Dude, Do You Even Have A Travel Skincare Program?

This summer goes something like this:

Chicago. New York. Nashville. Las Vegas. Los Angeles. New York [again].  San Jose.

 Other Travel Adventures: when you are trying to host a LIVE video and the wind gets in the way.

Yes, I travel a lot! Sometimes, I forget what city I’m in. It’s true! A lot of my travel is to work with the National Aesthetic Spa Network, I help by interviewing their sponsors, speakers and attendees. At a recent NASNPRO event I was doing a LIVE interview and welcomed everyone to the WRONG City!

Traveling so much makes me a pro at recreating the comforts of home on the road! I have learned how to get all my healthy snacks, running sneakers, dress shoes and several cute looks into a carry-on. I have a sure-fire method of packing to ensure that I have everything I need in a small, concise carry-on. But that carry on makes getting all of my favorite skincare products to my destination with me! That darn FAA 3 oz limitation, makes it a bit of a challenge.  

But no fear! I have some travel tips for you so you can bring some of the best skincare products in the industry with you whenever you travel. I’ve found some great products that are under 3 oz in their regular retail packaging.

Barry’s Summer Travel-Sized Essentials!


Mojito Soap from SoapBox

This is a local Philly soap store that I’m obsessed with. I will NOT use any other soap. I travel with this soap in a plastic bag! Olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, sugar, green clay, distilled water, sodium hydroxide, essential oils of lime and spearmint.

Saffron Meristem Cream by Hale & Hush

Saffron Meristem Cream is a luxurious comfort cream loaded with numerous key ingredients for the complete corneotherapy care of your dry, sensitive clients. It contains Shea butter and the special complexes listed below to moisturize, calm redness and irritation, nourish and repair the skin barrier. This helps strengthen the stratum cornea in order to protect against daily wear and tear from environmental toxins.  The exciting part, however, is the Saffron Meristems. Saffron is well-known as one of the world’s most expensive spices. Hale & Hush is one of the first skincare brands to use Saffron Meristems. The Meristems (think plant stem cells) contain all the power of Saffron to provide antioxidant, anti-aging and brightening benefits.


Sport Shield SPF 45 by ClearChoice®

Sport Shield SPF 45 is a combination block and light moisturizer for daily use on the face (non-comedogenic), chest, hands and arms. Not only will you be getting UV protection, but your skin will be replenished with vitamins and antioxidants.


I love all of these products and would highly recommend them to anyone!  The standouts in this are my 2nd favorite overall sunscreen [Sport Shield SPF 45 by ClearChoice®], my first love is the Light Day Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 37 by Circadia, but the Sport Shield fits better in the bag!  If you’re looking for some new travel essentials or just essentials that help aging skin look younger and better, give any one of these a try!
