7 Travel Beauty Tips
By Michelle Blackmore
Everyone wants to feel and look good on holiday but travelling, and the sun, can take its toll on our hair and skin.
Just as you plan your itinerary on holiday, so should you plan to take care of your hair and skin, so here are some helpful travel beauty tips for when you next jet off on your next trip, be it for business or pleasure!
Moisturise Before You Fly
Keep your skin hydrated - the night before you fly, apply a heavier-than-normal moisturiser and apply again in the morning. This will help your skin combat the dehydrating effects of being in the cabin, leaving you more 'fresh faced' when you disembark.
Forget the Foundation
If you can, be prepared to ditch your usual foundation and instead just travel wearing moisturiser. Trying to wear sunscreen and foundation isn't easy. If you don't like going without foundation, one option is to take your make-up off just before you board, putting on your moisturiser, and then reapplying once you've landed if you really can't travel without a full face. Alternatively, consider a tinted moisturiser.
If you're going somewhere hot then you will be applying suntan lotion to your face. This can sometimes make even usually normal skin become greasy and oily. So travel with some facial blotting papers and gently dab your T-bar area to lift off the oil and eliminate blocked pores.
Thick, black, luscious lashes make you look and feel amazing regardless of make-up. So wave goodbye to mascara and have individual lashes applied at a salon before you go so you look a million dollars by the pool. You'll never have to worry about mascara running down your face either.
Leave In Conditioner
If possible, use a leave-in conditioner in your hair during the day time when you're out in the hot sun, it will protect your hair from drying out and becoming brittle.
In hot climates you need to stay hydrated so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout your travels - whilst flying, on the beach all day and also in the evening too.
Sore, Tired Feet
To help you recover from sore and tired feet, lay down against a wall and lift your legs right up into the air, placing your bottom flush with the wall. You'll be amazed at the near instant effect this has on reviving sore and tired feet.
