#1. Travel Light And Stick To The Basics
One of the most challenging parts of traveling anywhere is packing. It can be a pain to carefully pick and choose what items to stow away with you on your travels while refraining from going overboard.
When it comes to packing your skincare products, it's important to just stick to the basics. Though skincare experimentation can be a fun and intriguing process, now isn't the time for that!
Your skincare goal when traveling should be to keep your complexion as calm, relaxed, and balanced as possible. Traveling can cause plenty of undue stress to your skin, and it's important not to exacerbate that.
For example, the air in planes is often dry and low in oxygen, leaving your skin dehydrated and irritated. Even if you're just embarking on a short road trip, the act of traveling itself often leads to certain levels of physical and mental stress, which shows up on your skin.
So, while you're away from home, it's best to just give your skin the essentials. You probably don't need to pack the clay mask you only use once a month or a specialized serum. Instead, only bring what you use daily.
Be sure to bring all the essentials that your skin needs while keeping the formula simple and light. Weighing your skin down with heavy products full of harsh chemicals won't do your skin any favors!
The Skincare Essentials For Traveling
With JUARA's One-Month Mini Face Ritual, you'll be able to treat your skin to an uplifting and natural beauty routine no matter where you go. This kit comes with the four items that every skincare routine needs, including a gentle wash, facial toner, anti-aging serum, and a hydrating moisturizer.
Plus, each item is travel sized, meaning it'll be easy to stow in your carry-on and bring on the plane!
Each step of this beauty skincare ritual helps nourish and protect your skin in the best ways possible.
Start your day by using our Rice Facial Cleanser, made with skin-softening rice bran and brightening apple extract so that your skin remains both refreshed and healthy.
Next, follow up with our Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner, which is full of powerful yet soothing active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, tamarind seed extract, and triple tea extracts. Pair it with our Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum to deliver your skin a concentrated formula of all the best natural skincare elements.
Lastly, our Sweet Black Tea and Rice Moisturizer is exactly what your skin needs when you're on the go. It's likely that your complexion will get dry and tired as you travel, and you are in desperate need of a reliable moisturizer that will treat your skin right!
#2. Bring Only Travel Sized Skincare Products
Traveling is all sunshine and rainbows until you realize you ran out of space in your suitcase.
Overpacking can be a hassle, but it can be a struggle to know where to cut down. However, one of the best places to start is with your skincare.
You're likely not going to need all 200 mL of your favorite facial wash. Instead, opting for sample- or travel-sized beauty products will ensure you only bring what you actually will use while you're traveling.
For example, start by bringing any extra shampoo or conditioner samples you may have hanging around. That way, you don't need to stress about lugging your full-sized containers on board the plane.
Ensuring Your Products Are Airplane-Ready
The best way to ensure you bring just the right amount of everything is by getting some travel-sized products. For starters, this ensures anything you bring to the airport will pass TSA's liquids rule, and it also guarantees your favorite products will be able to travel safely and soundly.
Keeping Your Skin Hydrated As You Travel
If you need some best-selling body products to keep your skin hydrated, glowing, and healthy as you travel, you're best off with JUARA's Bali Trio Sampler. This trio of luxurious and award-winning products will uplift and energize your skin so that you can truly enjoy your travels.
Keep your skin moisturized and satisfied with our iconic Candlenut Body Creme and our heavenly-scented Tiare Jasmine Body Creme. And to ensure your skin stays radiant and clean, use our popular Radiance Enzyme Scrub!
#3. Try Presoaking Cotton Pads With Your Toner
If you're worried about bringing a few too many products with you when you travel, try this simple trick to cut down.
By presoaking cotton balls or pads in your toner, you can not only save room in your bag, but you'll be able to quickly freshen up as you travel. A full-sized bottle of toner is anything but ideal, and condensing it to just a few cotton pads will help you save room.
Plus, keeping these on hand allows you to freshen your face whenever you need. If your skin is starting to feel dull, drab, and lackluster on the plane, feel free to whip one out.
All you need to do is pack enough for the number of days you'll be gone in a Ziploc bag.
#4. Mix Your Serum In With Your Moisturizer
If you're bringing all eight steps of your skincare routine along with you, you might feel the need to condense what you can.
By mixing some of your favorite serums into your moisturizer, you can not only remove a skincare step from your daily routine, but you can also save space in your bag. It's an effective tip for anyone looking to save time so that they can fill their day with more sightseeing!
Be sure to mix this cocktail up in a travel-sized container so that your full-sized moisturizer stays as-is.
#5. Take Into Account The Climate Of Where You're Going
Traveling can take you nearly anywhere around the globe. Whether your destination is a tropical beach or a snowy mountain top, it's important to bring the products that will keep your skin protected and healthy.
That's because the climate around you has a big effect on your skin. Dry and cold climates can leech the moisture from your skin and leave your complexion dehydrated, while warmer and humid areas might aggravate oily and acne-prone skin.
When Traveling To A Colder Or Drier Climate
If you're heading somewhere colder, be sure to bring rich moisturizers.
JUARA's Candlenut Trio Sampler is a must-have if you need to give your skin some much-needed love, care, and hydration. It comes with a travel-sized Candlenut Body Creme and Candlenut Body Polish, as well as a full-sized Candlenut Bar Soap.
Each of these items will help your skin stay refreshed and glowing no matter how cold the weather gets!
You can also try out slugging if you're traveling somewhere colder so that you can create a highly moisturized seal over your skin. It's also the perfect practice for ensuring your lips stay hydrated as well.
When Traveling To A Warm Or Humid Place
If you normally have dry skin, traveling to a warmer climate might actually do your skin some good! The humidity can help your complexion retain more moisture, but just be careful of any salty beach water drying out your skin.
If you already struggle with oily or acne-prone skin, be sure to focus on oil control. The heat and humidity can cause your skin to breakout or over-produce oil.
In that case, pack skincare items that contain acne-fighting and oil-curbing ingredients like salicylic acid.
And, above all, don't forget to pack your SPF!
#6. Use A Clear Bag To Contain Your Products
TSA already recommends using a clear bag to hold your liquid products. Plus, keeping everything in a tightly-sealed bag will help prevent any spillage or leakage from ruining your stylish vacation outfits!
However, it's best to avoid those flimsy Ziploc baggies. Instead, invest in a simple 1-quart reusable clear makeup bag.
For starters, you'll be able to reuse this bag over and over and save yourself from taking trips to Target to get sandwich baggies. Plus, it'll be able to hold more items without breaking or tearing!
#7. Shop At Your Destination
If you're looking to bypass the struggle of packing your many skincare items, you can always try shopping for the essentials at your destination. Many airports and countries in Europe and Asia have plenty of similar or identical products that you can buy once you land.
This will save you both time and space when packing. You can even try buying disposable samples or travel-sized items when you arrive, saving you from trying to pack anything you buy for the return journey.
Traveling is meant to be enlightening, fun, and enjoyable. By properly packing your skincare items, you'll be able to focus less on cleaning up any spills or messages and focus more on soaking in that vitamin D!
