It’s that time of year when we look forward to our Summer holiday – whether you prefer a city break, sight-seeing trip or lazy beach paradise – eléni have five holiday tips you’ll want to remember!
Tip 1: Make the most of your luggage allowance
Heather Poole, a flight attendant from Los Angeles, demonstrated how to pack enough for a 10-day trip into a single standard carry-on. Our top tip? To keep clothes smelling fresh when you travel, place a fabric softener sheet in the bottom of the bag.
Tip 2: Don’t leave your skincare regime behind
You may be tempted to bring face wipes with you on holiday for their convenience, but don’t forget face wipes aren’t good for your skin. Warm weather, humid atmospheres and dry environments will all take their toll, so keep up your great skincare routine while you’re away and your skin will thank you for it later!
Tip 3: Combat dehydration
Many things can contribute to dehydration on holiday; travelling by plane can aggravate all skin types due to the re-circulated, dry and filtered air; spending more time in the sun than you are used to, especially if you do a lot of walking; and overindulging in those yummy poolside cocktails can all make your skin lose the essential moisture it needs. Make sure to drink plenty of water and bring eléni’s Facial Toner Spritz with you, so you can refresh, re-energise and #getspritzed throughout the day!
Tip 4: Switch from Foundation to Tinted Moisturiser
Many Foundations will be too heavy to wear on a sunny holiday, so consider switching to a Tinted Moisturiser or BB Cream – this can also help to prevent blocked pores and pesky breakouts in warmer weather.
Tip 5: Don’t forget your SPF
We all know the terrible damage that exposure to the sun can do to your skin, including sun spots, ageing, burns, pigmentation, and elastosis (the destruction of the elastin and collagen tissue causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin). Make sure you wear a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher, and that you reapply it regularly including hard-to-reach spots.
And finally, don’t forget to relax, unwind and enjoy your time away! Happy Holidays, love eléni.
