The season of sweatiness, muginess and pollen is well and truly upon us. Whether you relish the heat or like to keep close to the air conditioning from June to August, there’s no denying that a sticky summer can wreak havoc with your beauty regime.
From overcrowded tubes, to getting sweaty in the park, summer can really take it out of your skin and leave your make up looking, well, less than flawless. Fortunately, science can now give us the upper hand – and these 5 beauty products are true summer must-haves….
1. Lancôme Hypnôse Star Waterproof Mascara (£22.50)
When the temperature rises, the products you typically use in your beauty regime don’t always hold up. Mascara can be one of the first to go, resulting in sticky, black eyebags. This Lancome mascara is supremely waterproof, holding up in even the stickiest of conditions.
2. Benefit POREfessional Agent Zero Shine Powder (£23.50)
Avoid patchy coverage and shiny skin (without that nasty powdered look) with this beauty from Benefit.
3. Urban Decay De-Slick Make-Up Setting Spray (£21.00)
Don’t let your make-up go anywhere. This handy setting spray will help to keep your face in place even when the pavements are sizzling.
4. Skyn Iceland Face Mist (£25.00)
If you’ve given up on full make-up altogether, this refreshing mist is an absolute lifesaver after horrible commutes and long queues for sandwiches at lunchtime. Simply spritz to feel instantly cooler and fresher.
5. L’Oreal Paris Summer Saviour Nourishing Mask (£5.49)
And let’s not forget about what a little heat, UV, dryness and humidity can do to our hair! Keep your locks frizz free with a weekly intensive treatment with this affordable yet luxurious stuff for summer-long smoothness.
