Vacations are a great time to relax, let go a little, get away from life’s stresses, and have some fun. But, this freedom doesn’t stop you from wanting to look your best. When you’re packing for your vacation, you won’t want to take everything out of your closet and makeup bag, so it’s key to make sure you pack the right things. Pack these beauty essentials and you’ll have everything you need to look great on vacation, whether you are chilling by the pool or taking in the local nightlife.
While you may not want to be packing loads of hair products and appliances, a Vibrastrait straightener is so useful. You might be thinking that you’re not that bothered about having straight hair on holiday. But, straighteners give you so many options. Use them to create cool curls, clamp them on to braids before untying them to leave you with lasting beachy waves, straighten, or just add a little volume. Straighteners give you a great way to change your hairstyle mid-way through the day without having to blow-dry or spend hours styling.
Sunscreen is an absolute must on any vacation. Even if you’re not going anywhere particularly hot or you don’t usually burn, you can never tell what damage the sun is doing to your skin. Make sure you apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go outside and then reapply regularly for the best protection.
After-sun is great for repairing burnt or damaged skin. But, even if you don’t burn, after-sun is a great way to restore some of your skin’s moisture and keep it soft and youthful.
You might not want to take your best most expensive jewelry on holiday. Instead, get a few inexpensive fashion pieces that can easily brighten up and add a bit of sparkle to any outfit. This way you get to dress up even your most basic holiday clothes without worrying.
Your lips can be the first thing to suffer in a hot climate, especially if you are also sleeping less, eating poorly, and drinking more alcohol than usual. Lip balm or gloss with an added SPF is essential to keep them soft and shiny. If you want a little more glamor, go for a tinted option or a lipstick with added aloe.
A Statement Hat and Sunglasses
Hats and sunglasses are another essential when it comes to protecting yourself from the sun. As you are going to be wearing them so much, why not go for some fun options such as an oversized brim or colorful frames. If you are packing a hat, make sure it’s safe to flatten.
A Lightweight Scarf
Even when visiting a warm destination, you should be prepared for some cooler nights. Packing a large, lightweight scarf means you’ve always got something to cover your shoulders when it gets cold. Go for a neutral color so it works with all your outfits.
Remember to relax, have fun, and be safe wherever you are going on your summer vacation.
