makeup travel kit tips for post-vacation exhaustion

did you know your subtl beauty makeup travel kit can help you combat post-vacation exhaustion? also known as post-travel fatigue or post-vacation burnout, it’s a common phenomenon experienced by people after returning from traveling. you may be dealing with post-vacation exhaustion if you’ve noticed lethargy, low energy levels, and tiredness after vacay. 

makeup travel kit tips: post-vacation exhaustion refers to the feeling of fatigue, lethargy, and low energy levels experienced after returning from a trip or vacation

transitioning back to everyday life is tough after time away. thankfully, subtl’s makeup travel kit features good ingredients and powerful formulas to keep you feeling and looking good 24/7, no matter when or where you travel. here are a few beauty tips for giving post-vacation exhaustion the boot: 

for post-vacation exhaustion, use your makeup travel kit's concealer

to ward off post-vacation exhaustion, consider concealer your best friend, especially if you need to return to the daily grind quickly. this is because post-vacation exhaustion can lead to puffy under eyes from factors like disrupted sleep and dehydration, as they’re known for causing fluid retention and poor circulation. jet lag and long flights can also worsen their appearance.

because we’re familiar with travel woes, we formulated our makeup travel kit’s concealer with coffee seed oil to reduce puffiness and rejuvenate your under-eye area. our concealer's lightweight formula gives great coverage without caking. plus, we offer free shade exchanges if the hue you got paired with through our beauty quiz isn’t a perfect match. cool, right?

“i love the concealer! before subtl staks, i didn’t wear makeup because i was kind of nervous it would look cakey. the subtl stak concealer gives me that awake look without any caking in the lines.” -brittany f.

did you know that factors associated with post-vacation exhaustion, like stress and disrupted sleep patterns, can contribute to changes in your skin, including increased oiliness? when you’re tired or stressed – such as when you return home from a long trip – your body produces more cortisol, which can stimulate your oil glands and lead to increased oil production.

to manage oily skin with post-vacation exhaustion, prioritize self-care, including getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and maintaining a consistent skincare routine. you can also try our makeup travel kit’s long-lasting shine control pressed powder. it’s formulated with squalane to keep oil at bay and set makeup in place, while also being light-weight and non-cakey.

“a makeup routine that doesn’t leave my face itchy and my eyes watery. i love every product but the shine control pressed powder lends a very airbrushed look. i’m going on an overseas trip soon and my stak will serve me very well the entire time, i can tell.” - lauren j.

for post-vacation exhaustion, use your makeup travel kit's highlighter

if you’ve ever returned from vacation and noticed your skin looks lackluster, you likely weren’t imagining it. post-vacation exhaustion contributes to dull skin due to stress, disrupted sleep patterns, dehydration, and changes in diet. for example, people often indulge in foods they don’t typically eat while traveling to new places, affecting the skin’s health and radiance.

using our makeup travel kit’s highlighter may be beneficial if you have post-vacation exhaustion, as it can create the illusion of a glowing complexion. applying highlighter to strategic areas of your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones, and the inner corners of your eyes, can help brighten your skin and give you a more refreshed appearance – all day long.

for post-vacation exhaustion, use your makeup travel kit's lip & cheek

one of the worst things about post-vacation exhaustion is the fatigue. by using a multi-use product, like our makeup travel kit’s lip & cheek, you’ll eliminate the need for rummaging through your cluttered makeup bag, saving you time and energy. additionally, adding a pop of color can instantly brighten your complexion for a healthy, youthful glow, even when you're feeling tired.

it’s also worth noting that our makeup travel kit’s lip & cheek is hydrating and nourishing, thanks to jojoba oil and shea butter. these ingredients contain fatty acids that strengthen your skin's barrier function, which is essential after traveling, as it may become compromised due to dry airplane cabin air and climate changes. we always stand by the fact that ingredients matter.

for post-vacation exhaustion, use your makeup travel kit's bronzer powder

as we mentioned above, post-vacation exhaustion can leave your skin and features dull, lackluster, and less defined. to add warmth and radiance back to your complexion, consider using our makeup travel kit’s bronzer powder to revitalize and counteract dullness. you can also use bronzer to contour or sculpt your face, providing dimension while mimicking a healthy glow.

“bronzer is hard to make work with my fair skin, but this one works so well and blends beautifully! there are no weird orange hue spots that are too dark. it looks natural, and i am so excited i finally gave in and gave the brand a shot!” - stephanie m.

other tips (not using your makeup travel kit) for post-vacation exhaustion

how to combat post-vacation exhaustion without your subtl beauty makeup travel kit: eat a health diet, rest, drink lots of water, hang out with friends and family, prioritize your tasks, and more

post-vacation exhaustion is a lot more than just puffy eye bags, dark circles, and dull skin. it can also manifest in other non-physical ways such as mental fog, emotional instability, lack of motivation, difficulty sleeping, increased stress, cravings for escape, and more. check out these non-beauty-related tips that won’t include the help of your handy subtl makeup travel kit:

  • eat a fresh, healthy diet of nutritious foods that provide energy and support your overall well-being – like fruit, veggies, complex carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats. 
  • drink lots of water to compensate for the dehydrating effects of traveling. you can find out how many glasses of high-quality h2o you’ll need daily from mayo clinic here
  • skip caffeine and alcohol as they can further dehydrate your body and skin. 
  • make time for light exercise to keep your body moving. walking or yoga are great options. the cdc recommends getting around 150 minutes of exercise weekly. 
  • don’t forget to go outside and soak up the sun’s nutritiously natural vitamin d. it’s essential for energy production, mood regulation, immune function, and bone health. 
  • enjoy time with your loved ones and friends. being around people who care about you offers emotional support, stress relief, a boost in mood, and sometimes – a perspective shift.
  • prioritize your tasks because, with post-vacation exhaustion, your productivity levels may be down. this can focus your energy and attention, helping you stay organized.
  • plan your next adventure. want to go to orlando, fl, or bora bora? either way, getting a new trip in order will give you positive anticipation and an escape from your routine.
