With summer in full swing many of us will be getting ready to jet off to exotic climes - or even enjoying a staycation in good old Britain. Whatever you have planned this summer, it’s important to plan and pack the right skincare for your holiday, after all luggage space is precious and no one wants to be stuck paying baggage fees!


No matter how many times you think about it or even write out a checklist, it’s inevitable you’ll forget something when packing for your holiday. Although it’s good to pack only the bare essentials, it’s also important to understand the needs of your skin, especially if you’re lucky enough to be visiting a hot country where sun protection and hydration are vital. No matter how big or small your beauty travel bag is, make sure it’s packed to perfection this summer with our top tips, tricks and product recommendations.

Superb Sun Protection


Moisturisers and make-up products that contain SPF are a must have, not only on holiday but everyday, no matter what the weather. Even on a cloudy day, UV rays can damage unprotected skin so ensure you’re using at least an SPF15 throughout the year!


While on holiday, protecting your face from sun exposure is vital but it’s also key to stick to light formulations and avoid wearing heavy makeup to give your skin a much-needed break! Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15 is perfect for using in hot weather, the lightweight cream quickly absorbs into your skin to help hydrate whilst balancing the complexion for a fresh-faced appearance. And, if you’re not a fan of going completely barefaced on holiday, finish off your beach-beautiful look with a lick of Perfecting Tint . This tinted moisturiser contains a subtly pigment, colouring the skin to suit your complexion and ensuring natural radiance that lasts all day.

Beautiful Body Care


It’s key to keep the skin on your body as healthy and hydrated as possible whilst on holiday. A combination of sun, sea and sand can lead to dry, dull patches in need of some attention to restore smoothness. Lock in moisture and protect your skin from painful sunburn with MONU Soothing After Sun Using an innovative formulation of Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter, this unique moisturiser effectively cools and hydrates the skin, soothing stress caused from sun exposure and helping to reduce signs of redness.


Finally, it’s important to keep skin nourished to ensure your tan lasts long after you’ve travelled home. We recommend using the luxuriously rich Enriched Body Cream to soothe and rejuvenate the skin, replenishing moisture to ensure that golden glow stays put even after the sun has disappeared! Our unique blend of Cocoa Butter, Chamomile, Liquorice and Vitamins A, B5 and E will ensuring dryness is a thing of the past, leaving the skin soft, smooth and protected.
