2. No stress smooth skin

Floating in a pool or lounging lakeside is blissful, but you might feel the need for smooth legs at all times. If you do decide on the hair removal route, then it can be time consuming.

This is when the Venus Snap becomes an essential travel buddy. This portable razor is perfect for keeping on top of your stubble thanks to its 5-blade Embrace technology, leaving you with silky-smooth legs no matter where you are in the world.

Sea salt, chlorine and damage from the sun can leave your hair dry and easily knotted, so don't go on holiday without Pantene BB Crème Youth Protect 7 For Ageing Hair.

This handy hair perfector detangles and improves shine, smoothness, nourishment and hydration. Simply apply to dry or damp hair, starting at the ends and working your way up, gently combing as you go.

4. Easy care for hair

A heatwave can leave your hair feeling thirsty and your scalp dry and flaky, so give it a much-needed dose of moisture with Head and Shoulders Smooth & Silky Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner. Or if you’re really tight for space, pack Head and Shoulders Smooth & Silky 2-in-1 Anti-Dandruff Shampoo.

The rich formula adds silky-smooth shine to dry, damaged and frizzy hair, all while fighting the main causes of dandruff, leaving hair clean, soft and flake free.

5. Simplify your summer skincare

There’s no need to cart your entire dressing table with you on your holidays. 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 Lightweight 3in1 Moisturiser Day Fluid SPF15 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 Pro V B5, giving you glowing skin from early morning yoga on the beach to cocktails at dusk.
