What to pack in your travel skincare bag
Knowing what to pack up and what you can afford to leave behind is essential for every travel routine. No one wants to have to bring the whole beauty cabinet. Here, celebrity dermatologist and Chief Medical Officer of LaserAway, Dr. Will Kirby, share his 11 travel skincare essentials:
1. Makeup removal wipes
Easy to carry around and a must-have for your travel bag. The cloths instantly remove grease and grime from the skin. They also remove sunblock and whatever else is on your skin after you get off a plane.
2. Eye drops
The arid climate on planes can quickly dry out your eyes. You should use eye drops every few hours on a flight and as soon as you get off it, too, to keep them moisturized.
Carrying a mini deodorant stick with you while traveling enables you to freshen up while on a plane and right after landing.
You can use vaseline for almost everything. If particular areas of your skin are feeling dry, apply some vaseline to the area to seal in moisture. Remember that a little bit of vaseline goes a long way!
5. Travel shampoo and conditioner
Don't use hotel shampoos and conditioners that can be of inferior quality! Instead, be sure to pack your favorite hair products that you can really depend on. After all, you want to look fabulous no matter where you are.
6. Razor and shaving cream
Be sure to pack a razor and a mini bottle of shaving cream, unless you've already undergone laser hair removal treatments.
7. LaserAway Beauty's Wake Me Up
This invigorating serum is infused with vitamins, such as vitamin C, that'll instantly awaken and refresh tired, jetlagged skin.
8. Baby oil
Once you reach your destination, take a warm shower, and apply a thin layer of baby oil over your entire body. Then pat dry with a towel for instant silky soft skin.
9. My Hero from LaserAway Beauty
This serum contains one percent retinol that increases skin cell turnover, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply this product right before bed for best results.
10. BFF SPF 50+ by LaserAway Beauty
This tinted facial sunblock has both UVA and UVB protection. It's also very flattering and has a matte, dry finish that's nongreasy.
11. LaserAway Beauty's Jetsetter Mask
This serum-saturated mask is made with plant extracts, vitamins, and antioxidants. Once you get to the hotel, unwind by putting on this mask and relaxing in front of the TV. Your skin will look well-rested.
