My holiday skincare routine. I brought everything in my current routine and even mixed a new formula to test out!

I took the photograph above during a recent holiday, as unpacking my products on the first night got me to thinking about whether you can pare back your products for holidays or would that set you back in your progress?

Read on for my thoughts on packing your skincare products for different types of trips…..

Holidaying Abroad/flights: you can travel a little lighter if you want to but really as the Skin Essentials products are all concentrated and lightweight you shouldn’t need to. Recommendation: bring and use your usual routine. If you are flying away for your break, you will be happy to know that all of the Skin Essentials serums and the SPF are in containers sized well below the airline security maximum of 100ml so no worries there. The larger size creams and Salicylic cleanser will have to be decanted into smaller containers for flying. Going on the ferry? Great, bring everything 🙂

Festival: you get a pass from me on this one, just cleanser , a microfibre cloth and SPF will see you through 🙂

Backpacking/Camping: you probably need to pare back as much as possible if you are backpacking so bring cleanser, microfibre cloth that dries quickly, SPF and Daily Nutrient Serum to maintain skin while away then book an anti-oxidant repairing facial for as soon as you get back!

If you are dealing with any ongoing skin issues such as acne or rosacea you really should bring your full regime wherever you go as these are progressive treatments and missing out for even a few days can set you back. Don’t forget that SPF needs to be reapplied every 2 hours in hot weather to remain effective and that the more anti-oxidants in your skincare the better to help prevent and reduce sun damage. Your Skin Essentials by Mariga products are rich in multi-anti-oxidants, particularly the Lipid Repair Concentrate, Hydra Collagen Serum and Daily Nutrient Serum so don’t leave them at home where they can’t do you any good!

Enjoy your holidays

Mariga 🙂
