If there’s one thing that comes up time and time again in our studio, it’s last-minute plans to break free from the daily grind and visit our favourite destinations. And of course, alongside the travel itineraries, must-visit places, and delightful eateries (because good food makes us happy too!), within the team we also love sharing our experiences with our favourite skincare products from the brand that keep our skin healthy while we’re on holiday. This week, we thought we’d let you in on our must-have skincare travel essentials.
María José's key travel-size skincare formulas
As someone who values preparation, I try to strike a balance between spontaneity and planning. However, as my husband is happy enough to flit from long mountain hikes to leisurely reading sessions on deserted beaches on the same day, I have to be prepared. With my combination skin that is prone to dehydration, the Phyto-Purifying Kit is an absolute must-have. Packed in a convenient cotton toiletry bag, it contains everything I need for a revitalising skincare routine after a day full of surprises.
Miguel Ángel's holiday skincare ritual
Most of the time, I take the opportunity to visit family who live in areas known for their high-temperature. Consequently, I pay close attention to transepidermal water loss. For me, facial mists are a must. Not only do they replenish moisture with their hydrating molecules, but they also contain antioxidants and soothing extracts. My favourite is Ultra Revitalising Elixir. It has been a game-changer in my skincare routine while on holiday.
Rebecca's secret for restful nights away
Travelling is one of my greatest passions, but I admit I always miss the comfort of my own bed. It takes me a while to adjust and sleep well during the first few nights away from home. That’s why my secret weapon is Nutritive Repair Emulsion. It ensures my skin gets the rest it needs, so I wake up feeling refreshed, without any tightness caused by lack of sleep.
Marilina's body care must-have
While I always make sure I have one of Twelve’s mini kits with me when I’m away, I never neglect my body care routine. Antioxidant Burst Shower Gel has been a revelation for my sensitive skin, and now it’s a constant companion wherever I go. No more irritated skin after my showers.
Nikos' skincare routine for exploring cities
I love exploring every nook and cranny of the cities I visit, which sometimes leaves me tired by the time I reach the hotel. That’s why I never compromise on my morning routine, and my go-to product is Ideal Rebalancing Level Serum. I’ve been using it since 2014, and it has truly transformed my skin. It makes me feel good, knowing that my skin is happy and well taken care of.
Pedro's refreshing weekend getaways with extra glow
Instead of long getaways, I prefer taking several weekend trips. Sometimes, I arrive at my destination feeling tired, so I make the most of my time in the hotel to rest and recharge. More than a product for my holiday, my skincare favourite is more for when I return home. Glow Island gives me a healthy summer glow without ever having to leave the hotel.
Pablo's skincare companion for European train adventures
My friends and I have pledged to visit Europe’s major capitals by train and the one skincare product that always accompanies me is Artemisia Power Protection SPF50+. For me, it’s the ultimate daily moisturiser with high sun protection, ensuring my skin is well protected as I admire iconic landmarks and purposefully get lost down less touristy streets.
