Can you guess what my number one travel beauty must have is? I'll give you a hint...It's not makeup. It does protect the skin I apply my makeup to however. It's sunscreen of course (but not just any old sunscreen, more on that later)! No matter what time of year I'm traveling, you'll always find sunscreen in my bag, but it's especially important this time of year. This summer has been a real scorcher all over the country. Many states are seeing record highs. So, if you have a trip on the books, it's most likely going to be HOT! That means the sun will be out in full force and you need to shield your precious skin from it.
I obviously pack a hat, oversized sunnies and a coverup that, well, covers up my skin for those sunny poolside times, but it's not like I live under an umbrella my whole vacation. I want to get out there and experience all my destination has to offer! So, I need a solid sunscreen that I can depend on. I do have a few go-tos that I live for in my everyday life. That being said, I happen to be one of those unlucky people who always has something explode in her suitcase. So, I'm not keen on packing too many tubes and bottles of things. And that is why my number one travel beauty must have is so glorious. It's a sunscreen STICK! And not just the baby one that you use for your face.
