With Spring just around the corner, we’re all craving the feeling of warm sun on our backs and holiday planning is well underway.
It’s never too early to start planning– especially if you have an Easter break planned– so here’s our ultimate list of get-away beauty products.
This is an essential, especially if you are travelling by plane. Being in the air can really dry out your skin so it’s important to keep it hydrated. Having the right natural moisturiser is so important and remember if you’re flying it needs to be under 100ml. The Green People Neutral Light Day Moisturiser (£18.50) comes in a 50ml flight friendly size and it’s scent free so you’re safe from bothering other jet-setters with strong scents.
A natural beauty lovers, we know our skin is on of the most important things we own and protecting it from the sun is vital. The benefit of SPF is being promoted more and more even when you’re not kicking back in 30 degree temperatures. The Soleil Toujour Organic Sheer Sunscreen Mist (£32) is a perfect sun cream choice because of it’s easy spray on application, no white smudgey marks and has an SPF of 50– perfect to protect even the most delicate of skin.
Sticking with facial skin care, whether your trip is a relaxing one or an adventure your skin can still stay soothed. Masks are a great way to unwind in the evening whether you’re at home or away. Earth’s Kiss Miracle Clay Facial Hydrate Bamboo Sheet Mask (£1.99) is a great option for your suitcase. It takes up next to no space and is one of the cheapest organic face masks out there– so there really is no excuse not to make sure there's one in your bag.
Keeping your face hydrated is important, but don’t forget about your hands. Some holidays can be really hands on and exceptionally hot or cold weather can damage your skin. Hand creams are a handbag staple– so make sure they are a travel bag staple too. Bee Inspired Silky Hand Cream – balancing, uplifting and energising geranium and orange 30ml (£8) is the perfect travel size hand cream with a scent to make your friends jealous. It also comes in a 100ml airless pump (£15) if you really love it.
Let’s face it, who wants to spend time washing their hair when they could be exploring or laying by the pool? For those days when you could just about get away without spending half an hour in the shower dry shampoo is going to be your trip saviour. Tints of Nature Dry Shampoo (£11.99) is travel sized, non-aerosol and fragrance free.
Onto makeup: sunny holidays give your face a natural summer glow, but there’s no harm in a little extra help right? Bareminerals Barepro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Spf 20 (£29) is the all-inclusive natural foundation package. It claims to have 24 hour coverage (perfect for long beach days), be heat, humidity, water and sweat-resistant and comes in 30 different shades.
Remember your trip for years to come through yours sense of smell by wearing a new scent– then whenever you smell it the fond jet-setting memories will fly back. Eden Perfumes have a range of Vegan friendly scents starting at £18 for 30ml so if you’re trying to save your spending money this one won’t break the bank.
