Finally, summer is here and holiday season is upon us. Who else cannot wait to get there toes in the sand, have a swim in the sea and start sipping on a pina-colada? To help your holiday get off to a smooth start here are our top 5 holiday beauty essentials to assure you are all prepared for your sunny break.
1) Sun Protection Oil
Unlike your usual cream sunblocks, oils don’t tend to leave a white cast on the skin and most absorb far faster than creams. Different from your typical tanning oil which has minimal UV protection, specifically formulated protection oils have a rage of SPF up to SPF 50. Try and find a natural brand that will also nourish whilst you tan such as La Roche-Posay Anthelious Protective Oil in SPF 50+.
Voted best product by Prima Magazine, our innovative spray is a holiday must have. As well as a offering a beautiful calming aroma, this wonder product will also detoxify your air and reinforce your natural defences with its bacteria killing abilities. A couple of sprays on the plane will revive your senses and ensure you dont pick up any bugs.
3) SPF Lip Balm
We have already covered keeping you skin protected from the sun but what about the thinnest skin on our face - our lips! It is really important to ensure you have SPF lip balm to protect this area from the sun and moisturise. We love the Lanolips SPF 30 tinted balm which offers a wash of colour along with protection.
4) Texturising Hair Spray
Time to embrace your hairs natural texture! Dipping in and out of the sea and pool all day doesn’t lend itself to the silky sleek straight hair many of us wear on a daily basis. Instead, work with your hair by enhancing your natural texture with a salt or wave spray for a beach look. We are loving OUAI haircare wave spray which also contains a range of amino acids and oils to nourish your hair.
5) 1001 Remedies Treasure Oil
Rather than using your usual after sun lotion, why don't you switch too using our 100% argan oil - treasure oil. This concentrated high quality oil offers all the nutrients you need to ensure the skin is nourished after spending all day in the sun and doesn’t contain the filler ingredients most creams do.
