Small and compact, they fit into your suitcase without taking up too much space: the mini sizes are perfect for taking all your beauty routine to the most remote corners of the planet. Without worrying about airport checks.
Every beauty addicted knows it: when it’s time to pack, it is almost impossible to decide which products to bring with you so as not to give up even one step of your beauty routine. Luckily there are mini sizes! Travel formats, compact and easy to carry, which contain all the power of the best skincare ingredients in just a few milliliters. Of course, because the beauty routine on vacation is even more important. In fact, once the stress is removed, it is time to dedicate the best care to the skin, to grant the best summer relaxation to the face, body and hair.. That’s why not only the best organic sun creams will have to find a place in your suitcase, but also serums and lotions that fight free radicals, pollution and UV rays with powerful anti-aging combinations based on vitamin C, niacinamide and botanical extracts. Products suitable for everyday use, but condensed in sizes of 50ml or less.
Travel and mini size: the essential products for the skin
The mini-size beauty routine should be nothing more than a copy of your home skincare. From cleansing to moisturizing face cream, through body and hair products, you shouldn’t miss anything during the holidays. The skin, in fact, needs to be well cleaned and hydrated even if you spend time away from the city and from pollution. Of course, for a few weeks you can give up detox and purifying face masks and scrubs, but nothing more: do not forget, in fact, that the change in climate can really put the skin to the test, which could be affected by environmental stress. This is why the holiday beauty routine must be targeted, designed according to your skin type: light gel textures or nourishing butters, impalpable serums or moisturizing oils, matte or glowy effect creams. The key to choosing the best mini sizes? The customization. And sunscreen, because UV protection can never be missing.
