Sun and style.

If you’re spending Eid Al Fitr holidays in Dubai, or some other sunny state, having your beach bag in order is key flawless tan and a fresh complexion.

The Kit

Don’t even attempt walking outside without some sort of sun protection, be it a statement hat like this velvet number from Gucci or a pair of sunglasses like the latest retro-inspired shades from Chloe.

Pack everything up in this summer’s must-have straw bag – Loewe is our top pick as it’s been woven by hand in Madrid from raffia making it very durable.

The Beauty


We have been a little obsessed with Hair Ritual range from Sisley-Paris and the The Hair Protective Fluid is it’s latest launch. The spray on product forms a protective film that shields the hair from the harmful effects of the sun, sea and swimming pool water.

Face mists might seem like an unnecessary purchase, but that’s because you haven’t tried Dior Hydra Life Sorbet water mist. It is infused with a prebiotic that helps simultaneously hydrate and rebalance the skin, plus it smells amazing.

Dolce & Gabbana launched its annual limited edition for the 2019 season Light Blue Sun which is just as bright as the previous instalments but this time the brand added coconut water accord which gives it a rounder and warmer feel.

Wearing SPF every day on the face is a no-brainer, but many of us neglect the rest of our body. If before you were put off by the sticky texture of some suncreams, Sisley-Paris Body Sun Care is ideal as the cream instantly absorbs into the skin and protects against the sun and photo-aging due to a combination of cutting-edge UVA and UVB filters and ultra-advanced protective active ingredients.

Life’s a beach.
