8 Essentials to Get You Ready for Spring Break

If you’re anything like us, it doesn’t matter that this winter has been unseasonably mild and warm. You’re still ready for a spring break trip!

Whether your travels have you venturing to a tropical locale for some poolside relaxing or a meandering adventure in a new city, these products and services will help keep you looking and feeling your best … both in all of your vacation photos and when (unfortunately) you have to return to regular life!

First, and most importantly, protect your skin — and reduce signs of aging! — by applying lots of SPF before you step into the sunshine. We love Image skincare’s PREVENTION+ daily ultimate protection moisturizer, a sheer daily moisturizer that offers SPF 50 protection with its Digital Aging Defense formula. It also includes a hint of citrus essential oils for a pleasant scent, and at 3.2 ounces it’s TSA-compliant and safe to pack in your carry-on! 

Looking to go the tinted route so you don’t have to wear a full face of makeup on the beach? Give Image skincare’s PREVENTION+ daily tinted moisturizer a try, which has SPF 30 to keep your skin protected from the sun’s UV rays. And remember to care for your lips, too! Grab the Ormedic Sheer Pink Lip Enhancement Complex for instant hydration that makes lips look naturally full.

Enjoy your time beachside without worrying about your mascara running. Stop into your nearest Cole’s before you board the plane and treat yourself to a Lash Lift With Tint treatment. The lift gives your lashes a beautiful, natural curl, and the tint adds a pop of dark color to mimic the appearance of makeup. The results can last up to six weeks!

Volume is one trend we can get behind! If you’re looking to embrace big hair energy, look no further than Bumble and bumble’s DrySpun Texture Spray. This translucent spray adds 40% more volume (compared to untreated hair) in addition to lift and texture. The new Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray Light is perfect for fine to medium hair, and the original DrySpun Texture Spray is ideal for medium to thick hair.

Worried your roots will need a touch-up during your travels? Grab a can of Oribe’s Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray and keep it on hand. This formula comes in a variety of colors and instantly covers your hair’s roots and greys. Bonus: It’s also quick-drying and absorbs excess dirt and oil to refresh your locks while you’re away! 

We know you secretly want to channel your inner surfer girl. Good news! You can achieve the tousled, sun-kissed hair of your dreams — and leave the salty stiffness at home — with Oribe’s Apres Beach Save and Shine Spray. This moisturizing spray uses extracts and exotic oils for repair and texture, perfect for when you’re popping in and out of the waves.

The pampering doesn’t have to stop when you get home from your travels. Once the jet lag has cleared, stop in and treat your sun-kissed skin to one of our many facial services to speed up its recovery. Our Esthemax Hydrojelly Masks can be added on to any treatment to give your thirsty skin a boost of additional hydration.
