When it comes to skincare, what makes the cut when you travel can make all the difference.
To help you edit down your essentials, whether it’s for a weekend or a week away from home, we’re sharing the 6 products we don’t leave home without and why:
1. The No-Rinsing-Required Cleanser
Microbiome Micellar Water is perfect for travel for a number of reasons; think on-the-go cleansing, an in-flight hydration boost, or on-the-road skin revival. This clean, fragrance-free formula is gentle enough for all skins for cleansing, double cleansing, and makeup removal (including eyes and lips) and contains hydrating botanicals such as Aloe Vera and Coconut Water to nurture and support your skin. And, it sits happily on the skin and doesn’t require rinsing which makes it so convenient to use when you’re in the car, on a plane, or at a camping site.
2. The Totally Extra Exfoliant
Exfoliation shouldn’t stop just because you’re on holiday. We always pack Enzymatic Micro Peel because this gentle peel suits even sensitive skins and those experiencing a random freakout that so often happens on holidays. Even better, it does double duty as a leave-on, overnight refining mask to soften, smooth, and reboot your natural radiance. Enzymatic Micro Peel absolutely earns its keep in your carry on.
3. The Anytime Serum
You want your skin to be at its absolute best both during your holiday and for when your roll back into work right? [If you don’t look like you’ve had a holiday then have you even holidayed?] Powered by minerals, peptides, and potent antioxidants like Resveratrol and botanical Vitamin A, Rejuvenate 15 Serum is like a vitamin smoothie for your skin, helping to transform a dull, drab, uneven complexion into a plump, resilient, more radiant version of itself. It also makes the cut for us because it’s a truly hard-working serum that can be used morning and night, unlike anything containing Retinol.
4. The Quick Fix
Your skin loves and appreciates hydration wherever you are, especially on a Summer holiday. Quick Fix Hydrating Sheet Mask is a Lotus fibre sheet mask infused with 25ml of a concentrated serum full of Hyaluronic Acid and soothing botanicals to flood your skin with moisture and keep it there. This miracle-working, single-use mask earns its keep by helping revive your skin and get your glow on in minutes.
SKINTEL: You can buy our sheet masks in a holiday-friendly pack of four masks. Oh and there are three other types of sheet masks for different skin concerns. Check them out here.
5. The Rescue Treatment
Laser Aid is the multi-tasker you will (inevitably) need to deal with a multitude of issues that can happen when you’re away from home; from insect bites and stings to sunburn, heat relief and unexpected redness. Also helpful to calm angry acne and breakouts, this rescue cream has an innovative cooling effect on the skin, quickly addressing inflammation and bringing calm and order to the skin.
6. The Great Protector
FACT: Age Defence SPF50+ is THE best anti-ager out there; not only protecting your skin from damaging UVA and UVB radiation with the highest SPF but environmental aggressors like free radicals and pollution. The mix of chemical and physical UV filters help to protect your skin without irritating it in the process and don’t coat your face in an obvious white filter. Meanwhile, a decent dose of antioxidants and the moisture your skin needs to successfully battle the day ahead makes this a can’t-leave-the-house-without.
