How to exfoliate skin when you are traveling

When you travel, your skin joins you on the adventure. You may be sweating more than usual on a hike, dealing with dry air on a plane, or stressing with your in-laws on a family vacation. To help your skin adjust to a new environment, bring as much of your regular routine with you on the road. That includes more than just cleansing and moisturizing; it’s important to exfoliate to rid your skin of the dead skin cells and impurities that build up no matter where you are or how much you’d like to avoid a breakout. Here are a few methods of exfoliation to pack into your next toiletry bag:

Exfoliating Scrub

An exfoliating cleanser helps to smooth and refine your skin while lifting oil and impurities. Try a gentle exfoliating scrub formulated for daily use to save time on the road. A cleanser that doubles to exfoliate your skin will help slough off the dead skin cells, dirt and oil that gather on your skin throughout the day and leave your skin feeling refreshed and soft. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub is ideal for oily, breakout-prone skin.


Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you need to leave your anti-aging routine behind. Retinol and pro-retinol are Vitamin A derivatives that help reduce fine lines and fight the appearance of aging. Retinol is also a chemical exfoliant, meaning it works from the inside out to shed dead skin cells and increase cell turnover. Travel with a double-duty product like Garnier SkinActive Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Serum + Moisturizer, formulated with retinol, Vitamin E, and rice peptides, to hydrate while it fights wrinkles. After you use a retinol-based product, make sure you top your skin with a moisturizing SPF to help protect you from UVA and UVB rays.


Every travel toiletry bag should include a pack of towelettes. You’ll be able to refresh your face or cleanse on-the-go instantly, plus help refine your skin with the physical exfoliation of a gentle towelette. Try Garnier SkinActive Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes with charcoal extracts to help draw lift dirt, makeup and impurities off of your skin.
