The warm weather is slowly creeping into parts around the nation, making it the perfect to plan that romantic getaway with your beau, or a girls' only trip for the books. If you're ready to embark on a fun and adventurous romp in the sun, there are a few things you'll need to remember to pack prior to jetsetting away. Cosmopolitan magazine recently listed the best beauty and style items ladies need to feel fabulous and fresh on the go.
Bold nail polish
Nothing says you're ready for sun and fun quite like a beautiful coat of bright professional nail polish. Even though many fashion mags are pegging lighter hues like cream or light pink as the season's must-haves, bold, vibrant hues are much sassier on vacation.
You can fall somewhere in between with CND Nail Colour - Pinks in Guava to stand out and enhance your gorgeous tan.
Keep dry hands at bay
Dry hands might not be a big deal at home, since the majority of your co-workers and friends are also plagued by the same issues thanks to the colder weather and lower humidity, but you won't want such dry hands while on vacation - they could totally ruin your chances with that hot local.
To avoid this issue without feeling overly greasy, Cosmo suggests bringing a long a light hand cream like the Elemis Spa At Home Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream to get the job done. Not only will this cream improve your dry skin, it will also help prevent and reduce age spots and sun damage, which is perfect while you're soaking up the sun.
There is perhaps nothing worse on vacation or even in your day-to-day life than feeling your hair start to frizz up. Whether you have full on curls, or are just susceptible to frizz and flyaways in the humidity, this issue is a major fashion faux-pas. Luckily, there are tons of hair products on the market that help to tame this issue, and packing at least one serum for your upcoming getaway is a must.
Using just a few squirts of the Steiner Shine Drops Hair Serum 50ml might make the difference between a day full of frizz and a day full of margaritas and boating.
Last but not least, you'll want to pack plenty of sunscreen, especially if your skin hasn't seen much sun all winter longer.
