You’ve packed your poolside swimwear, your beach necessities, and your cocktail dresses but sweetie, aren’t you forgetting some beauty essentials? Please refrain from checking in your luggage until you have these 5 must haves for your exotic vacation this summer.

1. Supple Skin

Jet setting sucks the moisture out of your skin leaving it looking dry and dull. As soon as you hit your vacay location, hydrate your skin with a quick 15-minute mask. Just like your body needs water, your face needs some TLC as well. My personal favorite for a quick on-the-go pick me up is this Essence Mask from Sephora. Check into your hotel, slip on a robe, and paste it on. Your skin will instantly look refreshed and supple again.

2. Luscious Lips

Sunbathing is rejuvenating but too much of it can leave your lips dry and cracked. My favorite lip balm is Esos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm because unlike other brands, Eos leaves your lips with long lasting moisture. It’s 100% natural and packed with vitamin E, shea butter, and jojoba oil. Pucker up!

3. Shimmer Stick

If your vacation involves bikinis and flip flops, you shouldn’t be planning on wearing too much make up. All you need is “The Multiple” blush by Nars in the shade Orgasm. It’s a roll on stick that you can apply and rub onto your cheeks and brow bones for a light peachy shimmer that will glisten in the sun. Just make sure to apply post sunscreen and don’t forget to add mascara.

4. Sensationally Smooth

Hands down, my favourite lotion for my hands and body is Hempz. I keep a mini bottle in my purse at all times, not only for its absolutely amazing scent but because it instantly hydrates my skin. It’s 100% vegan and packed Vitamin A, C, and E giving you that baby soft skin you’re craving. Be sure to pack this in your overhead bag and use religiously. Hint: the “Original” is the best.

5. Posh Preparation
