How to Look Great when Travelling

thumbnailHolidays are the best way to relax and refresh your whole body. However, travelling can leave you looking tired. Follow our steps on how to look great when you travel so you can look beach-ready as soon as you get off the plane.

Before you travel

·         Use leave in conditioner and tie long hair back- Ensure your hair doesn't dry out or get split ends on the airplane by leaving conditioner in your hair for the flight. Long hair should be tied back in a bobble or hair band to keep it under control.

·         Remember to have a good night’s sleep the night before- It is essential for you to get sleep the night before you flight so you feel refreshed and ready for the journey ahead.

·         Wear loose clothing – Make sure your body has unrestricted blood flow wearing loose trousers and shirts.

·         Layer up your clothing- Put on layers so between the freezing flight chill and the boiling temperatures in the terminals, you can change as many times as you see fit.

·         Moisturise your face and hands- Airplanes are notorious for causing dry skin so ensure you moisturise your skin thoroughly before a flight. Try one of the Lonsdale gifts sets for ladies or men from only £4.
