If you are the type who travels a lot, you might have seen until now that packing your bag is akin to a puzzle – you are basically trying to fit as much stuff in as little space as possible. As you are folding jeans until they turn into balls of fabric and shoving books into the tightest corners of your bag, you might be wondering how you could possibly fit anything else in there.
More specifically, you will ask yourself which beauty products are worth carrying, and what are the ones that are best left home. Fortunately for you, we have compiled a short list that will help you pack the most important beauty items without overburdening your bag. Here are a few essential beauty products for traveling everywhere.
Basic Makeup Products
No matter how small your bag is, you will still have to pack a few beauty products. Since the list of combinations is too big to cover into a single article, here are a few essentials that you should consider carrying with you:
–Mascara (preferably waterproof). Never leave home without it, as you never know how much you will sweat or when the weather decides to turn against you.
–Products for eyebrows
–Concealer and highlighter. These are great if you do not feel like pampering your face with tons of foundation. Moreover, they will help you hide those spots caused by the scorching sun.
Beauty Products When You Are on The Go or On The Plane
Nobody goes on a vacation to spend their days inside, so you will probably be always either on the move, either by foot, plane or train. Since you will not always have the chance to spend a few consecutive hours doing your entire beauty routine, you will have to think pragmatically and choose small, portable products that you can use in between visits.
First things first, let us talk about eye mask, tooth kit, earplugs. While some people might not include them in the ‘’beauty products’’ category, it is a good idea to pack them in case your fellow passengers decide to read for hours with the lights on or they are particularly noisy sleepers.
Adding to the list of essential beauty products is facewash and deodorant. These should be packed regardless of trip duration. There is nothing more frustrating than that sticky sensation your face gets after spending 5 to 10 hours in the recycled air of the plane (God forbid you have oily skin, that is a true nightmare to handle), or after rushing from landmark to landmark. If you are facing this particular conundrum, a high-quality facewash is your best friend.
Finally, there is a case to be made for muscle cream, pillow spray,and moisturizer. Even if you are not an avid traveler, you probably know what the shortest of flights can do to your skin in terms of hydration. In order to keep your skin nourished and hydrated, make sure to pack a moisturizer and apply it every few hours (if the flight is long, of course, there is no sense in doing this during a two hours trip). On the other hand, what you will not be spared off regardless of flight duration is neck stiffness – for this purpose, a muscle cream will come extremely handy.
Beauty Products for Hotel Stays
Facemask. If you want to spend several weeks without putting on any makeup, a holiday spend abroad is the best chance that you will get to do this. But, whether or not you do decide to go for this, a facemask is essential to keep your skin hydrated and heal the skin after being exposed to the elements of nature.
Body lotions and oil. These particular beauty products are appropriate if you are planning to hit the beach every day. Apply these each night before going to bed in order to counteract the effects of the sun and to properly moisturize the skin. Furthermore, they will make the tan last longer and encourage it to spread evenly.
Sun cream. If you are really tight on space, you can easily ditch the products we have mentioned above and grab just this one. No matter where you are going, protecting your skin against the effects of the sun is essential if you want to avoid any potential complications.
Packing can be a frustrating process, especially if you are dealing with spatial restraints. However, it does not have to be so stressful – it all comes down to is figuring your own personal needs and accommodating them to your travel destination. Make sure to read through this article and hopefully you will have an easier time deciding what beauty products to carry over with you.
