Bags are not packed yet, I am waiting for a special suitcase to start getting excited for my trip! yayayay!
But, I am starting to think about what beauty products best to take to a summer destination such as Mexico…
There will be lots of swimming in the pool and ocean and its quite hot, so there is a high need for thorough sun protection. After being exposed to the sun, your skin needs good hydration and moisture retention. Don’t forget about hair either, a leave in treatment is what your hair will need to stay hydrated in the sunny weather and exposure to salt and chlorine water. I’m also packing blotting paper for the day when it gets too hot and there’s sweat and oil showing up on your face. For the night I am packing my Nuxe Huile with shimmering particles to compliment the future tan and glow.
Here are the products I am getting ready to pack:
❥ Good sunscreen for the body
❥ Mask to help skin repair itself
This mask comes as a powder and has a mineral-rich formulation. Activated with a few drops of water, its an awesome product to take on holiday because powder is so much lighter than carting around a clay mask.
❥ Hydration for after sun
SugarBaby SunTanned Sweetie Skin Recovery Cream
This body butter cream smells like coconut cocktails and moisturises from head to toe.
Skinfood Aloe Moisture Ampule
We know that Aloe is good for your skin as it locks in moisture and is a recommended product to use after sun exposure.
❥ Sun Protection for the face
Perfect product to take on a beach holiday with high SPF and unique formulation for sensitive skin to prevent redness. Broad spectrum also protects from UVA and UVB rays.
Neutrogena Healthy Defence
This is my go to product for easy sun protection for the face. Acts like a moisturiser and a sunscreen and can be used as a primer.
La Roche-Posay BB Cream
Not a fan of wearing foundation any more, so this is my every day sun protection, cover and moisturiser. This French brand makes beautiful skincare and this BB cream is no exception. I am taking this baby with me everywhere, particularly somewhere hot for light feel but decent coverage.
❥ Sun protection make up for the days out and about
Innisfree Makeup Primer with SPF
This product helps soothe skin when you’ve been out in the sun all day and paired with a great mineral powder, is all you need to have for make up at a resort or out and about.
Antipodes Mineral Powder with SPF
Have been using this new make up essential from Antipodes. The mineral powder is so light but protects the skin quite well. I am thrilled that this product also has SPF. It’s unbelievable how hard it is to find makeup with SPF, particularly loose powder. The soft luminous particles help highlight your complexion. Thanks Antipodes for another gem of a product!
❥ Everyday essentials
For when its too hot and the old T-zone gets a bit of a workout, theres nothing easier than using these blotting tissues to give your skin a clean, matte feel again.
Little Bird Paw Paw Balm in Tangerine
I can’t get over how amazing these little balms are. The tangerine scent goes well with holiday mode and I’ll keep using this baby on the plane ride and while soaking up the sun.
Guerlain Meteorites Travel Touch Powder
This travel touch powder from Guerlain comes with me every time I travel. Small enough to fit into a cosmetics purse, great for freshening up your complexion and adds that spark to a tired looking face after a long haul flight or a big night out.
❥ For the night out/dinner:
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse with Shimmering particles
Just what the Guerlain Meteorites Touch Powder does for my face, this magical oil gives your whole body a glow. With a powder of gold particles and the beautiful fragrance, a drop of this oil is enough to make anyone feel like a goddess.
❥ For the hair:
Leave in treatment/ masque
Color WOW One Minute Transformation Styling Creme
When applied to dry hair, this treatment creme can style any type of damaged hair. Transforms damaged-looking, distressed hair into liquidy-smooth, silky hair with healthy-looking shine. Great for a quick fix to hydrate hair in no time.
