Do you ever wonder what skin care you should take on vacation?
If you’re a skincare aficionado, like me, you bring e-v-e-r-y-thing. But, if you’re a minimalist when packing, here are a few must-haves you won’t want to leave behind.
From hydrating the skin, to freshening up your vacation accommodations, to clothes that go anywhere and everywhere, and a few other essentials. I’m sharing with you exactly what I pack when I travel. And guess what? You’re right. You can purchase any of these items from my Spa and Boutique.
A Face Toner
You know, airplane cabins have extremely low humidity, which causes dryness and dehydration in the skin.
A favorite hydrating toner of mine is Skin Script Cucumber Toner. Not only can this face toner be used for some significant hydration for your skin, but you can also use it to blend and set your makeup or refresh and revive your look throughout the day. – great for the plane – beach – and especially the dry Aspen air.
If your skin is dehydrated after a long flight, you can apply some Intraceuticals Opulence Hydration Gel to keep your skin bright, hydrated, and firmer!
It’s like waving a magic wand, revitalizing the skin from the inside out.
I also like this because it’s small enough to fit into your toiletry case and is under the TSA limit in a carry-on, making it perfect for travel.
Freshen Up Your AirBnB
Do you travel with a candle? I do. Staying at an Airbnb or hotel, you never know what it will smell like, and I like to be prepared – Plus, a candle makes any space homey.
The first things I do upon arrival are buying some fresh flowers and light my favorite scented candle.
Love Your Hair
One hair accessory I wouldn’t leave home without is my yoga clip.
As its name implies, it’s made for your yoga or pilates class, so you don’t have to keep moving your ponytail or hair clip while lying on your back. It also keeps your hair up on lazy days and still looks stylish when going straight to lunch, dinner, or happy hour.
I also love them because you can wear them on the plane, your hairstyle looks together, and it won’t jab you as you lean back in your airplane seat.
Vacation Wear Clothing
I’ve been living in this dress this summer – wear it alone, tie it with a half cardigan, wear it with a tee tied high to show off the waist, or with your favorite jean jacket. Plus, you can dress it up or down with heels or sandals. This dress goes anywhere and everywhere.
