Top 5 Skincare Products To Use While Traveling

Nailing down your travel-friendly skincare routine isn’t an easy feat. Beyond thinking about the logistics of packing everything you need, you also need to consider how your skin may be affected by travel, and what you can do to be as prepared as possible. In order to help you streamline the process of creating your perfect travel grooming regime, we’re breaking down the top 5 skincare products you’ll want to bring along with you on your adventures. 

How Traveling Affects Your Skin

When it comes to travel’s effects on skin health, there are a lot of different factors that come into play. First, there is the change in environment. If you live in a humid area but are traveling to the desert, your skin will likely feel tight and dry the moment you step off the plane. Similarly, if you’re going to a much hotter and sunnier place than what you’re used to, you may notice your skin getting burned more easily. 

There is also travel-related stress. While we all go on vacation to relax, stress often still finds a way to creep in. Stress can cause the skin to be more reactive and sensitive, and for some, can also lead to breakouts. 

If you’re traveling by plane, air travel can also have a major impact on your complexion. Plane cabins have low humidity, which can lead to dehydration. The skin may also produce more oil to compensate for the lack of humidity. This can cause the skin to feel greasier, and may also lead to blemishes. 

In short, when you travel, your skin is being exposed to elements and changes in routine that it isn’t used to. With that in mind, it’s important to stick to a routine that will help counteract the effects of travel to keep your complexion as happy and healthy as possible. 

Now, let’s discuss the top 5 products you’ll want to take with you as you travel. 

1. Facial Wipes

Facial wipes are a must when traveling, particularly when you’re on a long-haul flight or otherwise don’t have access to water to cleanse your face with a traditional cleanser. A good wipe will be able to clear away excess oil, dirt, and debris, and will help prepare your skin for the next steps in your routine.  

2. Gentle Facial Cleansers

For those times when you are able to properly wash your face, we recommend bringing along a gentle cleanser. Your skin will likely feel somewhat dehydrated, reactive, and generally off-balance when you’re traveling. With this in mind, you won’t want to use a harsher face wash that might irritate or dry out the skin. Instead, reach for a mild daily cleanser that will properly refresh your skin without disrupting its balance.

3. Don't Forget Your Facial Serums

A high-quality serum (or serums!) is one of your best tools for restoring your skin and counteracting the negative effects of travel. Our gentle, super hydrating  Hyaluronic Pure Boost Serum will fight travel-induced dehydration, helping you maintain a soft and supple complexion. We also recommend using an antioxidant-powered serum (like the  CoQ10 Boost Serum) to keep your skin shielded against the damaging free radicals your skin may be exposed to on your adventures. 

4. SPF

Wearing sunscreen daily is always essential, but it’s especially important as you travel. This is particularly true for those spending lots of time outdoors during their vacation, as well as those that are traveling via plane (since you’re that much more prone to sunburns and damage when you’re 36,000 feet up in the air!). 

5. Moisturizer

Last but not least, be sure you bring your moisturizer along with you. It will help keep your skin balanced and healthy, and can help reduce any dryness you may experience as your skin is exposed to a different climate.
