Summer sun is shining bright and there is no better place to be than the English Coast! This weekend we've been in St. Ives, Cornwall for a family weekend, the first event that hasn't been cancelled or postponed since February - hooray, a snippet of normality! It' known as a picturesque fishing harbour and seaside town. They are very proud to have been voted best family holiday destination by Coast magazine and one of Trip Advisor’s top 10 European beaches.... and I can now see why! What a wonderful little treat and a treasure nestled in the Southwest of England!
As we all know, the more people who travel the more bags and 'stuff' is required. I prefer to travel light even when there are four of us plus a dog, so I try to minimise as much as possible. All you need for a short family break to maintain healthy holiday skin are these five products:
Conditioning Bodywash- ph balanced and gentle enough to use on face and body. It works for a weekend, but wouldn't suggest it for regular use as a prescriptive double cleanse delivers much better results.
Body Hydrating Cream- easily absorbed moisturiser that quenches the skin with Hyaluronic Acid, great after swiming and playing in the salty sea! This can also be applied under or mixed with sunscreen for additional hydration with extra sun, salt and sand exposure.
UltraCalming Mist- a gentle hydrating spray to calm and soothe the skin post surf. This also works well on windburn, sunburn, bug bites and any areas that get chaffed from salt water.
Power Rich- a vitamin packed moisturiser that can be used on the eyes, neck and decollate to repair skin after being exposed to the elements. It can also be used as a nourishing layer under sun protection.
Protection 50 Sport- a broad spectrum spf 50 that can be used on the face and body to protect against UVA (ageing rays) and UVB (burning rays) all year round. This formula also gives 40 minutes protection in the water, but remember to reapply every two hours! This is great for the entire family, I've used it on my boys since they were only a few months old. It works well as a daytime moisturiser and is non-cosemetogenic so it won't clog the pores and cause breakouts.
These products work well for the entire family and helps to minimise packing whilst ensuring everyone's skin is protected and hydrated. They can be purchased from our website with complimentary delivery straight to your door. www.orchidsretreat.co.uk/dermalogica
