Summer Travel Essentials

Packing for a weekend getaway requires you to do more than simply pick out the best outfits for your given destination. You’ll also got to bring along a few makeup and skincare essentials that will keep you looking natural and fresh as you work on a healthy glow.

Your normal summer routine probably includes tinted moisturizer and a loose mineral foundation, so they are definitely must-have products you’ll want to pack when you’re planning a getaway. These items are perfect for the warmer months. A tinted moisturizer provides much-needed SPF along with some glowing color, so try theBalm’s Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 18 for the ideal base that will have your skin looking and feeling great.

A powder foundation offers light, silky coverage over your face, making it a great choice for hot days or times when you know you’ll be spending hours under the sun. Youngblood’s Natural Mineral Foundation glides on smoothly and can give your face a fresh, dewy look that screams summer. To make your tan look even better, try to apply darker shades that will enhance your bronze skin tone.

These products are ideal for getting your day started off right, but when the sun goes down you’ll want to clean your skin with a make-up remover. Of course, you can’t always bring large bottles of face wash along in your bag, but pre-moistened cleansing wipes are great options for travelers. Removers like Rilastil’s Daily Care Make-Up Removing Wipes are just as effective as washing your face but can be thrown into a travel bag for your convenience.

Of course, you would be remiss to travel without packing sunscreen. Protecting your whole body from harmful rays – not to mention a potential embarrassing sunburn – is essential. Products like G.M. Collin’s Sun High Protection Cream offer a comprehensive body sunscreen at varying levels of SPF.

While your skin is rightfully receiving the bulk of your attention, you shouldn’t forget your lips. Bringing along lip gloss is a must, and some of the best options for wear during your getaway would have SPF included to protect your lips from the sun’s harsh rays. Consider a product like Colorescience Pro’s Sunforgettable Lip Shine Gloss with SPF 35.

At the end of the day, you’ll want to replenish your skin with the nutrients and hydration it needs. Try an After-Sun Hydrator like Phytomer’s Sun Soother After-Sun Milk for a smooth lotion that will moisturize your skin after hours outdoors.

Do you know how to create a flawless faux tan?

Now that beach season has arrived, it's time to start putting in the effort to look your best as you show more skin. With your Exuviance skincare products and summer-inspired makeup, you can revamp your appearance in time for the changing seasons. 

If you're interested in adding color to your skin, you might want to consider using a spray tanner or tanning lotion. However, it's important to exercise patience and take precautionary measures into account before applying these products to your body. Failing to do so can result in orange skin or an uneven faux tan.

To ensure that you get the results you want, O! The Oprah Magazine recommends only going two shades darker than your natural skin tone. This will give you a flawless look that truly seems like you spent a little time under the sun. Elle magazine states that you can also make sure that your tan looks beautiful by exfoliating your skin beforehand, giving yourself a clean palette to start.

If you're in doubt about your tanning abilities, don't hesitate to contact a professional to give you the beautiful glow you desire.
