Just when you thought this year’s summer holiday plans were going nowhere, it’s officially on!
Here’s how to prep and protect your skin, and the best summer beauty products to squeeze into your carry-on.
BEFORE YOU GO
With spas and salons off limits for the last few months, holiday prep might be more limited than usual, so make the most of what you take with you. Pack multi-tasking products that really earn their spot in your little plastic pouch and hand luggage, such as Lily Lolo’s Makeup Mist. Infused with aloe vera, it makes a great hydrating mist for during the flight, is super cooling by the pool and keeps makeup in place on sizzling summer evenings too.
To really work that inimitable post-beach glow, leave out foundation in favour of BB Cream. Lily Lolo’s BB Cream is one of the few BBs available that doesn’t contain silicone, which can clog pores, making it the perfect partner for dewy, healthy looking holiday skin.
WHILE YOU’RE THERE
When it comes to holiday exfoliation, after a day in the sun, it’s all about a softly softly approach. Our tip? Instead of packing your regular scrub, pick up a pot of natural yogurt in the local grocery store – the lactic acid in yogurt gently dissolves skin cells for a naturally brighter appearance, and also helps soothe sunburn.
For skin that feels dry from all that sun, sand and AC, apply your usual moisturiser as a mask in a generous layer, and leave to soak in for a few minutes before massaging in the excess for a hydration boost that’ll leave you glowing. We love Lily Lolo Hydrate Night Cream, which contains nourishing argan oil, and soothing lavender and rose oils. If you can, stash it in your hotel room mini bar or the fridge for an instantly cooling, lifting effect. Bon voyage!
