Essential Summer Travel Tips from Beauty Diva Shahnaz Husain

Time flies when you're having fun with friends and family on hills and beaches during the summer holidays, right?

The summer vacations are just around the corner and you must be planning holidays in cool atmosphere in beaches and hills ,but it is very important to know that the effects of sun exposure are greater by the waterside, or near snow, because water and snow are reflective surfaces which can give trouble if you don't take adequate protection from sun rays in advance.


"The sun is the biggest enemy of skin during the summer and protecting your skin from the sunburn and harmful UV rays is an absolute must on hills and beaches so that you can enjoy a trouble less journey," says beauty diva Shahnaz Husain People love to travel in summer as it brings relief after extreme cold conditions and is the perfect time to relax, whether you're jetting off on a beach vacation or heading home for the holidays, you will look your best with simple ayurvedic beauty tips offered by Shahnaz. Husain suggests simple hot beauty tips to make your summer holidays extra beautiful.

"Beauty care when you travel begins from the time you pack for your trip. So, think of your travel essentials first. For skin care, remember to take your sunscreen lotion. An anti-tan sunscreen or sun-block would be good. Apply broad spectrum sunscreen when out in the sun, not only on the face, but on all exposed areas. Apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before going out. If you are out in the sun for more than an hour, re-apply the sunscreen. Use high SPF of 30 and above for sensitive skin. You would also need a moisturiser, rehydrant cleanser, hand cream, lip balm. For oily skin and during the summer months, a scrub would help to brighten the skin and allow deep pore cleansing," Shahnaz said. After swimming in the sea, rinse your face well with plain water. When you get back home or to your hotel room, dab face with cold milk and leave on for a few minutes. It helps to soothe sun burn. Then apply moisturiser.

A peel off mask would be ideal to nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Or, mix honey with egg white and apply on the face. Wash off after 20 minutes. Honey is a natural moisturizer. This combination leaves the skin soft and glowing, says Beauty Diva Shahnaz Husain The salt in sea water can make the hair dull and matted. A swimming cap would help to protect the hair from the sun and salt. Wet your hair thoroughly before swimming in the sea. The hair is porous. It can absorb that much and no more. Wet hair will not absorb that much sea water. Rinse it thoroughly afterwards too. Use a mild herbal shampoo to wash the hair after swimming in the sea. After shampoo, apply leave-on conditioner or hair serum. For make-up for the beach, less is better. But, for your make-up while travelling, carry an eye-pencil, mascara and lipsticks that are suitable for both day and night wear. Include lip gloss, compact powder and powder blush-on.

Remember to take a few tissues. If you have oily skin, or the weather is hot and humid, pre-moistened tissues are best. Take deodorant and talcum powder too says Beauty Diva Shahnaz Husain. A few skin care tips would help to look your best while travelling. Cleanse the face twice a day and rinse with water as often as possible, especially if you are out sightseeing. A "pick-me-up" face mask can leave your skin clean and glowing. It is a simple of way removing fatigue and refreshing the skin. You may not have time to mix ingredients, so take along a peel-off mask to add a touch of brightness to the skin. Ready-to-use peel-off masks are easily available. "In dry and cold weather, or at mountain resorts, the skin and hair may lack moisture.

The hands and lips can also suffer from dryness. Apply moisturizing cream on the hands two or three times and massage it into the skin. For hair care, carry hair cream with sunscreen, herbal shampoo, herbal hair serum and conditioner. Use a mild herbal shampoo and conditioner to soften the hair and make it smooth and manageable. A mild herbal shampoo is a must. Carry a scarf along to protect your hair from exposure to the sun, wind and dust. You will need it if you are out motoring, boating or even walking," Husain says Even during your holiday, you can use natural ingredients for your hair to improve its look. Ingredients like tea and beer may be easily available and can be used to rinse the hair and add shine to it. Beer works well for dry hair.

Add the juice of a lemon to the beer and rinse the hair with it. Leave on for a few minutes and rinse off with plain water. It softens and smoothens the hair and also adds shine. For oily hair, add a tea bag to 4 to 5 cups of warm water. Remove tea bag and cool the water. Then add the juice of a lemon and use it as a last rinse. This helps to make the hair silky and shiny, Husain said.
