How To Save Your Skin While Traveling

This blog post is sponsored by Olay

Traveling (particularly long-haul flying) really takes a toll on my skin and can cause breakouts and dry patches no matter what I do. Seeing as I’ve been traveling so much this Summer (Mexico for work, England for a month, Malibu for Labor Day, New York for Fashion Week) I knew I’d need something with me to keep my face happy. I’ve traveled around the world and tried a lot of products but Olay Red Jar moisturizers are the best by far. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time and their trusty moisturizers have been in my bag for every trip this Summer. Read my top tips for keeping your skin soft during your travels and how you can save tired skin on-the-go.

Invest in a good moisturizer

I’ve found a skincare routine that’s really working for my skin and once you’ve found yours, it makes such a difference to how your skin reacts to traveling and tiredness. I’ve been using two of Olay’s Red Jar products for almost a year and have really noticed that my post-traveling skin is happier than it has ever been before. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is thick (without being greasy) and so really helps to build up moisture in my skin. On a long flight I will put this on as much as I can so that my skin always has a good barrier. The Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer (which Mackenzie keeps stealing) has SPF 25 in it but also sits really well under makeup as a primer or even over the top when I need a bit of extra sun protection. It’s so light and goes on matte so it really feels like having a mini facial – which I love!

Drink water

And I mean LOTS of water. Your body dehydrates at an alarming rate when you’re flying so it’s more important than ever to keep drinking water. You will really notice how much fresher you look coming off a plane if you’ve kept your hydration levels topped up.


It may sound obvious and isn’t always easy but sleeping as much as possible on a long haul flight will not only help you adjust to a big time difference (London is 8 hours ahead of LA which is huge) but your skin will reap the rewards of a well-earned rest. Of course, any fellow parents will agree that toddlers and planes aren’t always a great combination if you’re needing some shut eye. Honor has had some good flights and some not-so-good ones so Mackenzie pack ear plugs and eye masks and take it in turns to nap so we’re not like zombies when we arrive.

  • Hands up my fellow spectacle wearers! 🙋🏻‍♀️ How to do your makeup when you wear my tips on #FrontRoe! Link in bio. #liketkit
  • Shout out to my husband for looking super hot on our parent’s night out tonight. See what I mean ( 👖 🍑) on my stories... @wrangler #wranglerbuttsdrivemenuts #ad
  • Having a daughter of my own has made me realize more than ever how important it is to teach our children about female empowerment. One way I love educating Honor about girl power is through storytelling. I have discovered some truly empowering and uplifting books with examples of brilliant trailblazing women in history or fictional stories about independent and courageous girls who carve out their own paths in life. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on #FrontRoe that I have read to Honor or gifted to special young ladies in my life! Link in bio. #liketkit
  • Do you remember how short my hair was when I first started using @BondiBoost Hair Growth range a few months ago!? Wow has it grown and thickened up fast! I took it with me to England and had to hide it in Honor’s suitcase when we flew home so Mum wouldn’t steal it, LOL. If you’re looking to grow your hair I highly recommend trying this Aussie made, cruelty-free haircare brand. #BoostYourRoots #BondiBoost #Sponsored
  • The night before moving to LA over ten years ago, I watched Pretty Woman for the millionth time, to get me in the mood (not because I wanted to be a prozzie, but rather because I couldn’t wait to strut down Rodeo Drive 🛍) and ten years later, the street is still just as magical 💫 🌴
  • Onto the next adventure my ♥️!!
  • Today was exhausting, emotional and surreal... I’m too shattered to write a long caption - my eyes are closing - but see my stories for a house update, more from me tomorrow! ✌🏻 🏡 😢
  • #ad Long distance traveling really takes a toll on my skin and this summer has seen a lot of long-haul flying. @Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream and @Olay Regenerist Whip have really been the only staples in my bag and I combine the two to keep my face happy. See my stories for a link to get your hands on one #Olay #RedJar #FaceAnything
  • When Thursday afternoon really felt like Friday afternoon today 😍🍾What a beautiful party sipping on James Bond’s favorite bubbly! Thank you @champagne_bollinger #bollingerpartner
  • We have some big news! 
After a decade living in LA, we are going to be spending more time in London. We want Honor to be closer to family, to friends back home, and to the English countryside. We aren’t turning our backs on America (we’ll be splitting our time!) But over the coming months, Mackenzie and I will be house-hunting in England, traveling around Europe and sharing every moment with you guys. 
I’m feeling super emotional writing this. What a big change. I will be forever grateful to the experiences, friendships, jobs and sunshine Los Angeles has given me, but it’s time for a new family chapter. 
Now where should we visit on our new European adventure?? As always, thank you guys for your constant ♥️ and support!
