Save Your Skin From Travel

Save Your Skin From Travel

Planning a sunny getaway? While you've been thinking about your beachside outfits, don't forget your skincare routine. Here's how to keep your skin in top shape with StackedSkincare products.

Prevent Breakouts

Airplane air can dry out your skin, causing it to produce excess sebum and leading to breakouts. To avoid this:

  1. Night Before Flight: Exfoliate with the Dermaplaning Tool and apply the TCA Multi-Acid Face Peel.
  2. Day of Flight: Cleanse your skin, apply serums, moisturizers, and SPF.
  3. During Long Flights: Cleanse your face mid-flight and reapply serums and SPF.
  4. Upon Arrival: Cleanse again and reapply serums, moisturizer, and SPF to control oil and prevent breakouts and hyperpigmentation.


Airplane humidity is around 10%, so hydration is key. Use a combination of humectants, emollients, and occlusives.


Attract and retain moisture. Use our HA Hydrating Serum with multi-weight hyaluronic acid. They are water-loving ingredients that form bonds with water molecules, pulling moisture into your skin from its lower layers and the surrounding environment. A common humectant is hyaluronic acid (HA).

HA can hold an impressive 1000 times its weight in water. To make the most of HA, opt for a serum like our HA Hydrating Serum, formulated with multi-weight HA and lactic acid to deliver hydration deep into your skin.


Enhance skin texture and add moisture. Our Microbiome Rescue Moisturizer contains ceramides to restore skin barrier function.

Our Microbiome Rescue Moisturizer has a ceramide complex that restores skin barrier function to minimize redness and irritation while restoring skin softness and health.


Seal in moisture and prevent water loss. Unlike emollients or humectants, which add moisture, occlusives focus on preserving and locking in the skin's hydration levels. They prove especially valuable for individuals with dry or very dry skin, helping maintain essential moisture.

Our Shiunko Face Oil offers a multitude of benefits for your skin. It protects your barrier, prevents water loss, and is infused with fermented botanicals to effectively reduce redness. It also protects against environmental irritants and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, resulting in a smoother and more resilient complexion.

Protect Your Skin

Sun protection is crucial to prevent cancer, premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation:

  1. SPF: Use a physical sunscreen with zinc oxide. Reapply every few hours and avoid spray formulas for reliable coverage.  To learn the best SPF for you, check out this blog
  2. Antioxidants: Apply products with antioxidants under your SPF for added protection. Our Microbiome Moisturizer and Firming Eye Complex contain astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant.

By following these tips and using StackedSkincare products, your skin will stay clear, hydrated, and protected during your travels.

Enjoy your getaway with confidence!
