How To: Take Care of Your Skin While Traveling

Space is limited when traveling with one carry-on, but Colleen Rothschild Beauty has the perfect travel-size goodies of all its essentials.

 

[one_half]Hi loves,

If you have followed me for some time now, you must know that I only travel with a carry-on. Yep, that’s right! But even though space is somewhat limited and quite a commodity, I never leave my must-have skincare products behind. You probably also know that I’ve raved about Colleen Rothschild Beauty ever since I shared this on my Instagram feed, and that is why today I have partnered with this amazing skincare line to share how you don’t need to sacrifice your skincare routine while traveling.

First, let’s rewind to a few weeks before my trip to Europe (in May), when I posted on my Instagram Stories that I had come across Colleen Rothschild’s Discovery Collection. The collection includes seven of the brand’s must-haves in a travel-ready bag, including my favorite cleanser (#TotalScore). Not only was I able to continue my skincare routine while abroad, but I happened to try other products, that I have now come to love.

Now, let’s fast forward to August, where the next travel destination was sunny Punta Cana (read & see more about it here). I, of course, packed my new favorite travel-size goodies, so allow me share how I use them:

 

Step 1 | Radiant Cleansing Balm

This is one of my favorites because it is nothing like other cleansers I’ve used before. It is formulated to remove impurities, clear congested pores and dissolve eye and face makeup. Every night, after I remove my makeup with a wipe (and even if I am not wearing makeup) I rub a dollop size in my fingertips and massage all over my skin; I use circular motions until a subtle lather is created. I then use the muslin clothe (that’s included) and run it in warm water. I wring it damp and remove the product from my face.

[/one_half][one_half_last]¡Hola mis amores!

Si me han seguido durante algún tiempo, deben saber que yo sólo viajo con un equipaje de mano. ¡Sí! es cierto. Pero a pesar de que el espacio es un poco limitado y hasta un lujo, nunca dejo mis productos esenciales de cuidado de la piel detrás. Probablemente también saben que he elogiado a Colleen Rothschild Beauty desde que compartí esto en mi perfil de Instagram, y es por eso que hoy me he unido con esta increíble línea para compartir cómo no necesitas sacrificar tu rutina de cuidado de la piel mientras viajas.

En primer lugar, vamos hacia atrás, a unas pocas semanas antes de mi viaje a Europa (en mayo), cuando publiqué en mis Historias de Instagram que había encontrado el kit Discovery Collection. La colección incluye siete de que la marca considera como fundamentales, en una bolsa de viaje, incluyendo mi limpiador facial favorito. No sólo pude continuar mi rutina de cuidado de la piel mientras viajaba, pero pude probar otros productos, que ahora he llegado a amar.

Vamos a avanzar a agosto, donde mi siguiente destino fue la tropical ciudad de Punta Cana (lea y vea mas sobre el aquí). Yo, por supuesto, empaqué de nuevo mis nuevas golosinas, así que permítanme compartir cómo las uso:

 

Paso 1 | Radiant Cleansing Balm

Este es uno de mis favoritos, ya que no es nada como otros limpiadores faciales que he utilizado antes. Está formulado para eliminar las impurezas, despejar los poros congestionados y disolver el maquillaje de los ojos y cutis. Cada noche, después de quitar mi maquillaje con una toallita (y aun si no esté usando maquillaje) froto un poco en la punta de mis dedos y aplico en toda mi piel; utilizo movimientos circulares hasta que se crea espuma. A continuación, utilizo la toalla que está incluida, la mojo en agua tibia y retiro el producto de mi rostro.

Step 2 | Clarifying Detox Mask or Dual Enzyme Polish

Here is another product to ensure your skin is free of pollutants, and ladies it sure does the trick! This charcoal mask works wonders to remove trapped dirt; its main ingredient draws out pore clogging impurities. But what makes it really especial is that contains glycolic acid. It’s gentle yet very effective, leaving your complexion balanced and fresh. And unlike other charcoal masks I’ve used, does not leave your skin stripped or dehydrated. I use it every other day, for 10 minutes, after cleansing. My favorite thing about it is the minty feeling it leaves behind.

The Dual Enzyme Polish is another mask that is ideal when you feel that your skin needs an extra pick-me-up. It is formulated to remove dull cells from the skin’s surface with microspheres. It exfoliates with its fruit enzymes and leaves the skin refined and radiant. I use this twice a week (alternating it with the above Clarifying Detox Mask) and use circular motions while applying it. I leave it on for 10 minutes and remove.

 

Step 3 | Sheer Renewal Cream

This oil-free cream provides continuous hydration and it helps promote new cell turnover. I love that it creates a light breathable barrier against environmental factors and works great under makeup. I apply it every night after I use a mask (mentioned above) and in the morning before heading out.

 

Step 4 |  Extreme Recovery Cream  or Face Oil No. 9

I’ve shared in the past that I suffer from dry skin, and this has worked wonders in providing a higher level of moisture when I need an extra boost of hydration. I use it when needed after applying the Sheer Renewal Cream (mentioned above).

Face oils are undeniably the latest craze in skincare and Face Oil No. 9 combines nine transformative oils that provide an intense moisture boost. It nourishes skin and leaves your complexion radiant and ready to combat dehydration. I apply 2-3 drops onto my face and décolleté and alternate it between the Extreme Recovery Cream (mentioned above) ever so often. And it’s one of my favorite products to apply before my makeup when I know my skin needs the boost.

And ladies, all these products are great for every skin type! From acne-prone to oily and young to aging. Just because I have dry skin, does not mean they won’t work for you. And guess what? For a limited time, you can use code MEI20 to get a 20% discount at checkout (until September 19). If you haven’t yet tried any of these products now is your chance.

PS: I am currently without power due to hurricane Irma, but I was able to go to a nearby Starbucks to power up some essentials (cell, laptop, external cell charger, etc.) and publish this post for you all. In fact, I wrote it a few days ago when I needed some distraction while hurricane Irma was passing by Miami.

Paso 2 | Clarifying Detox Mask Dual Enzyme Polish

Aquí tienen otro producto para asegurar que su piel esté libre de contaminantes, y chicas les aseguro que ¡sí lo hace! Esta máscara de carbón trabaja maravillas para eliminar la suciedad atrapada; su ingrediente principal saca las impurezas y obstrucciones de los poros. Pero lo que la hace realmente especial es que contiene ácido glicólico. Es ligera pero muy eficaz, dejando tu cutis balanceado y fresco. Y a diferencia de otras máscaras de carbón que he usado, no deja la piel seca. La uso cada dos días, durante 10 minutos, después del limpiador facial. Me encanta la sensación de mentol que deja atrás.

Dual Enzyme Polish es otra máscara que es ideal cuando sienten que su piel necesita una extra ayuda. Está formulada para eliminar las células muertas de la superficie de la piel con micro esferas. Exfolia con sus enzimas de fruta y deja la piel refinada y radiante. La uso dos veces por semana (alternándola con la Clarifying Detox Mask que mencione arriba) y utilizo movimientos circulares mientras la aplico. La dejo durante 10 minutos y la retiro.

 

Paso 3 | Sheer Renewal Cream

Esta crema, sin aceite, proporciona una hidratación continua y ayuda a promover la renovación de las células en la piel. Me encanta que crea una barrera transpirable contra los factores ambientales y funciona muy bien bajo el maquillaje. La aplico cada noche después de usar una máscara (mencionada anteriormente) y en la mañana antes de salir de casa.

 

Paso 4 | Extreme Recovery Cream  o Face Oil No. 9

He compartido en el pasado que sufro de piel seca, y esta crema ha funcionado maravillas para proporcionar un mayor nivel de hidratación. La uso cuando sea necesario después de aplicar la Sheer Renewal Cream (mencionada anteriormente).

Aceites faciales son, sin duda, la última moda en el cuidado de la piel y el Face Oil No. 9 combina nueve aceites que proporcionan un impulso intenso de hidratación. Nutre la piel y deja tu cutis radiante. Aplico 2-3 gotas en mi cara y la alterno entre la Extreme Recovery Cream (mencionada arriba) a menudo. Este uno de mis productos favoritos para aplicar antes de mi maquillaje cuando sé que mi piel necesita un impulso para combatir la deshidratación.

Y chicas, todos estos productos trabajan para todo tipo de cutis. Desde piel grasa y propensa a acné. Sólo porque tengo la piel seca, no significa que no funcionará para ustedes. ¿Y adivinen qué? Por un tiempo limitado, pueden usar el código MEI20 para obtener un 20% de descuento en su compra (hasta septiembre 19). Si aún no ha probado ninguno de estos productos ahora es su oportunidad.

PS: Actualmente no tengo electricidad debido al huracán Irma, pero pude ir a un Starbucks cercano para cargar algunos elementos esenciales (celulares, computadoras portátiles, iPads, cargadores del móvil externos, etc.) y publicar este post para ustedes. De hecho, lo escribí hace unos días cuando necesitaba distracción mientras el huracán Irma pasaba por Miami.
