When packing for a holiday, it’s important to consider the beauty items you’ll need to feel and look your best while you’re away. Here are some beauty items to consider:

Sunscreen: Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is crucial, so make sure to pack a high-quality sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Look for a water-resistant formula if you’ll be swimming or sweating. If you have oily skin, we suggest using Nimue’s SPF50 as it not only provides protection from UVA and UVB rays, infra-red, and blue light emitted from screens but also helps in mattifying the skin. For those with normal or dry skin, Nimue’s SPF40 is a better choice as it provides more hydration.

Moisturiser: Travel can be tough on your skin, so pack a hydrating moisturiser to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to use a day moisturiser and a separate moisturiser for the night. Night moisturisers are thicker and can effectively replenish the skin’s moisture overnight, preparing it for a lightweight moisturiser during the day.

Cleanser and makeup remover: Make sure to pack a gentle cleanser and makeup remover to keep your skin clean and fresh. Try to stay away from Micellar water and cleansing wipes as these can have negative effects on your skin and cause dryness and breakouts.

Makeup essentials: Bring your favourite makeup essentials, such as foundation, concealer, mascara, and lipstick. Opt for travel-sized versions to save space in your luggage. Try to avoid wearing make up during the day so that your skin can breathe and recover.

Haircare: Pack a travel-sized shampoo and conditioner, as well as any styling products you need. Consider using dry shampoo to extend the life of your hairstyle between washes.

Nail care: Pack a nail file incase of any last minute disasters and nail breakages. We recommend having a gel polish pedicure and manicure before you go away which can last up to two weeks or more without chipping or peeling, making it a great option for those who want to maintain a flawless manicure or pedicure for an extended period.

Travel-sized fragrance: Bring a travel-sized perfume or body spray to keep you smelling fresh throughout your trip.

Remember, when packing beauty items for a holiday, less is often more. Focus on bringing the essentials and leave any bulky or non-essential items at home.
