Summer is not over yet! Are you travelling before the summer ends? Spending time at the beach, camping or flying off to a special destination to vacation with the family?
During the summer months, my daily routine often looks a lot different. We’re living our best lives, making memories and enjoying the summer sunshine as much as we can. But for me, this can also throw me off my skin care game!
Over the years, I’ve become pretty religious about my skin care routine – morning and night. Not only is it healthy for my skin, but it also serves as a daily mindful practice for me. In the summer, we’re often so busy having fun (or are away from home), that my skin doesn’t always get the same care or attention it deserves. And believe me, it lets me know! Dryness, redness and irritation, you name it – my skin can rebel. But I’ve got an action plan for summer travel skin care, and I’m here to share my secrets with you! Read on for my favourite tips to keep your skin happy and healthy while on the road (or in the air) this summer . . .
Secrets to Summer Travel Skin Care
Fun in the sun, busy schedules, road trips and time spent on very dry airplanes can leave us (and our skin) parched and dehydrated. It’s a free, simple solution – drink lots of water before, during and after your travels.
I know it’s not always easy! If you need the best tips on staying hydrated this summer, check out my post on the 25 easiest ways to drink more water. Staying hydrated is one of the quickest, simplest things you can do for your skin and not to mention, for your overall health (you’ll feel much better too). Are you a coffee drinker or frequent flyer? You might need these tips even more. Drink up! Your skin will thank you.
Take Off Your Makeup
You know the rule – never go to bed with your makeup on. Let’s be honest, we’re all guilty of this. I’ll raise my hand! But when I’m away from home, I don’t always have my full arsenal of cleansers, micellar water, toner, serums, and moisturizers with me. On my summer travels, I need a single, multi-purpose product that’s easy to pack. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Ultra Soft Cleansing Towelettes to the rescue!
I love these for my summer travel skin care. In one convenient step, they remove 99% of makeup with a mild, infused cleansing lotion that also tones your skin and leaves it lightly moisturized – with no heavy residue. Not even waterproof makeup (that many of us switch to for summer) stands a chance. Perfect for all skin types, even sensitive, they are the best for removing makeup on-the-go.
Spending lots of time at the beach or at the pool? If you’ve got plans in the water this summer and need more of a “no-makeup look” during vacation, these will help you there too. For me, these no-rinse cleansing wipes are especially perfect for at camp, a quick swipe and makeup is gone, face is clean – no sink required.
Here’s another quick tip – if you’re not starting with a full face of makeup (who needs that at camp?!), you probably don’t need an entire wipe. Cut them in half and they’ll last twice as long. Even better? You don’t have to worry about these amazing pre-packaged wipes spilling in your travel bag. I don’t travel without them!
Soothe Your Skin
As you may already know, I love Bio-Oil Skincare Oil. It’s uniquely formulated to soothe dryness, flakiness, irritation, scars, marks and more. Yes, it’s a miracle in a bottle! If you’re travelling, I find that Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is particularly effective at replenishing the effects that very dry airplane air – and spending extra time in the sun – can have on your skin.
I’m relieved to know that Bio-Oil Skincare Oil soothes sunburns, so I always keep it on hand when travelling in the summer – just in case. I love that it’s also available in a convenient, easy-to-pack travel size that fits perfectly in my carry-on bag. Gently massage it into any sun-kissed areas to prevent peeling and flaking, helping your skin to heal after summer fun – you’ll find it’s absorbed easily by even extra dry skin.

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. It’s a summer skincare non-negotiable (and winter too). It’s so important to take sun protection seriously – our health depends on it. I always wear sunscreen on my summer travels, and I hope you do too. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen is water resistant, lightweight, and non-greasy with broad spectrum SPF 70. It’s a bestselling sunscreen suitable for all skin types and decreases your risk of skin cancer (when used as directed).
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Ultra Soft Cleansing Towelettes, Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen are available on Amazon. Make them a part of your summer travel skincare routine for healthy, beautiful and glowing skin.
