There is so much information out there on what to pack for holidays, its overwhelming so we went to the experts….Rathkeale & District Credit Union have teamed up with Giltenane’s Pharmacy, Rathkeale and compiled your Beauty Care Travel Essentials.

Beauty Care Travel Essentials
Sun cream
Good sun cream is vital for protection. At least factor 15 for adults and factor 30-50 for children. We recommend La Roche-Posay range of sun protection products, which are medically recommended and are available in body and face variations.

Scalp Sun Protection
People often forget about their scalp when applying the sun protection. We recommend Calypso Scalp Protection, which is specially formulated to provide instant protection for both hair and scalp. It can easily be sprayed directly through the hair onto the scalp.

Lip Care
Irish people are particularly prone to ‘sun-coldscores’ or sun blisters. Proper lipcare is important with SPF. We recommend La Roche-Posay SPF 50 Lip Screen and Uvistat for children.

Insect Repellent
Don’t let insect bites ruin your holiday. We recommend Jungle Formula, available in lotion and spray, suitable for adults and children. We also recommend mosquito repellent bands for children and a mosquito plug for night. Don’t forget the refill!

After Sun Care
From sprays, creams, gels, to lotions and milks, After Sun Care comes in all shapes and sizes. We recommend Aloe Vera. Nothing soothes sunburnt skin better than Mother Nature’s own remedy. We recommend Ultra Pure Aloe Vera Gel with 99.9% pure aloe-vera.

Cooling Spray
The perfect holiday companion to help keep the whole family cool during the days in the sun and humid nights. Garnier offer a lovely Hydrating Mist with Protection.

Waterproof Mascara
Not all waterproof mascaras are created equal. If you feel a bit naked without your mascara then we recommend Rimmel Waterproof Mascara. Make sure you pack your oil-based remover, as an ordinary make-up remover won’t cut it!

Travel Sickness Aids
Counteract sick tummies with travel sickness pills or bands, available for both adults and children. Ask your pharmacist about the best option for you and your family.

Tinted Moisturiser
Finding foundation a little too heavy for holidays? Tinted moisturisers and BB creams are the answer. We recommend Garnier Tinted Moisturiser work with your skin tone to create a natural looking glow.
