Vacations should be a time to relax without a care in the world. Too often people spend vacation time focused getting coming back looking great, which wastes time and energy while on the vacation. Today we’re listing three tips for preparing for your summer trip ahead of time, as well as the local places to go for them. It’s a great idea to take care of these before a trip so that your vacation is truly a vacation. These tips help you feel better, look better, and save time on your summer beach trip.
1. Spray tan
Aside from looking and feeling better before your trip even begins, spray tanning will also help you treat your skin better and avoid a sunburn. Without the need to soak up extra rays your first day on a vacation, you will protect your skin and have a glow from the start. The best part is, the sun can even out your tan and make it a healthy one by the end of the trip. In San Francisco try Viva La Tan, a personalized airbrush tanning service which will come to you and give you a tan right in your apartment or home. It’s fast, personalized, and effective.
Eyelash extensions are all the rage these days. Not only do they enhance eyelashes and look great, they also have a convenient aspect for traveling: no time wasted applying eye makeup each morning, or taking it off each night. This service does take time as each extension is individually placed on eyelashes, but that attention to detail causes the lashes to last for 4-6 weeks. This service allows a traveler to get up and go without even checking the mirror, which is so valuable on vacation. In San Francisco we recommend Artisan Eyelashes, located in a boutique space just off Union Square. The owner Melissa has set up a personalized experience that will fit any shape, length or style of eyelash extensions. Services here look very natural and make for an even more enjoyable vacation.
Summer beach vacations go hand in hand with sandals and toes in the sand. A treatment to clean up and beautify feet will be very worth it once they are on display all trip long. A pedicure will also smooth out the skin and keep feet healthy in time for all different summer vacation activities. San Francisco’s Lux Salon is highly recommended as the place to go. Named “Best Nails in San Francisco” by Allure Magazine, this neighborhood nail salon in Hayes Valley is both chic and comfortable. The exposed brick and plush chairs create the best environment, and the service is top notch with sparkling water or tea served as you’re seated, and a varied range of services to choose from.
These extra steps before a vacation can make all the difference to look and feel your best on a beach trip this summer. Bon voyage!
