Five Summer Beauty Staples

Over the past week the UK has encountered some sweltering heat and we’ve all been losing our minds at the concept of not having to wear a jacket when we leave the house. Temperatures have reached 33 degrees Celsius (91.4 fahrenheit) and we were all as unprepared as ever, rushing to the nearest store to buy a fan we won’t use again ’til next year!

The soaring temperature inspired me to share my five summer beauty staples with you lovely people so wherever you are in the world you can look and feel great this summer 🙂

Dry Shampoo

For days when it’s just too damn hot to shower or your hair has got greasy from the humidity and your sweaty neck, dry shampoo is a life savour to soak up all the oils in your hair and give you back some volume. My favourite dry shampoo is the Colab dry shampoo which is £3.49!

Glow Enhancing Moisturiser

Summer is the perfect time to look like a beautiful glowing goddess so why not swap our your usual moisturiser for a glow enhancing formula? Pair this with a glowy foundation and you’re good to go! My favourite dewy moisturiser is The Body Shop Glow Boosting Moisturiser.

Natural Highlight

I prefer a more subtle natural looking highlight in the summer rather than a metallic blinding highlight so my favourite product for this is The Body Shop Brush On Radiance highlighting pearls. This leave a beautiful golden glow behind that looks like the natural glow your skin would give off in the sun, perfect!

Body Mists

Don’t waste your expensive perfumes that will fade when you get in the pool, there are plenty of body mists on the market that are a fraction of the price and come in a variety of fruity scents perfect for summer! I’m currently alternating between the So… Vanilla Body Mist and The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist.


I’m not a big fan of spray deodorants and am picky on deodorant scents so I generally steer towards fresh, citrus scents which is why the Mitchum Advanced Control Pure Fresh deodorant in the lemon scent in my go-to summer deodorant!

What is your summer go-to product? 🙂
