Las Vegas Hair & Skin Essentials

I’ll be spending a large portion of the summer in Las Vegas with J.  He’ll play poker almost everyday, with an occasional day off to hang out with me.

One thing I need to do before I go is restock my arsenal of desert beauty products.  It is HOT out there, and my fair skin is no match for the Nevada sun.  Here’s my list of must-have products to keep my hair and skin healthy and looking good:

One great thing about the dry air out there is that you can go an extra day between hair washes.  I recently learned that this Bumble Surf Spray is the key to mastering the “effortless” look- several days in a row!  I curl my hair once, and just spritz and scrunch on day 2 (and 3…and maybe 4?) Because really, who wants to blow dry and curl their hair when it’s 110* outside?

Broad-spectrum sunblock with a high SPF.  I use a spray for my body, but this lotion for my face and neck.  I wear it all the time in Las Vegas, even if I’m just stepping outside for a second.  I keep some in my purse, too, so I can reapply every few hours.

A daytime moisturizer with SPF.  This is an everyday essential no matter where you are, but the list wouldn’t be complete without it.

A fabulous, rich night cream.  Since I have low maintenance skin, I don’t usually bother with night cream (naughty, I know!).  But if I don’t use something thick and creamy before bed in Las Vegas, I wake up feeling like my skin is tight on my face.  Last year I used this Olay cream, but this year I’m going to try something I picked up at the local farmers market.  It’s all natural and it smells fantastic, plus I’m happy to support a local vendor.

Along with the sunscreen, I keep this hand cream in my purse  (I prefer the unscented version).  I use it a couple of times a day, and it keeps my hands and cuticles feeling good and moisturized.

And of course, WATER!  I always have a bottle in my bag.  Between the heat and the constant flow of booze, it’s literally a life-saver.

If you’re crazy enough to brave Vegas (or another desert climate) this summer, take my advice and throw these products in your suitcase (the checked one- you’re not going to make it through security with all this!).  Happy traveling 🙂

  1. Great list! Moisturizing is going to be key! I’d add some Moroccan Oil to that list, because the spray can make your hair a little dry after repeated use and the oil will protect it. Just a small amount – a little goes a long way. 🙂
