This week I am taking Thursday off from work and will escape the city for the first time this summer. I have known about this trip for months and am immensely looking forward to spending the holiday weekend in Cape Cod. I will only be away for four days but I have planned the perfect balance of two activity filled days and two days where the only thing tearing me away from the lounge chair will be a cold drink or a dip in the water.
And I am sure I am not alone in this but any time I head to the beach my makeup routine goes out the window. I have no idea how girls get through a full day in the sun without makeup streaming down their face, because I certainly can not. Instead of trying to cover up, my goal every summer is to get my skin in the best shape possible so I can head to the beach makeup free, where all my face is armed with is SPF. This weekend my beach bag contains:
To get ready for this 4th of July trip I used the Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask followed by a Bioré® Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip to make sure I put my best skin forward. But why are these products different? The main ingredient is charcoal but do not let the dark color throw you off, because it is known for its ability to draw out and trap impurities buried deep-down along while reducing oil and shine. The combination of these two products from the Bioré® charcoal collection really opens up your pores as the one minute mask purifies, removing twice the dirt of a basic cleanser, and then the charcoal strip unclogs pores.
The entire range of products can be found at Target, either in the beauty isle with the other cleansers and scrubs, where I picked up mine, or online at the Target website.
So what else is in my beach bag besides my Bioré® charcoal products and an oversized towel? For this trip it will be a pair of my beloved Rainbows, a small digital camera, light pink polish, oversized sunglasses, SPF, and a book my mother highly recommended at Christmas that I have not gotten around to reading yet.
I am extremely excited to escape the city this weekend and head up to Massachusetts for a few days of some much needed R&R. I will be sure to keep you all up to speed social media and look for a great post tomorrow before I sign off for the weekend!
What is your beach-bag must have?
