HOLIDAY WITH BALANCE

Let's face it: We can sometimes get a little carried away on vacation. Whether it's overeating, overdrinking, or over-anything - holidays have us feeling like taking a break from our normal routines. This is all well and good (and encouraged!), but it's important to remember to maintain the balance. 

We spoke with lifestyle maven Carrie Hammer, who gave us her list of go-to essentials for taking wellness on the road - and keeping our health regimens on point. 

Kingso Water Bottle  - This is perfect for keeping hydrated at all times (so essential). The temperature control is amazing, and it keeps drinks cold/hot all day long.  Plus, it LOOKS cute. 

Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen (SPF 50) - It goes without saying that sunscreen is an absolute MUST. And nothing under 50! I highly recommend Sum Bum because it smells amazing and absorbs into skin without a greasy texture. 

Polarized Sunglasses - Polarized sunnies are essential for protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. This includes shielding your delicate eye skin from the sun's harmful effects, as well as helping you see clearer. I personally love these Ray Ban aviators, which are perfect for summer. 

Eye Mask - New surroundings can sometimes be difficult to fall & stay asleep in, and as we all know, lack of sleep can take a toll on your mood and energy. Bring a sleep mask to help get a proper night's rest; I like this "Wake me for Champagne" one, which is always a good reason to get out of bed.
