PACKING FOR THE SUN: THE BEST (LATE SUMMER) BEAUTY PICKS

1. CELLULAR AFTER SUN, £33.95, THE ORGANIC PHARMACY

When you’ve been in the sun all day, the last thing you want is chemicals touching your tender skin. This after sun is jam-packed full of natural ingredients such as Rose Hip, Nettles, Coconut Oil and Aloe to soothe and hydrate the skin.

2. NATURAL SUNSCREEN SPF 30, £25, BARE MINERALS

This is one of my best summer buys. If you don’t like feeling so exposed by going totally makeup-free on the beach, this is perfect. It has all the  protection you’d expect but in a powder form. It’s oil-free, preservative free and completely natural meaning no blocked pores when you get hot.

3. TRANQUILITY BATH & SHOWER OIL, £40, NEOM ORGANICS

Once hooked on their home fragrances I confessed that I could “bathe in that smell” and luckily, now I can. A truly beautiful company that produces the most addictive of scents, Neom has created an English Lavender, Sweet Basil and Jasmine shower oil made with pure essential oils and natural ingredients. This is perfect to retain moisture in the skin making tans last longer.

4. PROTECTIVE HAIR VEIL, £21.50, AVEDA

Aveda’s suncare range is a must-have when packing for hotter climes. Part of a three-course protective system which includes a Clarifying Shampoo and Hair Mask, the Protective Hair Veil has UVA/UVB filters derived from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils to protect the hair against harmful rays. Meanwhile, organic shea butter, coconut and palm oils condition and detangle tresses-perfect after those long days on the beach. 

5. TINTED MOISTURISER, £34, LAURA MERCIER

When it’s hot and humid, the last thing you feel like doing is applying base makeup which, let’s face it, will melt off your face as soon as you step outside! This tinted moisturiser is ideal for giving skin even, lightweight coverage without feeling greasy or shiny. Featuring antioxidant vitamins it protects the skin leaving it dewy and gorgeous.

6. THE GREEN BALM, £9.99, MOA

If you haven’t heard of Moa yet, make sure you check it out because it’s Green Balm is a multi-use wonder product. Crammed full of 100% natural ingredients such as tea tree oil, beeswax, coconut, sweet almond and soy bean oils it can literally be used on anything (more or less). It’s great for burns, to cleanse AND moisturise, gargle with it when you have a sore throat, heal cold sores, heal insect bites and ease sunburn.
