Your Guide to Travel Skincare: Tips for Healthy, Glowing Skin On-the-Go

Traveling is a thrilling adventure that allows us to explore new destinations, cultures, and experiences. However, the excitement of travel can sometimes take a toll on our skin, leaving it dry, dull, or prone to breakouts. Whether you're embarking on a weekend getaway or a long-haul journey, it's essential to prioritise skincare to keep your complexion radiant and healthy throughout your travels. In this blog, we'll share essential tips and product recommendations to help you maintain glowing skin on-the-go.

  1. Keep it Simple: When packing for your trip, it's tempting to bring along your entire skincare arsenal. However, lugging around multiple products can be cumbersome and impractical. Instead, streamline your routine by focusing on the essentials: a gentle cleanser, hydrating moisturiser, sunscreen, and any targeted treatments for specific concerns like acne or hyperpigmentation. 

  2. Opt for Travel-Friendly Packaging: To save space in your luggage and avoid spills or leaks, opt for travel-sized versions of your favourite skincare products or transfer them into travel-friendly containers. We offer mini-sized versions of our products, making it easy to pack everything you need without sacrificing precious suitcase space. Shop travel sizes 

  3. Prioritise Hydration: Air travel, changes in climate, and exposure to harsh environmental factors can dehydrate the skin, leading to dryness, flakiness, or dullness. Combat these effects by prioritising hydration in your skincare routine. Pack a hydrating facial mist to refresh and replenish your skin throughout the day, and don't forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out. Our Antioxidant Peptide Mist is another multi-tasker, as it can be used as a toner, make-up primer, extra hydration boost during the day or to cool down sun-kissed skin or even to refresh your hair. Apply Argan Skin Renew Moisturiser before your flight as it's clinically proven to increase skin hydration by 25% for a full 24 hours - perfect to apply before any long-haul flight!  

  4. Protect Against Sun Damage: Sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin, causing premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. Make sunscreen an essential part of your travel skincare routine, and reapply it regularly, especially if you'll be spending time outdoors. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen and choose a lightweight, non-comedogenic formula that won't clog pores or feel greasy on the skin. Our Skin Protecting Daily Moisturiser SPF25 is a natural mineral non nano sun filter zinc oxide which delivers broad spectrum protection against damaging UVA/UVB rays.  It also firms the skin and protects against daily environmental pollution and is reef safe and suitable for sensitive skin.  

  5. Practice Gentle Cleansing: Traveling can expose your skin to dirt, pollution, and other impurities, so it's essential to cleanse your skin thoroughly morning and night. Opt for a gentle cleanser that effectively removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin's natural oils. Our Kale 3D Cleanse deeply cleanses and refreshes your skin while providing essential protection against pollution, leaving you with a radiant, healthy complexion. What's more, its available in a travel-friendly 30ml size. 

  6. Pack Multi-Tasking Products: Save space in your suitcase by packing multi-tasking skincare products that can address multiple concerns at once. Our all-in-one beauty balm Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm is the perfect multi-tasker. Whether you're cleansing, exfoliating, masking, or moisturising, this multitasker does it all, leaving your skin looking and feeling its best and saving you space in your suitcase! 

  7. Don't Forget About Self-Care: Traveling can be stressful, so don't forget to take time for self-care amidst your adventures. Treat yourself to a relaxing face mask or indulge in a mini spa treatment in your hotel room to rejuvenate your skin and unwind after a long day of exploring. Take a 5ml sachet of our Probiotic Multi-Mineral Repair Mask to unwind after a long journey, particularly if you're suffering from jet lag, this is a beautiful overnight mask unfused with lavender to help you drift off to a restful nights sleep.
