Tricks and tips for girls who love to travel

  1. Preparation is key

    Preparation is key

    Like most things in life, when it comes to travel, preparation is key. Whether you are jetting off for 2 days or 2 years, it’s always nice to have a plan in place… This way everything feels less stressful and you can spend more time enjoying yourself! If you’re travelling for a long length of time, it’s always a good idea to map out a route and allocate days to spend in a specific place. Or, if you’re heading away for a weekend, it can be helpful to put together a list of places that you would like to visit so that you can make the most out of your time. Remember, planning is supposed to be fun and shouldn’t be at all stressful! Keep relaxed and light a Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Candle for ultra calming vibes.

  2. Pack smart

    Pack smart

    When you’re travelling, there is nothing worse than having to carry around a massive bag full of things that you really don’t need. To make sure that this doesn’t happen, pack in advance and make a list of everything that you want to take, rather than throwing everything straight into your suitcase! Also, ensure that you are packing things that you will actually use. A clear makeup bag, a SPF and some dry shampoo are definitely some of the HQ gals’ must-haves! We love the Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo. Not only does this uh-mazing product absorb oil and dirt from the hair, but it also provides lovely texture and volume.

  3. Leave A Trail

    Leave A Trail

    Make sure that your travelling memories never fade by taking plenty of photos! We know that whilst on holiday it can be nice to switch off your phone and completely lose yourself in the place that you are visiting. However, it’s important to remember that once you’re back, those memories can feel like a lifetime ago. Even if you’d rather not upload your images to Instagram, take it old school and get your pictures printed out; buy a photo album once you’re home and create a little book of memories to look back on! Make sure that you’re camera-ready and prime your skin with the Garnier Skin Naturals 5 Second Perfect Blur Primer.

  4. Pamper as you travel

    Pamper as you travel

    When you’re travelling, especially if it’s for a long length of time, remember to make time for a little pamper every now and then. If you’re travelling some where hot, then your skin and hair become a lot more sensitive and therefore can be damaged very quickly. To avoid this, wear SPF on your skin and your hair at all points throughout your trip and remember to treat both areas to a repairing mask. If you do manage to burn your skin, use the yes to cucumbers Calming Face Mask to cool your skin down. For the ultimate calming effect, place the mask in the fridge before hand.

    Enjoy yourself

    And maybe the most important point of all… Enjoy yourself! Whilst you’re young, travelling is one of the best things that you can possibly do to gain new experiences and encounter different cultures. Make sure that you plan your route, pack smartly, get your phone ready for lots of selfies and get your bag filled with lots of little beauty treats, then you’re ready to go!

#SocialAndSassy

I’ve obsessed over all things beauty for as long as I can remember! Since my early teens, I’ve constantly experimented with my makeup, hair and nails. Nowadays, I usually settle for a statement eye and a soft, nude lip. I also love social media, so if you see a tweet or a post by HQhair, then I’ll most probably be the face behind it! If I’m not playing around with the latest beauty product or checking out what’s happening over on Twitter, then I’ll be on a city break with my friends, sipping on a Blue Lagoon.
