Good-For-You Spring Break Beauty Essentials
Between working long hours, wishing for sunnier skies, and of course, taking that daily dose of Nouráge, there’s a getaway we’ve all been anxiously awaiting. As we are counting the days to Spring Break vacation, we put together a checklist of must-have beauty items that will make your trip - wherever you go - that much better. Not only will these products make you look and feel amazing, but they are also made with natural, organic, and healthy ingredients. Don’t forget to pack a bottle of Nouráge to keep your hair, skin, nails, and lashes looking in tip-top vacay shape!
1. Self Tanner
If your skin hasn't seen the sun in a while, a self-tanner is the quick and safe option for achieving a bronzey glow. There are many amazing options on the market, including single-use towelettes, in-shower body washes, fast-drying lotions, and oil-infused mists. Our recommendation: Tarte’s Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner with Mitt. This best-selling solution is infused with vitamins C and E for a skin-nourishing, natural route when it comes to creating a beautiful tan. It also comes with a mitt that helps deliver streakless, buildable color. The vegan product is the perfect addition to your travel toiletry bag!
2. Tinted Moisturizer With SPF
No if’s, and’s, or but’s about it: sunscreen is a must, especially as we move towards the sunny summer months. Luckily, it’s easy to combine coverage and sunscreen in one product with a SPF tinted moisturizer. Our recommendation: Pur-Lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream with SPF 30. This product is not only paraben and fragrance free, but is also made with chamomile to soothe dry skin. Pick up this lightweight and natural looking balm for low-key days at the beach or while playing tourist.
Break out the strappy sandals and shove those winter boots to the back of the closet! Now that your toes are free it's time to pamper them with a pedicure. Our recommendation: Ella + Mila’s 6-Pack Samba Set. Falling under the “5-Free” umbrella, meaning this brand is clean and safe, this chic set is a must-have before some barefoot R&R.

4. Dry Shampoo
No matter where you go on spring break vacation this year, dry shampoo is the handy-dandy tool that will leave your hair looking fresh and clean for days on end. Instead of spending precious relaxation time styling your strands everyday, dry shampoo will do all the work for you in a matter of seconds! Our recommendation: Tarte Hair Goals Dry Shampoo. Made with vegan rice bran wax, this miracle in a can absorbs excess oil and adds volume effortlessly.
5. Hair Protectant
We need sun protection for our skin, but what about for our hair? Keep your tresses hydrated and protected from harsh rays with a hair sunscreen. Aim for a product that incorporates UV protection and water-resistant properties. Our recommendation: Aveda’s Sun Care Protective Hair Veil. This cruelty-free, lightweight mist minimizes damage and prevents dryness with just a few sprays. It’s also formulated with certified organic neroli, ylang ylang, citrus and other pure plant essences, so your hair will smell as divine as it feels. Toss it in your beach bag and you’re good to go!
6. Refreshing Face Mist
Spring Break means you might be hopping on an airplane, which we know can result in dry skin that needs a pick-me-up once you land. Skip the trip to the bathroom for a full refresh, and pull out a hydrating facial mist to revive “airplane skin”. Our recommendation: Herbivore’s Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist. Soothe and replenish in a flash with this organic spritzer and enjoy that much-deserved vacation the healthy way right when you step off the tarmac.
