After a harsh winter that feels like its lasted an eternity, Spring Break is finally here! Time to trade in those plum and deep red lipsticks for something a bit more light and airy – along with that wool jacket. Time to hit the beach with a carefree spirit and some spring break beauty essentials. During this time of year, less is more. Follow our Spring Break Beauty Essentials guide and you’ll soon be glowing like the sun goddess you are.
When it comes to spring break beauty first things first: sunscreen. Getting a golden tan is a spring break yes, but skip the sunscreen and you’ll be as red as a lobster. Make sure to use at least an SPF 25 and re-apply every two hours or after swimming. Pack our Environ Sunscreen SPF 25 and a hat. Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later.
You want to radiate, not shine. Being out in the hot sun all day will cause you to sweat, including the skin on your face. Apply a pressed powder, like our Bella Reina 7 Free Vegan Mineral Powder, to fight oil and while covering blemishes for a natural, flawless look.
Give that sun-kissed glow a boost by adding a touch of bronzer to your cheekbones. Ecco Bella FlowerColor Vegan Bronzing Powder Sunflower will highlight your tan while nourishing skin in vegan-friendly flower wax infused minerals, aloe, vitamin E and green tea.
Look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed without fear of looking like a raccoon. Spring Break means sun, sand and surf, so an eye-popping mascara that’s also waterproof is a must. Try our Beauty Without Cruelty Vegan Waterproof Mascara to keep lashed looking gorgeous all day.
Kick off those boots and show off your toes! The only acceptable footwear for Spring Break is flip-flops and wedges. Whether you opt for polish that’s bright and tropical or pale and breezy, give your nails a pop of color. Our top choices for spring break are Bella Reina 7 Free Vegan Nail Lacquer Polish in On Vacation or Zoya Nail Polish Professional Lacquer in Rue.

Dot it on your wrists and neck to stay smelling fresh. Plus, lavender oil is loaded with aromatherapy benefits to revitalize not only your mood, but also the mood of everyone around you!

Take a deep breath in and exhale, “Om.” Reward your body for all the hard work you put in leading to Spring Break so that you could rock that itsy bitsy bikini. Keep your workout simple with some yoga and meditation. Find your inner peace on the Gaiam Yoga Mat in Tie Dye Blue that’s as blue as the ocean you’ll dive into later. Best of all, it’s a workout that fits in your suitcase.
Don’t forget to keep you lips moisturized. Kanebo Mode Gloss Lip Gloss Lipstickkeeps lips moisturized with vitamin E and provides just a hint of color.
A day basking in the sun, sand and sea spray may be paradise but not without doing quite a number on your skin. It’s important to pamper it every night and put back any moisture lost during the day. Use Nancy Regan Skincare Rose Rosehip Argan Oil, made with 100% Pure Argan Oil and antioxidants to nourish skin at its deepest level and promote healthy cell renewal. Use it in the morning and at night to fight wrinkle-causing damage to keep you a Spring Break Beauty 24 hours a day.
