The most essential item you should be packing in your beach bag is sunscreen.

Blocking the sun’s harsh rays is the most essential routine of skincare, as it keeps skin looking plump and youthful.

Here are five to try this summer:

It’s very light to wear and makes a great replacement for your usual moisturiser. And you get to smell like coconuts all day.

The cream has been blended with avocado and jojoba oil which not only helps protect your skin from UV, but keeps it well hydrated too.
