Lina's Summer Travel Beauty Essentials
Are you traveling anywhere this summer? If so, I know how difficult it can be to figure out just what to bring on your travels.
I used to be the person who brought a whole bag filled with just beauty products. (No lie!) However, over the years, I've come to realize that traveling light makes a huge difference for the quality of my trip. I don't have to haul all my stuff around and I actually love the feeling of simplicity and freedom - afterall, isn't that what its about when you travel? Exploring the world without the "baggage."
When it comes to my essentials, multipurpose products are key. I did an Instagram story a week ago about some of my favorites, but I didn't get a chance to mention all of them, so I compiled a list of the products I NEVER travel without. Here are my top ones. Can you spot some of your favorites?
GLOBAL TRAVEL KIT
I created my skincare line to be multipurpose. This travel set contains travel-sizes of everything you need to keep your skin feeling and looking its best. You can learn about all the products in the collection on the shop pages. (It contains all the products in the Global Beauty Collection except for the Global Baby / Sensitive Serum.) This bag is the perfect size as a makeup bag to house all your makeup essentials. Bonus: It's made in Thailand by artisan women using all natural, sustainable materials and dyes. Purchase here.
GLOBAL BABY / SENSITIVE SERUM
I bring a full-size of this serum because I use it for EVERYTHING when I travel! I especially love it as a makeup remover and cleansing oil. My skin tends to be more dry and sensitive when I travel, so it keeps my skin from getting too irritated. I also use it as a face/hair/body serum to keep it moisturized and soft. Bonus: This serum smells like fresh watermelon and cucumber! Purchase here.
Rose water is so refreshing, and I love spritzing my face and hair on the plane, or throughout the day. (I also spritz my face pillow with rose water before bed) It's very calming on the skin - reducing redness and irritation and keeps my skin hydrated. Purchase here.
COOLA CLASSIC SUNSCREEN with Cucumber SPF 30
This is my favorite sunscreen at the moment. It feels so light on the skin and it doesn't feel greasy. It works really nicely under makeup. Bonus: The smell is amazing - fresh cucumber! Tip: Wear Sunscreen everywhere- even on the plane. Purchase here.
BKR GLASS WATER BOTTLE
I try to stay hydrated as much as possible while I travel. This bottle is 500 ml and I bring it with me wherever I go. It also helps me to reduce the use of plastic. Bonus: It looks so cute in my handbag! Purchase here.
LOTUS WEI FLOWER ELIXIR RADIANT ENERGY
I've been a fan of flower essences for some time now, and this is by far my favorite. It helps dissolve air travel fatigue, and weak immune system. It recharges you after air travel, and magnifies vitality. I take 5 drops 5 times a day and even add it to my water, teas or coffees. Learn more about the benefits of flower essences on their website. Purchase here.
KJAER WEIS CREME BLUSH in Desired Glow
A wonderful creme blush that also works great for lips and eyelids. It has a nice texture, lasts long and makes skin look healthy and glowing - naturally. Purchase here.
Traveling increases the likeliness of digestive and gut issues and these probiotic supplements help me maintain digestive health and boost my immune system. I take one pill with every meal. (3 times a day) Purchase here.
Instead of drinking coffee or black tea on the plane, I bring my own herbal teas with me and ask for some hot water. Tulsi tea is a wonderful adaptogen with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It's stress relieving and regulates blood sugar levels. It also tastes delicious and prevents me from getting dehydrated and headaches. Purchase here.
Tongue scraping has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years. I start each morning with scraping my tongue. It reduces bad breath due to toxins, germs and bacteria on the tongue. It also improves digestion. Purchase here.
RAHUA SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
Rahua shampoo and conditioner have been favorites for years. I love that the ingredients are sustainably sourced and it always leaves my hair smooth and shiny. I love this little travel set so I don't have to bring full-size bottles with me. Purchase here.
