Essential Clean Beauty Must-Haves for Travelling

March Break comes at a time of year when we are all done with Winter. We are over the cold, snowy mornings, scraping off our cars before work, trying to keep our grip on the road as the snow builds and builds. We are on the cusp of Spring with the birds chirping as we awake each morning, the smell in the air becoming fresher and more hopeful.

Jet-setting off to somewhere hot and sunny for the March Break makes the transition from a harsh Winter to a renewing Spring all that much easier. However, the transition for your skin from cold to hot weather can cause unwanted breakouts, irritation, and redness.

Must-Have Green Beauty Products for Vacation!

Pretty in Pink Spa Halloween Party

Here are our Must-Have clean beauty products for travel:

1. Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo cloths-to-go
– The 100% unbleached bamboo cloths are infused with vitamin C, E, and B12, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, organic honey and a blend of citrus essential oils sourced from the Middle East. They are alcohol, paraben and sulfate free, and are also 100% biodegradable. They are the perfect solution for cleaning your face from salt water, sweat, and all-over grime in a hurry!

2. Coola Sunscreen Body Spray (SPF 30)
– This spray-on sunscreen goes on clear and absorbs within seconds. With delicious scents such as Citrus Mimosa and Pina Colada, this quick and easy sunscreen application smells great while protecting your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays.

3. Coola BB Cream with SPF
– This mineral BB+ cream lightly evens out your skin tone while providing your face with SPF 30. This vegan formula is 70%+ certified organic and is perfect to give you an even complexion during the day. Note: If you are using it mostly for sun protection, remember to reapply it every two hours for maximum protection.

4. Éminence Tropical Vanilla Face Moisturizer
– This moisturizer smells like a vacation in a bottle! It has SPF 32 and is perfect if you want sun protection without any colour, such as in the BB cream. Not only does this moisturizer protect against the sun, it also hydrates and nourishes your skin at the same time!

5. Fitglow Beauty Calm Cleansing Milk
The Calm Cleansing Milk is the perfect travel cleanser it is is light, nourishing, and easy to use. This vegan, gluten-free calming blend has many purposes. It can remove make-up, cleanse your face, and reduce redness and irritation. Simply bring this cleanser and some cotton pads and you will be able to keep your skin clean and nourished throughout your days in the sun!

6. Fitglow Beauty Cloud Comfort Cream
– This light but effective moisturizer contains cloudberry which deeply hydrates skin while reducing redness and irritation, arnica to heal and smooth skin, and meadowfoam seed oil which protects the skin against environmental damage. This cream is perfect to use at night to help repair redness and irritation, while providing deep hydration to the skin.

7. Coola Tinted Mineral Liplux 
– Some of us are very diligent with applying our SPF to our bodies but often forget about our lips! Coola’s Mineral liplux provides a light tint of colour while protecting the lips with SPF 30. The skin on our lips is some of the thinnest skin we have, which means it is the quickest to burn and needs extra protection.

These products help keep your skin clean, protected, and happy so your focus can be lying on the beach, sipping on Pina coladas and enjoying quality time with your family.

Day 2 of Spa-Mas – Shauna’s Favourite Picks

I can’t live without my Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant!

Pretty in Pink Spa Halloween Party

strawberry_rhubarb_dermafoliantI can’t live without my Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant! I start each day by adding a shake of the gentle daily-use scrub to an Éminence cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling luscious and prepped for maximum results from my morning skincare products, and especially smooth for an even all-day makeup application. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to add the Éminence Citrus Lip Balm to anyone’s stocking as a perfect pout primer in the morning and as a treatment at bedtime. I would also add in glo-minerals suede lip crayon in demure – the perfect winter neutral that is matte but also moisturizing! Then layer overtop the Glo-Minerals Cream Glaze lip crayon in Heirloom for subtle shine.

firmskinacaimasque_5in_hrIf the stocking still has room, I would definitely toss in my favourite moisturizer of all time – the Éminence Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer and Masque. This leaves my skin feeling so nourished all year. In the Summer, I emulsify with Éminence Stone Crop Mist for a soothing light finish. And in our harsh Canadian Winter, I add a drop of Éminence Rosehip Triple C + E Firming Oil for deeper hydration. 

As a Co-owner of a Chiropractic and Natural Health Clinic, I think very seriously about how I treat my body, what I put into my body, and as an extension of that, I also take very seriously what I put on it, too!  I love these products because their ‘pure’ values are so aligned with my health goals. It is simply the natural choice for radically healthy beauty. 

When I shop I like to invest in quality over quantity – so I really like that Sonia has selected products that are beautifully sourced, but also results driven. You don’t need a lot, when you find what’s right for you.

When I started using customized products from Pretty in Pink, I was so excited when my thoughtful beauty choices got noticed, and people were starting to comment on my new ‘glow’.
