With summer around and the world opening up after COVID-19 restrictions,  you would be itching for an escapade to beat the heat. However, warm weather can play havoc on your skin and ruin your vacation. Does that mean you cancel your travel plans? Absolutely not! 

All you need to do is to pack the following beauty essentials so that you can enjoy your holidays without an iota of worry:

  1. Sunscreen Lotion

A good-quality sunscreen lotion is a must on your summer travel list. It protects you against the sun’s harmful UV rays, moisturizes your skin, and prevents sunburn and other skin-related ailments. 

Choose your sunscreen based on these guidelines by the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Water-resistant
  • Broad-spectrum coverage (protection against UVA and UVB rays of the sun)
  1. Wet Wipes

Wet wipes are a lifesaver when you want a hassle-free way to cleanse your skin of dirt and grime. They are gentle and refreshing for your skin. Swipe them on your face and neck and you will feel brand new within moments! 

Try to carry wet wipes that are non-toxic, organic, or hypoallergenic to suit your skin type.

  1. Sunglasses

Whether you are heading to the beach, mountains, or any other destination, sunglasses are a classic fashion accessory. Apart from upgrading your style quotient, they provide adequate UV protection. They also prevent your eyes from irritation and redness which are commonly associated with health issues during the summer season.

It is recommended to use sunglasses that have a wider lens for maximum eye coverage. 

  1. Sweat-Proof Makeup

If you are someone who loves to wear makeup even while on a holiday, then a sweat-proof makeup kit is just what you need. Sweat-proof makeup products are usually more water-based and are designed to prevent sweating and oil formation on the face. They will make you feel light and fresh all the time without any fear of melting.

  1. Makeup Remover

Following a cleansing regime is as important as holidaying. Remove your makeup at the end of the day to wash away impurities from your face. Carry a cleanser or a makeup remover along with cotton pads. Makeup remover cleansing towelettes are also easily available in the market today and you may keep them handy with you.

  1. Aroma and Essential Oils

Nothing works better than the fragrant aroma of essential oils when you want to ease out stress and anxiety after the long hours of exploration around the city or countryside.

Before leaving your home for the holiday, pour a few drops of aroma oil into a small potpourri bag and carry it with you. You can keep this potpourri in your purse or in the hotel room to calm your mind and soothe your soul.

Essential oils are great for a rejuvenating bath time experience or when you crave DIY aromatherapy. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the bathtub or bucket filled with water. You can even sprinkle the drops on the outer edge of the showerhead. 

You can buy premium-quality, handcrafted aromas and essential oils in varied fragrances to match your every holiday mood from Hem Fragrances. These oils are available in 10 ml bottles which are handy and travel-friendly.

So here's to a Happy Vacation!
