How to Pack for a Skin Emergency While Traveling

You head out on a well-deserved vacation.. only to arrive at your destination looking haggard and weathered.

When you’re always on the go, taking care of your skin can sometimes take a backseat! Traveling can mean long hours in a car, train, or plane, which is enough to make just about anyone’s skin act up. We’ve all been there – you head out on a well-deserved vacation or all-important business trip, only to arrive at your destination looking haggard and weathered. But no worries; we’ve listed out the five most common skin travel emergencies below, along with a complete guide on how to tackle them. With just a bit of preparation, you can leave skin issues behind on your next trip.


Acne. It’s the last thing that any of us want to deal with, period, let alone when we’re on the road. But, especially for those with sensitive skin, traveling can spur unexpected zits and other skin emergencies. Whether the cause is a change in climate or higher-than-normal stress levels, we know that you just want those pimples gone. To make acne just a minor bump in the road, be sure to pack a spot treatment such as the Sonya Dakar Blemish Buster. Don’t let the small packaging fool you, this treatment packs salicylic acid which will make that pesky zit disappear overnight.

Puffy Eyes

When your crazy schedule has you catching the red-eye flight, you may be looking through puffy, swollen eyes in the morning. Luckily, we know a few portable solutions to make your eyes appear rested once more. Chamomile tea bags are one tried-and-true (not to mention cheap) way to de-puff sleepy eyes. Chamomile is soothing for skin and even helps to combat irritants. All you must do is steep the bags for a few minutes in hot water, let cool, and place right under your eyes. It’s an at-home spa treatment and travel skin solution in one!

If chamomile isn’t your cup of tea, we adore our Eyeposuction. Its formula has a Nano Apple Stem-Cells Complex and concentrated botanical extracts to nix inflammation, under-eye fat deposits, and those annoying dark circles.

Dry Skin

With the change in weather that comes along with many big trips, dry skin is a common downfall. Dryness and flaking not only makes it tough to apply makeup and other skin products but it’s also super uncomfortable. If your skin gets dry, remember to exfoliate. Exfoliation gets dead skin cells out of the way to reveal your gorgeous, healthy skin underneath. For a fast-acting exfoliant that you can carry along with you, take a look at our Flash Facial gel. With lactic acid, Halesome, and antioxidants, it’s gentle on sensitive skin while helping you say goodbye to toxins and impurities.

Redness and Allergies

Redness and allergies can happen with traveling especially with all those changes in the environment. Good thing for you, there are practical redness solutions in portable packages. For the lovely ladies out there with redness-prone skin, pack your own face wash! Don’t rely on what the hotel has to offer. Sudden changes in skin care products can be a one-way ticket to allergic reactions and redness. To restore your complexion, we’re partial to the Sonya Dakar Organic Omega Booster. This natural facial oil is ideal for all skin types (it comes in two different formulas, dry/sensitive or oily/combination) and is even safe for those with sensitive skin, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.


It’s no secret that hydration is key to keeping up a youthful glow. Hydrating skin care products should be at the top of your packing list. For a nighttime dehydration remedy, we recommend our Omega Overnight Sculpting Mask. It goes deep into pores to hydrate and plump up your skin by boosting collagen production.

Life can take us in all different directions, from one corner of the world to the other. But no matter where you go on your next big adventure, give your skin some on-the-go TLC by packing for every possible skin emergency.
