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).

Do not underestimate the sea or its waters. Saltwater dries your hair out quicker than a shrivelled prune, while sandy grits get stuck in your scalp. Hardly a comforting thought. If your hair is too gritty to even shampoo, run a pump of normal conditioner through it, shampoo the sand and saltwater away, then relax for 10 minutes with this hair mask.
