Fall Travel Must-Haves

September 11, 2015

 

 

Travel often? Well, even if you don’t there is no denying our society is “skin obsessed.” It’s all about youthful glowing completions, injections & non-facial expressions.

Combine daily pollutants, genes, stress, diet and travel and you’ve just booked your ticket to early on-set aging. And we’re not just talking the average American family trip travel…daily road warrior stuff. Planes, trains, buses, traffic and weather can consistently play a major role in your overall appearance; not to mention your daily overall upkeep routine.

We’ve had a few industry friends ask what products are our go-to’s when traveling abroad or just state-to-state. So we’ve compiled a short list of our travel “must-haves” that have been tried, tested and approved to help keep us on track.

 

1.Dr. Jart+Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution™

 

WHAT IT IS:
A cellulose sheet mask that deeply hydrates, replenishes, and protects skin’s own moisture.  

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
Made of fine cellulose fiber, the lightweight, transparent mask allows pores to fully absorb essential nutrients and moisturizing ingredients for an ultimate hydration therapy. It immediately hydrates dry skin due to lack of moisture while aquaxyl—a patent moisturizing ingredient—enhances moisture retention and strengthen barrier function. Ultra-low molecular weight hyaluronic acid activates skin moisture with high absorption, and seaweed extract, which containins algeinicacids, moisturizes and removes impurities.  

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates 
– Phthalates

We’re kind of obsessed with this because it truly replenishes your skins own moisture that seems long gone after a 5 hour plane ride and we love that it does NOT contain parabens and sulfates, because who needs that stuff?

 

2. tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

 

WHAT IT IS:
A skin-softening scrub that sloughs away dryness with raw sugar and replenishes with pure maracuja oil for soft, smooth lips. 

 

WHAT IT DOES:
This powerful resurfacing lip scrub exfoliates lips, then provides instant hydration—quenching without a greasy feel. The raw sugar granules are suspended in the soothing, balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C, acting as a natural exfoliator to rid the dead cells that cause lips to chap and crack. As lips are exfoliated, maracuja oil simultaneously promotes hydration, cell recovery, and surface rejuvenation. Lips are left noticeably revitalized, fuller, and kissed with a hint of refreshing mint. 

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances 
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

Again, love products that don’t contain parabens and sulfates but we really carry this stuff everywhere! It’s tasty mint flavor combined with non-sticky formula allows us to keep our lips hydrated on the go.

 

3. IPKN Apple Pore Sun Cream 40SPF

 

WHAT IT IS:

 SPF 40+ Sun Cream with light and moisturizing texture. Improves and minimizes appearance of pores, help reduce the production of sebum, and provide long lasting moisture. 

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:

 Highly concentrated Apple Water extract with Natural Herbal ingredients will keep skin calm for smoother skin. Smart oil-free sun cream with color correcting base creates a smooth canvas for flawless makeup application

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED WITHOUT: 

Mineral-oil free formula

This stuff smells AMAZING! Plus it has a lightweight formula perfect for day-to-day use. We’d recommend using not only on your face but your hands as well!

 

4. Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli Water

 

WHAT IT IS: 

Neroli, extract of bitter orange blossom formulated for all skin types

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO: 

Soothing and hydrating mist spray uplifts the spirit and relaxes anxiety. Perfect for use on the face or body, to set makeup, soothe irritation, boost dehydrated areas, or provide a quick pick-me-up.

A few reasons why we love this: It really keeps skin super hydrated and smells so refreshing. Plus, we dig it because our good friends at Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort in Saint Lucia carries the full Kerstin Florian line in their new over-the-top amazing spa. http://www.windjammer-landing.com

 

5. Nature’s Sun Secret by AMG Naturally Inc.

 

WHAT IS IT: 

Contains a form of vitamin C called Ascorbyl phosphate, needed by the skin to increase collagen production naturally.  Research says exposure to UV light reduces type 1 collagen in the dermis in human skin and causes premature skin aging.

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO: 

Sunflower oil contains vitamin C for increasing collagen production. Constant sun exposure reduces collagen production resulting in an increase in wrinkles and sagging skin.

Literally this product is all kinds of natural and anything that protects the largest organ of your body, your skin, plus boosts collagen production. Sign us up!

 

6. Davines OI / Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion

 

WHAT IS IT: 

Hard-working potion that improves your hair for the short- and long-term.

 

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:  

This lightweight serum instantly tames frizz (thanks to protective silicone), providing the ultimate finishing touch for any hairstyle. To strengthen your mane over time, it comes packed with antioxidant-rich roucou oil that helps prevent hair aging and breakage.

Finally something that not only keeps hair strengthened but is packed with antioxidants to help prevent hair aging.

So there you have it travel friends, our short list of travel must have’s to keep you fresh, hydrated and naturally age appropriate.
