I’m fairly conscientious when it comes to day-to-day body maintenance but, like most of us, I step up my routine before a holiday, switching to harder-working products to tan, firm and de-fizz. Rather than indulgent textures and scents, it’ s effective ingredients, the latest technology and innovative application techniques that do it for me – though, because I invariably leave my beach body-honing to the last minute, they need to be easy to use and fast working, too. These products do most (if not all) of the above and will get you that better bikini body, too – no problem – Leyla, Contributing Beauty Editor

Soap & Glory Sit Tight Super Intense XS Body Firming Serum, $ 23.94

‘This is just brilliant. The stimulating blend of caffeine and sandalwood seed really wakes up my skin – and the puffy areas at the tops of my thighs look smoother pretty much instantly after using this. It works hard – not only does it heat up gradually to get your circulation going but the teeny metal rollers give stubborn areas an intense massage, too – the key to curbing cellulite. Amazing.’

The Body Shop Spa Fit Smoothing & Refining Body Scrub, $ 21.65

‘My skin smelled lovely and felt softer after using this citrus scrub, but the apricot kernels are a bit gentle for me – I’d have liked a grainier texture.’

Parissa Body Sugar 2-in-1 Roll-On, $ 30.88

‘DIY hair removal can be a hassle but the microwaveable barrel makes applying the warm sugar a breeze, and whipping the strips off was painless (I’m a wuss!). Definitely worth a go.’

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Oil, $ 10.27

‘The hydrating avocado oil and antioxidant Coenzyme Q10 left my skin softer and with a slight sheen. The texture isn’t at all sticky and absorbs really fast, as well.’

Sisley Tinted Body Sun Glow Gel, $ 100.41

‘This is instant tan glides on and leaves a natural-looking color that doesn’t transfer but washes off easily. It has a subtle smell, too. Worth splashing out on if you can.’

3 easy cheats mini manicure

No time for a mani this month? These simple tricks and clever beauty buys guarantee gorgeous nails in minutes – no nail technician needed.

  1. Look for nail polish brands with flat brushes – the squarer shape brings the color to the centre of the nail. Try L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Nail $ 7.71.
  2. An extra-glossy top coat makes your hands look healthy, prevent chips and keeps your color true. We love YSL La Laque Couture Brillance Extreme, $ 27.80
  3. Transparent hues give bare nails a nice finish in seconds. Bourjois Nail Enamel 1 Seconde in Grenadine Tonic, $ 9.25, is my must-have summer shade.
