Any beauty queens heading for the beach this summer??? Do you have special plans to spend quality time relaxing in the sun with your family or friends? Here are a few of my beauty travel tips to make packing light and easy!

1. SAVE MONEY, TIME & SPACE: Instead of paying a fortune for new products to take with you on vacation, try searching at a local dollar store, drug store or Sephora for plastic bottles to fill with your shampoo, conditioner, face cleanser, moisturizer or any liquids that you need to bring with you. This will not only save money, but you will ultimately save space in your luggage by doing this!

2. TRAVEL SIZE PRODUCTS or PACKAGES: This is very convenient when you are only going to be away for 2-5 days. Travel size products include, shampoo, conditioner,
deodorant, bar soap, liquid shower gel, mascara, hair spray, toothpaste, mouthwash and the list can go on & on! Keep your eyes open whenever you are shopping for the FREE little packs of skin care, hair care, fragrance and anything that you can receive for free to bring on vacation so you do not have to bring BIG bottles that are heavy and take up too much room! (HINT: All you have to do is order on line or simply walk into any Sephora and request several samples of whatever beauty product or fragrance that you want! It is totally FREE!!!)

3. ZIP LOCK BAGS: Prevent any accidental spills, especially sticky liquids,
and place ALL of your beauty products inside a zip lock baggie. This is the best preventative method to protect your clothing and valuables packed inside your luggage. I have been practicing this little trick and it is a relief to find an open container safely locked up in a bag rather than stuck all over my clothes & shoes!

4. Supplements & Medicine: Instead of bring every single bottle of vitamins and medicine, try placing exactly what you need in single zip lock bags. Yes, it does take some time, effort and more than one bag, but it helps keep the weight done on the luggage and it simplifies taking your daily supplements and medicine while you are on vacation. REMINDER: Always use a marker to label each bag so you know which medicine is contained inside. Possibly you could label the supplements with “AM” or
“PM” so you know which one to take and know the exact time. (While I am on vacation, if I know that I will be out and about all day, I stash a few zip lock bags of whatever I need in my purse so I could still take my medicine or supplements on the go! Honestly, this truly works!)

5. GIFT FOR THE MAID: Want to keep your maid happy, while you are staying at your hotel or motel on vacation? Ask your AVON representative, MARY KAY lady or go to Sephora and request a FREE sample of several beautiful scented fragrances. Leave one each day for your maid (if you have enough!) or simply leave a fragrance sample on your last day to give a special “thank you” to your maid. You can be guaranteed that your hotel/motel room will be spotless and the maid will be smiling!
