My travel-ready skincare tips

drink all: Our bodies need water! Keeping your water intake up to date is essential at home and even more important while traveling. Dehydration can leave skin looking dull and tired. Always keep a water bottle handy during flights and refill it regularly. Try to drink at least 2 liters of filtered water a day. Keep your alcohol intake on the plane in mind, too: Be sure to drink more water if you choose to sip a bubbly drink while you’re in the skies. Also, you can enjoy herbal teas or lemon-infused water. And… my absolute essential is a quality marine collagen supplement, which can help maintain skin hydration. Look for one made from wild-caught fish that is hydrolyzed for absorption.

Smarter Package: When it comes to packing products, I always like to travel light and minimal. You can easily create your own personalized travel skincare kit using just a few of your favorite products that are specifically designed to meet the needs of your individual complexion. Focus on including items that nourish, cleanse, and hydrate, such as natural oils, gentle toners or mists, moisturizers, and face masks. If you’re going on a shorter trip, get some travel-size containers and put just what you need from your full-size skincare in them for your getaway. Our 4 Step Vitamin Skin Care System It’s the perfect size to pack away for travel, ensuring your skincare essentials are always within easy reach.

Go Natural: Since it absorbs so quickly into the skin, thinking of skincare as “skin food” helps guide my choices. Simple ingredients like organic face oils are great for traveling as they can be used in multiple ways: as a moisturizer, a natural brightener, a quick face mask, or even as a makeup remover. They’re also incredibly effective at sealing in moisture while acting as a protective barrier against harsh weather and conditions, perfect for both long-haul flights and everyday use. I am obsessed with the Luminous Vitamin Oil!

Protect your skin against pollution: Air travel can greatly dry out the skin, making it more susceptible to external aggressions. To combat this, opt for skin care products that are rich in antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E. These work by protecting your skin from environmental free radical damage caused by pollution. If you’re traveling across town, it’s also extremely important to wear a quality zinc-based SPF (30 or higher!). Along with topical care, remember to nourish from the inside out. Pack travel-friendly supplements that provide antioxidant protection to support skin health. At meals, be sure to eat vegetables such as spinach, kale, and broccoli, as they provide essential nutrients and fiber to contribute to a well-rounded and nutritious diet. I personally love snacking on healthy fats like almonds and walnuts – delicious and wonderful for skin health! Antioxidant-rich foods like goji berries, chia seeds, blueberries, and turmeric can also help boost skin’s radiance.

relax and recharge: No matter how busy your travel schedule may be, making time for yourself and taking quiet moments is essential. This could involve taking a warm shower or bath at night, gentle stretching, journaling, or even a quick gua sha session. I love using my gua sha beauty tool with the 4 Step Vitamin Skin Care System, since it helps to calm facial tension and send lymphatic drainage throughout the face. Our bodies tend to retain more fluid on long-haul flights. Winding down before bed is important to allow our skin (and body) to reset each day.

Bonus tip: pack your sunglasses: Don’t forget to pack an extra pair of sunglasses, as the sun can be particularly strong in some climates. Sunglasses are a great way to protect your eyes and skin from UV rays and allow you to explore with ease (and style!) – a must-have personal item.

Happy travels!
