When you travel, figuring out how to take care of your skin can be tricky. Not only do you need to be mindful of restrictions if you’re just bringing a carry-on, but you also need to take into the consideration the environment that you’ll be exploring. Currently, a lot of people are particular in ensuring that the skincare they purchase is sustainable and ethical.
states in its section on “Cruelty-free Cosmetics with Adore Beauty” that an average of 10 million animals suffer and die as a result of cosmetic testing every year! This is a shocking and staggering statistic that we can all play a part in tackling.
Check out the list of three cruelty-free skincare products that are perfect for traveling.
1. Cleanser: Dermalogica Daily Micro-foliant
If you head to your local pharmacy, drug store or supermarket you’ll find some brands that are cruelty-free, however they might be too big for your carry-on luggage. Instead, opt for shopping online for an ethical cleanser. Our top pick is Dermalogica's Daily Micro-foliant. This is an amazing go-to cleanser when you’re traveling and your pores are feeling slightly clogged up. It’s a gentle scrub that removes make-up, dirt and oil. With a combination of Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes, dead skin cells are banished, leaving your skin brighter and smoother. Check out My Beauty Bunny blog for more top tips.
2. Hydrator: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid
When you're flying to your destination, it’s important to remember the importance of keeping hydrated. This doesn’t just mean drinking lots of water, it also means properly hydrating your skin before, during and after you travel. Trust us, you’ll be so thankful that you did! If you haven't tried to out already, The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid is the perfect solution. This amazing serum holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water and is incredibly hydrating. It’s small enough to bring on-board and because it only uses a dropper, it will last you for months. Simply squeeze out two or three drops directly on to your face and massage in. And don’t forget your neck!
3. Sun Cream: Ocean Potion
One of the most important items in your skincare arsenal. After deciding that you want to shop for cruelty-free items, you also need to make sure the sun cream in question has both UVA and UVB protection. Thankfully, there are plenty of brands out there committed to letting you enjoy the sun while protecting your skin and animals. We recommend Ocean Potion as not only do they NOT test on animals, but the sun cream is also reef-safe if you plan on getting into the water. With sea plant extracts, antioxidants and a great fragrance, this sun cream nourishes your skin and ensures you’re beach ready! It’s a staple that you’ll keep coming back to.
