The Summer is just around the corner, and with warmer weather and longer days, it's the perfect time to plan a vacation. Aside from packing your swimsuits and beach towels, there are other items that will come in handy during your getaway. From practical sun protection to a good read, here are five must-have essentials that, unlike Bad Bunny, shouldn't have un verano sin ti.

1. Lip Balms

During the summer months, your lips can quickly become dry and chapped under the sun. So, be sure to pack tinted lip balms for a touch of color and hydration, like our Lip Balm Duos. Keep one in your beach bag and one in your hotel room for easy reapplication.

2. Bronzer is a Must!

The vacation glow typically takes awhile to show but you can still achieve a sun-kissed glow even if it’s night one and you have yet to hit la playa. Pack a bronzer like LUNA MAGIC's Bronzer and swipe some on for an instant warmer look — apply it to areas where the sun naturally hits your face, such as the forehead, cheeks, and nose.

3. Must-have Sunglasses

It wouldn't be an essentials list if we didn't mention sunglasses – and not only is it a fashion accessory, but it's also great for protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. We recommend selecting a pair that complements your face shape and matches your style to elevate your vacation wardrobe.

4. Spray Sunscreen

Sunscreen reapplication is key, especially after swimming or sweating. Opt for a convenient and travel-friendly spray sunscreen that is comfortable to apply, can be easily thrown into your beach bag, and provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.  

5. Good Read or Journal

Nurture your mental health with a new book or some reflective journaling. You can snag a book from a Latina author, like The Making of Yolanda La Bruja by Lorraine Avila, or even pick up a new journal, like this notebook illustrated by Reyna Noriega, that can inspire you to get creative with your thoughts.
