Summer travel skincare must-haves for healthy skin

Whether you’re heading to a friend's beach house for a long weekend getaway or jetting off to sight see Europe for a few weeks, narrowing down what goes into your beauty bag for the short or long haul comes with its own challenges. 

Thankfully, we created a super simple beauty checklist as a packing guide so that next time you’re ready to leave town, your cosmetic case will be perfectly organized with all the essentials. 

(The only thing you’ll forget after you leave your house is your phone charger. Happens every time.)

Skin Care 

There’s no need to sacrifice your daily beauty regimen just because you’re on holiday. Make sure your beauty bag contains all your daily essentials to keep your skin looking fresh, super hydrated since our skin tends to get dehydrated during a flight. 

  • Cleanser
  • Sunscreen¬†
  • Avoila Nourishing Facial Oil to take the place of serum, moisturizer, eye cream and blemish treatment and makeup remover.
Expert tip: Pack a facial mist and moisturizer to reapply on the plane. 


No two makeup bags are the same. That is, your pouch is going to look a little different in comparison to another. 

If you tend to wear less makeup when away on a trip, you’ll have much more room for other essentials. For those who like a little more coverage, we suggest you pack your travel makeup bag as you’re applying it on your face - so that you don’t forget anything. 

But here’s a little tip: daily use of Avoila Nourishing Facial Oil will naturally boost your skin's health and appearance - so you won’t have to wear loads of makeup anymore! 

  • Foundation / Tinted Moisturizer (If you still use one, we find that just applying Avoila Nourishing Face Oil is enough)
  • Concealer
  • Lip balm, gloss or stain
  • Eyeliner and Mascara
  • Lash Curler
  • Tweezers

Hair, Oral Care and Body

It’s likely that if you’re staying at a hotel, housekeeping will have loads of little items in your room - but oftentimes at the cost of quality due to the fact that they do not contain clean ingredients. 

Pack your everyday body and hair essentials to combat dry skin and lackluster hair. 

  • Body Moisturizer¬†
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Razor and Shave Cream
  • Perfume
  • Hair Ties and Hairbrush
  • Dry Shampoo
  • Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Mouthwash, Floss

Expert tip: Don’t forget to transfer products into travel size containers if their original packaging is oversized for TSA guidelines. We can’t think of a worse way to start a trip than having to throw away a brand new product into an airport garbage can. Thankfully, Avoila Nourishing Facial Oil is perfectly suited for travel. Whew!
