Take the very best care of your body and face after traveling: Sebamed

The truth is, you never know when you might need the finest, most gentle cleansing and caring for your body and face, especially after traveling. You can get irritations from unfamiliar water, sun exposure, bug bites, hotel laundry detergents, strange flora and other causes. Recently, I was overseas at what must be the dirtiest hotel on the planet! You know you are, filth trap! Anyway, I got a rash that itches me so much, I've been scratching my legs until they run with blood and I can't stop. Dr.'s antibiotics and topical ointments have been taken. Eww!

Well, I still have to wash, I'm still going to (attempt to) shave and I clearly needed relief. My face was dehydrated, too. Sebamed to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it. This is a scientifically formulated line from Germany.

Cleansing Shower Oil has a "nutty" scent from the rich real avocado oil in the formula. It's not greasy, but creamy. It won't strip the natural oils from you skin.

Perhaps you're the minimalist type, you like to keep your personal care routine -- I won't call it "beauty" for you -- super simple. Liquid Face & Body Wash works for your whole self, without being too rich for oilier skins.

Their Cleansing Bar doesn't go against your 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag, and adds vitamins, lecithin and amino acids for extra-healthy skin.

Their Moisturizing Body Lotion -- like all of their products -- is formulated to have a pH level of 5.5. This is the pH of healthy skin, but most body products don't have it! It also has soothing, hydrating and gentle ingredients.

You'd be surprised how quickly your skin can age from hard traveling! Q10 Cream is a very rich lotion texture. Even if that's heavier than what you normally wear during the day, I have a suggestion for you! Slather it on your face, neck and decollete' right before a shower, let the goodness sink in. Then, makeup won't slide around!
