Essential beach holiday skin and hair products

Tips for maintaining glossy hair and well-nourished skin on a beach holiday, blog by Milly Nolan on MiNDFOOD.

Essential beach holiday skin and hair products

To avoid my suitcase tipping well over the weight limit, I was begrudgingly very selective about what beauty products I took with me on a recent trip to sunny Fiji.

High on the list were skincare products that promised to protect my skin and hair from the harsh effects of summer weather, while my make-up bag was whittled down to just a few of my favourite products to achieve a natural, beach-holiday look.

BODY SUNSCREEN

True Solutions All Day Moisture SPF 30 Untinted Cream

This moisturising sunscreen is light and creamy in texture and contains ingredients that help prevent sunspots, RRP $50.

FACE SUNSCREEN

Neutrogena Age Shield Face SPF 70

Specially designed for the face, this sunscreen isn’t at all oily and even better, it features a powerful blend of antioxidants that help combat free radical damage and signs of accelerated aging, RRP $23.

BODY SELF-TAN

Le Tan Sport SPF 30

Perfect for the beach, sports or other activities, this sunscreen is a spray-on transparent gel that dries quickly and leaves no sticky residue. It offers both UVA and UVB protection, as well as two hours water resistance. RRP $26.

FACE SELF-TAN

Lancome Soleil Flash Bronzer Tinted Self Tanning Face Cream

Instead of exposing your face to harmful UV rays, apply this creamy self-tan to the face and neck for an instant, natural looking glow, RRP $52.

BODY MOISTURISER

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion

With cooling menthol, this moisturising lotion feels great after a day in the sun and helps relieve dry, itchy skin, keeping it hydrated for up to 24 hours, RRP $23.

SHAMPOO

Redken UV Rescue After-Sun Shampoo

After a swim in the pool or sea (a hard day at the office), use this shampoo to deeply cleanse the hair and to remove any mineral, chlorine or salt-deposits as well as restoring any lost moisture, RRP $29.

CONDITIONER

Matrix Biolage Sunsorials Sun Repair Treatment

Used in replace of a normal conditioner, this 3-minute treatment is specifically designed to help mend hair exposed to the harmful effects of sun, chlorine and seawater. Your hair will feel soft and luscious afterwards, RRP $29.

LEAVE-IN HAIR TREATMENT

Kerastase Soleil Micro-Voile Protecteur

This non-greasy spray should be applied before and during exposure to the sun so to protect the colour and condition of your hair, while maintaining its shine, RRP $36.

FRIZZ-RELIEF SPRAY

 

VO5 Frizz Relief Elixir Miracle Mist

Great for curly hair that is prone to frizzing, this lightweight leave-in conditioning spray, infused with Satin Silk extract, is perfect for detangling locks that are knotty from swimming in the sea or the pool. It also helps protect against heat styling, locking in vital moisture so that the hair is left feeling soft and looking shiny. RRP $7.

TINTED MOISTURISER

Clarins Super Restorative Tinted Cream SPF 20

For use instead of moisturiser and foundation, this tinted cream has radiance-boosting pigments that brighten the complexion, giving the skin a subtle golden glow without looking like you are wearing make-up, RRP $110.

WATERPROOF MASCARA

Elizabeth Arden Double Density Mascara

Great in the hot and humid weather, this smudge-proof mascara thickens and separates lashes, RRP $44.

BRONZING POWDER

Revlon Bronzing Face Powder

The three shades in this compact can be used individually to highlight, define and sculpt the contours of your face or used together for an all-over sunkissed glow, RRP $27.

LIP GLOSS

Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15

This pretty pink gloss has moisturising ingredients that condition the lips and help ease dryness and chapping. With SPF 15 in it, your lips can shine during the day without burning, RRP $36.

NAIL LACQUER

OPI Nail Lacquer in Mod-ern Girl

This season’s hottest colour for well-manicured nails, coral is the perfect accompaniment to tanned feet and pretty sandals, RRP $22.95
