Sun care and luscious lips for summer

Summer is all about sun-kissed skin with an all-natural glow, achieved by basking in glorious vitamin D-rich rays.


Achieving an effortless summer look requires, in actuality, a lot of effort and a carefully curated artillery of beauty products: a lightweight sunscreen with at least SPF 30; a colour-correcting primer to achieve flawless-looking skin, and balms and glosses for well-moisturised, sculpted lips glazed in brilliant hues. These four products are sure to create that summer skin perfection.

Clinique Sweet Pots

With their macaron-inspired packaging, these pots comprise a Sugar Scrub made of beet sugar granules and jojoba seeds that gently exfoliates the lips, and a luscious Lip Balm. There are three lightly tinted hues to choose from: Red Velvet, Orange Blossom, and Pink Framboise.


Bobbi Brown CC Cream

Acting as a perfect base or primer, Bobbi Brown’s CC cream offers a flawless and glowing finish to the skin in three steps. Colour-correcting pigments diminish redness and dullness; SPF 35 offers UVA/UVB protection, and light diffusers add brilliance to the skin tone. Available in five shades, this CC cream is ideal under foundation.


Elemis Liquid Layer Sunblock SPF 30

The challenge to finding a perfect sunblock for the summer is finding something that retains its SPF throughout the day or in water, and doesn’t get absorbed into the skin causing clogged pores. Elemis Liquid Layer sits on top of the skin to create a UVA/UVB barrier with titanium dioxide mineral protection. This non-sticky formula, comprising jojoba and other natural oils, glides on to leave a weightless layer.


Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss and Lacquer

Worn over lipstick or alone, this non-sticky formula is designed to capture and retain hydration as it adds a buildable colour tint whilst magnifying and sculpting lips. Although it’s available in 10 vibrant shades, Tempting Melon and Jealous Blush are particularly enviable for summer.
