Whether you like to spend your summer days by the beach, catching up with friends over a BBQ or simply lounging by the pool, you’ll most likely spend quite a bit of time outdoors under the sun. And even though sun safety should always be your top priority all year round, it’s particularly important in the summertime.
From protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, to rejuvenating and hydrating your hair after a day out in the pool, there are many ways you can minimise the impact of the summer heat on your hair and skin. Now is the perfect time to ease into your summer beauty routine to make sure you are ready for everything summer throws at you.
Priceline’s unmissable Pink Friday Sale is on now from Friday 18 November until Tuesday 22 November across the nation. From sunscreens and haircare products for beach days, to fragrances and makeup for festive nights, head in store or online to snag a bargain on all your summer essentials. There are plenty of big savings to be had, including half price on big brand names.
To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of some top summer essentials to help you look and feel your best this holiday season.
Arguably one of the most important skincare products for the summer is a high quality sunscreen that’s breathable and doesn’t clog up all your pores. Consider choosing one with a lightweight formula that quenches your skin and protects it from pollution and the sun– like Neutrogena’s sun hydro-boost water gel SPF. Formulated with hyaluronic acid to boost your skin’s hydration level to keep it supple all day long.
If you’re looking for everyday protection against the sun, try Cancer Council’s Face Day Serum. This hardworking, lightweight face serum addresses hyperpigmentation and redness, keeping your face calm and smooth all with the added benefits of SPF 50 for sun protection. There’s no doubt this multi-tasking serum is a perfect addition to your morning beauty routine.
Post-sun care and maintenance
The warmer weather also makes it the perfect time to swap out your heavy-duty creams for more lightweight skin care products that protect your skin from prolonged exposure to the summer sun while also targeting ageing skin concerns. The Olay x Friends Limited Edition Gift Pack is a great way to incorporate more deep skin hydration into your routine. This pack includes Olay’s Vitamin C Super Serum and Collagen Peptide moisturiser which both work hand-in-hand to even out hydrate and even out your skin tone.
Before bed, wash off the day’s activities with the Q+A Grapefruit Cleansing Balm. This mild, non-irritating cleaning balm melts the day away, without the harshness that may occur from gel-based cleansers. The Q+A Grapefruit Cleansing Balm is naturally high in Vitamin C and packed with antioxidants that can help reduce redness.
Your skincare regime isn’t the only thing you should revisit during the summertime. Just like your skin, long exposure to the sun can dry out your hair– resulting in split ends, breakage and frizziness. This is why now might be a good time to incorporate repairing shampoo and hydrating treatments.
Argan oil is an age-old beauty secret that many people use for scalp and hair health. Packed with fatty acids and powerful antioxidants, the HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo protects your hair from potential heat damage caused by the sun. It is ideal for those whose hair needs more moisture, shine, and elasticity. It’s also free of any nasties like sulphates, parabens, drying alcohols and artificial colours.
Give your hair extra love and care with serums & treatments
If you are looking to bring out the big guns for restoring dry hair, look no further than the Schwarzkopf Extra Care Normal Balance Nourishing Leave in Treatment. This leave in treatment boasts a keratin-enriched formulation to help nourish and maintain your hair’s shine and does not leave behind any weight or slimy residue.
If it’s not dryness you’re dealing with but frizziness instead, say “hello” to beautiful bouncy curls with the Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil Curl Enhancing Smoothie Hair Treatment. Using a hydrating hair mask like this one from Maui helps you lock moisture in your hair so you can have defined curls all summer long.
Makeup for your summer glow
As we get older, a few things happen with our skin that changes the way makeup sits on our face. Luckily, Priceline offers a range of makeup products that cater for mature skin, offering the ultimate summer glow that still celebrates the skin you’re in.
Create that dewy glow with a new collection of goodies. Bring some colour to your cheeks with the Australis Dewy & Daring cream blush, give your skin a radiant and youthful glow with the L’Oreal True Match Serum and perfect your eye look with a Nude by Nature Natural Illusion Eye Palette. Perfect for a natural look when you head out for your next get together.

Some of the favourites that you can score a bargain on are the Calvin Klein CK One, a versatile scent for both men and women, Jimmy Choo which is a strong, sensual and fruity perfume, and Versace Man Eau Fraiche, the perfect scent for the modern man.
