As a college student, nothing says ‘tis the season’ more than wrapping up final exams, cleaning your room in preparation for the spring semester, and waiting in lengthy lines hoping to catch a flight to a getaway vacation or back to your hometown.
One of my favorite pre-holiday travel tasks is figuring out which skincare products I’ll want to use for my in-flight beauty routine. I need to make sure it’s travel-sized, hydrating, and easy to fit in my carry on, so I can easily apply it while I’m in the air, during a layover, or after I land for a quick refresh before getting picked up.
So, if you’re a frequent flyer searching for the best products to bring with you on your trip for the best traveling skincare routine, check out these phenomenal travel-sized products from Ulta Beauty. You can be sure they’ll make your time traveling stress-free, and will help you stay glowing, no matter how long your flight is!
The Banila Co Clean it Zero Brightening Cleansing Jelly Balm has a 3-in-1 effect where it hydrates, cleanses, and brightens the skin, which makes this product a perfect way to freshen up your skin midway through your flight. It’ll feel awesome to wash off the sweat and dirt from the airport and plane, and arrive at your destination bright and glowy. Just remember to pack a small towel so you can remove it easily!
Do you have a redeye flight? Or are you heading on a long flight to another country for the holidays? If so, then you’ll definitely want to get the OSEA Bestsellers Set For Face + Body. This set includes a facial cleanser, protective face cream, hyaluronic face serum, and body oil that are all one ounce or less, so you can easily keep up with your nighttime skincare routine for an overnight flight. It also comes stored in a vegan leather bag which is super convenient for storing the original set items and other skincare items in your carry-on.
Sunscreen is an absolute must-have product for anytime of the year! You should always try to reapply sunscreen throughout the day to keep your skin protected, so why not add another layer of it while you’re in the air? A favorite of mine is the Supergoop! Mini Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40, because in addition to protecting your skin from the sun, it can also be applied and worn under your makeup as a makeup primer.
Before heading out to the airport this month, I’m packing up the Hands Of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream from Philosophy in my carry-on. This product’s key ingredient is shea butter, and as someone who constantly has dry hands, it is a must-have skincare product. I know I’ll be using this product multiple times at the airport and on the plane to add the moisture back into my skin after washing my hands in the terminal bathroom or using the automatic hand sanitizer located throughout the gate.
Between sweating while carrying your heavy suitcase through the airport, the stinky airplane seats, and all the delicious snacks you eat while you’re in the air, the truth is that no one smells great after traveling. So, I recommend buying a travel-sized version of your favorite luxury scent, so you can quickly spritz yourself after you land, and smell fresh and clean before starting your holiday break. My signature scent is the Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum, which I love because of its warm flowery scents. I can’t imagine leaving it behind for the holidays!
For all of my naturalistas and curly headed ‘fros’ who are flying this season, consider adding the BREAD BEAUTY SUPPLY Hair-Cream Leave-In Curl Cream Mini to your travel hair care routine. With this 2-in-1 product you’ll be able to hydrate your hair while on-the-go, as it’s super easy to apply while you’re in the airport. All you have to do is add some water to your hair, spread the hair-cream evenly, and let it air dry!
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to purchase these travel-sized products at Ulta Beauty and be fully prepared for your next travel destination!
Happy holidays, everyone!
