Chantecaille’s Just Skin with SPF15, £68

“I love to use a tinted moisturiser, like Chantecaille’s Just Skin with SPF (broad spectrum, of course). This gives you protection, but can also add that sun-kissed look so there is no need for foundation. I’m also a big believer in using a hydrating serum twice a day to make sure hydration levels don’t decrease too much.” – Pamela Marshall, Clinic Aesthetician

PCA Skin’s Weightless Protection, $44

“Without a doubt, SPF is the one product we should all be using in summer, and all year round. The one I couldn’t live without is PCA skin’s weightless protection. It’s an SPF 45 so it’s super high broad-spectrum protection yet the formula is light, elegant, grease-free and no white tinges. An added bonus is it also contains UV absorbing antioxidations to further protect the skin.” – Debbie Thomas, Skincare Expert & Facialist

Quantum Botanika Hydrating Gel, £65

“Summer is a very harsh season for the skin; heat and UV radiant dehydrates the skin and leads to premature photo-ageing. The most important thing for me is to keep hydrated and choose skincare that has a gel-like texture and won’t sit heavy on the skin. My personal favourite is Quantum Botanika Hydrating Gel for it’s easy-to-apply formula.” – Nataliya Robinson, Holistic Facialist

Neostrata Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum, £52.99

“Neostrata Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum is one of my favourite summer products of all time. The hot weather and air conditioning are so drying for our skin, which can cause dullness. But because we are all lathering on the SPF, our skin can easily get overloaded and break out prone too. This serum is so lightweight yet still delivers enough hyaluronic acid into the skin to keep it nourished and resurfaced. Plus it contains gluconolactone which very gently exfoliates without making you sun sensitive like AHAs tend to.” – Dr Sophie Shottter, Award-Winning Doctor & Skincare Expert
