Holidays are a time to chill out. But that doesn’t mean you have to treat your body like a dumpster! It IS possible to have an awesome – and healthy – holiday without tossing good habits out the airplane window.
All it takes is a little forward planning and 5 travel-friendly essentials. Pop these in your bag and you’ll be well on your way to a virtuous vacay!
The best way to start a holiday? Arriving refreshed and well rested. And that’s not going to happen if you can’t sleep on the plane/ train/ bus/ family car trip. Especially if it’s long haul. Pack some noise cancelling headphones and nap your heart out.
If you’re taking a city break, you’ll probably be clocking up many miles each day with sight seeing. But if you’re lounging in a hammock and sipping pina coladas, your fitness levels can quickly slide!
This is where a good ol’ jump rope comes in. It’s just about the lightest, most portable piece of fitness equipment there is, gives a heart-pumping, calorie-torching workout, and you can use it anywhere. In your Airbnb, on the beach, in the hotel gym… You get the picture.
Before your midday cocktail, start the day off right with some guilt-free herbal tea. Much saintlier than your creamy latte, SkinnyMint Morning Boost is packed with energising natural ingredients, including guarana and yerba matte. With a yummy fruit taste, its healthy caffeine hit will provide the perfect boost for your day’s activities.
Sipping on the Night Cleanse blend every second night will help you nod off (thanks peppermint), and kickstart your body’s cleansing process with senna leaves and psyllium husk. It’ll also help you debloat, so you’ll look better on the beach. #winning
(You’ll get both teas in the SkinnyMint 28 Day Ultimate Teatox. And yes! You can – and should – totally teatox on holidays!)
No matter if you’re in the sand, snow, or cement jungle, daily sunscreen application is a must for healthy and protected skin. Choose a broad spectrum, high level sunscreen that protects from both burning UVB rays, and ageing UVA rays. Take a little care now, and future you will thank you!
Want to burn some of those excess holiday calories and boost your metabolism at the same time? Then make sure you pack your SkinnyMint Super Fat Burning Gummies! Taken in the morning, these yummy espresso flavor Power Up Gummies give an energy boost, and the pineapple flavor Hunger Buster Gummy helps beat afternoon cravings.
The Gummies’ power ingredients, green coffee bean and garcinia cambogia, have been shown in multiple studies to aid weight loss and fat loss, increase metabolism, and reduce fat absorption! So, get snacking.
