6 Beauty Essentials to Pack for a
Being gloriously off the grid for a few days means a more laid-back routine, but we still enjoy looking (breezily) put-together. From gleamy jasmine-spiked body oil and an incredibly restorative hair mask to the lip and cheek stain that’s as effortless as it is sexy, these luxurious essentials make just about every weekend feel more summery.
1. LUMINIZING FACE SERUM
The dewy sheen you get from this soothing serum is beyond, not to mention the key flourish to off-the-grid perfection. Light-reflecting mineral pigments give skin wild luster, while nourishing omegas and hydrating sweet almond oil are excellent for the long term.

2. BODY OIL
This gorgeous, charmingly summery sea-kelp-and-hyaluronic-acid-infused oil leaves skin glowing and smooth. It’s the best after a day in the water, and the lingering jasmine scent is the sexiest—we even dab it on as perfume.

This sunscreen cream sinks in like a dream and is as incredible for a trip to the farmers’ market as it is for a day at the beach or hiking. It has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for broad-spectrum protection and hydrates with a beautifully nourishing blend of shea, aloe, and calendula.
