Are you traveling to a cold destination for a vacation anytime soon? We’re sure most of you are, because it’s the holiday season! And packing beauty essentials for a winter vacation can be quite a hassle – you don’t know what you need so you either overpack or underpack. We’ve compiled a bunch of products that we swear by; that you will help you survive your winter vacation without you constantly fretting about your skin!
 

Carry coconut oil

Carry coconut oil

This multipurpose ingredient will single-handedly sort you out with all your dry skin woes. Its extreme hydrating properties help penetrate deep into your skin and help it replenish from within. You can also use it on your dry scalp to combat dandruff. Remember to use it as a moisturiser only when you go to bed as it won’t be feasible to wear it when you’re out and about. It’s the skin care product you should trust.

 

A cream for winter spots

Winter acne is a legit concern and for all of you thinking that acne and spots can only be caused due to oil, dirt and humidity, you’re only half informed. Dry weather can make your skin prone to dry skin, acne, and if you already have a problem, it can worsen it. This causes spots to show up on your skin! We suggest carrying the Pond’s White Beauty Daily Spotless Lightening Cream which comes with GenWhite actives that help in prevention and fading of acne spots. It also contains SPF 20 because no matter how cold the destination, UVA and UVB rays will still penetrate through your skin.

Doing your makeup on a bare face which isn’t moisturised is the worst thing you could do to your skin. And if you’re vacationing somewhere cold, don’t even think about it. And not like you won’t be doing any makeup on your winter vacation, right? It’s important to moisturise your skin before you do your makeup. We suggest using the Fair & Lovely Winter Fairness Cream that comes with 24 hour active moisturisers which help your skin make up for a smooth surface for your makeup to sit on and adds to the overall finish of the makeup.

 

A body lotion that will work all day

We ignore the skin on our bodies when it comes to moisturisation and tend to only focus on the face. We ignore body lotions mainly because most of them are greasy and sticky which cause your clothes to stick to them, basically – end of your comfort zone. We recommend using a body lotion that’s non-greasy and high absorbent like the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Body Lotion that provides extra hydration.

 

Petroleum jelly for cracked lips

Petroleum jelly for cracked lips

Your lips show the first signs of dryness as they begin cracking, chapping and even bleeding. Even in a city like Mumbai, cracked lips are a common problem; imagine what they will through in cold destinations. It’s always advisable to have a lip balm handy and we can’t trust anything more than Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. It helps retain the moisture leaving your lips soft and hydrated. Also, it comes in a small jar that’s easy to carry. What else does one want?

So, if you’re all set to vacation at a cold destination, make sure you carry travel packs of all the above mentioned products in your beauty travel kit to protect your skin from dry, cold weather!
