Thanks to a fabulous summer holiday in Turkey, I have silky sun-kissed skin. Something I don’t want to loose after flying for 30 plus hours, as well as heading back to winter weather. Here’s a list of tips, tricks and skincare products I’ll be using to maintain perfect skin today, tomorrow and for weeks to come on my return home.
Philosophy Hope In a Jar Day & Night Cream. Paint this on at night and you’ll suddenly give ‘sleeping beauty’ new meaning. It is my go-to whenever my skin needs an extra hydration boost.
Aesop Fabulous Face Oil. Oils are a great way to combat skin turning dull and dry. This one — which contains sweet almond and macadamia oils — can be used every day on normal or even congested skin. Apply 3-5 drops to clean skin or for an intense hydration hit, add a couple of drops to your moisturising cream.
Puretopia Eye Rescue Refresh & Detoxifying Massage Roller. The Puretopia Eye Rescue Refresh and Detoxifying Massage Roller works to soothe, refresh and help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the fragile eye area which will ensure you don’t look like you’ve just had an all-nighter or travelled 30 hours.
Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask. The Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask is a thermal mask that warms to open your pores. The mask draws out and dissolves 2.5 times more dirt, oil, and surface toxins than a basic cleanser, and rinses them clean away with an invigorating cooling sensation. Perfect after a long haul flight – especially when you haven’t had a chance to cleanse properly for quite some time.
Alpha H Instant Facial. A must-have all year round. Keep one in your handbag, or in your carry-on on during flights. Spritz under or over makeup to revitalise and rehydrate skin.
Milk & Co. Body Oil. Coming in at under $15, this super hydrating body oil is a steal. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals and plant extracts and perfect for scars, stretch marks or simply dehydrated skin.
Chapstick Balm. Lips can easily become dry and chapped in any weather. Keep a Chapstick stashed in your pocket to protect your pout whenever you’re on the go, and especially when you’re sitting on a long haul flight.
Paul Mitchell Super Strength Treatment : Paul Mitchell’s Super Strength Treatment instantly rebuilds and restores hair. A must have after days in the sun and surf, or sitting amongst dehydrating aeroplane air-conditioning.
ModelCo Gradual Tan. Maintain your holiday glow on your return and top up your tan with ModelCo’s Gradual Tan and everyday moisturiser.
