We Made You a Skincare Packing List, So You Don’t Have ToMay 30, 2023
Summer vacations are full of fun. Packing for them? Not so much. That’s why we’ve rounded up a few of our summer beauty essentials to help make the process easier. From a caffeine-infused eye cream that can help soothe jet-lagged, puffy eyes to a tinted skin serum that’s a breeze to apply, keep reading for our travel-friendly favorites for beach trips and more.
Your Summer Skincare Packing List
This kit comes with travel-size versions of two of Youth to the People’s most beloved products: the Superfood Cleanser, an antioxidant-rich gel that cleans the skin without stripping, and the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream, a lightweight hydrator. Depending on your skin concerns, you can also opt for the Plump It Up kit or The Youth System 6-Piece Minis Kit.
There’s no quicker way to perk up your skin after a long flight or drive than with a few spritzes of a facial spray. We love this rose petal and aloe-infused mist, which helps balance and soothe every skin type.
Multitasking products are key for packing light, which is why we love this serum-moisturizer-sunscreen hybrid from Garnier. It’s available in a variety of formulas to target different skin concerns, including vitamin C to brighten, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and cannabis sativa seed oil to reduce the look of pores.
Of course, it’s important to pack a standalone sunscreen too. This formula is infused with hyaluronic acid to draw moisture into the skin and contains broad-spectrum SPF 30 to protect against UV rays.
Traveling with kids? Make sure their skin stays sunburn-free too with the help of this gentle, water-resistant and oxybenzone-free sunscreen. The cream formula blends in easily and feels lightweight on the face and body — all the better for avoiding a meltdown on vacay.
You may not even need foundation on vacation, but just in case, we recommend picking up a mini bottle to stash in your makeup bag. The Luminous Silk formula is notoriously lightweight and glowy, with a buildable medium-coverage finish. It’s available in 40 shades.
If you’re craving coverage but want to skip foundation, this lightweight tinted serum is the perfect happy medium. It comes in ten luminous shades that are sheer enough to match a variety of skin tones and contains hyaluronic acid for an extra boost of moisture.
If you’re traveling by plane, chances are your skin will feel pretty dry and dehydrated. Make sure to bring moisture back to the sensitive under-eye area with a nourishing eye cream. This one actually works to reduce the appearance of existing dark circles over time.
The last thing you want spoiling your trip is an unexpected pimple. Stop the breakout in its tracks with a dab of this salicylic acid-infused gel, which helps to clear and prevent new spots from popping up. The travel-size tube is easy to toss in your makeup bag and carry on the go.
Moisturizer is key for any skin type, and we love this travel-size tub. The cream contains niacinamide, squalane, a peptide-lipid complex and hyaluronic acid, delivering soft, smooth skin and hydration that lasts for up to 48 hours.
