Pack a gentle face wash that has nourishing oils in its ingredient list. Opt for a shower gel rather than soap. In case you are vacationing at a place that has hard running water, this switch will be a life-saver.
Dr Sheth says, “Look for cleansers that have deep cleansing agents like coconut oil or almond oil, and nourishing ingredients like rosehip seed extracts, and vitamin E.”
A deep moisturising cream is ideal if you are in an extremely cold place, whereas a gel-based moisturiser works well for tropical climates. Always have a lip balm with SPF in your bag, whether you are on a holiday or not.
