If there’s one thing that many jetsetting mums will tell you, it is that travel always takes a toll on your skin. But while it may seem like a good idea to pack all your favourite skincare products, in reality, the last thing anyone wants to do is to lug those big bottles around.
Thankfully, there is a plethora of travel-friendly skincare kits that you can choose from to take with you on your next trip abroad. Here are some of our favourite sets that are packed with travel-sized goodies to address different beauty concerns.
For A Quick Skin Pick Me Up: Skin Inc’s Dewy In A Flash
A travel trio that comprises three signature Skin Inc products that results in dewy skin with three simple steps. Simply use the Pure Revival Peel (5ml), Skin Inc Hyaluronic Acid (5ml) and Deepsea Hydrating Mask a(5ml) to ‘Prep-Nourish-Seal’ and voila, you have dewy skin in a flash. Our top tip: the Deepsea Hydrating Mask is exceptionally useful to take on trips, particularly to cold countries. If you find yourself with dry, sensitive skin, wear a thin layer of the mask to sleep and you’ll wake up with visibly better skin.
