Travel with Intention
The best way to prep for a trip is not to over prepare but rather prepare with intention. The first step is sorting out options that cater to the climate. With those curated options, I then cross reference the trip itinerary and ensure all products are pertinent to all aspects of the trip.
When you think of Tulum the first thing that comes to mind is the clear beautiful water. I knew most of my Tulum getaway would consist of sunbathing and being in the water. Because of this, I prioritized packing products that protect skin from the tropical climate, during the trip and after. I brought three sunscreens — Supergoop! Women’s Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C SPF 50as my go-to for
PRO TIP: I travel with travel size for everything I know I will use less off.
Like any other tropical beachside destination, the culture in Tulum is all about embracing natural beauty so I focused on skincare and the only makeup essentials I brought along are listed below:
Chanel Eyeshadow in a not yet released color (will link similar products below)
Chanel Beauty Highlight and Bronze set (not yet released)
I didn’t bother with shampoo since I wanted to embrace the salt in my hair and honestly knew that even the showers would probably have
ASARAI Earth Tones Face Maskunclogs pores, calms inflamed skin, and hydrates — all important details my skin needed while outside and in the sun all day.
My cleanser of choice to remove makeup and debris from the day and calm my skin was the Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser
For moisturizer I brought along something light but hydrating — Susanne Kaufmann – Intensive Cold Cream, 50ml – Colorlessand mixed in True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster Skin Care Serumto repair my skin and stimulate collagen production.
I kept my face oils to a minimum for this specific trip but made sure to incorporate the Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil. Its feels like a hybrid between oil and water and made my skin texture stay extra silky and soft.
