Travel Beauty Tips | Amy on The Chat

We all been there. You plan for your special trip. You buy clothes, makeup, make reservations, and count down the days. But when you arrive at your destination you feel off. And what’s worse, instead of looking like Malibu Barbie… you feel like Sasquatch. How can you maintain that fresh feeling you have at home, while away from your usual routine? Here are some trusted travel beauty secrets I’ve collected over the years.

Skin Care – It’s all about Hydration

Image Skincare
Image Skincare Vital C skincare comes in travel size and is extremely moisturizing.

Evian Water Spray
  • Look and see if your fav skin care has  travel boxes (moisturize like crazy).
  • A spray water mist like Evian will help you feel refreshed, especially on long flights. 
  • Drink lots of water. It’s easy to put this off especially if you are trying to avoid the lavatory, but it’s a must if you are wanting to stay looking fresh. 
  • Saline eye drops are also a must have for me. I live in a humid climate and my eyes tend to be dry. If I travel to someplace remotely dry I have sandpaper for eyelids. 

Makeup – Less is More

  • Choose foundation with spf or tinted moisturizer so your skin is protected while maintaining great coverage. 
  • It’s helpful to choose makeup that has multi use such as beauty sticks.
  • Choose neutral colors that will go with everything to simplify what you bring and eliminate bulk.

 Fit Your Healthy Lifestyle into your Travel

  • If you feel beautiful you look beautiful, get moving and go for a walk or hit up the gym.
  • Get your Vitamin D, embrace a kiss from the sun even if it’s just 10 min.
  • Be mindful of what you eat. Don’t use traveling as an excuse to fall off the wagon.
