7 Skin Products to Use While TravelingLike25

It’s no secret I get gifted lots of wonderful products from great brands. My curiosity gets the best of me and I do try them all. My loyalty always stands by the products that delivers results for me and so, I have rounded up few of my favorite products I ALWAYS use during, pre and post my travel. Some I can carry around and some I just use right after a trip. I have to stress on the NARS foundation. It has helped so much for my everyday routine! I top it up with MAC NC 41 press louder sometimes at night. I also drink LOTS of water despite me not being a huge fan of Ho2!

Here are my thoughts on my 7 skin products to use while traveling (or when you come back home). What are yours? Any secrets you have to share with me?

CLARINS HAND CREAM

My first of  my 7 skin products to use while traveling is: Clarins’ award-winning Hand and Nail Cream is one of their most beloved products, and it’s easy to see why. An ultra-effective, intensively moisturising formula, it replenishes dry and fatigued hands to leave skin soft and supple. Nails are strengthened, age spots minismied and chapping and irritation soothed – just gently rub into the hands for long-lasting comfort and protection. I NEVER run out of it! I carry it everywhere I go and also keep a bottle in my car!

NUXE BODY SCRUB

Reve de Miel®’s scrub finely ground Rice Grains and melting white Sugar Crystals formula assure a very gentle exfoliation. In addition, the honey, nourishes the skin thanks to repairing and soothing properties. It is known for its rich content of sugars, anti-oxidant flavonoids, vitamins C, B2, B6, amino acids, mineral salts and trace elements, and it diffuses its benefits to preserve the skin barrier. 3 botanical oils (Sunflower, Argan and Borage Oils) and Shea butter have been added. Rich in essential fatty acids, they nourish and soften the skin.

CHANEL BLUE SERUM

In 2017, CHANEL created BLUE SERUM, an intense revitalizing serum to be used at the beginning of women’s beauty rituals for lastingly youngerlooking, firmer and healthier skin and makes it my second skin products to use while traveling! It concentrates three longevity ingredients consumed in regions of the world where people live better and longer.

DE MAMIEL SCRUB

My third of my 7 skin products to use while traveling is: The ultimate skin fix-it, this superfood powder for the face contains healing clays, plant and gem extracts to smooth and polish skin to reveal its natural radiance and glow. The wonderfully delicate rose aroma encourages deep breaths and relaxation. 

It’s a pure (and precious) treat – and the ultimate skin super booster to have on hand at all times.

Think of this as a green juice or vitamin fix with nutritious naturals such as water activated Vitamin C for its brightening effect, Colloidal Oat which reduces redness and inflammation and anti-oxidant rich Raw Cacao powders. All of these feed your complexion and help keep it radiant and healthy today. This potent powder has mineral packed Alea Hawaiian Sea Salt, Red Jasper and Rose Quartz gem powder, which physically buff away dead skin cells and revive skin whilst also working deeply to combat the ‘blah’ dulling effects of fast city living and staring at screens.

ESTEE LAUDER 3 MINUTE MASK

My travel secret to a 3 minute glowing face!! I simply adore this and use it regularly! A liquid-light clay mask that dries in minutes, drawing out built-up impurities to liven up lackluster skin.

NARS VELVET MATT FOUNDATION

Another long time travel secret! This oil-free formula wears comfortably, maintaining skin’s natural moisture barrier while working to control shine throughout the day. Transparent Blurring Powders help to blur imperfections, even the look of skintone, and smooth the appearance of pores and fine lines. The powders’ unique, spherical shape compresses like a cushion! It also have SPF so it acts like a perfect base for day and night! I am on my 3rd bottle!

LA MER EYE CREAM

I am notorious for puffy eyes!! This cream features a special, comfortable balm texture Boasts a patented silver-tipped applicator to cool skin & promote micro-circulation Formulated with new Marine De-Puff Ferment TM & The Lifting Ferment TM Enriched with The Miracle Broth TM for therapeutic properties Dissolves deeply into skin to transform its texture Reduces appearance of puffiness, lines & wrinkles.

  • Someone told me that I’m still glowing from my recent @travelwithtjd arctic trip. 
It put a huge smile on my face... because It’s true... I still feel it, that happiness and high... but I was also told that I wear my heart on my sleeve so, my ‘glow’ is inevitable. 
We fall in love with the person we become when we travel to places that sets your soul on fire... And you would do anything to hold on to it. 
Heading back to Lebanon for my last dose of winter & snowboarding with family & friends before heading back to the salty waters and flip flops. 
Have a beautiful week everyone and thank you for following along 💫
  • I’m not sure why I love this first picture a lot. It’s one of those things you can’t explain. 
I’ve always looked at rear view mirrors as walking away from something (Not necessarily bad) towards something greater that might or might not work and it’s somewhat comforting. 
I’m someone who loves their own space and comfortable on my own, most of the time at least. 
I’ve had times where things didn’t always go my way instantly but I knew it eventually will fall into place, and, it always does. 
I might have fallen flat on my face sometimes, and have underestimated my own capabilities in some moments... but, I’m more confident of my choices than I was when I first started my journey and what made me even braver, was my willingness to live up to these moments because in the end, it was all worth it.

  • We all crave isolation from time to time to get disconnected from whatever it is that keeps us awake at night. 
To just go, and say nothing and think nothing. 
We hope in the end that whatever you love always loves you back. The sami believes that when you are in nature, you are never afraid of being alone. 
Returning from a ‘letting go’ place such as the wilderness in Finland affects me emotionally and sets me off balance a little, because my happiness was always about following my heart, and so, I try to find my way back from a place of reality that is even far better than my dreams. #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • What an incredible emotional 10 days this has been! I’ve met the funniest, warmest and the most caring, thoughtful people on this @travelwithtjd and it’s so difficult say goodbye. We have created our own reality - pushed boundaries - fell in love with life - and set ourselves free from all judgments on ourselves. I’ll post more on stories and photos as soon as I land back home 💫
Thank you @hertz.uae for having such great service during our trip!
  • On this @travelwithtjd trip, I’m surrounded with people that makes me forget where my phone is, makes me laugh till my stomach hurts, help each other when you can’t feel your hands from the cold and makes my heart so full and filled with love, and we all know how much I love love ☺️. I’m back in Finland, creating our own realities with some of the most incredible people I have ever met. #travelwithtjd
  • From Tromso, to Dubai for a couple of days and now back to Finland for our next @travelwithtjd - I had few friends over at home yesterday for lunch @theitalianwayuae to say goodbye, leaving for almost 13 days but never thought leaving my little puppy was going to be this difficult!
  • On our last @travelwithtjd to Norway, we left @radissonblutromso to set sail in the Arctic in search of the Northern Lights and to experience sailing and sleeping out in the wilderness. 
4 nights and we were faced with an incredible storm, high winds, lots of rain and clouds but it didn’t stop some of us from dancing, fishing and sailing. That’s the real Arctic weather!
It was a mind blowing adventure and testing each one’s capabilities of being comfortable in uncomfortable situations. 
That’s what an adventure is really all about. Especially in the beautiful arctic. ❤️
  • I honestly didn’t know how to caption this story because there is a thousand words I want to say and a thousand reasons not to. 
This image speaks to me and I’ve imagined it and orchestrated in my head a thousand times and @dennisstever helped me capture it perfectly. 
It’s a liberating feeling to be able to stand at the edge with a cape with extreme wind and rain in your face and feel like a superhero. 
We are our own heroes. Not because we are about to change the world....But to change inside of us who struggle to make one small difference in their lives for themselves every day. 
I’m the type of girl who will have tears of joy or sadness running down my face and still insist that everything is fine. My glory isn’t just in the achievements, but in the sacrifices I have made to save myself. This is what this story image represents to me.

  • We are spoon fed with quotes on social media on the fake realm of positivity and sometime too much of it. 
The truth is, why should we avoid difficult situations? Why should we not get heartbroken? 
To be surrounded by ONLY positive people and those who ONLY inspire you is unrealistic and a recipe for not growing or truly finding out who you are. 
Because you will come across people in your life that can suck out the energy out of you and you will only learn to block them and manage your reaction when you have had a share of experiences. 
It takes real courage to stop pretending you have it all together and accept the challenges and grow. 
If we can allow ourselves to face it; we will experience life to its fullest. 
Being human means facing suffering. There is no light without dark, no joy without sadness. 
If we don’t experience all feelings, we have no basis for comparison. So accept the good and the bad without any judgement, know it’s human to feel both. 
Take your time to feel everything, but once you are done, get up, grow, break your own boundaries and not what others expects of you, and motivate yourself by learning to face and appreciating the challenges that comes your way. Too much positivity could also be lethal and not real. It’s how you learn to deal with it. 
At least that’s what I have learned, and I have felt my personal growth during those years. ❤️
  • I’ll always search for those breathless moments where I will no longer be sure if I am dreaming or awake. 
We drove in total 8 hours that day from Tromso to Senja along the coastline. I kept asking @dennisstever to pull over every 2 minutes so I can shoot but luckily he didn’t, otherwise we would have never reached here at sunset. 
Scandinavia is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to and that’s why I keep coming back and leave with a full heart... until it’s time to come back again. 
Follow our @travelwithtjd Journey and be part of our polar journeys. ❤️
  • One of the most liberating feeling in the world is being able to come back here over and over again and feeling so comfortable and happy. I took this yesterday while flying over tromso and although it was just taken with a phone camera, I think it still looks magical. I woke up at 4am today, excited to start the day, getting ready for the team of @travelwithtjd to start arriving and we set sail tomorrow in the Arctic wilderness. #travelwithtjd
  • The heaviness of the moon this month... so I say this: It’s ok if you lose yourself, I’ll be right here to help you find your way back 💫
