Summer essentials

Hayley Fox picks her six essential beauty products that will take you through the summer season.

  1. Essie polish in Capri Bright but not garish, this creamy orange polish ticks the trend box and looks hot on tanned toes. £XX. Book an ESPA Luxury Pedicure for a proper pamper and longer-lasting polish. £45.00
  2. Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant should be worn all year round for maximum protection against premature ageing. It gives skin an SPF30 protection but also contains skin protecting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. £48
  3. Keep the Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer, which has been especially designed for wet hair, in your beach bag for post-swim hair smoothing. It’s great for the kids’ hair too! £10.80
  4. Save parched summer skin with the ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum, which combines the benefits of a facial oil with the kind of anti-ageing ingredients usually found in a serum. It’s great for all skin types and contains Turmeric, White Lupin and Sunflower to help brighten and even skin tone. £48
  5. The clever Invisibobble hair band is my new favourite find. You can tie hair up in a ponytail during the day and let it down in the evening with no kinks or bends in the hair. £3.99
  6. I keep the ESPA 24 Hour Skin Saviour on hand all summer for sunburn, dry patches and cracked lips. The blend of Evening Primrose, Manuka Oil and Shea Butter is really nourishing. I think of it as first aid for summer skin. £33
  7. To tackle cellulite and get smooth, glowing skin all over I incorporate skin brushing into my summer body routine. It’s simple and it really works. Start from the feet and work upwards towards the heart in long, even strokes. £16
  8. Hair tends to dry out in the summer, so I treat myself to the Shu Uemura Essence Absolue, which contains Camellia Oil and really nourishes and protects my hair. £37
