When you’re getting ready to travel, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of where you’re going and lose sight of what you need to bring with you. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of scrambling at the last minute to throw together a beauty regimen. Instead, take some time to plan out what you’ll need for your trip so that when you’ve landed at your destination, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy yourself.

Here are some beauty tips to keep in mind for traveling:

Pack Smart

Make sure your moisturizer, sunscreen, and lip balm all have SPF. The sun will dry out your skin and damage it, so it is essential to protect yourself from the sun. Don’t forget to pack some hand sanitizer for when you can’t get to a sink and soap—you don’t want to get sick on vacation. Bring one of those masks that you can use on the plane–your face will thank you for it.

Use products that are lightweight. When traveling, you want to pack light, so make sure you don’t overdo it on items that take up space in your bag. When choosing your products, think about what will fit in your luggage and leave the rest at home.

Keep Hydrated

As soon as you get to your seat on the plane, ask a flight attendant for a glass of water. It is easy to get dehydrated when flying, so drink plenty of water before getting on the plane and keep drinking while you are up in the air. If you’re going somewhere tropical or hot, drink even more water than usual. You can also eat hydrating foods like fruit and vegetables as you travel—they will help your skin look better while keeping you healthy.

Bring a Facial Mist with You

Facial mists are great because they are easy to carry around in your purse or carry-on bag. They also give moisture and nutrients to your skin throughout the day without messing up any makeup you may have on. Just spray a little mist on your face whenever it feels dry or tight, and enjoy soft, hydrated skin all day long.

Keep it Simple

You don’t need 12 different lotions to use on your trip — just pick one or two favorites that work well with your skin type, and you’ll be fine. If you can find smaller versions of your favorite products, go for them. They’re easier to transport and won’t take up as much space in your bag. Plus, many great products come in travel sizes, including eye shadow palettes, foundation sticks, and more.


The best thing you can do for your skin is to moisturize. Use hydrating facial masks, creams and lotions before, during and after your trip. Apply an extra thick moisturizer before falling asleep on the plane, and you’ll wake up with soft and supple skin. If you don’t have time to do a mask or lotion, just apply some good old-fashioned vaseline.
