If you’ve got coloured or treated hair you really need to take extra care when you are out in the sun.

Dermalogica’s Waterproof Solar Spray SPF 25, ($40)

and Conditioner, ($36.75). These products not only smell divine but they also have UV protectants in them.Want a little help enhancing your tan? Head straight to The Body Shop. They have decided to re-launch their sell-out Brush-on Bronze, $29.95. This classic product will give you that natural-looking glow you have always been looking for.

The bad thing about summer is that people will see the tops of your legs. The good news is that they don’t have to see cellulite. There is a way to keep it at bay, but you have to be diligent. The loofah is the answer-but we mean it when we say to brush everyday. By brushing those cottage-cheese thighs everyday with a dry loofah you will get the blood circulating and definitely notice a decrease in cellulite. We say start brushing now. For loofahs visit Stuf.

Last but by no means least. It’s about the way you smell. You don’t want to be caught at the beach with bad BO do you? In summer, even the most delicately smelling of us need a little extra help. Why not go glamorous with you anti-perspirant? One of our favourites is Clarins new deodorant range, ($30). It softens the skin and the essential oils in the product encourage well-being. The range is for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Available from Myers/Grace Brothers and selected salons and pharmacies. Smell better than anyone else this summer!
