Planning a getaway? While it’s great to pack light, you still need all your hair and skin care essentials to keep you looking your best. Here’s the lowdown on the kit you’ll need to take with you.
If you want your skin to be in tip-top shape upon landing, it's important to pack some on-board essentials. Hydration is crucial: due to the air-conditioning, high altitude and recirculated air on planes, dryness, dehydration, redness and inflammation are just some of the common side effects your skin may experience. However it is important to adhere to the airline guidelines, the majority of which specify no liquids over 100mLs be taken on board international flights. Always ensure products are secured tightly and stored safely in a clear case.
When you land
You'll need to factor in your destination when it comes to packing the rest of your beauty products, however a holiday isn't the time to start a new regimen. Instead, decant skin care products into travel-sized containers, like Manicare Travel Bottles. If you're jetting off to somewhere cool, it might be wise to add a serum, moisturiser or face mask with hyaluronic acid to your stash for an extra hydration boost if and when required—this can help prevent freezing temperatures wreaking havoc with your complexion.
Keep a pair of Benefit Cosmetics Grooming Tweezer & Brush on hand for any brow or beauty emergencies, or for affixing falsies. Just remember to pack it in your checked baggage not your carry on, otherwise security will confiscate it!
Banish dark circles and tired-looking peepers with a lightweight balm like Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm.
Infused with noni extract and essential oils, spritz Kora Organics Calming Lavender Mist before bed to fight jetlag.
