We wait with baited breath each year for the next chance we get to hop on a plane and leave all our stress behind as we sip cocktails on a pillowy cabana on the beach - total bliss. What we fail to remember, though, is that the combination of holiday weather can wreak total beauty havoc and often leaves us burnt, dried up and a little bit frazzled.

However, we’ve decided to put an end to this beauty madness and have teamed up with Blow LTD, the super speedy beauty bar and online store, to bring you an edit of the best holiday hero products that will see you through the sun, sea and salt and keep you looking like a summer’s dream.
