Travel is not often as glamorous as it looks through an instagram feed — perfect picnics, put together outfits, perfectly curled hair — but it doesn’t have to be the opposite either! To keep yourself feeling fresh faced and combat jetlag head on, here are the 8 cosmetics made for travel (and why you need them)!
This is by far the most user-friendly fragrance for travellers. It comes in a screw top metal container to ensure no leakage and smells DIVINE!
Travel has a way of draining your skin and your entire body thanks to air conditioning and change of climate, but this particular brand of face oil (Aesop) has a way of restoring your skin in just one application.
This is one of my favourite travel cosmetics – a light spray will leave you feeling refreshed and revived in moments!
These are the perfect alternative to cleansing (i.e. when you just can’t be bothered cleaning your face before bed) and can also be used in situations like overnight trains or long-haul flights.
This is my go-to low-priced moisturiser that keeps my skin feeling nourished for the entire day. Be sure to combine with a light coat of sun protection if visiting a warm climate.
Muslin cloths are relatively new to the scene but are an absolute must in maintaining clear and clean skin. Use daily with Eve Lom Cleanser (below) for the best results.
Eve Lom are a premier cosmetics company who do one thing better than they do anything else: cleanser. A cleanser that has even been dubbed as ‘probably the best cleanser in the world’ by Vogue! Although it is a bit of an investment, a little goes a long way!
8. Moroccan Oil
Moroccan oil has quickly become a staple item in many girls’ cosmetic pouches, so why not take it with you when you travel!? Moroccan oil comes in small travel-friendly bottles and is a great way to ensure your hair retains essentials oils while you travel (very important, especially if you’re spending a lot of time in the sun!)
If there’s just one thing I need to combat jetlag (aside from water, never undermine what a bottle of water can do for your skin), its eye cream. Apply nightly to combat jetlag and leave your skin feeling fresh and revived.
