The Traveler’s Guide to Eye Creams & Masks

By Wander Beauty | Jun 26, 2023
Wander Beauty Makeup and Skincare Products in Travel Bag

Traveling is a treat, but it can be stressful. With factors like sleep deprivation, weather and lifestyle changes, taking care of your skin is crucial, especially when you're on the go. Eye skincare products are essential to keeping your skin healthy – from reducing puffiness and dark circles to protecting from environmental stressors, the benefits of eye skincare are plentiful.

If you're planning your next trip, join us as we explore the importance of incorporating eye skincare into your travel routine, so you can look and feel your best wherever you wander.


Why eye skincare matters, especially when traveling

The skin around your eyes is thin and delicate, making it prone to visible signs of aging, sun damage, stress, and dehydration. Eye skincare products – including creams, serums, and masks – should form a part of your skincare routine from your 20s but become especially important when traveling. Yes, even in an airplane, skincare is a must! Of course, you’ll probably want to simplify your skincare and makeup routine while traveling to save time and space, but that doesn't mean you should skip the essentials.

Whether you're traveling by road or by air, chances are your sleep schedule will be disrupted. If you're traveling overseas, you’ll also have to deal with circadian changes due to different time zones. And lack of sleep isn't the only thing that negatively affects your skin – dehydration caused by airplane travel, increased alcohol consumption, and changes to your daily habits can also have a negative impact, not just on your health but on your skin. The first place this will show up? The area under and around your eyes.

How to care for the eye area when traveling

Late nights, jet lag, and dehydration can keep you from looking and feeling your best while traveling. To treat the visible signs of travel, you need to learn how to pack skincare for travel – which not only includes choosing travel-friendly products but also choosing the right products. To care for the area around your eyes and avoid dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness, we recommend our Baggage Claim™ travel-friendly range. You have two options: Baggage Claim™ Eye Masks or Baggage Claim™ Everyday Eye Cream.

The under-eye masks visibly brighten, hydrate and reduce puffiness while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, peptides, and aloe leaf extract, they provide a host of benefits, delivered deep into the skin for maximum results. Pop these on while enjoying your morning coffee or during (offscreen) zoom meetings!

If you prefer the texture of a lusciously whipped cream, opt for our Everyday Eye Cream. This potent formula, enriched with shea butter, calendula extract and Meiview™ provides all the benefits of Baggage Claim™ Eye Masks, with additional skin tightening and lifting benefits. The antimicrobial applicator gently massages the eye area, for firmer, brighter and more lifted skin. For best results, apply twice daily.

Your skincare should always be a priority, but if you need an extra boost covering up dark under-eye circles, educate yourself on how to treat and conceal dark circles using the best makeup techniques.

Ingredients to look for in eye skincare products

When it comes to eye skincare products, the ingredients are essential. While there are many options to choose from, certain ingredients have proven benefits for the eye area. Here are some key ingredients to look for when buying eye skincare products.

Peptides

Peptides are small chains of amino acids that help stimulate collagen production in the skin. When applied to the eye area, peptides can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. They also have antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free radicals that cause damage.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin. When used in an eye skincare product, it can help hydrate the eye area and plump up fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is particularly useful for those with dry or dehydrated skin.

Vitamin C

This vitamin is a powerful antioxidant that helps brighten the skin and protect it from environmental damage. When applied to the eye area, vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. It also helps to stimulate collagen production, which can help to firm and tighten the skin around the eyes.

When shopping for an eye cream or serum, look for products that contain one or more of these ingredients. These ingredients can help to improve the overall health and appearance of the eye area, leaving you looking refreshed and revitalized.


Other skincare tips while traveling

You’ve packed your travel-size eye cream, serum, or mask and have your travel skincare routine on your phone memo and ready to work its magic. But is there anything else you can do to keep your skin feeling comfortable and fresh while traveling? There sure is! For general skin health, be sure to practice the following:

Simplify your skincare routine

When traveling, it's best to keep your skincare routine as simple as possible – this way, you're more likely to stick to it. You’ll want to be consistent, though, because chances are weather changes and environmental pollution are affecting your skin while you're enjoying the sights and sounds of new places. Be sure to remove your makeup at the end of each day using a gentle makeup remover such as B.O.M. Voyage Cleansing Balm.

Wear sunscreen religiously

Even if you're not spending a lot of time outside, it's important to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, and make sure to reapply every two hours if you're spending time outdoors. Pack Up & Glow Priming Mineral SPF 40 provides a healthy glow and is never greasy, sticky, or heavy.

<product>4</product>

Stay hydrated and eat well

Drinking plenty of water is important for maintaining healthy skin, especially while traveling. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water per day, and avoid drinking too much alcohol or caffeine, which can dehydrate you. Of course, you’ll want to indulge while away, but be sure to include plenty of fruits and vegetables to maintain a healthy balance and keep your skin looking its best.
