With a mixture of sunny, humid days and cold rainy days, my skin's been feeling quite dry and dehydrated. In summer, I find that my skin battles with sweltering hot days, shaving more frequently and salty beach air. Other than ensuring to drink more water, here are a few products that I like to use to keep my skin, hair and nails hydrated.

Hair: To tame dry tresses and to banish frizzy hair days (humidity = serious Monica Geller hair!) Morrocon Oil Treatment comes to the rescue for me every time. Although the vitamin, protein and omega-3 enriched argan oil treatment can weigh down your hair a little, just a small amount of this conditioning oil worked through the ends of your hair keeps it silky soft and helps to diminish frizz.

Lips: EOS Sweet Mint is a natural, 95% Organic, refreshing lip balm that contains vitamin e, jojoba oil and shea butter to keep lips soft and hydrated. Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate is great for summer as it contains SPF20, it also has shea butter and honey to keep lips smooth and supple.

Nails: A nourishing oil like Essie Nail Treatment Apricot Cuticle oil will keep your cuticles soft and supple thanks to the mixture of hydrating oils. With it's nail polish style bottle, it's so easy to brush on the product and using it frequently helps keep your nails and cuticles strong and in good condition.

Skincare: A lightweight moisturiser like Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturiser gives you a boost of radiance whilst also leaving your skin soft and hydrated. It contains natural and organic ingredients, the gel like texture is great for summer and means that a little really goes a long way.
Throughout the day, a cooling face mist like Caudaile Beauty Elixir helps to keep skin hydrated. It contains orange blossom, organic balm mint, rosemary, grape and rose to smooth the skin and give a burst of radiance.

Bodycare: In summer, rather than reaching for rich, creamy body lotions, I like to use moisturising products in the shower to keep my skin soft and smooth. Soap and Glory Flake away is an incredible body scrub that's full of sweet almond oil, shea butter, polishing sea salt, sugar and peach seed to gently exfoliate and keep skin radiant and unbelievably soft. Lush It's Raining Men is a sweet toffee scented shower gel that contains rosehip and honey to leave your skin feeling silky soft and moisturised. If I do feel like I need to use a body moisturiser, Soap and Glory the Righteous Butter contains aloe vera and shea butter and so is great to apply to your legs after shaving or after a day in the sun.

What are your favourite hydrating products for summer?
