While the days of packing as you please are a distant memory when it comes to airline travel those days, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave all of your essentials comforts at home. You just have to pack a little smarter. Skin creams, hairsprays, talc and body lotion all devour precious space. Look for travel essential bargains in supermarkets and streamline your routine by packing essentials that pull double-duty like a sunscreen that can double as a moisturizer and sunscreen in one.
Drink lots of water. This is especially important for flights and the longer the flight, the more you should drink as flying can really dehydrate you. Staying hydrated helps prevent jet lag and general fatigue, and also keeps your body functioning properly through unavoidable changes in climate and local food variations.
Block the rays!
For most Irish people, using sunscreen in Ireland is essential to good skin care and doubly-so when travelling to a sunny climate. Keep your sunscreen in a highly visible place so that it reminds you that it needs to be used as only 10 minutes of strong sunshine can burn you badly. There’s nothing worse than getting a sunburn on your very first day of holiday but getting burned can lead to far more serious skin care issues in the future so take the extra few minutes to protect yourself.
