Whether you’ve decided to vaycay or staycay why don’t you treat yourself to some new summer beauty products? They do say that change is as good as a holiday. Experiment with a new eye shadow shade, lip colour or simply arm yourself with a harder-working SPF…
1. WORK IT, HEAD TO TOE
Keep your skin silky and hydrated with our top choices for moisturisers: Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser in Cocoa Radiant, R90 and L’Occitane Shea Violet Body Cream Tribute to Women, R395
2. KEEP YOUR LIPS SEALED
First prep the skin with a primer before you rock your colour of choice. This season anything goes but the bolder, the better. Try Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Graffiti Pop, R295, or Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge, R550
3. SHINE ON
Try a palette – it gives you more options to play around with. Dolce&Gabanna’s Shimmer Pot works double time as a handy cheekbone highlighter too!
4. TREAT ‘EM WELL
Don’t underestimate the harmful effects that summer’s heat can have on your hair. In fact, December is a great time to dig out all of your old conditioner pots, mix together the last few drops and create your own conditioning treatments.
5. THROW SHADE
Block out the sun’s harsh UV rays with Uriage’s BarieSun XP 50+ Cream, R240, to protect your face.
6. GO FOR GOLD
Stay out of the sun this summer and rock a faux glow instead. CaribbeanTan’s Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream, R60 gives an instant bronze and conveniently washes straight off, which means no streaky lines!
