Going somewhere warm? Beauty treats for the sun:

Vacation booked?  It is time to start thinking about a winter get-away to bring you back to your senses and let your body breathe in the sunshine and warm air.  Everyone could use a good dose of vitamin d right about now and chasing the winter blues away is a priority.  Prepare your skin with Bamford’s Botanic Sugar Body Polish with its brown sugar, sea salt, and olive, sesame and almond kernel oils.

Prepare to be sunny-side-up with La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios  Sunscreen in SPF 50 for broad-spectrum coverage.  Newly exfoliated skin is extra-sensitive to the sun so don’t forget to reapply. Scorched skin and funky tan lines are not a good fashion statement in anyone’s books.

Celebrity makeup artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury knows a thing or two about supermodels in swimwear and she has created Supermodel Body Cream to make limbs glow and appear firmer.  If it works for the glamazons on the runway then it is bound to make the rest of us look a little more radiant pool-side.

Extend your glow all the way to your hair with Oribe’s Gold Lust Nourishing Oil  formulated with jasmine, lychee, sandalwood, cassis, bergamot, and edelweiss flower, which can be applied to wet or dry hair.  What could be easier and say “winter vacation” better than a sexy wet-hair look?

When the sun goes down maintain your sheen with Soleil Toujours Luxe Après Soleil Exotic Shimmer Body Oil for a lightly bronzed glow, and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to restore your skin.

All products are available online at Net-A-Porter.

SuperGoop! has your sunscreen needs covered:

Don’t even think about going out in summer, anywhere, let alone the beach, without protecting yourself with sunscreen.  The best way to avoid wrinkles, sunspots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and collagen, not to mention skin cancer, is to wear sunscreen and to be intelligent about it.  SuperGoop! is a complete line of sunscreens for city and beach, body and face, to keep you covered wherever you spend your days.

SuperGoop! Antioxidant-infused Broad Spectrum Sunscreen combines anti-inflammatory olive oil polyphenols, pomegranate and green tea extracts in a mineral formula that is hypoallergenic and safe for even the most sensitive skin.  It leaves behind a shine-free, non-oily finish.

SuperGoop! Broad Spectrum spray in SPF 50 for the body contains vitamin C which penetrates the skin to fight free radical damage.  It is formulated with less alcohol so it doesn’t rob your skin of hydration.  If you prefer a body cream to a spray, try SuperGoop! Day Cream, SPF 50, which penetrates the skin easily.  Both formulas have a non-oily finish so they won’t stain your clothes. No excuses!

Don’t forget the baby-soft skin of your lips which burn and show signs of sun damage much more quickly.  SuperGoop! AcaiFusion SPF 30 Lip Balm in sheer pink is the perfect choice for city or beach, giving a little hint of pink, while packing a serious dose of sun protection.   Keep one in every handbag for summer so you won’t be staring down sunspots along your lip line come fall.
