The holiday season is upon us and that means travelling, whether it is a long vacation or just weekend stays at a favourite local destination.
To ensure that you have space and weight left to carry that extra evening jacket or a pair of leather boots, it means saving space and weight on your toiletries and other necessities.
Who doesn’t want to save on space and weight especially when you are travelling on a budget airline and the extra weight is chargeable?
Instead of lugging full size skincare and makeup products along, some clever beauty brands have come up with mini versions or travel-friendly sizes of their products.
To get the best of your beauty products, carry the ones that are not only lightweight but are also not at risk of messing up your luggage with possible spillage.
For a beauty product that aces your travelling beauty regime, opt for one that is efficient. That means, it truly does what it says and goes the extra mile in giving your skin the benefits that it needs especially when your skin is exposed to stress, lack of sleep and pollution during hectic travelling schedules.
Also, for destinations where you will be out the entire day and need to look and feel good all day, consider beauty products that are super light and easy to carry in your bag to give your skin or makeup a fresh pick me up anytime.
