Must-Haves for Travel: Top 4 Vacation Beauty Products

With summer approaching (even with our current indoor state), it’s time to find inspiration and start planning our next vacations! We don’t have to stop daydreaming and planning about where we want to travel to next: whether that means hikes with gorgeous ocean views that make us want to stretch our legs, or galavanting through the French countryside with a good-looking stranger, there is plenty of summertime inspiration to keep our minds occupied during this sunny season. However, when the time comes that we can fulfill our travel dreams once more, we may be in too much of a hurry to remember to pack the essentials. Okay, not those essentials—we’re talking about what’s in your makeup bag. Before you jet-set, read up on YRH’s top recommendations for the vacation beauty products we just can’t live without.

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen

No matter where your travels take you, it’s important to carry sunscreen with you regardless of the weather expectations. Not only does sunscreen aid in anti-aging, but it also protects your skin from powerful UV rays (that exist even in cloudy weather!) that can cause lifelong damage. We love the Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen because it acts as a protective veil that powerfully becomes more effective when exposed to heat and water. Whether you’re sweating under the bright sun or wandering around a new city, this sunscreen will protect your skin with its silky, lightweight formula.

+Lux Unfiltered No. 32 Gradual Self-Tanning Cream

If you’re inspired to take a quick getaway and know you won’t have time to get that sun-kissed glow in time, self-tanner is here to give you that radiant tan post-haste. At YRH we love the No. 32 Gradual Self-Tanning Cream by +Lux Unfiltered. This vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free (woot!) product is a hydrating cream that gives a streak-free natural glow. Infused with hydrating ingredients like shea butter and passionfruit oil, this self-tanner will leave your skin soft and smelling like rose. Wave goodbye to your self-tanners that have that, well, self-tanner smell… and say hello to that summer glow!

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Being on vacation inevitably means spending time outside—while it’s lovely and necessary, being outdoors may lead to skin needing a little extra TLC. We can all benefit from well-hydrated skin, and the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask does all the work for you. This mask makes for dewy, plumped skin. Formulated with chestnut oil, Vitamin C, and Niacinamide, this product will gently and naturally exfoliate, brighten, and calm skin tone for radiant results. Use this mask overnight, or even as a moisturizer or makeup primer during the day. No matter what the use, your skin will be *loving* it!

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

When you’re on vacation, you should always be feeling a slight touch of glam… even if that means just throwing on a gloss. Lip-gloss can elevate a day- or a night-time look while keeping your lips plush and hydrated. We’re pretty much madly in love with Fenty Beauty (hello… who isn’t?!) and all of the Gloss Bombs they carry. Each shade flatters any skin tone; “Fenty Glow” is their most popular and universal shade. This gloss isn’t going to leave that sticky feeling on your lips—it will, instead, nourish and replenish them while giving your look that effortless plumped-up effect.

Staying indoors and #quarantining is temporary, but finding inspiration for travel and vacation are forever. You can never run out of ideas of the places you want to travel to, but consider throwing these in your suitcase before you go searching for adventure.
