Depending on your country of residence and vaccination status, vacations are becoming a thing again! And since most of us have spent quarantine at home (and let’s be honest, probably in a sheet mask), we’re already shopping for travel-friendly beauty buys to stuff in a suitcase. Keep scrolling for some packable picks that will totally make the TSA cut. (Oh, and don’t forget your swimsuit and cover-ups, too!)
1. MOROCCANOIL Weightless Hydrating Mask, $16-38
Traveling can wreak havoc on your hair, especially if it’s a different climate, water type, etc. So make sure to pack something to show your strands some love, like this light hydrating mask!
You’ve been waiting on this vacation for a while, so make sure you’re packing something that ensures a 24/7 glow, like this three-piece set from Sunday Riley! With a gentle retinol oil, multi-treatment serum, and brightening Vitamin C serum, your skin will be in tip-top shape.
3. Indie Lee Clarity Kit, $29
If you prefer to travel a little light in the skincare department, meet your new fave three-step system! With a gentle cleanser, CoQ10 toner and a light oil-free moisturizer, your complexion will be just as calm as you are! A three-piece kit to cleanse, treat and hydrate your skin.
Something that works its magic on our skin while we sleep? Sign us up! This overnight facial oil serum smoothes skin texture overnight so you wake up to radiant skin (and hopefully with a side of room service) by morning.
Because flying isn’t exactly great for your skin, give it a quick post-flight pick-me-up with these cotton pads! They’re infused with protective antioxidants to cleanse, tone, and hydrate skin.
If you’re planning on visiting a different climate (especially a dry one), be sure to pack a hydrating face primer! This Nordstrom exclusive is infused with probiotic-based coconut water and skin revivers, and the setting spray also pulls double duty to hydrate and set.
PSA: Even if there aren’t sunny days in the forecast, you need SPF! In addition to your everyday sun protection, be sure that the delicate skin around your eyes gets an extra boost. In addition to its anti-aging benefits, this cream also contains SPF 30!
With the above being said, sometimes sunburns happen. And since we haven’t invented time machines yet, you may want to consider a soothing post-sun spray, like this all-natural formula.
9. TONYMOLY 5-Pc. Sheet Mask Set, $12
When it’s time to head back to the hotel or Airbnb, give your skin ten quick minutes of self-care with these adorable sheet masks! This bundle contains five masks to help to rejuvenate dull skin and boost radiance!
If your skin tends to get a little sensitive on the road, make sure your travel-friendly beauty arsenal contains a gentle cleanser! This option checks those boxes, but still effectively removes makeup, dirt, grime, and everything else a day of traveling will throw your way.
While you’re packing that suitcase, don’t forget about some chic (and totally comfortable) vacation dresses! (We’ve already rounded up our faves — you’re welcome!)
