Beat the heat with the best beauty buys to protect and perfect this summer…
Sephora Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion, Dhs69, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Center Deira or City Centre Mirdif.
Sephora’s self-tanning range is now available in a variety of different formulas. This everyday lotion with a hint of bronze is great for fairer skin types and is a much safer alternative to baking in the sun.
After Sun Ultra Soothing Gel, Dhs160, Clarins at Areej, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif.
If you’ve enjoyed a day out in the sun, soothe your skin post-rays with this cooling body gel. Slather on after a shower and allow a few minutes to dry.
Sunflower Colour Preserving Depp Recovery Pak, Dhs162, Kiehl’s at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates.
Sun, sea and sand can wreck havoc on tresses, leaving your locks parched and in need of a little TLC. Slather on a thick layer of this antioxidant-rich deep conditioner and let it sink in overnight. You’ll wake up to super-soft and nourished hair. We promise!
Never leave home without a pair of oversized sunnies. Your eyes are the most delicate part of your face and should always be protected against the UAE’s strong rays.
Avoid the sun between midday and 2pm. This is the hottest time of the day and when the UV rays can be most damaging. Instead, take in a few hours early morning or after lunch.
Apply SPF at least half an hour before you hit the beach as it can take this long to get to work and start protecting. Add a new layer every hour, especially after taking a dip.
