When traveling, I cannot express the importance of packing a really good beauty bag and skin regime. Travel affects my skin in so many ways (hydration is a huge issue), from the dehydrating plane rides, to the sun exposure and after sun care, its important you’re ready for everything! I don’t pack too much makeup with me when I travel to hot climates, I like to get a tan on my face and let my skin breathe, soak in the salt water etc. If I do bring some with me however, I always make sure the products help accentuate my after sun glow rather than cover everything up. See more of my getaway glam must-haves below…
Living Proof Humidity Shield Spray, $14
I first tried this humidity shield spray while in Palm Springs last June (perfect time to test it out if any, the humidity there is nuts!) and I was so impressed. I knew I had to bring this along with me to Mexico on my honeymoon. My hair gets super frizzy out in the heat, especially when I let it air dry, so this was perfect for smoothing any fly aways down.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion, $20
As I mentioned above, I like to let my hair air dry while on vacation for a laid back vibe. I naturally have waves in my hair, so to make it extra beachy (like the wind, salt and water create this combo), I love the Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion spray. It gives my hair that texture I want and makes styling long locks super easy while on vacation.
Vichy Thermal Water Spray, $9.50
Another fave of mine is the Vichy Thermal Water Facial Spray. I use this on the plane when I need a little pick me up, as well as while I’m out in the sun and need a refresher on my face. Love this stuff!
Charlotte Tilbury Super Model Body, $65
After a day of sun and you’re feeling your new glow, I love to play it up with Charlotte Tilbury’s “Super Model Body” lotion. I apply this roller ball to my shoulders and collar bone to give my skin some shimmer for dinner. It just makes you feel like Gisele, even if just for a few hours *wink*
Marc Jacobs Lipstick in “Sonic Truth”, $38
My go-to (always) but especially on vacation is a nude lip. I think a bronzed glow and a nude lip is the most gorgeous combo. This one is my fave!
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco, $49
Whenever I want to smell like a vacation, I spray some Vanille Coco on! My husband loves this scent because it’s so sweet.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, $25
Another fave of mine (that smells like a dream by the way!) – I use this exactly where the name of the product tells you to (ha!). I just love this for keeping hydrated and firming up my skin in areas that will be more exposed while wearing a swimsuit. Keep the booty tight!
Sun Bum Sunscreen, $20
I love this line because it’s one of the cleanest in terms of ingredients when it comes to sunscreen. I’ve tried a lot of “natural, vegan, cruelty free” sunscreens from the health food store and I always still burn, this has all of those benefits (including no parabens) and actually protects against the skin!
Supergoop Acai Lip Fusion SPF 30, $9.50
My lips get burned out in the sun, and I’ve learned the importance of having a good lip balm with SPF on hand! This one did a great job in the heat wave in Acapulco.
Maestro Glow Giorgio Armani, $64
I love adding a bit of this to my foundation to warm up my skin tone and match the rest of the colour on my body. It adds a nice glow to your foundation or tinted moisturizer that’s perfect for summer!
