There’s nothing better to look forward to than a holiday: a time to relax and take a well-deserved break from the everyday work routine and unwind. However, going on holiday doesn’t mean taking a break from your usual skin care regime. In fact, it’s even more important when spending time in different climates to go that extra mile to take care of your skin and hair. Make sure to use targeted products that work twice as hard to keep you looking and feeling beautiful.
The crucial factor in sunny climates is SPF protection. It is especially important to use a high-factor SPF on your face to help prevent premature ageing, wrinkles and dark spots from the sun.
VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70
The ultra lightweight formula of the Armada Sport 70 sun cream won’t clog pores and provides complete protection from the sun’s harmful rays. It’s also water-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about forgetting to reapply after perspiring or coming into contact with water or the sea.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil
Made of 98.8 per cent natural ingredients, this fantastic oil and its rich, moisturising formula can be used on both the skin and hair. Bonus: this multi-tasking oil greatly minimises your load when it comes to packing.
HOLIDAY IN THE TROPICS
Soaring temperatures and damp climates tend to play havoc with your beauty routine. Skin can become sensitive and unbalanced, whilst hair can become prone to frizz and increased oiliness. Look for products with natural ingredients that will help calm and stabilise your skin.
SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge EX
This light, everyday moisturiser penetrates deep into the skin to moisturise, effectively hydrate and improve the skin from within. It is also infused with unique active whitening agent that works to balance your skin tone and unleash your skin’s translucent aura.
Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic Shampoo
This antioxidant rich shampoo volumises, smoothes and fights frizz – making it an ideal shampoo for use if you’re living in or visit a damp climate. It is also formulated without sulfates, parabens and other nasty chemicals, making it ideal for regular use to rid hair of oil and product build up.
On the other end of the spectrum to humid climates, cold winter weather can have just as damaging effect on the skin. Common complaints during winter seasons are dry skin and brittle hair. Combat this by opting for richer creams, as well as moisturising hair products.
SK-II Stempower Rich Cream
This facial cream penetrates the skin to moisturise deeply and effectively using the Stem-Acanax Complex. After cleansing, toning and applying essence, take a small amount of the product with the spatula, and dot it all over your face. Gently smooth it into the skin. Within two weeks you are likely to see reduced signs of ageing and taut skin.

Leave for five minutes, then rinse. For an extra moisturising treatment, simply apply and tie up in a towel and leave for as long as desired, then rinse.
