Sweating is a completely natural bodily
If the thought of “packing light” sends you into a panic, or the idea of only having hand-luggage for your toiletries leaves you breaking out in a sweat, take the stress out of decision making with this practical guide to multi-tasking wash bag essentials. The key to packing light is to opt for hard-working products that go the extra mile and do more than one job. Start streamlining your holiday wash-bag with these true multi-taskers:
1. LONG-LASTING ANTI-PERSPIRANT
Holidaying in hotter climes and dipping in and out of the swimming pool can leave you frequently reapplying your anti-perspirant to prevent sweating, meaning you get through it at record speed. Opt for hard-working, long-lasting protection such as Triple Dry Unfragranced anti-perspirant. Roll-on anti-perspirants are a practical solution for travelling light as full size products often come in under 100ml – perfect for hand luggage and lasting the duration of your trip.
2. ONCE A DAY SPF
Sun protection is a holiday must-have, but arming yourself with an arsenal of products to last the duration of your trip can soon fill your case. Streamline your sun care and save space with a water-resistant, once a day sun protection product. You won’t need to top up as often meaning you can reduce the number of bottles you take.
3. AFTER-SUN AND INSECT REPELLENT
Face and body care products soon add up and start to weigh you down, so streamline your skincare with products that perform on more than one level. Look for after-sun products that not only soothe sun-kissed skin but also act as an insect repellent.
4. LIP BALM WITH SPF
Lips can become dry and cracked when exposed to the sun and sea. Being small in size, packing your lip balm is hardly going to tip the scales but maximise space by choosing one lip balm that nourishes and also protects from the sun with a high SPF. Looking for a bit of colour? Earn yourself extra multi-tasking points by opting for a tinted lip balm with SPF to take your look from day to night.
5. CHOOSE YOUR WASH WISELY
Two ways you can scale down your shower essentials are by opting for travel minis or making clever, multi-purpose wash purchases. Some washes come with added benefits, often reducing the number of products you need. Swap your shower gel and shampoo for an all-over hair and body wash, or cut out your conditioner by opting for a 2in1 shampoo and conditioner combination.
