This time of year, it seems like I’m packing up my suitcase nearly every weekend (and let’s face it, leaving it in some sort of half-unpacked state on the floor of my bedroom in the interim). Traveling so much can really take a toll on my skin and my holiday spirit, so I thought I’d share some of my hacks for taming the beast that is holiday travel.
1. Keep it mini. Nothing drags you down (literally) quite as much as an overstuffed, did-you-pack-bowling-balls-in-here suitcase. As a skincare addict, it can be quite a challenge to pare down your routine to fit in a single toiletry bag. Luckily, we’ve introduced deluxe-size minis and travel sizes of many of our products for this exact reason. Swap the full size for these guys to lighten your load.
2. In the bag. Not only can minis help you save space and weight, they can help you save time too. I keep my minis packed in my toiletry bag, so they're ready to go whenever I am. Plus this saves me the stress of worrying if I forgot anything at home.
3. Refill, anyone? Don’t toss your mini and travel sizes once you run out. Refill and reuse them! Not only does this genius tip save you money, it’ll help reduce waste. (We’re pretty into that, if you hadn’t noticed.)
4. Don’t fly dry. Flying is ideal for long journeys home for the holidays, but dry airplane air can wreak havoc on your skin’s hydration. Stash our individually-wrapped Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Cloths in your carry-on for a mid-flight refreshment that doesn’t require handing over your credit card to a flight attendant. Layer it with our new travel-size Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer and you’ve got yourself an ultra-hydrating cocktail your skin will drink right up.
5. Destination: hydration. You’ve made it. Your skin is glowing. Your bag has room to spare (ideal for hauling your presents back home). Now it’s time to share the love. Give the gift of clean beauty this year with mini and travel-size gifts that are perfect for popping into your loved ones’ stockings.
