Holiday Skin Care

The long-awaited holiday season is upon us and not a day too soon! You deserve a fabulous time, so leave all your worries behind while we protect your future skin from the sun, late nights and pina coladas. 

We are not completely party poopers at Tej & Co– we need a bit of sun for vitamin D. Still, your skin wants you to sunbathe responsibly to avoid sunburn, skin cancer and premature ageing. Unless you need a torch, you need SPF!

Different climates need a bespoke approach so we will streamline your Dermaviduals routine into handy travel sizes. Relax, we’ve got this. 


One week before:

Step away from the sunbeds even if your limbs are ghostly pale – the damage from ageing UVA rays will come back to haunt you in years to come. Dermaviduals understand that the only safe tan is fake, so apply their silicone-free self-tan the night before, or we can custom blend a gradual tanner to suit your colouring.

Your Plane Journey Skincare Kit:

Your skin hates travelling by air. The low humidity (especially on long-haul flights) sucks moisture from the skin, turning it from a plump, juicy grape to a dried-up raisin.

    Hydrating Lotion

    Light as a feather, you can spray this lightweight summer moisturiser straight onto your skin to prevent tightness. 

      15mk SPF 30/50

      If you are lucky enough to land the window seat, remember that UVA can pass through glass and prematurely age your skin.

      Morning Holiday Skincare Routine

      You’ve arrived on your perfect holiday – yay! 


        Pre Sun Antioxidant Serum

        When you cut an apple in half, it oxidises and turns brown. Free radicals in pollution and UVA rays do the same to your skin, so let’s neutralise them with the Dermaviduals dream team of antioxidant serum and sunscreen. Free radicals don’t stand a chance.

          15ml SPF 30/50

          This skin-friendly sunscreen is so gloriously hydrating that you might not need a moisturiser underneath, and you won’t mind reapplying every two hours. We can even blend a tinted version!

          Beach  Routine

          Skincare can only do so much, so here are a few tips:

          Skin summer ready

          SPF clothing and hats

          SPF caps protect the forehead, but try a wide-brimmed hat to protect the whole face.

            UV sunglasses

            Sunglasses hide a multitude of sins and protect the delicate eye area from sun damage. Avoid metal aviators that reflect UVA rays onto the eye area; stick to plastic wide-rimmed sunnies instead.

              Stay in the shade

              Who wants to fry their skin? You will thank us in 20 years when your peers have skin-like leather handbags. 

                Save the cocktails for nighttime

                New studies show that alcohol combined with UV exposure weakens your immune system and increases your risk of skin cancer.

                  Keep a facial spritz in your bag

                  If you are starting to feel flush, spritz your skin with Dermaviduals Moisturising Toner to cool it down and boost hydration without blocking your pores.

                    If you start to burn, get out of the sun fast!

                    Please don’t tell us you need to go red before going brown! UV exposure triggers melanin production, leading to a tan; redness is your skin’s way of repairing the damage. Peeling helps shed damaged cells before they turn cancerous and makes you lose your tan faster—yikes! 

                    PM Holiday Skincare Routine

                    No one wants red, blotchy, post-sun skin, so let’s replace what the sun has taken out.


                    Bespoke Aftersun Serum

                    We will blend an aftersun serum rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to repair the damage and calm redness from the sun, wind and air conditioning. 

                    Vitamin Lotion/Hydrating Lotion.

                    If moisture-rich sea air affects your microbiome, your usual moisturiser might slide off or block your pores. Dehydrated summer skin lacks water, not oil, so swap your cream for a lighter lotion. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated because sweating causes it to lose fluids and salts.

                    Acne suncare advice: enzyme, enzyme, enzyme.

                    At Tej & Co, we warn clients that acne is an inflammatory condition, so their skin will look redder in the heat. They might also experience a post-holiday flare from the build-up of dead skin (the skin thickens to protect itself). Enzyme daily before a hot holiday, and take them with you to avoid blocked pores. 

                    Rosacea suncare advice: chill!

                    Alcohol and the sun are rosacea’s worst nightmare. Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition, so leave when you feel hot. Don’t allow UV rays to disrupt your delicate skin microbiome.

                      20ml Aloe Vera

                      If you have some green aloe vera lurking at the back of the bathroom cabinet – it has been dyed green – chuck it out! Your skin deserves better than that. Neat Aloe Vera is clear and will take down heat in inflamed skin.
