The best beauty products for travelling are the ones that leave your skin soft, supple and hydrated.

Stay away from heavy foundations or pigmented eyeliner as these tend to melt in the sun. Instead, choose lightweight formulas and natural makeup that is easily absorbed.

Here are 8 key beauty products that will leave you looking fresh-faced and glowing:

1. To Save Face SPF 30 

First and foremost: protect your skin from the sun with a good moisturiser. We love Mecca’s To Save Face SPF moisturiser as its lightweight formular is easily absorbed and has a matte-finish.

2. Dermalogica Total Eye Care SPF 15

Late nights, long flights and too much sun can leave delicate skin looking wrinkled and dehydrated. Dab a small amount Dermalogica Total Eye Care under your eyes each day. Its peach tones conceal dark circles while the SPF adds a layer of protection.

3. Benefit Brow Zings

Love this little BENEFIT brow shaping kit (pictured)! Define your eyebrows, apply some definition around your eyes/lashes and keep your brows looking slick. It’s a must-have!

4. Nivea Sun Protect lip balm

Another sun-protector! Keep your lips feeling soft and smooth with Nivea Sun Protect SPF Lip Balm. It also helps ward off cold-sores.

5. bareMinerals READY mineral foundation

By day you won’t need anything on your face – particularly as you’ll be reapplying sunscreen. But at night, you might want to de-shine and cover up. BareMinerals Solid Foundation delivers natural, hydrating coverage that’s perfect for hot climates.

6. John Freida Frizz-Ease

You won’t have a hairdryer or straighteners with you, so take a small tube of John Frieda Frizz Ease serum to help fight frizz and smooth unruly curls. There are lots of options depending on hair type but I’d recommend buying a serum with UV protection if travelling somewhere hot!

7. Clean & Clear Purifying Cleanser

With all that suncream and travelling in dusty, polluted cities, your skin will need to be kept super-clean at night. We love  Clean & Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash 150 ml
cleansers it really does give you that deep-clean feeling!

8. Bobbi Brown Corrector

If you suffer from dark circles under your eyes, apply a touch of Bobbi Brown Corrector over the top of your Dermalogica eye care. It’s by far the best I’ve tried and it doesn’t dry up in the sun.
