Whether you're on the road or in the sky, sporting an itty bitty bikini or layers of ski wear, putting together a skincare kit for your travels will ensure you have everything you need to keep your skin looking and feeling gorgeous wherever you go.


Join us as we take a look at how to put together a travel kit of your own, and discover our packing checklist to stop you from forgetting the essentials.


Your basic skincare routine


Before planning your kit, you’ll need to determine what you should pack according to your skincare needs. Your skincare routine order should be as follows:


1. Cleanser


While traveling, you’ll be exposed to a host of new environmental toxins, which makes a good facial cleanser one of the most important skincare products during your travels. B.O.M. Voyage Cleansing Balm effectively removes makeup, balances and nourishes the skin, and is suitable for all skin types. Packaged in a sleek tube, it's also ideal for traveling. Enhanced with vitamin-rich jojoba seed oil, free radical-fighting pear fruit extract, and evening primrose oil, which is known to improve the look and feel of skin. Travel without stress, knowing your skin is taken care of.


Be sure to wash your face morning and evening to ensure your skin remains clear and radiant throughout your travels.


2. Moisturizer


Changes in the weather, environment, and the foods you consume can all wreak havoc on your skin, so it's essential to apply a good face moisturizer after cleansing in the mornings and evenings. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout your travels to avoid dehydration, and opt for a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid, such as Mini Dive In™ Moisturizer, which binds water to skin and creates a moisture barrier.


3. Sunscreen


It doesn't matter where you're traveling to or what the weather may be; sunscreen is essential. Fortunately, there are a number of products that contain SPF, making it easy to include in your routine. For example, your best day cream may already come with SPF, or you could choose a 2-in-1 product such as Pack Up & Glow Priming Mineral SPF 40, which will prime your skin for makeup and protect it from the sun.


Be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours throughout the day.


Add-ons for every occasion


Depending on the occasion, location, and climate, you may want to add a few extras to your travel kit or choose our specialized combination formulas to save on space.


Weekend getaway


If you pack well, you’ll be able to fit everything you need for a weekend (or long weekend) getaway into a carry-on. To help with this, Wander Beauty offers a range of mini skincare kits to keep your packing list short but effective.


If you’re traveling to your best friend's wedding or celebrating a special event and know you’ll be having a few drinks, the Berry Necessary Mini Skincare Kit is the ideal skincare companion for your trip. It features the Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask and Glow Ahead Face Oil to instantly brighten and revitalize your skin so that you’ll look your best all weekend long.


Extended holiday


When planning and packing for a longer vacation or business trip, you already have plenty to think about. To make things easier for you, we’ve put together the Good to Go Mini Hair & Body Kit a travel-sized skincare kit that contains your favorite shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and body wash. That's the core of your essentials in just two travel-sized containers!


For longer trips, you may also want to include a face mask once a week to give your skin some extra TLC.


Your favorite skin-specific product


You’ll want to keep your skincare routine as simple as possible while traveling. Once you’ve covered the three most important skincare steps listed above, you have the option of bringing what you consider an essential skincare product along with you, too. If you have super dry skin, your face oil may be the holy grail of your skincare routine. Or, maybe you haven't been sleeping well and need to brighten up your under-eye area for an important event, in which case our Baggage Claim™ Eye Masks are a must.


Preparing for weather changes


Your skin naturally adjusts to seasonal changes, as changes in temperature and humidity are gradual. When traveling, however, you may go from one extreme condition to another within a few hours, leaving your skin no time to adjust naturally. This may cause irritation, breakouts, and changes to your skin's moisture levels.

When going into an environment hotter than what you're used to, your blood vessels may expand rapidly, which could lead to redness, irritation, puffiness, and possible breakouts. Cold air, on the other hand, doesn't hold a lot of moisture, which could lead to either dry skin or an increase in oil production to compensate for the lack of moisture in the air. It may also exasperate pre-existing skin conditions.

The Mist Connection Essence and Toner can help balance the effects of temperature changes by bringing skin-nurturing ingredients to your skin with just a few spritzes. Niacinamide soothes and hydrates the skin while improving appearance, while hyaluronic acid retains moisture, giving the skin a plump, youthful appearance. 


Packing checklist


When packing, opt for travel-sized versions and combination products where possible. Here is a basic packing list for your cosmetic products:


Skincare

  • Face wash
  • Moisturizer
  • Sunscreen
  • Essential add-ons
  • Cotton pads

Body and hair

  • Body wash
  • Body lotion
  • Deodorant 
  • Perfume
