I LOVE to travel … we recently got back from a trip to Kansas City which was AMAZING btw, but the problem with travel is my skin ALWAYS breaks out! Do you guys get that too? Flying, the change of climate, plane food and dehydration all contribute to my less than desirable face. So after I’ve travelled, I always like to give my skin some extra love and attention. It appreciates a little TLC.
 
Face masks are a great way to rejuvenate the skin and give it some much needed nourishment after it's depletion. Think rich moisturising ingredients, antioxidants antibacterial properties and all that good stuff.
 
DIY face masks are relatively inexpensive and use ingredients that most of us have in our kitchen. Mix up your masks by hand or give them a quick whaz in the blender, make a nice cup of herbal tea, kick up your feet, relax and unwind while you scroll through your favorite blog! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge …)

  • Switch your body moisturizer for organic coconut oil – coconut oil is super hydrating and smells delicious.
  • Make-up removers have all kinds of nasties hidden inside. For a natural alternative try coconut oil.
  • Rather than purchasing your favourite fragrance, try using essential oils instead. The best bit is you can combine your different oils to create your own personal scent. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a great facial toner and is great for blemishes.
  • Makeup – ladies if you are a dedicated makeup user and the thought of stepping outside without your face on sends you into a sheer panic, then i suggest you try using a mineral makeup instead. Mineral makeup is gentler on the skin containing less binders, parabens and other harmful ingredients. They also contain minerals that are beneficial to the skin, allowing it to breathe naturally without clogging pores. Make sure that the mineral bases you are choosing are fragrance and preservative free.
