Packing List: Summer Travel

It’s summer! Accordingly, I’m packing my bags for a summer of travel. I’m traveling between Nantucket, Los Angeles, Denmark, Montauk & Boston, not a bad summer line up; however, with each destination & the change in climate it wreaks havoc on my hair & skin. Above & beyond the essentials these are the 10 products that are coming on every trip with me.

I always get a blow out before a trip; it alleviates the anxiety of having to do it myself! Usually by day 3 my hair looks oily and I should wash it…instead I use the Blow Faux Dry Shampoo to remove the excess oil from my hair & give it volume. When it is finally time to wash my hair I go for the beach/wavy look. It is super easy to achieve & doesn’t require a blow dryer (one less thing to pack). I spray the Blow Beach Blow Texturizing Mist on my hair when it is damp, run my fingers thru it and I’m good to go.

Supergoop! Save Face Serum SPF 30+ Amazing product!  I add to my face & body lotion in the morning when getting ready.  It keeps my skin hydrated and protected from the sun without irritation and in case I forgot to apply sunscreen I know I’m covered.

Jonathan Weightless Smooth No-Frizz Hydrating Balm-Great for smoothing out even the frizziest summer hair without weighing it down. My hair gets super frizzy!

Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes-I throw these in my bag for the beach, working out or if I’m just walking around in humid climates. I use them to remove makeup on the nights I’m feeling super lazy.

I have started to wear a hat when I’m outside to avoid tanning my face. Obviously, I want a sun kissed complexion in the summer months so I cheat & use the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads.  Oh & they exfoliate as they tan!

I carry The Laundress Delicate Wash so I can wash my bathing suit & cover up every night. During the hot months my clothes seem to wrinkle easier when I pack so I also carry The Laundress Crease Release. Works like a charm.

Anthony for Men After Sun Cooling Cream-nothing feels better than this lotion after a long day in the sun. It doubles as my body lotion.

Antibacterial Towelettes…because you just never know when you’ll need them and you’ll be glad you have them when you do need them! I like the Herban Essentials Lemon scent for summer, the citrus is refreshing.

Safe travels,

Alexi

Men’s Travel Tips by Anthony for Men

Men’s Travel Tips

It’s the same old routine, you have an important meeting on the other side of the country- or even the world, and you’re dreading the journey.  Whether it’s driving countless miles on the open road with only the passing shrubbery to keep you company or sitting in a cramped airplane where the kid behind you is kicking your seat and you’re trying to keep warm under the airlines thin blankets because the AC is blasting.

However, there are ways to lessen your discomfort, and also make sure you look like a million bucks regardless of the fact that you just had to deal with 15 straight hours of a bratty toddler screaming his head off. 

One major annoyance about travel is the air your face, and most importantly your lips need to deal with.  Airplane air is often cold and very dry, and licking them continuously is just going to make them even more parched.  Lucky for you, beeswax, carnauba, and other plant waxes come together in the Citrus Lip Balm.  Your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your face, and they can often become unsightly and annoyingly sensitive if you don’t take proper care of them.  Keep chapped lips at bay with the Citrus Lip Balm and make travel that much more comfortable for you.

Besides your lips, your skin itself needs some TLC.  Stress, air quality, lack of sleep, as well as other factors often diminish how your skin looks and feel, which gives you that haggard expression everyone seems to have after a long trip.  However, this unattractive look is not inevitable. Combat it by using our Facial Scrub.  It contains spherical beads and fine Bora Bora sand to buff away dead skin, making your skin look brighter and reducing ingrown hairs (something you definitely don’t want to deal with while traveling).  It also has a invigorating citrus scent which should help get you out of the traveling doldrums.

Shaving right before your arrival is crucial, as stubble can sometimes make you look sloppy.  Use the Facial Scrub to also get the closest shave possible.  It gets rid of all the dead skin around beard hairs and helps them lift up so they’re easier to shave.

After exfoliating, use the Shave Cream to get the smoothest shave you never thought possible while traveling.   Eucalyptus and natural moisture oils soften your hair, making it more manageable leading to a closer shave.  No Benzocaine means that you can’t over shave, and aloe vera gel helps soothe.  A good shave makes not only everyone else think that you are well rested and had amazing travels, it also gives yourself a much needed boost.  You know you look good, and that confidence will come off in your demeanor.

A huge problem that many face while traveling is the amount of stuff that one can carry.  You want to stuff your bag with everything you need, but want to keep it light enough that you won’t need to break a sweat every time you try and lift your bag.  Fortunately, all the products in this post as well as some other travel favorites (including the Glycolic Facial Cleanser, the Everyday Shampoo, as well as the others) come packaged in a TSA approved size with a clear pouch, so you can just grab it and go!  Don’t worry about what you can and can’t bring regarding skin care products- the kit has anything you could ever want for your skincare needs.

So next time you’re about to travel, make sure to follow these tips to make the journey more comfortable for you and your skin!
