Five Inside Out Beauty Travel Essentials
- Created: 08 November 2017 08 November 2017
There are a few travel essentials which are a must-have when I am on the go. I do feel that they make an incredible difference in ensuring that my skin, mood and energy are optimal.
There is so much research now showing that the gut and skin axis are intricately linked. So when travelling, to ensure my skin and belly are happy I always travel with a probiotic which contains the Saccharomyces Boulardii strain. This helps with the challenge of maintaining good bacteria in the gut when eating and drinking foods abroad. It also works wonders for travel bloat.
One of the quickest ways to reverse the stagnant feeling which comes from many hours in a plane is having a restorative bath. I always pop some travel size bath salts into my suitcase. They contain natural Epsom salts which provide a great dose of magnesium trans-dermally to soothe sore muscles and relieve tension. Adding essential oils such as rosemary lavender can also help with jet lag.
Cabin air can really take its toll on skin moisture and hydration levels so I love to have a travel mist in my carry-on luggage which I spray continuously throughout the flight. I ensure the mist provides glycerin which is incredibly effective in sealing in moisture levels so that you hop off the plane looking radiant.
Having a multi-purpose balm in your bag at any time can solve a few problems in one go. Balms which are rich in nourishing oils can be the antidote to everything from dry lips, unsightly cuticles and dry hands and nails. I even use this under the eyes to nourish and brighten.
Sheet masks really are a jet setter’s best friend. Not only are they super light and easy to carry, they are very effective at hydrating the skin and providing beauty salon results on the go. The reason they work so well is that they provide an occlusive barrier so that the extracts found in the mask serum deeply penetrate the skin. Just use them on clean skin so they work more efficiently and refrain from using them if sitting next to beauty novices on airplanes – they can look a bit scary!
