TO HYDRATE

TO PROTECT

Holiday means sunny weather so sun protection is a must! Avoid the harsh chemicals and pore-clogging ingredients that are found in most sun screens. Try one made primarily from natural ingredients, such as Green People’s ‘No Scent Sun Lotion SPF 30’ (£21).

TO COVER 

Improve stretch marks, skin tone and texture before you step into the sunshine with this Remescar Stretch Mark Cream  (£24.95). It’s an easily absorbed, hypoallergenic, odourless and paraben-free cream that uses the same technology as the treatment stick but is specifically formulated to prevent and treat stretch marks.

TO HEAL

The Remescar Silicone scar stick  (£19.95) is an easy to apply stick similar in size to a sun care or deodorant stick that helps to heal old and new scars resulting from burns, insect bites, acne and stretch marks. The stick can be carried anywhere, will last up to three months when applied twice a day and is invisible upon application so can be worn under make up.
