Poppy Delevingne; model, actress and ‘Jo Malone London Girl’ is celebrating her new Queen of Pop! collection, a limited edition line which she curated for the famed fragrance brand. Bringing about Jo Malone London’s first ever bubble bath, plus a home candle and trio of colognes in their classic scents, the colourful celebration of bath time wrapped in 60s-inspired, pop arty packaging, is seriously shelfie-worthy.

Besides indulgent baths, one of Delevingne’s “most favourite things in the world,” we sat down with her to talk summer beauty. From skincare travel tips to beach bag favourites, here are the tips and tricks the A-list influencer swears by when the weather warms up.

What is your favourite SPF and are you diligent about applying it?

“I am very loyal to one brand; Heliocare. It was facialist Teresa Tarmey who recommended it to me, I went through a stage of having not great skin and SPF really reacted badly for me but this one is amazing. It’s SPF50 and I use the Light and the Brown and I mix them together. It just glides on. Sometimes SPFs leave you looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost! But even if there’s no sun I put this on because it makes my skin feel nice and you can still see your freckles through it.”

How do you adapt your make-up in summer to allow your freckles to show?

“I always want my freckles to show, so I really only use concealer. A really great friend of mine, [the model] Jess Hart has just launched her own make-up range called Luma Beauty and it’s great for summer. There’s these tinted moisturisers that are almost translucent so you can really see your skin beneath. There’s also beautiful highlighters, cheek and lip tints and pearly eyeshadows – beautiful for summer. I think it’s important to see your freckles, but I like to cover my eye bags! My favourite concealer is the Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher.”

What summer fragrance do you wear and why?

“Red Roses has been my best friend since I was about 18 and I’ll always, always go back to her. But right now, I’m all over the Peony and Blush Suede in my Queen of Pop! collection bottle [which comes in a 30ml] because I can put it in any handbag – take it to the beach or park without lugging a large one around. And the colours are summery [the packaging is inspired by pop art]. On my wedding day I wore the Orange Blossom Cologne – my butterflies-inducing fragrance, it still makes me feel giddy.”

What are your beach holiday beauty essentials?

“A dry body oil, probably the Jo Malone London one in Velvet Rose & Oud. There’s nothing better than a little bit of body oil after sunshine when you’re feeling crispy. The Lucas Papaw Ointment; pop a little bit on your lips, cheeks and eyelids… I love dewy skin in summer. I even put it on my lashes so you don’t have to put any mascara on. Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow, the bronzer for cheeks and the highlighter for shoulders and collarbones. It gives you that instant summer glow. And finally, the Chanel nail polish in Jade. Do you remember Jade? It was such a big deal when it launched! I wore that a month ago and got so many complements on it, I love that for summer.”

What are your tips for achieving the perfect beachy waves?

“I miss my long hair and am trying to grow it out. But even with my bob, braiding at night is key. With this length I’ll do little baby braids. It probably doesn’t look very good, but that’s fine because I’m just going to sleep in them, but when I wake up it has that natural mermaid-esque look. Then I use this Wella System Professional product [Instant Energy, a dry conditioner] that’s like hair energy in a can. It’s kind of like a dry shampoo but it’s a conditioner, and it gives your hair literally energy and life and a little bend. It’s a magic product.”

Do you have an in-flight skincare routine when travelling?

“I do actually. The wonderful Dr Barbara Sturm very kindly sent me her skincare travel kit and I’ve fallen completely in love. There’s these little ampules of hyaluronic acid which you crack open and on the plane your skin soaks it right up, there’s also a mini moisturiser, a little baby cleanser and the Glow Drops that you pat on… So I’ve been travelling with that for the last two months and have become very addicted. I wouldn’t do a sheet mask on a flight because it might feel very messy – although the Charlotte Tilbury dry masks are insanely good – but also because I wouldn’t want to scare anyone sitting next to me! There’s something very Hannibal Lecter about those masks. I’d hate anyone to wake up next to that! But I am really good at looking after my skin on a flight because I feel like it makes the world of difference.”

Do you adapt your diet come summer?

“I don’t consciously adapt it, but it depends what I’m doing. I travel so much that it’s hard to stick to any kind of diet. I also love food and it makes me really happy, so I eat everything in moderation. I’ll have a cheese burger if I want a cheese burger but I’m also really healthy and like to eat really good things. I take snacks with me when I travel like nuts and hummus crisps or sea salt and balsamic flavoured rice cakes that are really tasty but keep me away from the 17 packs of Monster Munch which is what I want to eat! Things that give you energy and are good for your skin and hair help. Also, I track down juicing places wherever I go. Getting off a flight and having some kind of juice filled with green vegetables is always a good way to nourish yourself. But it’s hard, it’s not easy to stick to anything when you’re travelling.”

What about your fitness routine?

“It’s the same with exercise, if I’m at home in London I’ll book in with my personal trainer or do pilates three to four times in a week, but then I’ll be travelling and won’t work out for a month! So my routine isn’t really seasonal, but dependent on my schedule. I’m about to start filming a TV show in Nice, so I’m frantically digging around trying to find a trainer or pilates studio where I can do it while I work, because I like exercise not just for body but for mind, it keeps me switched on and energised.”
