*** Boys, look away now. This is definitely one for the girls! ***
Still want to look hot while you’re travelling? You’re not alone. Read on for our top tips and advice to looking good on the road.
1. Get a haircut before you leave
Chances are you won’t get a haircut for months so book a last-minute appointment. If possible, leave your hair long. It’s much easier to manage and you can tie it up when it gets too hot.

2. Buy a good moisturiser
A good moisturiser is essential! Buy one that’s lightweight, easily absorbed and has a high SPF. We loved NIVEA Essentials day cream – perfect for throwing in the backpack and it won’t leave your face shiny.
3. Ditch the foundation
You might think you can’t live without it but foundation is a waste of time when you’re jumping into the ocean, rolling around in the sand and hiking up to Machu Picchu.
Instead go for Tea Tree Oil Facial Blotting Tissues. Not only do they combat shiny skin, they’ll help control blemishes and leave your skin looking fresh.
4. Invest in a Lush shampoo bar
Shampoo and conditioner is easy to buy when you’re away but lots of travellers find Lush shampoo bars useful. They lasts for ages and are great for taking on treks as they double up as soap.
5. Get an eyeliner with built-in sharpener
Nothing’s more annoying than a blunt eyeliner pencil when you don’t have a sharpener. So buy one with a built-in sharpener in the lid like this Clarins Eyeliner Pencil.
6. Leave nail polish at home
Nail polish chips too easily – especially when you’re in and out of the sea. Instead, keep nails short and sheen. It will save you heaps of time and effort.
7. Keep your eyebrows trim
Looking fresh-faced is hard when your eyebrows are out on control so buy a pair of small tweezers. Little and often is the key here – try and do them every few days.
8. Drink lots of water
Late nights and too much alcohol can leave your skin looking dull and lifeless so drink lots of water to keep hydrated. Aim for 2 liters per day – more if your on the beach or in humid conditions.
