There’s nothing like ticking off your travel bucket list one gorgeous city or country at a time. However, with the glory and enjoyment that travel brings, is the dehydration danger we put our skin into. But don’t fret—nourished and glowing skin can still be achieved while you’re jumping from one place to another, even when you spend long hours at 35,000 feet.
The secret to maintaining your skin’s radiant beauty and glow isn’t just about taking your skincare routine with you wherever you go. When you’re travelling, more hydration is needed; hence, better performing products should be on those carry-ons. For your travel musts, we’ve done the hard part of finding the best travel skincare items out there so you’d only need to think about looking gorgeous on your Instagram photos.
AKMD Hydrating Peptide Gel ($70)
Hyaluronic acid is known for intense hydration it brings to the skin, and the AKMD Hydrating Peptide Gel has it as its base product.By using this product, you’ll be sure to seal in all the nourishment and moisture you put into your face, even when you’re at a very cold place. It is fragrance-free, oil-free and non-comedogenic, as well.
Peoni L’extrait Face Oil ($125)
Peoni’s L’extrait Face Oil is a high-end oil that’s been tried and tested by different known facialists and celebrities. Just a few drops of this product can soothe your skin and make it look younger. This one can also be added to your BB cream or foundation for a more flawless finish.
Joanna Czech Facial Massager ($189)
Long travels mean you won’t be able to visit your favorite and trusted aesthetician back home. And if you’re afraid and got no time to find a credible clinic or salon for that purpose, you can easily do face massages on your own. By using Joanna Czech Facial Massager not only to relieve your face muscles from stress, but also to reinforce product absorption of your skin. Another trick: let it stay in your hotel’s fridge for a while and enjoy a cold therapy treatment for your face.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 ($33.50)
Another important aspect of skincare while travelling is protection of the skin from the harmful UV rays. And when your face’s skin is already confused by the new environment you’re in, you better make sure that your gorgeous face is well-protected. Use La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen with skincare technology called Cell-Ox Shield to make sure no free radicals will bring permanent damage.
Environ Vita Antioxidant Hydrating Oil Capsules ($88)
Who else can we trust when it comes to skincare but the official facialist of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Georgia Louise, right? She swears by Vita Antioxidant Hydrating Oil Capsules, her absolute travel must to give her a dose of antioxidants and retinol. With this, overflight blemish and dryness won’t have a place in your skin.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Sensitive Makeup Remover Solution ($14.90)
After a long day of gallivanting around, sometimes you’d be too tired to do your complete set of skincare routine to make sure all of your makeup is gone from your face. So for an easy way to make sure you won’t breakout because of makeup residue, use Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O Sensitive Makeup Remover Solution. Just a few swipes of this product on a cotton pad and you’ll have a clear and clean skin.

Another facial oil we’d recommend is from Drunk Elephant called Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil Mini. This facial oil woks wonder in your face, thanks to its antioxidant content that can restore your skin’s youth through intense nourishment, moisturization and rejuvenation.
