top tips: spring break beauty

Whether you’re a college student jetting off to Cancun or a mom of three loading up the car for the drive to Disney, you want to feel relaxed and prepared for your spring break. Don’t worry, DGSkincare’s got you covered! These essential-for-everyone spring break prep pointers are guaranteed to keep you looking your best, even if you’re low maintenance – because let’s be real, when it comes to going on vacation, it’s about the destination, not the journey.

Exfoliate!

Sounds crazy, but scrubbing off those dead skin cells will not only allow for a more even-looking (sunless!) tan, it’ll prevent breakouts, ingrown hairs – and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles! What’s not to love? I’m sure you know and love the Alpha Beta® Peels already, but have you tried the Alpha Beta® Smoothing Body Towels? The little scrubby towelette will help the Glycolic, Mandelic, Azelaic. And Salicylic Acids (just to name a few!) get the job done with one swipe.

Glow!

My skin is extremely fair and I’ve come to realize that it’s not the best look for me in warmer weather, especially if I’m hitting the beach — but I don’t want to tan because hey, it’s not all that great for skin. Besides the scary risk of cancer, tanning can make me look older faster. I want to look as young as I possibly can for as long as I possibly can, so instead of using the sun’s rays to get a little more radiant, I use our Alpha Beta® Glow Pads – they’re easy, portable, and look natural (even on us ghostly gals). They also include anti-aging ingredients to help allay those “I’m getting old!” fears.

Sunscreen!

Above all else, frequent and thorough application of sunscreen is the most important tip for spring break beauty. Honestly, it’s the most important beauty tip all year round! Dr. Gross is passionate about healthy, protected skin — he has background as a skin cancer researcher — so you’re probably not surprised that sunscreen use is one of his most repeated tips to his patients. Try our Powerful Sun Protection SPF 45 Cream to keep your skin protected out there – don’t forget to reapply!

What lipstick will I be rocking over spring break? I have to admit that I’m obsessed with IT Cosmetics’ Lip Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quoi. It’s a sheer, moisturizing lipstick that turns into a natural pink with your body heat. Coolest part about it? It’ll look different on you than it will on your best friend – which I absolutely love. We’re actually giving one away this week — in addition to the other products I mentioned in this post — on our Facebook page as part of our giveaway, so be sure to check it out before it ends at 5pm EST today!

Besides our beauty tips, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare wants you to be safe, stay hydrated, and have fun on your spring break! Let me know where you’re headed in the comments.
