Skincare SOS for Travelers: Save Your Face from Travel Mayhem with These Must-Haves!

Traveling can take quite a toll on your complexion. There’s something about getting on a plane or taking a road trip that doesn’t sit well with our skin. It could be the dry, recycled air in the aircraft cabin, the change in climate at the destination, the stress of travel itself, or all of the above. If you’re like us, your face has experienced travel shock: looking tired, dull and dehydrated with pesky acne flare-ups and breakouts. Of course, we all want to pack as lightly and efficiently as possible, but we always regret leaving some of our face-saving must-haves back home on the bathroom shelf. So here’s what to pack to keep your skin looking clean, glowing and fresh no matter where the road takes you this season!


Stay Clean & Healthy with Our Magic Mist


Hopping on a plane or taking a road trip to visit family for the holidays can wreak havoc on our precious skin we have been taking such good care of all year! It’s almost impossible not to pick up germs and bacteria that make us break out and even sick. Be Clean – Detoxifying Toner comes to the rescue. This mega multitasker boasts antibacterial properties that nip breakouts in the bud, while its immune-boosting formula helps to keep us healthy. We also like to spray this toner onto our face mask and inside our throat to kill cooties.



Pack an Immune-Boosting Elixir 


Let’s talk about climate change. Not on a global change, but the different weather conditions (and even different water levels, i.e., harder or softer) at your destination. It’s a little shock to the skin, especially after a long flight. Be Clean – Detoxifying Elixir soothes dryness, redness, and itchiness and keeps your skin so clear and clean. It’s a fantastic immune booster that you can also dab around your nostrils if you feel allergies, respiratory issues, or something sinus-y coming on.



Keep Your Hydrated Glow and Ease Anxiety


For sensitive skin that reacts to travel tension, Be Divine – Age Defying Toner provides substantial skin support. It is deeply hydrating and locks in moisture while relieving anxiety and fatigue with its delicious aromatherapeutic powers! This magical toner is suitable for all skin types and ages and will give you that radiant glow when you’re ready to face your in-laws!



Take Off Travel Stress with a Masque


Do bring a masque for its skin-saving super-power! Either opt for Just Add Sugar Cacao Herb Infused Masque, our mini facial in a jar that will completely rejuvenate your face, or Magic Matcha Green Tea Superfood Masque, a veritable superfood smoothie for your skin! Our Magic Matcha and Just Add Sugar Masques come in 2-oz glass containers, which might be a bit heavy for a carry-on. So we highly recommend you transfer just enough for one or two uses to take off all the disgusting travel stress that has accumulated en route and give your skin the healing it needs.



Cover Up with Tinted Sunscreen for an Impeccable Finish


Looking a little fatigued and dull? We love wearing a tinted moisturizer with ingredients that do triple duty as skincare, sunscreen, and make-up. Epicuren Defend & Balance Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 provides even coverage by auto-adjusting to your skin tone and protecting you with ingredients including green tea extract, vitamin C, and kukui nut oil. Our other favorite go-to is Suntegrity Impeccable Skin, Broad Spectrum SPF 30 for a gorgeous smoothing effect. It comes in six shades and acts like an environmental shield to protect you from allergens and pollutants. Both feature hyaluronic acid, the perfect secret weapon in your travel kit to trap moisture!



Save Your Kisser from Dehydration and Chapping


Don’t forget about your pucker! We are big fans of lip balm with SPF. Epicuren Anti-Aging Lip Balm SPF 15 prevents dry, chapped lips and is great if you prefer your balm to be a bit thicker and more protective. It’s an occlusive, featuring peptides. We find that when we apply a thicker lip balm, we are not as tempted to lick it off. For a lighter, more breathable alternative, we love Jane Iredale LipDrink Lip Balm SPF 15. It provides an antioxidant-rich protective shield and is available in sheer, plus six darling colors that perk up a tired face in a cinch! Besides, it has a delicious and addictive lemon flavor!



Fight Jetlag and Pre-Travel Jitters with Our LED Light Bed


Do you feel stressed before you even take off We feel your pain! There’s just so much to do, travel planning, finding someone to take care of pets and house plants, leaving the office when you can’t really afford to be gone, deciding what to pack, and making sure you have all your documents... The list of to-dos is endless! To make sure your trip or vacation is about gain rather than pain, we recommend a 20-minute session in our brand-new LED Light Therapy Bed. It gives you that extra immune boost, provides deep cellular repair, delivers complete rejuvenation from face to toe, and is formidable for fighting jet lag! Schedule a session right before or after your journey, you’ll be sure to look and feel your best!


Bon voyage!
