Top 10 Beauty Tips for Surviving a Vacation in the Sun

September 14, 2009

We recently returned from an incredible vacation in the US Virgin Islands where we had an awesome time.   We packed light because of the extra baggage charges, but I thought I’d share some of the things that I would not leave home without.    Here are my Top 10 Beauty Tips for surviving a vacation in the sun along with other things that really made our vacation a breeze.

1. Sunscreen.  OK, not a surprise, but sunscreen brands do vary.   And I’m allergic to several of the grocery store brands.   My Mary Kay Sunscreen is SPF 30 and it works great.  It’s waterproof!  And sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes.  It also provides UVA and UVB protection against the sun’s damaging rays.  This sunscreen absorbs quickly and it leaves yoMary Kay SPF 30 Sunscreenur skin feeling soft and moisturized.  I know guy lifeguards that wear Mary Kay Sunscreen so it’s not just for the ladies.   Be sure to bring several tubes of sunscreen with you so that everyone in the family has one readily available.  Vacations are expensive and no one wants to ruin theirs with a sunburn.   Pack your Mary Kay SPF30 Sunscreen to ensure you and your family have a wonderful vacation!

2. A Hat I’m not much of a hat person, but thinking of saving my face, I brought a sun visor with me.   I wore it everywhere.  It helped keep my hair under control and helped protect my face.  We were in a tourist shop on St. Thomas near where the cruise ships dock and a cruise ship passenger was desperately looking for such a hat. There were all sorts of other hats, but not the sun visor. So be sure to bring your favorite hat with you, especially if it travels well. A regular hat will also protect your hair and scalp better than a sun visor; I just preferred the visor. My husband wore his Tilley hat – the one I gave him for Christmas last year. I have to admit I had never heard of Tilley, but I am impressed with their hats and their service. Much like Mary Kay Customer Service – Tilley is well known for its great customer service.
