Astringent

Sweat and humidity tend to make the skin oily. This means your face is susceptible to dirt and pollutants, making it more vulnerable to acne. Nobody wants to be dealing with breakouts, especially when on a trip. This is when astringent steps in. 

Apply astringent on your face with the help of a cotton pad after a quick cleanse with a face wash. Better still, keep astringent wipes handy to clean your face anywhere and anytime.

And it works best for oily skin.

Toner 

If you have normal to dry skin, astringent might not be the best option. It can strip your skin of essential oils, leaving it excessively dry. Instead, resort to a toner to keep your skin clean and clear this season. Just dab it with a cotton pad to give your skin a thorough cleanse after using a face wash. Offering the healing properties of glycerin, it moisturises and gives a firmer appearance to your skin, without adding any sheen to it. Toners also help balance the pH levels keeping acne and inflammation at bay. 

It does the work for sensitive skin.

Hand Cream

Travelling means you will be spending a lot of time in public places. This naturally translates to frequent hand washes, or a constant use of hand-sanitisers. 

Soap and alcohol-laden sanitisers tend to dry hands. To avoid your skin from cracking due to dehydration, keep a hand cream within reach, and apply it every time you wash your hands. Don’t miss pampering your nails as they are more vulnerable to getting weak and brittle. Just a quick massage will keep your hands soft and supple. 

Sunscreen 

we are well-versed with the damaging effect the sun has on our skin, and bodies. Sunscreens are popular for preventing tan, and hence are mostly limited to face and neck application. Contrary to this belief, it is important to apply sunscreen on all body parts that are exposed to sun rays, as its fundamental purpose is to protect the skin from sun damage. 

Opt for a cream for your face and a lotion to slather on your body. Anything between SPF 30 and 50 should do the trick. 

Setting spray 

To keep your makeup from sweating, just spray it over your face after you are done with your makeup. Keep the bottle eight to ten inches away from your face while spraying. 

Moreover, oil-controlling setting sprays are also now available, and is suitable for people with oily skin, who prefer a dewy finesse over a powdered matte appearance.

Dry Shampoo

If there’s one thing very uncertain about travelling, it is when you’ll have the time to take a long, luxurious shower. If you think your summer adventure will leave you with little to no time for regular hair washes, or may involve activities that lead to perspiration, get a hold of a little bottle of this wonder. 

Dry shampoo is an oil-absorbing powder that helps your scalp and hair get rid of dirt and excess oil, without the whole shampooing and conditioning ritual. Just sprinkle it onto your scalp and massage it for about a minute. Brush it down the length if you prefer your mane smooth. 

Lip Balm with SPF

Lips are ten times more sensitive than your skin, and UV rays affect your lips as they do the rest of your face. Hence, it important you shield your lips too. Upgrade your regular lip balm with a variant that offers SPF so that you can click selfies with that perfect pout. 

If you have all these in you travel kit then you’re pretty much all set for summer vacation, along with good skin and hair for those Instagram selfies.
