The Travel Series
New York City
Whether it’s squeezing into that nook on the subway, or meandering around the many different people that stomp through Times Square, it’s hard not to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the city that arguably boasts the very best fashion and culture in the Northern Hemisphere, New York.
Coming into contact with multiple forms of pollution is inevitable in New York. It’s very easy for the skin on your body and face (especially) to feel the impact of the city, fast. But don’t let that stop you from visiting the city that never sleeps…
On a recent trip to the big apple, we tasked a member of the AHL team to identify the problems that they had and partnered up the products that would have minimised these problems for them!

“After day 2/3 my skin started to feel extremely dehydrated and I started to get small pimples around my shoulders and top of my back, something I have had before but came on quite dramatically after landing!”
SOLUTION: New Skin Body
Firstly, it is imperative than when travelling to new climates, ample amount of water is drunk to maintain internal hydration levels. We often forget that our skin is our body’s largest organ and so needs to be at the top of our priority list when we travel. In addition to that, look no further than our Advanced Glycolic Body Scrub. This award-winning scrub contains a wonderful combination of both glycolic and fruit acids to resurface the top few layers of the skin, which means you can say goodbye to scaly dry skin and hello to a fresh, smooth canvas. It also contains Aloe Vera which will really help to soothe the skin and reduce any inflammation which could be contributing to the breakouts.
◇ Glycolic and fruit acids refine and polish the skin ensuring rapid exfoliation
◇ Aloe Vera refreshes and soothes skin
◇ Vegan friendly
All the products mentioned above are travel friendly and you can even keep your Ultimate Face and Illuminating Face Mist in your hand luggage so if you need a little moisture or colour top up mid-flight, we’ve got you covered.
