Holidays are fantastic at any time of the year, but especially in the middle of Winter as the weather gets colder, clouds get greyer and the days get shorter.
Whether you're one of those smug, clever people that booked a holiday months ago, or you've spontaneously decided you need to escape, our team at Kiana Beauty has you covered with our favourite travel beauty essentials matched to your holiday style.
Fleeing the cold for warmer climates? There's something so appealing about a tropical holiday at the beach or a resort to refuel the soul.
But don't forget to look after your skin and hair while you are enjoying those cocktails at the swim-up bar!
For protection from the sun
It goes without saying that you need a quality sunscreen to prevent those harmful UV rays from damaging your skin.
This is one of our favourites because at SPF 50+, it provides the maximum sun protection factor available in Australia and it is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. Plus, the spray oil is super easy to use and rub in.
For a radiant and glowing complexion
Napoleon Perdis Bronze Patrol, $60.00
Long-lasting, streak-free and with a light shimmer of gold, a swipe of this bronzer will give you radiant, glowing skin and have people wondering what your secret is.
To revive your hair from the salty ocean and swimming pool chlorine
We all love a swim in the ocean or the pool, but salt water and chlorine can damage your hair, making it dry and brittle. This deep conditioning treatment is packed with botanical extracts, and after just five minutes, your hair will feel soft, nourished and revitalised.
Hitting the slopes this year? Pack the right skincare products along with your snow gear to ensure you are ready to hit the bar for some apres ski.
Keep those lips kissable
Packed with vitamins, minerals and sunscreen, this lip balm will fit in your jacket pocket and keep lips soft and smooth all day long.
To relax those tired muscles
After a hard day on the slopes, what could be better than a steaming shower or a long soak in a hot bath? This silky shower gel will leave you clean, relaxed and smelling gorgeous.
Protect skin from the wind and cold
Exposure to the wind and cold can wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure you skin stays hydrated and soft with this daily moisturiser from revered French skincare brand Eau Thermale Avene, specially formulated for dry to very dry skin, including sensitive skin.
Holidaying with the kids? Along with the unbelievably large quantities of clothes, nappies, toys and books you'll no doubt be packing, don't forget about their bath and body products.
We've chosen natural Australian products which are gentle enough to use on delicate skin yet effective enough to wash away the remnants of a full day of play and adventure.
To keep little bodies and hair clean
Gentle enough for even the youngest members of your family, this soap-free cleansing gel doubles as a body wash for the bath or shower as well as a shampoo. Won't cause irritation or dryness, won't sting eyes and will leave hair silky and soft, the spill-proof flip top lid also makes this product perfect for the beach bag or swimming bag.
For soft and smooth skin
Non, greasy, super absorbent and 95% naturally derived, this moisturiser will keep your kiddies' skin soft, smooth and cuddly.
The easiest baby kit to throw straight into your suitcase
This super cute miniature set of GAIA Natural Baby body and hair products has everything you need to keep baby clean and smelling sweet when travelling. The pack comes in a handy reusable zip lock wet pack and the bottles can even be refilled for future trips.

Oli2015 was a momentous year for the team at Kiana Beauty!
We proudly launched our online store, had two children start school, welcomed two new babies, become a Grandmother again, watched one of our sons get married in stunning Sorrento - Italy, and experienced some magical moments with loved ones in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Italy, Switzerland and Greece. It has been an exhausting yet truly beautiful year.
We're all looking forward to slowing down the pace a bit over the summer and spending time with our families - with long lazy lunches, chilled champagne, siestas, and sand between the toes.
Here are our travel must-haves. The things we personally love to use in the summer holidays when it's all about minimal effort. But don't stress!! We're staggering our holidays so that it's still business as usual at Kiana Beauty.
