Whether by plane, train or car, traveling can be pretty stressful and could have a bad effect on your appearance. To avoid doing the last-minute travel preparation, start a bit earlier with your beauty routine. Remember to make a list of items you absolutely need to take with you before hitting the road. Do not miss this Travel beauty checklist.
Pre-travel Beauty Routine
Even before packing your suitcase you need to make sure to leave enough time to get all of your beauty treatments done.

A week before you leave treat yourself to a deep exfoliating treatment. A good facial and body scrub will help you remove all dead skin cells and create a perfect base in case you want to get a glowing tan in the sun.
2. Get your nails done
A good gel manicure will last up to four weeks. That way you don’t have to worry about your nails while you’re away. We suggest you to go with neutral, nude colors that are less likely to show chips. Get them done two days before you go.
The night before you set off, don’t forget to apply moisturiser on your face and body. This will keep your skin hydrated before getting exposed to the dry air on a plane or train. This is also a perfect time to drink as much water as possible.
4. Try a hydrating hair mask
Treat your hair with a nice nourishing deep conditioning mask the morning before you leave. Your hair will be soft as silk and less prone to frizz. Book an appointment with your hair stylist a few days before you go away to get your split ends trimmed and your roots done.
Pack Smart – Travel Light
When it comes to beauty tips for traveling, it’s all about keeping things simple. You need to be smart when selecting your beauty products.
