We've all been there: rushing to pack our bags for a much-needed vacation, tossing in our favourite beauty products and essentials without much thought. But did you know that some of the most common beauty mistakes are made while travelling? From forgetting essential skincare products to overpacking makeup, it's easy to fall into the trap of compromising our beauty routines while on the go.
That's why I'm here to shed some light on the top travel beauty mistakes you might be making, and how to avoid them. So buckle up, grab your passport, and let's get ready to take your beauty game to the next level while you travel like a pro!
- Wipe out your cleansing woes with facial wipes on-the-go!
Using facial wipes instead of cleansers while travelling can be a game-changer for those on-the-go. But unlike you, the environment is not a big fan of facial wipes, since most makeup wipes aren't recyclable or compostable. The average makeup wipe takes a staggering 100 years to decompose. So instead of using your average facial wipes, go for bamboo facial wipes and cleansing balm which are eco-friendly.
They're perfect for quickly removing makeup, dirt, and oil, and can help refresh and hydrate your skin. Plus, they can save you precious suitcase space and weight. Just be sure to use bamboo facial wipes with water, and don't forget to follow up with a moisturizer to keep your skin happy and healthy while you're on the move! We do have a great recommendation for eco-friendly facial wipes and cleansing balm with amazing reviews:
- Going on a salty and boozy binge before a flight? That's plane reckless!
Ah, the classic combo of salty snacks and booze before or on a flight. While it may seem like a good idea at the time, it can leave you feeling like a dehydrated raisin on the plane. The salt can make you retain water and puff up like a balloon, while the alcohol can mess with your sleep and leave you feeling more jet-lagged than a time traveller. Skip the salty snacks and quench your thirst with water before jet-setting off to the airport. And don't forget to give your skin some love with a nourishing body oil right after your shower, so you can soar through the skies feeling as light and fluffy as a happy little cloud! Don’t know which body oil to use? Here is one of our all-time favourite:

- Don't let beauty chaos ruin your on-the-go game

Don't be a hot mess, keep your goodies neat and tidy while you impress. Invest in a good toiletry bag or travel case and avoid any potential catastrophe.
