On The Go Summer Essentials

By: Dominique Vasquez

Making the most of your summer means spending a lot of time on your feet or in the heat. Keeping your cool doesn’t have to be a thing to worry about this season if you pack the right essentials.

Maintain smooth skin all summer by keeping a travel size waterless shaver with you. Comfortable to use, convenient at any time, and makes an affordable investment. Venus by Gillette makes very durable mini waterless shavers that can be found at Five Below for under $3. One side of the shaver has a spongy applicator that dispenses gel, and the opposite side is where the actual razor is. Useful for spontaneous poolside relaxation or beach trips.

A summer glow is not a want, but a need when it comes to making the most of your summer. There may not always be time on your schedule to sunbathe or to book a spray tan appointment, so picking out a body shimmer stick in a fun shade will cast radiance in an instant. Body shimmer mist and glittery body oils are other fun ways to give off an immediate glow. Many beauty stores and some drug stores carry these products, I’ve found mine at Ulta beauty and Victoria’s Secret for example.

Create a solid sense of unity between your summer outfits and the sunny weather by stapling your look with a high gloss lip. You can get shiny, saturated coverage by using lip oils, such as Aquafina’s lip oil (dollar store find). If you are more interested in a lip balm that’s concentrated on strong health benefits, Jack Black Intense Lip Therapy is made to last and contains shea butter to nourish. This lip balm can be found at Sephora for $8 and comes in multiple fragrances. Peppermint is a top seller that leaves a long-lasting, minty finish

Keeping these essentials with you this summer easily allows you to stay refreshed while still being able to pack light, the perfect balance to keep up regardless where summer 2019 takes you.
