Are you going somewhere over the break? Don’t forget to take your skincare products with you. If you love beauty and taking care of your skin, then packing them shouldn’t be that much of a chore. It may even be fun! However, you can’t stuff everything in your carry-on bag. Here’s a nifty edit of essential products that should always be within reach when you’re traveling.

Cleansing Wipes

Cleansing wipes have a multitude of functions, so they’re handy to have around “just in case.” Spilled some juice on your shoes? Wipe it. Is the escalator handle sticky and gross? Wipe it. Did you smudge your mascara after listening to Taylor Swift? Wipe it! Skincare-grade cleansing wipes are just as useful especially when traveling.

Face Powder

You might be thinking, “Who even wears powder these days? Matte is so out.” While the latter is true, a good quality face powder can still come in handy for reasons other than mattification. Besides, some skin types, such as , do benefit from a powder’s sebum-absorbing properties.

When traveling, you want to bring products that work double-duty, like a face powder refreshes the face, removes excess oil, provides UV protection, and instantly brightens the skin upon application.

Hydrating Essence

Essence is one of the most nourishing skincare products you can take with you on a plane. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, an essence is a refreshing, non-sticky way to feed your skin. It’s especially essential when traveling since the low humidity in airplanes (usually less than 20%) tend to dry out the skin. Without any help, your skin could feel itchy and uncomfortable and eventually compensate for the dryness by making more sebum. 

POND'S Bright Miracle Serum Burst Cream nourishes and refreshes the skin. It also contains brightening ingredients that fades dark spots and makes the skin look impossibly glowing.

High UVA Protection Sunscreen

Most sunscreens can protect the skin from UVB rays, but not all offer much protection from UVA rays responsible for premature skin aging. Here’s the bad news: , meaning you are especially susceptible to sunburn and photoaging when you’re in a car or on a plane during the day.

Choose a sunscreen with “PA++” on the label (the more plus signs, the greater the protection factor). Vaseline Healthy Bright SPF24 PA++ provides broad-spectrum sun protection in a non-sticky formula. It also contains droplets of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to moisturize and niacinamide to brighten skin while preventing sun damage.

Try packing the skincare products above in your carry-on for easy touch-ups. These multitasking essentials work hard to keep the skin clean and fresh while providing additional benefits such as sun protection, brightening, and hydration.
