The summer holidays are almost here and for many of us it's time to think about packing our bags for a little time away, if not a little time out.
When I'm packing for our 2 week annual beach holiday it has to be simple and light-weight. I don’t have the space nor the time to spend hours on my skin and so I make sure to only include products which will keep my skin in top shape, quick smart.
Want to know what I pack? Here’s a sneak peak into my travel bag and my top skincare picks for healthy summer skin:
I'm so excited to finally have these mini sizes because it makes packing all my skincare products into one cosmetic bag for the family so much easier. It includes all the essentials: cleanser, toner, serum and moisturiser. The Tone + Hydrate Spritz is heaven after a long day in the sun - sooo cooling. The Repair Face Serum is also a fave at the end of the day as it quickly soothes any sun damage and helps to keep my pigmentation in check.
Whilst this is only SPF15, this is what I have on my face at every other time of day that I'm not at the beach (which is when I'll be wearing SPF30). You see you are always getting incidental sun exposure and so its super important to make sure you're always wearing some sun protection. I love this lotion because it not only hydrates and protects, but it contains ingredients to help reduce pigmentation, keep my skin clear and youthful for as long as possible.
Not forgetting the body, our Ultimate SOS Balm is what the rest of my skin gets lathered in. At the end of the day this balm can save your skin in all kinds of ways. Not only can you use it as an all over body moisturiser, on any skin flare ups (eczema, dermatitis, rosacea), but it’s great for bites, sun damaged skin and pigmentation. It’s essential on my body after a long day at the beach when my skin is uber dehydrated. I also slather my kids in it after a little too much sun or when they get inundated by mozzies. This is most certainly one product you will never see me without this summer. And it now comes in a super cute mini size which you can pop in your beach bag - so handy.
Spending days at the beach with the family, applying layers of zinc-based sunscreen to prevent sunburn and all that comes with excessive sun exposure, I will use my 2 in 1 Exfoliant + Mask every 2nd day to keep my skin clear and my pores unblocked. It’s so refreshing on skin and leaves it feeling silky soft and glowing. LOVE having clean, make-up free skin all summer long.
Hope you can take some well-earned time off this summer and enjoy a little beach time too.

The skin on our bodies is often neglected as we tend to focus on our face and figure our bodies will just look after themselves. Big mistake!
Because our skin is our largest organ and most of what we put on it gets absorbed, choosing high-quality products for the body is so very important. They need to be 100% natural and as organic as possible, to avoid causing skin reactions, disrupting our hormones, and not adding to the toxin burden on our liver.
There are also some simple things you can do to look after your body that will reduce dryness, stop eczema from flaring up and keep it glowing.
