Even steadfast lovers of traditional gels and pomades will know that, when temperatures rise, the results can end up looking more sweaty than stylish. Swap your usual creams for Oribe’s dry texturising spray which promises manageable, easily styled hair and absorbs natural oils to keep you looking fresh all day.

Don’t forget that hair can be just as badly damaged by the sun as skin. If you’re planning on long days of yacht hopping be sure to invest in Phyto’s PhytoPlage protective sun veil. This easy-to-apply mist forms an invisible anti-dehydration layer preserving hair radiance and preventing drying and frizz. It also protects against salt and chlorine so be sure to pack a bottle for your next vacation.

Elegantly defined eyebrows can instantly lift the face and make eyes appear brighter. However, once you’ve packed tweezers, an eyebrow pencil, eyebrow gel and brow highlighter, your make-up bag can start to be a bit bulky. Streamline your kit with Clarins’ chic and practical Perfect Eyes & Brows palette complete with mini tweezers, eyebrow brush, holding wax, three eyebrow powders, an illuminating eyeshadow, applicator and mirror.

Squinting in the sun, laughing at clients jokes and keeping up your winning smile can result in the quick formation of expression lines during the Monaco Yacht Show. Combat these ageing wrinkles with Perricone MD's Acyl-Glutathione Deep Crease serum which is specially formulated to combat the lines created by repeated facial movement. Simply apply a few drops directly to skin before bed and let your beauty sleep do its magic.
