Summer holidays: The essentials of your toiletry bag

reading - words

The summer holidays are fast approaching and with them, this long-awaited moment appreciated by all… Packing your suitcase!

Today, to save space, we avoid taking all the beauty products available in our bathroom. It's decided, we travel light.

We know you can't live without your beauty products. But when it comes to packing, the most important thing is to be practical.

What we fear the most when we go on vacation is forgetting things. Packing your suitcase then becomes a real ordeal, both for clothes and for beauty products.

Don't worry, our team has looked into the subject and has come up with a list of essentials to take with you for the summer.

You can finally travel light without neglecting your summer beauty routine!

Let’s discover this list of 7 essential products right away.

1. Coconut oil

Summer is here and yes, the sun will dry up all the natural oils in your body. Therefore, to keep your skin soft and beautiful, coconut oil is one of the best remedies to try this summer.

Coconut oil, when used naturally, helps skin look fresh and feel soft. The properties present in coconut oil are best for the skin as they tend to create magic.

Using coconut oil right after your bath in the summer is one of the best ways to make your skin soft.

2. Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen is one of the best – and easiest – ways to protect the look and health of your skin at any age. Used regularly, sunscreen helps prevent possible sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging of your skin.

Protecting your skin against the sun is always a very important step in your beauty routine, even when it's not hot and sunny outside.

But here, as it's summer vacation and when it's hot and sunny outside, you absolutely have to protect your skin from the sun with a cream with a more or less high SPF index.

Also, while traveling, you spend a lot of time outdoors seeing sites and doing various activities, which exposes you to even more intense sun than usual.

You will understand, there is no negotiation here. Whether you're going to the beach or the jungle, you need to pack a good sunscreen.

Be aware, however, that applying sunscreen once is helpful, but it does not guarantee prolonged protection. It is therefore important that you apply sunscreen evenly and often.

For reference, most water-resistant sunscreens last around 60 minutes. If you plan to be exposed to the sun for more than 60 minutes, you should apply a second coat and reapply accordingly.

3. A day cream

Hydrate your body! Even if it is difficult to apply a body milk in the heat, it is an essential gesture. Plus, your tan will last longer

A good option is to replace your moisturizer with after-sun, which, by the way, soothes skin from the sun and is generally lighter. And the smell is particularly delicious!

Hydration is, in our humble opinion, one of the two essential steps of daily skin care that every human being should follow, in addition to cleansing.

The moisturizer hydrates your cells, promotes healthy skin renewal and creates a barrier on your skin to protect it from external aggressors (and UV rays, if it contains an SPF rating).

4. A scrub

Heat can cause various skin problems and make your skin look tired and lifeless if you don't make the effort to pamper it regularly. It is therefore not enough to cleanse your skin and use refreshing shower gels.

Your summer skincare routine should include an effective body scrub that can help exfoliate your skin to remove toxins and excess oil from deep within pores, and keep your skin fresh.

The benefit of body scrub is that it removes dead skin cells. It allows your skin to better absorb moisturizers.

By removing the buildup of dead cells, any moisturizer applied afterward penetrates deeper into the skin.

Finally, using a body scrub regularly during the summer will leave your skin looking smoother and more even.

This is because when dry skin is not removed, it becomes rough to the touch and has a dull, cracked texture and appearance. Not great for showing off your body on the beach!

5. A razor

In fact, shaving, like exfoliating, can help improve your tan by removing dead skin cells that block the healthy skin underneath.

When it comes to choosing your razor, the more blades the better. With multiple blades, the cutting efficiency can be greatly improved.

In fact, irritation and ingrown hairs can all be caused by a poor quality or dull razor, as well as poor shaving habits, such as pressing too hard or going over the same area multiple times. And let's be clear, that's all you want to avoid on your vacation in the sun.

Heat dehydration impacts your health and your body, including your skin. So keep your skin healthy and soft by shaving properly. Then use a moisturizer when you're done.

Remember to let your skin recover after shaving before going out in the sun, applying sunscreen or tanning lotion, or going to the swimming pool, to avoid possible irritation.

6. Mascara

There's not much to say here except: get a cosmetic that you love and can trust!

Choose a mascara that is waterproof and will last from morning to night!

7. Extra products

Moisturize your hair well

You can find shampoo at the hotel or buy one at any supermarket, but what about conditioner? We suggest you take some with you or use a cream for this purpose.

If you don't feel like carrying around with a heavy suitcase, you can also use your coconut oil as a conditioner and, at the same time, repair the damage caused by the sun, salt or chlorine.

Remember to perfume yourself

Choose citrus scents! But what is it ? These are perfumes that are very invigorating, sparkling and sunny. They are cool and light and you can use them for any occasion.

Either way, ask your local perfumery for a 2-3ml sample of your favorite perfume to wear only at night.

Perfume in direct sunlight is not recommended, as it can lead to redness, sunburn and stinging within minutes.

Don't forget your toilet bag!

Vanity Toiletry Bag

It's an art to pack well. Especially when it comes to short vacations or if you decide to travel light.

In this small space of your backpack or suitcase, you need to find room for swimsuits, dresses, towels, shoes, your accessories and, of course, your toiletry bag.

On top of that, it can be difficult to decide which model to take home and which not.

Although this article focuses on the inside of your toiletry bag, and the essential products for a successful holiday in the sun, the toiletry bag can also be one of the most important things you pack.

As advice does not come alone, we provide you with a collection of toiletry bags to help you in your choice.

Remember, packing your beauty products in a toiletry bag will help you stay organized, as well as limit spills and potential leaks to one space in your bag or suitcase.
