1. Always carry a cleanser and moisturiser
Your skincare routine is heavily influenced by the weather and the location you are in. Products that may work for your skin during winter or monsoon may not work during summer. You have to reconsider your products after planning your trip and before packing your bags.
You can skip products like exfoliator and serums until you come back from the trip. However, carrying a cleanser and a moisturiser is must during summer. A facewash will ensure that all the dirt and grime in your skin is cleansed well. Get yourself the L'Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Cleanser Foam which not just cleanses your skin but also exfoliates it removing all the impurities trapped due to sweating.
Regardless of how sweaty you get during summer vacations; you need to ensure that your skin is not dehydrated and gets maximum nourishment. Choose a lightweight moisturiser that will provide nourishment to your skin in dry and humid weather. Moisturise your skin with the L'Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Day Cream with SPF 17
which works on your dark spots and gives you radiant skin. It has a super lightweight formula and is enriched with SPF 17. However, do not skip sunscreen in summer even if your moisturiser contains SPF.
2. Never skip using a sunscreen
You will discover new places, try new delicacies and also get exposed to the harmful UV rays at the same time while travelling on your vacation trip. The importance of sunscreen during summer cannot be ignored. Sunscreen in summer will safeguard your skin from UV Rays, dust and pollution like any other season. So, apply sunscreen before heading outside and reapply it after every 2 hours to avoid any sun damage. Pick a light sunscreen in summer that will easily penetrate in your skin especially if you’re going camping. Don’t forget to carry sun protection accessories like sunglasses and hat.
You can pick a sunscreen that focuses on your dark spots and wrinkles and brightens your skin. The L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Bright & Clear sunscreen is infused with Niacinamide and enriched with SPF 50. This is the best sunscreen for dry skin and for women who have dull skin during summer.
If you have an uneven skin tone, we recommend you get a non-greasy sunscreen that focus on dark spots and wrinkles and helps correct your skin tone. You can try using a tinted sunscreen like the L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Correct & Protect sunscreen that also boosts skin regeneration. This sunscreen in summer blends well with your skin, protects it from sun damage and makes it even at the same time.
If you have an oily skin type, you do not want to use a sunscreen that will make you sweat more during summers. We suggest that you get yourself a lightweight mattifying sunscreen like the L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Matte & Fresh Sunscreen that controls oil and sebum and gives a dry matte finish to your skin even in dry and humid weather. This is the best sunscreen for oily skin as it has a powerful combination of SPF 50+ PA++++ broad spectrum protection against UV rays.
If you have dry and parched skin, we recommend you to get a sunscreen which also has moisturising properties to give your skin the hydration it deserves. The L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Moist & Fresh which is enriched with the goodness of hyaluronic acid and has a combination of SPF 50+ PA++++ broad spectrum protection against UV rays. This is the best sunscreen for dry skin as it moisturises your skin and makes it plump. It will keep your skin hydrated throughout your summer trip.
3. Carry a facial mist spray
You should carry a refreshing facial mist spray while travelling on your summer trip. It helps you tackle the summer heat and soothes your skin giving it ultimate hydration.
4. Avoid using hotel products
Who doesn’t love taking free products from hotels? But soaps and facewashes offered by hotels are often harsh on your skin. Even if the products are branded, they could be expired and cause severe damage to your skin. Avoid using these products and stick to your daily skincare routine.
5. Be smart and get travel sized containers
Carrying multiple products from your skincare routine in your luggage can be challenging and make it heavier than expected. However, not carrying these products on your vacation trip is not really an option. Invest in travel sized containers and fill them with your products. You can carry only a limited quantity which does not weigh much. You can also purchase travel friendly pouches of these products.
