This summer’s top choices from Lookfantastic skincare

Whether you’re jetting off for a fabulous summer holiday somewhere hot and exotic, or you’re hitting the beaches close to home, the Lookfantastic skincare range should be on your radar right now.

Summer can be a tricky time if you want to look your best. Catching a few rays can be fantastic, but it can also dry out your skin, and there’s a real risk of sunburn, especially if there’s a bit of a breeze on the beach too. Luckily for you, we’ve got the lowdown on all the latest and best Lookfantastic skincare products, to keep your skin looking its absolute best all day.

Top picks from the Lookfantastic skincare range

Protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays should be at the top of everyone’s priority list, and the Lookfantastic skincare range has plenty of top brands to choose from when it comes to sun protection. Choose sun protection lotions from Ultrasun, Shiseido, La Roche-Posay, Ambre Solaire and more. There are lotions and creams to suit all skin types, and even those with the fairest and most sensitive skin can feel confident with products like Ultrasun’s SPF50+ Extreme Sun Lotion.

If you want to optimise your tan, to get that deep, all-over bronzed look, check out Imedeen’s Tan Optimizer supplements, or go for an optimising spray from Lancaster, NUXE, Elemis or Gatineau. Lotions like these offer a fast-track route to an incredible, all-over tan that looks natural and feels amazing.

Repair and rejuvenate

No matter how careful we are, the sun’s rays can still have a damaging effect on our skin, leaving it dry, burned and looking tired. Extra care is needed in the summer months, and we all need to ensure that our skin is hydrated at all times and given plenty of moisturising help. For mature skin, try Dermalogica’s Dynamic Skin Recovery, which has an SPF50 rating to provide maximum protection, at the same time as rejuvenating and hydrating your skin. The Cicaplast Baume B5 Repairing Balm, from La Roche-Posay, is well worth carrying with you in your bag, to help soothe any sunburn or problem skin, and Origins’ GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser will leave your skin hydrated, protected and feeling fabulous.

Sensitive skin

Anyone with sensitive skin or a fair complexion needs to take extra special care during the summer months. The Lookfantastic skincare range has that angle covered too, with hypoallergenic and sensitive-skin products from Ambre Solaire, Pai and Institut Esthederm. Kids are catered for too, with a wide choice of child-friendly sun protection products.

With so much on offer in the Lookfantastic skincare range, you can look good and stay protected all summer long!
