Going away is no excuse to let yourself go. I’m not talking about indulging at the 24-hour desert buffet — that I’m all for — what I’m referring to is L.D.O.V.S., otherwise known as Last Day of Vacation Syndrome. You know what I’m talking about. On day one your pictures reflect a recently manicured, root-free traveling champion, but day 10 depicts a world-weary traveler with chipped polish and a few insubordinate gray hairs insisting on their day in the sun.
Don’t give it to them. Put them back in their place with ColorMark ($19.95), a great temporary instant hair color that won’t flake off even after brushing. Simply apply the drip-free formula to spots where your gray is showing and voilà! You have salon fresh hair until you're ready to shampoo. The tube is small enough to throw in a purse and it comes in 12 shades, too.
Do not even get me started on chipped polish. There’s no better way to ruin the sexy effect of strappy sandals, than by exposing a row of tore up toes. With the new Vinyl Deborah Lippmann nail polishes ($8.50 each), there’s really no excuse (not that there ever was a good one), for a pitiful looking pedicure. The line is full of of fun, flirty colors and the super mini bottle is perfect for traveling. Do yourself a favor and look as good on day 10 as you did on day one.
