The time for summer getaways is here, but all the stress and excitement of traveling can take its toll on your skin. We spoke to Gabriel De Santino, President/CEO of Gabriel Cosmetics Inc., to get his top beauty tips for staying radiant on-the-go. There’s no need to bring the bathroom sink on your trip, you just need few key beauty essentials!
1. Hydrate while traveling! "Skin is our best accessory," says Gabriel De Santino. It's important to keep skin hydrated which can be challenging while traveling. You know the scenario, you are on a plane and your skin feels tight and dirty. What do you do? During the flight, spritz Sea Mineral Hydra Mist - an exhilarating blend of active ingredients from the sea, which includes sea fennel and kelp, to gently tone, hydrate and remineralize the skin. Be sure to drink lots of water too!
2. Wipes are perfect for keeping your face clean when removing makeup on-the-go! If you are doing a red-eye, the Zuzu Luxe Cosmetics Organic Cosmetic Wipes ($10) drenched with hydrating and nourishing plant extracts will gently and effectively remove makeup and mascara. (An added tip: You don’t have to rinse off with water. You want your skin to soak up all those nourishing ingredients). A spritz of the Sea Mineral Hydra Mist will lock in the moisture.
3. Keep your beauty routine simple. Summer is all about minimal makeup and keeping it light. A simple swipe of Zuzu Luxe Liquid Liner ($15) will leave a water-resistant, Sharpie-like effect on the eye, and the Gabriel Cosmetics Multi Pot ($18) is a great 3-in-1 lip, eye and cheek color that will give you that subtle summer flush.
Voila, it is summer beauty made simple!
