Staycation Beauty: 5 Skin Care Products to Use When You Can't Take a VacationDecember 13, 2018
It’s cold here in the Northeast, and the frigid conditions won’t be letting up anytime soon. The best way to get through a harsh winter? Vacationing to a warmer location. It sure sounds nice, but we realize that escaping to paradise through winter’s end or even for just a few days or weeks isn’t always a feasible option. That’s why if you aren’t able to take a tropical vacation this winter, you should opt for a staycation filled with skin care products that’ll transport you (mentally, that is) to a warmer place. Here are some of our favorite skin care products—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—that can bring the vacation to your hotel room.
A Multi-Use Moisturizer: L’Oréal Paris Hydra Nutrition All Over Balm
One of the best parts of vacationing (in our opinion) is the part where we get to pamper our skin from head to toe. The one caveat is that it can’t take too much time out of our schedules. Since it’s cold where you are, moisturizing is still a key component to your daily skin care routine. To cut down on the amount of products you need to use, opt for one multi-purpose hydrating balm that can be applied in multiple spots. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All-Over Balm can soothe and rescue dry skin on your face, neck, chest, and hands in one fell swoop.

A Face & Lip Scrub: L’Oréal Paris Purify & Unclog Kiwi Scrub
Why use an ordinary face scrub when you can use one that’s formulated with the seeds of a tropical fruit? From the brand’s Pure-Sugar line, L’Oréal Paris’ Purify & Unclog Kiwi Scrub—with real kiwi seeds and three pure sugars—can purify skin and unclog pores for a soft, smooth feel. Say goodbye to dirt, oil, and impurities and hello to healthier, brighter-looking skin.
A Fresh-Scented Toner: Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner
Stop daydreaming about cucumber spritzers on the sandy shores of a tropical island, and instead treat your skin to this cucumber-based, non-drying toner. Made with herbal extracts for gentle balancing, Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner leaves skin clean, soft, and soothed.
A Moisturizer with Sunscreen: Vichy Aqualia Thermal SPF 25
Beach trip or not, sunscreen is still the most vital part of any daily skin care routine. For continuous hydration and daily protection from UV rays, opt for this thermal water-infused face moisturizer with SPF. Vichy Aqualia Thermal SPF 25 is hydrating, oil-free, and rich in rare minerals. Remember, you don’t need a beach day to protect your skin from the sun.
A Renewing Body Cream: Carol’s Daughter Ocean Flowers Renewing Body Cream
When it comes to beauty products that smell like vacation, this body cream is at the forefront. Formulated with marine algae, this body cream smells clean and refreshing, and will transport you to the ocean. Scent aside, the formula can hydrate thirsty skin and lock in moisture all day long.
