Travel Beauty Tips

There are so many things to consider when traveling that our beauty routines and self-care often get pushed aside. It’s so important to continue to take care of yourself while traveling, especially because you are likely to encounter many elements that can affect your hair, skin and even your health. We’re talking about the yucky germs on the plane and in public places, the change in weather or altitude, pollution, proximity to the sun - and that’s just to name a few. Follow the tips below when preparing for your next trip to ensure proper self-care while traveling.

Pack Carry-On Friendly Items

It’s best to keep your beauty and toiletry items in your carry-on bag. If your luggage gets lost (fingers crossed it doesn’t!), you wouldn’t want to be missing these items for the few first days of your trip until your luggage gets returned to you. Be sure to follow the TSA protocol of packing liquid items that are 3.4oz or less in a clear, quart sized back - you also wouldn't want to run the risk of having to toss your beloved beauty items at the security gate. The other great thing about having these items in your carry-on is you can practice some self-care on the plane! This is especially great if you are taking a long flight oversees.

Self-Care On The Plane

  • Masque - Bring a sheet masque to use during your flight. You may get some funny looks, but your skin will definitely thank you for the extra moisture and care!

  • Moisturize - Apply a facial moisturizer mid-flight and be sure to bring a great hand lotion as well. We recommend Aveda Hand Relief - it’s intense moisture lasts through three hand washes, which is especially great while traveling - wash away those germs while your skin stays hydrated!

  • Lip Balm - Treat your lips with a moisturizing balm several times throughout the flight to prevent chapping.

Say Bye-Bye To Bacteria

Hand sanitizer and cleansing wipes will be your best friend! Be sure to bring wipes to sanitize your area on the plane. Wash your hands and use a sanitizer regularly throughout the flight and the entirety of your trip to avoid germs and illness.

Protect Your Skin & Hair From The Sun

You may not realize how much sun you’re getting through the window on the plane and during your trip. Be sure to load on the sunscreen and reapply regularly to protect your skin. Your hair could use a shield from the UV rays, as well. Aveda has a great sun-care line that specifically protects your hair from the sun, salt and chlorine. Bring a sun-protector with you and a trendy hat to shield your locks during your trip.

Bring Your Essentials + Multi-Tasking Products

Bring the products that matter most to you! It’s important to be comfortable and feel like yourself when traveling, so don’t leave your favorites at home. Efficiency and space saving is important as well, so find some multi-tasking products that you love to bring along- like a lip color that can double as a cheek stain and a palette that contains a powder, bronzer and blush.

Maintain Your Blowout

Dry Shampoo and Dry Conditioner are absolute MUSTS when traveling. These will help you maintain your blowout so you can skip a wash or two and optimize your vacation time. They’re also great for mid-day refreshers when you’ve been outside for hours or on public transportation and feel like you need a little boost to your style. Aveda Dry Shampure is wonderful because it is in powder form and easy to travel with, plus it has an amazing aroma! You may get the fabulous compliment, “You smell like Aveda”.


As always, the most important part of self-care and beauty is to stay hydrated. Bring your favorite travel water bottle with you and drink plenty of water throughout your trip.
