The Best Green Beauty Tips for Your Next Vacation

Whether you’re jetting off to a lush landscape or taking a fun road trip, you still want to look and feel your best. The great news is that you don’t have to sacrifice your green beauty routine while you’re away from home.  

In this article, we’ll share some helpful tips for taking care of your skin and makeup while you travel, so you can look and feel good wherever you end up!

Refresh and rehydrate with toner

Toners may sometimes be underrated, but we love them for their versatility.

We adore Suki Skincare’s toners, because they are full of great ingredients and they feel great on your skin. If you have oilier skin, try Suki’s Clarifying Toner, and just about everyone will love this Strengthening Toner.

Toner is the ideal multi-purpose product on the road. It adds a burst of refreshing hydration and an infusion of nutrients whenever your skin needs a little boost, at any time of the day. It preps your skin to better absorb your skin care products and it even helps to set your makeup for the day!

Travel sizes are your essential travel partners

Forget about trying to pack a bunch of full-sized bottles in your bag, you need space to bring back those special purchases!

Instead, consider purchasing travel-sized bottles and filling them with all your favorite products so you don’t miss out on any of your favorites and they won’t take up too much space. Alternatively, try our best-selling Trial and Travel Kit by Dr. Alkaitis. This kit has everything you need for great skin and if you haven’t tried it before, you just may find your latest obsession.

Skincare for the minimalist

If your small suitcase leaves you wanting to minimize the number of products you take with you, try a cleansing oil. Living Libations’ Best Skin Ever oils cleanse, remove makeup and moisturize all at the same time. Try Seabuckthorn or Frankincense. Best of all, you can use these amazing oils to moisturize any part of your body, and they’re especially great for hydrating your skin after being in the sun.

Hydration is key

Nothing saps moisture out of the skin faster than dry, plane air so keeping your skin hydrated by drinking enough water and applying a hydrating product is super important.

A facial oil is an amazing “one and done” moisturizer for any skin type. We adore this gorgeous Suki Nourishing Facial Oil to add a deep dose of hydration and beautiful luminosity to even the driest skin, thanks to an infusion of silky plant-based oils and powerful antioxidants.

Don’t forget the SPF

SPF is your best friend during your time away!

It protects your skin against harmful UV rays that can speed up the signs of aging, contribute to hyperpigmentation, increase your risk of skin cancer and seriously dry out your skin.

Opt for a chemical-free mineral-based SPF of at least 30 or higher and cover all areas of exposed skin. We love Living Libations’ Everybody Loves the Sunshine, with Zinc, and its travel-friendly version in a little stick, Everybody Loves the Sunshine Beach Balm. Perfect for throwing in your bag, whether you’re heading to the beach or touring a new city.

Carry one potent active treatment

Even though you’re out exploring the world, you may want to choose just one potent treatment that will help your skin look its radiant best all holiday long.

We adore vitamin c for its skin brightening and protective properties, so you have to try this Agent Nateur’s Holi(C), which is in powder form that you can mix with water, toner, or your moisturizer for glowing, protected, radiant skin. Plus, the bottle is small enough to make it travel-friendly!

Makeup for the road

The best way to minimize your makeup routine is to take multi-purpose products with you. Let’s start with the basics. Pack a little powder concealer, a gorgeous mascara, a fantastic lip gloss or lip tint, and you’re good to go! (Just don’t forget to apply sunscreen first!). Take along a versatile eye makeup palette, and a blush that includes a highlighter, or a cream blush that doubles as lipstick.

(Looking for a three-in-on makeup solution? This stunning Aether Beauty eye palette even includes shades that can double as blush and highlighter!)

For travel, you can get by with two or three good makeup brushes. An eye shadow brush that can be used for concealer and highlighter (wipe the previous product off first), and a Baby Buki brush that you can use with powder foundation and blush. If you want to use the darker palette shades as eyeliner and a bit of water, add an eyeliner and smudge brush, which is another versatile tool.

As you can see, seeing the world doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your skincare or makeup routine. Follow our tips and you’ll be all set for a radiant vacation. All you have to do now is pack your bags!
