Five tips to get that "I haven't really tried but still look amazing" look on the beach this summer;

1. Protect your skin

SPF is SO important. While sunscreen should be a year round commitment, it's even more important if you're hitting the beach. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen 20 minutes before you head outside to allow it time to sink in. We love Soleil Organique Sun Block Mist SPF 45 for the body (it ticks our three must have boxes - natural, in a spray and water resistant) and Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream with SPF30 for the face.

2. Fake it

The night before you hit the beach give yourself a fake tan. Start with an all over body scrub such as SW Basics Scrub, or The Body Deli Green Detox Scrub. Then starting from your toes up, apply fake tan. We love Chocolate Sun Lite which is a lovely chocolate scented moisturiser with just a hint of fake tan for a really natural glow. You'll wake up in the morning with a lovely hint of colour and beach ready skin.

3. Shine On

Add a luminous and healthy glow to skin with a oil we love Marble & Milkweed nourishing body oil. Beauty editor top tip - add the oil down the front of your legs and the top of your arms to lengthen limbs.

4. Lashing of natural beauty

Give your lashes a break, and switch to clear mascara, this will keep lashes glossy and groomed without having to worry about smudgy eyes. Also try a white or nude pencil eyeliner which will really open up your eyes.

5. Tint those lips

For that finishing touch, go for a tinted lip balm. (this will avoid any sand/lip gloss sticky mishaps). We love Marble&Milkweed Organic Rosy Lip Tint.
