When packing for your summer holiday, there’s a lot to remember. You have to cram your suitcase full of clothes, shoes, a travel guidebook, adaptors and, crucially, ensuring you don’t leave your passport at home. But what about skincare products?
A good skincare routine shouldn’t disappear whilst you’re away. In fact, if you’re jetting off somewhere sunny, it’s even more essential that you maintain a good skincare regimen so your skin doesn’t incur any damage from the sun.
However, it can be stressful to know what skincare products to pack, as you don’t want to overload your bag with lots of different bottles and containers when you’re already so restricted on what you can bring. So, here are our top five luxury skincare products that are essential to have with you on your summer holiday.
Obagi Matt Sun Shield SPF 50
Sun protection is crucial whilst you’re abroad sitting by the pool and enjoying the heat and sun’s rays. However, those rays wreak havoc with the skin, inflicting damage and ageing the face beyond its years.
Obagi Matte Sun Shield SPF 50 offers excellent protection against UVA and UVB rays, preventing the consequences of sun damage. The non-greasy, PABA-free and fragrance-free formula absorbs quickly into the skin for a matt finish, and its added vitamin C gives a bright complexion to the skin.
Its lightweight formula makes it ideal to be worn under makeup and will not leave you feeling oily and greasing like many typical sunscreens. Obagi Matt Sun Shield is suitable for all skin types and is perfect for shielding your skin from sun-induced damage. Simply apply liberally 30 minutes before sun exposure and reapply after towelling dry, swimming or perspiring.
Dr Barbara Stürm Drops Discovery Set
If you want to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun, but also wanted to develop a beautiful and healthy-looking glow, then you need to pack Dr Barbara Stürm Drops Discovery Set into your suitcase.
This trio is a skincare lovers dream and contains:
- Sun Drops
- Glow Drops
- Anti-Pollution Drops
Formulated with SPF 50, the light-textured Sun Drops serum is a saviour for your complexion. The drops contain an active complex of cassia extract, beta-glucan and vitamin E; they can be mixed with your favourite face cream or used undiluted.
The Glow Drops are designed to even out skin tone with wild rose extract to refine pores; this gentle serum gives skin a fresh and natural glow. Simply apply with your face cream, or over makeup, to highlight the cheek and brow bones, or after moisturising for a beautiful complexion.
Finally, the Anti-Pollution Drops protect the skin against skin ageing environmental aggressors whilst also supplying the skin with moisture. An active ingredient obtained from cocoa seeds helps the skin combat signs of digital ageing caused by computers and mobile phones.
These powerful serums work to rejuvenate and strengthen the skin at the cellular level and make the perfect travel companion.
Dr Barbara Stürm Lip Balm
Whilst you’re away soaking up all that wonderful sunshine, you’ll want to protect the delicate skin on your lips. This is where the Dr Barbara Stürm Lip Balm makes the perfect addition to your holiday skincare repertoire.
Packed with antioxidants, this unique lip balm is formulated to soothe and hydrate dry, cracked lips. This super-nourishing balm is infused with a blend of butters and plant-based oils and waxes, including shea butter, avocado, coconut oil and cacao butter. The colourless formula restores comfort to dry lips to prevent dehydration, and the added Vitamin E helps to shield the lips from harsh weather conditions, making it ideal not just for hot, summer holidays, but trips to colder climates too.
Dr Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Modelling Mask
For those days you’ve spent outdoors lounging in the glorious, hot sun, you’ll need something to refresh and replenish your skin. The Dr Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Modelling Mask is the perfect way to deliver intense hydration to your skin.
These cooling masks are an intensely hydrating treatment that gives your skin radiance after just one use. The mask begins as a gel and powder; when mixed, they create a unique experiential texture with long-lasting hydration for ultimate skin-plumping results. Your skin is transformed dewy and radiant with the mask’s professional grade algin and hyaluronic acid that improves the skin’s capacity to hold water, supplying it with essential minerals and microelements.
Just one mask can improve the appearance of dry surface lines and pores for a firmer, supple and more radiant complexion. Perfect for packing away in your bag for a quick application after you’ve spent time outside in the sun.
Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads
Want to build a natural looking tan? The Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads can give you buildable colour whilst providing exfoliating and anti-ageing benefits.
There are two kinds; the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad Gradual Glow, for a streak-free, natural looking glow that builds gradually within 3 to 4 hours, and the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad Intense Glow for more instant results.
These towelettes provide a smooth and healthy-looking tan. The pads are packed with alpha and beta-hydroxy acids to exfoliate for smooth application and anti-ageing benefits to reduce the appearance of pores for an even glow that resists fading.
