Weekend Getaway - Checklist for Your Beauty Bag

Posted by Audrey Kunin, MD There have been 0 comments

Weekend Getaway ChecklistFall is upon us, but you still have the chance to squeeze in a few weekend getaways before the cold weather hits. When you're going away for the weekend, you don't need to carry all of your makeup and beauty supplies. All you need are a handful of items to get you through the weekend. You'll still look amazing and you won't have to carry a separate suitcase just for beauty!

Moisturizer with SPF - First things first, make sure to pack a moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the sun and keep it hydrated. We suggest our Photodynamic Therapy 3-in-1 facial lotion with broad spectrum spf 30, a ground breaking lotion that uses patent-pending technology to capture UV rays and transform them into a wavelength of rejuvenating visible red light, combating the signs of aging. It's also moisturizing and works well as a base underneath your makeup.

Concealer and Powder - Vacations are the time to skip the foundation, if you can get away with it. If you need a little help, pack a small tube of concealer to cover under eye circles and red spots. To ensure your makeup looks great all day, pack a setting powder. A small compact is all you need and if it has a mirror it will serve double duty for touch-ups on the go.

Eye and Lip Essentials - Remember, you're only going away for the weekend! You don't need your entire collection of lipstick and eye shadow. Choose a two-color compact of eye shadow and a single mascara. Your eye shadow can double as eyeliner with a little water, so you don't even need to pack a liner. For lips, choose a moisturizing lipstick or gloss. Pack a color that's appropriate for the whole weekend and you'll only have to carry one tube.

Cleanser - Even on vacation, you still need to wash your face before you hit the sack. Pack a gentle but effective wash, like our Born To Be Mild medicated face & body cleanser. This ultra-mild, soap-free cleanser will whisk away the dirt, sweat and grime without stripping skin. It also doubles as a body wash, so you can forgo the harsh bar soaps found in many hotels.

Body Lotion - Lotion is essential for keeping your skin looking great while you're away. We suggest you apply our KP Duty dermatologist formulated AHA moisturizing therapy for dry skin over your entire body after a day in the sun and sand. Containing a patent-pending active moisturizing complex, this lotion will smooth and hydrate dry, rough skin, while reducing the visible redness associated with irritated skin.

Hair Essentials - You can't skip your hair when it comes to your travel beauty bag. Try to keep it simple with a headband or elastic band. A travel sized can of hair spray and a folding hairbrush help you look great without needing a ton of hair products. You'll only need more tools if your weekend getaway calls for a special occasion hairstyle.

Perfume - If you want to carry perfume with you, opt for perfumed powders, lotions or wipes. They travel better than glass bottles and let you control the amount of scent.

All of these products will fit in a small to medium sized beauty bag, perfect for small suitcases and duffle bags. After all, you'll only be gone a few days and the focus should be on enjoying your trip and not a lengthy beauty regime. Bon voyage!
