In less than two weeks, I’ll be off to Memphis and the next year of my life begins!
Let’s just say anxious is an understatement. With this job, comes a ton a traveling and simplicity. Something I am not very fond of, especially when it comes to my skin care routine. I could probably fill an entire suitcase of oils, lotions and serums – I wish I was kidding. In preparation to a complete lifestyle 180, I’ve been doing a ton of research and trying different products. Really, I’ve been on the hunt for things that combine a lot of the products I am already using into a more consolidated, carry-on version without losing any of the benefits.
When it comes to a skincare routine for the road, I’ve found that the two priorities for me are hydration and comfort. A funky sleep schedule, long hours in the airport / car and high altitude / various climates are all factors in sucking the life right out of your face. So with that being said, I’ve concluded my list of travel must-have’s for the girl (or guy) on the go:
I love this product because it is very similar to the under eye pads I talked about in my April Wellness Post without the mess of washing your face after and throwing things away. This little magic stick has soothing seawater and caffeine infused gel that de-puffs eyes and energizes the look of your skin. Perfect when your schedule is out of wack!
This brand that has been very consistent in my skincare routine and I refuse to let it go. I talked about the MB toner in the January Wellness Post as well. But I seriously cannot get enough. I love this spray as a little hydration pick me up for my skin! Each of Mario Badescu’s mists can be used whenever, wherever and it’s easy to incorporate all three into your day-to-night regimen!
If you are lazy, hate washing your face, or are constantly on the go – treat your self to this gem of a face mask. This is the only face mask I’ve found that you do not have to wash off, I repeat, you do not have to wash off!!! No matter what time your flight gets in or your head hits the pillow, stressed-out skin is no problem. This hydrating mask is a nourishing mix of vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants, and gently exfoliating extracts. Your skin looks instantly renewed, radiant, and ready for anything!
I am a Burt’s Bees chap stick fanatic, so me even posting anything for your lips is a big step to say the least, but this hydrating lip scrub is just the boost you need. Raw sugar cane exfoliates to produce super soft lips, while carnuaba wax base with essential oils hydrate and condition lips, leaving them moisturized like a lip balm to keep them healthy all day long!
Ya’ll already know about this mask I’m sure because I talk about it every chance I get: insta stories, March Wellness Post, and to just about every person that comes to my house. I know… it looks like a bra, but the humiliation of wearing this little baby in public is 100% worth it. This mask is a life saver for traveling for two reasons, 1. it is a black out mask, so sleep during any point of the day is easy 2. the contoured shape is perfect for sleeping if you already have make-up on because your lashes are safe!
Shout out to David’s mom for this one! Like I mentioned earlier, if I tried to put every single oil in my carry-on, it would be impossible which is why I love this product right here. This roll on is a blend of Peppermint, Wintergreen, Dorado Azul, and Helichrysum oils convenient for a fast-paced lifestyle. Use it on your neck or shoulders for a mini massage OR on your temples, forehead or chest for a recharge of energy!
That’s it! if you like the post, let me know what you think! Do you have any travel skincare hacks? Also, I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend – just like that it’s gone… and now Friday again… where did this week go????
Be confidently you,
