With spring break just around the corner, that means plenty of time relaxing on the beach, hanging out with friends and having fun. If you’re lucky and traveling somewhere tropical and warm for spring break, you will need these 5 essential beauty items to help you get beach ready for your getaway.
#1 Skin Protection
Sunscreen is at the top of this list because it is one of the most important beauty items that you will need. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate SPF 70 is a great choice for a beach vacation as it has a lightweight texture, nice botanical smell and is not greasy.
#2 After Sun Lotion
Pack an after sun lotion to help protect your skin and replace lost moisture. A really amazing after sun lotion is Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian After Sun Lotion. This cream-colored lotion smells great and absorbs quickly. It features Kona coffee which helps to naturally soften skin. Green tea helps reduce skin damage caused by free radicals.
#3 Hair Protection
It is just as important to protect your hair and scalp from sun damage as the rest of your body. That is why sun protection is essential whenever you hit the beach. Our favorite is the Refreshing Sun Protection Spray from Shiseido. This spray is water-resistant and has an SPF of 16.
Before hitting the beach, make sure that you slough dead skin away with an exfoliator. We like the Kardashian Sun Kissed Body Buffer Exfoliator. It features crushed stone and walnut shell powder to exfoliate. Red tea helps soothe and smooth skin.
#5 Hair Remover
Shaving can lead to red bumps and marks on your skin, especially if it is sensitive. Nair Sensitive Skin Formula is perfect for the sensitive areas, as it quickly and gently removes hair. You will not have to worry about razor bumps, cuts or nicks. The green tea extracts help further soothe your skin.
