We've searched the county for some summer health and beauty fixes to keep you looking gorgeous!

1 The costume
Its worth paying a little extra for a costume that fits well. Spend some time choosing the best cut for your figure, there are lots of boutiques in the county that will help you find the perfect swimming costume.
Weve tried and liked:
Temptations
of Stratford-upon-Avon, 33 Sheep Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6EE. Tel: 01789 267788.



2 The legs
Bare legs sometimes need a helping hand but if you dont want to wear stockings then there are some great cheats around.
Weve tried and liked:
New Stocking Powder Spray just spray on,
gently smooth (like applying a foundation) and no one will believe youre not wearing silk stockings. (25 for 90g, from Barbarella, Worcester).
Boots No.7 Self-Tan Quick Dry Tinted Lotion a daily lotion that builds up colour on the legs, and body. Can be messy but no streaks when we tried it (11.50 for 200ml, from Boots).

3 The make-up
When the suns out a natural make up seems so much better for your skin.
Weve tried and liked:
Dr Hauschkas
new range of cosmetics made from biodynamically-grown organic ingredients. Natural colourings such as carrot and beetroot have been used down the ages for cosmetics and now theyre having a revival
(for local stockists visit www.drhauschka.co.uk).



4 First aid at hand
Bites, stings and cuts are just some of the little outdoor hazards
Weve tried and liked:
Pot of Gold by C. L. Leavey,
made with plants including lavender, calendula, pelargonium in a British beeswax base, the scent alone will ease your irritations (9 for 60ml, www.claireleavey.com).
The Old Emporium, 44 The Square,
Kenilworth, Warwickshire, CV8 1EB. Tel: 01926 859960.



5 The dress
Summer garden parties need something special.
Weve tried and liked:
