Keeping that summer glow

There is nothing that Sarah Barclay, leading beauty editor and columnist doesn’t know about the beauty industry and more importantly there isn’t a product she hasn’t tested! Luckily for us, she’s here to share her secrets…


The leaves might be turning but you’re not ready for socks and cashmere. Keep that summer glow alive and kicking and make the most of our Indian summer!

I love By Terry skincare. It smells delicious and critically, works brilliantly. Give yourself a  moisture boosting facial at home with By Terry Baume de Rose Hydrating Sheet Mask, At Space NK £14

If you want to give your complexion an overhaul after a summer of slacking, try the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Brightening Anti-Pollution Mask. This not only exfoliates and cleanses using pink clay but whacks in the moisture and soothing ingredients using calendula, chamomile and oat extract. £58 At Space NK

I can’t get enough of the divine Guerlain Abeille Royal Bee Glow Youth Moisturiser it gives the skin an instant sensation of generous hydration, yet it is water light and leaves the skin glowing.  £73 at John Lewis

Transform your feet overnight (yes really) with L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream. Quickly absorbed and genuinely effective apply before bed and wake up pleased with different feet. £21.50 l’Occitane.com

If your complexion looks a bit dry and dull after the summer and you want a comforting moisturiser, invest in Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream (there’s a dry skin formula too). It hydrates beautifully but also leaves the skin looking instantly luminous and healthier. £59

This Works Skin Deep Dry Leg Oil is a classic but still leader of the pack. Use this essential oil drenched wonder product to sort dry lacklustre limbs in one application. £42 thisworks.com

Sachajuan Hair Repair This simply packaged  but brilliantly effective Swedish hair brand uses sea algae proteins to restore frizzy and frazzled hair. £13 Cultbeauty.co.uk

⭐️ STAR PRODUCT: after weeks if not months of being bare faced and make-up free maybe a little cheating is in order. Step forward brand new Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Hydration and Longwear which launched on 4th September. Available in 35 shades it delivers a complexion perfecting veil of radiance which is undetectable. £41
