Don’t let that post-summer healthy glow fade away with the tan, Newby Hands shows you how.
It doesn’t really get any better than this; relaxed, tanned and de-stressed with that post-holiday glow (mentally and physically) who doesn’t want to keep that feel good feeling going just a little bit longer? So before we pack away the beach clothes and empty out that last bit of sand from the suitcase, here is our guide to one last beauty blast for summer.
Like a warm afternoon breeze fragrant with the heady scent of herbs and flowers, Annick Goutal’s Eau de Sud is a long hot summer in the Med in a bottle.
Keep the glow going with a gradual tanner, like Sienna X Gradual Glowing Self Tan .Mixing body lotion with self-tan leaves post-sun skin moisturised and your colour seamlessly topped up.
The Beach Hair
For that super sexy tousled surf hair use texturising TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray on the lengths of damp hair before blow drying – or spritz through dry hair before scrunching it up. Alternatively dry shampoo adds instant volume and texture to flat, freshly washed hair – try Fudge Dry Shampoo .
Choose a matte, shimmer free colour for the truest ‘tan’ – Benefit Hoola is always great – and finish with a dab of pinky red blusher (I love Dior’s Rose Dragee 829 ) over the apples of the cheeks and bridge of the nose for that ‘just-caught-the-sun’ look.
The Lip Gloss
Tanned skin and glossy lips are a summer essential and Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes are our non-sticky, glossy lip favourites.
The Body Oil
Nothing says summer more than gleaming skin, so leave the body lotions for when it gets colder and get skin sheeny and gorgeous with Nuxe Dry Oil Golden Shimmer , or Carita’s Ultra Nourishing Dry Oil .
The Buffed Nails
Unvarnished and naturally healthy buffed nails (for toes and hands) are this summer’s hot trend so keep the look going with Leighton Denny’s Totally Groomed Kit – massage in a little bit of oil before the final buffing for super luxe looking nails.
