Carefree summer travel means doing it all…and packing as lightly as possible! Here are a few of our favorite multi-tasking natural skin and beauty products—in TSA-approved sizes—for easy, breezy travel.
Cleanser + Makeup Remover
Pre-moistened towelettes are traveler favorites for freshening up on the road or keeping kids clean. Yes to Cucumbers Cleansing Facial On-the Go Towelettes clean, refresh and gently exfoliate skin with cucumber and green tea extract, and safely remove even waterproof makeup.
Natural Insect Repellent + Sunscreen or Moisturizer
If you’re hiking or out on the water during the day, choose a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen combined with a DEET-free, essential oil-based bug repellent. Badger Anti-Bug Sunscreen has an SPF of 34 along with zinc oxide and citronella, rosemary and geranium organic oils to protect you from the sun—and unwanted critters!
After sundown, apply an all-over, lightly hydrating body lotion like Pharmaca Body Lotion in Lemongrass & Sage with mosquito- and tick-repelling lemongrass, vetiver, pine and cedar oil extracts.
Shampoo + Body Wash
Heading to the pool or the beach? Multi-tasking Babo Botanicals Swim and Sport Shampoo & Wash is good for the whole family (even babies), and gently cleanses body and hair while removing chlorine and salt with natural, corn-based ingredients. Additional aloe vera, calendula and cucumber extracts soothe and moisturize skin, and plant conditioners leave hair smooth and soft. Pour into a 2.4 oz Pharmaca Fill and Fly Travel Bottle for an easy carry-on in your travel bag.
After-Sun Treatment + Skin Moisturizer
Cool down with a refreshing mist that nourishes skin, too. DermaE Hydrating Mist with Hyaluronic Acid, calms skin with witch hazel and aloe vera and rehydrates with moisture-sealing hyaluronic acid (and smells like fresh picked plumeria flowers!).
Stress-Buster + Fragrance
Airports, long car rides and even changes in time zones can all cause stress and headaches. Scientists say lavender calms us and can even help relieve migraine headaches. Essential oils are a safe, natural alternative to mass-marketed perfumes, too. Arrive at your destination calm and smelling great with Pharmaca Be Calm Lavender Essential Oil Blend, featuring notes of lavender, orange, geranium and frankincense.
Itch Reliever + Hair Treatment + more
One little tub of organic coconut oil like All Good Organic Coconut Oil Skin Food can serve a multitude of purposes when you travel. Makeup remover, body moisturizer, shaving cream, lip balm, frizzy hair tamer and bug-bite itch reliever are just a few of the tasks a dab of coconut oil can do. Plus, coconut oil has antibacterial and antimicrobial benefits, so a thin layer on scratches or scrapes will help prevent infections.
