Travel Essentials: Packing a TSA-Approved Beauty Routine

Traveling with your beauty essentials can be a challenge, especially when you’re limited to a carry-on. We've compiled everything you need to know and consider while packing your beauty bag so you can maintain your glow throughout your travels!

Remember TSA Guidelines for Liquids: 

The TSA's 3-1-1 rule for carry-on luggage is simple but crucial:

  • 3: Liquids must be in containers of 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less.
  • 1: All containers must fit into a single, clear, quart-sized plastic bag.
  • 1: Each passenger is allowed one quart-sized bag.

Essentials to Pack:

  1. Cleanser: Opt for a solid cleanser bar or cleansing wipes to save space and avoid liquid restrictions. If you prefer a liquid cleanser, transfer it into a travel-sized bottle. Our Picks: Laurel Essential Lipids (it also doubles as a moisturizer), Josh Rosebrook Complete Moisture Cleanser, Living Libations Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever Oil (it also doubles as a facial oil and available in a 30ml format)
  2. Toner: You may think you can skip this step while on holiday, but make space for it in your bag as it is a hydrating essential, which is especially important when flying due to extremely dry cabin air. Our Picks: Laurel Elixir I, Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator
  3. Moisturizer/ Face Oil: A concentrated multi-purpose "treatment" moisturizer or oil-based serum is a must to condition and protect the skin. A travel-sized version or a solid oil is ideal. Our Picks: Laurel Unburden Serum, Eminence Camellia Glow Solid Facial Oil, LILFOX Marshmallow Poof
  4. Travel Skin Routine Kits: These are ideal as they have everything you need in travel sizes. As a bonus, you can keep the containers (make sure to thoroughly clean them) to refill in the future. Our Picks: Laurel Revive + Replenish Travel Set, LILFOX Sun Box, Josh Rosebrook Renew Discover Kit, Eminence Clear Skin Kit (Great for travelling with teens!)
  5. Sunscreen: A must-have for any travel beauty routine. Go for a mineral sunscreen in a travel-friendly size, ensuring it’s under 3.4 ounces. Our Picks: Salt & Stone Lightweight Sheer Sunscreen, Forah Surf Balm, Eminence Sun Defense Mineral Powder Sunscreen
  6. Makeup: Keep it minimal with a tinted SPF, a multi-use coverage pot, cheek and lip tint, and a travel-sized mascara. These items will keep you looking fresh without overpacking. Our Picks: Ere Perez Arnica All-over pot, Wonder Blush La Laque Lip Oil, Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara, Eminence Daily Defense Tinted SPF, Ere Perez Essential Mini Brush Set
  7. Hair Care: Solid shampoo and conditioner bars are perfect for travel. They’re compact, lightweight, and won’t count towards your liquid limit. Bring a small travel-sized hair treatments to tame any frizz. Our Picks: Good Juju Shampoo Bars, Rahua Travel Minis, Rahua Leave-In Treatment
  8. Extras: Don’t forget deodorant, toothpaste, and a small pack of makeup remover wipes. These essentials will keep you fresh and clean throughout your journey. Our Picks: Kaia Naturals Sweat Powder (Stay dry all day, all over!), Salt & Stone Natural Deodorant, Kaia Naturals Vitamin Cleansing Cloths, Living Libations Healthy Gums Toothpaste

    Packing Tips:

    • Invest in Travel Containers: Purchase a set of reusable travel bottles and containers. These are perfect for transferring your favourite products into TSA-friendly sizes.

    • Use a Clear Toiletry Bag: A clear, quart-sized bag is a must for your liquids. This will make the security process smoother and ensure you comply with TSA regulations.

    • Solid Options: Whenever possible, opt for solid versions of your beauty products. They’re convenient, space-saving, and hassle-free.

    • Double-Duty Products: Choose products that serve multiple purposes to save space and simplify your routine.

    Traveling light doesn’t mean sacrificing your beauty routine. By following these tips and sticking to TSA guidelines, you can look and feel your best wherever you go.

    Happy travels!
