Looking forward to a trip doesn't necessarily mean we look forward to packing as well. In fact, in most cases, that is the part we dread the most. Not knowing what to bring, how much to pack, and of course when to stop when it comes to makeup and skincare products. Since we often bring everything that we own but end up using just a few products here are some tips on how to pack skincare for traveling.

Pack Only Travel-size Bottles

Packing for a trip is a great time to use all those small, empty bottles you have laying around the bathroom. Everything you need you can put in those since it is easier to pack and you won’t bring more liquid than allowed. If you don’t have it at home, every store offers travel sizes of your favorite products you use every day. Another good tip is to save all the skincare samples you have for when you travel. If your trip lasts two weeks, for example, you’ll have more than enough. However, if you plan on staying longer, a good idea is to research the prices and get some things you need once you get there.

Take Extra Care Of Your Skin When Traveling

Our skin has to deal with a lot on an everyday basis, and we should provide it with adequate skin care. When traveling, we subject our skin to a different climate, water, humidity, and much more. That is why it needs lots of hydration and care. It is best to stick to the products you use every day because that way you will avoid any irritation, redness, or breakouts if the new product doesn't suit your skin. However, what you should consider is picking products from the line and brand you are using, that provide extra hydration. This will make your skin look fresh throughout your trip. Many brands today offer sheet masks as a part of the anti-jet-lag routine so you can try out those too.

Don’t forget your under-eye cream because that will lessen the dark circles and puffiness you can get from flying. If you are going to a place with a lot of sun exposure, don’t forget to pack a face cream with SPF. Another mandatory part of your skin care routine when traveling should be to drink a lot of water and bring your minerals and vitamins, which will make you glow from the inside.

The Importance Of Taking Care Of Your Body As Well

When traveling, our body feels sudden changes too. We are often tired, sleepy and don’t feel really fresh. Contrary to popular belief, working out, for example, is not going to make you feel more tired. It will increase the blood flow and improve your circulation making you feel more awake.

Another good way to help your body while traveling is to have a relaxing professional massage which can help relieve soreness, and relax you from the journey which can be uncomfortable. This way you will be able to fully enjoy your stay and endure all the daily activities and sightseeing you have planned. A relaxing massage can add to the experience of the trip, and through it, you get to learn about oils and products they use. Why shouldn't you enjoy to the max when traveling somewhere? 

Advice From Beauty Bloggers You Should Follow

If you are not sure what are the best products and how you should use them, you can always follow advice from famous beauty bloggers or YouTubers. One of them is Chloe Morello, who has offered some tips and tricks on how to take care of your skin, especially when traveling. Much of the products she uses are natural ones that make your face glow and hydrate your skin, reducing signs of tiredness and lack of sleep. She also emphasizes the importance of masks when traveling even gel under eye patches that you can keep in the fridge to get the effect of cooling. Additional advice she gives is how to do your make-up to hide signs of travel from your face. 

Every trip is a beautiful experience, but it can sometimes be stressful if our body and face don’t cooperate. That is why it is important to pack all the right skin care to avoid any possible problems. Just keep in mind that hydration is the most important part, and for the rest, listen to your skin and body and choose the products accordingly.

The Ultimate Holiday Beauty Prep Guide

We’re all ready for a holiday escape, right? When it comes to your mindset and the level of stress that everyday life tends to impose on you, you can probably land immediately into a luxurious beach chair with a mojito in your hand. You don’t really need to prep for that, you’ve been bracing yourself for that very moment of bliss for months now! However, when it comes to your skin, your nails, and your lovely locks, you could do them a favor by taking a few days to get ready for that upcoming lounging.

Now, before you say that all it takes is a single afternoon to achieve all of your holiday beauty goals, give this guide a chance. After all, you don’t want to find yourself rushing to get your nails done, get a decent haircut, and to get rid of all that unwanted hair – all the hassle might cause you to forget a crucial part of your prep! This way, you can start your holiday in style: cool and relaxed, and above all, stunning!

Put Your Best Foot Forward

The harsh winter winds, cold weather, and all the stress have surely taken their toll on your complexion, but keep in mind that your feet have suffered, too. You’ve been wearing heavy booties, plenty of layers, and if you’ve been religious about your workout routine, then your feet haven’t really had a chance to relax. Dealing with hardened skin, layers of callouses, and dry skin patches can be a pain in the neck.

The sooner you start preparing your lovely toes, the easier it will be for you to transform them into Cinderella-worthy material! Use the weeks prior to your vacation to go heavy on the file. Right before you take a shower, file away at your dry skin to remove any excess. Then, the warm water and the exfoliation will open up your pores, getting your feet ready for a rich lotion. A few weeks later, you’ll have silky-smooth feet!

Pamper Your Locks

About a week before your holiday, it’s time to tend to your tired strands. The same environmental factors that impact your skin and your feet have a profound effect on your hair, plus the relentless usage of styling products and heat can only increase the damage.

Make sure you go for a trim to get rid of those split ends, and get a deeply nourishing mask to revive your locks. If you’re headed to a sunny beach, you need to make sure your hair can stand the salty water and the sun exposure, so it’s vital to focus on moisture and protection.

Sort Out Your Makeup

We all love to give our lips a touch of vibrant red for a night out, or some blush and mascara to keep the contours of our face vivid and bring out our most wonderful features. However, holidays and makeup don’t mix too well, especially if you plan to spend your days sunbathing, slathering on sunscreen, and enjoying the waves. Still, there’s a solution that brings you the best of both worlds!

As a part of your prepping ritual, head to a reputable aesthetic clinic nearby, where you can take your pick from a selection of permanent makeup procedures. From getting your eyebrows done to perfection, to giving your lips a tint of long-lasting paint, you can avoid clogged pores, smudgy eyes, and running mascara in a matter of a few hours!

Deep-cleanse Your Pores

A few weeks before you escape to your little oasis of beauty and rest, devote some of your time to your skincare regime. For starters, most of us are guilty of neglecting our exfoliation needs. To get the best results without overburdening your skin, use natural exfoliants such as coffee or sugar scrubs, once or twice a week, and always follow up with a rich moisturizing lotion.

Use a mild facial exfoliant and don’t forget to stay true to your sunscreen ritual. Of course, we assume you’ve used your facial sun protection lotion throughout the year, so all you need now is to stay consistent to prevent any damage. An occasional exfoliation will help your skin absorb the ingredients even better!

Wax At The Ready

Finally, as your pièce de résistance if you will, and not the most soothing of rituals on the list, waxing is a must-do for ladies who would like to enjoy soft skin for the duration of the vacation. While it’s not recommended to get it done on the very day of your travels, only one or two days before your trip will be more than enough to give your skin some time to recuperate and be beach-ready.

This will leave you plenty of time to deal with the mani-pedi essentials, choose what to pack for your skincare and beauty for the holidays, and simply bask in that freshly groomed body of yours!

Your body deserves some pampering in the days and weeks before it’s vacation time. Use these tips to prepare for the holiday rush, and you’ll look and feel your best when the fun begins!
