Clean & Green Solutions For Your Camping Holiday Challenges

Heading out to the countryside to get reacquainted with nature after what feels like the longest time? A camping holiday can be relaxing, revitalising and grounding, it can also be a beauty-lovers biggest challenge... eek!

Here are our top tips to help solve your camping beauty challenges with style & grace this summer:

Camping challenge #1 - No shower for days…   

Let’s be honest… this is probably one of the biggest challenges that camping brings to anyone, let alone a natural-beauty lover. Camping days are often long days in the elements; wind, rain, sun, hail with lots of activity, leaving the majority of us a sweaty, stinky mess.

Nourished solution - Black Chicken | Axilla Natural Deodorant this all natural deodorant paste is a cult favourite, all the way from Australia (which means it has been tried & tested on Aussie camping trips in the Outback).  Harnessing the natural powers of Kaolin Clay, Shea Butter, Tapioca Starch, Organic Coconut Oils make this natural deodorant paste effective and able to absorb moisture and combat odour producing bacteria to keep you fresh & dry on your camping adventure. One tub fits all thanks to its versatile and refreshing scent. 

For those of you with bi-cab sensitivity or sensitised skin, Nourished Daily has you covered with the Natural Deodorant Cream - Early Spring. A 100% natural formulation with  a fresh unisex scent that evokes new green life with soft floral notes of Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang & Vanilla. For everybody, every day.

Camping challenge #2 - Bad hair days

And of course along with no shower for days also comes the dreaded bad hair. Not that we want to overwash our beautiful hair, stripping it of its natural oils, but there's something about camping that brings out the worst when it comes to your coiffure. Greasy, limp hair, stuck to the back of your head is definitely a camping challenge one hopes to overcome. 

Nourished Solution - Nourished x Romy | Dry Shampoo + Styling Powder + Scalp Treatment made from 100% natural ingredients including Oat Kernel Flour & Brahmi this Dry Shampoo will remedy greasy roots in an instant, lift dull, flat hair and add thickness & volume for impeccable styling whilst star ingredients Colloidal Oatmeal & Aloe work to nourish & hydrate hair fibres, calm scalp irritation & promote skin health. The natural Vanilla and Cedarwood scent leaves you not only with a beautiful ‘do, but also heavenly scented hair.   

Camping challenge #3 - Bugs + beasties 

Mosquitoes, fly’s, midges, ants… just a few of God's many beautiful creatures that no one wants to see, hear or feel whilst on a camping holiday. We have had many camping trips tainted by sleepless nights scratching and itching bites from these beasts. BUGS BE GONE! 

Nourished Solution - Eco Tan |  Organic Citronella Personal Outdoor Spray unlike most personal spray’s and bug repellants, Eco Tan has created this effective spray free from synthetic ingredients and harsh chemicals. This clever formulation includes Lemon Eucalyptus, Citronella, Basil, Lemongrass and Cedarwood and is refreshing, uplifting and scares away the bugs & beasties using only certified organic and natural ingredients sourced from Mother Nature.

Camping challenge #4  - Sanitising on-the-go

More important than ever and not only a camping challenge these days…. how to sanitise hands and personal items without washing non-stop and without using toxic options that ruin our skin microbiome and impact our own inborn immune defence system?

Nourished Solution - Bondi Wash | Hand Spray This naturally anti-bacterial, low- alcohol formulation is lab-tested and proven to kill 99.99% of germs, virus & bacteria naturally whilst being gentle on your skin. This non- drying formula is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to soothe and soften the skin. The perfect size for your backpack, fanny-pack, or cargo-pant pocket. 

Nourished Solution - Bondi Wash | Travel Spray Who doesn't like fresh clothes, hands and luggage while traveling? This travel spray is scented with Lemon Tea Tree and Mandarin to deodorise, clean and kill 99.9% of germs! Perfect for freshening your clothes in between washes. Bye-bye travel odours.

Camping challenge #5 - Exposure to the elements 

We know you’re all hanging out to get your skin under the sun but remember…. the health of your skin is important for so many reasons! Save this living, breathing organ that covers & protects you from it’s biggest predator, the sun by using a natural sunscreen 

Nourished Solution - Little Urchin Natural Sunscreen SPF30 this natural sunscreen has an SPF 30 protection factor, is water & sweat resistant for up to 3 hours & protects from both sunburn & premature skin ageing. Little Urchin Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 has a low irritation formula and is suitable for people with sensitive skin including allergy sufferers, babies, children & pregnant women.
