ON THE ROAD

Beauty products for your holiday

How about a dream trip to one of the world's most beautiful beaches? You should definitely include these beauty products in your make-up bag for your trip.

White sand, palms, the softly rushing sea, many hours of fun in the sun and simply relaxing. Your best bet is to travel to the other end of the earth, a few hours' flight from Europe. In addition to a bikini, a good book, a large sun hat and pretty flip-flops, don't forget to pack the right beauty products - for sun protection, skincare and a fresh holiday complexion.

... Mexico

Here you can enjoy two dreamy oceans: either the Pacific in the West or the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico in the East. In Puerto Vallarta, for instance, it's a lovely 30 degrees all year round. The holiday destination in the West of Mexico invites you to sail, surf and dive in the underwater caves if you don't feel like lounging between the palms on the white beaches. At precisely the same height, on the other side of the country, on the Yucatán Peninsula, you can enjoy the large bays with clear, turquoise blue water, fine sand and the impressive underwater world of the Great Maya Reef. So close to the Equator, there are not only romantic sun rises and sunsets, but also about eight hours worth of sunbathing.

Include this in your make-up bag for a trip to Mexico:

Sun protection: The waterproof Soleil Creme Solaire SPF 50+ protects the skin from strong sun exposure which is particularly intense around the Equator. It is suitable for sensitive skin types and all skin tones. The cream is rapidly absorbed without leaving white traces on the skin, and supplies additional moisture thanks to the natural chicory extract. In addition, it protects against premature skin aging and pigment spots. Soleil Spray Invisible SPF 30 is a waterproof sun spray with natural tanning activator that combats UV radiation as soon as you spray it on. It is particularly suitable for sporting activities in the sun, for example during a Jet Ski trip along the Acapulco Coast or during a game of tennis on the beach. Hair needs sun protection too! Soleil Vitalité Express prevents a rude awakening after your dream holiday due to insufficient hair protection. The water-repellent 2-phase spray care results in sufficient sun protection for the hair, improves the hair structure and instantly repairs already stressed hair. And the best thing of all: Vitalité Express supplies silky shine and fun in the sun with every spray, and features an exclusive summery Soleil scent composition. 

Care: Tonique Hydratant is a true mineral cocktail that refreshes the facial skin. Magnesium, zinc and copper are energising and combat free radicals. Thanks to the long-chain hyaluronic acid and active ingredients from the apple, it also supplies an extra portion of moisture after a long day on the Xpu-Ha Beach. Apply Tonique to cleansed face and work in well. Hair also benefits from a boost. In a matter of minutes, the intense Dry Hair Conditioner supplies shine, softness, bounce and, above all, lots of moisture to dry hair. Active ingredients from the desert rose regulate the hair's moisture balance from the first application. 
Styling: For a natural beach style, simply wear the hair down and shape with some Soleil Laque. The summery scented hairspray is particularly suitable for the beach as it offers optimum UV protection for the hair and gives it a pretty shape - whether applied to dry or slightly damp hair. For emphasised cheeks the elegant powder blusher Tender Blush is the perfect choice for a Mexican beach bar in Cancún. The mineral pigments provide a youthful, lively complexion, particularly in the colour "Mystic Red" at an after-sunset get-together with a shot of Tequila.

...Thailand

The country in Southeast Asia borders on the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. It is not only very rich when it comes to the culture, but also when it comes to the plant and animal world. Holiday-makers not only get to enjoy the beautiful beaches, but also the delicious food, the tourist attractions and a generous dose of wellness. A diverse trip, for example, combines a stay in the centre of Bangkok, an outing to the jungle and then a week of relaxation on the isolated beaches of Khao Lak.

Include this in your make-up bag for a trip to Thailand:

Sun protection: The sun milk Soleil Emulsion SPF 25 supports a deep and, above all, even sun tan, successfully protects against UV rays and simultaneously cares for the skin with the oil in water formulation. It is applied half an hour before sunbathing and before setting off for a trip to one of the national parks or Coconut Beach in Khao Lak. The handy Soleil Stick Solaire SPF 30 is practical for trips as it fits in a backpack or hand bag. The sun protection is fast to apply and the slightly more solid cream even protects smaller areas such as the ears, the back of the nose or the feet when you're travelling by tuk-tuk/auto rickshaw in the streets of Bangkok or the Thai provinces.

Care: The revitalising aromatherapy concentrate Visarôme Atone pampers and regenerates the skin with the essential oils of peppermint, rosemary, sage and coriander whilst stimulating the senses. Perfect after a day full of adventures and visits to temples: Mix a few drops of this aromatherapy with some cold water and repeatedly moisten the skin with it and lay back and relax. N.B.: Visarôme Bath can be enjoyed classically warm as well as cold. In humid regions such as here in Thailand you can use the mixture of Visarôme and cold water to refresh and cool your body. The velvety soft, rapidly absorbed Spa L'Huile is an express wellness treatment which you can perform yourself in your hotel room with a view of the green fauna of Thailand. Extract of balloon vine, blackcurrant seed and sunflower strengthen the skin and make it extremely soft. Briefly warm the oil in the hands and then massage into neck, calves, feet or body, as desired.

Styling: The Magic Shadow Trio is made up of powdery colour pigments that give your lids a hint of glamour. The three matching shades create a wonderful make-up accent and are the perfect choice for an evening stroll past the richly adorned deity statues or a dance on the beach at full-moon events. The salt water spray Beach Effect Styling Spray creates sun-kissed beach waves in the hair and results in a silky matte, textured finish when you take a boat to the Phang Nga Bay and James Bond island.

... Cape Town

The second largest city in South Africa is situated on Table Bay on the Atlantic coast. Sights include the Table Mountain, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, historic buildings and the colourful houses of the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood. On Bloubergstrand Beach you'll see windsurfers. On Boulders Beach, on the other hand, you can swim with the penguins. A palm-lined promenade and white sand can be found on the famous Camps Bay where you can follow up sunbathing by chilling out in the many bars and pubs.

Include this in your make-up bag for a trip to Cape Town:

Sun protection: The sun milk Soleil Emulsion SPF 15 offers extensive protection and is suitable for skin that is already a little pre-tanned. The active ingredient from the sunflower seed, which is contained in all Soleil products, stabilises the skin's natural functions and is also intensively conditioning. For snowbirds who spend the winter in Cape Town, the cell-active anti-aging face cream Traitement Jour LSF 20 contains a highly effective day care with photostable UVA and UVB SPF system and long-term moisture effect. The cream is suitable for the face, neck and décolleté.

Care: To calm the facial skin after a day with water, wind, sun and maybe a trip to the coast, you can use the first aid mask Masque Hydro Sensitif. This contains the perfect combination of plant oils and extracts to rebuild the damaged skin barrier and supply the cells with plenty of moisture in just 20 minutes. To ensure the hair looks shiny for your sundown cocktail, it needs special care. Soleil After-Sun-Shampooing provides particularly gentle cleansing of sun-stressed hair, frees it from chlorine and salt residue, conditions it with a summery scent and protects it from dehydration. After a day on the sunlounger at Muizenberg Beach where you will see cheerfully colourful beach houses, Soleil Emulsion Après Soleil is a true miracleworker. The body milk pampers sun-stressed skin with sunflower extracts, Vitamin E acetate and sorbitol and combats free radicals. It can be generously applied to the whole body, moisturises and instantly softens the skin.

Styling: The conditioning styling cream Brillance Crème with natural lipids from beeswax and castor oil restores shine to dry and porous hair and also protects it against dehydration and damaging UV rays. Apply this cream sparingly, simply work into dry hair for curly or straight styles, and style as desired. During a romantic evening in one of the beautiful terrace restaurants with a glass of South African wine, the summery nail polish Brilliant Nail is a wonderful accessory. In the shades "Summer Pink" or "Rouge Noir" it provides impressive colour brilliance and lasts at least as long as the memories of your holiday.
