Information & Advice
I like to get up into the high mountains where even in summer there is permanent snow, the sky is clear and blue and you are 12,000 feet above the day to day bustle. The Swiss Alps are on my list of favourite places.
A five-star UVA sun protection product of at least SPF 30 is my absolute priority. We all tend to head off to the sun and spend long periods outdoors when on holiday. Thanks to my role as skin care scientific adviser, I know the long term damage the sun can do, so Soltan is always my first choice. I always pack a Hackett Moisturising Shaving Cream. And I never go anywhere without Dental Floss!
For long haul flights, a rich moisturiser can be good as the dry air on a plane can leave skin feeling dry and uncomfortable. The advice when flying is to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and it's sensible to treat your skin to extra moisture too.
Personally, I use the same as at home but it's good advice to pack an intensive conditioner to prevent the sun and sea water drying out the hair and making it feel like straw. To reduce sun damage in the first place, use a product with sunscreens to protect hair when swimming (try Boots Sun, Swim & Gym Water Resistant Protective Masque).
