Summer is officially here. As you welcome the sunshine, blue skies and warm breezes, you want to take advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts. There’s no better time than now to start planning your next weekend getaway. Make sure to pack your beach umbrellas, camping gear and hiking shoes - and leave the skin care part to us. Whether you’re heading to the beach, into the wilderness or jet-setting to your favorite city this summer - here’s our pick of travel-friendly products to take with you:
The smell of sea air, the sand between your toes, and the sun on your face - what’s not to love about the beach? You may love being seaside but there’s a good chance you’re not fond of the drying and damaging effects that the sun, sand and saltwater can have on your complexion.
Travel Must-Have: For the beachgoers out there, we recommend bringing along our Stone Crop Gel Wash, Stone Crop Body Lotion, Linden Calendula Treatment and our Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 40. These products defend your skin against the harsh dryness of the elements while protecting your complexion against the sun’s harmful rays.
The Nature Getaway
We get it. When you set out into the wilderness on a camping or hiking adventure - the less in your backpack, the better. Even though nature lovers want to keep things minimalist, there are always exceptions to the rule, especially when it comes to sun protection. We can’t stress enough how important it is to protect yourself against the sun’s harmful rays. Trust us - a bad sunburn is even more uncomfortable than a 20lb backpack.
Travel Must-Have: For all over body protection, we recommend our Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30. This SPF is ideal for outdoor activities like swimming and high-performance sports because it consists of a non-greasy formula that is water-resistant up to 40 minutes.
The Weekend Jet-Set
Remember that unbelievable flight deal you found online a few months back? Well, summer is the perfect time to cash it in. Whether your flight is one hour or four - if your weekend destination involves air time, you’ll definitely experience dryness and dehydration in your skin.
Travel Must-Have: To keep your complexion looking fresh and moisturized, we recommend one of our hydrating serums. Éminence serums contain super-concentrated nutrients that deliver intense moisture and healing vitamins and herbs to the skin. The beautiful Jessica Biel swears by our Eight Greens Youth serum when she travels:
“Constant flying dries out my skin, so I make sure I moisturize everything. I always have Éminence Eight Greens Youth Serum in my carry on.” - Jessica Biel
And, to keep breakouts at bay while you're on the move, don't forget your Clear Skin Targeted Treatment. This slim tube releases a drop of potent remedy to fix that problem area on the spot, sometimes within hours.
