What beauty products to pack for your holiday

Think carefully about the make-up products you need to take in your holiday bag. Too few people are aware of travel-friendly products that take up much less space, allowing you to bring more products along. So before you head to your luxurious holiday destination, do not forget to pack these essentials in your case.

Looking fresh

Only pack bottles and pots that are 50ml or less, otherwise your beauty products will be banished to your check-in luggage and you will have no access to them until you reach the other end.

Find beauty kits that contain everything you need on holiday, for example body wash, hydramist, moisturizer, shampoo and face wash. Make sure all the products are fresh and have good nourishing qualities. For babies, find a baby kit with baby wash, baby shampoo, baby lotion, baby moisturizer and a baby massage oil.

Hair removal

No matter how much you treat yourself before you leave, your hair will keep on growing while you are away. It is difficult to find a reliable beauty therapist while you are in a different country, so it’s better to pack a Ladyshave so you can remove hair yourself, in any situation.

Avoid multi-tasking and take a good sunscreen

Would you waste time standing in front of a mirror when there are stunning places to explore outside? Definitely not! So do not get into multi-tasking by trying to enjoy the place you’re staying in at the same time as working on your beauty regime. Take a skin-care cream which also protects you from the sun, evens out your complexion, reduces your skin imperfections and gives you a healthy glow. One product offering multiple uses will take much less time to apply and you can get out and about much quicker.

Know your limits

It is not a good idea to experiment with new products and make up while you are on holiday. It’s far better to go with what you know and limit the products you pack as much as you can.

For eyes, lips and cheeks, choose a loose power eye-shadow for daytime that also comes with a metallic cream eye shadow for the night. Then simply add some waterproof mascara and a good two-in-one cheek and lip tint.

Take care of your hair

You might already use a hair dryer, hair straightener and curly tongs on a daily basis, but you don’t have to go to all that trouble on holiday. Taking so many hair care devices  is a waste of suitcase space . So go for the mini version of your straightening irons instead, which can be used for both straightening and curling hair . These mini versions also come in dual voltage so you can use them anywhere in the world. Don’t forget, too, that many hotels provide guests with hair dryers in their room.
