Summer Skincare: Top Tips for Travelling with the Aztec Spa in Torquay

When we think about summer holidays and caring for our skin, we’re all aware of the need to protect our skin from the sun, but what we often forget are the stressful effects of warm weather, dehydrating plane travel and daily build-up of grime in this season.

It’s not just about what we need to pack to take on holiday with us. It’s also important to prepare our skin before we go away. Even if you’re not planning on a holiday, it’s important to adjust your skincare during the summer. Whether you are travelling aboard or staying at home and enjoying the sunshine, take a look at some of our top tips for skincare this summer!

When packing

To save some space, choose multitasking products like the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, which can act as a deep cleanser, soothing after sun mask and emergency repair balm.

When selecting a moisturiser, ELEMIS would always recommend a product that can target the many different stresses the skin will experience, from change in climate to exposure to salt water and chlorine.  ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix is the perfect choice. With Smart Drone Technology, this product targets areas of the face where stress shows most. It’s like having your own personal therapist on holiday with you; knowing what your skin needs and then prescribing the correct night treatment for you. The formula works throughout the night to help restore the natural balance to the skin, sealing in hydration. A youthful, less tired looking appearance is revealed by the morning, so when you want to go make up free your skin will look the best it possibly can.
