It’s the big season of glorious travel! We’ve got spring break, which may have come and gone – I’m so out of the loop now with kids, but anyways, once my nephew is in school I’ll be back in the game :-). But back to the topic at hand. We’ve got spring break, summer road trips and more spontaneous travel in our future. And for Cheeky, that always means that I’ve gotta be ready to pack a 35 lb skincare bag. I swear. That 50 lb weight limit is always wayyyyy too close on the airplanes because of my skincare bag. And god forbid I take it through security! I have a huge fear that the TSA will find something with too much liquid and I’ll have to throw it away. Lol. It’s seriously an anxiety. But anyways, traveling with skincare can be wild!
But what I really find important about traveling and skincare is that just because you’re on vacation and not following your normal routine as far as work and meals go, it shouldn’t mean that you take care of your skin any less. In fact, unless you’re at an obvious spa get away where we pray you’re getting a facial, skincare really should be amped up on vacation. This is the perfect time to pamper yourself silly. But getting back to my 35 lb skincare bag, the issue each and every time I travel has encouraged me to look for skincare kits that do a great job for the skin, are lightweight and for a change of pace, different than my daily regime. Sure, I wanna keep using my staples vacation, but it can also be a great way to check out a new brands and discover fun add-ons to your current routine that gets you all excited inside!
I’d be curious, how do you travel? Do you take all your skincare with you? Do you stuff it in those cute mini containers you get from Walgreens? Do you abort the mission completely and just bring sunscreen, lotion and face wash? Let Cheeky know how you prefer to travel, just for fun! I sometimes get really wild and leave my cleansing brush at home. For the most part, I don’t skip a beat. But that may be the quirky part of my personality coming out 🙂
If you’re wanting to get on this new skincare travel train I’m trying to do, then let’s take a look at some of our favorite skincare kits and lighter weight items that we can totally be obsessed with! Plus that means more room for shoes and clothes in our bags, so it’s really just a win, win!
