TREAT YOUR BODY WITH OLVERUM

Olverum

Hot and dry summer air can cause dry skin. One way to tackle this is to incorporate a nourishing body oil into your daily body care routine. The Dry Body Oil from Olverum is a lightweight, fast-absorbing dry oil that protects the skin, and even your hair, from dryness and heat damage. When used daily, your skin is left firm, smooth and supple.

How to use this summer body care hero:

  • Apply it to damp, cleansed skin
  • Lightly massage onto skin, paying extra attention to the drier parts of your body like your knees and elbows
  • You can also apply it sparingly to your hair to add shine and tame frizz

What the LiB Beauty Team has to say:

It’s everything you could ever want in a body oil for the hot, summer months: lightweight, non-greasy and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

GET FIRMER ARMS WITH PRAI BEAUTY

PRAI Beauty

Get ready to go sleeveless this summer! If you’re searching for an arm-sculpting cream, then look no further. PRAI Beauty’s Ageless Upper Arm Crème is formulated with a unique caffeine-infused complex that helps to visibly firm and tone the upper arms. Besides firming the skin, it also locks in moisture and helps your skin feel energised. Give it time and with daily use, you’ll be able to see the difference in your skin.

How to use this summer body care hero:

  • Gently massage onto your upper arms using circular motions
  • For best results, use twice a day

What the LiB Beauty Team has to say:

This innovative arm cream will be your go-to this summer, especially if you’re looking for a product that effectively tones and improves the elasticity of your skin.

SMELL FRESH WITH ESCENTRIC MOLECULES

Escentric Molecules

If you’re searching for a warm, fresh and aromatic scent, then you’ll be reaching for this fragrance. Get ready to bask in Molecule 01 + Mandarin from Escentric Molecules all summer. This unisex fragrance features Iso E Super, which is an abstract synthetic molecule characterised as a cedarwood note with a warm, velvety cocooning sensation.

How to use this summer fragrance hero:

  • Spray it onto your pulse points including your wrists, the inside of your elbows and on your neck

What the LiB Beauty Team has to say:

Still searching for the perfect summer scent? This is it.

SHIELD YOUR HAIR WITH BUMBLE AND BUMBLE

Bumble and Bumble

Your skin needs daily protection from the sun, and so does your hair. Shielding your hair from the sun’s rays is important to help you maintain healthy and shiny hair. Use a product like Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer to protect your hair. This heat and UV protective primer also conditions dry, brittle hair and makes styling a breeze.

How to use this summer hair care hero:

  • Apply to damp hair
  • Gently comb through your hair and style accordingly
  • On day two, apply it to dry hair to refresh or re-style your tresses

What the LiB Beauty Team has to say:

There’s a reason why this is a cult product. It works! It’s also perfect for nourishing dry hair without weighing it down.

GET A SUNKISSED GLOW WITH ST. TROPEZ

St Tropez

To help you achieve and maintain a natural, sunkissed glow for the summer months ahead, St. Tropez can get you there. Their Gradual Tan Classic Lotion is an ultra-hydrating lotion that helps you create the perfect tan. It’s easy to apply, thanks to its quick-drying, streak-free and non-sticky formula.

How to use this summer skincare hero:

  • Prep your skin by exfoliating and moisturising dry areas
  • Apply to clean, dry skin using an upward circular motion
  • Blend the product onto your hairline and make sure to cover your ears
  • A subtle, sunkissed glow will develop over 4-8 hours. You can re-apply daily to build the depth of glow

What the LiB Beauty Team has to say:

We love a tanning lotion that gives us our daily dose of glow that also keeps our skin moisturised for summer.
