Beauty Tips for Backpacking Girls


A good first impression never hurt any girl backpacker meeting new friends. Just because backpackers are often on the road and live on what they can carry, it doesn’t mean care for your physical appearance goes out the window. There are ways to keep on looking great on the go without packing half of your makeup drawer.

Before packing for your trip, be on the lookout for multi-purpose products in convenient travel sizes. Tinted moisturizers with SPF will also work as foundation. There are also stains and crèmes that for your lips, eyes and cheeks. If you like fragrances, you can get good lightly scented lotions for the same effect.

Travel can also bring out the best and worst in your hair at unpredictable instances. Using shampoo with high moisture content is ideal, but if you cannot cut on the products you are used to, just re-pack them in travel bottles or get them in disposable packaging. If a hair dryer is a must in your routine, bring a compact one with an auto-volt function.

Your skin needs the most attention and maintenance. A simple but effective way of combating the drying effects on your skin brought about by changing climates is drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. Pre-moistened cloths or baby wipes are great for keeping your skin hydrated and double as makeup removers.

Remember that less is more. The most important beauty accessory you will have throughout your trip is a winning disposition. Be confident and have fun!
