Summer beauty essentials

Step up your summer skincare routine with these celebrity-approved products that will keep you glowing no matter where the season takes you

Skincare woes can quickly sideline your summer fun – and they're not uncommon while you're travelling. Not this time! We've tracked down the best celebrity-approved skincare products that you can add to your arsenal this season. And these are worth the hype! So, prepare to get your summer glow on.

Golden glow

What gives the Princess of Wales her glow? While it's a combination of products, ranging from the humble Nivea Pure & Natural Moisturising Cream to Swiss skincare brand Karin Herzog Vita-A Anti-Ageing Cream, one of her absolute favourites is Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. Known to work miracles on dehydrated skin, this award-winning cream is a great pick for those battling dryness even during summer as it goes beyond moisturisation to give you a lasting glow. $29

Mask up

Among the many products and high-tech tools Jennifer Aniston uses to keep her skin radiant is the humble mask. Sundays are designated at-home spa days for the actress and she loves treating herself to a mini-facial using a scrub, mask and moisturiser. While she loves trying out different masks, one that she buys over and over again is the Goddess Skin Clay Mask by Charlotte Tilbury – the award-winning clay mask that is clinically proven to brighten your complexion after just one use. $58

Fun in the sun

Being the recipient of stellar genes from mom Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber gets to keep her beauty routine very simple. The 21-year-old model, who said that her mom's advice was to always take care of your skin but never overdo it, only relies on a cleanser and sunscreen to maintain her supermodel glow. She swears by SkinCeuticals, and especially loves the brand's tinted sunscreen – the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. There are two additional textures on offer –  the matte mousse and the sheer fluid. $72

Summer spritz

Yet another supermodel-approved pick, Naomi Campbell starts her daily skincare routine with the La Roche-Posay Serozinc Toner. A gentle, yet effective toner, it's perfect for oily and sensitive skin. The power ingredient – zinc – goes a long way in decreasing signs of ageing, combatting sun damage, erasing acne scars and reducing inflammation. Spray a couple of spritzes, let it sit for a few minutes and you're all set. $15

Power-packed formula

Priyanka Chopra calls her nighttime beauty routine "therapeutic" and says that her pre-bedtime wellness rituals centre her. But all it takes is just five minutes with her serums and oils for the star to keep up her glow. The now-cult beauty brand 111Skin is Priyanka's go-to, and the Y Theorem Repair Serum NAC Y2 Serum is always in her bag. Originally developed to aid post-surgical scar healing, the serum's powerful formula fades skin discolouration, visibly reduces wrinkles, repairs stressed skin and protects against sun damage. And a little goes a long way! $350

All about that base

JLo's glowing skin at 53 is everybody's dream and she credits her healthy, active lifestyle and genetics for her luminous complexion. Her very own skincare line, JLo Beauty, is inspired by the beauty lessons she's learnt over the years. But the actress and singer also relies on her arsenal of other brands to keep up that JLo glow. La Mer's Moisturising Cream and the L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Moisturiser SPF 30 are among some of the favourites. But when she's on stage, the secret to staying radiant throughout her performance is the Dior Forever Foundation. Lightweight and luminous, it stays put as she brings her very own JLo brand of energy to the stage. $70
