What to Pack For Your Spring Break Beach Excursion

Mar 15 2014 - 6:00am

The season for Spring break is upon us, meaning it's time to shake off the Winter doldrums and step into some sun. A trip to the beach is just the excuse you need to rejuvenate your senses and downsize your entire beauty routine. From self-tanner to sunscreen, discover the TSA-approved product essentials to pack for your vacation (and shop our favorites) when you keep reading.

Makeup: The best thing about a vacation is that the majority of your activities will be so laid-back, you can leave most of your makeup kit at home. But for times when a little accentuating is needed, give your glowing, rested complexion a boost with a touch of mascara. Then, add color with a double-duty cheek and lip product.

Sunscreen: One sunscreen isn't necessarily enough when you're lounging beachside. Bring along formulas of at least SPF 30 for the face, body, and lips. Don't forget a soothing aloe vera product, either, just in case you miss a spot (not that you would).

Hair: There's never a better time than Spring break to try out trendy braided styles and fresh, fun ponytails. Take along a leave-in conditioner to protect your hair from the sun and surf, and for beautiful piece-y waves, try a sea-salt spray.

Body: While waxing and shaving are primarily done before a vacation, keep bikini bumps at bay with a product containing salicylic acid. You'll also want to carry-on a body scrub to prevent skin from flaking. Lastly, disguise any inadvertent tan lines with an easy-to-apply self-tanner.
