Looking for the best travel size skincare products that'll give you glowing skin when you travel?
If you're anything like me, you love to travel but hate packing. It's always a hassle, and I never seem to have enough space for everything I need. That's why I love travel-sized skincare products! They take up minimal space in my luggage, but they still allow me to take care of my skin while I'm on the go. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best travel-sized skincare products on the market today. We'll also provide tips on how to pack them efficiently.
Points to consider when choosing skin care products that are travel sized
Just because you're on the go doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your skin care routine. Choose products that you can easily carry in your handbag or carry-on bag. They're also the kind of beauty products that won't cause any problems at airport security or leak or make a mess in your bag. It's also important to have access to your skincare since travel conditions can make your skin excessively dry or dehydrated.
Having your skincare products at hand will ensure that you arrive with fresh and soft skin, instead of tired and dull skin. So, if you're looking for ways to travel lighter, consider investing in some travel-friendly skincare products. It's important to consider if your current skincare is packaged so you can just add it to your overnight bag, or if you need to repackage it to take it with you.
Create a travel skin care routine for your skin type
When packing for a trip, there are many factors to consider. Will the weather be hot or cold? What kinds of activities will you be doing? Do you have sensitive skin? With all of these factors in mind, here are four travel-friendly product suggestions that can make your next trip or vacation a little easier.
Can your travel moisturizer perform the function of a serum, eye cream, neck cream, and hydrating moisturizer? Does it contain ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid to prevent skin dryness and soothe the skin during the flight? Our Lindre Serum-in-Gel moisturizer works as a serum, eye gel, and moisturizer and is perfect for air travel.
Since it is cooling and oil-free it works really well at hydrating the face and neck and soothing the under-eye area, which tends to get puffy due to water retention from flights. Lindre is also wonderful for those prone to oily skin and breakouts from the stress of traveling. The oil-free hydration gives is great at moisturizing the skin without the pore-clogging butters and waxes found in traditional creams.
A good quality face oil, like our fragrance-free Stell face oil, can be used for giving a glow to your face and neck, to soften and soothe your lips, as a makeup remover, for dry areas of your body, and for the dry ends of your hair. The oil can also be used to soothe sunburn or insect bites on your skin.
During your flight, you can use a drop or two of this oil on the driest parts of your face. This will ensure that you arrive with soft and glowing skin instead of dry and flaky skin. You can also use it to tame any flyaways if your hair tends to get dry from flights.
Try a solid cleansing bar for convenience or cleansing powder grains that can also be used as a face mask to deal with any breakouts or travel-related acne.
Deodorant is usually not a multitasking product but make sure you can find a travel size deodorant to take with you. Same for your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Either find travel size versions or decant them into smaller containers to take with you.
Airless packaging is becoming increasingly popular in the beauty industry, and for good reason. This type of packaging prevents product waste and can keep liquids and creams fresh for longer. Airless containers are less likely to get contaminated in less sanitary environments (read: icky public restrooms). Plus, they're often more compact than traditional packaging, making them perfect for travel. They will also not let your skincare products spill out and make a mess.
Bottles that don't leak
As mentioned earlier, a good quality face oil is a great addition to your travel bag since it works in so many different ways. However, you need to find a bottle that does not leak oil. Some droppers start to leak due to the increase in cabin pressure pushing the oil out of the top.
Our Fragrance-free, multitasking Stell oil is specially designed to be leak-proof even in high-pressure conditions. When you run out of this face oil, wash and save the bottle! You can use it to store and carry your other skincare essentials without worrying about leaks.
Good quality sunscreen and bug spray
The full-size versions of these products can go in your check-in suitcase or you can find mini versions. Depending on where you are traveling you might need bug spray. Don't make the mistake of assuming that you will find quality sunblock or insect repellant at your destination, especially if you plan on traveling internationally.
Travel size sunscreen might not last the whole trip since you will be using it on your face and body. Take enough to make sure it lasts your whole trip. It's best to go with sunblock made for sensitive skin, that you need to wrap in plastic to prevent leaks in your suitcase or bag.
How to take care of your skincare products when you travel
Now that we have addressed which skincare products are best for travel, it's also important to mention how to take care of these products so that they function well on your skin regardless of the external environment you find yourself in.
Although skincare products are well tested and can survive most environments, taking care of where you place them can help ensure that they are as potent as when you first started to use them.
Protect your travel size skincare products
It's best to carry your travel-size products in your carry-on luggage to prevent exposure to extremes of cold and heat in the baggage hold. Once you are at your destination, keep your skincare in the coolest place you can find instead of a hot and humid bathroom.
Avoid placing your sunblock and other skincare items in direct sunlight or heat. Also, avoid dusty environments.
Overall, these are the best travel-sized skincare products to keep your skin healthy and happy while you're on the go! Just remember to take care of them and keep them in a cool, dry place. Your skin will thank you for it! Happy travels!
