8 Beach Beauty Essentials
Stay UV safe this summer with our edit of skin- and reef-friendly beauty productsMorgane Nyfeler
While we couldn’t be happier to welcome back summer and all the joyous moments it brings, we’re also keen on swerving long-term UV damage to our skin at all costs. Suncare is an essential step in a summer beauty routine, whether you’re a shade-seeker or a sunshine-follower, and applying SPF several times a day is more important than ever.

However, it’s no small feat to find sunscreens and after-sun lotions that are reassuringly effective minus the gloopy, sticky feeling, while also being devoid of nasty ingredients that damage the environment (and your skin, for that matter). Cue our sweat-free and eco-conscious suncare edit to take you from hotel breakfast to beach bar in effortless ease.

Start by applying Supergoop!’s invisible Unseen Sunscreen as a make-up primer, containing a cocktail of targeted skin care elements that are non-greasy and reef-friendly. Alternatively, add a couple of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Sun Drops SPF 50 to your face cream every morning to simply and responsibly protect your complexion. For barely-there makeup days, bareMinerals’s oil-free Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream provides a light, dewy coverage and mineral-based sun protection with a naturally derived formula. Working to protect your skin while enhancing your tan, the Body Active Sun Lotion SPF30 by Saltee is pumped with skin-friendly ingredients that are responsibly sourced and captured in completely recycled packaging. Not immune to the effect of the sun, our hair also needs summer-ready concoctions to shield and replenish, such as Aveda’s sustainably sourced, plant-powered Hair Veil, which is packed with effective UV filters.

Once your sun-drenched day is over, generously apply the Tropical Bliss Body Silk by Odylique – an organic after-sun with a high concentration of aloe vera to lock in moisture. Using glow-boosting prickly pear, acerola cherry and sea buckthorn, Liz Earle’s Revitalise & Glow Illuminating Gel Moisturiser quenches the skin with powerful, antioxidant-rich botanicals before and after any sun exposure. Use Costa Brazil’s environmentally responsible Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil, featuring an exclusive cold-pressed complex of rare Amazonian ingredients, to further hydrate and unlock your skin’s natural radiance. With these effective, eco-conscious hero items, you’re guaranteed a healthy-looking glow wherever you find yourself this summer.
