Different countries can be seen in a whole new light over the winter months, swapping sunglasses for scarves and cocktails for mulled wine. Experiencing the festivities overseas offers a new perspective on your favourite sightseeing spots, and it’s the one time of year where a little chill is more than welcome on your travels.
But how to pack when your beauty routine is all out of whack? We’ve rounded up our top tips to keep you looking and feeling beautiful on winter getaways.
If you’re a lover of extensive make-up removal routines, it’s time to minimise the amount of product you take away with you. When an extra layer of mascara or shimmer is the order of the day, the Mini Make Up Eraser gets it all off with nothing but water. This revolutionary little eraser – which easily folds up to take up minimal hand luggage space – removes 100% of make-up with just water, gently exfoliating and cleansing pores.
When cold temperatures meet low humidity, static electricity can cause flyaway hair to take on a life of its own – especially when you’ve been enjoying the novelty of a lovely woolly hat for a day of sight-seeing. One essential tip is not to wash your hair too much – this will strip it of its natural oils that keep hair moisturised and can battle that unruly static. To give your hair some added moisture, try applying Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse to the lengths and ends, with nourishing Macademia Oil and repairing Argan Oil to keep strands in check.
If your travels are taking you further afield this winter and jetlag is threatening to be an unwanted Christmas gift, make sure you pack the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works. The handy little spray promises to aid with a great night’s sleep, helping you nod off faster and wake feeling more refreshed, with an aromatherapeutic superblend of lavender, vetivert and camomile. And if that doesn’t quite work, a touch of the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat illuminating concealer will magic away dark circles with an exclusive secret formula – also perfect for any festive late nights!
Add the finishing touch with a wonderfully musky winter scent to complement that spiced mulled wine. We’re loving the Calvin Klein Obsession for Men fragrance, with a fiery, amber scent featuring a blend of botanicals, spices and rare woods that even Santa will be putting on his wish list.
And finally, it wouldn’t be a winter break without an in-flight celebration. Share a bottle of our Nicolas Feuillate Champagne with friends or family and make it a trip to remember!
