There’s nothing worse than arriving at your holiday resort after a long plane journey looking more like a caveman than a holidaymaker. Your hair’s seen better days, your make-up’s sweated off and you look like Casper the ghost compared to everyone else who’s been there for a week already. Here’s my 6 beauty must haves to keep you looking fresh for when you arrive to start your holiday.
1) Dry shampoo
Every woman’s best friend when it comes to hot conditions. A few sprays of this on your roots will keep your hair looking clean and volumised at all times on your travels.
2) Mattifying primer
The difference that this little gem can make is incredible. Foundation without a primer won’t last long in the heat, so basing it with a mattifying primer just before application will ensure it lasts the duration of the journey.
3) bareMinerals™ Powder
Heavy make-up on top of sweat can block your pores and cause breakouts. Nobody wants to look oily and nobody wants a break out just before your holiday. But don’t worry, bareMinerals™ powder is good for your skin and avoids that shiny glow.
4) Fake tan
Why suffer the pain of sunburn and have to wait ages for that golden tan to come when you could fake it and be instantly bronzed?
5) Make-up wipes
If a long journey is what you have in store, make-up wipes are a life saver. Whether it’s to take it off to give your skin a break while you sleep, or to just reapply a whole new face; they’re a very good idea while travelling.
6) A UVSunSense wristband
This is by far one of the best gadgets I’ve come across for ensuring you don’t get caught out by the sun. The band works with sun creams with an SPF of 15 and higher. When you need to put more sun cream on or seek shade, it will change colour. Helping you to achieve that colour you desire with out the risk of burning.
