Top 5 Spring Break Must-Haves
With winter still looming over us, knowing that our spring break vacation is just around the corner becomes a daily factor of motivation in February and March. If you guys are anything like us, we’ll have our bags packed a week ahead of time (usually to signal the end of our pre-vacation productivity). However, packing so far in advance comes with its challenges - especially over-packing. Of course we’re going to use the 5th bathing suit, or 6th pair of shoes, right?! Probably not. Well, to make packing for your spring break vacation this year as easy as possible, we have compiled a list of our top 5 spring break must-haves.
1. Your Favourite Swimsuit
Nothing makes you feel better than lounging on the beach in the perfect swimsuit! You worked hard for that spring break body and now it’s time to show it off! Take a look at one of our current swimsuit favs.
You can’t forget that SPF! The sun’s rays are very harmful to our skin, and a bad sunburn on the first couple days of your vacation can really impact your enjoyment level of the rest of the trip. When you’re choosing a natural sunscreen option look for the highest Zinc Oxide content (15-20%) as found in our Day Cream 15% Zinc Oxide, for full coverage (equivalent of SPF 30+).
3. A Great Book
Right now, some of our favourite vacation reads are: The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur, Let My People Go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard, and All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
4. The Perfect Sundress
Day or night, a really great sundress is a spring break must-have! Dress it up for a nice dinner out, or dress it down for a day at the beach. Regardless of where you wear it, it is definitely one of those vacation staples that you can’t leave the house without. Here's our current favourite sundress.
5. Our 3-Step Skin Care System
This is one of, if not the most important spring break must-haves! While you’re out there soaking up the rays, running around on outings, and having that extra margarita (or two) by the pool, your face is going to need some daily self-care. This is why it’s important to incorporate our 3-Step Skin Care System into your daily routine. Our InflorEssence Facial Cleanser acts as a gentle exfoliant that easily removes any dead skin cells that have built up over the day. Our InflorEssence Serum provides your skin with a dose of Vitamin C and acts as a base for absorbing moisturizer. Lastly, our InflorEssence Moisturizer locks in moisture for long-lasting hydration! By applying our 3-step skin care system twice a day while you’re on vacation, you’ll help to ensure that your face stays clear and fresh for all of your vacation snapshots!
Now that you have the essentials down, it won’t be that hard to fill up the rest of your suitcase. Now kick back, relax, and enjoy your vacation! You deserve it.
