Best Skincare for Travel

While travel is one of the greatest experiences, it can wreak havoc on your skin! Travel often leads to dehydrated skin from the dry airplane air, disturbed skin balance due to climate changes, sun damaged skin due to long periods of sun exposure during adventures and dullness from stress and inadequate sleep.

In this post, we will reveal some of our favourite travel skincare tips. 

Why travel skincare is important

Travelling can wreak havoc on your skin, but with the right skincare regimen featuring natural and active ingredients, you can maintain a healthy glow no matter where your adventures take you. These products offer numerous benefits beyond just hydration and protection.

Nourish dehydrated skin

Long flights can leave your skin parched and dull. Combat this with moisturisers infused with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid or aloe vera. Products like our Mini Hydrating Hydra-Fluid Moisturiser can replenish lost moisture, keeping your skin supple and radiant even at cruising altitude.

Create a barrier against environmental pollution

Airplane cabins are notorious for circulating dry, polluted air. Shield your skin with antioxidant-rich serums such as our Mini Pomegranate Brightening Serum, infused with antioxidant Q10 spheres which helps brighten the skin and assists in anti-inflammatory activity.

Repair sun damage

Even brief exposure to UV rays during layovers can lead to sun damage. Incorporate a potent sunscreen like Skin Shield Sunscreen SPF 30 into your routine to prevent premature aging and repair existing damage, ensuring your skin stays youthful and resilient throughout your travels. 

How to pack skincare for travel

When embarking on travels, maintaining a consistent skincare routine is essential to keep your skin healthy and radiant. Investing in travel-sized skincare products proves to be a wise choice, as they not only save space but also ensure continuity in your skincare regimen.

Opting for essentials with active ingredients, such as moisturisers rich in hyaluronic acid or serums containing vitamin C, helps combat the adverse effects of travel on the skin, like dehydration and dullness. Prioritise multi-functional products to streamline your packing process, like a sunscreen that also hydrates or a cleanser that removes makeup effectively.

Utilize travel-friendly containers to decant larger products if necessary, ensuring compliance with airline regulations and maximising space efficiency. By packing smartly and focusing on skincare essentials, you can safeguard your skin's health and glow while exploring new destinations.
