If you travel regularly, you know the problems of putting your skincare regimen in baggage. Due to many restrictions due to airline regulations, it is hard to carry around your everyday products. Here, resTORbio will show you how to pack skincare for travel and take care of your skin.
Why Is It Any Different?
Your skincare routine can be affected by travel. You will need to comply with TSA guidelines regarding liquid products when you fly. This could mean reducing the size of your products or looking for products that are not liquid.
How Can I Make My Skincare Products TSA Friendly?
According to the TSA, all liquids must weigh no more than 3.4 ounces. Many containers can be used to store your favorite products without you having to alter your routine. These containers can be found at any pharmacy or drugstore.
It might be worth switching products to smaller containers. You could, for example, take our Makai Marine Hawaiian Face Moisturizer on your trip. It already comes in a TSA-sized container.
You can also take your favorite colors with you when you travel with the three-pack of Kukui Oil Lip Treatments.
You’re sure to love our Kona Peptide Eye Cream and our Aloe E Face Washer. The travel kit includes both and is approved by the TSA.
All About Non-liquid Products
You can also make sure you get through TSA quickly by choosing products that aren’t liquid. Our favorite products are the Charcoal Powder and Papaya Enzyme Face Cleansers. They also come in a small travel size so you can take them with you wherever you go.
Stick to the Basics
Few things are essential when I travel.
- Toner or cleansers allow me to remove light makeup or dirt from my skin while on the plane.
- Use a sleeping mask. These portable masks keep my skin hydrated even in dry, hot hotel rooms.
- Use a sheet mask to add more hydration.
- Eye cream to prevent wrinkles from developing.
- Lip balm to soothe my dry lips. Tight lips can make it difficult to sleep.
For long-haul flights (6+ hours), I will generally wipe my face with the cleanser, then apply a sheet mask and a gel or sleeping mask (+ Lip Balm + Eye Cream) to my skin during flight to keep it hydrated. This helps to speed up the flight.
Choose Your SOS Products Carefully
You have precious space in your suitcase so choose carefully what products you bring. You should consider 1) the problems you want to avoid (e.g., You should also consider the climate where you will be traveling (more details later).
Everyone: If you have only one skincare product that you can bring, consider an exfoliant. You don’t have to be picky about the type of exfoliant you choose, but make sure that it is one that you have used before and works well for your skin. It is a great way to “reset” your skin and help reduce any problems you may have.
A hydrating mask for acne sufferers that contains ingredients such as salicylic acid and tea tree oil can help reduce the appearance of breakouts.
This is why I love it as an SOS product. It delivers a double punch. It minimizes skin breakouts while providing water-based hydration.
Even if your skin is oily, dehydration can occur when you travel by plane or in an area without humidity. This can cause more breakouts. You can avoid both problems with one product.
You might also want to bring a spot treatment for any emergency pimples. Cystic acne is more common if you are prone to dry spots.
You might be more susceptible to whiteheads. This treatment can double as a calming agent for those with calming symptoms. ).
You may be sensitive if you have sensitive skin. I recommend a soothing cream or a face mask that you can use as many times as you need to soothe your skin.
Water lily extract, red marine algae extract, allantoin, and green tea extract are some of my favorite ingredients for relieving irritations and sensitivity.
Bring a moisturizing cream and facial oil if you are prone to dryness. It is essential to replenish your skin’s oils to prevent flakiness or crepey skin. This is especially true if you fly on an airplane or go somewhere cold.
How to Pack Skincare for Travel
Use a Balm Oil Cleaner
The first one is straightforward. Spillage can be a problem because oil cleansers are stored in a pump bottle. It is possible to avoid this by purchasing an oil cleanser in a solid balm.
We love the Enature Moringa Cleansing Balm. It’s small enough to carry with you in a bag. It is spill-proof, easy to use, and even more convenient to pack.
Pre-soak Your Toning Pads
It’s hard to find something better than refreshing your skin with a cleanser or toner during a long travel day. You don’t need to take a whole bottle everywhere you go.
Pre-soak your cotton pads in toner and then seal them in a Ziploc bag. These will keep your cotton pads moist, and they will make it easy to tone your skin quickly.
Put Your Eye Cream in a Contacts Case
It is essential to use eye cream daily. Acwell pH Balancing Intense Eye Cream is one example of a hydrating cream. The eye cream doesn’t require much.
You don’t need to bring the entire jar. Instead, you can fill an old contact case with the cream. This will give you enough for a few days in a smaller package.
Use an Eye Dropper for Your Facial Oil
You can also use an eyedropper bottle to store facial oils. A lot of facial oils are packaged in fragile bottles. Therefore, it is better to pack your oils in a plastic eye dropper bottle.
The container store dropper bottle was used in the video. However, any dropper bottle can be used. This will also make it easy to apply directly to your skin.
A facial oil stick is another option. You can apply it directly to your skin. It is also easy to carry around.
Mix Your Serum Into Your Moisturizer
This is a great tip to help your skin feel nourished. Mix a few drops of your favorite serum in your travel moisturizer, and then mix them.
This will make it easier to carry and easier to use. The Manyo Factory Galactomy Essential Cream is a great travel moisturizer. It is lightweight but packed with soothing ingredients and antioxidants, ideal for winter travel.
