While you are away…
It’s so important to take care of your skin, particularly in the summer months and on holidays – the change to your usual environment, the high UV, and salt water or chlorine can play havoc with your skin and hair.
UV ProtectionProtect your skin against the sun with Meraki sun cream. The SPF 30 sun cream is effective against UVA and UVB rays. The sun cream is very water-resistant and fast absorbing. It is fragrance free and suitable for both adults and children, the SPF 30 is effective protection against the sun rays while also gently moisturising your skin. Meraki sun cream carries the Danish Asthma and Allergy Association label as well as the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
After a long day in the sun, it is important to provide your skin with lots of moisture and cooling relief – whether you are sitting under a parasol or on a towel in your garden! Therefore, Meraki has created a wonderful after-sun sorbet which is cooling, nourishing and moisturising. Meraki after sun sorbet is fragrance free and fast absorbing.
Pamper Your Skin While AwayMeraki and Mirins make a range of skin care heroes well worth room in your suitcase. The Meraki sheet mask is a pleasure to use – effective but mild it’s great for even sensitive skin – and leaves your face feeling soft and refreshed. The Meraki mild and nourishing face cream with wheat extract, sunflower oil and Shea Butte adds moisture and cares for your skin. This cream strengthens your skin’s natural elasticity and minimises the fine lines.
Meraki make-up cleansing wipes are a great holiday hero – gentle and effective cleansing in a handy pack. The Meraki mist is another product that’s a pleasure to use – especially on hot days – a nourishing and moisture-giving Face Mist with organic Aloe Vera as well as cucumber and camomile extract. Meraki’s Face Mist is both firming and calming on the skin, keep it cool for a refreshing summer spritz. You can also use the Face Mist as a restyling product for curly hair.

Before you go…
Exfoliate for that wonderful, fresh summer glow. We have various exfoliators available – from the soap filled exfoliating mitt and exfoliating firm sponge with bamboo handle to the Meraki salt scrub or Mirins Purify body scrub. Treat your face to a more gentle, nourishing cleanse with one of the Mirins Facial Clay Masks – these facial masks double as a cleanser and gentle exfoliant. They remove dead skin cells and draw out toxins while also nourishing the skin. Meraki also make a gentle exfoliator for the face, a mild exfoliating cream that gently cleans the skin of dead skin cells and activates cell renewal. It is also rich in ingredients that nourish and moisturise your skin so it is left with a soft and radiant glow.

My favourite towels for taking away on my travels are the organic cotton wrap towels – lightweight but absorbent these towels are generous in size and wrap beautifully around the body due to the clever design. Available in three sizes: the large wellness wrap and mid-size wrap are great to use on the beach too.If you prefer a softer, fluffier option, but the like eco-credentials of organic cotton take a look at the organic cotton travel towels, terry weave towels or cosy waffle towels.
If you like a hammam style towel – so fashionable these days and perfect for holidays – take a look at our white and taupe Hammam towel. This large, soft and light-weight towel is 100% cotton, although a generous 100x180cm in size it folds down neatly to fit easily into your luggage. Our ultra soft fringed towels have asimilar look but with a deep terry pile. Our cotton pique towels are another good option – soft and light-weight yet absorbent, these beautiful towels are faster drying than a traditional heavy weighted towel.
We also have a wide range of bath robes, light kimono robes and holiday friendly nightwear and lounge-wear. Check out our Nightwear & Robes collection to see the full range.
