As the heatwave in London takes over, Mollie King talks post-flight skincare, lost luggage and her Odabash wishlist...

In recent years, the age of the metrosexual male has really come into it's own and now men worldwide often make time to groom themselves; in some cases taking even longer in the bathroom than their wives & girlfriends! This is not behaviour we particularly wish to encourage (THE BATHROOM IS OURS!) but with Father's Day fast approaching on Sunday 21st June, we are more than happy to treat the most significant man in our lives with a little skin TLC package.

If there's anyone that's going to have a travel bag full of goodies, it's going to be the biggest beach babe of them all: Elle Macpherson.
We talk to the epitome of Boho about her ultimate holiday destination, lost luggage & post-flight skincare!

As another extra-long weekend begins tonight, we have decided there will be no excuse for us ladies not to spoil ourselves with a little pamper session over the coming days.
Whether it’s treating yourself to a massage, doing an at home pedicure or even just fake-tanning for the nights out ahead we insist you light some candles, have a nice soak in the bath with a good book and give yourself some well-deserved rest and relaxation time – after all what woman can fail to feel fabulous after some self-indulgence!
This week's Friday Fix and one product that we will be making sure is part of our pamper routine is the new Moroccan Rose Gold Glow Perfect Dry Oil from Melissa’s favourite skincare experts REN.

1. Melissa has released a debut handbag collection for SS15, which will you be rocking on the beach this year?
The Zig zag pouch - it’s the perfect accessory for that beachy vibe but I’ll be taking it to music festivals and bbq’s too!
2. What Sun-seeking destinations can you look forward to?
I’m off to a little island off of Singapore to film a t.v. show soon and I cannot wait to live on the beach!
3. In case you lose your luggage at the airport, what emergency items do you make sure are packed in your travel holdall?
I’ve learned the hard way to always pack the essentials in your hand luggage, so – a black bikini (this color looks great on your first day when you’re not tanned yet), this Summer I’m wearing the Martinique Bandeau and pairing it with the Jessica cover up in Navy. Big shades from Anine Bing, Lancome Imanance Tinted Moisturizer with SPF so my skin is still protected; and a good book - right now it’s The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.
4. Post-flight beauty – how do you refresh your skin after a long flight?
The failsafe trick - splash some cold water to awaken the skin and then use a gentle exfoliator (I love Kate Somerville’s) to scrub away all the "yuck" from travelling. If I have time, I’ll throw on Eve Lom’s Moisture Mask while I unpack – a good way to multi task! And then apply a thick cream to sleep in, like Sisley’s.
5. What’s on your wish list from the Melissa Odabash SS15 Collection?
The Melissa dress in yellow knit looks very sexy – I have known Meli for 10 years and she knows how to make a woman feel sexy! I also love the new sporty vibe of her designs like the Bali bikini.
6. Hotspots for your upcoming trip to Singapore?
I have no idea yet, all to be discovered! But I did visit Bali last year and can highly recommend morning coffee and book browsing at Drifter, learning to surf on Seminyak beach, Potato Head for dinner at sunset and Favela for late night cocktails and dancing!

As London says goodbye to fashion week and awards season comes to an end, Melissa shares all the backstage beauty secrets & holy grail event-prep products so you can look red carpet ready every weekend!

This week we felt it was time to pay our skin some attention externally, as we want to ensure our skin is looking fresh and dewy now that spring is in our sights. On a day-to-day basis our faces have a lot to deal with as we women are applying make-up, facing the elements, exercising at the gym and everything else that happens in-between.
Every now and again we believe it’s essential to give our skin the little pick-me up it deserves and when this time comes Melissa’s product of choice is always the Original Strength Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel from Dr Dennis Gross.

In addition to a clean diet, lots of exercise and keeping hydrated, Melissa knows that maintaining a youthful glow doesn't end with her skincare drawer; so when it comes to skincare supplements, Melissa looks to Imedeen.
A world leader in oral skincare, Imedeen offer a range of anti-aging supplements which aim to work where traditional creams can't reach to leave your skin clear, radiant and plump.

The harsh winter weather doesn't appear to be saying goodbye anytime soon, and whilst we are all lacking some much-needed Vitamin D, our skin is paying for it too!
Too boost lack-lustre skin in these 'between' months, Melissa swears by Vitamin-C infused skincare; available in some of it's purest forms, Vitamin-C is a powferful anti-oxidant that can rejuvinate the complexion, refine skin texture and minimise dark spots in a matter of weeks; so you'll be ready to reveal radiant, summer skin just in time for bikini season!
