Slimming down your beauty routine for travel

Whether I am traveling for work or pleasure, one of the heaviest things in my bag is always my makeup. The glass bottles, mirrors and heavy foundation formulas always seem to tip my luggage just over where it needs to be, and I end up lugging it around with me wherever I go. When I add all my skincare products, the problem gets even worse. But you shouldn’t skimp on skincare just because you’re traveling.

One way to cut back on bulk is to think of a way you can condense your products. If you normally have a five-step routine for washing your face, consider getting some face washing wipes to eliminate the weight of your entire bottle of face wash. Many anti-aging products even come in convenient pads, which are easy to use and easy to travel with. Taking care of your skin was never so easy.

It’s a good idea to create a mini travel case for your skincare products. Investing in travel-size versions of your favorite items will get you through airport security, and will keep your skin youthful looking in the process. I love Hydroxatone’s Essential Beauty Box because it has mini versions of anti-wrinkle and moisturizing products. When your skin is healthy and hydrated, you might even find you don’t need makeup at all!
