Keep your make-up in place during hot-weather commutes and discover the summer beauty products you need to combat smudged eye make-up and shiny skin

In summer, beauty regimes get a little lighter. Heavier foundations and high-coverage powders sub-in for tinted moisturisers, cream blushers and silky formulas.

We've rounded up the best products to keep you looking cool and fresh when the temperature rises.

Protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays is essential throughout the year but is extra important during summer.

Look out for new product innovations offering further protection from infrared radiation and blue light (which we're exposed to via electronic devices and pollution).

Opt for lightweight and oil free formulas and apply to your face, neck and décolletage

Add extra steps to your skincare routine such as toners and primers.

This establishes a hydrated and smooth skin surface which extends make-up wear.

Toners sweep away excess oil while primers ensure a stronger foundation for make-up.

Apply just to the T-zone if you have drier skin or evenly across the whole face if you have combination or oil-prone skin

Keep some beauty essentials to hand to cool and refresh your complexion throughout the day without disturbing your make-up.

Press a few blotting sheets across your face to absorb excess oil, add instant rehydration with a facial mist and blend concealer across areas needing some extra coverage
