Fresh fragrances

Perfumes can be too heavy in hot weather, so try a lighter scent. Our favourite mix and match scents include MOP 01, available in seven flavours including Mandarin, Spearmint and Ylang Ylang to create your own unique fragrance.

Protect against sun damage

Sun protection is vital in keeping skin healthy, so always wear a moisturiser with added SPF, even if it is overcast. Korres produce a number of everyday moisturisers that help protect from the sun, such as Pomegranate Balancing Moisturiser for Oily/Combination Skin. For body protection try Badger Balm SPF15 Sun Block or for a higher level, Korres Sweet Orange Sunscreen Milk SPF25.

Gorgeous skin
The secret to silky soft skin lies in following a simple skin care routine. Exfoliate twice a week with one of our favourite body scrubs, brightening your complexion with a body polish. Moisturising regularly with one of our scrumptious body butters will help keep your skin looking radiant.
