Season-Specific Travel Essentials For Beauty Junkies

Travel is always fun. You explore different places, meet new people, relax and soak in the scene. However, it can be stressful for your skin. You need to take extra care of your skin during travel and for that, you need to know what to pack so that you don’t end up over-packing or leave out some of the essential skin care products.

Here is your ultimate guide to beauty must-haves for different travel destinations.


Traveling to a hot and dry region?

When you are looking for a tropical retreat

When you are travelling to a hotter region, the heat, sun exposure and sand can leave your skin damaged and dull. Your skin therefore needs special care and here is how you can do just that.

Pick a light moisturiser

The dry and hot climate can strip off moisture from your skin but stay away from a heavy moisturiser as it can make your skin oily. Try a light moisturiser instead like the Pond’s Light Moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated without making it oily.

Opt for a BB cream instead of a foundation

BB cream gives you fresh and even-tone. You can use Pond’s BB cream, which will not only cover the dark spots but will also protect your skin against sun damage.

Face Mist

When you are in a hotter climate, the makeup and powder get mixed to make your skin look patchy. So go for a face mist instead of a powder to get a fresh look the entire day.


Sunscreen is the most important skincare product so make sure you wear it all the time. You can opt for Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte Gel SPF 50.


When travelling to a place with lower temp…

When you are looking for a tropical retreat

Stretchy, dry, flaky are the terms you use to describe your skin during winter season and you will face the same problem when you travel to a cold region. Here is what you must carry if you are visiting a destination with lower temperature.

Moisturising cream

Your skin will thank you for using a good-quality moisturising cream. A multipurpose moisturiser will also save you some precious luggage space. Try Vaseline Intense Care Advanced Repair, which is fast absorbing and non-greasy.

Moisturising foundation

Get yourself a creamy, moisturising foundation for a smooth, dewy finish. You can also mix a moisturiser with your foundation to save your skin from dryness.

Waterproof mascara

The winter air can make your eyes watery so make sure you are wearing a waterproof mascara to avoid smudging. Lakmé 9 to 5 Waterproof mascara is just the product you need while travelling to a cold region.

Hydrating lip balms

Lip balms are a must to keep your lips hydrated and soft. We swear by Vaseline Lip Balm. If you want to use lipstick, stick to moisturising lipsticks like a Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color and stay away from liquid and matte ones.


Add some color to your cheeks with blush. It may not seem essential in your travel bag but believe us, you will need it when the temperature is dipping and you want to look warm and peachy.

When traveling to a tropical region; the sweat and heat are going to be bad news for your make up. Here is how you can take care of your skin...

Oil-free foundation

Hot and humid climate leads to excess oil production by your skin and clogged pores. So, use oil-free foundation like Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Mousse Hydrating to keep your skin smooth and fresh.


You need sunscreen if you are venturing out but if you feel that it makes your skin oily and sticky, try Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++Compact. This revolutionary product is designed for humid weather and provides you non-sticky, matte finish with sun protection.

Again, waterproof mascara

The heat and the humidity can make you sweaty and it can lead to smudging of your mascara. Wear a waterproof mascara to avoid embarrassing situations. Our pick is Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.

Blotting paper

Blotting sheets are your best friends while traveling to a tropical region. It will help you to keep your face oil free and fresh throughout the day.

Use a primer

You may want to apply a primer if you want your foundation to stay. A primer will make your foundation last long without making it cakey. BB recommends Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer.
