This might not be my normal travel blog post but it is what every girl/woman loves to read! Skin Care girls!

As a traveller ( I don’t travel that much *hmm*) my skin get damaged easily and if I don’t take the time to take care of it, baby will get angry.

I used to have a very bad skin before I leave for Turkey, but with all the free time I had in Istanbul, I was introduced to the world of youtube and it’s where I got my knowledge.

The most important part about taking care of your skin is knowing your skin type, for me I have an Oily/acne prone skin which means ALOT of work and pimples *sad face*.

I will divide this to my Morning routine and my night routine, FYI I am a very lazy person so this will be the easiest routine ever.

While traveling you need to carry on only the essentials because of the obvious reason YOU HAVE NO SPACE!

  • Please note although I am using Neutrogena products but this post is not sponsored by them.

Morning Routine

Clarisonic brush

I started using this a year ago and my skin has shifted.

Plus points: it is small, it will get the job done and it will clean your deepest pores.


Neutrogena Spot Stress Control

We all get a little bit stressed during our trips and this will prevent spots, it is magical, seriously it’s one of ultimate hauls. You can use whenever you feel there is a pimple trying to come out.


Neutrogena 2 in 1 ( Mask + Wash)

You can use the above or this one to get clean in the morning. This can be used both as a mask or as a cleanser so if you have a little extra time give your baby some love.

After preparing the skin some might use Cleansing lotion, However I noticed it made my skin very dry and I just was’t comfortable using it.

Moving to cream, I used to use Loreal day cream for my age group, it was OKish.

After it finished I searched for products that are more gel based and gurl I found it in Neutrogena gel cream!! Just Amazing, my skin was less oily and more fresh.

Fast forward to night routine, after along day of walking and discovering, it’s time to remove makeup give your skin a little me time and have a good night sleep!

Removing Makeup two ways:

Either by Neutrogena Hydro boost facial wipes SIMPLY wonderful and it will keep it hydrated through the weather change between countries.


Use Bioderma Make-up Remover and remove everything then hydrate your face  with any type of Oil you have, Oil keeps your skin fresh and ready to rock the next day.


Lastly you are beautiful just the way you are <3, Thank you for reading this not so travel related post and wish you a great day ahead!!
