The season of summer getaways is here! Whether you’re hitting the beach or the big city, make space in your suitcase for one of these five SkinCeuticals products that promise to keep your skin healthy, calm and clear on holiday.
The Daily Skin Refresher
SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser – shop
Travelling and sun bathing can make your skin feel dehydrated, so pack this ultra-mild creamy cleanser to quickly remove make-up, impurities, sweat and SPF from your skin morning and night. It won’t disrupt the lipid layer but it also won’t leave your skin feeling greasy, making it an ideal choice for all skin types during a sojourn to hotter climes. It can also be used on the eyes, meaning you won’t have to pack a separate eye make-up remover!
The Fool-Proof Face Protector
SkinCeuticals Sheer Mineral UV Defense SPF30 – shop
Packing a sunscreen in your travel bag is a given, so we won’t blather on about how important protecting your skin with an SPF during a sunny holiday is. All the SkinCeuticals sunscreens are amazing, so there isn’t a bad choice when it comes to finding the perfect SPF, but the Sheer Mineral is particularly good if you prefer your skin care to feel weightless. It’s translucent, lightweight and non-comedogenic, plus it uses only mineral UV filters so it won’t cause irritation.
The Parched Skin Quencher
SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier – shop
If you are planning on catching some rays during your trip, you need to do some damage control in order to keep your skin smooth and plump. UV rays can deplete moisture levels within the skin and affect the natural concentration of Hyaluronic Acid, making issues like fine lines and slackness more apparent. This expert serum not only hydrates the skin but increases the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin, helping to combat dry patches and damage caused by the sun.
The Post-Sun Soother
SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque – shop
Spending your days on the beach might be great for your mood, but your skin is likely to be left feeling a little depleted. Combat that dry, tight feeling with this soothing gel mask. Infused with active botanicals and Hyaluronic Acid, it quickly eases discomfort and restores suppleness to the skin while minimising redness and inflammation – which is perfect if you overdid it on the sun lounger. Slather it over the skin following a shower or leave it on overnight to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.
The Dehydrated Skin Fixer
SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque – shop
Another way to combat a parched complexion is with this ultra-hydrating mask. Much like the Phyto Corrective formula, this Hyaluronic Acid-packed gel can be used as a flash treatment or as an overnight moisturiser to aid tissue repair and combat dry, flaky skin. It can also be used on the body to ease tight, inflamed skin and can be reapplied whenever your skin needs relief.
The Unexpected Eye Hero
SkinCeuticals Mineral Eye UV Defense SPF30 – shop
Thought your face sunscreen was enough to protect your skin? Not so. The delicate skin on and around the eyes needs extra care but, luckily, SkinCeuticals have a specialist SPF just for this area. Using only mineral UV filters, this lightweight formula protects against both UVA and UVB rays, contains Ceramides to nourish and a sheer tint to minimise the appearance of uneven tone. Use it underneath the eye, on the brow bone and the eyelid for complete protection.
