So where are you heading off to this summer? From bright sunny skied Spain to sultry Singapore, the world is your oyster. But all that trampling around the globe can wreak serious havoc on your skin. That’s why it’s super important to take care of your skin when you travel, so that breakouts, dullness and tanning don’t stand a chance. Sure, vacays are the perfect time to let your diet slip a bit but do NOT neglect your skincare.
Instead of lugging around a bagful of skincare products, we’ve shortlisted just four—yep you read right—products you need for your skin type that cover the four basic skincare steps: cleansing, toning, moisturising and masking. You’re welcome!

Here are the skincare kits for travel according to your skin type:


Your main concerns are flaking, redness, dullness and dryness. Start your regime with a gentle cleanser like Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash that gently removes dirt, impurities, whiteheads and blackheads leaving your skin brighter and healthier with a shining glow.  Next use an alcohol-free tone like Kaya Purifying Toner so your skin is ready to receive all the hydration from your moisturiser. Then slather on some moisture-rich Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème that’s infused with precious micro-crystals and skin lightening vitamins. Finally, don’t forget a crucual last step for dry skin, a sheet mask.  We love Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask - Hyaluronic Acid that relieves dryness, leaving your skin feeling completely nourished.


You lucky girl, all you need to do is focus on amping up your glow and guarding against pollution. Cleanse away the dirt of the day with grime of the day with L'Oreal Paris Age 20+ Skin Perfect Facial Foam a gentle formula that leaves your skin dewy and soft. Then add a boost of moisture along with sun protection with L'Oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 50. This light watery essence is instantly absorbed and is infused with SPF 30 UVB and UVA filters for long lasting sun protection for up to 12 hours. Every few days—especially if you’re on an outdoorsy vacay—to purge your skin of surface dullness with the Plum Chamomile & White Tea Glow - Getter Face Mask that contains five hyper-antioxidant leaf extracts that deep cleanse, exfoliate and nourish. Finally, carry along Fabindia Refreshing & Hydrating Rose Facial Water, a 100% plant based, anti-bacterial spray to hydrate and revitalises skin.


Dry or normal on cheeks and oily in the T zone, combination skin is one of the more common skin types and requires special care to maintain a perfect moisture balance across your face. Start with a gentle but effective cleanser like Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser that deep cleans pores, mattifying oily areas without over-drying skin. Follow up with the alcohol-free Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner that mattifies without over-drying. Next use the oil-free Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ that works brilliantly for all skin types. Finally keep some Kara Deep Pore Cleansing Wipes handy to ward off shine attacks. The Avocado and Jojoba extracts will unclog pores and detoxify skin on the go.


You don’t want to spend your vacay mopping up after oil spills or getting upset by new pimples. What you need is a three-in-one foaming cleanser like Biotique Bio Neem Purifying Face Wash For All Skin Type designed to reduce shine, mattify skin and stop acne in its tracks. Next up, use a mattifying, antibacterial toner like Aromatherapy Associates Mattifying Refining Skin Tonic infused with Lavender and Tea Tree that tightens skin, refines pores and balances oil. Also keep an oil-free moisturizer like Himalaya Herbals Oil-Free Radiance Gel Cream handy. This light textured cream is enriched with special herbs that quickly blend into skin, maintaining the lipid balance. Finally, use It's Skin The Fresh Mask Sheet - Tea Tree at least twice a week to keep troublesome skin problems at bay.
