From the recycled air to changing climates, looking after your skin is an absolute must when taking the sky. Not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up the products to pack for the journey, with each hard-working formula sure to have you reaching your destination with a glowy, dewy and refreshed complexion.

Lanolips are known for products that ease stressed skin and this specially designed mask is no different.

Just because you’re not outside, doesn’t mean you have to ditch the SPF. When travelling, opt for an SPF that also includes hydrating ingredients — like Naked Sundays’ best-selling Collagen Glow Creme, which is packed with watermelon extract to give added antioxidant-rich hydration and moisture.
We all know a serum goes a long way when our skin is feeling extra dry, and Go-To’s Much Plumper Skin has everything you’ll need to have your complexion feeling its very best. Packed with peptides, provitamin B5 and four types of hyaluronic acid, this formula will effortlessly quench and plump your skin (even while in transit).
If you’re hoping to catch a few zzz’s while on your trip, This Works Deep Sleep Breathe In is a travel companion you’ll never want to go without. Swipe this calming scent of lavender, vetiver and chamomile onto pressure points before dozing off for a sense of calm and serenity.
When travelling, we often forget to take care of other areas of our skin that can get dry — especially our hands. Add this Biossance hand cream into your travel essentials for for immediate relief and smooth, healthy hands.
