How I Travel With Sakara
For Jazmin Alvarez, Founder + Chief Curator of clean beauty and wellness e-shop Pretty Well Beauty, a vacation packing list is crucial for feeling prepared and able to truly unwind. This summer, she swapped the sweltering heat of Manhattan for the Dominican Republic’s ocean breeze. Here’s what she packed, as told to Team Sakara.
Ever since my baggage was lost several years ago, I never check my bags (I’m still not over it). As a result, I’ve become pretty good at packing everything I need in a carry-on and a large tote, covering trips up to 10 days long.
Without a list I will for sure forget something. My packing style is very hierarchical—prioritizing the MOST important categories (beauty, wellness, clothing), and fitting in the rest (accessories, iPad, etc.) if there is space in my luggage. Thankfully, my trip required zero bulky clothing, allowing me to amp up my beauty and wellness product packing. Below, a look in my bags:
I always buy hair products upon arrival because I can’t bring full sizes in my carry-on, and can’t be bothered with putting them into travel containers. (They never hold enough product for all my hair anyway!)
Incorporating Sakara goodies helps me a lot when I'm traveling or running around. My personal go-to? Sakara Protein Super Bars. They taste indulgent without being so, and they’re an easy way to stay on track when I'm outside of my element and normal routine.
If I’m going somewhere hot and tropical, like the Dominican Republic, I pack clothing that can be mixed and matched and isn't too precious. I honestly don't even want to feel the touch of clothing on my body, so I bring things that are super light and airy.
