In our humble opinion, the number one travel mistake most people make is not bringing enough skincare! On short weekend trips or long vacations, a good skincare routine is essential to keeping our skin glowing even when we aren’t at home. Whether you’re someone who has a simple regimen with just the basics, or a skincare addict who loves trying new trends and thoroughly enjoys multiple-step skincare, Botnia is for you.
With our new aluminum bottles, it’s easier than ever to travel with Botnia! Aluminum is lightweight and easily fits into our travel roll which keeps your products all safe together in your handbag or suitcase. It’s important to think about where you’ll be arriving and prep your travel bag with the skincare essentials that you’ll need for the environment of your destination so your skin can stay healthy and happy during and after your trip!
Skin Minimalist approach for the traveler: 3-step skincare
We like to keep things simple. A cleanser, toner, and moisturizer are all you truly need for a solid skincare routine.
Our Starter Set is the perfect introduction to Botnia and features three best-selling products that work for all skin types! With the basics needed to keep your skin clean and clear, this is a great set for easy-going, minimalist travelers.
We also created a three-step Dry Skin set which includes all the products you need to quench dry and dehydrated skin - especially if you’re traveling to a place that’s cold or dry in humidity.
New environments can introduce pathogens your skin may not be used to, especially when traveling, you’ll want to make sure you’re cleansing your skin at the end of the day to get rid of any dirt, grime, and sweat that may have accumulated during the day. A toner will help keep your barrier intact and healthy. Complete your regimen with a moisturizer to lock in all the goodness and keep your skin protected from the elements.
Skin Maximalist approach for the traveler: 4+ step skincare
For those who want a little extra oomph in their routine or if you’re targeting something specific for your skin, our four-step routines are a great place to start. Each curated with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and serum, these are also great entry regimens for anyone new to Botnia.
Four-step routines include our Acne-prone skin set, Oily/congested skin set, and Wise skin set. Each of the serums chosen for these sets helps to target the specific condition for those skin types. If you’re looking for a more customized regimen for your unique skin, you can always fill out our skin survey and one of our Botnia Master Estheticians will curate a skincare regimen specifically for you!
Don’t forget, you can always add our powdered masks to your kit which are super easy to travel with in their compostable pouches. Each pouch has two mask servings and can be used with our travel Essential Enzymes or mixed with a hydrosol.
Our travel-sized Body Cream is also a great addition to keep your skin supple no matter where you are in the world!
How to use Botnia products in more ways than one
Getting the most out of your skincare doesn’t require pump counting or rationing your products. Finding multi-use products is so helpful to eliminate extra weight and time while you’re on the go.
Wherever you travel this season, it’s always a good idea to bring your skincare routine with you. And trust us, your skin will thank you!
We love our Essential Enzymes which is both a cleanser that can also be used as a mask on its own or mixed in with one of our powdered masks as a mask base. It comes in a travel size as well, perfect to throw into your toiletry bag.
Another multi-use product we love is our travel Rose Geranium Hydrosol. Use in place of a toner, as a quick refreshing tonic for your skin throughout the day, or in a mask mixture - this hydrosol does it all!
If you have our Soothing Repair Mask, you already know it works to deeply soothe overly sun-kissed skin or dry and dehydrated skin. It can also be used as a mask base with our powdered masks or left on overnight for extra hydration. Additionally, we love mixing this mask with our foaming face washes to use it as a luxurious shaving cream that can be used all over the body. This bottle still fits TSA requirements, or you can easily decant it into another container.
Our Eye Cream can also be used as an all-over face cream that has no added essential oils which is great for the eye area or those with sensitivities to scents. In a pinch, any of our face creams or facial oils can also be used as a body moisturizer.
