Ahhh.. Summer goodness has resumed!
The borders have opened up, since 3 months ago. With more relaxed measures, such as no longer needing to quarantine upon arrival and return, to and fro your trip. You get to enjoy a new place normally without troublesome requisites.
Just like before COVID-19 hit.
So with this resumption of freely travelling, packing for your trip has suddenly become foreign, like a thing you have not done in forever, ringing true to some of you ladies!
Panic not, for we are here to give you a checklist of what you could pack for your upcoming trip! Be it to the US, UK or Paris to experience French culture, we think we just have the right beauty tools for you to stay covered for your trip.
Wherever you are, apart from Australia, the heat is hitting us badly these days. Given that it’s Summer in most “angmoh” (Western and European) countries, some places in Asia are also affected by this Summer season of a climate.
Before we begin, we would like to remind you on the precautionary measures you’ll have to undertake for your travels.
Your Mandatory Checklist:
1. Make sure you’re physically updated on the latest vaccine, (getting the latest booster shot).
2. If you’re suffering from any ailments, please pack along sufficient medical supplies.
3. If you love disposable masks, get your favourite dispensable masks with enough supplies to last you through your trip. (Cap at 3-4 masks a day.)
4. Now, your favourite outfits planned day 1 to day final. (Including swimsuits and gym wear).
5. And finally our expertise, SKINCARE! You’ll want to look and feel your best on your long-awaited trip to somewhere outside your home country.
Ahhh where should we begin? We are experiencing a high dose of excitement to share this part with you.

3. Sunscreen!!! An unbreakable rule.
This is a hybrid sunscreen that has both chemical and physical (mineral) filters!
Wondering what the differences are?
The work by forming a physical layer on top of your skin to reflect away UVA/UVB rays. This type of filters, covers a broad-spectrum of protection. It also helps prevent hyperpigmentations and wrinkles from forming.
Chemical filters are absorbed into your skin. So when UVA/UVB rays hit, the product absorbs it all before your skin could absorb it. Chemical filters does not leave a white cast over your skin, making it more appearance-friendly to most people.
For this hybrid product, it provides exceptionally high skin-support and protection from external damage. It is lightweight, fragrance-free and leaves no white cast behind!
Application is easy as this product just melts on your skin upon contact.
We say, this sunscreen will be easy and good for your travels!
4. Mask before sleep!
Long day of walking around a foreign town or city got you huffing and puffing your way back to your room to wind down for the night.
We recommend doing either a hydrating mask or an acne targeting mask!
Based on my own experience with this highly hydrating mask, I highly recommend it to everyone facing dry skin issues or simply want restored hydration.
