Travel-Sized Beauty Essentials To Pack In For Your Summer Vacay

By  | 

It’s holiday season, which means at some point, you are going to take a break from your regular life and give yourself that much-desired vacation. Even if it is mini weekend getaway or a week’s break, it’s probably the one good thing that you’ve been looking forward to for a long time.

If you’re a light packer, you are well aware that it’s only the essentials that you should lug along for the ride. And you’ve accepted the fact that you need pick your favourites. However, if you’re one who considers everything an essential, well…then you may have a problem.

The biggest issue us beauty junkies face is that we require EVERYTHING and we’re not ready to compromise on anything. Leave no man behind! So what happens when you really cannot carry your life around? Bite-sized minis FTW!

These travel essentials will fulfill your basic holiday skincare and haircare needs, and will also fit into a mini bag that is totally travel-friendly.


Skincare is essential when you are going on holiday and that’s something you cannot compromise on. If you have sensitive skin, it isn’t ideal to use the hotel’s amenities, especially for your face.

Some skincare products have a travel-sized versions of themselves, so make sure you do a little R&D and get yourself a pack. This can either be for individual products, or for your whole skincare regime.

If not, online stores such as Amazon sell travel-friendly bottles that are reusable, so pump in your required product and you’re ready to go!

Lather up in sunscreen, whether or not it’s super sunny where you’re going. Make sure your skin isn’t directly exposed to sunlight — besides, getting really bad tan-lines, your holiday may cost you a whole lot of age-spots and fine lines. So make sure even your lip balm or chapstick has some SPF in it.

Unfortunately, your hair doesn’t go on holiday when you do! Your hair is bound to get oily and greasy at some point. If you can carry the hair essentials around, then great. However, if you don’t really have a chance to rinse out those tresses, dry shampoo is your saviour.

If you’re around a beach, then make sure to spritz some serum or hairspray, just so that it’s manageable without your styling products and tools at hand.
