Heading on vacation or for a weekend away can be a lot of fun. Not only do you get to relax and have fun with friends, family, or your significant other, but you get to let your hair down and take some time out. And when we take time out, we all want to look and feel our best. And there’s nothing like a bit of summer beauty prep to get you there.
Whether you’re a big believer in the whole mani-pedi-spray tan combo come vacation time, you like to make sure that you’re feeling your best at the start of the summer, there are a few things that you might want to cover off before you head off. So, even before you start dreaming of summertime cocktails and breakfast on the beach, it’s time to look at the top beauty steps to take before you go.
- Book In For A Wax
The first thing you’re want to do to get yourself vacay ready is to think about the hair removal process. To make sure that your legs stay smoother for longer, you might want to switch your usual method of shaving for a more efficient wax. Then you won’t have to worry about shaving when you’re heading to the beach.
Next up, you’re going to want to keep on top of an exfoliate schedule. If you don’t always exfoliate, you might find this one a bit hard. But, keep those legs even smoother for longer, and to make sure that your skin keeps a tan a bit longer, you’re going to want to buff away those dead skin cells a few times a week.
- Get A Manicure
And then there’s the classic manicure to think about. If you already head to the salon on a weekly or fortnightly basis, you may already have your standing appointment in place. If not, you should book in. Gel or Shellac nails last so much longer than regular polish and are perfect for your vacation, especially when you opt for fun summer nail art.
- Pamper Your Feet
With your nails look pretty, you don’t want your feet to feel left out. So, next up, you’re going to want to go for a pedicure or do one yourself. Buff away the hard, dead skin, clip back those nails, paint them a pretty shade and make sure you add lots of moisturizer to keep them feeling good for the entire time you’re away.
- Get Highlights
When the months are warmer, there’s nothing like changing up your look a little to follow suit. So, if you want to get in the vacation spirit, why not think about adding in a few highlights when you’re next in the salon? There are so many subtle balayage types that you could just go for a little sun-kissed look to flatter your soon-to-be tanned skin, rather than a huge change.
- Sort Your Brows
Wouldn’t it be perfect if our brows just stayed exactly how they are when you walk out of the beauty salon? Well, because that can’t overly happen, you’re going to want to make sure you book a brow appointment for as close to your vacation date as possible. Then, you’ll be brow beautiful.
- Get Pearly Whites
Next, you’re going to want to be able to smile like you mean it while you’re away. And nothing makes a good smile feel great like those shining pearly whites. So, pick up a whitening charcoal toothpaste a few weeks before you go and get to work. Your teeth will be sparkling in no time.
- Give Yourself A Facial
You’re going to want to make sure that your skin looks and feels its best before you go away. Whether you’re planning on going fresh faced a lot of the time, or you just want a clear complexion to make you feel confident, give yourself a facial before you go to bring out your radiance.
- Top Up Your Tan
And who doesn’t want to hit the beach looking like they’ve been there for years already? If you want to have that gorgeous summer glow on your skin before you arrive, you’re going to want to invest in a good fake tan and get your routine right a few weeks or days before. Then, you’ll feel like you really fit in when you’re laying out by the pool.
- Try Eyelash Extensions
Finally, to make you feel as if you’re makeup ready as soon as you wake up, why not give eyelash extensions ago for your break away? Not only do they give you extra length and volume, but you also don’t have to apply mascara every morning either. It’s a win-win!
