It’s that time of year again – your annual summer holiday! According to ABTA a staggering 60% of the population have taken a holiday in the past 12 months, so it’s safe to say that more and more people are jetting off to sunnier climes each year. As you smile at the thought of endless sunshine, exotic cocktails and turquoise waters, you may also be dreading the journey that lies ahead. Travelling (and heat) can play havoc with your skin and hair, but the good news is there are some things you can do to ensure you arrive and stay at your destination looking fresh-faced and feeling revived. Make sure you pack these key beauty and wellness products from Forever Living to ensure you look and feel amazing, from take-off to touch down.
Forever Travel Kit
There is nothing more stressful than arriving at airport security only to realise your hand luggage is full of products over 100ml which haven’t been sorted into transparent bags! Save yourself the headache beforehand and take the Forever Travel Kit with you on your travels. The kit contains airline approved sizes of the Aloe Moisturizing Lotion, Aloe-Jojoba Shampoo, Aloe-Jojoba Conditioning Rinse and Forever Bright Toothgel. Problem solved!
Forever Aloe Vera Gel 330ml
As much as you may love your daily dose of aloe gel, no one wants to lug a big litre bottle around with them! Make sure you pack a few 330ml Forever Aloe Vera Gels in your suitcase before you set off on your travels. These handy, easy-to-carry drinks are perfect to take away on long weekends or longer breaks, and each one is packed with 99.7% pure inner leaf aloe gel.
Protecting Day Lotion and Aloe Sunscreen
Even though you’re on a plane and not outside, you still need SPF on your skin; the LED lights and windows during daytime flights can cause skin damage, too. In fact, according to The Journal of the American Medical Association plane windows stop about 99% of UVB rays, but only about half of UVA rays. Protecting Day Lotion is a unique daily moisturiser that contains SPF 20 and over twenty skin-conditioning ingredients, including aloe vera, to protect your face from UVA and UVB rays, while Aloe Sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen with SPF 30 and non-nanosized zinc oxide to offer you superior, broad-spectrum protection.
Forever Hand Sanitizer
This is a travel essential, especially if you are a bit of a germaphobe! Airports and planes are notoriously bad for their high levels of bacteria, which isn’t surprising given the high volumes of people that pass through them every day. Did you know that the tanks used to store water on airplanes can be a breeding ground for bacteria? A recent United States Environmental Protection Agency study found that 15 percent of the samples collected from 300 planes contained coliform bacteria and two samples tested positive for E.coli. That’s why it’s important to bring some hand sanitiser with you so that you can be sure you’re killing unwanted germs. Forever Hand Sanitizer is a great option because the high aloe content will leave your hands feeling soothed and soft.
Aloe Bio-Cellulose Mask
Long flights can leave your skin feeling as if it’s been drained of moisture since the inside cabin of most commercial airplanes has a humidity level of 10 to 20 percent. That’s far lower than the 40 to 65 percent humidity found in most indoor climates! Drink plenty of water during your flight and when you reach your destination, unwind and replenish your skin’s lost moisture with Forever’s Aloe Bio-Cellulose Mask. You’ll experience powerful hydration that gets in deep for a truly rejuvenating experience.
Aloe Vera Gelly
Our go-to product for August is definitely Aloe Vera Gelly – no holiday bag should be without this incredible product! When you’ve spent all day in the sunshine, whether you’ve been full-on tanning or roaming the streets between café stops, your skin has probably been exposed to high levels of UV rays, causing it to feel stressed and dry. After sun-down, bathe your skin in rich aloe goodness by slathering on layers of Aloe Vera Gelly. Thanks to 84% pure inner leaf aloe, this soothing gel makes for a great after-sun, adding moisture back into the skin while calming irritation.
N.B Please be aware that you will need to put any products that are over 100ml into smaller, transparent bottles if you wish to take these items onto the plane in your hand luggage.
