The Beauty Beat: Summer Travel Style

Summing up summer travel in style.

The Fourth of July, it’s almost here. If you plan to take in the firework-laden night sky in another city, we suggest packing these tips from the Fekkai, Philosophy and David Kirsch to keep your beauty routine in check.

BEAUTY: Bed bugs. Yup, they scare the pants off us, too. That’s why we’re not taking any chances. First up in our suitcase, Stop Bugging Me. From airline seats and rental cars to hotel beds, the spray kills any bed bugs who think it might be fun to journey back home to your native land. Also, be sure to stock up on the Laundry Additive for that first post-travel wash. With that worry safely squashed, it’s time to pack the girly stuff. And this time around, we’re headed straight for Fekkai. The hair care brand is now offering up kits like Brilliant Glossing Travel Faves on, which means you can pass the airport security check with just enough products to keep your hair looking brilliant all trip long. GET IT: $43. Available at Stop Bugging Me available at

SPA: Fact: You can’t take your favorite spa with you when you travel. But you can take the next best thing: Philosophy products. Think of it as your own DIY spa-to-go kit. Just be sure to include the Microdelivery Exfoliating Body Wash, $25, to slough off dry skin and make your epidermis glisten. And don’t forget Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil, $25, to take off the extra makeup you put on for a night on the town. And absolutely include Miracle Worker SPF 55 Miraculous Anti-Aging Fluid, $55, to keep you looking fresh. Plus, there will be enough leftovers to play at-home spa once you return from your exotic voyage. GET IT: Available at

GYM: Getting to a gym when you’re on vacay is a mission. But there’s no need to slack off from your routine. Instead, toss David Kirsch’s workout DVDs in your suitcase and be sure to give the routine a go each morning before you start your adventure. Keep your muscles toned with the 7-Day Prescription DVD. The express 30-minute workouts won’t eat into your vacation time and will give you enough kick to let you splurge on that extra umbrella drink. GET IT: $85.99. Available at
