Summer holidays

Necessities to pack

Lighten your routine while packing essential self-care items when traveling!


Packing is never an easy task, especially when you get to your toiletries bag. You may wish you could bring the contents of your entire vanity, but to avoid excess baggage charges you have to pick and choose.


Travel light

Whether you're taking the train or a plane with just cabin luggage, you probably won't be able to bring your "full size" products. 


If your favourite cosmetics are in containers over 100 ml, remember to put them in containers made for travel of 100-ml or less.

The Discovery Kit includes: Two masks -- the Mineral Mask and the Exfoliating Mask, a plant-based cleanser and makeup remover for daily skin cleaning without drying; an Express Radiance Ice Cube to revitalise tired skin during your trip; and a sample of super-active cream to apply just afterwards. 



Necessities for your face 

Whether you're leaving for a weekend or three weeks, you have to reduce your regimen down to the strictly necessary. In the city, in the mountains or at the beach, a sunblock is always a summer must. The Oligo Protect Cream SPF30 moisturises and helps prevent skin ageing. Its anti-UVA/UVB sunscreens form a protective barrier against UV rays and other environmental factors that could damage your skin. 


Botanical Milk is an all-in-one skincare product that is used for cleaning your skin morning and night. With an ultra-light texture, it removes makeup, impurities and toxins while leaving your skin clean, soft and soothed.  Rather than bringing packets of cotton pads, bring reusable Anne Semonin Cellulose Sponges that swell into a regular shape when rinsed in warm water. 


For your serum, choose Phytorosa Serum. Ideal for summer, its double action prepares your skin for the sun and heightens your tan during the day, while soothing and nourishing your skin in the evening. 


Never without your mask? Bring the Cream Mask with you as a night cream: just add 5 drops of Phytorosa Serum for repairing and deep-nourishing your skin after sun exposure. In this way, you can avoid dryness and peeling. 


Finally, take advantage of your bronzed look to skip makeup entirely and let your skin breathe. We recommend an eye/toner/lip palette, a waterproof mascara and lipstick for evenings out. 



Necessities for the body 

Two days before leaving, schedule a complete body scrub session in one of our Anne Semonin spas. Pressed for time? Gently massage your skin in the shower with a circular motion using Exfoliating Shower Gel or Nude Body Scrub. The exfoliating help eliminate dead cells and prepare your skin for the sun's gentle rays, giving you an even, lasting tan.


To protect your skin during the day, bring a sunscreen with a high protection factor.  In the evening, moisturise your skin after showering with one of the Anne Semonin Body Oils with a blend of high-quality plant oils enriched with luxurious essential oils. Their 100 ml travel size makes them extremely practical! The hardest thing is trying to choose between the toning, refreshing Energising Body Oil, the anti-oxidant and anti-aging Vitamin Rich Body Oil, the cleansing and stimulating Detox Body Oil or the relaxing, sublime Nourishing Oil!






Necessities for the plane

Long-haul flights are hard on your skin. The extremely dry air is dehydrating, while the lack of sleep and jet lag prevents our cells from properly regenerating.  The night before your departure, we suggest you use a hydrating facial mask like the Anne Semonin Gel Mask enriched with marine elements and luxurious essential oils. Eat fruits and vegetables that hold a lot of water. Remember to bring a few baby carrots and some spears of cucumber, celery and apples as a snack.  And especially, stay hydrated by drinking water frequently! 


Hydrate your skin as often as needed with a cream.  For example, the Dheanne Cream provides optimal protection against environmental factors, with diosgenin that activates cellular renewal. 


To avoid dark circles, slip an Express Radiance Ice Cube into your bag to instantly lift and brighten tired eyes. 


If your skin has a tendency to dry quickly during a long trip, we suggest regularly moisturising your skin with a thermal water spray and apply a mask for a few minutes. The Daily Musts Coffret contains 4 kinds of single-use masks. Choosethe nourishing, soothing Cream Mask during the flight and the Gel Mask for a dose of radiance and moisturising before you arrive. Finally, avoid wearing makeup to keep your pores clear during those long hours above the clouds.
