Beauty Mark It Results: An "Un" Beauty Vacation

Beauty Mark It Results: An "Un" Beauty Vacation

Next month, I'm going on a much-needed vacation to beautiful Central America to experience the picturesque countries of Guatemala and Belize. It should go without saying that I'll pack slightly differently than how I did for last week's Fashion Week. I won't be bringing my Shady Lady, and I won't be applying any fancy face serums either. Blow-dryer, flat iron? Nope — they won't be making the trip.

Most of my days and nights will be spent exploring the history, natural beauty, and culture of each country, so I asked you to recommend products for a minimized beauty routine that's both simple and condensed. Congratulations to WhiplashGirlchild for recommending Philosophy Shelter Sunscreen For Face Tinted SPF 30 ($20). Here's what I like about this product extraordinaire:

  • Formulated to be universally flattering on most skin tones.
  • Protection spans both the UVA and UVB rays.
  • Comes in a 2-ounce tube, making security lines a little easier and travel bags lighter.
  • Has antiaging peptides.
  • Lightly hydrates without an unwanted greasy finish.

Whew — that is one amazing multitasker. Humid climate ahead? No sweat. To see what other great products were recommended for my upcoming trip, check out the widget below:

I agree pinkoliveblossom- I wouldn't travel with something like Benetint. Too many chances to break or spill and make a huge mess out of everything in your bag.

I would have to recommend not bringing Benetint on a trip. I love the product, but whenever I used to transport it, it would leak out, making a stained mess in my bag, and wasting the product. It doesn't seem like you would want to travel with this product.

I have to chime in with a vacation rec that has NEVER failed this pale-skinned, rosacea-ridden redhead -- Coppertone Sport SPF 30 (the lotion, not the spray). I worked one summer at a civic rose garden and if I applied this 30-45 minutes before I left and again during my lunch break I had not a freckle, not a hint of pink -- even sweating all day. I use DDF sunscreens for everyday, but Coppertone Sport is great for the beach or hiking (or gardening).
