Travel-friendly skincare for all your holiday trips

Travel-friendly skincare for all your holiday trips

By Carolina Malis 


It's finally that time of the year: orange and yellow leaves, coats, boots, everything pumpkin, hot cocoa… and oh, oh… skin freaking out. Understanding what you skin needs during this weather transition (especially considering it's going from fall to winter in a second), can be really hard sometimes, but at the end of the day it always comes down to one thing: keep your skin hydrated.

Thing is new season not only brings new temperatures and a renovated coffee shop menu but also travel. Thanksgiving trips, christmas and new year's journeys, even winter-time vacation… there's lots of travel involved in the next few months but in terms of skincare things change a little. While in the summer I was ready to go on a trip while I had mists, moisturiser and sunscreen on my skincare bag (besides a few more steps obviously), for winter we need to make sure we carry with us products that will not only hydrate and nourish but also protect our skin from the low temperatures.

Something that can be really helpful is bringing with you products that will accomplish more than just one goal, that way you spend less time in front of the mirror and more enjoying your relax time with friends and family.


While it can get a little hard to pick and choose the skincare items that will make the cut - don't tell me you haven't spent more-than-socially-accepted time in front of your skincare cabinet trying to make the decision - Neogen has a few items that can make this whole thing way easier and I wanna share those with you! Here's some of my absolute favorites whenever I'm traveling:

Neogen Dermalogy White Truffle Oil stick

*White Truffle Oil Stick: I've said it before but I'll repeat it as many times as it's necessary: my skin changed the day I realized oils were not the enemy. Nowadays, no matter the season, the weather or the time of the month, I just can't live without facial oils. Of course, some of them work better depending on temperature, season and skin conditions, but overall there's always at least one or two oils I use on the daily. One of my absolute favorite oils for every season is the Neogen White Truffle Serum in Drop Oil. It's just P-E-R-F-E-C-T for my skin. Unfortunately I cannot bring the bottle with me when I travel, but thankfully Neogen came up with a solution for that: the White truffle Laycure Oil Stick.

This super hydrating oil stick is formulated with white truffle oil - extremely rich in vitamin B - which repairs skin and helps with texture. Beside its nurturing and moisturizing perks, this formula protects your skin from environmental damage and the effects of stress, so truly a godsend for traveling time.


Neogen Real Fresh Green tea Cleansing stick

*Green Tea Cleansing Stick: cleansing is always important but when traveling you need to make sure your skin stays free of any waste, makeup traces, sweat or any other toxins even more than regular, as your skin is already under stress just because of the trip itself. To continue on the sticks path, Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick is a travel-friendly, all-in-one cleanser that's formulated with 13 - yes, thirteen! - different and gentle natural oils that can breakdown makeup and dirt, plus natural green tea leaves - which you can actually see on the stick - that help exfoliate your skin, all while keeping you its pH levels under control. Only thing you need to do is twist up, swipe over damp skin and then massage with your hands, to finally rinse off with lukewarm water and TADA! Clean, smooth and waste-free skin in a minute. While I still like to use a cleansing oil or makeup remover before going for this, I think it works great as a one-step cleanser for days when I'm not wearing any makeup.


Neogen H2 Dermadeca serum spray

*H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray: Finally, one of my absolute favorites - that I may or may not have forced many of my friends to buy. This serum in spray - yes, you read that right - is one of Neogen's most advanced creations in my opinion. A super fine serum mist that repairs, soothes and hydrates skin truly in matter of minutes. The formula contains such ingredients as niacinamide and vitamin C for brightening and anti-aging purposes, centella asiatica to calm redness, inflammation and acne, and collagen to give your skin that plump it can be missing, specially when traveling.


While I do use this products on a daily basis, I certainly can't live without them when on a trip. I still add a sheet mask or a creamy rinse off mask to the formula but these definitely have become staples on my travel bag. Do you have some favorite travel skincare essentials?

NEO I TRENDING<br>Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Before falling in love with K-beauty, and way before it changing my life and skin forever, I was a very lazy person when talking skincare routines. I had this 3-steps set my dermatologist prescribed but I was not consistent, and washing my face turned into something controlled by my mood. Now, looking back to those dark days I just can't believe how many times I went to bed with makeup on or applied my treatment cream without first washing my face, something that now just thinking about it makes me feel like I’m inside a horror movie (yes, I’m dramatic like that).

A Spray Serum Can Be The Answer To All Your Winter Skincare Needs

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many years I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.

The one and only sheet mask you need for your winter routine

For the past few years thousands or thousands of new beauty trends have showed up. There are ones that last, others that come and go, but there’s one trend that arrived in this world to stay for eternity: sheet masks. At this point I think we all have tried at least 1 sheet masks in our lives, am I right? There are really simple ones, luxury ones, for brightening, for aging, for wrinkles, for hydration… there’s a sheet mask for everyone and their mothers out there. But there’s so much more to these godsends than just a cotton layer you put on your face and take selfies with.

Moisture Up! Add this moisturizers to your routine to fight back dryness

Let's face it, winter is quickly approaching and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin too. I don't know about you but I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on all the mist bottles I’ve used in the past month.
