How to safeguard your skin when you’re travelling...

Vacations, staycations, road trips or glamping. Whether we’re staying at home or going abroad, August is typically the month when we travel – and it’s our skin that so often pays the price.
So follow our troubleshooting guide to maintaining your skin in transit – and your complexion will love holidays as much as you do.

BY PLANE
&nbsp

The problem: Dehydration and lacklustre skin.
&nbsp

The solution: We all know that dry, recycled aeroplane air seems to suck the moisture from skin. So pop our Rehydrating Discovery Collection, (containing a Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser, Rehydrating Ginseng Toner, Papaya Enzyme Peel, Hydra-Boost Day Cream Normal, Hydra Nourish Night Cream) - all in travel sizes that fall below the 100ml mark limit – in your hand luggage. Then be sure to pack our BIOTEC Skin Energising Day and Night Creams in your main bag to switch the skin’s energy and glow back on once you arrive at your destination.

BY CAR
&nbsp

The problem: Sunburn and pigmentation.
&nbsp

The solution: The power of the sun can be deceptive when you’re driving around in an air conditioned car for long periods of time – so you arrive at your destination looking burnt with tell-tale dark patches of pigmentation. Be sure to reapply our Liquid Layer SPF 30 often – then repair that damage with the White Brightening Even Tone Serum morning and night.
&nbsp

&nbsp

BY TRAIN
&nbsp

The problem: Breakouts.
&nbsp

The solution: There’s no nice way of saying this: public transport is riddled with germs. Touch something and you can easily transfer bacteria to your skin next time your hands come into contact with it – with the result of unsightly breakouts. Gently and effectively remove the day’s grime and make-up with our Smart Cleanse Micellar Water – then purify and rebalance skin with the Herbal Lavender Repair Mask twice a week.
&nbsp

&nbsp

ON FOOT
&nbsp

The problem: Sensitivity and dryness.
&nbsp

The solution: Wherever you go, holidays can involve a lot of walking – to the beach, in the wilds of the British countryside, around a city. Yet walking around in the great outdoors can take its toll on your skin. Wearing SPF is a given – but as well as the sun, there’s pollution, wind and changeable weather conditions to consider – all of which can leave your skin dry and sensitive. So arm yourself with our Liquid Layer SPF 30 – plus pack the Hydra-Boost Sensitive Day Cream.
