Summer is here and we’re all consumed with daydreams of jetting off for the weekend, soaking up the sun on some secluded island, and sipping on a refreshing drink by the seaside. OK, so maybe we’ll just be visiting the closest beach via road trip and not a private island, but either way we’re planning to take our beloved beauty products and skin care along. Travelling can do a number on the skin. From the dry air in plane cabins, to the stress of delays, to increased exposure to foreign elements, a trip away from home is not the time to skimp on your skin care routine. While picking up certain forgotten toiletries from the hotel gift shop is always an option, experimenting with hotel-brand facial soap bars is a NO GO.
On the road, it is so important to give your skin some extra TLC. That is why packing a good travel-sized skin care kit or mini beauty products that satisfy your skin’s needs are crucial. For example, those with sensitive skin should try and stay away from cosmetics with any artificial ingredients, regardless of how high-end the packaging may seem. The simpler the formula, the better ladies. On the other hand, if your skin tends to be dry and you plan on soaking up a lot of Vitamin D, chances are it might get even drier post-trip, so make sure to hydrate it well with a good moisturizer and an overnight treatment. Overall, hydration is just key for the skin when travelling. Below, find the best mini beauty products and travel-friendly skin care kits to accompany you on your next vacay:
