Like a green smoothie for your hair, this moisture-locking mask is enriched with nourishing avocado to soften and soothe, plus vitamin C-rich kiwi (which helps boost shine and provide antioxidant protection to the scalp) – ideal for hair that's spent some time drying out under the hot sun. It's perfect for all hair types, but works particularly well for those of us with curls or coils.
Are your limbs in need of a little extra hydration after a day lazing by the pool? This quenching spritz combines ultra-hydrating, cooling aloe vera and chamomile to refresh skin in seconds. It's also infused with Kakadu plum – nature's most concentrated source of the antioxidant vitamin C – to aid in neutralising free radical damage. Keep this one in the fridge or cooler for when you need it most!
Dry summer skin calls for deep hydration, and this lightweight, whipped gel-cream from KORRES delivers! The key ingredient is Greek yoghurt, which creates a soothing, cooling sensation (perfect for post-beach skin). Meanwhile, the formula also works to support your skin’s microbiome (that’s the microorganisms that live on the surface), which in turn helps to reduce signs of dehydration and stress.
If you can’t go past a tan (but know better by now than to actually sunbake), Luna Bronze’s Gradual Tanning Moisturiser is the way to glow. It contains all-natural moisturising oils (coconut, rose hip and jojoba) that are perfect for after-sun care, plus vitamins A, B and E to improve the appearance of uneven skin texture and tone. Oh yes, and it develops into a natural bronze colour that’s better than the real thing!
While TLC is a great way to say sorry to sun-exposed skin, it’s also important to not make the same mistakes twice. This skin-quenching tinted gel from bareMinerals contains SPF 30 to add to your sun protection strategy (always use in conjunction with your primary sunscreen, eyewear and a hat!) – plus it’s super hydrating and provides the perfect hint of coverage for counteracting any redness.
