It’s always nice to arrive on holiday looking groomed and glowing before you’ve even stepped foot on the beach. There are a few failsafe treatments I swear by to get holiday ready every summer before I arrive, as well as some essential holiday products that are must haves for any prep regime or beach bag…


A natural looking spray tan to give you an undetectable summer glow before your holiday can make a big difference. I love Perfect 10‘s fuss free home treatment service because it means you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home! Perfect 10 offer Sienna X Tan which comes in a range of shades to suit your skintone – plus it’s also paraben free and contains ingredients to nourish the skin and leave it soft and smooth.

You can also combine your home tan with any of Perfect 10‘s other treatments, including manicure, pedicure, waxing, eyelash tinting and massage to name a few.


  1. Before I go away, I like to use a great body scrub to remove any dead skin and prep the body so that my tan looks better and lasts longer. I love Tata Harper’s Smoothing Body Scrub – it’s 100% natural and non toxic so it’s a kinder way to prime the skin
  2. Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – also formulated without synthetic colours and parabens – contains guaraná, cupuaçu butter, açaí and coconut oil which is the perfect mix to leave skin tight, smooth and glowing like a true Brazilian
  3. Don’t forget to prime your hair as well as your body. I love Eprouvage’s Replenishing Leave in Conditioner – it works to strengthen, thicken and rebuild hair using progressive plant cell technology and antioxidant ingredients

A great beach bag like this one from India Hicks and a good pair of sunglasses such as Victoria Beckham Aviators are two of my staple holiday accessories
