Best Beauty Products For Spring

We are emerging from an exceptionally wacky winter. The weather has been so unpredictable. We’ve had exceedingly cold weeks with snow storms in, what is officially, Spring sprinkled with the odd 60 degree day here and there. These conditions not only drive us out of our minds but also leave our skin in a tizzy, stripping the hydrolipidic film from the surface. (This is a thin barrier that sits on top of the skin, ensuring suppleness and protection from bacteria.) This can leave skin sensitive, dry, dull, reactive and even a little spotty. Here are some of the Travel Beauty team’s favorite transitioning into Spring beauty boosters.

Put your best face forward

If your skin is feeling out of sorts, it probably needs a little extra tender loving care. Sapelo Skin Care Rejuvenating Cream is an all-natural, botanical moisturizer containing gardenia plant stem cells and a high concentration of colloidal platinum peptides (which have undergone phase III clinical testing – the gold standard of trials). Sapelo Skincare Rejuvenating CreamThese ingredients hydrate, reduce wrinkles and boost collagen production. In short, this light, airy, anti-aging moisturizer delivers on its promise. It truly turns back the hands of time — at least as far as your skin is concerned.

Body booster

Just because temperatures are cold and crisp doesn’t mean you should ignore your body. Keep your eyes on the prize. The time you invest today will pay off in spades come swimsuit season. Now is the optimal time to indulge in a skin tightening, cellulite fighting body lotion, especially one that activates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in deep skin structures. Typically anti-aging ingredient can only be found in facial skin care – not in body products. EVENSWISS Refining Body Complex is a body wrap in a jar. It leverages a patented peptide complex, Dermatopoietin®, that increases skin’s elasticity and firmness, smooths the appearance of cellulite and helps slim down thighs and arms. This body-tightening booster has undergone clinical trials, is dermatologically proven and backed by 30 years of scientific research. In other words, it works!

The master multi-tasking mask

Seasonal transition periods are also a great time to treat yourself to a weekly mask. Deborah Mitchell, British aesthetician to stars and royalty alike (we’re talking Camilla Parker Bowles, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry and the list goes on….) has formulated Heaven Skincare’s world-renowned Bee Venom Mask as a natural alternative to Botox injections. The active ingredient, ABEETOXIN™ (or “Beetox”), is based on bioactive bee venom compounds, with venom derived from inducing bees to sting (with no harm to the bee, of course). Skin is naturally stimulated to produce collagen and elastin as a defense. This reaction works to control the facial muscles for immediate lifting, tightening and firming. It also contains Manuka Honey, renowned for its soothing and healing properties.

Heaven Skincare Silver Bee Venom MasksIt can be used as a moisturizer for those that live in humid climates or have oily or combination skin, applied over moisturizer and left on all day for those with dry and/or mature skin, or as a 15 minute mask. Heaven Skincare Silver Bee Venom Mask can also be applied over eye cream for a little extra added wrinkle ironing action.

Eye opener

Whether you are stressed, tired, traveling or just had too much for dinner last night, banish under eye imperfections with Institut Esthederm Lift & Repair Eye Contour Lift Patches. This treatment contains caffeine, sodium hyaluronate (the same active ingredient found in injectables) and algae extract to wake up your eyes. Think of it as a mini microcurrent facial in a patch. You won’t believe the difference ten minutes makes. Under eye masks are the ally of choice for many celebrities during award season, and more importantly, for me!

Your Guide To Travel Friendly Beauty Products

If you’re anything like me, traveling can have a way of forcing you into packing just the bare-bone beauty essentials needed for your trip. But what to choose? Your regular size beauty weapons or the mini versions of your must-have products?

Let’s talk logistics

Take hair products for example – a 1 oz mini bottle of shampoo isn’t going to last you two weeks in Paris, now is it? What’s a girl to do? A mini toothpaste, however, can go the distance.

When you’re checking luggage, it’s easy – just throw everything in and call it a day. But when you’re confined to a carry-on, things can get tricky. Even though we think we are familiar with TSA Guidelines we still get in trouble at security – Ever had all your favourite products thrown into the garbage right in front of you? (Is there anything more tragic than trying to make your 4:30am flight and having your YSL perfume chucked out before your very eyes?)

There is the option, at many airports, to store your products for, a fee, until you get back from vacationing in Bermuda, but if you don’t want to part with your essentials, here’s what you need to know.

Opt for sprays vs. liquids

I’d much rather have liquid than dry shampoo, but when you’ve only got a carry-on, what can you do? There are benefits to skipping the suds anyways, like creating volume and reducing the heat you use on your hair (hello, no more blow dryers). Yes, the dry version does the trick but if you’re really in need of a liquid shampoo the world famous, Philip Kingsley makes great travel size Jet Sets that contain a fantastic shampoo, conditioner and Philip’s award winning hair mask, Elasticizer, that are substantial enough to get you through at least 10 days.

Pack travel size makeup

Even though most makeup is travel friendly there are some brands that create everything in perfectly travel-size packages. There’s a brand that I know, love, and use called Stowaway, based in New York City, that makes all of their beauty products in exactly the right sizes. You’ll never have to worry about your foundation being over the limit again! Another plus to having your beauty products in smaller packages is that you’re able to actually finish a tube of lipstick before it expires. How often does that happen?

Bring a reusable water bottle

This isn’t something that comes to mind straight away when thinking of essential beauty products but water is an incredibly important part of your beauty routine – especially in flight. Water helps you stay hydrated and in return, makes you look and feel more beautiful – win, win! But don’t bring your own water because there are plenty of hydration stations around the airport to fill up on-the-fly.

Stash away a couple products for the plane

Beautifying yourself shouldn’t start when you land. It actually begins during the flight. With all that recycled air and drying temperatures, it’s essential to begin taking care of your skin while your seatbelt is still fastened. Apply a light face mask halfway through your flight. Heaven Skincare Silver Bee Venom Mask is my go to. You can apply it directly over your moisturizer and leave it on, it seeps right in with a dose of hydration. Don’t worry about getting strange glances from fellow passengers when applying your mask; they’re just envious of your well-packed travel kit. It is also essential to keep your lips moisturized. I’m partial to B. Kamins Lip Balm SPF 20. It can be applied right over lipstick or gloss and contains UV protection in case you are sitting in a window seat. You can actually get burned through the windows of an airplane.

Remember that less is more

All you super light packets out there, this beauty product is for you. Introducing the one and only water spritz you’ll need to pack in your carry-on: Vine Minus Ion Care Water. This high-tech water, from Japan, does it all – seriously. It can be used for a quick refreshing spritz while in flight and on the go, but it’s also a hair volumizer & skin moisturizer, a makeup remover and setter and can substitute for toothpaste in a jam. So while this product is only one small bottle, it can take the place of so many others.

If you’re really missing your full-sized beauty routine and need to work in an extra beauty boost, check out the many airport beauty services you can find in most airports.

Enjoy flying in style!
