When you’re headed on a trip, big or small, it’s always helpful to plan ahead and know what you want to do in terms of packing and what to bring along. Figuring out your beauty routine while you’re away from home doesn’t have to be a stressful endeavor, nor does it need to be time consuming. Let’s take a look at some of the best beauty tips for travel in today’s article from Lionesse.
Plan what products you really want and need to bring along with you so you aren’t doing the last minute hurry-up-and-pack-my-beauty-products dance at the last minute. Choose products that are climate specific, meaning if you’re traveling to a hot, humid climate, be sure to choose items that won’t simply melt off your face and leave you looking messy. Rather, opt for tinted moisturizer products in the heat, and steer clear of lipsticks and use lip stains and lip gloss instead. Choose products you will actually use, and don’t over-pack.
As mentioned above, choosing to keep minimal beauty products in your travel beauty case will ensure you don’t have an excess amount of products to sift through, making life easier on you when you’re in a rush to get ready and head out for the day. When you are traveling, you want to take the time to focus on what it is you’re out there to do, not worrying about sifting through your makeup bag to find your favorite mascara. Pack the essentials and leave the rest at home until you return.
Keep Essentials on Hand
If you’ve got oily skin, you will want to keep some rice blotting papers on hand at all times to keep your face matte and shine free. If you plan on spending time outside in the sun, even just to take a walk, you will want to ensure you have a small bottle of sunscreen with you – many brands have trial sized bottles. If you tend to have dry skin, keep some of your facial moisturizer on you when you are out and about in a small mini travel container to apply as needed. The same goes for lotion products and hand sanitizers.
Be sure to cleanse your face twice per day when traveling. Being exposed to new environments can wreak havoc on your skin’s delicate structure, due to new pollutants and climate changes. Also, allergens within the air can also cause myriad issues. Be sure to cleanse when you wake up in the morning with a good quality facial cleanser, and once at night after removing any and all makeup products from your face with your favorite makeup remover.
Some of the basic beauty essentials you should always have with you when you travel, that work for any climate, environment, or occasion are as follows:
- Tinted moisturizer
- Lip gloss
- Lip stain
By keeping those products with you, you can always have a natural makeup look and give yourself a bit of color without going overboard. Keep it classy and simple when you travel and chances are you will have no beauty maladies to interrupt your vacation or business trip.
