There is no doubt that travel is amazing for the mind, body and soul, but there is one thing it may not be awesome for…your skin. Long days, red eye flights, different time zones and simply being busy while on the go can definitely take its toll. Don’t let traveling upset your skincare routine by making sure you bring along some helpful travel beauty essentials.
Between getting to and from your destination, the weather and even food changes, skin can experience breakouts, dryness, oily areas, sunburn and more. There are some best travel beauty essentials I want to share so your vacation doesn’t interfere with your skin.

How do you travel with beauty products?
If you carry on when traveling, like I do, I recommend stocking up on multi-tasking travel beauty essentials and toiletries.
One great tip, to cut down on the amount of skincare products you bring, is to add a few drops of your favorite serum to your moisturizer. That way you can leave the serum at home, but still reap the benefits of it.
Per TSA rules each passenger is limited to one quart sized bag of liquids, gels and aerosols, that can’t be more than 3.4 ounces.
What really helps me streamline the packing process is I always keep my best travel essentials and a toiletry bag ready to go.
After each trip I re-fill and replenish my favorite beauty products, which limits forgetting to pack important skincare and makeup items.
What should I pack in my travel makeup bag?
Put the products you regularly use — face wash, moisturizer, lip balm, sunscreen, concealer and mascara — in a reusable bag for your carry on. Then you won’t have to stress over keeping up with your beauty and skincare routine when you are away from home.

How do I prepare my skin for a long flight?
You might not realize this, but travel can be very dehydrating and also disruptive to the skin. To prepare your skin for a long flight, a cruise, a road trip or other types of travel, first make sure you are drinking lots of water.
Remove makeup and kick off your flight with a freshly scrubbed, toned and moisturized face. Makeup removing wipes are perfect for cleaning your face on the go.
Put lotion on your hands and cuticles to keep them from drying out. Use a mini eye roller, under eye cream and a sleep mask, so even if you don’t get any sleep on the plane, you can at least look like you did.
Prepping your skin before arriving at your destination will help it experience less stress.
