A relaxing holiday wasn’t on the cards for so many of us for a while, given the pandemic situation. But since things are slowly but steadily getting back to normal and with lockdown restrictions eased, we guess it’s the right time to start planning a holiday. While an international trip might not be possible at the moment, it doesn’t mean you cannot travel within the country. Since we are about to approach summer, there can be no better place to plan a holiday than a beach destination where you can just sit, relax, sunbathe, and admire the beautiful view.
That said, a beach holiday is as fun as it can be relaxing. But this holiday can also take a toll on your skin and hair if not cared for the right way. Hence we took it upon us to help you pack for your beach vacation. If you don’t want your beauty game to be compromised in any way, then make sure to pack the following beauty essentials in order to look your best on a beach holiday.
Sunscreen is the most important thing to carry when going on a beach vacation. You definitely cannot miss out on this product. Since you will be spending a lot of time under the sun, it’s crucial to keep your skin protected, hence the need for sunscreen. Sunscreen won’t only help prevent tanning but will also keep your skin protected against dark spots, pigmentation, and sunburn. Sun rays can be extremely harmful to the skin; therefore, you should make sure to lather on a generous amount of sunscreen over your skin for a superior level of sun protection. Also, keep reapplying sunscreen every couple of hours to ensure maximum sun protection.
After sun gel
No matter how many times you have applied sunscreen on your skin, it will still feel a bit red and irritated due to sun exposure. The only way to avoid redness and irritation is by using an after-sun cream or gel post sunbathing. These creams or gels are formulated with cooling and hydrating ingredients that help make your skin feel cool and hydrated.
The sand particles and high humidity on the beach tend to leave your skin oily and dirty, meaning that you just cannot skip cleansing your skin. Since constant sun exposure often leaves your skin a bit irritated, using a harsh cleanser to cleanse your skin can irritate it further. Instead of using your regular cleanser, you should use micellar water to cleanse your skin. It not only feels gentle on the skin but also removes all the dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities thoroughly from your skin. Additionally, micellar water doesn’t strip your skin of its natural moisture, unlike regular cleansers.
Lip and cheek tint
Wearing a full face of makeup on a beach vacation feels a bit too much, you should try keeping your makeup routine as simple and clean as possible. Instead of carrying different makeup products, you should pack the ones that can multi-task such as a lip and cheek tint. This product will help give a flush of color to your face, thereby making you look bomb in your pictures.
Apart from taking care of your skin, you also need to look after your hair as it is also affected by factors like sun, humidity, and salty water on a similar level as your skin. One of the best ways to prevent your hair from getting damaged or frizzy is by using a hair serum. You should bring a bottle of hair serum on your beach vacation; it will come to your easy rescue. Aside from protecting your hair against humidity and frizz, it will also make your hair feel softer and healthier.
