Travel Tips for Your Summer Skin

by Posted in Skin .

If you are jet-setting this summer and worried your skin will suffer due to the travel-stress it may face, don’t fret! Whether you’re off on a romantic getaway, visiting friends for the weekend or going back-packing around the world – look after your skin and your skin will look after you by looking fresh and healthy during your travel adventures.

There is no denying that any sort of travel can be stressful, but there are plenty of little things you can do to keep your skin looking sunshine kissed and gorgeously glowing. Here are a few of our favourite beauty travel tips.


Don’t over-apply

Try to leave the foundation, lotion and potions to a complete minimum whilst you’re away. The sun will

only react with heavily applied make-up and cause an unattractive ‘melting mess’ to what could be a fresh-faced and natural beauty. Go on, I dare you to go bare! Allowing skin to breathe for a few days will do wonders for your complexion and the sun will provide healthy nutrients for a sun-kissed glow (don’t forget to use sun cream of course!)



Treat your lips

lipsIn warmer climates, lips can become cracked, chapped and often dry due to dehydration. To keep lips soft and lovely – pack a lip treatment in your carry bag and everyday bag just in case and apply whenever you feel they need it. Hydrated lips can add a shine and gorgeous appearance to any face, making them the focus of your make-up-free beautiful face!




Bye bye puffy eyes

Don’t touch your face

Whilst travelling, your hands and skin will pick up a huge number of unknown bacteria which can react with your skin and cause unwanted allergy and spot problems. If touching your face during the trip, try to get in the habit of using antibacterial hand wash beforehand to reduce the risk of bacteria exchange.




Get your beauty rest

To allow your skin to fully breathe and relax when your sleep, remove all make-up and sleep bare-faced to feel fully refreshed when you wake.
