I've been trying to practice a pack light rule - who likes lugging around two exfoliants, two types of cleansers, and five different kinds of serums while you're on holiday? Here's a quick tip: DO NOT opt for extra check-in luggage when you're flying. Carry-on 7kg baggage? Consider it done in a weekender, with 3kg to spare.
A beach getaway promises plenty of vitamin D, harmful UV rays, sand, and saltwater. Be sure to pack these essentials for your skin's worst enemy and best friend (depending on your desire to tan).
Ministry of Strip Ice Cream
Let’s say you followed the cardinal rule: SPF, SPF, SPF. Depending on your skin type and frequency of exposure to the sun (which, let’s face it, on a beach holiday it’s at least five hours of sun’s out, buns out). This creamy rich cream soothes your burns, on top of dry spots and post-shaving skin. Extremely multi-purpose!
