No summer is complete without summer beauty must-haves
Bare, sun-kissed skin is meant to glow, highlighted only with bronzer, embellished only with flashes of colour, covered only with SPF. We can all see and feel the effects of summer - sweaty skin, frizzy hair and a high risk of sun damage and breakouts! Along with summer’s leg-baring skirts and pedicure flaunting sandals, our top summer beauty picks will help you to combat summer temperatures, shield against UV and stay hydrated. From protecting your skin from the sun, creating a natural faux glow to staying hydrated on the beach or at the gym.

Ethically and sustainably made This Is Loveland uses fabric crafted from a regenerated nylon that is made from abandoned fishing nets pulled from the oceans and nylon waste destined for landfill.
