Desert Excursion: Skincare Products to Take With You

During a trek in the desert, it's crucial to carry the bare minimum in beauty and skincare products. But what are the essentials to have without overly burdening your backpack?

Sun protection, the number one essential for a trip in the desert.

The distinct characteristics of desert regions are the intense heat and strong, thus very harmful, sun rays. However,prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to an increased risk of photoaging, photodermatoses,pigment spotsand skin cancers. Therefore, it is imperative to protect your skin against the sun's UV rays.

As a reminder, There are four levels of SPF:

  • Of 6 to 15 for a low protection ;

  • Of 15 to 30 for a medium protection ;

  • From 30 to 50 for a high protection ;

  • Of 50+ for a very high protection.

Each index represents a percentage of UVB rays blocked. The choice of your sun protection level depends on your needs and your skin type. Darker skin tones can opt for an SPF30 while fair skin should prioritize an SPF50+.

Please note: Even though sunscreens protect against UV rays, it is recommended to limit sun exposure, especially in regions with a desert climate. For prolonged exposure to the sun, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours.

Do not overlook the hydration of the skin.

The desert is often subject to a windy climate. Coupled with UV rays, these weather conditions dry out the skin, causing it to dehydrate more quickly than in a more "urban" environment.

Indispensable, the moisturizing cream thus ranks among the essential beauty items to take with you when you travel to the desert. Indeed, to enhance the protection of your skin, it is appropriate to hydrate it regularly. This allows for the restoration and strengthening of the hydrolipidic barrier, which is responsible for skin protection against external aggressions. As usual, choose this care product based on your skin type. Opt for a minimalist format or one that is easy to store.

If you have sensitive, dry, normal, or combination skin, ourmoisturizing creamwith 9 ingredients is suitable. If you have oily skin, you should lean towards thepurifying cream Zinc PCA 4% + bamboo extract. Enriched with sebum-regulating and antibacterial agents, it purifies the skin and combats skin imperfections.

In the morning, the moisturizing cream should be paired with a sunscreen to maintain the skin's hydration throughout the day. In the evening, you can combine the moisturizer with an after-sun product to preserve your tan.

Hair care should not be left behind!

The skin is not the only one to suffer from the effects of UV rays and wind. Hair also needs to be protected to avoid a "straw-like" effect due to increased dehydration. If you're planning an excursion in the desert, don't forget to bring along a protective hair oil. This will help protect the hair fiber and keep it hydrated.

For instance, slip our rich oil for hair into your suitcase. Enriched with pequi and argan oil, it nourishes and restructures the hair fiber to protect it from heat. The result is soft, shiny, and manageable hair.

And of course, the deodorant...

An essential for a desert excursion. Heat promotes perspiration and, with it, unwanted odors. Choose one designed with natural ingredients and free of aluminum salts. To avoid irritating shaved underarms, favor deodorants based on 100% natural powders, oils, butters, waxes, and organic plant extracts.
