Ziplining through the forest canopy, trekking through verdant rainforests, spotting hornbills in Borneo: all these are amazing, adrenaline-filled adventures, but let’s face it, they're also… messy. How does one look good while exploring the great outdoors? 

In a hot, humid environment, you don’t want to clog your pores with heavy moisturizer. For the same reason, stay away from foundation and powder, as it will melt off your face about 10 minutes into your adventure. If you need coverage, go for a non-greasy tinted moisturiser with sunscreen. Ditch the eyeliner and keep it simple with waterproof mascara and lip stain. 

You’d be surprised at what you can pull off with a little planning! Here are some beauty finds for those aiming to go trekking, ziplining or spelunking in wild tropical rainforests – which are beautiful, but also located in hot and humid climates.

Stila Lip & Cheek Stain in Acai Crush

Stila’s lip and cheek stain comes in delicious berry shades, and this particular shade is not named Acai Crush for the colour: the lip stain is infused with acai, which has immunity-boosting and antioxidant properties.  

That’s all for now. Have thrilling adventures in style, and don't forget the sunscreen!
