Skincare and travel are sometimes two things that don’t mesh well together. While it may be easy to forget about your daily skincare routine while traveling by plane or car, you’ll feel better in the long run if you remain consistent and keep your skin glowing and feeling good.

These 10 skincare products are here to make sure you keep your skin healthy and radiant while visiting your favorite destinations. 

1. Sweet Chef Ginger + Vitamin C Bright Spot Tonic

A great blend of ginger, Vitamin C, and Turmeric, Sweet Chef knew what they were doing when they created the Ginger + Vitamin C Bright Spot Tonic.

The mixture of ingredients makes a lush jelly that smooths across the skin, leaving it vibrant and clear. With over 40 antioxidant properties, this skin tonic is perfect for restoring your skin if you go days without washing your face or after an evening of wearing makeup. 

2. Glow Recipe Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum

Made to brighten all skin types, Glow Recipe’s Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum is excellent for anyone who wants to brighten dullness without experiencing any harsh irritation.

This serum is made with five forms of Vitamin C and guava fruit extract and seeds, making it a powerhouse when it comes to providing the perfect vacation glow. Glow Recipe also has a slew of amazing products designed to reawaken the glow in all skin types. 

3. Wishful Skin Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub

Huda Beauty brand Wishful Skin is known for bringing the best when it comes to skincare and their Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub is no exception.

Made with pineapple and papaya enzymes, Yo Glows buffs away dead skin and dirt, providing immediately visible results. You will be shocked by how much clearer your skin will be after using this exfoliator. 

4. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil

If the winter months make your skin dry and irritated, Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil is a great option to get clean, clear skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

Made with a blend of coconut and argan oil, this cleansing oil is like nectar of the gods for the face and restores it from any dryness it has incurred overnight or throughout the day. The face wash is very gentle and leaves the skin looking nourished and refreshed. 

5. Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream

After a day of relaxing on the beach or swimming in the pool, it’s important to take time to rehydrate and replenish your skin.

Although Mary Kay may seem like something you’d find in your granny’s medicine cabinet, the brand’s Extra Emollient Night Cream is one of the best products to use, especially if you suffer from dry skin. Suitable for all skin types, the cream can also be used on hands, elbows, and feet. 

6. The Melanated Bar Face Crack

With The Melanated Bar products rising in popularity amongst black millennials, it’s hard to choose just one of their products to make our favorites list. However, if we had to pick, their Rosehip Serum would be number one on our list.

Known as ‘Face Crack’, this lightweight serum is a dry oil that won’t leave your face greasy. It also is packed with vitamins and minerals that fight acne and promote healthy skin cell growth. 

7. Youth to The People’s Superfood Cleanser

A rich gel-like face wash, Youth to The People’s cold-pressed Superfood Cleanser is one of the best facial cleansers you can invest in.

An award-winning formula, the Superfood Cleanser prevents clogged pores and promotes a pH balance for the skin. With antioxidants from kale, spinach, and green tea, this face wash is designed to give your skin the ultimate boost while on vacation.

8. Jade Roller


Nothing is worse than applying makeup to skin that is puffy and irritated from a rigorous skincare regimen. A simple jade roller can resolve this easily. A tool used in ancient Chinese medicine, jade rollers are great for reducing swelling in your face and aid in stimulating the Lymphatic system.

Keep your jade roller in the freezer to get the maximum benefit from the tool. 

9. Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum

A toner and serum rolled into one, Rihanna did us all a service when she created the Fenty Skin Fat Water Toner Serum.

Designed to make pores smaller and reduce oil on the skin, this product is great for providing nourishment and hydration without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Its thick texture rolls onto the skin like butter, and it has the sweet aroma of cherries and sun-kissed fig. 

10. Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Facial Cleansing Pads

If you have acne or breakout-prone skin, Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Cleansing Pads may be a great addition to your skincare routine.

Made with acne-fighting ingredients and calming soy extract, these cleansing pads are great for exfoliating after a long day or for cleansing the skin after removing makeup.
