When you’re travelling, we can guarantee you want to keep your travel bag as small as possible. This can be a bit of a problem, because when you’re abroad, you’re bound to be out and about more which can wreak havoc on your skin. You’ve got pollution, the sun and general dirt to deal with, which can leave your skin a bit irritated and congested.
We’ve got our travel bag essentials, that will make sure you get all the benefits of a great skincare routine, but some have multiple uses so you can bring less.
The Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser is a great addition to your travel bag. Not only does it gentle cleanse your skin, but we find it’s also great for a daily exfoliation too. When travelling, you want to keep your products to a minimum, whilst still having a product that looks after your skin. The Moor Cream Cleanser will help remove any buildup, and if you’ve been out and about, the product is great for calming irritated skin.
If you’re not familiar with a toner, their main purpose is to remove any excess cleanser and close your pores. When travelling, your skin can suffer from a number of issues including air pollution, congestion and dehydration. We love this toner because not only is it refreshing, but it helps protect your skin against pollution. Plus, you can apply it throughout the day so take it on the plane with you to refresh during your flight.
We can’t emphasise the importance of having an SPF cream on daily. Our go to product for travelling is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF30, not only because it has broad spectrum protection, but because it’s really hydrating and also combats ageing. No matter where you are in the world, there’s a benefit of having a face cream with SPF in. Check out our full blog on the topic by clicking here.
We know you might put a face mask at the bottom of your travel bag essentials, however we think it’s vital. If you’re away for more than a week, having a hydrating face mask that also reduces the appearance of stress is super important. One reason why we love this face mask when travelling, is that it has an applicator built into the product, meaning you can apply it easily. Perfect if you’re on a long-haul flight and want some skin nourishment.
Whenever you’re travelling, no matter where you’re going, you’re going to be tired! Combat the signs of tiredness quickly with some under eye patches, especially these ones from Recipe For Men. They’re individually packed meaning they’ll fit into your travel bag easily, and they’re perfect for refreshing the under eye area. Reducing the appearance of eye bags has never been easier!

When I started improving my grooming routine, I was overwhelmed by the plethora of products to choose from. I quickly learnt that grooming doesn’t have to be complicated. My aim is to give you an understandable breakdown of skincare, haircare and general grooming.
