It’s travel season, and whether you’re heading out on a weekend road trip or flying abroad, you are always tasked with packing light while also wondering how to fit in your beauty essentials.

No matter where your travel destination is there is a chance that you will be confined in one area with other passengers. Can you imagine the amount of bacteria and chemicals that circulate throughout the air? Not only can recycled air be damaging, but changes in climate, humidity, and sunlight can cause your skin and hair to react negatively, as well.


The team at Summit Salon Academy cares about your beauty inside and outside of the salon, so we have created a list of a few easy beauty necessities to keep in mind while packing for your travels.



Whether traveling by car, plane, or train your skin and hair is prone to become dry due to low humidity. Once you cleanse your skin it is necessary to follow up with a moisturizer that has natural antioxidants or use natural oils which lessen negative reactions to environmental changes. To renew hair moisture you can use products such as RedKen All Soft Heavy Cream Super Treatment Mask to replenish moisture within your hair as well as control frizz.



With all that your skin is naturally exposed to during traveling, it is a good idea to keep your makeup use to a minimum. But for the times when you want to switch it up here are a few products to keep in mind. Pack a light foundation or BB cream that has SPF protection to make sure you are still taking care of your skin while being exposed to the sun. Swap out your drying lipsticks with tinted lip balms. Tinted lip balms serve as a perfect  way to finish your night time look while also keeping your lips moisturized.


Nail Polish

Ever look down at your nails while on-the-go and noticed that your polish has chipped? Well, don’t let a chipped nail get in the way, always pack backup polish!


Hair Accessories

Always look out for those bad hair days! Hair ties, scarves, and hats are lifesavers when it comes to bad hair days or even just getting your hair out of your face for awhile.
