Beauty Tracker: Traveller’s Guide to Looking Good
It’s time to apply for leave and take a sabbatical from that desk job. Plus, with the Mumbai monsoon a breath away, a vacay in the sunny co-ordinates of the world is highly recommended. So while you prepare your check-list, we give you a definitive list of beauty essentials that should take care of your make-up needs, skincare, and bust those bad hair days. We’re also being kind enough to let you in on a few beauty tips and tricks by skin expert Dr. Bindu Sthalekar.
Keep in mind:
1. While travelling, prepare the skin by exfoliating and moisturising.
2. While in-flight, use a hydrating face mask or thermal water spray to keep your skin nourished.
3. After flying, use a mild facial scrub to remove surface dead cells, which can cause oil and bacteria to be trapped under the skin, resulting in an increase in breakouts.
4. Hair can get flatter and limp during transit. Apply a hair volumising product before taking a flight. Also, use a leave-in hair serum for oily hair, or oil for dry hair.
5. Use a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream prior to applying any make-up. Applying a highlighter on the cheek bones and inner corner of the eyes can give a fresh look.
