With so much focus on updating your wardrobe for summer, it’s easy to forget that your beauty regime needs a reshuffle too. The latest offerings contain a myriad of skin-rejuvenating, body-illuminating and hair-glossing ingredients to keep you looking gorgeously fresh throughout the season. Here’s our roundup of the best beauty products that will do just that.
This purifying cleanser from Elemental Herbology is packed with summer-friendly skin goodies to tackle congested skin so that you can start fresh on a squeaky clean slate. Tea tree is a great antibacterial agent which works to clear the skin, whilst calming ingredients green tea and chamomile-derived bisabolol work to fight the ageing process. A good all-rounder to wash the day’s impurities away.
Cool and Clear Facial Cleanser
Your makeup will need a shakeup too. In summer, heavy foundations can start to start to make you look less dewy and more sticky. This lightweight skin tint from Liz Earle is perfect for creating a flawless base, and whilst SPF 15 protects your skin from sun damage, vitamin E will work to repair any previous damage.
Sheer Skin Tint SPF 15
Freshen your skin and makeup throughout the day and shield it from pollutants at the same time with this revitalizing facial mist from REN. Manganese amino acids create a barrier to oxidative stress, whilst Sophora japonica flowers help repair the skin by increasing antioxidant capacity.
Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist
Protect your hair from the elements with this ingenious spray from Philip Kingsley. Sprayed onto dry hair, the formula will create lasting volume with a medium hold. Frizz is prevented, shine is induced, and sun protection is provided by the built-in sunscreen.
Restore your locks back to their most lustrous state. Tackling greasy hair and dandruff all at once, this shampoo from Cowshed contains Manuka honey, petitgrain and cinnamon extracts to get your hair ready for the summer. What’s more, the floral fragrance from essential oils such as rose geranium is sure to lift your mood.
Moody Cow Balancing Shampoo
It may not feel entirely necessary to apply a body oil in the heat of summer, but this one from REN is quick-drying and perfect for when you want a radiant sheen. The convenient spray-on elixir has been formulated with Rose Damascena, Moroccan Argan and Arctic Cranberry Seed oils which creates a luxurious scent. Apply to the ends of your hair, too, for an extra glossy finish.

Skin health is also reliant on nourishment from the inside out. With Helena Christensen as their brand ambassador, Lumity’s unique two-step anti-ageing supplements work on even the deepest layers of skin to really boost its radiance and vitality. This is all thanks to an abundance of smart ingredients such as vitamin A, zinc and Coenzyme Q10. The benefits don’t stop there, though, as you’ll notice a difference in the health of your hair, nails, bones, joints and even your immune system.
