Skincare products while traveling; how much is too much?
Dumbing down a skin care routine so it is travel-friendly can be daunting. I used to need suitcases full of bottles and serums. I was tied to a rigorous routine when the sun came up and when the sun went down. My morning concoction of store-bought products came first, and then when evening came, I had a totally different set of bottles to lug out of my packed duffle. I won't even get into the makeup that came in between those routines. To say the least, this isn't sustainable for many trips, especially if you want to be a life-long traveler.
Making the Switch to All-Natural
I made a switch and started using natural skincare products a few years ago, and it changed my routine (and skin) in more ways than I expected. I was looking for a product that allowed for me to check-mark the box of being a little more "organic", but once I started using farragio's all-natural Ultimate Tinted Face Moisturizer, I started to need the other bottles of not-so-natural fragrancy skincare products less and less.
The name tells it like it is: all-natural. I can count on one hand (and an extra thumb) the ingredients that are in the moisturizer. Those combined ingredients result in a silky oil when applied to my face, which leaves a natural glow throughout the day. My skin is so grateful for the break!
Ready for Travel
I didn't even realize at the time that it would help enhance my traveling by allowing for simple packing. My toiletry bag used to seem like it was a second suitcase, but now I only use farragio's all-natural Ultimate Tinted Face Moisturizer morning and night. It is especially perfect for nature travel because it is unscented and doesn't attract bugs; and the Vitamin E & Castor Oil found in the ingredients helps to protect against UV rays, so I know I'm covered on those sunny mornings as I'm stepping out of our tent, and I don't need to bring any makeup with me anymore. Now when I wake up and apply the tinted moisturizer with a dab of mascara, I'm ready to take on any adventure and any "candid" photoshoots that take place while exploring on a trail.
Can You Relate?
How can you simplify your skin care routine to free up some counter and suitcase space? I was a little hesitant initially to make the commitment of switching because I felt like my skin looked dull and lifeless without makeup. If you can relate, then take comfort in knowing that your skin just needs a little all-natural. It's like that saying goes, "when you treat your skin like a queen, it'll treat you like a king", or something to that effect. But, your skin will have a glow-up with a bit of all-natural love. Plus, nature looks good on everybody. Happy all-natural travels!
