Jennifer Aniston recently took a much-needed vacation, and after returning to the grind of everyday life, she’s longing for the past. In reminiscing, the Morning Show star shared a round-up of photos from her recent tropical trip on Instagram, and to no one’s surprise, she has the effortless beachy swimsuit vibe down to a science. Making waves in a mismatched bikini and wearing a sun hat for protection, she is vacation goals.
“Take us back 🙏🏼,” she captioned the gallery. In one shot, she walks the beach with friends (who appear to be Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda), in another, she poses for a selfie while suntanning, and in another, she’s in full vacation mode: reclined in a lounge chair, bikini-clad, with a sun hat draped over her face. Fans and followers flocked to the comments section to praise her perfect beach waves, glowing skin, and carefree essence.
“It’s the beachy hair for me! ❤️❤️❤️❤️” one person commented. “🔥🔥🔥 you deserve rest my friend,” another added. “I love beachy Jen 😍🔥,” someone else wrote.
There’s no doubt that Aniston had her go-to products from LolaVie (her haircare brand) in tow to refresh her waves while relaxing. And something tells us that ocean water, her Perfecting Leave-In, and her Glossing Detangler are the perfect trio.
In a May interview with British Vogue, Aniston divulged her number one hair tip, which is to protect it at all costs—from the heat in the salon chair and from damaging UV rays on vacation. “The biggest thing I’ve learned over the years from my stylists is to protect! We put our hair through so much damage–dyeing your hair, straighteners, curling irons, everything over time has an effect,” she said. “That’s why it’s essential to use products that protect every step of the way.”
Both of her LolaVie products act as protectants, sealing the cuticles to prevent damage and dryness. Hairstylist and makeup artist Nikki Goddard previously told Prevention that heat protectants also “include nourishing components that moisturize and restore hair.” She recommends products that are oil-based sprays, made of herbal extracts, or ones that are silicone-based.
