Summer holidays are on the horizon and whether you are home or abroad we love them all the same. However, changes in temperature, climate and diet that frequently accompany a holiday can cause complaints from your skin.
However, take into consideration of traveling with liquids, be aware of the restrictions to allow only 100ml or less into hand luggage. So be sure to make the most of space in your travel sized bag by prioritising your favourite (mini) products that will help your skin with the new temperatures!
Wearing sun cream: Sunburn is the most common type of summer skin complaint and can be exacerbated for those who suffer from rosacea, eczema or acne. Some sun creams can cause issues for your skin, so for sensitive skin its better to use a mineral sun block such as zinc oxide or titanium oxide to provide a barrier and to help reduce redness.
Use a gentle cleanser: Cleansing is a crucial holiday skincare tip as it removes sweat and sun cream. Do not be tempted to use cleansers or washes provided free by hotels as they may contain chemicals which could cause you to react or strip your skin of its natural oils. Try opting for our Illuminate Melting Cleanser instead (only 50ml perfect for hand luggage!) to remove dirt without irritation.
Gentle exfoliation: Removing extra sweat and sun cream from pores can leave healthier glowing skin. Exfoliation while on holiday should ideally be done in the evening before cleansing. Try our Superfruit Active Exfoliation for a deep scrub (perfect travel size!) Or our Illuminate Facial Polish for a gentle everyday use.
Hydrate: Increased water intake in hotter weather helps all problem skin issues. And even if you aren’t away on holiday, drinking water is always beneficial for your skin. Aim for at least eight glasses per day to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Protecting your skin from the sun and heat is crucial for maintaining healthy skin during the summer months. By following these tips and being aware of the hand luggage restrictions for liquids, you can enjoy your travels with peace of mind and healthy, happy skin.
