Skincare On The Go!

If you're planning a vacation for Labor Day weekend, there's one thing you can't forget about packing... Your skincare routine! Use this post as a helpful reminder of what to pack to keep your skin glowing wherever you go.

In your carry-on or over-night bag...
  • 1oz spray bottle of alcohol-free toner  (spray on your face about 5 minutes before your flight.)
  • Hydrating serum (apply over toner while still wet on your skin.)
  • Eye drops to keep your eyes refreshed and not dried out from the stale cabin air.
  • Petroleum-free lip balm (in a pot, not a stick -- apply immediately after licking your lips for moisture.)

In your luggage...

  • Gel or cream cleanser in a tube or bottle (no bar soap!)
  • Spray alcohol-free toner (so there's no need for cotton rounds.)
  • Non-clogging sunscreen (in a tube so that you can carry it in your purse for touch-ups.)
  • Night-time lotion (kept in a spill-proof wide-mouthed bottle, which is easier to pore out without having to stick your fingers in.)
  • Gel makeup remover (if necessary, you can use it with your fingers.)
  • Snack-size ziplock bag with cotton rounds (you really should use cotton rounds to remove your eye makeup because makeup remover wipes can tend to leave a film on your skin, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.)
  • A soft washcloth skin shammy or exfoliating complexion brush to help thoroughly cleanse your skin of any oil, dead skin cell build-up, or makeup.
  • Nail file (trust me...)

A convenient way to have all of these items is to purchase Daniela's Facial Studio's Travel Pack or either Normal-Oily or Normal-Dry skin-types. Not your average travel pack, this kit contains an entire skin care regimen to keep your skin looking its best even while on vacation. 

Sizes included are 1oz or less and should last you at least enough for the average vacation. Product in both travel packs come already packed in a handy quart-size ziplock bag so all you have to do is take it out and place it into your carry-on bag or purse. :)
