Must-Have Travel Beauty Essentials to Pack for Summer Vacation
The sun is out and it’s time to have some fun. But while you’re packing your bags for vacation, make sure you don’t leave these great products behind. Here is a list of must-haves to take with you on your trip, wherever you go.
Packing liquids can be a hassle, especially if you’re traveling with only a carry-on. Shampoo bars are a great solution because they don’t take up much space. Or even better, try RÉDUIT’s Micellar Shampoo. Each Micellar Shampoo pod is only 5 mL in size, but it lasts for multiple uses. The size of a matchbox, it doesn’t take up any space. The pods also don’t get all slimy like soap bars do, and they won’t spill on your favorite clothes. Plus, they’re totally recyclable through the RÉDUIT Return & Renew program.
Odds are that your hair will be exposed to a lot of environmental stress – like saltwater, UV light, or chlorine – during your trip, so you’ll want to give your hair some love. Pick a good conditioner to keep your hair healthy and happy all through vacation. RÉDUIT has a great line of conditioning treatments that are super travel-friendly and easy-to-use. From volume boosting to strengthening treatments, you’ll find whatever your hair needs. The best part is that the same portable RÉDUIT One applicator that you can use for your Micellar Shampoo also works with any of RÉDUIT’s Hairpods™.
Both skin and hair need to be protected from sun exposure. Experts advise avoiding direct sunlight between 10 AM and 4 PM, when there is most risk from UV radiation. However, if you go out, always take steps to protect yourself. Wear a hat and take cover in the shade when you can, and always use SPF. Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours to make sure that you don’t sweat it off or wash it out in the pool. For your hair, try the Color Protect LED Hairpod™, which has been designed to protect your hair from environmental aggressors, and contains powerful antioxidants from green tea that work to eliminate free radicals. In addition, cyan LED light has anti-inflammatory properties that are extremely soothing to the scalp after sun exposure.
Summer heat means sweat, which means makeup that won’t stay in place. Though you might ditch your makeup routine because it’s just too much, there are products out there that pair well with the summer sun. Choose a lightweight foundation (ideally with SPF) or BB cream to even out blotchy and red skin without caking your face. And, of course, don’t forget the summer makeup staple, waterproof mascara, to avoid raccoon eyes and runny eye makeup.
Cleansing is an especially important step during the summer to help you break down residual SPF and oils and clean out your pores. Skin conditions, like acne, can get worse in the summertime, since heat, humidity, and sweat help to trap dead skin cells and grime in your pores, causing them to flare up. So pack your favourite cleanser and maybe start double cleansing to keep your skin healthy and happy. Don’t forget to bring a lightweight moisturizer to make sure your skin stays hydrated, especially after using cleansers that can strip the skin of its natural oils.
At the end of the day, the reality is that you might get sunburned. Take preventative measures by generously applying sunscreen, but also prepare for the worst by picking a good aftersun product. Aloe vera is the best soothing ingredient for your skin after a bad sunburn, so stock up on this good stuff before you head out to the beach so that you’ll be ready if you need it.
