We all know that maintaining healthy, glowing skin when you're living out of a suitcase can be challenging to say the least. It would be fair to say that Katie Flood, the vivacious kiwi Chief Stewardess from the hit Bravo reality series Below Deck: Mediterranean, is more familiar with those challenges than most.
Kirsty recently caught up with US based Katie while she was back in New Zealand for a long awaited catch up with family & friends.
So what is important to Katie when it comes to skincare?
She is always looking for the highest quality natural skincare products, that are not only effective but fit well in her busy lifestyle and always being on the move. And she especially loves buying quality New Zealand products which are hard to get in Europe.
“It’s hard finding quality natural skincare on the road, especially from New Zealand! So I loved being able to stock up on my Hark&Zander products on my recent trip home.”
Constant long haul flights, being exposed to in-flight air conditioning, the Mediterranean sun and salt air can wreak havoc on your skin, so ensuring she keeps her skin hydrated and protected against environmental damage is top priority for jet-setting Katie.
“I especially love the cleanser and face oil!”
Dual-action products are amazing when you're traveling and also saves space in your toiletry bag. Our HempTonic Face Oil comes in a 30ml bottle which means you can take it in your carry on luggage and use as both an oil cleanser and moisturiser in-flight. A fast and easy must have to keep up your skincare routine while on the road.
Our top tip: No room to pack shaving cream? A few squirts of our oil cleanser that Katie loves, will make your razor glide over your skin in no time, leaving you with silky smooth beach ready skin!
Another product that is a must-have on your packing list, especially when frequenting sun, sand and pools is HempLavish Nourishing Body Oil. HempLavish will protect your skin from the elements, giving it a gorgeous all-over glow.
If you haven't tried Hark & Zander before, you can be assured that our products are sourced from nature's finest ingredients, cruelty free, vegan & sustainable! Kind to both people and our beautiful planet.
