If you were told you had the opportunity to go to Turks & Caicos, but you only had 10 minutes to pack your 10 essential beauty products, what would you take with you? Have the sweat beads started rolling?
No need to fret. We’ve got you covered. Add a few of these gems to your daily or weekly pampering sesh.
You should always have a cleanser nearby, even if you don’t wear makeup. A cleanser is crucial to keeping your pores as clean as can be. We’re loving the Bliss Rose Gold Rescue Cleanser $13 because of its delicate formula for sensitive skin. It gently removes dirt, makeup, and excess oil without leaving your skin dry.
Of all the serums you can invest in, invest in a Vitamin C Serum. Here’s why: It softens fine lines, prevents wrinkles from forming, reduces acne scars, evens out skin tone, brightens dark spots, reverses sun damage, and prevents wrinkles from forming.
Use the serum after your cleanser and before your moisturizer. We recommend Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum $118. I know what you’re thinking - $118???? Totally get it, but skincare should be thought of as an investment. If it’s going to make a difference in your skin, wouldn’t you want to shell out some coin to look more youthful?
Never forget to moisturize your face and body. No one wants to walk around with dry, ashy skin. Just thinking about it makes me itchy. For those in need of a double-duty moisturizer that is hydrating and fragrance-free, check out La Roche Posay Lipikar AP+ Intense Repair Moisturizing Cream $19.99.
This bottle is 13.5 fl oz, and a little goes a long way. It’ll leave your skin hydrated and plump. You can use it on your face and body without worrying if it’s going to break you out.
Now you know you’ve got to wear sunscreen every time you step foot outside. Sunscreen is a barrier from harmful UVA and UVB rays. The last thing you want is to get dark spots and blotchiness on your face because you skipped out on the sunscreen.
We recommend this 2-in-1 formula by Skin Laundry, Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF35 $25. It’s a non-greasy formula that provides a sheer matte finish.
Foundation is a staple product that most women (or men) have in their makeup bag. You want a sheer yet buildable foundation. A great foundation that will last you all day and night is Dior’s Backstage Face & Body Foundation $40. With 40 shades to choose from, you’re sure to find one that will fit your complexion.
This foundation is lightweight and long-lasting with a skin-like radiance that will give you that even complexion everyone desires.
Your concealer should give you enough coverage without looking too cakey or without settling in your fine lines too much. Unfortunately, most concealers will crease, so you’ve got to find one that will crease the least.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer $27 will not disappoint. With 30 shades to choose from, this concealer has minimal to no creasing. It has a beautiful full-coverage look so a little will go a long way. This concealer is loved by many.
For a natural, dewy flush that will look beautiful, check out Clove + Hallow’s Hydratint Blush Serum $19. This product is 100% cruelty-free and vegan. It’ll leave your cheeks hydrated. A little goes a long way so be mindful of the amount you put on. It’s a buildable formula so if you like a bolder look, pat on some more.
We all want those long, luscious lashes without having to add a strip of false lashes every day. You’ve got to check out Thrive Causmetics Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara $24. This mascara won’t clump, flake, or smear.
If you use hair products like dry shampoo, hairspray, waxes, or pastes, then you’re going to want this product. If you are constantly styling your hair because, well, you want to look good, then your hair is going to have product build-up that will make it look dull and flat after some time.
You’ll need to strip all of the gunk from your hair at least once a week or every other week. R&Co’s Acid Wash $32 will leave your hair squeaky clean without stripping the oils or color from your hair. With regular use, it’ll strengthen your hair.
Lipsticks, glosses, liquid lipsticks, and liners are all great products, but if your lips are crusty and dry, no lip color will look good - facts. You’ve got to keep your pout hydrated and soft. Check out Dr. Lipp’s Nipple Balm $14.50 for luscious, glossy, and hydrated lips.
That’s it! Those were our ten essential beauty products. Give these a try and start noticing a difference in your skin!
