Since it's 11 days til my holiday to Majorca, I thought I'd do a little count down on my blog and a few count down/preparation posts! Today's post is about holiday skin and a few ideas of what to take with you on your jollies!
Because most countries that we go on holiday to are super super hot (unless you're staying in England for your holidays, well that's a whole other kettle of fish!) we need to prepare our skin and make sure that we don't damage or neglect caring for it just because we are away. It can be a bit of a pain in the ass packing your suitcase and not knowing what you're going to need and if you're like me, you end up taking far too much and not using any of it! So this time around I've chosen what I'm taking beforehand and made a list of why they are good choices to take!
Nivea Visage, Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream - it does what it says on the tin! This is a good choice for your holidays because it's light and adds not just moisture but a slight colour to your skin. It's better than wearing foundation all day every day and having it slowly melting off your face in the blazing heat. I always use a tinted moisturiser during the day on holiday but another good idea would be to wear a BB or CC cream as they have added protection and will probably last longer when applied.
Garnier Body, Summer Body - you're probably going to need to excessively moisturise your body on holiday because spending all day in the sun can leave your skin seriously dehydrated. This product is good because whilst moisturising it also helps to build a natural tan which is great if you're like me and don't tan at all, ever.
Halo Eye Make-up Remover Pads - pretty simple, wipes just make taking make-up off so much easier and quicker and when you're on holiday you are looking for ease. These are great to have in your hand luggage too for those airport make-up disasters.
Hawaiian Tropic Protective Sun Lotion, Factor 15 - you will most certainly need some sort of sun cream whilst on holiday. Whether you burn or not, it is imperative that you have sun cream available to you at all times. You really need to look after you're skin whilst you're under the sun! SPF 15 is the lowest I would ever use on my body and I'm taking a much higher SPF for my face and ever burning boobs.
Suncase Face Cream For Sensitive Skin, SPF 50 - this is a sun cream for your face (and I will be using it on my chest too ha). The skin on your face is super, super sensitive and needs a higher SPF than the rest of your body to stop it from burning. This cream is great and it uses mostly natural ingredients plus, it makes your skin feel really soft and silky.
Nars Face Firming Foundation - I am taking this with me for night time. At night it will be less hot and if I'm going out on the town, I'll want a better coverage than just tinted moisturiser. Obviously if you are like me, you can take whatever foundation you fancy, I just really like this one!
Nivea Sun Moisturising After Sun - moisturising again! You can't moisturise too much! You really need an after sun for when and if you do get burnt. It will take the sting out of the burn and will make you skin feel super nice. Always get an after sun with added aloe vera gel because it works quicker and is a more natural ingredient.
Halo Deodorant Wipes - for when you get sweaty! These are great for popping in your bag and carrying around with you. If you start to sweat you can just whip them out in the toilets and have a quick clean. Really handy and really good for your skin and body odour!
