SUMMER SERIES: SURVIVING A FAMILY HOLIDAY

Although mostly blissful, travelling can also be pretty stressful and travelling with your family is a whole different story. Our top tip? Plan, plan, plan – with a back-up plan for all eventualities, including ways to beat boredom and most importantly, stay well! And then because life and babies rarely go quite according to plan, be prepared to ditch those plans at any given point. Oh, and you can never have too many snacks. Or wet wipes.

When travelling to another country it’s important you think about your health and possible problems you may encounter. Below are our essentials for a fun, healthy and smooth (as can be) family trip: 

SLEEP, SLEEP, AND SLEEP

The most important thing you can do while traveling is sleep. It’s no revelation that our bodies need rest when we’re physically traveling, crossing time zones, carrying luggage to and from destinations, walking all day, and everything else. Traveling can be strenuous on your body so make sure you and your family get plenty of rest after a long day’s sightseeing. Listen to your body on how much sleep is enough sleep, you’re on holiday so siestas are well and truly allowed!

STAY HYDRATED

Water is key - but make sure to check the drinkability of tap water in the country you’re going to. We’d always recommend bottled water, just in case. And carry one with you at all times.  Drink enough water even though it may not be convenient to find public restrooms on the road as being out in the sun really takes it’s toll on the hydration of your skin. Water is the foundation of your livelihood and your body will definitely thank you for it.

PROTECTION AGAINST VIRUSES

Becoming ill whilst travelling is the worst so make sure you’re taking precautions. Using the right essentials oils works wonders for protecting you and your family against any viral or bacterial infections. The 1001 Remedies Pur air spray contains 19 different essential oils incl. peppermint, eucalyptus, cinnamon and more. Cinnamon oil will reinforce your natural immunity with its strong antiviral and antibacterial properties. Ravintsara has anti-microbial properties that will purify your environment with a protective shield allowing you to breathe a cleaner air. Our 30ml travel size pur air  is perfect to take out and about with you.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN

Protect your skin from the outdoors and harsh sun exposure by wearing sunscreen with minimum SPF 15, making sure to reapply every two hours if possible. After a long day at the beach and playing in the sun it’s important to put hydration back into your skin. Our 100% cold pressed argan oil is perfect for doing just that, really nourishing & repairing the skin back to good health.
