The sunshine has finally arrived. It’s time to relax, recharge, and enjoy whatever the summer season has in store for you. With high UV indexes, hotter temperatures, and a change in your wardrobe, it’s only natural to want to refresh your beauty routine to suit the season. However, it can be tricky to know what are the most effective swaps to ensure your toiletry bag is summer-ready. We’ve got a few tips to help you make the best updates to your summer routine.
Prioritise Multi-Use Products
It’s so easy to convince yourself that you need every product in your bathroom cabinet. You end up with a suitcase that’s too heavy and you’re reshuffling your luggage at the check-in desk - we’ve all been there. Save yourself the stress and strip your toiletries back to basics. You can pack enough to feel clean, comfortable, and refreshed in just one small bag. The Stardust soap is a shea butter soap that is beautifully moisturising as well as giving a deep clean. Save yourself from packing a body wash, butter or moisturiser; this bar will have you completely covered in the shower. As a bonus, the lavender essential oil in this soap creates a beautiful calming aroma, making your shower time even more relaxing. As a bonus, this gentle formula is perfect for the whole family, even those with sensitive skin, saving even more space for pool toys in those suitcases.
Swap Out Liquids To Make Travelling A Breeze
I'm sure most of us have experienced the heartbreak of the airport security worker pulling out your suspiciously large bottle of shampoo and popping it straight in the bin. Or maybe you open your suitcase at the hotel to find your entire wardrobe now smells like a green apple. Avoid the woes that come with bulky and messy liquid products by switching to solid alternatives. KOHA Beauty has some great options including the Natural Deodorant Cream and Shampoo and Conditioner Bars that will not only help you condense your toiletry bag but also provide clean alternatives to some of your most-used products that are full of toxins. The vegan shampoo and conditioner will gently wash out all the sun, sweat, and sand from your hair while leaving it feeling soft and silky, while the cream deodorant will have you smelling fresh after a long day in the sun without any nasty chemicals.
Make Sustainable Swaps That You’ll Feel Good About
While it is tempting to go crazy in the pharmacy before a holiday, it can be a wasteful and unsustainable practice. Most of the packaging you’ll find mainstream beauty products in is not truly recyclable or reusable. KOHA Beauty products are naturally plastic-free in their solid bar form, reducing the need for excessive packaging. There are also an array of accessories including aluminium travel tins, pineapple fibre wash bags, and bamboo combs that can ensure your entire beauty bag will be planet-friendly. In addition, the ingredients in mainstream cosmetics can be harmful to the environment and damaging to marine life, coral, and water quality. That’s why KOHA Beauty products are all 100% vegan and made with clean ingredients that keep the environment in mind.
Sprucing up your toiletry bag for your summer travels can be an exciting way to treat yourself, but also an opportunity to make sustainable and skin-loving changes that you will appreciate year-round.
We hope you enjoy incorporating KOHA Beauty products into your summer self-care routines this year.
