If I was stranded on a desert island, and I could only have three items with me, here is what I would take. This is assuming my water and food is taken care of by the handsome hunk that comes with the island.
First and foremost I would bring a sunscreen. Even though I would be stranded, I wouldn’t want to get wrinkles or run the risk of skin cancer. My all time favorite sunblock is from a company called Arbonne. It is an amazing company with pure, safe and beneficial products. They’re sunscreen is so effective because it does not have any harmful additives or fillers in it like many of the mainstream market brands have. I love this sunscreen because it is effective, and it is waterproof. One application will last a full day, out in the blisterning heat and survives against sweat! My bottle has lasted me two summer seasons now.
The second item I would make sure I have on hand is sunless tanner. My two favorite tanners on the market are Fake Bake and Xen Tan. Both can be found at Ulta. I have an in-depth article reviewing the best sunless products on the market if you want more information.
And lastly, would be my brow kit. This includes, tweezers, brow powder, and an angle brush. Now, most women would say that they need mascara if stranded, but did you know that the brows actually frame your entire face? It is a powerful feature we have, and if you’re like me, your brows need a little help looking full! My favorite brow powder kits are from Anastastia, and they can be found at Ulta, as well. Her line featrues all sorts of shades, and I always get one shade lighter than my natural brow color. Her kits have two shades of each color, from blondest blonde, to jet black, you can really contour your brows to create a very natural look.
Okay, my bags are packed and I am ready for my desert island vacation! As long as there are fresh cocouts to drink, and did I mention a hot hunk to do all the hunting? But if you don’t happen to land on an island, as least bring these along on your next beach vacation, or river rafting trip this summer. And be sure to snap lots of photos because you will be looking so sunkissed and healthy!
