Problems of a travelling beauty
Travelling can be amazing. You see stunning places, discover animals you never knew existed and try mouth-watering cuisines… but it can also be a massive pain in the butt for beauty lovers.
Sure, a once-in-a-lifetime experience beats any beauty blunder, but if you can avoid encountering any of these #firstworldproblems, your travels will be all the more sweeter.
#1 Your shampoo leaked and now everything in your toiletry bag is covered in gooey liquid.
Solution: LUSH Jumping Juniper Solid Shampoo Bar – this baby will remain solid until you’re ready to lather.
#2 The thought of your toothbrush rolling around in a bag full of other products gives you the heebie-jeebies.
Solution: Toothbrush cover – an easy way to protect your bristles from any nasties.
#3 You’re not going to have access to a shower for two days. TWO DAYS!
Solution: Mitchum Clinical Deodorant Pure Fresh – providing up to 48 hours of sweat protection, this deodorant is a travel must-have.
#4 Your eyes are so red from the lack of sleep on the flight - thank you crying baby.
Solution: Murine® Clear Eyes – with a few quick drops (and blinks), and you’ll be looking lively again.
#5 You’re sporting mozzie bites the size of golf balls, and they’re so itchy, you’d really like to roll around in a pile of hay.
Solution: Thursday Plantation 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil – this compact bottle not only soothes bites, but it can also be used as an antiseptic for minor cuts and breakouts.
#6 When your man won’t let you pack a hair-dryer because it takes up too much room.
Solution: Hot muk smoothing serum – take that, humidity!
#7 Nobody realises how much they enjoy their daily number twos until they’re suddenly taken away.
Solution: Metamucil Fibre Caps – they’ll help to get things moving again without going overboard.
#8 Riding a camel to the hotel seemed like a great idea, until you find out that the bumpy ride left you with a cracked blush/bronzer.
Solution: Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer and Natio Cream Blush Stick – stick to liquid and cream versions of your favourite ‘enhancers’. If you find them in stock form, that’s a room-saving bonus.
#9 Your skin is so dry, you’re too scared to smile in photos in case it cracks.
Solution: Besides slathering on moisturiser every chance you get, proactively pack one of the Essenzza Health Moisturise + Smooth silk masks. Though there are three masks in a pack, each comes in an individual sachet so you can easily squeeze one into your bag. Plus, you don’t need a bathroom to use it!
#10 Dilemma: no nail polish can withstand a six-week trip but the thought of busted bottles in your bag has you hyperventilating.
Solution: Elegant Touch Envy Wraps – Colour Wash Mix & Match – no glass here, just stick on and go!
