When traveling, it can be quite easy for us to neglect our skin. We often assume that our skin will be fine and that it can be good for our skin to get some extra vitamin D that it may lack in Ireland. This isn’t always the case as often our skin can become damaged from traveling and also react differently to new climates.


Going from a cold climate to a hot climate and back again can have devastating effects on your skin. This is why it’s so important that when traveling you have the right skincare products in your travel bag to ensure your skin is being looked after to its full potential.


We’ve compiled a list of what we believe are some of the best products on the market that you should have in your travel bag in 2019.


AlumierMD Clear Shield


We can’t stress this enough. Even on cloudy days it’s so important to protect your skin from potentially harmful UV rays. These UV rays can cause your skin to dry out, accelerate aging and increase wrinkles. We recommend applying the highest SPF cream you can find as this will provide your skin with the maximum protection. One product that we recommend using is Alumier clear shield. This lightweight non-comedogenic sunscreen provides a powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays using a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, both physical filters. Alumier clear shield is light in texture and dries quickly on the skin making it perfect for those who have oily or acne prone skin.


AlumierMD Purifying Gel Cleanser


When traveling it’s important to cleanse your skin more regularly than you would at home. This is mainly due to the changes in temperature, different environments and increased humidity. When we travel abroad to a hotter country we tend to sweat more which results in the skin becomes more clogged with a build up of dead cells and excess . We recommend using AlumierMD Purifying gel cleanser. It can be used as a cleanser, body wash and shampoo so it will save money and space rather than having to bring separate products.



Jane Iredale Pressed Powder

When it comes to skincare and travel. It’s always quality above quantity. The less space you can take up in your suit care the better. Jane Iredale Pressed Powder is ideal for this.

MATRIXYL™ Synthe’6™ strengthens skin and improves elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps the skin stay hydrated in the sun, by helping to retain moisture which is inevitably lost the warm weather.




Even when travelling, it’s important to always look after your skin. Sitting on stuffy planes and buses isn’t healthy for your skin and can cause a lot of damage if it’s not properly protected. We selected the best products on the market at the moment we feel that are essential to have a space in your travel bag.
