Protect oily skin from the sun
Those of us with oily skin, or who are prone to breakouts or enlarged pores, will really notice the benefits of choosing a matte sunscreen, such as Dermalogica's Oil Free Matte Block SPF20 (€48.80).
Sensitive souls will appreciate a natural, mineral-based version like Green People's No Scent Sun Lotion (€22.77, from health stores nationwide or www.naturalselection.ie).
Reapply every two hours and after swimming.
Speaking of chlorine, you can protect your hair from its harsh effects by applying a waterproof cream such as Kerastase Soleil's Aqua-Seal (€24.30) before you dive in.
