The weather is becoming darker and colder, and if you’re like me, it’s got you longing for your upcoming family holiday abroad or staycation. There’s only one snag: you haven’t sorted all your family holiday essentials yet, so you’re on the lookout for versatile skincare products that can be used by everyone so that you don’t have to pack your entire bathroom. My solution? Multi-purpose skincare is the space-saving answer – so you won’t have to make any compromises!
I’ve put together three of the best family skincare products that deserve a spot in your toiletry bag. Whether you’re looking for essentials for family camping or heading off to sunnier climates, these multi-purpose skincare products will make sure you are prepared…
1. A Calming Balm
Family Essential: Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm
Multi-purpose Benefits: Soothes nappy rash, chapped lips, dry skin, and angry blemishes. Helps skin to heal, protects cuts, hydrates and smooths dry and rough skin patches, repairs cracked heels and softens cuticles.
The Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm is like a levelled-up Vaseline, able to be used anywhere on the body and by the whole family. The 100% natural formula helps to soothe and protect the skin, creating the optimum conditions for healing cuts, grazes and cracked skin thanks to the antibacterial tea tree. The balm has a thick melting texture that covers the skin in a protective and soothing balmy veil that keeps you comfortable and nourished.
2. A Healing Cream
Family Essential: Avene Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream
Multi-purpose Benefits: Heals skin irritations such as burns, sunburn, grazes, cuts, skin chaffing, and rashes, including nappy rash. Babies, children and adults can use it.
The Avene Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream is a family holiday essential because it does it all; soothing rashes, burns, cuts, and so much more. Its light and fresh cream texture is easy to apply and sinks into the skin; even wriggling babies will benefit from the quick application, instantly soothing and helping speed up healing to just 48 hours. The whole family can have comfortable and well-cared-for skin thanks to the infusion of Avene’s Thermal Water, which helps to calm and relieve any redness or irritation due to balancing postbiotic properties.
3. A High Protection SPF
Family Essential: Escentual Sunscreen SPF50+
Multi-purpose Benefits: Protects against sunburn and a broad spectrum of UVA and UVB rays for adults and children while nourishing skin with vitamin e.
SPF is essential all year round, especially when you and the family are out and about and in the sun. The Escentual SPF50+ is one for all the family, even babies over six months old. It has a lightweight creamy texture that protects skin from sun damage. The non-greasy formula doesn’t stain clothes or leave a white cast after you rub it in, either. On top of being a holiday essential for you, you can help another family have their essentials sorted by buying an Escentual sunscreen because for every one bought; we donate one to a child in need of one as part of our Sun Poverty initiative.
