Warmer weather means that we’ll soon be packing our bags for a long-awaited Spring Break trip. 

While our vacations certainly won’t look the same as they did pre-2020, one thing is for sure: We’ll be spending time outside. Not only is it much easier to stay socially distanced in the great outdoors, but many wary travelers will be looking for “staycation” options like camping, hiking, and lakehouses to avoid busy tourist areas and airports. 

Pack light and keep it simple with three skincare essentials that will keep your skin happy and healthy, even when you’re away from home:


Whether you’re lounging on the coastline of St. Tropez or roughing it in the backwoods, there’s never a good excuse to go to sleep with an unwashed face. 

CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser is designed to remove dirt, oil, and dead cells while maintaining your skin’s protective barrier. That’s essential when you’re planning on spending your days in the sun, as healthy skin will withstand the elements better than damaged skin.

If you’re really in a pinch, CeraVe’s® Make-Up Remover Cleansing Cloths can be an occasional alternative to washing your face. Try not to do this often, though, as there is no substitution for a full cleanse. 


Fun in the sun means the potential for dryness, burns, and damage. Fight back with a potent moisturizer that works to keep your skin hydrated and your skin barrier intact. 

NuCelle RX® Mandelic Moisturizer meets all the criteria for warm weather hydration. It won’t feel heavy or oily on your face, it contains a range of skin-nurturing vitamins, and it features PARSOL 1789®, designed to shield against burning UVA and UVB rays. 

For more intense protection in your moisturizer, Revision Skincare’s Multi-Protection Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 is an untinted, lightweight, and oil-free age-defying moisturizer formulated with peptides and hyaluronic acid. It provides essential hydration while actively fighting back against UV damage, free radicals, and the signs of aging.

Sunscreen and Lip Balm with SPF

In addition to the sunscreen in your moisturizer, you should also bring additional protection for your body. Elta MD® carries a range of broad-spectrum SPF designed for the face, body, and lips. 

UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47 is a natural daily sunscreen with chemical-free active ingredients. It provides a physical SPF, zinc oxide, that effectively shields your skin from UVA and UVB radiation. The formula glides on easily and rubs in quickly, making it an excellent choice for on-the-go sun protection. For active lifestyles, UV Sport SPF 50 is water-resistant up to 80 minutes. 

Finally, take care of your pout. UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36 is a creamy, long-lasting sunscreen that soothes, moisturizes, and protects sun-exposed lips. It contains 5% Hydromanil™ for immediate and long-term moisturization.
