When it comes to skincare, what makes the cut when you travel can make all the difference.
To help you edit down your essentials, whether it’s for a weekend or a week away from home, we’re sharing the 5 products we don’t leave home without and why:
1. The All-Rounder Cleanser
Gentle Cleanser is perfect for travel for a number of reasons; think multi-purpose to remove makeup and deep clean while nourishing the skin. This gentle formulation is suitable for all skin types for cleansing, double cleansing, and makeup removal (including eyes and lips) and contains moisture-binding Cucumber Oil to replenish, soothe and soften skin. Aloe vera delivers anti-inflammatory power that helps to calm skin while improving its integrity, perfect for over-exposed holiday skin. Best of all, we're happy to say that Gentle Cleanser doubles as a gentle shaving cream that’s ideal for sensitive skins, that's one less product to pack.
2. The Totally Extra Exfoliant
Exfoliation shouldn’t stop just because you’re on holiday. We always pack Enzymatic Micro Peel because this gentle peel suits even sensitive skins and those experiencing a random freakout that so often happens on holidays. Even better, it does double duty as a leave-on, overnight refining mask to soften, smooth, and reboot your natural radiance. Enzymatic Micro Peel absolutely earns its keep in your carry on.
3. The Anytime Serum
You want your skin to be at its absolute best both during your holiday and for when your roll back into work right? [If you don’t look like you’ve had a holiday then have you even holidayed?] Powered by minerals, peptides, and potent antioxidants like Resveratrol and botanical Vitamin A, Rejuvenate 15 Serum is like a vitamin smoothie for your skin, helping to transform a dull, drab, uneven complexion into a plump, resilient, more radiant version of itself. It also makes the cut for us because it’s a truly hard-working serum that can be used morning and night, unlike anything containing Retinol.
5. The Rescue Treatment
Laser Aid is the multi-tasker you will (inevitably) need to deal with a multitude of issues that can happen when you’re away from home; from insect bites and stings to sunburn, heat relief and unexpected redness. Also helpful to calm angry acne and breakouts, this rescue cream has an innovative cooling effect on the skin, quickly addressing inflammation and bringing calm and order to the skin.
6. The Great Protector
FACT: Age Defence SPF50+ is THE best anti-ager out there; not only protecting your skin from damaging UVA and UVB radiation with the highest SPF but environmental aggressors like free radicals and pollution. The mix of chemical and physical UV filters help to protect your skin without irritating it in the process and don’t coat your face in an obvious white filter. Meanwhile, a decent dose of antioxidants and the moisture your skin needs to successfully battle the day ahead makes this a can’t-leave-the-house-without.
