We all know the damage that sun exposure can cause but we can minimise the effects by using a good sun cream with a high SPF. You do not have to pay a lot for a really good quality suncream with a 5 star UVA rating. Aldi do a great suncream at a price thats right, I used it in Corfu and Turkey and didn't burn at all. It comes in a variety of SPF`s and also has a kids version too. At £1.99 you can afford to stock up.
New for 2015 Boots No7 suncream with a built in BB cream, genius! This is great for the first few days when your tan may be a bit uneven. It also comes in SPF 30 and SPF50

HaircareThose of you who follow me on instagram know that on holiday I turn into a giant frizz bomb. I end up tying my hair back for two weeks and grin and bear it. Not any more....... I discovered this little beauty and I was able to wear my hair down and straight...yippee

Make upI like to keep it simple on holiday so I pack a few essential items for a glamorous but simple look.
My go to foundation is Clinique CC cream, its light enough to wear in hot temperatures and you can get samples from Clinique in a darker shade than your normal colour.

For eyes I keep it simple with Maybelline EyeStudio Colour Tattoo, this stuff does not budge, even in 45 degree heat!

For lips I prefer a wash of colour so my favourite is Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm, they hydrate and add just a hint of colour.

SkincareAfter a day sunbathing you need to make sure you have thoroughly cleansed hydrated skin so I use Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove suncream and any surface dirt. Boots do a 125ml travel size. Its also great for removing make up after a night on the town.

I then follow with a rich cleanser such as Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

To finish I use Paula's Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Serum
