It’s summer, which means it is the best time of the year: vacation season! When you are traveling, it can seem tricky to keep your skin fresh. Between changing climates, environments and rushing from one place to another, it is valuable to have a plan to protect your skin. Not sure what travel makeup essentials to pack or routines to follow?
Follow these four key travel and beauty tips to keep your skin glowing throughout your entire trip!
1. Decide which items are carry-on travel essentials
If you are going away for longer than a night or two, chances are you’ll check a bag and have a carry-on. So what should you carry onto the plane? Make sure you follow the TSA makeup rules and limit your carry-on products to the basic beauty products for air travel. Any liquids must be in re-sealable containers that are 3.4 ounces or less, and all containers must fit in one clear, plastic, re-sealable 1-quart-sized bag.
Don’t worry, all our product recommendations fit these requirements, including SeneCosmetic LashSense Waterproof Mascara. It will keep your lashes looking long and thick, and it is the best cosmetics for travel. It is perfect for preventing smears - even after you fall asleep on the plane!
2. Stay Moisturized on the Beach
Aside from carrying makeup on a plane, you are probably worried about looking good while you’re on your trip, too. Perspiration, heat and sunshine all draw moisture from your skin, but SeneDerm Climate Control will keep your face from drying out. The product hydrates your skin with a moisturizing spritz of natural oils, which gives you a fresh look on the beach. It also has beneficial ingredients like hyaluronic acid, a powerful moisture-binding element. According to Dr. Oz, products must contain hyaluronic acid in order to be a truly “anti-aging” product.
You should also hydrate your lips using LipSense with Moisturizing Gloss. The natural shea butter will prevent damaged and dry lips all day long. You will love the variety of pearl, matte and shimmering finishes.
3. Protect Your Skin
Don’t forget to wear sunscreen to protect your skin! We all know that prolonged exposure to the sun can cause dark spots, wrinkles, over-drying, and sometimes even skin cancer. Looking our best means taking the time throughout our days to care for our skin.
Use MakeSense Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer to protect your face from mild rays during the day. It offers a mechanical shield of sun protection equivalent to SPF 15 and is suitable for all skin types.
In the evening, apply Senegence EyeLuminator to keep your eyes looking bright. Its sweet almond oils, vitamins A & E, avocado and natural jojoba will nurture the soft skin around your eyes and diminish wrinkles.
In addition, if your skin is prone to redness after a few hours under the sun, be sure to apply SeneDerm Climate Control and SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Lotion before going to bed! You will see a tremendous change in the morning.
4. Apply Natural Looking Makeup
For a simple, beautiful look, stick to the beauty essentials! A light moisturizer like the MakeSense Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer discussed above will provide you with sheer coverage that corrects the color of your skin. It comes in light and medium shades. The moisturizer counteracts redness and decreases age spots. Not to mention, it works well on all skin types, including those that are prone to breakouts.
MakeSense CC Cream is water-resistant, but if you want to have a totally waterproof makeup, choose MakeSense Foundation – which comes in a variety of shades. Now, all you need is to put on some lip gloss and mascara, and you’re ready for a night out!
