travel skincare tips, ultra icons discovery set

Whether you’re on a long-haul flight, road trip or spending a few nights away from home, it’s important to keep your skincare regimen in check.


Between the change in weather conditions, sleep deprivation and baggage restrictions, it’s no secret that travel can cause havoc to your skin. You may feel extra dry, dehydrated or prone to the odd breakout. Luckily, our experts have shared their best tips that will keep your skin thriving wherever you are. 


Cleanse, twice.

Cleansing is an essential first step in any skincare routine (you already know this), but a quick cleanse and rinse isn’t going to cut it if you want to thoroughly remove all the makeup, grime and sunscreen off your holiday skin.

This is where emphasise the importance of double cleansing - the secondary cleanse that allows the removal of stubborn impurities and pollutants that may congest the skin. The removal of this residue will not only leave your pores squeaky clean but will also allow better absorption of your serums and moisturisers to follow. 



Cabin air, temperature drops or more time spent outdoors are some of the many culprits that may leave your skin feeling extra dry or dehydrated while on holiday. An obvious tip? ensure you drink enough water before, during and after your flight. 

If your skin’s needing an extra hit of moisture, opt for our Ultra B² Hydrating Mask. A hydrogel mask designed to restore hydration and transform the appearance of tired and stressed skin. We also like to refer to is as, a drink of water - but for your skin.


Pre-flight facial treatment.

Prep your skin before you go by booking a facial treatment. Our Global Education Ambassador (and skincare fairy godmother), Tracey Beeby’s go-to is our Signature Facial Treatment with a PHA Resurfacing Treatment. “It’s my perfect treatment before a trip for optimal hydration”. 

You can choose from our Signature or Performance treatments, designed to offer a unique and effective approach to caring for your skin - leaving you feeling confident and radiant. Explore our treatment menu here.


SPF, daily.

No matter where you are, it’s always a good idea to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB radiation. Don’t forget to apply and (reapply) SPF every 2 hours all over your face, neck and ears.


Remember, it’s all about consistency, so keep your daily skincare regimen as similar as possible. The easiest way to do this is to grab your everyday essentials in a travel size.
