How to look your best while traveling? This is a question that many travelers ask themselves, and for a good reason!
Whether you’re going on vacation or business travel, it can be hard to maintain your beauty routine. In this blog post, we’ll give you 10 quick and easy tips for keeping your hair looking healthy, skin glowing, and makeup fresh during any trip.
How to Keep Up With Your Beauty Routine While You Travel
Keeping up with beauty routines while traveling can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. All you need is a few easy tricks and products that won’t take up too much room in your suitcase!
Your skin will appreciate all the TLC you give it when traveling. Many of us are guilty of having a few beauty products that we couldn’t live without, so it’s important to limit what you pack when traveling. Pack those that are most important and try to stick to your daily routine.
I like to have a specific toiletry bag with travel-sized containers. This makes it easy to fill or prepare before any trip. My bottles are labeled, so I’m less likely to forget something!
10 Quick And Easy Travel Beauty Tips
1. Pack carry-on friendly products
When traveling, you should always bring small versions of your favorite beauty products with you on your carry-on. They should be small enough to fit in your carry-on luggage, so they are easily accessible.
That way, if something happens during your trip, and you can’t get back to where you’re staying or if the airline loses your luggage- like mine did last year.
You can buy the products already in the travel size or purchase your own travel bottles to fill. One creative solution is to use contact lens cases to hold eye creams.
2. Pack products that have double duty
Find products that have a double duty, like 4 in 1 makeup products. There are so many options that are lipstick, blush, and highlighter in one stick.
Another double-duty product that you might not think about is to use shampoo as shaving cream.
3. Stick to your normal routine
It’s always best to stick to your daily routine. Your face knows what it likes and what works best for you.
You might be tempted to try the luxury hotel products but be careful. Some of these may strip away skin’s natural oils and proteins and induce a flare-up.
4. Spray-on sunscreen
Another essential for traveling is sunscreen. Buy a small bottle of your favorite SPF to use while you’re on the road, or buy a spray-on version, so you don’t have to deal with messy lotion every day!
This will save time and money since you won’t have to spend extra cash on cute travel bottles.
5. Extra hydration for your skin and hair
Travel is dehydrating. It’s important to keep your skin and hair hydrated while traveling.
Give your skin a little extra care by using an extra moisturizing mask. Consider applying a hydrating hair mask putting your hair up in a top knot for your flight.
When you arrive at your hotel or Airbnb, shampoo and condition your hair as usual, and it will feel more healthy and hydrated than when you departed.
6. Use dry shampoo
Instead of washing your hair every day while traveling, try using dry shampoo between washes. This will allow your hair to preserve its natural oils. It helps with volume and is a quick fix for dull-looking locks.
Apply the formula after drying at roots and work it in. Let the dry shampoo sit for a few minutes and then brush out, or use your fingers to rub it into the scalp.
7. Rock your favorite red lipstick
Apply a slick of your favorite red lip before your landing. The right shade will complement your skin tone to enhance the warmth in your face and offer you a healthy glow.
It will also make your teeth seem whiter and help draw attention away from potential dark circles. So no matter how much sleep you get on the plane, you’ll appear put together and ready to explore.
8. Use natural face wipes for quick makeup removal
Makeup wipes are a must-have when traveling! We all know that makeup wipes are great for removing makeup when you’re in a hurry.
Use them to remove your mascara, foundation, and powder after a long day of traveling!
They’ll give you the same clean feeling as washing your face but without having to take any extra time out of your night.
9. Spritz your clothes with your favorite fragrance
Spray your favorite scent on your clothes before packing them in your suitcase. This will make all of your clothes smell great, and you won’t need to pack your perfumes, cutting down on liquids.
10. Extra care for your under eyes
Your eyes can get extra puffy while on the road. Flights are dehydrating, and weird sleep hours are disruptive to your everyday beauty routine.
To help, you can keep spoons in the fridge to have ready for a cold relief in the morning. Or, if you have a jade roller, use it to press on your under eyes for a few minutes.
The pressure can help drain the fluid build-up in this sensitive area, reducing puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams and eye patches are also easy carry-ons.
There are so many great ideas out there for beauty on the go. Pack your favorite products, use dry shampoo between washes, and don’t forget to take care of yourself while you’re away from home! We hope this list has helped you feel more prepared for your next trip.
