Girl On The Glow: Travel Tips For The Solo Female Traveller
You’re finally going for it. After months of deliberation, weighing up the pros and cons, planning, financing and blocking out all those that tell you: you can’t do it, it’s dangerous, why would you want to do that? – you’re ready to embrace your solo travel adventure.
Travelling alone is liberating, exciting and can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. But don’t worry – here you’ll find some tips for the solo female traveller.
If you’re travelling anywhere, be it alone or on holiday with your family. Then you need to make sure that you’re ready for anything. Investing in United Healthcare medical insurance for travel is just as important as your plane tickets and passport. So, don’t travel without it!
Get items that multitask
Travelling for a length of time means that you’re limited to the space you have when it comes to packing. The last thing you need is to have an overflow of products everywhere or the extra worry and effort of lugging around another rucksack. The trick is to choose products that work for you. A pen knife is a great example of a travellers essential item. Whether you’re opening a bottle with your new friends or slicing up fruit on the beach. It’s something many travellers don’t travel without. Another perfect combo – is a compact hairbrush that also doubles as a mirror.
Worried about you hair and makeup? Get yourself some dry shampoo that doubles as a volumizer. Choose a sunscreen that will also work as a great moisturiser. If you’re still unsure then try to think small instead.
All those product freebies we get in magazines or subscription boxes? They make the perfect travelling companions as they’re so small and compact.
Go hard or go home
Ever heard of hard or solid cosmetics? Solid shampoo and conditioner bars are widely available and generally last around 4-6 weeks, making them ideal for travelling. Simply place the bars into their metal pots when you’re done and voila! They take up much less room than your classic shampoo/conditioner bottles and won’t leak all over your stuff! And due to their non-existent packaging – they’re great for the environment too.
Time of the month
Travelling when you’re on your period isn’t easy or fun. But don’t worry, you don’t have to travel with piles and piles of tampons or pads carefully hidden in your rucksack. Most female travellers swear by menstrual cups instead! It’s just a small, simple silicone cup that’s worn internally. They’re extremely comfortable, discreet, can be worn for any activity, 100 % leak proof, can be worn for up to 8 hours and you can sleep with it in too. Simply empty the cup when you need to. They’re incredible!
No more searching for tampons in the middle of nowhere, no more bulky supplies, or the worry of running out before your time is up. Menstrual cups last forever. So, you won’t need to worry about replacing it any time soon. This also makes them a much better alternative for the environment!
