Which travel skincare essentials do you need to keep your skin looking flawless while on the go? We list nine below, plus some more travel tips.
How to Look and Feel Flawless While Travelling
Step 1: Wash Your Face Twice a Day
Keep your face fresh and clean by washing it twice daily. It is easy to miss your beauty routine when you are traveling, but cleansing your face is the most crucial step in maintaining healthy and glowing skin.
Try the Clarifying Gel Cleanser with Purple Tea. This gentle facial cleanser may help remove makeup and impurities in one step with a gel formula that doesn’t over-dry skin.
No need to transfer it to a smaller bottle! You can carry up to 2-0z bottles on the plane, and this cleanser is only 1.69 fluid ounces.
Wet your face with water and use your fingertips to apply a pea size amount of facial cleanser. Rinse off the soap and pat the skin dry.
Step 2: Apply a Moisturizer After Cleansing
No matter what your age, gender, race, or skin type, the proper use of a moisturizer is essential in keeping your skin hydrated and nourished. A moisturizing cream can help lock in moisture, which aids in giving you that supple skin.
Put on a suitable moisturizer after cleansing. Put a small amount on your fingertips and apply in small circular motions to give your face a gentle massage.
Try the Hydrating Day Cream with Purple Tea. The antioxidants of Purple Tea Extract paired with Swiss Alpine Rose Stem Cells makes this moisturizing cream ideal for everyday use.
Step 3: Use a Hydrating Mask
The right face mask can help hydrate skin and remove excess oils and impurities. Unlike other skincare essentials, face masks don’t have to be used every day.
Face masks are travel skincare essentials you can easily stash in your kit because they come in sheets, thin packs, or travel size jars. Check out Purple Tea Nourishing Face Mask which helps hydrate, nourish, and smooth out the skin.
If you are using a sheet mask, open the pack and gently place the sheet on your face for about 20 minutes. Give your face a gentle massage after.
What’s good about the kind is that you can apply it even while on the plane!
If you are using a clay mask, apply the mask all over your face in a thin layer and leave it on for around 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse with slightly warm water afterward.
Step 4: Give Your Face a Gentle Massage
Give your face a gentle massage by applying small circular motions on your forehead, cheekbones, and working down to your jawline using your fingers.
Facial massage can appease facial tension and strain which can prevent or reduce wrinkles. It can act as a natural facelift.
Massaging the skin also increases the blood circulation and creates a flawless complexion.
Step 5: Wear Sunscreen When Heading Out
One of the most practical ways to keep your skin fresh and hydrated is to stay out of the sun. If you are traveling to someplace sunny, always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen and reapply every 2 to 3 hours.
Don’t forget to wear protective gear and clothes!
Step 6: Smear Pink Tint on Your Cheeks
Give your cheeks a tinge of color by applying pink tint. This will present a natural glow and keep you from looking jetlagged.
Make sure you only use products with natural or organic formulations to keep your skin from the potential damage that may be caused by lab chemicals. You can try making your own, too!
Apply with a small dot on your cheeks and smear gently in small circular strokes. A little goes a long way.
Step 7: Apply Lip Balm
Look fresh and presentable with a touch of colored lip balm on your lips. A tinted lip balm is your best bet for lip color and moisture.
Again, stick with natural formulations. Like the tint, lip balms are also an excellent travel skincare accessory because they’re packed in small containers.
Step 8: Spray Hydrating Facial Mist
Facial mists help restore your skin’s moisture after it’s been exposed to the drying heat or cold when you travel. They help freshen up your look and set your makeup, too!
Carry up to 2 oz in a small spray bottle. Or, you can purchase travel-size facial mists products.
Step 9: Always Hydrate with Water
Traveling can be exhausting and dehydrating. Stay well-hydrated.
You can also bring an empty, refillable water bottle with you when you are traveling. Fill it up with water where security allows (if you’re at the airport) and before heading out of your accommodation.
Bonus Travel Skincare Tips:
- Prepare everything you need 1 to 2 days before you travel. Make use of travel-size containers when needed so you don’t have to carry large glass bottles of your skincare products.
- Get enough rest the night before you travel. A good rest helps you keep looking your best.
- Choose comfortable outfits to bring along in your travel. Do not wear clothes that are too tight to give your pores some space for breathing.
- Do take vitamins or supplements to keep your immunity functioning at its best.
You may have noticed that you need to carry gel or liquid skincare items when you travel. To ensure you follow strict airport security rules, place them inside a ziplock bag.
Make sure you seal them tightly as well to avoid spillage.
