Traveling With Acne Skincare Routine

Traveling with Acne Skincare Routine

Traveling with acne can be very frustrating. Some acne routines can be difficult to travel with. Not only do you need to find travel-sized products and move your entire routine into travel-sized containers, but it just causes more stress for you. More stress, different humidities, different kinds of environments may cause an increase of breakouts.

Making sure you have a good travel skincare routine is going to help keep your acne controlled and help reduce the amount of breakouts during your travels.

The Stuggle With Acne Prone Skin

Acne in general can be difficult to deal with. Girl, I feel you! I know how annoying acne can be. One day there is only a small pimple, but then the next hour it feels inflamed and super painful. Not to mention feeling insecure, and not truly enjoying your travels.

When traveling, the added stress can make your breakouts worse and make you more inflamed. Or worse, you tend to break out more when on vacation. And I know, no one wants to deal with another blemish while relaxing on the beach or experiencing a new city.

I hated to take photos straight on where you could see my face. Many of my photos during my acne time was far enough away that you were unable to tell all the blemishes that I had or I would cover my face with a hat or something like that.

One thing to remember is that you are traveling to enjoy, try not to obsess over your breakouts! I know this is easier said than done, but I’ve been in that position before.

I wasted so much time covering up my pimples with makeup that I felt like I did not truly enjoy some of the new cities I was visiting. I remember I hated taking photos because I did not want to see my blemishes. Looking back, I should have focused on the experience of a new travel destination rather than my breakouts.

Traveling With Acne Skincare Routine

When you are traveling with acne prone skin, the best thing to do is to make sure to have a good skincare routine! A skin care routine specifically targeted to help reduce breakouts and acne.

One thing I would definitely suggest is to make sure to bring products that you have already used. I know just how tempting it is to save space in the luggage, so many people gravitate towards sample packets. This is a really bad idea because you never know how those products will affect your skin.

Bring products that your skin already loves! Travel can be stressful for your skin which may cause breakouts in general. And then bringing products that you are unfamiliar with will further increase the risk of breakouts.

Also bring products that are best used for your skin type and the weather conditions. For example, If you have super oily skin but are traveling to a super dry area. Make sure to pack more hydrating products!

Even though you do not want to look more oily, your skin will need that extra hydration. The extra moisture will help your skin decrease the amount of sebum released to clog your pores.

Acne Prone Skin Products To Bring

I would make sure to bring products that your skin already loves! If you are unable to find travel sized products, I would invest in travel sized bottles. Depending on how long you are traveling, it might be worth it to pack the full sized bottle.

I personally love THIS SET from Cosrx! I love how it has all the products that I already use, but in travel sized bottles. If you have never tried these products out, this set is a really good way to try new products before committing to the full sized bottle.

I just keep this set in my toiletry bag to use for all my travels! This complete set is really good for all skin types and it helps with hydration and acne. This set has snail mucin as the main ingredient which helps to increase moisture to the skin. Read my COSRX products for oily skin for an in depth review of these products!

Another set to add to your travel skincare regime would be THIS SET! Both of these sets completed each other due to the different products. This CICA set includes Centella, which has been shown to help reduce irritation and inflammation on the skin. This is really good for acne prone skin because it helps soothe the skin while still adding hydration back into the cells.

I would use the snail mucin cleanser, the CICA toner, the CICA serum, the Snail mucin serum, the eyecream, and then one of the moisturizers. If you feel like you need more hydration then you could always add a layer of the other one. I love using these products when I travel. Together these products work very well together and will help reduce breakouts while traveling.

Another skincare product that I always carry with me, especially when I travel is a good sunscreen. Not only do I have regular sunscreen like This ONE! I love this one because it does not break me out, it feels super light, and it does not feel sticky or make me look more oily.

If you have access to a dermatologist, or med spa, look for Elta MD! This is my favorite medical grade sunscreen! It is a mineral based product with a tint in order to provide a more cohesive skin texture and color, while still providing quality sun protection.

But I also have a powder sunscreen! This makes reapplication super easy, and it does not mess up your makeup! But the best sunscreen is the one that you will always wear! Regardless if it is raining or not, sun protection is needed every morning!

I also always bring a pack of pimple patches! I love traveling with these little babies because it really helps reduce the redness and inflammation of active acne.

They are super lightweight and you can barely tell that they are on. I love how they are able to suck out all the gunk stuck under the skin. If you are a picker, these patches will help prevent extra irritation and contamination as well.
