The cold weather is setting in around the nation and for many ladies, this may seem like the perfect time to take a spontaneous island getaway. Even though you'll likely throw any old outfits in a bag to jet set to a fabulous resort, there are a few beauty products you'll definitely want to bring along. Luckily, Allure magazine recently gave its best advice for items that all women need on a vacation.
Be prepared for landing
Despite the fact that you probably got up in the middle of the night to catch your early morning flight, you'll most likely want to look and feel refreshed when you land. The experts at the magazine report all ladies need to pack a refreshing face mist, a moisturizer, concealer and lip balm.
A great skin care product to travel with is La Thérapie Crème Hydrathérapie Intensive Hydration Cream for all skins since this hydrating cream helps ward off free radicals, while offering protection against daily pollutants - the latter might be a huge issue, especially during travel.
Packing Bliss products like Bliss Fabulips Softening Lip Balm is another must. This balm is enriched with shea butter, jojoba and grapeseed oil which works to keep your pout feeling hydrated and incredibly supple.
Bring your go-to toiletries
Even though most resorts and hotels offer their guests toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and soap in the rooms, these items may not be as moisturizing or gentle on your locks as your own hair products. This is why it might be a good idea to pack your own items - in 3 ounce containers.
Take along a luxurious wash like Elemis Spa At Home Skin Nourishing Shower Cream to enhance your stay. This gentle cream cleanses your skin while balancing out its acid mantle. The high levels of natural oils penetrate the skin, working to keep your body feeling nourished and moisturized. Since you'll likely be soaking up the sun on your vacation, you might also want to bring along a hair repair product like Steiner Rehab Hair Therapy for Damaged Hair. The cream works to nourish and strengthen locks as well as providing thermal protection from heat styling.
It may be nice to feel the warm sun on your face during your vacation, but it's also important to cover up your complexion with sunscreen products to prevent wrinkles and burns.
