What a beautiful time of year! The sun is beaming, evenings are longer, the air is warmer, drinks are cooler & your suitcase is almost full, but have you packed the travel essentials?
Whether you’re jetting off to bathe in crystal waters and white sandy beaches or preparing yourself for a weekend full of sunshine and great music at your favourite festival – make sure you’re well-stocked!
Here’s our list of TOP travel essentials that deserve to go with you …
Say NO to face wipes!
We’re not advocates for facial wipes, no matter how ‘quick & easy’ they seem. They don’t remove make-up fully and they contain drying alcohols and sensitising fragrances. It’s just as simple to pour a little micellar onto a cotton pad and use that instead! It’s much more gentle on the skin and around the eyes, not to mention, far more effective at removing makeup. So, pack a mini bottle of micellar & your cotton pads – you simply can’t go wrong!
Have fun but be safe
It’s inevitable; ‘SPF’ is at the top of your ‘to pack’ list and that’s great, but just remember to put it to good use! A lightweight SPF for the face can be worn on top of your daily moisturiser and underneath makeup, so it really shouldn’t hinder you while you’re away, SPF is amazing! There’s such a variety these days; gels, sprays, oils, lotions even powders! Want to read a little more on which one’s best? Check out our blog SPF? We’ve got you covered!
The Sheer Zinc SPF30 by DermaQuest is the ultimate healer and protector, a 100% pure physical mineral SPF that will heal and calm any skin type designed to reflect UV rays off the skin. This is a soothing and healing SPF that will protect all skin types, including sensitive and acne prone skin, and is also suitable to be used post treatment to give instant SPF protection without adding any moisture to the skin. Not to mention, it’s subtly tinted to cover any imperfections & redness and finishes with a natural, sun-kissed glow. Is there anything better than a 2-in-1?
When the sun has dawned and you’re finishing the day with a double cleanse (or gin), why not treat your skin to a drink after all that sun exposure? Sheet masks are a great way to do this, they’re cooling, simple to apply & super hydrating! They’ll sit in their little packets, doused in silky serums until you’re ready to slick it on for 10 minutes! They’re packed full of vitamins, amino acids, and minerals and we LOVE them. Pack a couple in your suitcase, they don’t take up any room and can be rather entertaining with friends.
Let your skin breathe on your travels, pack our essentials this year, we guarantee you’ll be looking fresher and more radiant than ever on your return!
See you soon!
