Men’s Beauty Vacation Essentials

Have your kit ready no matter the destination.

Your beauty regime should be made to fit your location. For sunny skies think SPF and protection. For cooler climates opt for moisture and hydration. Although, when it comes to travel, simplicity is key. No one wants to be packing a 12-step beauty regime (but we wouldn’t judge you if you did!). The more streamlined the better. Our top tip to keep your skin looking holiday ready is to have adjustments ready to be made according to your chosen destination. Find your guide for Men’s travel beauty essentials below.

Hitting the slopes

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin barrier. So, the next time you have a snow getaway booked, ensure hydration is the main character in your beauty regime.

When icy winds hit, The Jojoba Company’s Multi Defence Moisturiser will provide much-needed protection. Formulated with SPF, this moisturiser helps to protect the skin against environmental stressors.

When your skin needs a little extra TLC or is feeling red and raw, opt for La Roche Posay’s Cicaplast Soothing Balm. This powerhouse product is multi-use and helps to repair and restore the skin with its nourishing formula.

For those looking to nourish their beards and promote healthy, strong hair growth on the slopes and off, STMNT’s Beard Oil is a carry-on essential. Formulated with essential oils, it adds moisture and helps to soften and tame all beard types.

Our top pick for winter getaways would be Aesop’s Protective Lip Balm with SPF. Dry lips don’t have to go hand in hand with winter weather, as this nourishing balm provides a moisture barrier against the elements.

City Weekend getaway

A weekend getaway to a different city can be the perfect way to restore and reset.

As you explore the metropolis of the urban jungle, there are some products you can include in your kit to ensure your skin is prepped and protected. With a new city comes new pollution and stressors, so the Detox Extra Purifying Corrector Serum from Ella Bache is a great addition to keep your skin clarified.

The aptly named Dust it Off Exfoliating Powder from Urban Jungle does as its name suggests. We suggest using it twice a week to ensure any additional pollution is removed from your skin’s surface.

Another essential product for city living (and holidaying) is the Alpha H Essential Moisturiser with SPF 50. This face cream provides broad spectrum protection against UV rays and will prevent wrinkles and pigmentation.

A great way to keep you looking refreshed and rested is Kiehl’s Vitamin C Eye Serum. This potent product fights against dark circles and helps to brighten and even skin. Browse our top picks for a city getaway, below.

Self-care Break

You don’t always have to travel to go on holiday. Instead, opt for a staycation in which self-care is the focus.

Begin your self-care break by nourishing your body with the WellCo Super Elixir. With 45 whole food ingredients, you’ll be nourishing your body from the inside out.

For those looking to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, Medik8 Retinol Serum is the perfect way to reset. To help work the powerhouse ingredient of Vitamin A into your skin, reach for the Jade Facial Massage Duo for a relaxing spa-like experience.

If you’re still in need of further relaxation, The Klairs Calming Sheet Mask does as the name suggests. Infused with bamboo charcoal powder, the soothing benefits help to reduce redness and improve hydration of the skin.

Now that you’ve reset and restored your skin time to move on to your beard (if you have one). The Burly Beard pack comes with a pomade, oil and balm to give you an at-home barber experience. Browse our picks for self-care below.

Tropical Getaway

A tropical getaway calls for specific beauty kit essentials. Think protection against the elements. The Aspect Sun Hydrating Face SPF 50 gives you high, broad-spectrum protection against the tropical sun. Its lightweight, moisturising formula is perfect for the face as it doesn’t clog your pores.

For the rest of your skin, opt for La Roche Posay’s Wet Skin SPF. This product can be applied to wet skin, making it perfect for your tropical holiday activities, whether it’s lounging by the pool or the sea. For hot weather a powerful deodorant is essential.

The Clinique Happy For Men Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Stick offers powerful protection with a fresh citrus scent. Our top pick for your tropical getaway would be the Bye Bye Bugs Remedy Balm from Love Beauty Foods. This plant-powered balm wards off any bugs that threaten to ruin your tropical getaway.

The Davroe Deep Cleansing Shampoo is another great addition to your kit. This product works by rinsing away any chlorine or salt build-up which we all know can be an unwanted souvenir from tropical vacations.


Whether it’s the mountains or the bush, an adventure holiday calls for a fully stocked beauty kit to protect you against the elements. The Aspect Sun On the Go SPF offers great protection in convenient packaging that can be clipped onto your backpack.

As far as convenience goes the Eleven Dry Shampoo is another winner, offering clean hair with a few sprays.

For those who plan on being active on their adventure holidays, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Balm helps to soothe sore muscles and joints. Having this on hand ensures you won’t be out of action from your holiday activities for long.

In a similar vein, the Remedy Balm from Love Beauty Foods is a multi-purpose balm that can be applied to a myriad of ailments.

Whether it be sunburn, blisters or dry skin this ultra-nourishing product forms a protective barrier for the skin.

Lastly, Dr Bronner’s Hand Sanitiser offers clean hands in a travel-friendly spray bottle. The scent of lavender provided an added element of aromatherapy to help you relax on your holiday adventures. Browse through our picks for your adventure beauty kit.
