Dates – check. Flight and hotel bookings – check. Itinerary – check. Once all your travel arrangements are in place, the next important thing to focus on is packing for your trip. While over-packing definitely does not resonate well with a carefree and fun getaway, leaving out the essentials can be quite a dampener too. Before you take out those bags, go over this list of essentials for a vacation, so that you won’t have to deal with the disappointment of not having ‘that one thing you needed the most’:
Long hours of travel and being outdoors can leave your lips feeling dry and parched. Not only is that uncomfortable but is also a really selfie spoiler. Keeping a lip balm handy can be a great saviour. Try the Botanic Litchi & Mango Butter Lip Balm for a lasting supple effect. The fruity smell and nude glossy finish is an added incentive.
You can never be sure about the hygiene quotient of public spaces. With a sanitiser in your bag, nasty germs making their way into your body and messing up your holiday plans is one less thing to worry about. We are rooting for the Zuci Coconut Verbena Hand Sanitiser for its moisturising properties and travel-friendly packaging that rules out the risk of spills.
Yeah, holiday tan is a thing to flaunt but you don’t want to come back sunburnt, and so, having a sunscreen in your kit is non-negotiable. You can either opt for an all-natural product such as the Lotus Herbals Safe Sunblock Cream or a moisturiser-sunscreen combination such as the Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 24 if you want to stick to a minimalistic packing style.
The classic kohl look never goes out of style and it is also something you can never go wrong with. Having a kajal in your makeup bag can save the day when you don’t have time for the whole winged-liner regime and still make you look like a million bucks. We are totally in love with the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique for its smooth texture and lasting effect.
Smelling good is a big part of feeling good. To make sure all that wandering about does not let the sweat overpower your freshness, bring a reliable fragrance such as Nike Hub Eau De Toilette with you. It’s light, natural fragrance makes it ideal for daytime use and a single application will see you through the day.
Keeping your skin duly hydrated and well moisturised is essential to not let your explorations take a toll on your skin. Try the Lakme Peach Milk Moisturiser that is ideal for the body as well as the face, even for under makeup application – a single product for all your moisturising needs.
