Can you feel that? Spring is in the air. That means that spring break will be here before you know it. For some, this means lounging on the couch surrounded by snacks — we’re not judging. But for others, spring break involves sipping Pina Coladas on a tropical island. If this is you, then it’s time to talk about spring break skincare.
Before you plan the perfect beach outfit, don’t forget to make your list of skincare essentials. Here we share a few items to pack in your carry-on. We also give you tips to keep your skin vibrant and hydrated all spring break long!
Spring Skincare Tip #1: SPF is Your Friend
If you’re gonna soak up the sun, it’s crucial to protect your skin from its harmful rays. Unprotected skin causes premature wrinkles, skin damage, and it could even increase your chances of developing skin cancer.
The good news is that you can still achieve a golden tan without putting yourself at risk. We recommend layering on sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Spring Skincare Tip #2: Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Taking a dip in the pool or ocean is oh-so-relaxing. But it could spell trouble for your skin. You see, the chlorine in swimming pools strip your skin’s protective layer. This leaves it feeling tight and itchy.
Not only that, but chlorine also makes you more prone to free radical damage — say hello to fine lines and breakouts.
What about ocean water? It’s loaded with minerals and vitamins, so it’s good for your skin, right? Not really. Although ocean water isn’t as bad as chlorine, it does have a drying effect on your skin — especially on sensitive skin.
To combat skin dryness before you swim, we recommend using a heavy, water-resistant moisturizer. Our Moisturizing Body Lotion is reef-safe and protects your skin’s moisture barrier.
What about after you take a dip? Wash off chlorine and saltwater with a gentle and hydrating wash. Our Liquid Body and Face Wash removes irritants like chlorine and deeply nourishes your skin.
Don’t forget about your hair. Chlorine and salt water can also wreak havoc on your delicate strands. That’s why it’s essential to pack a moisturizing shampoo.
Our Everyday Shampoo gently rinses away saltwater and chlorine and keeps your hair moisturized. Say goodbye to parched and tangled strands.
Spring Skincare Tip #3: Simplify Your Makeup Routine
We know you wanna look photo-ready for all of those vacay pics. But there’s nothing worse than having a face full of makeup melt off by the end of the day. Not only is this annoying, but a full face of makeup super sticky and uncomfortable.
Instead, keep your makeup routine light. Skip foundation and use a lightweight bb cream or tinted moisturizer. Want to an effortless beach glam look? Make your eyes pop with a sweep of metallic eye shadow and mascara.
Speaking of eyes, don’t forget to give them a little TLC during spring break. The skin around your eye is super delicate. Between spring allergies and makeup, they’re prone to inflammation — like dark circles and puffiness.
Pamper your eyes with a hydrating and nourishing eye cream. Our Q10 Lifting Eye Cream improves the appearance of the skin around your eyes and smoothes wrinkles.
