Top 20 skin and hair essentials for summer holidays

It’s that time of year when we spend much of our day sat at our desk planning for our summer getaway.

But along with obsessively visiting Sky Scanner and spending most evenings on Airbnb, there is one important element of planning that is best sorted in advance of your trip; beauty.

While sun, sea and salty air might make for a winning combination when you touch down at your chosen destination, your skin, hair and nails might not be quite so happy.

High temperatures, sea water and the inevitable increase in your alcohol consumption during your summer getaway can all take their toil on your body.

But fear not, we have rounded up the 20 products guaranteed to keep you glowing and gorgeous from sundown to sunset. Now all you need to worry about is where your next pina colada is coming from!
