How You Can Look & Feel Great On Your Summer Holiday *

*Collaborative Post.

Can you envision a moment when we were more excited for the summer break than we are right now, after dealing with the restrictions imposed by the epidemic for more than two years?   Because the preparations for a staycation may be just as exciting as those for a trip out of the country, you could find that you have just as much fun getting ready for a staycation as you do for a trip out of the country.

But how exactly do you know which components of your beauty regimen to prioritise before leaving on holiday? And how are we supposed to fit all of them into our already jam-packed calendar when we end up adding even more activities?

One Month to Go

Give some consideration to the colour of your hair.

Make sure to schedule your appointment to get your hair coloured a considerable period of time in advance of the departure date.  This will not only help protect your hair, but it will also help you save time during the hectic week before you depart for your vacation. Invest some time in advance with your stylist to look at plum hair colors as different styles. A person with colored hair may find that the sun, the beach, and the pool are more detrimental to their hair. If you color your hair and then spend a lot of time in the sun in the week immediately after the coloring process, your hair may end up looking dull and dry. If you have the good fortune to have shiny hair that grows fast, you can always choose to touch up your roots about a week before you leave if you want them to look their best. This is especially true if you have the good fortune to have glossy hair that grows quickly.

Pay attention to your teeth

It is not only challenging to find a dentist in a new town or city, but it can also be expensive and take away from the quality time that you could be spending on vacation. . Make an appointment for a checkup around one month before you leave on your vacation. This will allow any potential problems to be discovered and resolved before you set off on your excursion.

Begin your shopping now.

We will defer to your judgment over the articles of clothing, pieces of jewelry, and books you pack for your vacation in order to give you the most freedom. However, right now is also a fantastic time to get the perfect cosmetic goods for your next vacation because they are on sale. It is strongly suggested that you move liquid cosmetic items into containers that have a capacity of one hundred millilitres or less.

It is imperative that you remember to carry a sunscreen with a high SPF, as well as SPF lip balm, face and body scrub, Aloe Vera gel, bronzer (to maximize your vacation glow!), and UV protection hair mist. 

A Fortnight Before 


Are you prepared to show the world who you really are? It is essential to exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells that may be present in order to get a silky and smooth texture.


After you have thoroughly exfoliated your skin, it is imperative that you follow up with the application of a moisturizer and a serum. A good number of us are guilty of neglecting our hair in the course of getting ready for the holidays since we are in such a rush. A deep conditioning treatment should be performed on your hair once a week to maintain its health and ensure that it receives adequate nutrition. Before subjecting your skin and hair to the sun and water, you should make it your priority to saturate them with as much hydrating moisture as you can.

Start applying the fake tan 

It is never too early to start applying fake tan in the privacy and convenience of your own home, especially if you do not intend to obtain a spray tan from a trained professional before you go. It will give you a nice base layer that will prevent you from looking too pasty and will keep you looking fresh.

One Week Before 

Attend to your Brows and Lashes

Get your eyelashes coloured is another one of our ideas for pre-holiday cosmetic preparations that you should do. Because of this, your holiday make-up process will be simpler, and you will not have to worry about having panda eyes even if you use the most effective waterproof mascara there is. If you have naturally light hair or brows, you might want to give some thought to getting your eyebrows coloured. It is possible that prolonged exposure to sunshine will cause them to become even lighter in colour.


If you’re the type that likes to de-fuzz, make an appointment for waxing to be performed in the comfort of your own home so that you can ensure you will be hair-free in the manner in which you choose while you are away from your regular routine. If you are going to get a spray tan, the best time to do it is at the beginning of the week. This will give your skin the opportunity to heal and recuperate without being overly stressed.

Try a Spray Tan

A spray tan can provide you with a respectable quantity of colour and will make you feel as though you are prepared for a trip far in advance of when you will have the opportunity to achieve it naturally. In addition, unlike prolonged exposure to the sun, it will not cause your skin to prematurely age or get damaged.

The Day Before

Get your Nails Done

You are going to want to treat yourself to a summer manicure and pedicure if you want to truly immerse yourself in the mood of the summer season and get into the holiday spirit. If you have a pedicure, it does not matter if you lounge by the pool wearing sandals or barefoot since you will look incredibly lovely either way, thanks to your pedicure. In addition, this will be one of the rare chances you will have to give yourself a peaceful manicure away from the stresses of regular life, making it one of the most valuable opportunities you will have. The sun brings out the finest in bright colours, and a tan makes them seem even more stunning than they already do. If you are going to be gone for more than a week or if you are planning a more active vacation, choose a gel treatment for your nails so that they will remain in good condition for the duration of your trip.
