Vacation Skin Care

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Ahhh the humidity is making my skin freak out! I am breaking out like crazy. BUMMER...and I forgot to pack my favorite mask. I made a little trip to our hotel's spa yesterday and picked up a "Warming Hungarian Herbal Mud Mask." Sounds like it means business right?! I loved it!

My top two vacation skin care must haves are sunscreen and a good mask.

If you are camping or taking a more rugged outdoorsy vacation then I would switch out a mask for facial cleansing cloths.

What are your vacation skin care must haves? Please share!


On a side note: Poor Max completely freaked out when he saw tar faced Mommy! He was running all over the hotel room saying "Mamaamaamma." So I took it off and reapplied it when he went to bed. :)

I like to bring some sea salt spray (preferrably bumble and bumble-which is awesome) to just spray in my hair when it's wet to get some waves, since I hate spending time getting ready when on vaca. Also an exfoliator, because I generally burn in the sun so when I peel an exfoliator is ideal to get the dead skin off

I have to say i am in need of a serious face mask. This sounds like a good one to me!

Emily said...

Poor guy! Bless his heart he thought his momma had been taken over by face mask mom.

Anne said...

Even with a mud mask, you're still gorgeous Lindsay! LOL Poor little Maxie.

When I was younger and at the beach ALL the time, I used to love an after sun milk. Also Evian water spray is always nice in a warm climate and when travelling long distances.

Ah, the memories!

I admire you for sneaking that in :) I'd never have a chance :)

Kelly said...

What a good idea! I have to bring serious moisturizer along, especially on this last trip the hotel water was so hard it really dried my skin out.

Terry said...

Poor Max, but it's kind of funny. I definitely have to bring decent shampoo. I used to try to make due with the hotel shampoo but my hair looked terrible from it. Oh and conditioner of course. :)

Lindsay you are so cute! How funny you scared little Max!

On vacation I like a good sunscreen and a soothing lotion w/ Aloe in case I get burned. And this post reminds me that it's about time for me to apply a mask!

Meg {henninglove} said...

you are too cute lindsay! poor little max, hope he hasn't been like that all day long. vacations are more important to keep your skin healthy, sometimes on vacation i tend to forget my normal routine and of course my skin pays for it, gotta keep that routine!

Sara Jahan said...

Just out of curiosity, what is this favorite face mask that you forgot to pack?
I am in need of a good one!
Xoxo,
Sara

marina (yummy mummy) said...

So cute! My daughter freaks out when I have a towel on my head, so I better not even attempt a mask while she's awake :)

I always travel with small bottle of rose water spray. I hate how dry airplanes make my skin so I am the crazy spraying this during the flight so I don't look 10 years older when I land!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Sara Jahan- One of my favorites is by a company called Eminence. The mask I love is called Eight Greens Phyto Masque. When I found out they carried this brand at the hotel I am staying at I did a little happy dance! I tried a new one this week though and it is AMAZING!

Here is the link

I also do this one at least once a week. Makes my skin feel incredible.

Miss Lindsay said...

I was just reading all of your skin care tips last week... absolutely love all that I am learning. My skin is freaking out too and needs major TLC.

Sharstin said...

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

LOL....you should go down to the pool with that thing on. I definately need a go exfoliating scrub and makeup remover when I travel for work!

Becca said...

Ariana said...

All I can say is I love ProActive. Been using it for a month, no problems!

We LIVE in Middle TN, not vacation here, so hy skin is ALWAYS exposed to the heat&humidity... BLECH!

but seriously, ProActive has an awesome mask :)

Lindsay said...

Oh I just adore you Linds! The top picture made me smile! And to hear what your little guy said, so funny! Humidity is not so fun, is it?! My whole body had to get used to it when we moved out to the east.

Daisy said...

This looks so funny! Mine would be face wash!

Tonia @ TheGunnySack.com said...

Poor little guy!! I use the same stuff on vacation as I do at home except I add more sunscreen.

Jayme and Mendi said...

Love this post!!! That is a great pic!!

I guess ours would be moisturizer and eye cream...boring! :-)

Does mascara count? :) I use Mary's Kay's day and night serums.

Natalie said...

only you could look cute in a muddy face mask!

MM said...

Hello sweetie!! Thank you so much for your lovely comment!!
What a nice blog you have!! Follow you!

Great post, honey! You look so cute with that mask on! Poor Max!
I use a spray with thermal water and it does wonders for my skin!

Have a lovely day!

xoxoxo

Wendy said...

LOL... I could never pull this off and look as good as you. Seeing as I'm an old woman- my skin must, regardless of where I'm at, is pure vitamin E oil. I apply at night after exfoliating, it moisturizes better than anything else and has healing properties so it tends to combat wrinkles/scars. Good stuff and very affordable.

Amy said...

Stunning. Even in a face mask.

Rachael said...

This is so timely! I'm out semi-camping and my face is NOT happy. Unfortunately, they don't sell masks in town so I think I'm just gonna have to wash my face extra well and save that tidbit away for our next trip.

simplyvonne said...

my gosh my skin is also been breaking out too!!!! :( well you certain dont look like you are!

Mary Lane said...

OK, I know this is bad, but my vacation skincare routine is usually to just throw all the sample-sized cleaners, scrubs, gels, masks, serums, moisturizes, etc. in a bag. I try different stuff every night, sometimes with diastrous results. Don't judge!
