It is no surprise for many of us that Latin women dominate the world of beauty pageants especially the beauty contest called Miss Universe. Latinas take lots of pride in their beauty regiment from spending rigorous time at the gym, to following their favorite beauty blogger for never ending beauty tips. Latinas simply enjoy looking presentable and stylish. You will catch a Latina red handed watching their favorite novelas and scanning their favorite actress for beauty tips. According to statistics, there is a growing population of Hispanic women spending more money in the beauty industry, and companies targeting Latina consumers. Allow me to shed some light on another industry which Latinas are warming up to: the Travel Industry. Not at a large scale yet, but Latinas are baby stepping themselves to earn more sky miles, which brings me to the reasons why I want to cluster a few tips regarding Beauty and travel for the latin beauty.
1. Beauty Rest
It may sound obvious, but us Latinas are known for running around like a greyhound trying to shop for our travel outfits, make-up, hair salon, and our “do not get on that plane without a pedicure/manicure” regiment while forgetting to get some rest so we arrive at our destination looking and feeling fresh. So mija, start a new routine. Start packing and planning for your trip ahead of time so on the final days before your vacation, you can just schedule a massage instead.
2. Yelp is Your New Bestie
There are times our high demanding schedule doesn’t allow us to conquer all of our beauty regiments before a trip. So what do we do? Visit Yelp (website) and enter your destination to search where is the nearest beauty store, salon, or spa, so if you happen to need it, it is at your disposal.
3. Don’t Forget Your Accessories
Yes, there are times we tend to forget the little details. But these small details are what can make a big difference in our beauty kit. So make sure you pack pins aka “pinchos” so you can use them to wrap your hair or playfully create different updos abroad. Also, it is important to bring a small amount of cotton wipes, toiletries, and Q-Tips.
Check this beautiful pins from Amazon www.amazon.com
4. Flats Are Your New Pumps
I know you can spot a Latina canvassing a mall with high heels or stopping at their corner store with stilettos. But times have changed and comfort is the new black. Which is why it is essential to make room inside your maleta to insert flats, sandals, or comfortable sneakers. Why? Because when you feel like conquering the streets of Rome, you want to do it in comfort. Trust me on this one!
5. Do Not Wear Make-Up On Board
Please do not board a plane with applied make-up and leave it on so when you land your face looks like The Joker. You don’t want to deal with that. Instead, remove your makeup and 15 minutes before you land, just re-apply it.
6. Silk Pillow
Instead of planting your head on those standard airplane pillows and having your hair look like it had a battle with static, just purchase a silky travel pillow.

7. Keep Germs At Bay
Germs are a global concern and they are not planning to disappear from this planet anytime soon. So pack that scented sanitizer inside you cosmetic bag and squeeze when needed.
8. Polish Your Skin
Want to know the secret behind soft shiny skin? If so, start exfoliating often especially when your getaway involves sun and beach.
This is one of my favorite exfoliator purchased at Amazon click on this link –100% Natural Scrub
9. Bring Some Workout Gear
I know we spend months on preparing for that trip by working out rigorously before our departure day. But why not keep your fitness routine abroad? By working out at your destined place, you can interact with the locals, check out the neighborhood, and relax your mind.
10. Don’t Check In Your Toothbrush
Last but not least, do not leave your toothbrush or toothpaste inside your check-in bag. Instead bring it with you and place it inside your purse. Why? After a long flight or during any baggage delays, you want to make sure you have a toothbrush and toothpaste at your disposal. You don’t want to negotiate any flight delays with bad breath. Bonus: stash some undies in your purse while you are at it.
There chicas! This is just a short list to get your traveling happening on a good start. It is always good to be prepared than not. And why not look fabulous when strolling down that airport runaway….
