Top five skincare products for travelling

If you’re always on the go; whether it’s via car, plane or train, it’s important to protect your skin from the changing environments whilst you’re travelling.

The humidity level on most airplane cabins is around 20%, which is less than half of what our skin is normally used to. This can result in dry and rough skin, as well as dry lips and itchy eyes. Contrastingly, when you get off the plane in your tropical holiday vacation, the heat and humidity may leave you more susceptible to break-outs.

Whether you’re planning to rest and relax on a white sand beach, or you’re embarking on an adrenaline-fueled adventure holiday; looking after your skin shouldn’t be difficult.

That’s why we’ve found the top travel-friendly skincare products to help you maintain youthful and supple skin on the go.
