How to Pack Your Skincare Products for Travel


Here are some essential tips on how to pack your skincare products for travel that will keep your skin healthy and looking great no matter where you go.

So you’ve got your flight and accommodation booked, and your travel documents prepared. All that’s left to do is to pack your bags, including your daily essentials for skin care on your carry-on. This can be tricky because most airlines have a restriction on liquid size.

Travelling can also be stressful on your skin, especially now that we have to wear a face mask. When coupled with the recycled air on the plane, the air-conditioning of your hotel, and the sudden change of weather and environment, it can add to the burden on your skin.

With that said, there are some things to consider when packing your skincare products. Here are some tips for packing a skincare travel kit that will keep your skin healthy and looking great no matter where you go.

Tips to Travel with Your Skincare Products

  1. Pick out the basics

When you pack your skincare kit for travel, always keep to the basics so that your skin will remain healthy throughout. This means no time for experiments because you might have a bad reaction, which can affect your travel experience.

It’s best to pack your daily go-to cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen. If necessary, decant your daily essentials for skin care into smaller travel containers and pack them all together in a pouch. Prepare another set of skincare travel kit and pack it into your carry-on so that you can still take care of your skin even if your luggage is lost.

  1. Swap the liquids for solids

As mentioned earlier, most airlines have restrictions on liquid size. In this case, you can swap certain skincare products for the solid version. For instance, your liquid sunscreen for a roll-on sun protection cream.

Swapping your toiletries such as your body wash for a bar soap can also reduce the amount of liquids you have to carry. This will make it easier for you to pack and you don’t have to worry about the airline’s liquid restrictions.

  1. Consider the climate at your destination

Travelling to a new destination will always throw your skin off balance because your skin takes time to acclimatise. As the changes don’t occur overnight, you will need to reconsider bringing some of your skincare products.

For instance, if you’re travelling somewhere warm, you will need to pack more moisturisers and sunscreen to minimise the effects of sunburn and prevent your skin from peeling. Similarly, travelling somewhere cold will require you to pack rich, oil-based products to prevent dry skin.

Benefits of Organising Your Skincare During Your Travel

Organising your skincare kit for travel can be difficult because of limited space and luggage restrictions. However, if you plan ahead, a skincare travel kit like Dr Goh’s Daily Essential Kit can make it much easier to manage your beauty routine while on the go.

Besides, having a skincare travel kit is a great way to organise your skin products, even your skincare for sensitive skin, and make sure that you have all the essentials for your skin in one place. This is especially important when you’re travelling and you want to be able to pack light.

Another benefit of organising your skincare travel kit is that it will be easy to access. After all, storing them in transparent containers allows you to see what’s inside and find what you need quickly.
