Not sure which types of skincare and beauty products to pack for your getaway? Here’s our curated list of essential skincare you must pack in your bags!
When you’re out of the house, you don’t want to be caught unawares by your skin peeling, or by heavy, dark circles under your eyes. Apart from the obvious discomfort, they’ll ruin your Instagram stories – because if it’s not on Instagram, did your getaway really happen? 😜
If you’re like me and hope to keep your skin looking and feeling cute while enjoying a well-deserved time off, fret not! Here’s a list of skincare products you’ll need to keep your skin healthy, pretty, and glowing when you snap endless selfies at your next staycation.
1. Cleansing Cloth
We’ve all seen the ads on Instagram; a simple piece of microfiber cloth, wet it with water, and POOF! Your makeup has been removed (or the bulk of it). When travelling, this is great for two reasons. One – no more carrying makeup removers which you may have to replace on longer getaways. Two – cutting down on environmental waste (compared to using makeup wipes). Being efficient and an eco-conscious traveller at the same time? We have no choice but to stan.
2. Reusable Cotton Pads & Buds
While we’re all familiar with the traditional cotton items, they have a meaner and greener companion on the block – reusable cotton pads. This means no more having to squish extra cotton pads in your bag, or a pack of Q-tips you couldn’t possibly finish and yet, you never know exactly how many you need either.
3. Tinted Sunscreen
When it comes packing, less is always more. Instead of bringing a whole host of products along with you, why not pick up some multitasking products? Some sunscreens even have added skincare benefits.
Additionally, tinted sunscreen allows you to get your precious SPF while it evens out your skin tone. Win-win, right?
4. SPF Tinted Powder
The multitasking product of our dreams – mattifying, tinted to add coverage on any blemishes, and SPF? I can’t think of a harder working product on the market. It also makes SPF application far easier through the day. After all, who’s gonna ruin their makeup by rubbing on SPF in the middle of the day?
4. Lip & Cheek Tint
Instead of a host of different blushes and a brush, as well as multiple lipsticks, consider grabbing a few of these flexible lip and cheek tints for your getaway. You get a healthy flushed look and you know for sure your lipstick won’t clash with your blush.
5. Anti-Pollutant Setting Spray
After checking out cafes in the vicinity and returning to your hotel, you realise you’re breaking out. How? Why? You did your skin care, you followed your regime. Truly, it does feel like a betrayal. But it’s important to remember that your surroundings play just as much of a part in keeping your skin healthy and glowing.
An anti-pollutant setting spray is another awesome 2-in-1. It keeps your makeup looking fly, and your skin safe from all the unknown nasties in the air.
6. Paw Paw Ointment
I am a firm believer in one thing: paw paw ointment cures everything. Chapped lips, bug bites, road rash, heck even diaper rash can stand to benefit from this magical ointment made of fermented papaya. Paw paw ointments can solve everything if you let it – just slather it on and try it yourself to experience the magic.
7. Shampoo & Body Wash Bars
Okay, hear me out. I know it seems pretty far out to use a bar of soap to wash your hair. But if you’re particular about what goes on your skin, bringing your own shampoo and body wash is key. Plus, these bars come in solid form, which means they don’t eat into your precious bag space!
That’s it! Whether you’re snapping a bathroom selfie or taking a group shot on the bed, these seven types of essential skincare products will have you looking effortless on your next getaway.
