Summer Rescue!

Finally summer is here and after a few days of blissful enjoyment, we’ve realised the sun brings its own set of challenges for our skincare regime to deal with. But the good news is, there are plenty of tips and tricks out there to help us fight our skincare foes and minimise damage from the summer sun.

We love the great collection of ethically and sustainably produced, naturally inspired products at The Body Shop.  From their light and soap-free Vitamin E Cream Cleanser – perfect as part of your daily cleanse, tone and moisturise routine – to their Aloe Soothing Moisture Lotion with SPF15, to protect your skin from harmful UV rays or to soothe and heal should you catch a few more rays than planned.



Until recently we’ve had tough decisions to make – do we protect our skin with sunscreen?…or do we wear make-up to ensure we feel our usual beautiful self?  Well this should be a decision of the past! It’s time reach for that SPF protection-laced foundation and do both at the same time. From Estée Lauder to Clarins, Clinique, Dior and more, you’re sure to discover one by your coveted cosmetics brand at Debenhams. Estée Lauder’s Double Wear, Stay-in-Place Makeup is defo one of our faves! While Benefit’s Instant Comeback is our secret weapon against tired, dehydrated skin, Clarins’ Sun Wrinkle UVB 50+ Control Cream fights those ray-induced wrinkles and Dior Instant Gentle Exfoliant promotes cellular renewal without any aggression – perfect should you over bake and start to flake.




The emergence of day creams, night creams and serums means we can protect our skin, even while we sleep. The handy little Boots No.7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Travel Kit makes the perfect addition to any suitcase – with everything you need to keep your skin looking youthful and beautifully fresh in the summer sun.



If you feel the need to enhance the gorgeousness that nature blessed you with, a carefully selected bronzer makes the perfect addition to your holiday beauty bag – just a light dusting can make that all-important transformation from a casual daytime look to night time glamour.

Finally: Don’t overlook the lips! From moisturising lipsticks to ultra nourishing glosses to give your lips the lift they need after a day in the summer sun, they’re a must-have for the beauty bag this season.
