It goes without saying that breaking out before a big trip is kinddddd of the worst. How are you supposed to get good pics for the gram if there’s a pimple the size and color of mars on your face? Well, there’s always Facetune. But, forget that for a second, because we care about looking fantastic IRL, too.
Here are some of our favorite products that we pack along to combat both the occasional stubborn blemish and long-term acne-- and it should go without saying that they’re all non-toxic. So, you can definitely look au naturale in all your cute travel photos— especially since filters are so passé. (Wait, also, remember when Valencia was a thing?)
Grown Alchemist Blemish Treatment
Have a pimple that just won’t quit? This advanced spot treatment contains Salicin, a powerful natural anti-bacterial agent that effectively treats breakouts and blemishes. Rich in antioxidants that visibly calm the skin, it fights breakouts without drying or irritating.
Okay, so we’re kind of obsessed with Nerd Skincare, so the next couple of products are all about them. Their mission is to keep your skin clear for the long haul while using exciting *science* by including ingredients that naturally neutralizes acne for long-term, clear skin. Sign me up, please?!
While their products are on the more expensive side—but, like, how can you really put a price on acne-free skin?—this cleanser is only $20, so that’s kind of a steal.
While still fighting acne, this anti-aging serum contains plant stem cells that work with your skin’s natural repair processes to soften and delay signs of aging like fine lines, dark spots, and dullness.
Designed for skin depleted by harsh treatments like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and retinoid, this luxurious moisture cream helps skin heal and repair its natural acne-fighting defenses. Oh, it also feels like clouds rubbing against your face. So that’s pretty cool.
Skin feeling congested? Need a good pick-me-up on the road? Check this out: A deeply cleansing clay masque formulated to detoxify the skin's appearance while noticeably improving skin firmness. It leaves skin looking visibly revitalized, decongested, and feeling smooth, toned and prepared for moisturizing.
Clear skin, for the win. Today, and always. Makes life (and instagram) so much easier.
