4 travel size skin care products you should always take with you
Taking care of your skin when traveling is a must – especially when you are frequently on the road. This blog features a compilation of 4 travel size skin care products that you can take with you to help keep your skin clean, hydrated and protected when you are having fun abroad.
When traveling, routines get messed up and it’s difficult to be as disciplined as you are at home – especially if you are traveling for work with 12-hour workdays. Trust me, I have been there, and sometimes it takes all my willpower to follow my usual routine instead of jumping into bed as soon as I arrive at the hotel.
But then I remember if I don’t take proper care of my skin, I might get breakouts, blemishes or even a sunburn, which can put a damper on a trip. Over years of traveling, I have learned that having a good skin care routine is a self-care practice that can easily lift all the stress from a trip.
The good news? A routine using all of the products below won’t take you more than 5 minutes – I promise. Here are some of my favorite products -they are listed in the order they should be applied. Because I’m committed to always traveling with a carry-on, these products are all available in travel sizes.
Remember that everyone’s skin has different needs/concerns so keep in mind to use the products as a starting point for your own skin care routine. I recommend that you give them a try regardless since they have made a big difference on my skin.
