Best Spas In NYC: Top Beach Vacation Tips

Pack Your Own Face Wash When you're packing for paradise, don't forget to include your own face wash. The last thing you'll want is a bar of soap touching your complexion. Soap is normally too drying and your skin will already be roasted from the sun and water. Body Moisturizer Bring a body balm to keep your skin soft and supple. Remember that the sun will dehydrate you and also dry out your skin. Using the right body moisturizer will help your skin from becoming a leathery mess. Always Pack A Hat Lastly, always pack a hat for at least the most intense moments of the day. I love the beach but I never let the sun directly touch my face. Radiation accumulates over time. The sun being a form of radiation is similar. This is why sun damage accumulates over time and is never necessarily obvious from the first sun burn. Lastly and most importantly you'll need a very good sunscreen. Not all sunscreens are created equal. My favorites are those that contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide as the main ingredient. These types of sunscreens are a "physical mineral block," which means they sit on top of your skin versus being absorbed. They are typically nonirritating, hypoallergenic and available in a lotion or a powder form. My favorites are "Solar" SPF 58, "Tizo" SPF 40 and "Tizo 3", its SPF 40 but is also water resistant. You can get them at the salon when you call. Lastly, I look forward to seeing you at the salon where you will be dazzled by how great your skin looks.
