Metallic colours, especially sequins or other embellished looks, are your friend.

Slap on SPF like Gwen


Singer Gwen Stefani, 49, admits she has applied high SPF and stayed out of the sun since her teenage years.

Do you want a stunningly clear complexion like hers?

Drink la lot of water, exfoliate once a week and apply Factor 50, even in winter. You can try Cetaphil Daily Defence Moisturiser SPF50+ (£8.59, Super- drug).

The great thing about the product is it does not block pores.

Make a statement with your accessories

Oscar winner Anne ­Hathaway, 36, is rarely seen out and about without either a trilby or a wide-brimmed hat in the summer.

See red like diva Dita


Be bold with colour this summer. And if bright clothes are not your thing, lift your look with a bright red lipstick.

Burlesque diva Dita Von Teese, 46, swears by her cherry-red vintage smackers, as a well-defined lip accentuates her flawless skin.

Dita’s tip? Use lip liner around the edges and fill in the lips before adding lipstick on top.
