Whether you are jetting off overseas or taking a long weekend, neglecting your usual skincare routine can play havoc on you when you return from your holiday. You can still maintain your skin as you would at home with a few tweaks and exceptions to your usual product haul.

Similarly with your makeup, if you are normally a 5-step beauty boss, travelling with loads of products can sometimes be a pain if you are trying to pack light. Using multi-purpose products can maximize luggage space, getting you on your way for some well deserved R&R.

Packing smart is the goal here, so pull out your list because we’ve got you covered when it comes to travelling with beauty. 

Face & Body

Travel kits are the ideal way to maintain your regime when you are away. The convenient travel-sized products are easy to pack away and the perfect amount for that short trip, ensuring you have all your regular products on hand wherever you go. Trust us, your skin will be thanking you!

Sunscreen is an essential skin care product and shouldn’t be missed on your holidays!

Multi-use products that can be used for the face and body are my go-to, making it super convenient, making more room for your bikini’s and accessories.

Tip: If you are packing super light, key skincare products I wouldn’t miss would be micellar water, lip balm, body balm.

Beauty

In a perfect world, we would love to take our full makeup kits away with us but if you don’t have that luxury every time, do not fear! Multi-tasking beauty products mean less fuss when you are enjoying your vacay! Mini bottles of your favourite products are perfect for packing light and when it comes to fragrance, you can find handy roller balls or travel sprays in a huge range of delicious scents to take with you wherever you go!

Our handy packing hack is to utilise your core products. Cream blushes can double as a lip colour and trade foundations for a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. Making small tweaks to your usual kit will allow for space and ultimately more time spent relaxing.

Hair

Road trips call the roof down and feel the wind in your hair but that can leave you arriving looking like you have been sent through a storm.

Luckily there are products that can tame your mane. Smooth down those flyaways and keep your hair looking fabulous when you arrive.

Keeping your hair looking glamorous without styling tools could be your nightmare but do not fear! Giving your hair a break from heat styling can be a blessing, giving your hair time to produce natural oils, bringing back moisture to the hair.

Your hair can also stay fresh with a multi-tasking dry shampoo that works to absorb excess oil if you find yourself needing a little volume and texture.
