Five summer holiday beauty essentials

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


Between al-fresco dinners and time on the beach, making the most of a carefree holiday 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!
If ever there was a good time to document life in photos, it’s during a holiday. 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 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.

This is why the Venus Snap is 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.

Stop the brush battle
Sea salt, chlorine and damage from the sun can leave your hair dry and easily knotted, so don’t go on holiday without Pro-V BB Creme.

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.

Essential hair care
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 & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner.

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.

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 Day Fluid Moisturiser With 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.
