Did you know that 115.6 million Americans are traveling this year for the holidays? According to AAA, that’s the highest number in almost 20 years! Over 105 million plan to travel by car to visit their loved ones. Are you one of them? This list of beauty traveling tips will come in handy.
Micellar water is your skin’s best friend on a road trip. Wash and tone your face all in one! You can mist your face with it in a spray bottle to revive dried-out makeup while in transit. This Cucumber and Blue Lotus Micellar Water Cleanser has the ideal oil balancing blend to maintain healthy skin tone.
A lightweight SPF moisturizer is essential on the go. UV rays impact your skin in the winter too! Car and airplane windows can intensify their effects. But many sunscreen moisturizers contain harmful chemicals. Fortunately, Indie Beauty Market offers natural and organic SPF moisturizers with skin safe ingredients. These special daily moisturizers are like having a moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup primer in one. Use them with confidence any time of the day!
Pack Beauty Smart
If you’re not sure how to bring your full sized moisturizer, follow this clever life hack. Squirt the moisturizer into the cupholders of a contact lens case. Voila! It’s like your own mini beauty compartment, and it saves space. This is also a great tip for storing creams, scrubs, makeup, and other gel-like solids.
Not many people think of face masks while they travel, but they work wonders for perking up tired skin. Oh, and another thing...bring your own shampoo and conditioner. Yes, there’s free samples in most hotels. But the truth is they’re usually not good quality, or natural to say the least. You know what works for your hair. Do it a favor and use the good stuff!
Merry and Bright, Road Trip Style
We all know how the rigors of travel are far from flattering to your complexion. But a few ‘cheat’ items can brighten your spirits. A mood mist is great for times when the kids fight or you’re racing for the flight connection. Have a convenient nourishing multi-use balm on hand to use anytime, too. It’s your best friend at combating dehydration from car air conditioning, weather, musty hotels, and anything else you encounter.
Lip gloss is more hydrating and travel-friendly for your pucker than lipstick. And when you’re ready for company, spread a liquid shimmer foundation over to energize your face. Refresh with a multipurpose face and body oil, and you might not even need makeup. You’ll look like you’ve been walking in a winter wonderland when your loved ones see you!
Of course, there’s always the dilemma of packing holiday gifts. Simplify it this year by gifting specific items instantly on Indie Beauty Market to generate a special code that you can print out, email, or message to the recipient. This is a great idea for airplane travelers! Not sure what to give them? You can’t go wrong with gift cards!
