Hey all beauty geeks!!! Hope you all are enjoying the onset of warm weather. Sadly, it is still winters here, though officially the spring season has commenced about a week back. 🙁 Tired of this cold and gloomy weather, we planned a trip to sunny Bahamas. Wohoo 🙂 However, I and sun do not get along. Grrrr!!! So, my skincare had to be top notch for the sunny encounter. And it did help me a lot during the entire vacation. That is why I decided to share with you all the entire ‘taam jhaam’ I took along for the trip so that you also can enjoy your sunny and beachy holidays without a care in the world 🙂
1. Face wash:
I know there is nothing new about carrying a face wash. But, not any facewash will do. I decided to pack my glycolic cleanser which provided a gentle exfoliation throughout the trip. Plus, the cleanser also leavesÂ my skin so smooth and soft to touch. Added bonus 🙂
Since I get tanned easily and a lot, I did not want to wait to get back home to start with the exfoliation. I carried my exfoliation brush along to sweep away tan everyday and also, let the skin absorb any after-sun skincare I would use.
Now if you don’t have any exfoliation brush, worry not. Carry a little amount of Baking Soda with you. Yup, you heard it right!!! Baking soda turns any face wash into a gentle scrub and is also good for any pimple emergency. And lastly, almost all hotels provide washcloths. Take a wet washcloth and remove your face wash in circular motions. This will exfoliate your face in absence of any scrub.
Obviously, we need to moisturize our skin all the time. However, sometimes moisturizers can feel heavy in hot weather. For this reason, I carried a serum for day and a light but rich cream for night. I have already reviewed the reviva night cream and you guys know I love it. 🙂 Do not forget your lip balms girls.
You all know I love my sunscreens. I currently use physical sunscreens, instead of chemical sunscreens. However, I carried both on this trip. I applied physical sunscreen on all days. I used chemical sunscreen when I had to swim or play in water, as physical sunscreens are ineffective in water 🙁 Next, I also packed my Physician Formula’s Pressed Powder with SPF 30. I used this to reapply sunscreen after every two hours.
5. After-sun care:
Please do not keep your after-sun skincare for when you reach back home. I carried cult-favorite Lacto Tan clear for daily use. I followed it up with Biotique Fruit Pack which has skin lightening properties. Also, carry Aloevera gel and Vitamin E capsules if you are prone to sun burn. Although, these are not essential to pack, it is always good to have them with you in an event of severe sun burn.
That completes my skincare gems for a sunny outing. Hope this helps in your preparation for your summer getaways. However, if you still get tanned, do not fret. ‘Wiseshe’ has lot of amazing DIYs to get rid of the tan 🙂
