…and the countdown is on! You’ve purchased your resort wear wardrobe of dreams, stocked up on SPF and your passport and flight tickets are in a safe place ready for you to jet off for the summer. All that’s left to do is book your beauty appointments in advance to ensure you are preened to perfection so you can sail through the summer season in true effortless chic style.
2-5 days before:
Prep your lashes.
A couple of days before your flight, don’t forget to give your lashes some love and attention. Whether lash extensionsare your thing or you prefer a more natural-looking lash lift, both treatments promise to save you a plethora of time on vacation as you minimise the need to curl your lashes, apply mascara, not to mention run the risk of panda eyes by the pool as said mascara smudges. Lasting for up to six weeks, a lash lift tints and curls your natural lashes upwards giving them maximum length and volume. When it comes to lash extensions, you can choose from natural, volume and mega volume depending on your holiday vibe! Whichever you choose, you will enjoy beautifully full lashes without the need for any product, thus reducing your time to get ready and giving you extra vital minutes to make the most of your trip.
One week before:
Invest in a great facial.
About one week before you travel, book a Million Dollar Facial that will deliver lasting results and ensure you glow from take-off to landing. Designed to deeply exfoliate dead skin cells, remove non-terminal hair and polish the skin, this facial is a must-have before you fly, flushing away toxins and stimulating natural collagen and cell turnover. Using a combination of treatments including skin analysis, blackhead extraction, dermaplaning, skin needling, lymphatic drainage and a hyaluronic acid mask, you can guarantee your skin will be in its best possible fit-to-fly state. The epitome of luxury and a real pre-travel treat, this isn’t called a Million Dollar Facial for nothing! You can also add on an LED Light Therapy treatment, which uses different wavelengths of light including blue, yellow, amber and red to trigger the skin’s natural healing process and repair skin. There are endless benefits to LED Therapy including treating acne, regulating natural oil production, stimulating collagen and elastin and minimising redness and wrinkles.
6 weeks before:
Have your brows microbladed.
If you’ve been considering microblading, there is no time like the present to make the investment and enjoy a little more time on your vacay, rather than being holed up in your room perfecting your brows. Make life easy and leave it to the pro’s, meaning all you need to do is give your arches a little brush and you’re good to go. The treatment can be tailored fully to your requirements so if you prefer a feathered, ombre or hybrid brow, there is a look for all tastes and our Brau experts can guide you to what they recommend will work for your face shape. Lasting for up to eighteen months, the procedure takes around one month to heal fully with a touch-up recommend one month after, so give yourself a six-week time frame for this one.
The day before:
Pack your in-flight beauty bag.
The day is about to arrive, and excitement levels have reached fever pitch. Don’t undo all your skincare holiday prep and make sure you keep your skin as hydrated as possible in-flight. Aside from copious amounts of water to drink, be sure to spritz regularly with Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Micellar Cleansing Water, add MZ Skin’s Hydra Bright Golden Eye Treatment Mask to brighten dark circles, reduce any puffiness and restore hydration. Lastly slather on a rich moisturizing cream such as Barbara Sturm’s Face Cream that will act as an intensive regeneration treatment and give a revitalized glow, ready for landing. For extra relaxation, use the Gua Sha to assist with product penetration into the skin and massage out any areas that feel puffy.
…and you’re all set and fit-to-fly! Happy holidays!
