Traveling this winter? These are some must-have skincare essentials

Winter is quickly approaching; colder weather and the holiday season can take a toll on our skin. Whether it is due to the stress of a busier schedule, indulging in richer foods, or fewer hours of sleep, our skin is often the first place to reveal the side effects of the winter season. Traveling during the holidays makes it even more difficult to address skin concerns because we are forced to prepare for skincare needs ahead of time and because most of us don’t have enough space in our carry-on for our entire skincare cupboard. Therefore, high-performance, multitasking products are crucial for future skin needs as well as the smartest packing. Below are a few of our favorites!

Ere Perez Fig All-Beauty Jelly

skincare travel essentials

This all-purpose jelly removes makeup, cleanses, and hydrates the skin. To remove makeup and cleanse the skin, simply apply the product dry, or add water to create a nourishing cleansing milk and wash away impurities. If traveling and cooler weather has dried out your skin, apply a generous amount of the All-Beauty Jelly and wear it overnight as a mask. With chamomile, vitamin E, and fig fruit extract, this jelly is also perfect for ‘slugging’ because it locks in products put on before it. Swap out your petroleum jelly for this safe product.

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator

skincare essentials for travel

The hydrating accelerator is perfect for traveling because it can be applied at any time for a boost of hydration. With aloe vera and antioxidant-rich botanicals, this facial mist enhances the performance of products applied on top of it, such as serums, oils, and creams. Use the hydrating accelerator after cleansing for immediate hydration or throughout the day to refresh and relieve irritation. Don’t bother packing your makeup setting spray too; this mist can also be used after makeup application for a dewy skin boost.

Paris Laundry The Everywhere Oil

skincare travel must haves

We mean it when we say that this product can be used everywhere. The Everywhere Oil is non-greasy, fast-absorbing, and ultra-hydrating. Improve skin texture, relieve dry skin, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles with sesame seed oil, jojoba oil, and Moringa seed oil. It can be applied all over the body as a moisturizer or to targeted areas for added hydration. No need to pack a hair oil – apply the Everywhere Oil to the ends of your hair after heat styling or generously from root to tip and leave in overnight as a hair mask. Wash hair in the morning.
