I'm sure many of us have been on holiday over the past few months or spent time at the beach. We all know the importance of wearing sunscreen whilst the weather is hot but what about when we return home? Looking after your skin not only keeps it healthy but can make your tan last longer too! Read on to find out what my favourite products are to use when I get back from holiday...
A gentle face wash is a must after sun exposure. Many of us use exfoliating washes which will not only rub away your tan but will also irritate skin. I love this Simple one and I also take the travel size on holiday with me to use instead of face wipes as they dry out quickly.
Hair Conditioning Treatment
My hair felt like straw when I got back from holiday thanks to a mix of sun exposure and too much time in the water! Dyed hair is so easy to ruin so I've spent the last two weeks using deep conditioners and oil and luckily, it's back to what it used to look like. Trips to the hairdressers are expensive so don't ruin it by not looking after your hair properly. I love the Elasticizer by Philip Kingsley and leave it on overnight.
My skin always feels a bit dry after flights and so I always use lots of moisturiser. This one by Caudalie is one of my favourites. It smells amazing and is just about small enough to pop into your handbag.
Milk Body Wash
I was military in putting on sunscreen this year so luckily I didn't get burnt but if you did, a milk based gel or lotion is your best friend. It soothes the skin, creates a layer of protein and reduces the risk of peeling. Rituals is a fabulous skincare brand and this shower gel is one of their best products.
Bronzer & Highlighter
A good bronzer and highlighter will enhance your tan and make you glow even more. I've mentioned this duo from Bourjois many times and it still remains one of my makeup bag staples.
