The 100ml Rule
Airports allow a maximum of 100ml of liquid (per item) in your hand luggage, so don’t make the mistake of stashing your beauty goods in your handbag only to have them taken off you by airport security. You can find many of your favourite beauty products available in mini or trial sizes, or alternatively decant your products into empty travel bottles.
Travelling can be a dehydrating business that can play havoc with your skin, so keep a bottle of water handy and sip it regularly to keep thirst at bay. Aid hydration from the outside too, by moisturising your skin before you travel and packing a small mist bottle filled with water in your handbag for a refreshing spritz whenever you feel the urge.
Just because the sun is shining, this doesn't mean your skin has to. Banish sweat and excess oil with a sweeping of translucent powder over your finished look, then stash some blotting paper in your handbag to dab away excess shine on-the-go.
With space and weight at a limit, now is not the time to fill your suitcase with the entire contents of your bathroom! Get smart and opt for multi-purpose products instead. For example, balms are a great all-rounder for everything from chapped lips to dry patches to treating your cuticles, while a natural body oil acts as an effective after-sun as well as a daily body moisturiser.
Less is More
While we all love the sun it can play havoc with a full face of make-up. Rather than spending an hour at your mirror only to have your finished look melt down your face within five minutes, work out which products are essential and which ones you can do away with. There’s a lot to be said for a dash of concealer, a slick of mascara, a flush of blush and a natural sun-kissed glow.
