More calming down when traveling: Aveeno Stress Relief skincare [classic article]

It feels like the stress meter when traveling these days is dialed up to 11. Whether you’re hoping your plane doesn’t disappear into thin air, or worried that whatever is the most important thing to your journey doesn’t get left in the x-ray machine or drop your passport while drooling over candy at the duty-free shop, I feel your pain. Some stressful things can happen on the road or at home: like me, you may have cause to think your computer is possessed. Aveeno can come to your rescue with their stress relief products! I was very happy to be hosted to experience them.

Ultra-Calming Makeup Remover Wipes were an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner in 2013. Allure is my makeup Bible. First of all, this doesn’t count towards your 3-1-1 travel carry-on bag, so that takes away some stress. It takes off everything you’re wearing on your face — cosmetics or grime — with ACTIVE NATURALS® CALMING FEVERFEW® , an ingredient related to chamomile. It has a light floral scent.

When traveling, you sure don’t want to exposure your face to what can be much stronger sun than at home. It’s aging! POSITIVELY AGELESS® Correcting Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 comes in a pump. Light to Medium is a peachy tint that’s:

Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Natural Shiitake Complex and vitamin C, this daily moisturizer hydrates and nourishes your skin to help visibly reduce the look of fine lines and skin discolorations. Natural, light-reflecting minerals provide lightweight, sheer coverage, while broad spectrum SPF 30 sun protection helps prevent premature skin aging.

It’s creamy and fairly sheer, easy to apply.

Stress Relief Body Wash is clinically shown to help calm and relax. It’s worth getting some little plastic containers from the dollar store to make it 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag sized. It combines ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal — long known for its skin-soothing benefits—with scents of lavender, essential chamomile and ylang-ylang oils, known for their calming benefits. It’s soap free and dye free as well. It is a silky creme-gel formulation that leaves skin silky, even before applying lotion. I noticed a relaxing, herbal tea type scent. It’s good for showers, baths and shaving. Word to the wise: my mom — who travels all over the planet — says always check your hotel bathtub to make sure it’s clean. You don’t want problems that would be even more stress inducing!

Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion has lavender, essential chamomile and ylang-ylang oils with the soothing properties of ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal. To my nose, it has a slightly spicy scent. The rich lotion, which comes in a pump bottle, works for 24 hours. That’s great, because when you’re under stress, you don’t want to have to do anything all the time! Your skin will be moist, but not greasy. Get a little container from the dollar store to bring it in 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags.

POSITIVELY AGELESS® Reconditioning Night Cream fits into a 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag. It’s a simple, light lotion texture, easy to apply. Sure, I like “spa nights” at home, but under stress and when traveling, too many steps makes me feel like Tweek Tweak on South Park. It will leave you smooth, hydrated and protected at night.
