10 Minis That Are A Big Yes For Your Next Vacay

It’s that time of the year when I leave my corporate-girly-concrete-jungle to enter my natural habitat – a tranquil beachside, away from the cacophony of the city, sipping on a cocktail from a coconut.

Always Be Coconuting

Most of my days before the trip are spent fantasising about sporting my island-girl fits with sand on my feet and wind in my hair. All this daydreaming is going to make packing a nightmare! Luckily, I have 10 essentials that aid my procrastinator-packer behaviour.

Use this as a cheat sheet the next time you are planning a holiday.

Skin Prep

Just like you take care of your tummy while travelling, your skin too needs care. I can’t emphasise how important skin care and prep are during a vacation. While travelling, the change in altitude and weather can cause breakouts, acne, and dryness, and once you reach your destination, there will be an overall change in the atmosphere. It should be muscle memory for all of us to follow the CSMS routine, whether at home getting ready for work or on a holiday getting ready to lounge by the pool.
