Travel edition: Skincare dos & don'ts

Do you break out every time you travel? Yeah, you're not alone. But let's do something about that, shall we?

Travel is stressful enough— let's not add acne, lines and clogged pores to the mix.

What if your skin actually looked better after a trip? We're going to get you there, friend. Here are the insider tips:

1. Stop touching your face

Yeah we know you've heard this one before. Probably from your mom when you were just a little, sticky kid. But we mean it— did you know that the most germs in the airport are on those bins you put all your stuff in at the security screening? I know, it's pretty cringe-worthy. So wash your hands as much as you can, carry hand sanitizer, and avoid the makeup testers at the duty free.

Our unscented activated charcoal facial soap.

2. Invest in some activated charcoal facial soap ASAP

You see activated charcoal everywhere these days— in lemonade, toothpaste and certainly skincare. Here's why: #activated #charcoal is known for its ability to trap and extract toxins. We're talking excess oils, dirt, grime— basically everything you really don't want mucking up your pores. Pssst- just about everything I listed above is found at the airport, taxis, trains, subways, etc. We carry two varieties: unscented and #lavender essential oil. They just so happen to come in this super convenient tin for travel, too. #Insider-tip: keep it in your carry on to freshen up on connections and layovers.
