5 Beauty Essentials You Need This Summer

For a flawless summer, go back to basics with these insider beauty must-haves.


Between al fresco dinner parties and family holidays, making the most of the carefree summer months relies on no-fuss beauty products that will keep you looking healthy, relaxed and radiant. From your smile to your hair, these beauty essentials are insider secrets that will give you the best foundation for your most confident summer yet...

Say cheese!

Trips to the beach, family vacations – if ever there was a good time to document life in photos, it’s during the summer. And the easiest way to keep your grin as gorgeous and healthy as it can be without much fuss is by switching to an electric toothbrush. The Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush (link to a specific product page) has a dentist-approved, oscillating round head, which removes up to 100% more plaque than a regular toothbrush. It also connects to an app on your smartphone via Bluetooth to give you real-time feedback on your brushing technique. Plus it comes with a handy travel case that charges the toothbrush and your phone using one outlet – that’s one less thing to pack.

Smooth operator

Floating in a pool or lounging lakeside is blissful, but the time-consuming body maintenance that preceeds it? Not so much. Keeping everything smooth can feel like a chore when you’d rather be spending your time enjoying the weather, which is why the Venus Bikini Kit (link to a specific product page) – which has everything you need to prune your bikini area in a hurry – is a summer must-have.. It includes a razor with a protective ribbon of moisture, a special bikini trimmer (better and safer than attempting it with scissors) and a moisturizing lotion to hydrate and soothe the skin.

Days on the beach, sea salt, chlorine and damage from the sun can leave your hair dry and easily knotted. Don’t go on holiday without Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Moisture Mist Detangler (link to a specific product page). This handy spray detangles and smoothes, helping to stop breakages, while giving your parched hair the moisture it needs. It is also a lifesaver if you have little girls who hate having their tangled hair brushed. Gorgeous-looking hair and fewer tantrums? Yes please.

Essential hair care

A heatwave can leave your hair feeling thirsty, so give it a much needed dose of moisture with Head & Shoulders Instant Hydration Shampoo (link to a specific product page). Containing three moistursers for optimal hydration, it’s gentle enough to use daily on color-treated hair, but strong enough to help fight an itchy scalp and keep hair clean, all while helping it look healthy. 

Summer glow

Keep your skincare routine simple by using a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser that won’t block your pores, but that also contains a broad spectrum SPF. We know just the thing: Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer With SPF15 (link to a specific product page) helps prevent sun damage and premature ageing, while providing 48 hours of long-lasting hydration. It also conditions the skin’s surface with antioxidants and vitamins E, B3 and C, giving you glowing skin from early morning meetings to cocktails at dusk.
