Packing can be a nightmare, and with restrictions on your hand luggage you might need to take a less is more approach when thinking about beauty products. Being on holiday is a great time to let your skin breathe and embrace your natural beauty, so pack these five essentials and let them do the hard work for you, while all you worry about is catching a tan and getting through those summer reads!
#1 Tinted SPF Face cream
While it’s nice to go without foundation on holiday, it can be a little daunting, so invest in a tinted moisturiser with built in SPF. Not only is it light enough to let your holiday skin shine through, but it’s also going to keep your skin hydrated and combat the effects of sea, sun, sand and the chlorine of the pool!
#2 Waterproof mascara
With all the heat and humidity and all the opportunities to be submerged in water, it’s highly likely that at some point you’ll have panda eyes. With a long-lasting waterproof mascara, you can have lovely lashes and you won’t have to worry that you look like something from a horror movie!
#3 Waterproof brow pen
Brows are important these days, we spend a lot of time grooming, pencilling and filling in our brows, so we won’t want to compromise them on holiday. A waterproof brow pen will let you fill and shape your eyebrows however you want, and will stay put no matter what. Whether you’re dancing all night or doing laps of the pool you can rest assured that your eyebrows will stay firmly put, shaped exactly as you want and the right shade, too!
#4 Leave in conditioner
Sun, sea, sand and chlorine wreaks havoc on your hair. Your luscious locks will be dry in no time, so it’s important to bring a leave in conditioner or a conditioning spray to spritz your hair with every day.
#5 Aloe vera after-sun
An aloe vera after-sun or soothing cream will be the perfect thing for any minor sunburn you’ve caught on holiday. We’ve all been there, thinking we’ve slathered ourselves in enough suncream only to be scorched, red and stinging! Aloe is a soothing plant that’s perfect for any minor burns and great for sensitive skin too!
