Vacation Recovery: 6 Beauty Picks For Exhausted Skin + Hair

hair masks, lip masks, luxe clearing serums…certain beauty products are just made for the end of summer. As we wrap up a good season’s worth of beach and travel days, we love the idea of taking a Saturday morning or Monday night and going into full-on beauty recovery mode.

Take a nap or bath (or both!), make a green smoothie or a giant salad, and gather some of our favorite green beauty luxuries to restore that sun-fried hair and travel-parched skin…

NUDE Skincare Progenius Omega Treatment Rescue

Oils always sound intimidatingly rich, but this one is feather-light. In the late summer heat, this oil is perfect for nourishing, while still purifying and clarifying skin texture.  


Nude Skincare Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash 
We’ve been fans of Nude Skincare from the very beginning (it was launch by Bono’s wife!) Bonus, the products are actually genius. This dry powder whips up into a frothy cleanser that’s so powerfully brightening, you’re only meant to use it 3 times a week. Summer recovery indeed. 


Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

That’s right, lip mask. This balm is the bomb. Coming from one of our favorite natural brands, Bite, this balm is rich, natural, healing, and has the kind of texture you just need to experience for yourself. If you didn’t have something this great with you on vacation, use it heal lips post-vacation. So luxe – a fall purse staple. 


Karuna Anti-Oxidant Face Mask
Fabric masks are so convenient, we’ve become a little too relaxed about wearing them. We whipping them out and throwing them on during flights, in hotel rooms, at our desks – to the terror of everyone around us. This anti-oxidant mask is filled with skin plumping hyaluronic acid and peptides, plus healing aloe vera, chamomile and licorice. Get hooked. 


KYPRIS Clearing Serum
This is pimple cream fit for a fairytale princess. Kypris’ clearing serum is on another level when it comes to what she calls “fussy” skin. Don’t damage your already ailing skin with harsh chemicals, instead soothe and nourish skin while helping it recover from trauma. Great for breakouts, but works well on irritate skin of all kinds. 


Hello Hair Hydrating Mask

We’re loving everything being imported up here from Australia lately, Hello Hair’s masks included. Throw this little Capri Sun-like pack onto your strands and keep them coated in this coconut oil-based mask to counter all that sun, all that sand, and goodness knows what else you’ve put your hair through this summer!
