Traveling is a wonderful chance to see the world, get great photos and feed that sense of adventure within you, but that wrench it throws in your routine can quickly go from carefree to stressful if your beauty routine takes a turn for the worst. The last thing you want when you’re traveling is breakouts, dry skin, or to be anything but glowing. These great skincare products are simple, compact and travel-friendly to help you take flight without any stress on your skin or your luggage.
1. Ursa Major
Ursa Major boasts in their skincare’s healthy, natural way of making your skin glow. Being a “robust, natural alternative to the bland, toxin-laden products that pervade today’s marketplace”, being natural and effective is their jam. Not only are these products guilt-free but they are great for travel because they have products that come in small sizes.
2. Facial spray
Long plane and car rides can really do a number on your skin. Drying it out and causing it to become stale or flaky is never fun, so bringing a compact facial mist that also tones your skin is a must. Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a best-selling toning mist that is travel-friendly in size and will quench dry, thirsty skin along your journey. Another great spray for keeping your skin bright and hydrated is a rose mist. It smells wonderful, too, and will put you at ease with its aromatherapeutic effects.
3. A natural chapstick
Dry, cracked lips are a given when traveling. There is so much change in air and altitude and keeping your pout perky and not parched requires some attention when traveling. Keep a stick of chapstick in your carry on, pocket, and makeup bag so there is always one when you need it. Reach for a chapstick that is natural, based with shea-butter, beeswax, or coconut oil instead of petroleum. These ingredients will keep your lips silky smooth and buttery for a long time and not need a constant re-coating.
4. Facial wipes
When you travel, your skin can get filthy without you even having to move. You are exposed to more germs in the air than you realize and your face may touch the headrest, or even your hands more than you realize. Keeping wipes on hand even if you don’t see any dirt, it is a good idea to pull out a wipe and give your face a fresh clean swipe. When you travel you don’t always have the time to do a full sudsy cleanse, that’s where these facial wipes come in handy. Plus, they lay flat and fit neatly into any carry on or makeup bag.
