If you’re hitting the sun and sand this spring break, don’t forget to pack your tote with a few makeup essentials that will protect your skin and hair from the sun and keep you looking fresh even after a long swim in the ocean. From sunscreen-infused hair conditioner to mineral eye makeup, here are some of the essential beauty products you need when you’re having some fun in the sun over spring break:
Protect Skin from UV Damage with Sunscreen-Infused Moisturizer
Liberally apply a lightweight moisturizer with SPF 30 or more to reduce the risk of skin damage and skin cancer. You’ll need to apply moisturizer on your face, neck and décolleté at least two to three times per day, and immediately after you return from your dip in the pool or ocean.
Use a Mineral Makeup Foundation
Avoid wearing liquid or cream-based foundation that will cake up or look chalky under the hot sun. Your best bet for those sunny days in the heat is a lightweight mineral makeup that can be secured in place with a primer or a makeup setting spray. While this type of makeup will disappear after your swim session, it’s very easy to apply and offers plenty of coverage. Turn to an SPF-infused mineral makeup line such as gloMinerals so you can also protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
These rays damage not only you hair by weakening the roots but also the entire body so keep away from them by exercising caution from time to time otherwise you will have no choice but to look for laser hair removal prices that come under your budget.
Enhance Lashes with Waterproof Mascara
While the rest of your makeup will likely disappear after a few hours of sweating under the sun or taking a dip in the water, the right type of waterproof mascara will keep your peepers looking beautiful all day long. Waterproof mascaras that have received some of the highest ratings and positive reviews include the Dior DiorShow Black Out Waterproof Mascara, Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara, and the Max Factor 2000 Calorie Aqua Lash.
Enhance Lids with a Waterproof Eyeshadow
Color up those lids without worrying about smudging or running makeup by applying a waterproof eyehsadow. Make Up For Ever makes a line of pearly waterproof eyeshadow pencils in several colors including metallic white, pearly pink and shimmering taupe. Apply as needed throughout the day on your spring break vacation.
Condition Lips with SPF-Infused Lip Color
Skip the sticky glosses and liquid liners in favor of an SPF-infused lip conditioner that will soothe and protect lips from the heat and also reduce the risk of burning from the sun’s rays. M.A.C.’s Tinted Lip Conditioner is a great match for spring break season, and you can choose from an array of colors to add a hint of color to your look.
Keep Your Cool with a Wide-Brimmed Hat
Wear a stylish wide-brimmed straw hat to protect your neck and shoulders from excessive sun exposure. You’ll need to sport the hat when you’re heading out for a walk on the boardwalk or just sunning on the sand. These are an easily-packable accessory for travel, so you can just stow it in your beach tote along with your makeup and skincare kit.
