Beauty Travel Essentials for a Summer Escape

beauty-travel-essentials

Whether you’re headed to a luxurious Airbnb in Montauk for a weekend getaway or you’ve booked the cutest bed-and-breakfast for a week on Nantucket, you’re going to want to double-check your packing list and stock up on these beauty essentials. I’ve created the ultimate collection of beauty essentials for a summer escape, to make you feel like a million bucks no matter where you’re headed or what’s on your itinerary.

Long days in the sun require you to rotate in a few different products into your repertoire, which is why I’ve curated this list of products that are just as luxurious as they are effective. Without further ado, here are my beauty travel essentials for a summer escape…

luxurious summer perfume // sandy polish // cooling gel stick // scented shimmer powder // moisturizing body balm // hydrating gel moisturizer // lip balm // bronzing and illuminating stick // air-dry hair styler // texturizing spray // after-sun moisturizer // water gel moisturizer // bronzing serum

While you’re getting ready for your day, start with an SPF (organic, of course), a light facial moisturizer, and a few spritzes of a luxurious summery perfume. For hair and makeup, keep it simple: let your hair air-dry into natural waves with the help of some styling cream and use a two-in-one bronzer and illuminating stick that allows you to swipe and go for an instant glow. Have time for one extra step? Sweep on a little shimmer powder to enhance your bronzy skin — this one has a beachy scent that’ll make you fit right in with the seaside atmosphere.

Post-sun is all about replenishing and rehydrating. Cool off with a water-based gel stick that instantly hydrates and energizes your skin, and follow it up with a thicker moisturizer. Add a thin layer of bronzing serum and mascara for a finishing touch. Enhance your sea-salt soaked locks with a texturizing spray that will keep you looking bronzed and beachy. To keep your newly sun-kissed skin moisturized (and keep you from peeling!), coat your body in an after-sun lotion, and slick on a layer of thick lip balm to replenish them, too.

    Loving this list of products! A lot of them are actually on my wishlist right now! I have the regular bareMinerals bareSkin serum foundation, but the bronzing serum sounds magical!

    These products looks wonderful! I’m really intrigued by Tarte’s new Rainforest of the Sea line. I wish I had a summer escape planned, but I think all of my escapes are scheduled in fall and winter.
