Traveling frequently can bring you both an adrenaline high and extreme fatigue. From international business trips to world exploration for fun, the constant movement we associate with travel, has been known to cause annoyance for our skin’s health. New climates, time zones, gastronomical options, or just not enough rest can generate trauma in the form of dryness, annoying acne and a dull complexion. For such emergencies or simple preventive purposes, it is essential you establish a skincare regime that you can take around anywhere with you as life’s temporary escapades pop up. On this blog post we will show some quick and easy tips on keeping your skin stunningly healthy even during all those appointments onboard!

Step 1 Keep it simple

When you’re planning a trip away, it’s not always easy navigating what to bring for your skincare routine. To make things simpler, try keeping it basic – pick out strategically packed items like cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen – oh and bonus points for multiples that are travel sized or miniaturized versions! However, if you can’t find everything you need in miniature sizes, why not look into picking up a skincare set made specially for the itinerant traveller? Easy enough to fit in your luggage and containing all of your favourites, these kits are the perfect way to transport all the basics without forgetting anything important.

Step 2 Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

One of the biggest challenges of exploring the world is navigating different climates. If you’re going from an arid cold climate to a hot, humid climate or the other way around, your skin will inevitably feel it. That’s why it’s important to invest in adequate skincare for your journey. To keep your skin hydrated, look for lightweight and non-greasy moisturizers that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water while ceramides seals moisture in and prevent dehydration. No matter where your wanderlust takes you, enhance your travel routine with a top-notch face moisturizer!

Step 3 Protect your skin from the sun

Even if you’re not headed to a sunny destination, it’s important to wear sunscreen every day. UV rays can penetrate clouds and windows, so your skin is still exposed even if you’re indoors or it’s overcast outside. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it liberally to your face, neck, and any other exposed areas at least 15 minutes before you head out.

Step 4 Use a gentle cleanser

Travel can leave your skin feeling dirty and congested. That’s why it’s important to cleanse your skin thoroughly every day. Use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Look for a formula that is pH-balanced and free of harsh chemicals like sulphates and parabens. If you’re prone to breakouts, choose a cleanser that contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to keep acne at bay.

Step 5 Pack a facial mist

Packing facial mist while traveling can be a real game changer; it’s not just a fancy skincare product, but the ultimate glamour hack! A mist containing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile or rosewater can instantly help soothe and refresh your skin when you’re feeling tired, especially after long journeys. Keep this miracle in a bottle with you at all times and you’ll never have to worry about dullness or dehydration again. Whenever you feel like taking a break from your travels, just unzip your carry-on and spritz it for an instant pick me up! Your skin will thank you later.

Step 6 Don’t forget your eyes

Traveling can really take its toll on your eyes. From lack of sleep to dry, recycled air in planes to feeling the exhaustion from jet lag, puffiness and dark circles can quickly become everyday problems that have you feeling less than fabulous. That’s why it’s so important to pack an eye cream for your trips! An eye cream with dynamic ingredients, such as caffeine to reduce puffiness, and vitamin C which helps brighten your delicate skin around the eyes will ensure you looking radiant throughout your journey. Before hitting up duty free for some beauty buys, make sure you look for those key elements before making a purchase!

Step 7 Stay hydrated.

Staying hydrated should definitely be a top priority when you’re traveling. Make sure you’re sipping on water throughout the day to make sure your insides (and of course, your skin!) stay hydrated. It’s definitely best to avoid alcohol and caffeine if you can help it – they can cause dehydration and take a toll on your complexion, making it look dull and lacking that special glow! So, whenever you feel thirsty while out exploring, just grab that water bottle or make a quick pit stop somewhere with H2O!

Step 8 Invest in a travel-friendly skincare kit

Investing in a travel friendly skincare kit is an easy way to ensure you can take your entire skincare routine with you on the go. Trying to find all those pesky travel sized versions of your favorite products consumes too much time and energy, so why bother when all you need is in one complete package. Plus, many brands offer these helpful kits, dreaming up a complete selection of staple skincare products tailored towards essentially any skin type or regimen. Best yet? A nifty finder bag keeps them all together, organized and easily accessible while out and about.

Step 9 Use a sheet mask

Sheet masks are a great way to give your skin a boost of hydration and nutrients while you’re on the go. They’re lightweight and easy to pack, and you can use them on the plane, in your hotel room, or even in the car. Look for sheet masks that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, or green tea, which can all help to brighten and hydrate the skin.

Step 10 Get plenty of rest

Traveling can be exhausting, so it’s definitely important to get your rest! It’s easy for lack of sleep to take a toll on you physically, making your skin look dull and tired. Make sure you’re giving yourself enough time for shut-eye if you want to feel and look refreshed at your destination. If that means adjusting your sleep schedule in advance, do it! Most importantly, don’t forget an eye mask and earplugs – these should definitely be part of your packing list! Taking care of yourself by getting enough rest is key when traveling long distances – trust us, you’re going to thank yourself later.

Final words

There’s no need to complicate matters when it comes to keeping up with your skincare routine while traveling. Begin by whetting your whistle! Staying hydrated is the most dependable source of dewy and nourished skin, no matter where life takes you.

Next, stock up on convenient travel products that can keep your complexion looking top-notch at all hours of the day and night.

Compact, pocket-sized skincare are supremely useful for eliminating any last-minute stress; because what better way to enjoy a trip than not having to worry about beauty maintenance? Pack those suitcases and bon voyage; let go trusting that your beautiful skin won’t be anything less that exquisite when your highly anticipated vacation ends.

Selma Durmo M. Pharm

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
