Simplify your skincare routine
When you’re travelling, it is okay to give yourself a break from the usual 10-step skincare routine and stick to the basics. A cleanser, moisturiser, body lotion, eye cream and a couple of sheet masks (if you prefer) make for the perfect fuss-free and effective travel skincare routine.
Don’t forget the sunscreen
One skincare product that you should never skip carrying is a good quality sunscreen of at least SPF 50 or above. This is mandatory to protect your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays, irrespective of whether you’re going on a beach vacay or simply visiting your family for the holidays. Ensure you reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 times during the day for maximum sun protection.
Carry multitasking products
When travelling, multitasking makeup products come really handy. For example, a lip tint can be used on the cheeks and eyes for a lovely monochrome makeup look. An eyeshadow palette can be used as blush, highlight and to fill in your brows. Multitasking products occupy less space in your luggage, and won’t let you compromise on your beauty game. Win-win!
Invest in travel size products
Another great way to pack light is to carry travel-sized products instead of full-sized packs. If you don’t have ready travel packs, reuse small, old containers and fill them with all the products you are planning to carry. This will not just save space but also prevent unnecessary damage to your full-sized products.
