Travel Unapologetically: 4 Vacay Must-Haves for Healthy Beautiful Skin

The date is quickly approaching and you’re rounding up those prized possessions to take on that trip you earned. You want to look flawless from head to toe, but with environmental woes being hazardous on the skin, you may want to switch up your routine to ensure it stays protected. While the beautiful scenery can be breathtaking, it can also aid in free radical damage, sun damage and dry itchy rashes. Don’t freak out! We like to think we have your back (neck, legs, and Brazilian *wink wink*) when it comes to waxing, but we also know a thing or two about maintaining healthy beautiful skin. Whether it’s a weekend with friends or baecation getaway, it’s time to stop letting your skin take a beating and travel unapologetically once and for all.


Side Note: We shouldn’t have to tell you this, but if we have to… sunscreen is a must!


Dry Flaky Skin?

Grumari Body Exfoliant can help with this. Due to the climate changes, long travels, and changes in diet, skin can become super dull and dehydrated. A body scrub not only gets you extremely soft and makes your clothes feel like silk against your skin; it stimulates the blood flow, flushes out toxins and improves the skin’s texture. You’ll visibly notice the difference in its clarity and moisture retention, thanks to the strengthening of your skin tissue. With papaya fruit, turmeric root extract, and gentle jojoba beads all in one bottle, you can be assured that this triple threat super scrub will fight against dryness and sun damage while you get some R & R.


Free Radicals…

You heard about them but may not exactly know what they are or what they do. To put it simply, they’re damaged molecules from pollution, tobacco smoke, dust, smog and more. It sounds kind of depressing but free radicals are all around you and can actually be your skin’s worst nightmare. While you’re having fun in the sun, your skin’s collagen is possibly being weakened, causing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, simply because of what’s in the air. After many studies, doctors concluded that antioxidants are one of the only ways to repair the skin. Our suggestion? Travel with a moisturizer loaded with antioxidants that promote healing, like our Copacabana Bath & Body Oil. It coats the skin in a natural cherry and grapeseed oil formula that locks in moisture 10 times faster on wet skin than any regular lotion on dry skin.


Needing to stop the stubble?

Okay so if you’re not waxing by now, we’re definitely side-eyeing you, but we’ll get back to that later. You may be in between waxes or shaved too early and now your stubbly hairs are on the loose; to control it in time for your trip, you’ll need a slow growth wash and lotion like Leme & Leblon. For now, let’s focus on Leme, the Slow Grow Wash, our soap-free body wash can be used daily to cleanse and delay the hair growth cycle. We’ve loaded it up with a unique blend of superfruits and vitamins that treats the skin everytime you wash; plus a ginseng root extract to balance out oil distribution for oily and sensitive skin types. If you’re looking for smooth then look no further, Leme is a perfect travel wash that smells like heaven and keeps you soft to the touch.


Light Traveler?

We understand it’s hard to fit your entire beauty cabinet in your suitcase, so having a product that doubles up on benefits is a win, much like our Leblon Slow Grow Lotion. Jetsetting with this gem is liking having a little skincare superpower in your luggage. It fights dryness, repairs free radical damage, and slows down the hair growth cycle with one application. Leblon works well in the sun; it’s lightweight and full of natural avocado oil, aloe vera leaf juice, jojoba seed oil and emollient moisturizers that leaves your skin feeling replenished but not greasy.

Embarrassing little bumps? Get rid of them with Ipanema Ingrown Hair Serum, it provides antibacterial support to soothe and softens the hair and skin; and it takes the extra step to even out skin pigmentation and dark marks.

Now that we’ve gotten your skin under control, you’re ready for smooth travels. Beijos.
