1. Body Hair

It’s not a myth that our body hair grows faster during the summer. UV exposure and a healthier diet can increase growth by up to ten percent.

Yes we’re talking millimetres rather than inches, but when your slinky summer wardrobe calls for a silky bare leg more than two days in a row, it can leave you feeling a little self-conscious.

Jolen Creme Bleach lightens hair helping minor stubble slip under the radar between salon visits. Plus, apply it to your eyebrows and your complexion will appear instantly sun-kissed without the harmful rays.

Your new summer sandals can’t wear themselves, so free up 15 minutes and reach for the Pedi Egg Power Roller.

This nifty tool lops off callus skin revealing baby soft soles in just a few strokes.

3. Sunburn

The quickest route to wrinkled ‘tough as old boots’ skin? Sunburn. Do your future self a favour and slather on Banana Boat Aloe Vera Gel shortly after coming in from the sun.

Its anti-inflammatory properties will reverse redness whilst easing that all too familiar burning sensation after the first application.

4. Gloopy SPF

Putting on suncream is no longer comparable to smothering yourself in thick double cream. The latest high-tech formulas mist over limbs in a matter of seconds.

Lancaster Sun Beauty contains UVA/UVB and infrared technology to filter out the nasties without sacrificing your much longed for summer glow.

5. Botched Highlights

It’s no secret that UV and chlorine strip expensive colour but there’s a simple way to avoid dull, dry and tatty tresses.

Coat your hair in  TIGI Ego Boost Leave-In Conditioner before you jump in the pool. It swells your hair follicles to prevent them from absorbing any water.

6. Air-Con Battered Skin

Whether it’s on the plane, in the office or from simply wandering in and out of shops on a Saturday, there’s no escaping air-con come summer.

Soothe that tight, dried out, I-can’t-move-my-face-anymore feeling by smothering your complexion in  Clinique Moisture Surge Intense before bed.

Skin cells regenerate faster overnight so the ingredients stand a better chance of sinking in. Try it in the morning and you’ll be the oiliest you’ve ever been.

7. Unflattering Flush

If the heat leaves you looking more hot and bothered than sexy sun goddess, spritz yourself with  Insta Cool Hot-Weather Cooling Spray at regular intervals throughout the day to rebalance your temperature.

Failing that suck on an ice cube for a few seconds, or place a cold water bottle at the back of your neck. It will stimulate your body to constrict blood vessels, which also calms high colour.

8. Tan Lines

The healthiest tan is a fake one. Instead of burning the delicate skin around your eyes or returning home with white-ringed panda marks courtesy of your oversized sunnies, mix a teeny tiny drop of  St Tropez Face Bronzing Lotion with your favourite eye cream and fill in the pale patches. 

Trust us, no-one will even notice.

9. Melting Make-Up

Unless you have a schedule that allows multiple touch ups, always apply  Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer before you put on your make-up.

Not only will it smooth out wrinkles, pores and imperfections, it also keeps your base from slipping and sliding.
