A week-long tropical summertime getaway should be on the docket for all women everywhere in the world. Unfortunately, life sometimes only allows for a quick three day weekend jaunt. Make the most of your relaxation time, no matter how long it is, with these three travel beauty tips.
Travel Beauty Tip One: Feet First
Your feet tell the real story. I own three amazing hair salons, yet it takes an act of God for me to get a pedicure. I discovered a product called Footlogix several years ago and started stocking it in the salons. Footlogix is a novel foot treatment that will treat everything from dry skin to fungus in a nongreasy foam application. While I’ve always loved this product, I recently ran out of my Footlogix stash. Within a few weeks, the bottoms of my feet were as rough as sandpaper. I quickly realized that running out of my Footlogix was the reason why. The moral of the story is get a professional pedicure every month, while maintaining your pedicure with Footlogix at home. It’s that simple. Your feet will be ready to go anywhere your summer vacation takes them!
Travel Beauty Tip Two: Arrive With A Tan
Need a quick travel tan? We all know that there is no such thing as a healthy tan, right? I consider myself a connoisseur of Sunless Tanners. I’ve earned this designation by trial and error, so you can infer that I’ve made every possible mistake. If you are going for a quick tan, opt for Fake Bake’s Spray and apply with a mitt. Once your new tan dries, use Neutrogena’s Sesame Oil to hydrate and smooth. Now, you will also arrive at the beach looking like a local.
Travel Beauty Tip Three: Hydrate and Tint
I admit it. I feel naked and ugly without something on my lips. But not just any lip product will do. My tendency to have dry lips and my requirement for noticeable color often limits my options. I have found the magic bullet solution that meets my base needs and exceeds my expectations…especially during summer! Revlon Kiss tinted lip balm is hydrating, long wearing, shiny and also has an SPF of 20. Bam! I keep one of these very affordable lip balms in my beach, work and evening bags so that I always have it handy whether I’m on the job or getting away.
