Spring Break Beauty Essentials Shopping List

All The Beauty Products You Need for Spring Break

Spring Break presents the unique beauty challenge of wanting to look effortlessly gorgeous with as few products as possible. Firstly, travel means your space is limited. Secondly, nobody wants a full face of heavy makeup in the sun—it’s a nightmare for your pores and a little too “try-hard” for a relaxing vacation.  A natural look with ample sun protection is the way to go here! Fewer products means fewer fights for space in your handy dandy 1-quart Ziploc baggy if you’re flying. Products that do double duty are nice to have here—a leave-in conditioner with sun protection for example, or a tinted moisturizer with 30+ SPF and broad UV protection. 

Keep your skin clean and well moisturized with a broad-spectrum SPF lotion—30 or higher to save yourself from early aging and skin cancer risk. Don’t forget to reapply as directed! Drinking plenty of water (especially during flights and in hot weather) is one of the best beauty tips we can give you (after sunscreen of course!). Finally, give your stressed skin a treat at the end of the day with a luxurious after-sun mask to replenish moisture.
