Planning your summer holiday can be either exciting or stressful, and most of the time you can't help but forget something important.

We all make the mad dash over to Penneys and Boots mere hours before the flight to try and grab everything for the suitcase, but it's a futile effort. We wanted to treat ourselves on this holiday, but we need a list of recommended beauty items.

This year is different, because we've got the ultimate make-up and skincare list for your trip abroad this year, and you absolutely need to experience them all. They're flawless.

KISS have released a special line of imPRESS nails, for superior, lasting shine with an indestructible top coat rivalling even the best salon gel polish.

imPRESS nails protect the nail and last up to a week, making them perfect for the coming summer months and festival season. Two new designs have been added to the range, and we've never felt more glamorous.

3. Misslyn 'Beach Please!' Bronzing and Contouring Powder

The heatwave beauty look is oh so easy to achieve with this treat in your suitcase. Misslyn's 'Beach Please!' bronzing and contouring powder will give your skin that glow it's always wanted.

Healthy, sun-kissed skin can be achieved easily with this beautiful, soft-matte texture. We especially love the compact mirror, which makes this the perfect on-the-go top up for your holiday.

Buy: Penneys stores nationwide and select pharmacies
Price: €6.95

4. Payot Peeling Oxygénant Dépolluant

Exfoliating your face is so important for getting rid of all those pesky dead skin cells which haven't naturally shed themselves. When this happens, the leftover dead skin cells can cause dry, flaky patches and clogged pores, which is why exfoliating this summer is imperative for healthy skin.

Payot's crackling foam new skin effect suits every skin type, especially those leaning towards coarseness, and leaves your skin feeling totally brand new. The mask uses triple action- oxygenating, detoxifying, and neutralising pollution- in order to inject new vitality into your skin.

The pink gel will transform into foam which evaporates on the skin, removing impurities and pollution so your natural radiance emerges.

Buy: Payot
Price: €38

 

5. Delarom Orange Sugar Body Scrub

What is the perfect product that can help us to keep our glowing summer tans fresh this season? Delarom has the answer.

Their Orange Sugar body scrub contains sweet orange essential oil to gently eliminate dead cells from your body, so you get the most evenly spread tan as possible.

The sugar melts when massaged into the skin, leaving it soft, supple and deliciously scented.

Buy: Delarom
Price: €35

6. Clinique Sun and Body Care Cream SPF 40

Clinique uses 'SolarSmart' technology to stabilise high-level protection against the ageing and burning effects of UVB and UVA rays, but remains suitable for sensitive skin (anyone from Ireland).

We adore their Sun and Body Care Cream, which is oil-free and dermatologist tested as well as water AND sweat-resistant.

Slay queens, without sunburn…

Buy: Clinique
Price: €21.95

7. Misslyn's Colour Crush lipstick

Statement lips are all the rage for the summer, and red is the perfect colour to make your lips look irresistible.

Misslyn have a new collection of 22 shades, with beautiful creamy texture and rich tones for your make-up bag.

We're loving the unique colours chosen by Misslyn for your summer holidays, you won't be able to pick just one lipstick. They're all too beautiful for your make-up bag to miss this summer.

We can't get enough of Inglot's latest pure pigment eyeshadow collection. With over 30 shades to choose from, the make-up company are allowing you to have the most sparkly eyes in town this summer for a great price.

The pigment is so easy to spread over your eyelids, and can be used as a highlighting powder for your cheekbones, Cupid's bow and as glitter for your lips as well.

With a product this affordable and this versatile, with that many colour options, you've got to make sure it's packed in that case of yours this year. Your holiday won't be the same without it.

9. L'Occitane Delicious Lip Scrub

10.  DAFNI Allure hair tool 

When you're on your holidays, it can be tricky to keep your hair as styled as you like it. With sun and sea comes frizz and knotting, but the DAFNI Allure straightening brush is one of the best products around for treating your hair kindly on-the-go.

Pop it in your suitcase or handbag for your travels, and you can make sure you won't be spending all of your trip trying to blow try and then straighten your hair, wasting valuable moments.

Instead, take a few minutes with the styling tool to brush your locks and they'll be straightened and looking glossy in no time, no matter the weather.

Buy: Peter Mark
Price: €159

Enjoy your holibops, gals, and don't forget to treat yourselves. It's self-care, not vanity. (The Fab Five from Queer Eye came up with that line, we can't take credit…)

Remember: Packing doesn't have to be a tense experience, filled with expletives and forgotten essentials.

These days (and particularly with the bout of fantastic weather we've been having), we're all conscious of protecting our skin in the sunshine.

Skin cancer is the highest form of cancer in Ireland, so it goes without saying, that delicate Irish skin (skin that burns in the sun, freckles and is pale in colour) needs protection in the form of the right sun cream.

Though of course, there are, as we know, benefits that we all get from exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays help the body produce vitamin D and natural vitamin C is always a great thing, but too much exposure means an increased risk of developing skin cancer.

Actress Nicole Kidman is one public figure that has translucent skin very similar to our own alabaster hue, but being that she's Australian, she says she's always been aware of the need to protect skin if you're going to be outside enjoying sun, sea and sand for prolonged periods.    

 

A post shared by Nicole Kidman (@nicolekidman) on

"We’re beach people. We love swimming in the ocean. We also love camping, and we may go glamping,” Kidman told People, referring to her family of four, husband Keith Urban and daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.

But as well as being an ambassador for Neutrogena and advocating for sun safety in her own personal day-to-day life, she says their another key reason she now warns and urges her own kids to make use of that sun cream

 

A post shared by Nicole Kidman (@nicolekidman) on

She explains that long before the higher SPF's came on the market when she was very young – and in Australia, you can get protection of up to SPF 100 – she couldn't be as active outdoors as she would have liked, for fear her skin would get damaged.  

"I’m passionate about it because for a lot of my childhood I couldn’t be as outdoorsy or sporty as I would have liked,” Kidman continued.

“Raising two little girls, I want them to be active, yet I want to be a responsible mother and protect their skin so they thank me when they’re older.”

"For me, growing up sunscreens had not been revolutionized in the sense that you wore thick white zinc cream to protect yourself. But now there’s sheer zinc that’s not sticky when you put it on. Now that there are products that let you do the things you want to do, anything is possible," she added.

While people have always used tattoos and paints as creative body art, the new method that people are using to design their skin is incredibly dangerous.

Most of us are acutely aware of just how bad high levels of sun exposure are for your health. We are forever being warned of the dangers and health risks that exposing ourselves to the sun without protection can cause.

But the latest worrying Instagram trend is seeing people purposely burning their skin in order to create a temporary tattoo.

Really?

A scary number of the social media site’s users have put pieces of cloth, stickers and tape to their skin and let their bodies burn so that when they remove the material, there will be the desired shape left on their skin.

Unprotected exposure to the sun can lead to skin cancer, ageing of the skin and other harmful side effects.

But alas, that is what people are willing to risk for a three-day tattoo.

Ok – we’re coming clean. We have, on occasion, stepped out without sun cream. But never again!

Watch as these people look into the camera while an ultra-violet light shines on their faces, showing the not-yet-visible effects the sun is having on their skin.

Now, where did we leave that factor 50?

The sun has been shining a lot recently in Ireland and we are all loving it. As much as we all love to get a tan, we need to remember to apply sun cream regularly because the sun can be very damaging to our skin and health.

To help you save on Sun care this summer, Boots are offering half price Soltan 5* UVA sun protection products from 19th March – 2nd September*, helping you to enjoy the sun safely for less.

We caught up with Boots Sun care Expert, Clare O’Connor to get the full low down on how to protect our skin and still look gorgeous.
