5 Essential Beauty Products to Take Camping

Summer is around the corner (ignore the weather if it’s still windy at your end), and most people are starting to get in the holiday mood. Well, I know I am. I have started thinking of what to do with the family this summer holiday. We have never been camping as a family, and I have not gone camping in years now, so going camping is on the to-do list.

Because it has been so long, I would have to refresh my memory with a handy camping guide, so I know what to expect. I know for sure, a new large camping tent will be needed, and I know the exact one I think we would need – Urban Escape 4 Man Tunnel Tent by Halfords.

But apart from the tent, I had to look up what else we would be needing for a family with 2 kids under 4. The kids love the outdoors a lot, so I know they will be so excited to go, but once the novelty wears off, they would need to be comfortable so we can all have a good time. I would also need some essential beauty products, or else I would start to miss home too.

 

Here are some essential beauty products to take camping –

Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo is a necessity when camping. The last thing you would want to deal with when camping is smelly hair, so ensure you take a dry shampoo away with you. They are so easy to use, and very convenient to use, since you don’t have to rinse out.

 

Suncream

Suncream for the entire family is a camping essential. I can’t imagine going camping without an SPF 30 waterproof suncream.

 

Deodorant

A strong deodorant is another camping beauty essential for me. The last thing I would want is to smell funky, so a good deodorant from a tried and trusted brand like Dove, would definitely be in my camping bag.

 

Wipes

Wipes are beauty essentials for camping. I can’t imagine being without them. They are handy for wiping off makeup, cleaning hands and so on.

 

Tinted Lip Balm with SPF

I don’t bother much with makeup when camping, but having a lip balm would be great. A tinted lip balm with SPF would be fab for hydrating the lips, adding a bit of colour and for protecting the lips from the harsh sun rays.

How to Get Rid of Sleep Lines

Who doesn’t like a nice long sleep? It has been scientifically proven that a good night’s rest is beneficial for our overall well-being, so we all need it. A good night sleep helps us feel alert, refreshed and puts us in a good mood. Adequate sleep also makes your skin look really healthy too, which is a great beauty plus.

But as good as sleep can be, it leaves behind sleep lines. This comes about as a result of sleeping on side with the side of your face on the pillow for several hours.

Sleep lines look a lot like wrinkles. If they are not attended to immediately they can be on the face for a long time, which can be annoying. Here are some tips you can try out straightaway, to leave the skin looking nice and smooth free from sleep lines.

  1. Slap the sleep lines from your face

This may sound funny, but slapping yourself actually gets rid of sleep lines. This is because as you slap yourself the blood starts flowing to the area where the sleep line is and starts to make your face looking nice and plump. This drastically reduces the sleep lines on your face.

  1. Fold your sleep lines outwards

When a sleep line appears it looks like a crevasse. There’s a depression in your skin and your skin doesn’t look smooth.

To get rid of the sleep lines, another effective method is to fold your skin where the sleep line is outwards. So instead of the crevasse from going deep in your skin it is pushed out. Make sure you don’t press so hard. All you are looking for is for your skin to even out.

Once you have folded your skin outwards, hold it there for a couple of minutes, then go to the next set of sleep lines.

  1. Pinch your sleep lines out

This tip is closely related to the folding your skin outwards, but the idea behind it is quite different. Pinching the area where the sleep lines are helps to activate the blood vessels. This will help blood to circulate around the area, which will help bring back the elasticity of your skin.

It may hurt a bit but you need to be extra careful not to pinch so hard. The last thing you want is a nasty bruise from all the pinching.

  1. Moisturize the sleep lines out of your face

Moisturizing is a great way to remove the sleep lines. When your skin has moisture, its elasticity is restored. Your skin looks rejuvenated. The water in the moisturizer hydrates the skin and your skin responds perfectly to this.

To increase the effectiveness of moisturizer for your sleep lines, try massaging the moisturizer into your skin. Gently massage your skin in circular motions. This will help awaken the blood vessels and promote proper circulation of blood to your face. This will also help create youthful glow in the process.
