11 Beauty Products you Need to Pack for a Sunny Vacation
Everybody is talking about it, bragging about it and counting the days before it. I’m talking about our summer vacation of course! With the excitation also comes the eternal question “What am I going to pack” and hence “Do I have everything I need?”. I’ve already covered the swimsuit area with 10 minimalist swimwear brands you need to know but I haven’t talked about the beauty products yet.
We want it all
Hair are a big issue for a lot of women in the summer. There is more humidity in the air so they become puffy and frizzy which is clearly a no go zone… Instead we want beachy waves, the ones that look natural but aren’t, we want a sunkissed skin without passing by the sunburn step. We want to wear no makeup without looking like we just got out of bed. We want that and so much more but that’s not possible, not without a little help. Hopefully we live in the 21st century and science has gone a long way. Some clever people created a beauty product, not to say a million, to treat each of these issues. Let’s see what we’ve got here.
