Late nights under the stars and all-weather weekends … let’s face it, a summer spent in the UK’s great outdoors does little for your beauty regime. Whether your glamping in style or basking on the beach, ensure you look your natural best with hard-working essentials that revitalise from head to toe.
Embrace nature with Heaven Skincare’s innovative Nettle Venom Anti-Ageing Cream, £64 – it’s 100% vegan yet still offers potent anti-ageing properties. Containing the ground-breaking NETTATOXIN® the nettle sting makes the skin tingle before your own serotonin gets to work to heal blemishes and redness. With regular use, the skin continues this healing action, smoothing lines as it does so.
You may not be enjoying the South American sun this summer, but you can still carry a bit of Brazil with you!
