Travelling is one of the best and most exciting things that you can do for your mind and soul and peace.
But sometimes, you also have to travel for business and work.
No matter for what purpose you set off for a journey, there are few beauty items that you should always carry in your tour bag to make you look fresh and presentable in any situation.
Let’s start with skincare essentials:
1. A Makeup Remover Cloth
It’s really important to carry a good quality makeup remover cloth whenever and wherever you visit as it removes all types of makeup without having to use any makeup removing liquid or oil. With this revolutionary remover cloth, you can take off your makeup and have fresh skin in seconds whenever you want.
We recommend you this PleasingCare Chemical Free, Makeup Remover Cloth Facial Cleansing Towel to add to your travel beauty bag immediately.
2. A Cleansing Stick
Just because you’re touring doesn’t mean that you should skip your skin care regime; wash your face with a cleansing stick like this Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick for a cleaner and fresher face.
We suggest a cleansing stick over cleansing foam or gel because a stick formula won’t leak and spread all over your travel bag making a mess.
3. An Excellent Moisturizer
Keeping your skin moisturized is very important, even when you are traveling. It doesn’t matter if you have oily, dry, or normal skin; a good, suitable moisturizer will keep your skin smooth and vibrant all the time, even if you have been taking a trip to the Sahara or the Arctic region.
And in case of a good moisturizer, we would recommend you the Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream or anything that suits your skin type.
4. Never Leave Back the Sunscreen
Wherever you go and whatever you do, DO NOT FORGET TO PACK YOUR SUNSCREEN.
Even if you are not visiting the beach or any hot region, sunscreen is still important to save your skin from that littlest sun exposure you would face during the sightseeing trips.
Also, for traveling purpose, choose a sunscreen with higher SPF like the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock, SPF 50+, to keep your skin protected from the burning sun.
5. A Lip Balm
A slight change in the weather can make a big difference in your skin, especially on the lips.
A good quality, moisturizing lip balm can help to stop your lips from cracking and chapping. Moreover, always putting on a lip balm will make your lips look luscious and fuller, even when you are not wearing any lipstick.
The Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Tinted Lip Balm, Rose with Shea Butter & Botanical Waxes is our top choice for traveling as well as everyday purpose.
Now let’s move on to makeup must-haves in a travel pouch:
6. Under-eye Concealer
You don’t want your under-eyes to be puffy in your vacationing pictures, right?
When you are on a vacation or a trip, it really natural that your sleep routine is disturbed and you might end up having puffy eyes. The right concealer like this Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer can hide all those black circles and puffiness under your eyes and can look as fresh as a daisy without a hint of any tiredness.
7. A Bronzer or a Blush
An excellent quality bronzer or blush of the right color tone can instantly boost your appearance with any other makeup. And when you are on a trip, such a hint of color and glow would erase the unexpected you might have to face from a long sightseeing day.
The NARS Blush Bronzer Duo is one of our favorite for that glow in the face.
Other than just using it as a blush, you can also use it as an eyeshadow for a more glamorous look.
There is nothing better than applying mascara to open up and make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
This L’Oreal Paris Makeup Voluminous Original Volume Building Waterproof Mascara does just that by adding extra volume to your lashes to makes your eyes appear bigger and livelier, even when in reality you are tired and sleep deprived for the traveling purpose.
Other items you must keep in your travel beauty bag:
9. Cotton Buds
Cotton buds are one of the most multi-purpose and useful items that you can add to your beauty pouch. These swabs not only helps you to clean your ears quickly and easily but at the same time also can be used conveniently for applying makeup, painting your nails or even to apply ointments or other products to your skin.
You might try the Cotton Buds Travel Size Premium Cotton Swabs for your next trip.
Don’t you want to smell good when you are on your vacation?
It’s only natural to sweat a lot and smell awful when you are in a sunny desert or a trip to the Mediterranean region; to always smell fresh and feel confident keep and use a scented deodorant in your bag every time you plan a trip.
We prefer the Degree Women Dry Protection Antiperspirant Deodorant, 0.5 oz. size for traveling purpose.
11. Dry Shampoo
When you are traveling, it’s always not necessary that you visit to fancy destinations with all the amenities; you might also take a tour for adventures or go on a hiking trips, and in such cases, a dry shampoo, like the Bumble and Bumble Pret A Powder Shampoo, 2 Ounce, is a must to keep your hair clean and give you a fresh look.
12. Hair Dryer
When you are on a vacation or even on a work trip, you don’t have all day to air dry your hairs and therefore, a travel-friendly hair dryer machine is a must-have in your bag. It would not only dry your tresses fast but at the same time, you can adorn your hair s with the perfect blow-dry even on your busy sightseeing day.
You can find the best travel dryer according to your hair type or you can try this Conair 1600 Watt Dual Voltage Compact Hair Dryer with Folding Handle for the best results.
13. Hot rollers
You never know when you have to attend a dinner date or any other function during your trips, and hence it’s wise that you always carry tools and products to help you get ready perfectly.
A hot roller set is such a tool that would not only style your hairs quickly but would also elevate your looks immediately. The Remington H1016 Compact Ceramic Worldwide Voltage Hair Setter, Hair Rollers could be the best travel companion for your hair locks.
14. Hand Sanitizer
Keeping a hand sanitizer in your trip pouch is extremely important as it not only helps to keep your hands clean (killing germs and removing dirt) whenever there is no water available around but at the same time also takes care of your hands by improving the skin texture so that you don’t have to put a lotion after every time you cleaned your hands. You might buy this Bath & Body Works – ESSENTIAL AROMATHERAPY PocketBac Sanitizers for clean and freshly scented hands all the time.
