Travel Essentials: Skincare, Body Care Products For Your Next Trip

1 March 2022

Wherever your travels may take you, your ability to travel light can help you enjoy your vacation. However, your self-care routines should not suffer – hence the importance of travel-sized skincare and body care. It’s important to pack versatile items ranging from clothing to your daily cleanser.

With this in mind – and wellness at our core – we suggest packing a few of these items into your suitcase for your next adventure. All of these products can be found through our e-commerce website – timetospa.com.


With skincare items, you will want to include a multitasking set of beauty products to make sure your skin looks its best during your trip. Opt for a few of the below-suggested products to do just that.

Cleanser and Hydrating Mask

When it comes to skincare during your travels, opt for items that can be used in multiple ways such as the travel-sized ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which can be used as a makeup remover, facial cleanser, and hydrating mask. The mask component is especially useful when you are in harsh climates – hot or cold. If your lips are chapped, slather on a bit as well.

Spot Treatments

If you find yourself struggling with acne, make sure to pack a spot treatment of your choice. You can opt for pimple patches or a liquid spot treatment. As they usually come in small sizes, you will likely not need to search for a travel-sized version of these. Always buy one for your travel bag and another for at-home use so you have one less thing to think about when packing.

Anti-Aging Moisturizer and SPF

If you are going to pack anything for your skin, moisturizer is crucial to keeping your skin healthy and glowing while on your vacation. Pair that with your preferred SPF and you are ready to enjoy those relaxing days. A fan favorite is the travel-sized Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – which moisturizes, lifts and firms the skin.

Glow-Boosting Balm and Hydrating Primer

Are your face and neck flaky and irritated from too long spent in the sun? Slather on the travel-sized Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm. Want to freshen up for dinner? The flash balm can be used as a primer to give you a smooth, glowing complexion – with or without makeup on top. Intensely hydrating and packed with anti-aging vitamins, this balm is a secret weapon in your travel beauty bag. It’s a powerful multipurpose product that can help your skin with a range of issues.

Bronzer and Eye Shadow

Whether you need to boost your tan, contour your cheekbones, give a warming glow to your eyes or use a warm tone lip stain, there is a little pot of gold that is a cruise guest favorite – California Sun Glow.

This versatile bronzing blush powder adapts to your natural skin tones. Simply use the brush to apply natural-looking color wherever you want a little bronze, such as your cheekbones, forehead, shoulders, and legs. Using a smaller brush, you can use it as a replacement for eyeshadow to create a warm glow around the eyes. For your lips, mix it with lip gloss to provide a bit of sparkle and shine.


Multi-Use Oil

Dry skin can be an unwelcome guest during your cruise vacation, so the best remedy is to keep your body moisturized – this is especially important if you spend more time in the sun or in extremely cold weather as both spectrums take a toll on your skin.

Opt for a body oil that can be used in a number of ways such as the travel-sized Frangipani Monoi Body Oil – which can be used for your hair, nails, and body. This small bottle packs a punch of hydrating benefits within each drop – and is suitable for all skin types. Did we mention the elegant aromas of coconut and frangipani?

Pre- and Post-Sun Care

If you are spending your days on the beach or enjoying outdoor adventures, make sure to keep your travel-sized sunscreen or sunblock on hand. With a plethora of options from sprays to sticks to balms, there is no excuse not to protect yourself from the sun’s rays. However, if for some reason you do end up with a painful sunburn, there is a travel-sized form of relief used by avid travelers – ELEMIS Skin Nourishing Milk Bath.

Formulated using milk protein (rich in vitamins, amino acids, and minerals) and plant collagen, it soothes and intensely hydrates the skin – helping it replenish after a long day in the sun. This is an especially good option if you have dry or sensitive skin.
