Even a simple overnight trip can turn disastrous if you suddenly discover you’ve forgotten to pack one of your beauty essentials. We are here to save you from ever suffering this unfortunate fate! Travel Beauty has curated the ultimate collection of overnight beauty essentials in one convenient travel kit. Use this product guide as your packing list and you’re guaranteed to have a gorgeous getaway every time. Hitting the beach? Be sure to check out our beach bag beauty essential guide specifically for the sand and sun!

Overnight Essentials: Shower with Power

Starting your day off with a sub-optimal shower can dampen anyone’s spirits, so a fragrant shower gel and body cream duo is a definite overnight beauty essential. We love Compagnie De Provence travel size shower gels and body milks. They come in a variety of scents, but you can never go wrong with Olive and Lavender Shower Gel and Incense Lavender Body Cream. The petite size makes these products perfect for a quick overnight trip.

Overnight Face Essentials

Sometimes an unfamiliar (and/or uncomfortable) bed can lead to us suffering through a night of broken sleep. But you’d never know it by looking at our faces! How do we keep our skin looking fresh no matter what? By packing our favorite essential face products. We keep skin clean with travel size Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash and follow that with Institut Esthederm E.V.E. Serum Source and Juvena Specialist Skin Nova SC Eye Serum. No overnight travel beauty kit is complete without these. This product trifecta will keep skin smooth and bright, even after a rough or restless night.

An Overnight Essential for Beautiful Hair

You may choose to skip the shampoo on your overnight trip, but your hairstyle will nonetheless need refreshing at some point. Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence is an overnight beauty essential for hair you’ll always find in our travel kit. It protects, conditions, tames, smoothes and adds shine…with just a few sprays. We especially love Daily Damage Defence to protect our hair from those high heat hotel hair dryers.

We’ve kept this overnight essentials travel kit intentionally pared down. Think you need to round your own bag out with a few more products? Shop Travel Beauty’s entire collection of luxury beauty and grooming products now.

Negative Ion Water: Benefits for Beauty

vine care water

Where do I begin? Vine Care Water is negative ion water that was first developed in Japan for NASA to clean the lenses and mirrors on space bound vehicles and satellites. Bacteria cannot live in a pH 12.5 environment, so it was made as a germ-killing cleanser.

Negative ion water is 170 times more absorbent than water, so on its own it provides moisture. Used in conjunction with hair and skin care products, negative ion water works as a driver – so it boosts the effectiveness of products used subsequently.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Hair Care

The negative charge of the water is attracted to – and bonds to – hair.  It helps strengthen fine hair, making it feel thicker. It boosts the strength of conditioners, treatments or styling aids to amplify the benefits of these products. It can also be mixed with your shampoo or conditioner at a rate of 10%, or can be sprayed onto hair, roots to ends, before leave-in conditioners or styling aids are applied. This is a fabulous tool for thick, curly hair as well; read more here about how to use it.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Skin Care

Care Water works great as a skin toner or clarifier that also adds moisture (most products that clarify tend to dry the skin). Many of my clients have had success clearing up some forms of acne with Care Water as well. Layered with other products, it boosts the benefits of those products. Here’s an easy experiment to give you an idea of what Care Water does:

  • Put a few drops of oil into water. You will see it separates.
  • Then spray the oil and water with Care Water.
  • You will see it actually reduces the size of the oil drops so that the water and oil mix together.
  • This is the same way Care Water breaks up and clears away oils on the skin.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Scrapes & Cuts

Sprayed on scrapes or cuts, Care Water cleans the wounds (by killing bacteria) and moisturizes, therefore promoting healing. It’s currently being used in research at burn hospitals in Japan with very positive results.

Negative Ion Water Benefits for Teeth

Care Water also works for brushing your teeth – both cleansing and whitening. Read all about our smile-cleaning secrets here. Don’t swallow it, though! It is not for internal use. The pH is too extreme for that.

Care Water is the ideal multi-tasking travel companion. You can find this cure-all wonder water in travel size here at Travel Beauty.

Sunless Self-Tanning Tips from Travel Beauty

travel beauty tips for best self tanning at home

How to Get Your Best Self Tan At Home

Ned Stark warned us that winter is coming…could someone please summon his ghost to find out when, exactly, winter is LEAVING?!?! When you wake up one morning to discover that spring is upon us, will you look like a white walker? Start self-tanning now so you can sport a skirt on the first spring day. Here’s a foolproof plan to get you from ghostly to glowing likety-split.

Keep All Your Supplies In The Shower

We are talking scrub, body oil, body lotion and self-tanner. Apply it in the shower. The result: minimal mess, easy clean up and let’s be honest, you need to be as naked as your name day when slathering on self-tanner.

Don’t Hate…Exfoliate!

I use a body scrub twice a week year round. If you don’t regularly scrub your bod, this is the best time to start! Do it at the beginning of your shower, when skin is damp but not saturated – this helps the scrub to work optimally. If skin isn’t wet enough, the scrub won’t spread across your skin as easily (and can hurt!). If skin is too wet, the granules in the scrub will dissolve before they can really do their best work.

After Your Shower

Remove any excess water from your skin. No need to completely dry off – skin can still be damp. Use a body cream or oil (I use an oil for this) to gently cover knees, elbows, hands (especially in between fingers and palms), ankles and feet. The idea is to cover the places where self-tanner tends to collect, causing not-so-cute concentrated dark spots.

Alright Stop…Tanner Time!

The Travel Beauty Team is devoted to Institut Esthederm Sun Sheen Self-tanner because it is truly foolproof: never streaky and always natural-looking. If you have pale skin (as I do), you may want to ease yourself into self-tanning season by mixing your tanner with a body cream – at least for the first few applications. This allows for a subtler effect that you can build gradually. The new BB and CC creams for body are tailor-made for this task! They have a hint of hue and are designed to perfect skin tone and mask blemishes. They soften the self-tanner just enough to give a light, flawless application, while also providing the moisture your winter-ravaged skin is still craving.

Cover Everything

The tops of your toes, sides of your feet and every part of your skin leading up to your underarm – and don’t forget the backs of your legs. So many parts of the body can be exposed that you may not think of. Better to be safe than sorry.

Don’t Get Caught Tan-handed!

If you covered your hands well with oil or cream, you shouldn’t end up with deep-fried looking fingers. Still, it is important to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water immediately after applying self-tanner. Make sure to clean in between fingers and on the inside of wrists- two spots that are easy to overlook, and therefore easy to look over-tanned. You can even give your hands a quick exfoliation with your scrub if you think they need it.

Make sure product has fully dried before getting dressed so you don’t rub any tanner off on your clothes.

Follow these steps and you’ll be ready to show some skin as soon as The Winds of Winter stop blowing.
