Post Summer Hair
Months of intense UV, swimming-pool chlorine and salty sea water all contribute to dry hair and a sensitive scalp. Christophe Robin Detangling Gelée rebalances the scalp with zinc, magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium, and detangles and fortifies damaged hair fibres. Use it after shampooing as you would a conditioner, but, unlike a conditioner, it needs to be applied to your scalp, too.

Moisturising Skin Booster
No amount of sheet masks, SPFs and overnight oils will have been able to counteract all the damage created by a few weeks of sun and sea. In fact, when temperatures are high, the skin tries to cool itself down by actively losing water – and while this makes our skin look superficially plump and pretty in the short term, it suddenly turns extra dry post-vacation. So at this time of year your skin needs a deep rehydration in the form of hyaluronic acid.
