The salts in your per­spi­ra­tion mixed with alu­minium com­pounds in de­odor­ant builds over time and causes stains in the armpits of your shirts or dresses that are es­pe­cially no­tice­able on lighter coloured clothes. And they can smell pretty bad, too. What to do? To pro­tect your cur­rent wardrobe choose a de­odor­ant that con­tains alu­minium far down the in­gre­di­ent list, less alu­minium equals less stain­ing. To re­ju­ve­nate older clothes spritz the area with a mix of one part wa­ter, one part white vine­gar, leave for 30 min­utes and ma­chine wash as nor­mal. For clothes that are dryclean only, it’s time to go shop­ping!


Chanel’s new fra­grances, No.5 Eau Pre­miere for her and Al­lure Sport Eau Ex­treme for him hit counters this month. This com­ing Satur­day also sees the ar­rival of the sum­mer makeup collection and it’s filled with great colour op­tions. For eyes there are sun-kissed and bronze cream shad­ows (€30) and coloured mas­caras in pur­ple and or­ange (€31). A cream blush adds a touch of tan to the face, (€34.50) and for lips and nails we are spoiled with five shades in each, and all pretty pops of colour in pink, or­ange and lilac (Gloss/€27, Pol­ish/€23). Chanel fans take note, a lot of the collection is limited edi­tion so get your favourites soon.


Need to pick a pedi­cure shade for sum­mer or a hol­i­day? Painted toe nails are a must with open-toed san­dals and it’s the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to ex­per­i­ment with colour even if you wouldn’t with your fin­ger­nails. Hot for this month are bright and fun shades like Essie Style Hunter, a cool crisp so­phis­ti­cated crim­son, €9.99. Nails Inc Down­town is a hot, neon pink with a gel-like fin­ish, €16.80, while Lan­come’s Bright Rib­bons 504, €18.50 is a vi­brant lilac. Top of my own shop­ping list is YSL Bleu Cy­clades 51, a strik­ing metal­lic navy that looks equally good on hands and feet, €24. All avail­able na­tion­wide. As an ef­fec­tive botan­i­cal hair care range, French brand Phy­to­plage is hard to beat; 95%-99% ac­tive in­gre­di­ents and min­i­mal wa­ter, so a lit­tle goes a long way. This Sun Veil is a per­fect af­ter-sun hair re­storer for all the fam­ily on hol­i­day. It de­tan­gles, aids dam­age re­pair and softens hair de­hy­drated by sea salt and chlo­rine. The full sun care range in­cludes pro­tec­tive prod­ucts, too.

La Roche Posay has colour-coded some prod­ucts suit­able for face and body: Com­fort (Blue) is for nor­mal to dry skin, Ul­tra­Light (Yel­low) is for all skin types, and Anti-Shine for com­bi­na­tion or oily skin is Green. The Ul­tra-Light Fluid also comes in a tint for colour with pro­tec­tion.

This new sun range from NUXE might be com­pact with just three SPF op­tions (10, 20 and 30) and this Af­ter-sun Milk, but fans of the brand will recog­nise the famed Prodigieuse fra­grance used by NUXE. The scent is so pop­u­lar that NUXE re­cently re­leased it as a stand-alone per­fume and it’s now No.1 in France. Here it’s blended with co­conut and sun­flower oils for max­i­mum mois­ture, and carob seed pow­der to pro­long your tan.



NUXE RE­FRESH­ING AF­TER-SUN MILK €19, phar­ma­cies na­tion­wide.
