4 Beauty Items You Need To Always Travel With

4 Beauty Products You Need to Travel with

These products saved me. Literally. I don’t know what I would have done without all of these. My skin is very, VERY dry and these helped a lot with the maintaining of my dehydrated skin. The long flights definitely put a hold on my skin’s texture and feel and having these products in my bag made them feel moisturized and soft.

1. Evian Mineral Water Spray – I fell asleep a lot on the plane. And after each of those naps, this spray helped me a lot. I even sprayed it on my hands to give them a refreshed feel. I also have smaller ones in my makeup bag. I’ll definitely be repurchasing!

2. Simple Skincare Makeup Remover Wipes – One of my beauty staples. I didn’t wear any makeup while traveling, but having these wipes also helped with refreshing my face after sleeping. The Mister even liked it as well.

3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose – The great thing about this lip treatment is that it has SPF 15 and last forever. It smells so nice and I didn’t feel completely bare-faced while on the plane wearing this. Loved the little color it gave me as well.

4. Philosophy Hands of Hope Hand Cream – This hand cream definitely helped with sealing in the moisture of my dry skin. I even put a little bit on my face, but of course I wouldn’t recommend it to you because it’s a hand

As you can see, mostly everything in this post is about one word: MOISTURE! Remember to always drink plenty of water on any long distance . Dehydration can ruin your trip so make sure you drink up and use these tools.

What other beauty products do you make sure you have on a long trip? I’d love to hear!

What To Do Before Spending Money On Expensive Beauty Products

I thought my skin was fine. I made the decision to make sure that I invest more in skin products to help with preserving the skin I have. I’m on the right track, huh? Not so much.

I was so excited when Amerejuve MedSpa asked me to experience their Microdermabrasion skin rejuvenation service. Before I said yes, I did a quick research and realized that my plan for my beauty regime that I made for myself was all wrong. Here’s what I learned that I need to do:

1. Talk to a Amerejuve MedSpa Specialist

Sometimes we just need to talk to someone who really knows the foundation of beautiful skin. I talked with the manager and we had a one-on-one discussion of how this could benefit my skin, what I was going to experience, and what I wanted for my skin. We discussed how acne occurs and how to prevent wrinkles. We also discussed my skin type and how this would effect my skin in the future. Do your research and talk with an Amerejuve specialist to consult you on your skin needs.

2. Rejuvenate Your Skin With Microdermabrasion

After my consultation, I felt confident that this microdermabrasion service was just what I needed. My specialist led me to the room and made sure I was comfortable. The room was so relaxing. The light was very low and the bed was small, but comfortable. My specialist was very knowledgeable and told me every single thing that I would be facing. She cleaned my face thoroughly and made sure she was gentle on my skin. I was nervous at first because I didn’t know exactly how the machine would feel on my skin, but it was not bad at all. When I was done, my skin was literally beaming! It was shiny, smooth and very soft to touch. You can say my face felt like a baby’s bottom!

3. Enjoy Your Beauty Products

Now that your face is smooth and the dead skin has been removed, your beauty products can do the magic power it says it can do. Exfoliation is needed for your skin to maintain healthy skin. No need to spend so much money on products that you regret buying later. After your microdermabrasion service, your beauty products can be a true investment.
