Prepping for a trip can be stressful enough, so we’re here to take the stress out of choosing which skincare products to pack with our new Mindful Minis. Air conditioning on airplanes, disrupted sleep patterns and a brand-new environment – travel can sometimes cause chaos with your complexion. The key is to always come prepared, and that’s where our Mindful Minis collection steps in.
We’ve poured our bestselling formulas into smaller recycled and recyclable packs that deliver big benefits to your skin and our planet, to save space in your suitcase and save you from a packing panic. Now you can take your favourite skincare routine with you on your travels and make every day a clean to skin day – no matter where you are.
Get back to basics
Your number one goal when packing skincare for a holiday should be to keep your skin as balanced and comfortable as possible, in as few steps as possible. So, it’s time to get back to basics with these non-negotiable travel staples:
- Day cream
- Night cream
Step 1: Cleanser
Create a comfortable canvas for the rest of your routine and send sensitivity packing with our Evercalm™ Gentle Cleansing Gel and Evercalm™ Gentle Cleansing Milk. Specifically formulated to calm as they clarify; these non-drying cleansers are enriched with bioactives that help strengthen your skin and support your microbiome balance.
Step 2: Toner
A bestseller for a reason, our iconic Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic is the ultimate one-stop-space-saving-shop that uses gently exfoliating AHAs and BHAs to deliver brighter, smoother, more even looking and hydrated skin - in just one step.
Step 3: Day Cream
If you’re looking for major brightness, made Mini, our Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream will give your skin an instant glow, plus it hydrates, plumps and helps to protect against free radicals. If it’s major soothing, made Mini you’re after, reach for our Evercalm™ Global Protection Day Cream to comfort your skin and help protect against pollution damage and external aggressors.
Step 4: SPF
Don’t even think about leaving home without an SPF, even if you aren’t going anywhere sunny. We’ve added bonus skincare benefits to our Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 so that it doesn’t just deliver broad spectrum protection against UVA/UBV; it’s packed with antioxidants, so it helps to protect against free radicals, it’s gentle on sensitive skin, and it keeps shine at bay throughout the day too. Never skimp on sunscreen (more is always more), so remember to re-apply every 2 hours for maximum protection.
Step 5: Night cream
After a long day of travelling, you’ll want to let your night cream do the hard work, while you work on your beauty sleep. Our Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm is a restful night’s sleep bottled (even if it’s technically in a jar). It is proven to calm and soothe while you sleep, that supports your skin during its natural overnight regeneration process in only 30 minutes, this creamy, comforting mask helps to strengthen your skin’s protective moisture barrier to aid recovery and increase its ability to cope with climatic changes and stress.
Keep these must-have products in your carry-on, so that if your luggage gets lost, you’ll still be able to take care of your skin’s most basic needs.
Choose your treat products wisely
When it comes to travelling, your suitcase is prime real estate, so if you do bring more skincare products beyond the basics, choose wisely. Take into consideration the skin concerns that you are trying to avoid. Are these sensitivity, dryness, redness, or lines and wrinkles? And the climate that you will be travelling to.
If you’re prone to dryness or venturing to a colder climate, consider a hydrating face mask, like our Evercalm™ Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask, that’ll rapidly rehydrate and help to restore calm to your skin. Clinically proven to significantly calm and soothe in only 30 minutes, this creamy, comforting mask helps to strengthen your skin’s protective moisture barrier to aid recovery and increase its ability to cope with climatic changes and stress.
If you’re prone to fine lines and wrinkles reach for a serum that’ll help to smooth things over, like our Bio Retinoid™ Youth Serum. Powered by our naturally derived alternative to retinol, Bidens Pilosa, this supercharged serum delivers retinol mirroring results, made suitable for sensitive skin.
