Planning your escape?
Check out these travel-approved K-Beauty goodies that will guarantee glowing, healthy skin no matter where you end up!
When it comes to planning your holiday, you’ve got enough on you mind between choosing the perfect vacay spot, arranging the plane tickets, accommodation, checking your passport eight times and then getting to the airport five hours before you need to be there (thanks, Dad) – and that’s without mentioning everything else there is to get sorted!
With all the restrictions around liquids, aerosols and even powders in place at airports these days, it’s a good idea to only pack the essentials. We’ve combed through our K-Beauty favourites to find the best Korean skincare products to travel with.
Packing cosmetics into your cabin luggage is usually the best option if you’re flying long distance, as it means you can freshen up on your stopover, and you won’t be left in the lurch if your bag doesn’t arrive at your final destination at the same time as you do (which always seems to happen at the most inopportune times!)
If you do take liquids in your hand luggage, the containers must hold no more than 100ml, and be stored in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag. It may sound daunting, but we’ve found a combination of essential K-Beauty products and minis that will make packing your cabin luggage a sinch.
While it’s tempting to take everything you usually use in your skincare routine with you, this might mean you run out of room for other, more important things (like all your new purchases!)
A simplified routine, or mini versions of your favourite skincare products is usually the best way to go. If you don’t have time to decant them all yourself, here are some travel buddies that are ready to go:
The handy 3-in-1 formula purifies pores and controls sebum on the face using charcoal. Propolis and sorbital eliminate sweat and deodorize the body. Menthol cools and soothes and irritated scalp and skin.
This gentle all-in-one product tones, repairs and hydrates, making it perfect for condensing your skincare routine.
