Your skin deserves a first-class ticket to radiance regardless of where your holiday travels take you this season. From beachside bliss to cozy cabins, your skincare routine will be as important as ever while visiting differing climates. That’s why we’ve curated some of the best skincare travel essentials to keep your skin healthy and glowing all season long, especially if traveling by plane. Be sure to get your mini products ready when packing for a carry-on. It'll make your packing smooth, and you won't have to part with your favorite items at the TSA checkpoint.

Whether you need to keep oiliness at bay or combat dryness, consider this your guide on what skincare travel essentials to pack, plus some tips on what you can do during your flight. 

Why Are Skincare Routines Important to Maintain? 

Have you ever traveled to a new city and noticed a significant change in how your skin looks and feels? Traveling calls for a new location, climate, and disrupted eating routines  — not to mention the usual stress of travel — so you need to keep your skincare in check. After all, your skin is the largest organ and serves as a protective barrier against environmental stressors, pollutants, and harmful UV rays. A well-honed skincare routine not only preserves the skin's natural balance but also aids in preventing issues like acne, premature aging, and uneven skin tone. Whether your trip is two days or two weeks, maintaining a regular skincare routine promotes hydration, elasticity, and a radiant complexion. You don’t want to spoil a great trip because of a breakout or skin so chapped it hurts.  

How to Prepare for Different Climates 

You probably check your destination’s weather before deciding what to wear during your trip, but have you ever thought about doing the same with your skincare? It’s a smart idea to research where you’ll be traveling, so there are no surprises when you land. Whether hitting the snow-covered peaks of Utah for a ski trip or jetting off to Arizona for a desert retreat, it's essential to pack products tailored to the climate. Even if your skin is always either oily or dry, its behavior can change in a new destination, so preparing for skincare adjustments is wise.

What to Pack 

We recommend traveling with a cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, environmental protection, and sheet masks. Follow along as we break down what products work best for every kind of trip:

Skiing/Snowboarding Trip

Frigid temperatures, high elevation, and wind will all work against your skin as you shred down the mountains. While we all love a post-ski glow, your joy can quickly fade with a painful sunburn or uncomfortably dry skin. Here’s what to pack: 

Hydra Dew Pure™ Oil:Suitable for all skin types, this award-winning facial oil combines pure laminaria digitata seaweed extract,  mastic oil from the Aegean Island of Chios, organic cannabis sativa seed oil, and camellia japonica seed oil. Apply it as needed to help restore your skin's appearance and natural moisture barrier.

Hydra Dew Pure Balm: We consider this theultimate beauty balm, as it's great anytime you need to treat extra-dry areas or patches. The concentrated balm features mastic oil and seaweed extract to comfort the skin, while organic cannabis sativa seed oil helps to lock in moisture.

The kit includes the Hydra Dew Pure™ Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Hydra Dew Pure™ Facial Essence Mist, Hydra Dew Pure™ Facial Moisturizer, Hydra Dew Pure™ Night Cream, and Hydra Dew Pure™ Eye Contour Cream.

This mask is formulated with the exclusive Repêchage® Laminaria Digitata complex, combining seaweed, orange water, and aloe. It also contains natural ingredients like rooibos tea, licorice root, and horse chestnut extracts.

The Beach

Beach days call for UV exposure, salty water, and sandy winds, which can compromise your skin’s natural barrier. Here’s what to pack: 

Mineral Face Shield®: Always bring an environmental barrier to protect your skin from the elements. This mineral-infused, water-free formula effortlessly glides onto the skin, providing an even-matte finish instantly.

Pack this gel in your luggage, so you can treat the whole family while away. 

A Long Flight

We all love jet-setting to Europe or Asia, but did you know extended periods in the air increase the risk of your skin losing hydration? That’s because the plane cabin’s recycled air is incredibly drying. Here’s what to pack: 

Hydra 4® Starter CollectionMake your travels simple with this five-pack travel-sized kit that includes the Hydra 4® Cleanser, Hydra 4® Soothing Toner, Red-Out® Serum, Hydra 4® Moisturizing Day Cream, and Hydra 4® Soothing Clay Mask.
