The best skin is dewy, but the effects of the sun and omitting your usual skincare routine while away on holiday can wreak havoc on it. Keep your face fresh and hydrated by sticking to a four-step hydrating regime while you’re away: toning, concentrating hydration, moisturising and spritzing.
Tone: Use a calming and hydrating toner after cleansing to balance your skin’s pH and soothe any inflammation caused by scrubbing, which may cause skin to flake.
Concentrate: Applying a concentrated hydrating serum is the best way to restore and replenish your skin’s moisture. It prevents the evaporation of water from the skin and infuses it with moisture for a hydration boost.
Moisturise: Never skip this step! If you’re looking to retain all the hydrated goodness in your skin, then sealing it in with a moisturiser to prevent the drying effects of sun and wind is essential. Look for 24-hour barrier protection when choosing a moisturiser so that you don’t need to top up.
Spritz: Few products are as fun and effective to use as a hydrating spray. It immediately alleviates the tightness caused by dry skin and gives your face a hit of nourishing moisture.
