Picture it. You’re prepping for an upcoming holiday trip or vacation. You’re going through your list and you realize you haven’t considered how you’re going to keep up with your skincare routine while you’re away.
A quick search for a vacation checklist shows that most people will end up packing their toiletry bags last. That’s why items like toothpaste, sunscreen and lip balm are often absent when you finally set everything out on a hotel bathroom counter. Not to mention, last-minute fliers in a rush to pack may forget carry-on security screen limitations.
Whether you’re a well-prepared traveler who’s worried about packing extra products or an unprepared traveler who made the mistake of forgetting the rules, your skincare routine shouldn’t fall by the wayside when you’re trying to get your Glow Up on vacation!
The benefits of travel-sized skincare products
Still not convinced that you’re in need of travel-sized skincare products? Think again. Consider the following benefits before you start shopping for your next vacation.
- Maintain your routine. The most important benefit to making sure you take your skincare products with you everywhere you go is that you can maintain your routine. For those of us with sensitive skin, we can’t afford to drop our routines for a day, let alone weeks at a time. Avoid major breakouts or blemishes when you’re on vacation by making them a priority.
- Avoid replacement. Planning to pack a carry-on? After spending hundreds of dollars on your skincare or beauty products, the last thing you want to hear from a TSA agent is that you have to throw away every liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste container weighing over 3.4 ounces. (I’ve personally fallen victim to this situation and I can tell you, the tears were real.)
- Save space. Whether your travel companion is a carryon or a suitcase, travel-sized skincare products are guaranteed to save space. Some of us have five or more products we use for our day/night routines respectively. A smaller sized item will afford you significantly more room.
Smaller size = less money. It’s true, skincare products can be expensive. After all, sometimes beauty comes at a cost. However, smaller-sized products means you won’t feel as guilty when you’re at the checkout counter.
