We know what travelling does to you — it’s fun, makes you happy and all your issues back at home are the least of your concern. It’s your well-deserved getaway. Before indulging in total relaxation, expect the usual stressful planning and packing because you won’t want to forget anything. You would want to make sure you’re well-prepared and look good in every single photo you take on your trip.

However, your skin often gets neglected when you’re travelling. There are so many things to see and do but so little time. Plus, the change in air density, temperature and humidity affect your skin more than you think. Packing your entire skincare regimen is not really the best thing to do when you need space in your luggage for other souvenirs. When travelling abroad, you have to pick your favourites and make sure they fit the strict airport requirements — if you’re not checking in. There are so many factors needed to be considered and this should be the least of your concern. These skincare travel kits are your life-saver, or skin-saver as everything you need is in the kit.

Not ideal for you? Sure, there are other options. You can be extra-hardworking and decant your skincare products into little travel-sized bottles and jars. That requires a lot of dedication, time and work. Another option would be using the ones that are provided by the hotel, which may not be one that we would recommend if it’s a brand you’re unfamiliar with. You don’t want to risk your skin from potentially breaking out or react to skincare products that aren’t suitable for you.

Let’s just leave the ‘taking care of skin’ part to these skincare travel kits, shall we?
