Summer Euro Trip: Skin and Hair Care

Skin and Hair Care for summer Euro trip
Posted date on May 29, 2023

Are you dreaming about going on a grand European adventure where you may see charming towns, indulge in delectable cuisines, and become immersed in a variety of cultures? But before you go and book the tickets, Make sure that you carry all the essentials, and don’t forget to prioritise your hair and skin. The summer in Europe is quite hot and humid, which will lead to heat rash, dryness, acne breakouts, and frizzy hair. Here are some tips that will help you take care of your skin and hair while you travel across Europe this summer!

> Sunscreen 


While exploring a new destination in Europe, clicking pictures and creating some good memories is fun. But extended sun exposure can make your face look tanned. By applying sunscreen, your skin is protected from harmful UV rays. Choose a sunscreen with minimum  30 SPF or higher to avoid the risk of getting tanned, dry skin, and breakouts. It is always advisable to check the UV index and follow the local guidelines for sun protection and consult with a dermatologist.

> Moisturiser


Travelling across Europe in the summer can be dehydrating for your skin if you leave it dry. It's better to go for a mineral-based moisturiser to avoid dryness. A moisturiser with hyaluronic, glycerin, and niacinamide will improve your skin's texture. While antioxidants like vitamins C and E keep your skin glowing and hydrated for the day.

> Facial wipes

Your skin is exposed to the weather, and a lot of impurities attach to it while you're enjoying the best train journey in Europe,  making it greasy and causing breakouts. Facial wipes are quite easy to carry while travelling. It helps remove dirt, excess oil, sweat, and makeup from the skin. If you have oily skin, consider using wipes that contain salicylic acid, which will help to remove the impurities from your skin and prevent breakouts. Even though facial wipes can be practical during travel, they should not completely replace a proper skincare routine. It is still important to cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser and follow your regular skincare routine to maintain healthy skin. Facial wipes can be a temporary solution or a supplement to your regular skincare routine while you're on the go.

> Lip Balm

Lip Balm

Using lip balm while travelling in Europe, or any other destination, can be beneficial for several reasons. Travelling, especially by air, can cause dry air and dehydration, which can lead to dry and chapped lips. Avoid constant lip licking and choose a lip balm that provides moisturization and helps prevent dryness, keeping your lips soft and comfortable. Even in Europe, where the weather may not always be hot, the sun's rays can still be harmful to your lips. Lip balms with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) can provide an additional layer of protection against sunburn and UV damage. Applying lip balm regularly during your travels can help maintain soft, hydrated, and protected lips throughout your trip.

> Facial Mist

Face mists provide instant hydration to your skin, which can be particularly refreshing during hot and dry weather conditions. Facial mists not only hydrate your skin but also provide a pleasant sensory experience. Choose a face mist, consider your skin type and specific needs. Look for mists that are suitable for your skin, whether it's hydrating, soothing, or refreshing. Additionally, opt for face mists with non-irritating ingredients to avoid any potential skin reactions.

> Hand Cream

European summer can cause dryness and dehydration, which can affect your hands as well. Hand cream helps to keep your hands moisturised, preventing them from becoming dry, rough, or cracked. While hand creams typically focus on moisturization, some also contain SPF to provide sun protection for your hands. This is especially important in Europe during the summer when the sun's UV rays can still be strong and damaging to the skin.

> Shampoo and Conditioner

The scorching temperatures in Europe throughout the summer may cause havoc on your hair, making it dry and frizzy. To tackle these challenges, it's important to select the correct shampoo and conditioner for your unique needs. Choose travel-sized versions of these haircare basics to make them easier to pack and use on a trip. 

> Serum

Including a hair serum in your hair care routine is an excellent method to add moisture and shine, particularly if you have dry or frizzy hair. Choose a lightweight serum that will not weigh down your hair or leave a sticky residue on your scalp, allowing for simple removal. The serum improves scalp health by infusing moisture and hydrating the scalp.

> Hair Accessories

When travelling through Europe, you can use various hair accessories to protect your hair and keep it manageable. Use hair scarves or bandanas to protect it from sun exposure, wind, and dust. It can also be a fashionable accessory that adds style to your outfit. Consider wearing a wide-brimmed hat not only provides shade and protection from the sun but also shields your hair from UV rays. It helps prevent sun damage, dryness, and colour fading.

> Conclusion 

A summer trip to Europe provides limitless options for adventure and learning. As you set out on your trip, it's important to prioritise your skin and hair care to ensure you look and feel your best. Appreciate the beauty of Europe while protecting yourself by knowing the sun's impact, using the correct sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and nurturing your hair. Happy holiday!
