Our Kbeauty Travel Picks
Its holiday season again and we can wait to hit the beach or build our snowman but before we can do that there is one thing. We all need to pack but lets face it packing our entire skincare routine may be a bit of a problem. Here's our picks for kbeauty items that we need to have while on holiday:
#1 Makeup remover
Thou shall never sleep with makeup on. Sleeping with your makeup can lead to clogged pores and bacteria build up which subsequently lead to acne. If you want to minimize the amount of liquids in your luggage, you can opt for the Huxley Cleansing Water; Be Clean; Be Moist which is only 30ml or if you want to cut out water completely why not carry a some makeup remover wipes like the Innisfree Apple Seed Cleansing Tissue or a smaller version of your Heimish cleansing balm.
#2 A Cleanser that Cleanses and Exfoliates
Yes, there is such a thing. Its the Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick . It contains green tea seed oil which will gently remove any impurities on your skin and green tea leaves which will exfoliate your skin when you use this cleansing stick in a circular motion. Its even gentle enough to use as a daily exfoliator. Hence, killing two steps in one go. How's that for saving time and space?
#3 An Essence That Can Be A Toner
I bet you guys have heard of toners that can chemically exfoliate your skin like your favourite Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Day Miracle Toner or toner pads that tone and exfoliate your skin at the same time like the Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pad but have you ever heard of an essence that can be a toner? Introducing the Hanskin Real Complexion Hyaluron Skin Essence, it is a hybrid essence that is also a toner. It contains an advanced form of hyaluronic acid called sodium hyaluronate that's comprised of smaller molecules, allowing it to hold 1,000 times more moisture than water. This essence sinks fast into skin and deeply infuses it with hydration. It is only slightly thicker than the Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and it won't drown your skin when you put on 7 layers of it.
#4 A Moisturiser That Calms The Skin
Whether you are playing with snow or lazing on the beach your skin is prone to getting to getting irritated, hence, having a moisturiser that can moisturse and sooth your skin will come in handy during holiday season just like the Mamonde Rose Water Soothing Gel, Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream or the It's Skin Secret Solution Shield Soothing Gel. Depending on their ingredients some of these moisturiser even help with other skin concerns like acne and some even contain antioxidants like the one by It's Skin which contains chamaecyparis obtusa water.
#5 A Sunblock That Does More
If you haven't read our previous post on the importance of sunblock, then you should so that, you'll understand why here at N2N Allure we are big advocates of wearing sunblock. You should always wear sunblock during the day even when its cloudy because those UV rays can penetrate the clouds in the sky. Hence, why it is our kbeauty travel picks.
However, not all sunblocks are created equal, some sunblocks contain additional ingredients that can further help with anti-aging such as the Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care or the Neogen Day-Light Protection Sun Screen which contain antioxidants that can help nourish, hydrate and prevent the first wrinkle. There are also sunblock that hydrate and soothe the skin at the same time such as the Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream.
There you have it our kbeauty travel picks, that cuts down the number of items in your luggage and saves you some time without you forgoing your skincare routine.
