Looking and feeling fresh in this Heatwave for under £15


Here in London, we’ve been begging the weather gods to send us some sun, and well clearly it’s paid off because they’ve rewarded us with three scorching days of sun and sweat to look forward too. As much as we’re loving having our summer packed exclusively into less than a week, there is some preparation necessary. Everyone loves to think they swan through the heat like our gals from SATC up above, but really we all end up looking something like this.


In order to save you from melting away in the heat, we’ve put together a few of the essentials necessary for survival in this heatwave.

PHYTO Phytoplage protective sun veil £15 – Selfridges | BOURJOIS BB BRONZING CREAM £9.99 – The Hut

Sunscreen is an obvious must, but have you thought about how the UV is damaging your hair? Phytoplage protective sun veil will give your hair a luminous shine, whilst protecting it with a light SPF. In this heat, makeup is pointless, although it is worth popping on some BB cream. The Bourjois BB cream gets extra points for having giving your skin a natural glow, as if you’ve been in the sun for weeks.
