5 Beauty essentials for travel. I want to share my 5 beauty essentials for great skin.  I think this is the worst time of year for our poor skin.  The harsh cold winter weather takes its toll.  Also, if like me you travel a lot this makes your poor skin dry and dehydrated.  The dreaded little lines around the eyes are in need of serious help!

CAUDALIE GRAPE WATER

I have used Caudalie products for years.  I love the pure, organic ingredients with no nasty chemicals in the products.  This Grape water contains 100% organic grapes, is preservative free, fragrance free and Caudalie are against animal testing!  Also contains no nasties such as Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Phlatates or animal origin ingredients.  Fabulous, music to my ears and yours too I hope.  Be careful what you are putting on you skin.  Read labels and be aware.

I spray this wonderful Grape Water liberally over my face to rehydrate after running, when on an aeroplane indeed throughout the day!  Your skin feels instantly hydrated and revived.

CAUDALIE PREMIER CRU eye cream

Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream

The latest product from Caudalie is this luxurious eye cream!  It now has a permanent place on my dressing table.  The results are instant, the crepy skin around my eyes is firmer and looks transformed and hydrated. As always with Caudalie, there are no nasty Parabens etc and no animal testing!  Give it a try, click on the Caudalie link on the right hand side of my page.

Argh! No make up.  Skin looks good though.  Do you like natural products without harmful chemicals and that are not tested on animals?  Me too, and I try and use these products as much as I can.  Be aware of what we are putting on our skin as well as into our bodies.  Talking of which I use a great vitamin from Solgar Skin, Hair and Nails.  Again this is great for travelling, especially when it is difficult to get a healthy balanced diet on travel days.

My 5 essentials plus Vitamins from Solgar

NUXE BODY CONTOURING SERUM

Another new discovery I want to share with you because IT WORKS!  An anti cellulite treatment that firms and contours and it really does work.  Just slather it on your body twice a day and get travel ready.

WOMN ARGAN AND ROSE BODY OIL AND ARGAN AND NEROLI ANTI AGEING CREAM

I love finding new beauty discoveries that really work.  The Womn products really deliver great results!  I am writing a whole article about them so won’t go into much detail.  the hair and body oil I use all over my body for super soft skin.  Also the anti ageing cream has wonderful results.  I even tried it out on my husband and the results are astonishing.  They are all organic and handmade in the UAE.

I hope you enjoy trying some of these.  Let me know if you do and what results you get!

Travel Wardrobe for Asia 

I’m busy planning what to take with me to The Philippines.  Obviously, it will be hot and humid so I have to rethink my beauty regime too.  There is nothing worse than getting hot and sweaty with make up sliding down your face!

My latest discovery and one I will definitely put into my suitcase is Jason Wu for Caudalie eau de beaute Beauty Elixir for a smooth and glowing complexion.  This arrived in the post just as I arrived back from the sunny Cote d’azur with skin dehydrated by the sun, sea and salt.  The soothing scent is divine and my skin is instantly revived and looks radiant.

What do you think? I just sprayed it on before taking the photo above with me and Zarya!

I will use if every day as part of my skincare routine and will put it into my hand luggage to keep my face hydrated on the long journey.  If you want to buy some for yourself click on the link on the righthand side. With thanks to Caudalie UK.

I have the most luscious Serge Lutyens scent that perfectly evokes Asia for me that I just discovered called Nuit de Cellophane so this is going with me too.

What to Wear in The Philippines

My top tip for what to wear in very hot and humid countries is wear as little as possible!  I only pack lightweight natural fabrics in Cotton, Linen and Silk.

Lise Charmel Chemise

What do you think of my new Lise Charmel Chemise, bought in Galeries Lafayette?  I think it will be perfect for a hot climate.  My latest discovery for swimwear is a very inexpensive brand that I found on http://www.asos.com  Love them because they have big cup sizes, YAY! So shout out for Wolf and Whistle

Top Tip to fight off mosquitoes Did you know that mossies detest Vitamin E? take a Vitamin E supplement and slather yourself in Vitamin E cream and they will go a bite someone else!
