Already planning that needed beach trip? Avoid dealing with excess baggage by editing down your beauty kit with these travel skincare that are an absolute must.
As beaches and top vacation spots are opening up for travel, many are packing up and dusting off their luggages. Traveling however is quite different in the new normal with a rigorous process to go over to travel safely. With the many papers and documents to prioritize first, you need to travel light in other areas to have a fuss-free trip. For travel skincare for your face, body, and hair, here’s how:
For The Face: Multi-Tasker Products
You can edit down your travel skincare kit by packing those that provide two or more services.
SON & PARK Beauty Water: A micellar water can do wonders because of its many uses. A holy grail product in and outside of K-beauty, this beauty water is a cleanser and toner in one made with hazel water and lavender water. It can be used in the morning to prep, midday to refresh, and at night to cleanse the skin from makeup, dirt, and residue.
SHISEIDO White Lucent Overnight Cream & Mask: When on vacation especially to a beach, your skin can be stripped of its moisture from all the swimming and heat you go through. This rich and comforting moisturizer does double the duty. A normal moisturizer on most nights but when applied generously it can be an intensive brightening sleeping mask.
HAPPY SKIN Rescue Me Sun Gel Primer: If you haven’t heard enough of yet, sunscreen is always a must. Sunscreen protects you from unwanted dark spots, UVB, and UVA rays that can cause skin cancer. That’s why makeup with SPF are products you can’t pass up on, such as this tinted sunscreen-primer duo that’s a real holiday gem. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides, and plant-based Medicago Sativa Extract, this sun gel offers light coverage, with sun protection and skin-perfecting benefits that feel nothing but like a hydrating moisturizer. Not only that, but it also has anti-blue light technology so you’re also protected from the screen damage coming from your phones.
Body: Clean As You Go
AESOP Petitgrain Reviving Body Gel: As much as you’re protecting your face from the vacation dry-out, your body needs the same care as well. Don’t rely on generic hotel soaps that sometimes we can admit don’t do much of cleansing or anything really. Avoid flaking dry skin and relax after a day under the sun with a fragrant body gel that deeply moisturizes the skin. Aesop’s after-sun hydrator is enhanced with Aloe Vera and Panthenol to soften and soothe, while extracts of Grapefruit and Lemon make for a pampered shower routine that cools, balances, and refreshes the skin.
ANESSA Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel: Just in case, you forgot our first sunscreen reminder earlier, pack one for your body as well. Preferably one such as this one that’s sweat, rubbing, and water-resistant so you won’t have to keep reapplying.
HAPPY SKIN Clean Slate Moisturizing Hand Purifying Spray: This sanitizing hand spray is what your rubbing alcohol would smell like if it went on vacation. A new normal essential, keep sanitized from the airport to the hotel and everywhere you go basically with this hand sanitizing spray that doesn’t give your crusty palms and fingers. It smells insanely amazing and gives that nourishing and hygienic boost with Aloe Vera and Glycerin, Lavender Extract, and Glycerin.
Hair: Freshly Tousled Hair
KERASTASE Discipline Oleo Relax Anti-Frizz Oil Serum: You know that state your hair gets after getting out of a pool or the ocean and you just know the frizz and split ends are coming? Well, you can avoid that with good hair oil. Apply generously after showers, this hair oil moistures with shorea butter and coconut oil with a heat-protectant featuring 450°F thermo-protection. It gives you that IG-worthy beach hair that looks and feels fresh.
