Your guide to the ultimate summer beauty prep

The tried-and-tested steps for the ultimate summer natural beauty prep (including when to do them).

A

It's that time of year again. The weather is heating up while our calendars are filling up. Summer is around the corner and while we mentally plan our holiday wardrobe, we're also thinking about that all-important beauty prep.

And hey we think natural is the way to go. Summer beauty prep isn't about transforming the way you look (you look great just the way you are FYI). It's about being your best natural self. It's about using natural products that make you look and feel your best. So whether it's just one step (we see you beauty minimalists) or all of them, this guide is designed to help you naturally glow this summer. Here are our top natural beauty tips (and when to do them).

"A week before I go on holiday I always apply Fushi Really Good Hair Oil as an intensive hair treatment. It's amazing! It deeply conditions and leaves my hair strong and shiny. It really deeply conditions my hair ends and locks moisture in - leaving my hair ready for summer" - Martyna, Graphic Designer

TIP: For maximum results, leave in overnight. Always apply a hair treatment a week before holiday to allow the results time to show.

"I always like to get my skin scrubbed and 'detoxed' as early as possible so that it's smooth and ready for a fresh layer of tan. I love the Susanne Kaufmann Detox Oil Scrub. It's like a spa treatment at home and the sesame oil helps to nourish skin while you scrub off that dead skin." - Erin, Content & Campaign Manager

TIP: Exfoliation is key in advance of applying self tan. This scrub contains green tea which is an ideal antioxidant for prepping summer skin.

"I always make sure to give my feet a proper pamper session before a holiday. It's so easy to overlook them but dry, cracked heels are not a cute look in sandals! I love the Cowshed Pedicure Kit as it has everything you need for soft, perfectly hydrated feet." - Ashley, Community Executive

TIP: Wrap your feet up in a nice pair of socks after you've scrubbed and moisturised to give them an extra boost of softness (this kit comes with a pair specially for this).

"I start applying an all-over body moisturiser a good few days before I go away to give my skin enough time to drink in all that moisture. The Evolve Tropical Blossom Body Butter is my go-to for this. It is lusciously rich and hydrating (and the smell will transport you to a tropical beach - holiday or no holiday!) - Lucy, Purchasing Coordinator

TIP: All-over hydration is key whether or not you plan on applying self tan. Packed full of coconut oil, shea butter and essential fatty acids, this butter will have you falling in love with your summer skin.

"Tanning is definitely the most important step when I prep for a summer holiday. I do it 3 days before to allow enough time for it to develop and settle in. The Eco by Sonya Hempitan Body Tanning Water never fails to provide that perfect summer glow!" - Pat, Brand & Product Coordinator

TIP: Always apply your self tan with a mit and make sure you've exfoliated and moisturised 1-2 days before.

"I love having fresh nails before a holiday, it will guarantee I go away feeling my best. I love the Kure Bazaar polish in JAVA - it's bright and bold and always has me feeling super summery." - Katie, Assistant Buyer

TIP: If you're painting your own nails, we think 2 days before is ideal so you can fix any mishaps once your nails have dried.

"I always put on my favourite face mask the night before I go away, especially when I'm getting on a plane. I find it helps prep my skin but also protect it from that dreaded dry air you get on planes." - Ruby, CRM Manager

TIP: If you're applying a face mask the night before a trip, we recommend picking something hydrating. This Pai Skincare Resurrection Girl Face Mask has lots of hyaluronic acid, perfect for plumping and smoothing skin..
