Renew You: the holiday beauty essentials you need this summer
31st May 2022
The ultimate travel kit for sun-seeking beauty aficionados.
Bikini? Check. Beach read? Check. Beauty bag? Always a challenge. There’s too much to include, too many necessities. We’ve created the ultimate beach beauty kit to make filling your travel beauty bag entirely stress-free, from SPF that will leave your skin gleaming to hair masks that’ll soften your hair after the ocean breeze has been through it.
Soltan’s SPF range not only provides intense moisturisation and a unique antioxidant complex to keep skin gleaming, but has a maximum five-star UVA protection, saving you from skin damage. Each of these is lightweight, water-resistant, absorbs quickly into the skin and feels non-greasy on – Soltan Face Protect & Moisturise SPF50+, €5, is especially good under make-up.
With three different settings for sensitive teeth, deep cleaning and whitening, the Spotlight Oral Care Sonic Electric Toothbrush, €109.99, is a holy grail of toothbrushes, removing plaque and discoloration, with an endless battery life, a protective case for travelling and a guarantee of a better smile.
This shimmering mist sets make-up with a bronzed glow but also gives a deep, golden light to legs, collarbones, shoulders and arms, illuminating skin with a fresh-off-the-beach sheen.
We all love the golden, sun-kissed highlights that appear on holidays, or the salty natural beach wave after a dip in the sea, but our hair feels differently. Andrew Fitzsimons Repair Moisture Mask for Damaged Hair, €11.33, nourishes dry, damaged hair with ceramides and a protein-based complex to deeply condition the hair and leave it soft and shiny.
Keep a Tangle Teezer in your beach bag for post-swim detangling. This one is made for colour-treated, fine and fragile hair with soft and gentle brushes that don’t pull and cause less breakage.
No holiday beauty kit is complete without Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray, €5.50. It keeps your skin hydrated on a long, drying flight, soothes a sunburn and helps heal the skin during the post-burn peel, refreshes and cools you down in summer’s heat, depuffs your face after a long night of sangria, and is especially delicious on the skin if kept in the fridge.
The ampoule is the less embarrassing alternative to wearing a sheet mask on a flight and the lightest way to travel with just the right amount of serum. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler Replumping Hyaluronic Acid Ampoules, €24.99, plumps, hydrates and soothes the skin with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, while the sealed-in serum stays super potent and fresh.
This translucent dome of eucalyptus and prebiotic grape water is as pleasing on the eye as it feels on the skin – it’s soothing, cooling and minty, feels hydrating on the skin, keeps you fresh, and leaves no white cast or stickiness. It feels amazing on and one stick lasts for ages.
