Multitasking Skincare Picks for Travel
As much as we’d like for our favorite TSA officers to be super on board with the 5 serums, 3 face mists and 2 face oils we wish we could bring in our carry-on, the truth is, we probably wouldn’t have a lot of space left for the other stuff we need to pack for a trip. Like, clothes maybe? Don’t fret – the key is finding the right products that do more, so we don’t have to bring more. Beat the skincare separation anxiety with these amazing multi-taskers that will get you ready for your next departure!
These 10-cloth packs are the perfect size to bring along for your travels or keep in your handbag. They are drenched in the brand’s nourishing and mineral-rich Spa Water, and are perfect to take your make up off on the plane or ahead of your nighttime routine, tone and rehydrate the skin after cleansing, or wiping your hands if you’re putting on skincare or makeup on-the-go.
With citrus oils, honey extract and ceramides, this has become a hydrating essential that’s perfect for travel! It absorbs and rehydrates instantly, with a gel-like formula that melts into the skin like a serum. My combination-to-oily skin drinks this up and feels healthier, rehydrated and extra radiant when I pat this on after cleansing. Use it instead of a serum or as a moisturizer, or leave it on as a sleeping mask to wake up with extra nourished and radiant skin.
This super soft cream doubles as an excellent makeup primer, with skin firming and smoothing soy proteins to boot. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids to repair your skin’s moisture barrier, this moisturizer rehydrates, nourishes and seals the skin, leaving behind the ideal makeup canvas. Foundation easily glides and blends onto the skin thanks to the smooth and silky finish of this cult-status moisturizer.
Heal dry or chapped skin, melt stubborn eye makeup away, dab onto a spoolie brush to tame brows or put flyaway baby hair back in its place – you never know when you’ll be needing a good multi-tasking balm, so why travel without it? This newly reformulated balm is one of the most versatile products you’ll want in your bag. Press a tiny amount to the tops of your cheese and high points of the face for a dewy highlight, or add a layer of it over stressed, dehydrated skin and see this amazing formula with CoQ10, shea butter and Vitamin E plump and strengthen your skin over night.
Anti-aging hydration, excellent sun protection and beautiful, even coverage with a radiant finish – all in one! This is one of the hardest working products I own, with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Seabuckthorn to heal, moisturize and even out skin texture and tone, plus an excellent UVA/UVB protective factor and antioxidants to fend off free radicals. If that weren’t enough, it blends seamlessly with no casting or streaks, feels breathable, and yet gives an excellent amount of coverage that sits beautifully under cream or powder products. Make this your very best travel friend!
La Mer – The Renewal Oil
A beautiful and indulgent face oil infused with LaMer’s Miracle Broth, this is an anti-aging, collagen-and-glow-boosting delight that softens fine lines, and nourishes and heals the skin to reveal maximum radiance. The scent is wonderfully relaxing and I personally fall into a bit of a trance when I’m patting this on! Apply after cleansing to moisturize, or at the end of your routine to seal all the good stuff in. If you have a little more time, apply a little more generously and use it to give yourself a facial massage, and no matter what, always use the excess to rehydrate and soften your cuticles and ends of your hair, so not a bit of this magic oil goes to waste!
