Packing for your summer holiday is a challenge – especially when it comes beauty.

Shop holiday beauty heroes for Summer 2017 at Selfridges & Co.
For Waging War On Cellulite // Searching for an anti-cellulite cream that will smooth and lift dimpled skin in the run-up to your beach holiday? Step forward Clarins Body Fit.
For The Perfect Summer Scent // Now is the ideal time to ditch that woody, spicy scent for a lighter, fruitier fragrance, and The Fragrance Kitchen’s Bindi Twist is one of the best.
For The Best Faux Tan // With a silky-soft feel, zero color transfer and a natural finish, you will love this new clear self-tanner from Tan-Luxe. It’s quick drying so you can apply it in the morning, then head to the beach and the color will develop over 4-6 hours without any tell-tale smell or prints.
For The Ultimate In-Flight Hydration // There’s now an entire range of translucent face masks that are a whole lot more discreet than paper sheets or cream formulas, like this Dr Sebagh’s Rose de Vie hydrating mask, which leaves skin soft, moisturised and radiant, even after a long-haul flight.
For The Safest (Real) Tan Possible // Dr Dennis Dark Spot Sun Defence SPF 50. It gives the highest possible protection against UVA and UVB rays, and its unique, skin-repairing formula also helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone at the same time.
For The Perfect Beach Selfie Complexion // La Mer Reparative Skin Tint SPF 30 acts like a sunscreen, plus it’s tinted, offering a dewy, luminous glow that hides many an imperfection without a heavy layer of make-up.
For Prolonging That Holiday Glow // Lancaster’s does-it-all Tan Maximizer helps to minimise the post-burn peeling and boasts exclusive technology that intensifies melanin production to prolong your tan.
For Soft Post-Sun Skin // To keep that dewy, sun-kissed glow and avoid dryness, Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian 4Play body wash will be your new best friend.
For The Ultimate Holiday Lashes // Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is a genuinely great mascara. The collagen-fuelled formula gives a va-va-voom volume to lashes, while the large hourglass-shaped wand helps to separate and curl your lashes with every swipe.
For All The Make-Up You Need // Armed with a bronzer, blusher, highlighter and three shimmering eyeshadow shades, Charlotte Tilbury’s new does-it-all palette will take the pain out of packing.
