Which skin care products should you bring?

Before you start packing, take a moment to assess your regular skin care routine. Consider which products are essential and which ones can be temporarily set aside. Streamlining your routine not only saves space but also ensures you're focusing on the most critical steps for healthy skin. Choosing the right topical skin care products for your travels can be challenging, especially as space and weight limitations are often a concern. Here's a breakdown of the essential skin care items you should consider bringing:
  • Cleanser: Opt for a hydrating and
  • gentle cleanser or face wash that effectively removes dirt, makeup, and impurities without stripping your skin barrier and over-drying your skin.
  • Hydrating Moisturizer: A lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer helps keep your skin hydrated without clogging pores. Try and opt for a dual action
  • peptide face moisturizer and peptide body lotion with additional benefits besides just hydration, such as rejuvenating benefits and improved epidermal thickness and barrier function.
  • Sunscreen: Protection from UV rays is paramount. Choose a
  • broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 for daily use.
  • Eye Cream: Eye skin ages faster than the rest of the skin on your face, and is significantly thinner. The right
  • eye cream will be specifically designed for the delicate and sensitive skin around the eyes to help combat puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines, ensuring your eyes look refreshed and radiant.
  • Lip Balm: Don't forget your lips; pack a lip balm with SPF to protect them from UV damage and prevent dryness.
  • Spot Treatment: If you're prone to skin issues like breakouts, especially during travel, include a spot treatment with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

    • How should you store your products?

      Proper storage of your skin care products is essential to prevent leaks and spills that could spoil your perfect skin care strategy. Here are some travel skin care tips for keeping your items secure:
      • Separate Liquids: Placing liquid products in a separate quart-size resealable bag (as recommended by TSA guidelines) helps to facilitate the screening process. This also helps to contain leaks and spills, should they occur.
      • Pack in Layers: Place your skin care products in layers within your toiletry bag. Start with the heaviest or least fragile items at the bottom and work your way up to prevent breakage and spills.
      • Seal Containers Securely: To prevent leakage, try placing a small piece of plastic wrap over the openings of your travel containers before screwing on the caps.
      • Organize by Function: Group your skin care products by function, such as cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, to make them easier to locate while on the go.

        • TSA Guidelines

          To ensure a smooth experience at airport security, adhere to TSA guidelines for carrying liquids, gels, and aerosols1:
          • You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item.
          • Make sure to pack items that are in containers larger than 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters in checked baggage, regardless of the amount within the containers.

            • Refillable Travel Size Containers

              • Purchase a set of refillable containers designed to meet TSA guidelines for travel. These often include small plastic bottles, jars, and spray bottles.
              • Transfer your favorite skin care products from their original packaging into these smaller containers.
              • Label each container to prevent any confusion and to ensure you're using the right product.
              • Remember that you may need to refill these containers between trips, so be sure to clean them thoroughly between uses.
