10 skincare essentials you need for travel.

Everybody knows that travelling can sometimes be hard on your skin, also it gets really difficult to carry all of your skincare items around the world. These 10 skincare essentials are in travel size and they are absolutely fabulous.

1.  A hydrating, cleansing makeup remover.

Estée Lauder 
Perfectly Clean Triple-Action Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover $28
A good makeup remover is an absolute necessity, always. Whether you're travelling or not you need to be regularly using a good makeup remover.

2.  A serum.

Ole Henriksen

Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster

I am the biggest fan of serums and this Ole Henriksen one is absolutely magical. It is formulated without any parabens,sulpahtes and phthalates. It is mean to revitalise and brighten your skin. Basically it makes you look more alive, as weird as that sounds. 

3. A Mud Mask

Omorovicza $120

Deep Cleansing Mask

Mud masks are the biggest rage right now and i can completely understand why. They are so good for your skin and completely remove all the yuck-iness ( yes, i just said that) that you have accumulated throughout the day.

4. An exfoliator.

Laura Mercier $50

Almond Coconut Milk Scrub

Exfoliators are like the best skincare invention ever. Enough said.

5. A lip scrub.

Fresh $22.50

Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

My lips tend you get really rough and chapped easily so what i like to do is scrub them really well and then after apply a thick layer of a heavy moisturizer and let it sit for a while. After this your lips will be flushed and soft.

6. Your favourite moisturizer.

Clinique  $26

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Everyone has been at that stage where they feel like they've tried out literally every moisturizer ever and then they finally find the one and it's like a match made in heaven. 

7. Sunscreen.

MDSolarSciences $30

Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen

This is a must and for some reason, literally every time i travel, i always forget to carry sunscreen.

8. Argan Oil

Josie Maran $48

100 percent Pure Argan Oil

Okay this is for your hair but it's so good that it's worth mentioning. It literally makes your hair softer than silk. 

9. Rose Water.

I was recently introduced to rose water as a skincare item by my aunt and oh my god, it is the best thong that has ever happened to me. It literally is perfect. The purer the rose water the better. I keep it in a spray bottle and go around spritzing it whenever i feel like on my face. It has made it softer, smoother, more blemish free and my skin just looks better! I can't stress it enough, if you have dry skin like me, go but rose water right now. I keep it in a small spray bottle so that it's much easier for me to carry it around and i just fill it up when i feel like i'm running out. The best thing about it is that it is like a no fuss product, you know? like i spray it on top of my makeup and my makeup stays fine. Just don't try and dab it in like you do with moisturizer, just let it sit and absorb into the pores on it's own.

So there it is! My favourite beauty essentials! Please do keep in mind that the ones that i have chosen are small, and if they aren't then you do get travel sizes.
