Travel Skin Care Routine 101: Why, What, When & How

Traveling this season doesn’t have to mean you ditch your regular, daily skin care routine until you’re back at home!

In fact, keeping up with your skin care is especially important when traveling, as stress and dry air on the plane can put your skin at risk for anything from aging to breakouts.

In this article, we’ll break it down so you know exactly why you need to take good care of your skin on your travels, what product we highly recommend, when you need to apply your products, and how to apply them for the best results.

So, take a break from your packing and read this article so you can show off sexy, glowing skin from the ski slopes to the beaches!


Healthy skin relies on a daily, healthy skin care routine using natural, organic products to really feed it with nutrients, and as a result, your skin will reward you by glowing with youthful radiance.

If you skip a day or two your skin is going to reflect this lack of care, so it’s important to keep up with your skincare regime on your travels.

Jet-lag, travel stress, and dry plane air can also all contribute to skin care issues so, in fact, your skin care routine becomes even more essential as you jet around to your destination.

What: Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum

Moisture is the name of the game, since hydrated skin truly is the key to youthful skin.

If you suffer from problem skin, you may shy away from the idea of applying oils to your skin, but organic oils and serums are usually brimming in antioxidants that will fight bacteria in the skin to help clear up blemishes, all while adding deep down hydration to keep your skin dewy, fresh, and protected against the elements.

This Vitamin C serum from Mad Hippie is a must-have product on your travels, no matter what your skin type, thanks to anti-inflammatory Vitamin C that will help to reduce and prevent breakouts, brighten the skin, and boost collagen for more youthful looking skin.

Vitamin C serums are easy to wear under your favorite organic makeup. Along with this serum, we recommend looking for an oil-based cleanser and an organic hydrating toner to help add a burst of refreshing moisture to your skin whenever you may need it. These three products are essential for your cosmetic bag!


Apply your serum day and night, and consider cleansing your skin just at night to remove the dirt and debris from the day. This helps to avoid over-cleansing which can strip the skin. Cleansing with water can also be a challenge on the plane, so one of our favorite tips is to cleanse with your toner! Simply spritz some toner onto a cotton pad, give your face a good wipe down, and then follow up immediately with another spritz of toner over your face and your Vitamin C serum.

Voila, it’s as simple as that!


When cleansing with an oil-based cleanser, simply massage the product into your face to help melt any dirt, makeup, or debris, and then use a hot washcloth to wipe the cleanser off your skin.

Spritz a good misting of your toner over your face and neck, and use your fingertips to gently press it into your pores.

While your skin is still slightly damp from your toner, add a few drops of your serum (the damp skin allows for even better absorption), and gently press, never rub, the serum into your skin until fully absorbed.

This routine may sound simple, but that’s the whole point! By investing in good quality products you can afford to keep it simple yet still enjoy beautiful results! Happy travels!
