5 Must-Have Beauty Essentials for your next holiday

By September 1, 2017Current

TL;DR – Solving your #1stworldproblem 

Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to attend a special session organised by The New Savvy and Park Regis Singapore, and heard how successful and savvy business travellers like Anna Haotanto (CEO of The New Savvy), Jack Chua (GM of Park Regis), Krystal Choo (CEO of Wander) and Rachel Lim (Co-founder of Love, Bonito) juggle work and play-on-the-go!

From packing a good pair of shoes to bringing along full-sized toiletries, all of them need their must-haves that will bring them from meetings to dinners, down to casual shopping days when they’re on their trips.

We bring you Unscrambled’s Beauty Guide to 5 Must-Have Beauty Essentials for your next holiday!

1. Sun Protection

Sun protection for your face is a definite must, as the sun will take a toll on your skin whichever part of the world you are. Whether you are relaxing on the beach or walking about along the streets, we’re sure you want to keep away the dark spots and burns. A good sunscreen is one that is lightweight, highly moisturising and absorbs quickly without your skin feeling sticky. Make sure you use one with high protection against UVA and UVB.

Whatever the weather is, wearing sun protection is important all year round.

2. Body Lotion or Moisturiser

If you usually do not pack in a moisturiser or lotion when you travel, think again! A good moisturiser or lotion will keep your skin soft and supple while restoring moisture and elasticity. Whether you are spending hours on the plane or after a refreshing shower back in your hotel at the end of a long day of shopping, remember to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise and keep fine lines at bay.

3. Hair Serum
It is just as important to look after your hair while on your travels. Whether you are off to somewhere hot and humid or cold and dry, give your locks some well-deserved love and keep the frizz at bay. If you’re worried about your hair frizzing after a long flight, keep a small bottle of hair serum accessible in your hand-carry and apply it when you arrive at your destination.

4. Tinted Lip balm

Lip balm is another travel essential to remember. While you are at it, opt for a tinted one! Tinted lip balms serve double duty adding a hint of colour to your pucker while moisturising it. Say goodbye to pale lips and look radiant instantly with a natural, laid-back style. The next time you think about which shade of lipstick to pack, go for a tinted lip balm and minimise the number of items to pack in makeup bag.

5. Wet Wipes

Wet wipes are a life saver during holidays and you can never bring along enough. Taking you from the city to the beach, wet wipes serve so many purposes. From refreshing your skin after a long flight and cooling sweaty skin in the sun, to wiping your hands after a meal, they are hardworking multitaskers that are vital for all your travels.

    Great post about travel essentials. As a frequent traveler I find it quite difficult to organize all my travel essentials therefore I always go for a travel essentials pack where You get all the products you need packed and sealed together so you don’t have to worry about whats missing and whats not. Would highly recommend GNC travel essentials bundle for all frequent travelers that hate packing. Checkout the link below.
