming. The shampoo contains aloe which is very moisturising and conditioning for your hair, other ingredients are vitamins E and A and pro-vitamin B5 which removes the green tinge chlorine can give to coloured hair.

Biotherm Lait Solaire SPF 30:
It is very important to protect your skin in these summer months where the sun can lead to premature aging and skin cancer. This product is light in consistency and melts into the skin and spreads easily with fast absorption which does not leave a sticky residue so you don’t have to worry about sand sticking to your skin. At £16.50 it is a little bit pricey but it is definitely effective and sometimes you can find it on offer in Boots.
Rayban Wayfarer Blue Gradient Light Blue:
We love Rayban’s, they really are the coolest sunglasses out there! They are very stylish and the bright statement gives a modern twist on the traditional Rayban look which is perfect for the beach this summer. Click here for the web page.
Telescopic Water Proof Mascara By Loreal:
A mascara that gives your lashes great length and volume for a fake lash appearance. We love this mascara because of the thin wand which makes sure that every single lash is coated and separated which makes it easier to get the doe eyed look. The waterproof formula does not smudge and is great for this humid weather and days by the pool or in the sea. You can find this product at Boots.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume:
This is the epitome of a tropical getaway with overtones of coconut and orange blossom. You should definitely get this to finish of your beach attire and give a fruity yet delicious scent that will give you the confidence of a bronze goddess. We purchased our perfume here.
Chanel Holiday Nail Polish (617):
This orangey red shade is always hot in summer and is a vibrant fun colour for the beach. It looks great with all skin tones if you want to add a pop of colour. The nail polish may be expensive at a price of £17.50 but it is well worth the money as its intense colour and glossy formula is fast drying and long lasting so you don’t have to worry about it chipping on the beach. Our nail polish came from Boots.
A statement tote beach bag is essential for any day trips or holidays abroad. We love our bold coral shade bag with contrasting tan leather handles as it really makes your outfit summery, also it is perfect to hold all of your essentials. We got ours from TKMaxx last year but there are many more similar style bags that you can find.
Havaianas Flip Flops:
These are the coolest flip flops you can find; luckily you can get them in many different colours which are very on trend this summer. These comfy flip flops are perfect for walking around town or going to the beach and teamed up with a bright nail polish you will have fab looking feet! Get them here on the Havaianas website.
Bumble And Bumble Surf Spray:
This is great to spray in your hair, it gives you a sexy natural beach wave and reduces frizz which may occur in the humid summer. All you have to do is spray into your hair and leave it to dry. You only have to make sure that you don’t touch your hair too much as it will cause the surf spray to wear off. We got ours from their official website.
Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment With SPF 20:
In the summer months when you are out enjoying the heat, it is easy to forget about your lips. With this Shiseido sun protection lip treatment your lips will be protected from the sun’s UV rays as the SPF 20 in the balm prevents them drying out and cracking. You can find this fab purchase at Boots.
Fekkai Summer Hair After Sun Daily Mask:
The Fekkai hair mask helps to protect your hair from harmful elements when sunning yourself at beach. It has a rich formula that will stop your hair from drying out and keep it silky smooth. It is suitable for all hair types and we highly recommend this product if you want to have luscious locks in the summer times. Our came from their amazing website!
