Beauty Bag Raid: A Traveler's Skin Care Essentials Unleashed

Your skin goes through a lot every day and what more if you’re traveling most of the time?

If you grew up in a tropical country like the Philippines, chances are, your skin reacts when exposed to a colder or warmer climate. These sudden temperature changes brought about by your constant traveling can leave your skin and hair dryer than usual and it’s something you just can’t have!

Fortunately, switching to a skin care routine that will keep your skin hydrated can save you from this unwanted situation. So, no matter the season and destination, you’d surely want to get a glimpse of what’s in the bag of a traveler who leaves no room for skin care mistakes.

1. Face Wipes

Any beauty routine starts with a clean canvas. But, when a full face wash is not possible, cleansing with face wipes can be your best alternative. Invest in quality face wipes that cleanse the skin without drying.

2. Micellar Water

If face wipes are not your thing, then micellar water may be the one for you. The beauty of this product is that it is meant to be used in place of your usual cleanser plus water routine. All you have to do is wipe the solution to your skin with a cotton pad.  

3. Body Balm

If you’re traveling to a country with a different climate, make sure to gear up your skin for the sudden drop or rise of temperatures. Keep in store a body balm that will help revive your skin after exposure to sun or harsh winter weather.

4. Lip Balm

Now, it’s not only the skin that gets dried but, your lips too. Keep them from getting parched and stingy with a handy lip balm. Opt for a tinted balm that can already double as your lipstick and blusher at the same time.

5. Moisturizer

Factors such as sudden temperature change can take a toll on the moisture balance of the skin. Restore moisture by applying a generous amount of moisturizer. Select one with broad spectrum SPF and anti-aging formula to shield your skin from stress and sun.

6. Sunscreen

No matter where you’re headed, a sunscreen is a must. It’s your first line of defense against UV light exposure and free radical damage that can result in premature aging. Opt for a waterproof product that can last hours of wear.

7. Face Mist

Celebrities and makeup artists swear by keeping a face mist in their bags. Keep one in your handbag and spritz it on your face whenever you feel like you need a refresher. You’ll be surprised to see how soon you’ll be obsessed with this product.
