healthy skin at 30,000 feet

wheels up, gang, all month long we’re featuring all things travel. although difficult, we can’t neglect our skin when we’re on vacation, because glowing skin is always in. but what to bring when suitcase space is limited?  join me today as i give you some of my tips and tricks for healthy skin when you travel. 

healthy skin when you travel

last year i introduced y’all to Colleen Rothschild Skincare. my favorite product is the Radiant Cleansing Balm. it’s a-ma-zing. even the scent is heavenly. then there’s Retinol Supreme Eye Serum that revitalizes the delicate skin surrounding our eyes. i’m also a big fan of Retinol Supreme Night Oil that combines retinol and moisturizing plant-based oils. but nothing beats the Discovery Collection for travel to keep my skin in tip-top condition.

travel bags

a newly designed travel bag is included with the Discovery Collection. it’s the perfect size to tuck inside your suitcase whether it’s your carry-on or a check-in bag. but if you haven’t yet tried Colleen Rothschild skincare products the Discovery Collection is the perfect choice. you’ll be introduced to seven of their best-selling products. 

  • Radiant Cleansing Balm, 30 ml (1 fl oz)
  • Dual Enzyme Polish, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
  • Clarifying Detox Mask, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
  • Sheer Renewal Cream, 30 ml (1 fl oz)

toiletry bags

besides a travel size bag devoted to skincare, i also keep one toiletry bag packed at all times with travel essentials like baby oil, cotton balls, Tide stain stick, Lysol disinfectant, bandaids, sewing kit, hand sanitizer, eye drops, chapstick, hand cream, pain reliever, towelettes,  and ZzzQuil.

cosmetic pouch

i also travel with one cosmetic pouch dedicated to makeup, nail rescue kit, and travel brushes. whenever i stop in at Sephora, Nordstrom or Ulta i stock up on travel-size cosmetics otherwise i transfer my makeup into travel jars.

if you love to travel with perfume this Travalo refillable atomizer transfers your favorite fragrance directly from the bottle. it’s also aircraft approved for your carry-on. genius in a bottle.

medication, vitamins, or supplements easily fit inside a seven-day pill container.

what to pack for a caribbean cruise

whenever i fly i keep my skin hydrated. plane rides are just downright dry. as soon as i clear the security line i buy a large size of water to keep on hand. a travel size mister replenishes my skin before, during and after my flight. to relieve puffy eyes a jade roller is a must-have. and don’t forget a lip balm for hydrated lips. eyes and lips always feel the effects of changing time zones.

some hotel bathrooms lack good lighting. that’s when a travel mirror comes in handy. i also love to relax and unwind after a long trip with a face mask. and the NuFace Mini Facial Toner is the perfect anti-aging solution.

just remember to keep your skincare routine as consistent as possible when you travel. don’t forget to wash your face at the end of a long day. it’s a vital step in keeping your skin happy. and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

    I like the travel bags. I am all about organizing so I can find exactly what I’m looking for in my bags. Everything in its place. Saves so much time if you’re good about planning for it all.

    Due to multiple knee surgeries recently my mobility is restricted. I’m glad we have our small motor coach which allows me to travel without much walking and I can bring full size cosmetics, a decent wardrobe, and my 2 Siamese cats. Not being able to do the mall, your blog has given me inspiration to look at my closet in new ways and order items online so I can be a fashionable traveler

    Invaluable information! I use the entire Paula’s Choice line and have been taking good care of my skin for years. I saw a friend recently that I have known for years, but haven’t seen each other in person for a while. She said – you still have that porcelain skin – how nice. I plan on ordering the Colleen R. travel kit for my 45 yr. old daughter who will be taking a 3 week trip this summer – lots of beach time – I think she will love it. Beth, your nails look gorgeous. You are a rock star!
