2. The best aftersun: KinKind

Skin needs extra moisture after being exposed to the sun, especially if the SPF fails. Luckily KinKind have released their new SOOTHE ME Aloe Vera Aftersun Lotion bar to help soothe and nourish skin.

Packed with super ingredients like shea butter and cocoa butter to lock in moisture, and of course, soothing aloe vera to help calm the skin.

To apply, warm the bar in your hands until slightly melted, stroke the bar on the body and massage into the skin.

Best used after a bath or a shower, the lotion bar is an easily portable and plastic-free body moisturiser, making it an essential this summer.

4. Best for fresh armpits - nuud

Summer heat does often mean sweat, but getting through a lot of deodorant often means creating a lot of waste. Not with nuud.

Their easily portable deodorant tubes do more than just reduce waste with their bioplastic packaging, but also reduce the amount of deodorant you need to buy.

nuud’s vegan formula is super concentrated, so a pea-sized amount does plenty without clogging pores, delivering an average of three days of fresh armpits.

Despite being a cream-based deodorant, nuud doesn’t leave any white stains on clothes, and has the bare minimum ingredients to reduce irritation.

It’s formulated without parabens, aluminium, salts, or cheap perfume, meaning it’s less likely to irritate skin.

Nuud is clearly a great option for all armpits this summer.

From £12.95. View on nuud
