Top 13 Vacation Essentials

With summer travels in full swing, we are sharing with you our favorite beauty products and trends you should bring along with you on your upcoming trips. 

As you may know, you should absolutely be wearing sunscreen every day, especially if you’re on vacation and in direct sunlight each day. 

We recommend using the Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Protective Daily Mineral Defence SPF 50+. This sunscreen was developed in Australia, where they have the harshest climate in the world, so it was created with this in mind and to protect your skin against the harmful sun’s rays. This mineral based SPF helps maintain good skin health and protect the skin from early aging.  


Keeping your skin hydrated is key when traveling. The air inside vehicles can dry your skin quickly, so make a note to put moisturizer on your face before you start your day and throughout the day when your skin needs hydration. 

Our estheticians love the Ultraceuticals Ultra Moisturizer Cream. The moisturizer helps to balance and maintain the skin’s hydration levels and is perfect to apply morning and night before a day out and about. This is a great option for normal to dry skin types. 


Because keeping your skin hydrated is extremely important, especially on a vacation, we suggest adding a skin mist to your skincare routine and tossing it in your beach bag.  

The Ultraceuticals Ultra Hydrating Skin Mist soothes, refreshes and softens the skin. This mist works great for all skin types and can be used to set makeup too, making it the perfect skin mist to use throughout the day and at the beach to cool and hydrate your skin.  

4. Facial Cleanser

Finding the right facial cleanser for your skin can make all the difference in your skin’s appearance. Plus, when you’re on vacation you want a cleanser that will clean out any clogged pores, remove all the sunscreen from your skin and leftover makeup.  

One of our favorite facial cleansers is the Ultraceuticals Ultra Brightening Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is ideal for dull skin, and it leaves the skin’s complexion looking luminous.

Keeping your lips fresh and hydrated is just as important as the rest of your face. This lip saver will soothe and moisturize your lips to help give you more of that vacation glow and help fight against dehydrated lips from excess sun exposure. 

Many of us will bask in the sun on vacation and some a little longer than most to get our hair lighter (lemon juice we see you), but having our hair exposed to the sun often can damage it. 

To prevent any unnecessary breakage, split ends, thinning, or frizz, we suggest using the Aveda Sun Care Protective Veil. This product is great for all hair types and serves exactly what its name is – as a protective veil. This mist helps protect the hair from sun damage all while being waterproof, so you can still cool down in the water with it in your hair! 

Chlorine strips natural oils from your hair and skin, leaving your locks dry, rough, and damaged. The Aveda Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser is here to save your hair and skin from any harm that chlorine may cause. This cleanser removes chlorine, salt and product residue while helping to maintain moisture balance. A perfect product to add to your toiletry bag.

This treatment helps strip the chlorine out of your hair, cleansing and breathing new life to your hair.  

9. Lavender Everything!

10. Mermaidcore

Breakout your vacation outfits with the new mermaidcore trending look! We have seen the mermaidcore fashion trend skyrocket this summer. To achieve this fun look, opt for shimmery bralettes, lace-up tops, or a corset to define the mermaid bodice. For bottoms, choose a sheer flowy skirt to complete the mermaid look. As for your hair, we suggest keeping it as effortless as possible with a tousled braid, crimped beach waves or wet curl look.  

11. Claw Clips

We saw claw clips make a comeback last summer and they are still trending. Claw clips work with all hair types and help keep headaches away since you will no longer have a tight ponytail tugging on your scalp. They’re also perfect to bring with you on your vacation to keep your hair up and off your back so you can tan evenly. 

Stop into Neroli Salon & Spa to pick up a stylish claw clip for your next summer trip.

12. Crochet

A crochet dress is an ideal outfit for a hot summer day. This style is both comfortable and breathable, which makes it perfect for a night out at the beach or lake. Despite there being crochet machines, a lot of crochet outfits are still being made by hand, so each comes looking unique and one of a kind.

13. Chunky summer sandal slides

The chunky sandal look has been booming this summer and we’re loving it. They serve as great sandals to dress up and down whether you’re hitting the beach or going out for dinner. They’ll be your go-to for walking around and exploring fun new areas since most are cushioned and relatively comfortable making your vacation strolls more enjoyable.
