During a recent trip abroad, the Zardozi team discovered three skin saving tips for a healthy glow.
With our shelves full of make-up and skincare products on the right and our almost full suitcases on the left, we suddenly felt as though though our eyes were popping out of our heads with the ultimate question – how would we manage three weeks without our everyday necessities.
Everyday necessities – a skin cream for night, another for day. A serum for the eyes and a foundation for the face. A curly hair product and a straight. Over time, our daily beauty regiments have become increasingly complicated as we stroll on the path towards ultimate beauty perfection.

Traveling can be a daunting experience and looking your finest is not always top priority when building memories to last a lifetime so we’ve put together three tricks which will keep you looking pretty while staying practical.
1) Coconut Oil is your secret weapon. This naturally hydrating product is the salvation your skin has been looking for. Just dabbing a little on in the morning after a hot shower will go a long way, giving it a few minutes to settle into your skin before applying your make-up products and gently wiping off if you got a little coco happy. For night time, dab on a little more after a refreshing face wash for glowing skin by morning. Be sure to stay far from the delicate eye area which requires a little special care. Bonus – a small amount goes a long way, can be used for face, hair or even as a quick mouth wash!
2) A Good Shampoo & Conditioner will keep you locks looking loved throughout your trip. Weather spending a lot of time in the sun or hiding out where the humidity can’t hit, a good shampoo & conditioner will keep your hair looking and feeling healthy for those on the fly #selfies. We recommend investing in our personal favorites Nexxus Restoring Shampoo & Conditioner with Caviar complex or for those willing to dig a little deeper into the pockets the Kerastase Fondant Nutri-Thermique.
3) Concealer combined with a basic eyelash curler will be your best friend. After long days outside and long nights exploring the city, mornings don’t often look too pretty. A little concealer stick like Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick and a curl of the lashes will instantly wake you up and bring your best face forward. Bonus – these small multi-purpose items are travel friendly and will reduce the bulk in your kit!
With the right foundation, any woman can look like she naturally has even, perfect skin.
