If you’ve turned into a vampire during quarantine, your skin could use some of the sun’s most nourishing benefits. However, it’s easy to overdo it and come back a boiled lobster rather than a golden goddess. With restrictions lifted and residential pools and community beaches reopened, you’ll be eager to get sun-soaked, but extra caution is needed this summer.

These beneficial products, which do everything from protecting your skin to hydrating on the go, have been meticulously selected by our team. Don’t sunbathe without them.

The Hair Hero

Get beach-beautiful locks with Nuxe’s ‘Moisturising Protective Milky Oil for Hair’, which essentially covers all the bases. Containing a combination of three sunscreens and rice-protein extract, it protects the hair and scalp from the harmful effects of the sun and seawater without drying it out. Enriched with coconut oil, it helps repair the hair fiber and nourishes locks from the inside out thanks to Kau Pe flowers. Both alcohol-free and water-resistant, it smells like a tropical holiday in a bottle, which we love. Simply spray before you step into the sun, and your locks will feel loved all day long.

The SPF

Normal sunscreens contain oxybenzone, which leach into the water and are absorbed by coral reefs, which is really harmful to them. Now you can protect your skin from harmful rays and save the environment. Ixora’s new certified-organic sunscreen is oxybenzone-free. Its rich formulation is also completely absorbent, making it ideal for every skin tone because it doesn’t leave behind a chalky, streaky residue.

Helping to prepare skin before sun exposure, they also deepen and extend your natural tan thanks to their “melanin activator complex”. They also prevent peeling and leave skin silky soft thanks to nourishing ingredients such as raspberry extract and aloe vera. Simply mix a few drops into your face cream or body lotion, and let it work its magic.
