Sometimes Beauty needs a break. We are not suggesting that you stop your skincare routine nor prying your favorite lippie from your hand. You, need a vacation, a weekend getaway, a staycation, an overnight at the Shore, or a classic week-long trip to the destination of your dreams. There’s plenty of solid research on the benefits of time off for your health, your productivity, and your focus. We want to talk to you about beauty on vacation.
Carry-on your beauty essentials
Whether you’re flying or road-tripping, come prepared. Travel can leave you feeling wilted. Tuck a small pick-me-up like AVB’s Toner Vitamin Spray into your handbag or other carry-on, (don’t forget security rules, it must be in a quart-sized plastic bag). One quick spritz will perk you and your skin right up; and the mini-sized bottle is a perfect travel companion. Also, keep your Vitamin-E lip smoother close at hand. You’ll ward off dry, chapped lips with a bit of color to boot.
Stick with your favorites
You’ve got an enviable stash of gorgeous FlowerColor eyeshadows, liners, blush and lippies. Who can blame you? You just don’t need to bring them all with you on vacation. As you’re picking and packing your outfits for your trip, decide on which look complements most of them and then tuck those make-up products in your bag. Hint: neutral, carefree looks like Tracy Anderon’s Earth look are vacation ready! Don’t forget, EB’s Refillable Paperback Duo Compact nicely holds your combination of two FlowerColor eyeshadows and a blush, which helps you minimize the amount of space you need in your bag.
At some point on your trip, whether you’re lounging on the beach, shopping in a fabulous outdoor market, kayaking on a lake or hiking the trail, you’re going to be in the sun. Your two-week travel kit has a mini Day Cream complete with our Ecco Shield, a blend of titanium dioxide and VitaminCells that help protect the skin from the effects of the environment. Our FlowerColor Natural Liquid Foundation has Ecco Shield too. Use both to boost your benefits. Don’t forget to pack your favorite, wide-brimmed hat and your sexiest pair of sunnies!
