The holiday season is here and you have places to go and people to see, which means you want to look and feel your best. Now that your flights are booked and you have plans and parties coming together, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep up the great results you’ve been seeing from your skin care routine.
Travel can be fulfilling, adventurous and rejuvenating, but sometimes the prep work is stressful and the disruption in routine can threaten care and consistency. We have you covered when it comes to the best ways to take your routine on the road and keep your skin, lashes, brows and hair flawless.
Just because you’re not at home doesn’t mean you can’t keep up your usual routine. Resist the urge to opt for convenient face wipes instead of cleanser, or replace your key products with whatever travel samples you have laying around. You might be on holiday, but that doesn’t mean your skin care routine gets a vacation. Actually, it’s more important than ever to stick to your basics!
Don’t experiment, either.
The holiday season comes with lots of cute packaging and gift-giving, so if you end up with a cool new product or skin care device, don’t get into it right away. With so many other changes in your routine, holiday travel is not the time to experiment. No new masks, creams, gels or cosmetics. The best way to keep your skin happy and comfortable is to keep it simple. Especially since switching up your skincare can disrupt your body’s process of replenishing lost elastin. Stay the course with your go-to NULASTIN® elastin replenishment and your favorite, tried and true makeup bag.
We know how easy it is to check bags for clothes, shoes (and extra gift space post-holiday), but there’s no need to check a bag just for your toiletries. See: our new Luxe Travel Kit. Plus, keeping the essentials on-hand is perfect for refreshing touch ups throughout the day since air travel and climate-controlled hotel rooms can zap moisture and lead to dull, tired skin. When you have everything you need in your purse or carry-on, you’ll still have your favorite products with you if your bags are delayed.
Choose style & sustainability.
Our Luxe Travel Kit was designed with these things in mind. It comes in a gorgeous vegan leather zipper pouch and includes recyclable, reusable and refillable travel-size editions of your favorite products, like our Intensive Hydrating SERUM, Rejuvenating Facial MOISTURIZER, Gentle Exfoliating CLEANSER, HAIR Vibrant Scalp Treatment and Natural Lip Balm. Plus, there’s plenty of room to pack your LASH and BROW serums.
Bonus: With pretty metallic foil accents and luxe gold hardware, this kit is also the perfect holiday gift.
You might be busy celebrating, but changes in weather and indulging in holiday beverages can have a dehydrating effect. Sip water throughout the day and during travel, just like you would when you’re at home or sitting at your desk. Bring a refillable water bottle as a reminder to stay hydrated. A good rule of thumb is to try to get about 12 cups a day for women and 16 cups a day for men.
Lavish your lips.
Lips can be the first area to dry out during harsh weather, so keep them soft and kissable by reapplying your lip balm often. Holiday reds and berries look best on soft, supple, flake-free lips! We love our Natural LIP Balm for its sweet peppermint flavor and intense hydration benefits. It’s packed with moisturizing and soothing organic ingredients like beeswax, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, macadamia nut oil, and rosemary extract.
Amp up moisture.
We can’t stress enough how important it is to moisturize before you fly. Even if you’re departing early and you’ve already put on your skin care for the day, a little boost before your flight will go a long way to defend against moisture loss during your travels. Some people swear by reapplying while en route. Whether you're mid-air, mid-drive, or you just arrived, you can revive your face with our Rejuvenating Facial MOISTURIZER. Remember to clean your hands before touching your skin, too!
We hope these tips help make your trip planning feel a little less hectic. The most important thing is soaking up the joy of the season while continuing to take care of you. This time of year is all about connecting and reflecting on the past year. Look how far you’ve come and think about all the beautiful things ahead.
