If you’re heading to the beach for a holiday or going out to sea on a cruise, you’d want to look your best effortlessly. The secret to fuss-free beauty is great skin!
Here are our top cruise beauty tips and products for a flawless vacation look:
“Wrap some ice in a cloth and gently roll over the face to d-puff, cool and stimulate blood flow, bringing a healthy glow back to your face,” says facialist and skincare expert Sarah Chapman. “A few minutes of facial massage also works a treat,” she says. “So, hold your hands in loose fists and gently rub them over your face, from the centre out.”
Swap your serum for one that’s loaded with skin-smoothing hyaluronic acid. The age defying Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate, R775 for 30ml, is pricy, but super-intensive, treatment for wrinkles and sagging skin; with katafray extra and a hyaluronic acid-complex to boost radiance and lock in moisture. Or try Cellular Anti-Age Skin Refining Serum, R220 for 40ml, which smooths and firms skin.
Sweep L’Oréal Triple Active Day Multi-protection Moisturiser, R99,95 for 50ml, or Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm, R815 for 50ml, over clean skin for a fast “peaches-and-cream” flash of radiance that instantly gives skin a healthier appearance.
Pack A Peel
Refresh dull-looking skin with Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Peel and Reveal Revitalizing Mask, R385 for 50ml, a gentle exfoliating mask that retextures, significantly revitalizes, smooths and brightens up your skin, in just 20 minutes.
“To quickly rid yourself of that tired look, I always recommend heat,” says skincare specialist Noella Gabriel. “Warm your hands, place your face into your palms, then use this warmth to massage in your favourite facial oil. The combination of heat and oil will soften the skin, and your expression, so you’ll instantly look more youthful.” For top-to-toe use Bio-Oil Body Oil, R89,95 for 60ml.
