Traveling and not sure what skin care products to pack? Our Toronto medical spa team has put together the best products to use while you are away, so you don’t have to worry about anything other than catching your flight.
Traveling can wreak havoc on your skin, no matter your destination. The skin will react to stress, pollution, sun, and lack of oxygen and moisture in the air, creating a chain reaction of effects such as dryness, puffiness and dullness.
The key to looking your very best when you reach your destination is a good night’s sleep and even better skin care products. Our travel kit features an array of products to help combat the signs of travel, giving the skin back its radiant glow.
JET-SETTER’S TRAVEL KIT

4. Crème VIP 02 – Biologique Recherche

The best-kept secret of the elite, this cream mask is a must for frequent travelers. The repairing, revitalizing and protective properties of vernix, which mimics the original composition of the newborn’s vernix, is ideal for restoring and strengthening the protective barrier function of the skin, while preserving and revamping the hydration levels.

8. Défatiguant Patches – Biologique Recherche
I would add to the travel kit this Biologique Recherche’s “Défatiguant Patches”, which is an eye mask to help remove the fatigued look, dryness, and puffiness often seen after long flights. It is essential when traveling afar.
