Body Care Essentials For Summer Holidays

Sunscreen: If you could only take one product to the beach, sunscreen would be the ideal choice. Irrespective of whether you're planning to bask by the ocean, lunch on a terrace, or go for a stroll, SPF 30 sunscreen is the bare minimum; and it should be applied regularly.

Shower Oil: You'll need to wash off any sunscreen, dirt, and sand once you return from your outing. Opt for soothing formulas such as moisturising gels, especially those that are oil-enriched with calming active ingredients.

Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner: Even if the beach hair looks sexy, it should still be washed every other day with a mild shampoo and repairing conditioner. In between, all you need to do is rinse your hair with clean water to avoid irritating your scalp.

Gentle Scrub: To keep a glowing, long-lasting tan, give yourself weekly fine-grain scrubs; but avoid scrubbing if you're sunburnt or have peeling skin.

After-sun Lotion: It's important to moisturise your skin, especially after sunbathing. Choose a product that soothes sunburn; your skin will immediately be nourished and feel better.

Satin-finish Oil: You could also apply a satin-finish oil to moisturise your skin and give it a healthy glow. Make sure your oil contains hydrating ingredients to fully soothe and feed skin that's been dehydrated by the sun.

Fake Tan: If sunbathing is not on the agenda or you find yourself looking at overcast skies, you can always cheat with a fake tan! Apply it to your feet and work upwards with a light scrubbing motion.
