Summer is finally here, so we’ve come up with our top tips for that perfect getaway! Whether it’s a city mini break or two weeks in paradise, with friends, family or solo, our holiday travel tips will make sure you arrive in the sunshine in style!
Style out your luggage and make it yours! Get a statement luggage tag to house your key details and wrap some ribbon or an old scarf to make your case recognisable.
Remember to pack the all-important multi use bag if you are limited on space! It can keep your valuables and money safe during your flight and double up as a cute clutch for evenings.
Enliven with uplifting fragrance throughout your flight and refresh just before you land with a Eclectic Elements rollerballs, perfect to apply discretely in flight with “no spray”. (Our favourites are the fruity Cosmic Bloom and refreshing Citrine Lagoon). You will be holiday-ready as soon as you step off the plane!
Catch some Zzzzzz’s for an instant refresh, take a pretty eye mask on board to help block out the crowded place (and kids!) for the recommended 20 minute nap time.
Hydrate as much as possible before, during after your flight. Even the shortest flight can dehydrate you and your skin. The Aerospace Medical Association suggests about eight ounces of water every hour you’re in the air to balance hydration. Keep skin moisturised with our Citrus Hand and Nail Creams, enriched with linden extract and pro vitamin B5, they help soften and lock in moisture.
PREP & PROTECT
Protect your skin against those harsh rays with a minimum factor 30 and 50 for the face (remember protecting doesn’t stop tanning!) Pins looking a little pasty? Begin prepping skin two weeks prior to your holiday with a good exfoliator and get a head start with a gradual fake tan to build up a ‘legs out’ glow.
….And don’t forget the shades – the bigger the better to precept the delicate eye area. The perfect excuse to treat yourself to a pair at the duty free!
Keep it simple with key essentials to take you from beach to bar and sightseeing to dinner. A kaftan is the perfect way to cover up from the peak heat sun, and stylishly change up your outfit, style with twisting your hair up into a messy bun to feel like you have changed up your style for the evening. Keep a small Eau Fraiche in your bag to refresh throughout the day and mask the scent of sunscreen, along with a refreshing facial mist to add much needed moisture to skin.
We would love to hear about your amazing breaks and if you have any more tips for travel!
