If you want to stay safe in the sun this summer and get a glowy, goddess-worthy tan while you're at it, these are the only skincare products you're gonna need, no matter whether you're staycationing at home or jetting off somewhere exotic.
These products all travel beautifully, so stock up and get them in your suitcase to help your skin out wherever you end up.

A lightweight moisturiser with added sun protection for the face. Don't let the fact that it's gentle put you off - this just means it's perfect for sensitive skin and won't leave you feeling greasy.

2. Vita Liberata Neroli and Argan spf 50 Milk
