Summer may be officially over but that doesn’t mean an end to trips abroad! You may be taking the rolling autumn clouds as a sign to book your next trip to warmer shores, meaning you’ll soon be in need of our hotel room-approved, easy skincare routine. It can be so easy to drop our dedicated regimens when travelling because skincare just doesn’t feel as easy away from home. Have no fear, in our latest blog post The Glowcery dives into a super quick and easy hotel skincare routine that you can complete in less than 5 minutes, and with limited bathroom space!
Step 1: Cleanse
Hotel room cleansing isn’t always the easiest task. Whether it’s fighting for bathroom time with your holiday roommates or dealing with limited space, it can be tempting to sack it all off and reach for the face wipes. But don’t you dare! Our Blue Dew Fruit Enzyme Oil to Milk Cleanser makes cleansing and removing makeup quicker and easier than ever. Simply massage away all the daily dirt and grime build-up with a cleanser that works perfectly for a nourishing double cleanse.
Step 2: Add a splash of hydration
Travelling of any kind can be trying on the skin, but aircon is the worst culprit for dryness. When you finally touch down in your hotel room, make sure to add back some hydration to your skin, which may feel pretty dehydrated after a long-haul flight. Try Upcircle's plant-based facial toner which contains skin quenching hyaluronic acid.
Step 3: Lock it all in with an oil
The Clean Greens Superfood Serum is not only super nourishing but also helps bolster your skin barrier against the free radicals let loose in plane air conditioning systems. This will to help protect your skin if you are travelling in a different climate and avoid any sensitivity flare-ups from a change of environment.
Step 4: SPF is your BFF
The final step of our quick and easy hotel room skincare routine is to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays with a fast-absorbing, long-lasting SPF. A great SPF will provide long-lasting protection and leave you looking sun-kissed, not grey. Try Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 30.
Top Tip: Travel light
If you know you are going to be restricted to space in your holiday hotel room, make sure to travel light. Only bring the necessities of your skincare routine to fit into a quick and simple regimen like the one we’ve created in this post. We recommended investing in minis of your favourite skincare products to save not only packaging space but also shelf space in your hotel room. At The Glowcery we even offer our own travel-friendly sizes of your favourite products, shop them here in time for your next getaway!
Hotel room skincare routines at their core should be simple and quick so that you can take peace of mind in protecting your skin, whilst also giving as much time to holiday activities!
