Hong Kong weather is famous for its unpredictability. We just welcomed summer, but rather than uninterrupted sunshine, we've had pockets of drizzling and hard rain. With the constant humidity and heat, our beauty regimens can be such hard work, especially if we hate looking like a chapped, shrivelled, drippy mess that not even a face mask can hide. So, we've rounded up some of the newest products on the market that can help you look impeccable no matter the weather. Check out this list of beauty products to add to your arsenal this summer.

RECOMMENDED: Are your hands drying out from all those sanitisers? Give your hands a break and pamper them with the best hand masks you can find in the city.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum

This serum promises to deliver all-day skin hydration so that you can get plump and dewy-looking skin. Formulated for all kinds of skin types, the serum will help fix dryness and uneven skin tone. Another great thing about it is that it’s lightweight and fast-absorbing so it won't leave you with a greasy finish, especially on a long hot, humid day.

Rain or shine, the product will serve as your shield and defence to your skin's daily stressors.

Drunk Elephant Wild Marula Tangle Spray

Popular skincare brand Drunk Elephant recently added a hair-care line and we love their weightless leave-in detangler mist. Spray it on your hair after washing, let it air dry, blow dry, or use your flat iron, and it will still deliver manageable, frizz-free, and shiny hair without making your hair feel heavy, or greasy. The smell is great too; the hints of coconut notes will transport you to a sun-kissed paradise.

Available in 12 highly pigmented shades, you can choose pink or coral notes for day wear, a light makeup look, or apply the red and berry notes for that sultry and 'ready to conquer the day' look. The product contains mango butter, hyaluronic acid, and loofah seed oil, that keep your lips nourished, smooth, and hydrated.

Using bronzers can be a tricky situation – apply it wrong, and it will look muddy on the face but use it right, and you will look like you just spent your days on an exotic island with a natural sun-kissed glow. The product is available for lighter skin, medium, and tan so you can choose the perfect match for your skin. The formula is ultra-lightweight and breathable, plus it has a moisturising hyaluronic acid that helps in hydrating your skin.
