I hate packing for vacations. I stress over all the different scenarios I might wish I had brought this and that, to the point that I overpack with butloads of clothes I never end up wearing. The same goes with beauty products and especially makeup. Am I really going to want to to a smokey eye to a beachside, picnic table resteraunt in the Carribean? No. Vacations are really about feeling beautiful and free and not wanting to spend all that extra time fluffing and primping in the morning when I could be relaxing. In saying that, I still want to look and feel beautiful, however there are products we can use to minimize time but also ensure our skin, hair and makeup are well looked after and not being neglected. Vacations are no reason to totally let yourselves go ladies...
Here is a list of our must have beauty products to take with you on vacation:
Adara Coconut Oil-Purely organic and uber-nourishing, this Coconut Oil is a saviour for healing sunburnt skin as well as being an overall skin conditioner. Use
it in your hair as a conditioning treatment as well!
It's the first day of summer and are you ready for sunny happy hours, influx of hamburgers and hotdogs, and the amount of possible sun damage you might be exposing yourself to? Probably not and that isn't a real surprise. When I leave the house for work on Friday my thoughts aren't always on if I made sure I packed my sunscreen for that afterwork picnic, but if I'll need to re-touch my makeup prior to going.
Although its difficult, sun protection needs to be at the priority level of our beauty routine going into these warmer months and luckily great formulas and packaging to accommodate every lifestyle means there's not many more excuses we can give. To make the decision making process a lot easier take at our Summer SPF Guide:
I've fallen in love with not only Supergoop's mission to provide UV protection free of paragons, petrochemicals and fragrances but also their ingenious packaging to suit busy families on the move. Case in point: Supergoop SPF 30+ Endless Summer Pump that comes with a cut out circular handle that kids would love to bring to the car! It's lightweight and water resistant and ideal for every member of the fam, from fourth months of age and up!
Get your SPF sexy back with Soleil Organique. Their beautiful tan and gold packaging eludes 'I'm a high roller' plus each product is filled with anti aging and skin nourishing technologies as well as being made of 100% mineral and marine based actives. I'm a high maintenance girl and like to have a bit of my face on when going to the beach and don't want to wipe it off with sunscreen. My dream product for those who think like I do is Soleil Organiques 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45. Simply spritz your face like a toner a few times and you're covered and still looking fab of course.
