Beauty Hacks To Try On Your Next Getaway
Packing is such a bore. Discovering a smashed powder compact when you arrive at your destination is even less thrilling. We love an insider tip and luckily, Amanda Von Dem Hagen, skin specialist at Glo Skin Beauty UK, is happy to share her favourite travel tricks…
Cotton pad saviour
The nightmare is to get to your flight or destination and find that powder compact has broken into tiny little pieces – the worst. To prevent this from happening, place a cotton pad in your blush or bronzer compact - you want enough cushioning so that you can close the compact safely with the pad inside.
A contact lenses case makes the best miniature travel container. Each pod is just enough for single use application, if you don't wish to take the full product with you. Hair oil, hand sanitiser, eye cream and toothpaste are great fillers. To ensure you remember what's what, you can colour code the pods with nail varnish.
Avoid any messy spillages by swapping out for solid formulas whenever possible. When it comes to make-up remover, you should look out for a solid balm formula as opposed to liquids. Also, opt for a bar of facial soap instead of cleanser. This will last a lot longer and will also be more skin friendly under the sun when mixed with SPF.
Hair conditioner hero
Hair conditioner is a genius product as it’s multi-tasking. By packing this, you can leave the shaving cream at home, the same moisturising ingredients that hydrate the hair on your head can also soften the hair on any other area of your body.
This simple trick can be used when you're in the air to ensure a refreshed and relaxed face when you land. Some sheet masks already come in little travel size pods, so you can carry it in your hand luggage and apply as you would any other moisturiser and let it work its magic.
Ready soaked pads
Facial pads which are already soaked in key nourishing ingredients are perfect for in-flight care. They are portable to carry in your bag and perfect to reduce any oily skin breakouts, without carrying any extra products. The Glo Skin Beauty Clear Complexion Pads are infused with antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to treat congested skin leaving it calmer, shine-free and more balanced.
