Fed up of heavy luggage but want to keep up with your wellness routine? Here’s a list of the best products for a healthy holiday that will take care of you and your body  

When you’re packing for last minute holidays the key words are light and versatile.  That’s what we were thinking when we hand-picked these natural healthy must-haves for your travel bag.

1. Konjac sponge 100% pure Konjac travel pack

Fear not, this 100% natural sponge exfoliates deeply while still being soft on skin as it exfoliates.  Perfect for holidays when a build up of sunscreen can cause irritation and breakouts, use it with a cleansing gel or oil. We also love the travel bag it comes with to keep your Konjac sponge protected on the go. Certified vegan and cruelty free.

2. Lifeplan Traveldophilus


If you take one supplement with  you make it a probiotic. These don’t require refrigeration and the handy sachets are easy to store, carry and use.  Suitable for either adults and children, you can mix the contents of the sachet in cold water or even sprinkle onto cold food. They’re super-high in active bacteria to help ward off any nasty bugs too.
