The holiday season is going to end in a week… It's that time of the year when school kids and their parents plan fun trips to recharge their batteries and refresh themselves as they need to go back to schools in a week's time.
Be it a relaxing or an adventurous trip to the cool Himalayan states or popular sea beaches, these vacations are great for learning new skills and experiencing new adventures. However, in the excitement of planning our vacations, we often ignore the essential care our skin and hair need during changing environment.
"Tanning, rough skin and other skin and hair problems can cause great discomfort when you are travelling during summers," said Padma Shri awardee and beauty diva Shahnaz Husain.
EeYuva collates some travel beauty essentials tips doled out by this beauty expert, especially for our readers. Have a look!
Travelling Light Is An Advantage
You need items that are compact and portable. Get yourself a spacious shoulder bag and two small plastic lined cases. Your beauty aids should be within easy reach so, that you can freshen up your makeup and alight from your journey looking well groomed.
Hair Care Essentials
You can just brush and arrange would be good, while for long hair, take along headband and hair clips, to keep your hair tidy. Remember to take a scarf along to protect your hair from over-exposure to the sun, as well as from wind and dust. You will need it if you are out motoring, boating or even walking by the seaside or hills.
You also need skin and hair care essentials, like cleanser, moisturiser, leave-in conditioner and hair serum. A hairpiece can provide instant glamour.
If you are holidaying in a big city and expect to meet people, you will need a few makeup essentials to get an awesome look for dining out which is neither too casual nor too dressy.
The lighting at night demands more colour, so include darker shades of lipstick, blush-on, eyeshadow and mascara.
For your makeup, carry powder compact, eye pencil, kajal stick and lipsticks that are suitable for day wear. Perhaps, a lip gloss will do. By the beach, you need makeup products that are 'waterproof" or 'long lasting' and provide a matte finish.
On a vacation, one probably needs to carry a sunscreen lotion. An anti-tan broad-spectrum sunscreen or sunblock would be good. The effects of sun exposure are greater by the waterside, or near snow because water and snow are reflective surfaces.
Remember to take a few tissues. If you have oily skin, or the weather is hot and humid, pre-moistened tissues are what you need. Carry them in your handbag when you go out, to clean and refresh your skin.
Don't forget to take your perfume, one or two good accessories and a neutral evening purse that goes with your dressy outfits. These will help to add the finishing touches.
There is nothing more enjoyable than getting away from daily mundane living and unwind. If you have taken care of your travel essentials, all you have to do is relax and enjoy your holiday…
