The essentials for summer holidays

Thursday, 18th July, 2019 10:30am

When travelling or on holiday it is easy to forget about your daily beauty maintenance. Sun, sea and sand can be detrimental to our beauty routine, and while we should never forget the SPF, there are other essentials to pack for a great holiday.

Invest in some small reusable plastic bottles to decant your regular skincare and lotions. You can reuse these each time you travel, not only do they save space, it means that you can keep your routine. It’s also worth bringing two cleanse off mitts as these again save space and dry quickly, all you must do is rinse them. It’s more environmentally friendly, too, as they are reusable many times.

I think by now everyone has invested in smaller versions of their favourites such as Murphy Minis, which are small shampoo, conditioners and styling products by Kevin Murphy. When going to the sun I tend to bring the blonde angel as it keeps my colour fresh and my parched hair hydrated. They retail from €7 and the styling products are handy for the handbag too

Protect your lips from harmful UVA and UVB rays with the Uriage Bariesun Lipstick SPF30 (€10). It’s good to protect our lips with a balm in all-weather but add in sun protection with this product for maximum safety from the sun’s rays. It effectively protects lips from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays while restoring softness and comfort. Thanks to its anti UVA-UVB filtering complex, this stick provides high protection, is perfect for everyday use, all year round. With a hydrating base, enriched with vitamins A, C and E as well as essential fatty acids, the stick nourishes lips as well as being water-resistant.

Everyday food and drink can stain your teeth, from the usual culprits of coffee, curry/tomato sauces, to the likes of fruit juices and soft drinks that we tend to indulge more in on holidays. Snacking can have its toll, so avoid yellow stains and keep your smile sparkling whilst travelling with continuous and easy everyday care. These super nifty products from iWhite are the perfect size to travel light with:

*iWhite Teeth Whitening Toothpaste (€9.50). Achieve noticeably white, more pearly teeth with the iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Toothpaste.
