As the school year continues, we find ourselves going on vacation. February vacation, spring break, April vacation, it’s happening now and vacationing is what people love to do most. In fact, lots of people I know tend to forget all about things when on vacation. The first thing they tend to forget about is their diet and health. Next on the list is their skin.
Seriously, I know that you’ve slacked during your vacations in the past. Heck, none of us are perfect and we all make mistakes. If you’ve slipped up in the past, then I’m going to give you a pass.
However, moving forward you have no excuse. I’m arming you with all the information you need in order to vacation like a boss all while keeping your skin looking fresh to def. Even if you’re not planning any vacations in the forthcoming months, the summer weather will be here and you can then take full advantage of this information I’m sharing.
Vacation Time Doesn’t Need To Result In Poor Skin Care
If you’re planning to escape to warmer weather during the most popular vacation months of the year, then you’re in luck. I’m here today to share some simple tips which will help keep your skin on point while enjoying margaritas poolside or at the beach. You’ve got to prepare and the best way to do so is by adopting a sunny weather skin care routine.
Don’t worry, I totally get it. You’re not going to spend your precious time doing a crazy 10 or 15 step routine.
Trust me, I’m am not going to sit here and suggest that. There are other ways to approach this without destroying your skin.
The first product I’m going to cover is sunscreen. I know, I sound like a broken record but it’s just that important to not leave off the agenda. You’ll want to find a sunscreen that doesn’t contain any fragrances or something called oxybenzone which is an ingredient people are hating on these days (for good reason).
As for actual products, you’ll want to go with one of the following listed below. I’ll kick things off by suggesting the use of a product done by Drunk Elephant. It’s called Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Sunscreen. Sure, it’s a bit pricey at roughly $30 – $35 but it works like a charm due to the high zinc oxide that it contains. You’ll also find that this contains antioxidants and something known as marula oil.
Next on the list of sunscreen options is the Cosrx Aloe Vera Sunscreen which is great for reducing inflammation and keeping the redness away. It’s super affordable and an SPF 50 to boot. You can get this for as low as $11 if you shop on Amazon.
Now, if you don’t like either of those sunscreen options, then I suggest you read this page here. I’ve laid out other options which you can consider.
The next product that you might want to consider working in during your vacation is something called Weleda Skin Food. It’s a product that most people love (especially makeup artists) and they do so likely for the healing and hydrating that this can do. If you do by chance get a sunburn, then you can count on this product to help you out. It’ll help diminish, even eradicate those pesky burns for good. The best part, this is easy to travel with and costs less than $20.
Another product which you may want to consider using during your vacation is the Cosrx Snail Mucin. It most certainly helps improve your skin hydration levels after putting in a long day out in the sun. Again, a product for under $20 which can be a lifesaver at times.
Last but not least is the face mask. Sheet masks are so convenient when on vacation because they pack a mean punch and are easy to travel with. One that lots of people like to use when out in the sun is the My Beauty Diary Aloe Vera Face Mask. It’s great for reducing redness and only requires about fifteen minutes of your time after being out in the sun all day long.
See, that’s all it takes. No need for any messy products or long routines, just use the right ones that count at the right time and you’ll be good to go. Safe traveling and enjoy your vacation!
