15 Eco-Friendly Travel Essentials in 2021

Some of my travel essentials.

1. Sunscreen + How To Pick the Best Sunscreen

We all know know how significant sunscreen is for all skin types. Some people believe melanated people don’t need sunscreen because melanin naturally protects their skin, well, I got news for you, you can still be affected by the sun and probably end up with hyperpigmentation if you don’t protect your skin.


According to science, sunlight that can reach us is made up of two types of harmful rays called long wave ultraviolet A (UVA) and short wave ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA can rays deeply penetrate the dermis which is the skin’s thickest layer. By not protecting your skin you are openly inviting pre-mature aging, unprotected sex is like unprotected skin (they both result in horrific consequences if unplanned) now, in this case, unprotected skin exposure which can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkles and we all hate aging and having premature ugly wrinkles, imagine having wrinkles in your 30s. If you are in your 20s and you are reading this right now, please make sunscreen your best friend, my darling, this is something I wish someone had told me in my early 20s. Now let’s talk about UVB rays which usually burn the superficial skin layers. It plays a pivotal role in causing skin cancer. It’s highly recommended to apply your sunscreen between 10 am to 2 pm as those are peak hours depending on your location of course. The intensity of UVB rays differs by seasons, time, and location. Let’s take care of our skin and avoid permanent damage over time.

How to pick the Best Sunscreen

Broad-spectrum protection (UVA + UVB)

Enjoying long summer holidays in full swing under the sun should amount to the time you are using your Broad-spectrum sunscreen every day of the year, it’s critical during the summertime. As you purchase your sunscreen make sure it has a sun protection factor (SPF) 30 or higher. The higher SPF numbers the more protection, but the higher you go, the smaller the difference becomes. For example; “SPF 15 sunscreen filters out about 93% of UVB rays”, meanwhile “SPF 30 sunscreen filters out about 97%” – yeah, I know, it sounds weird right? Lastly, “SPF 50 sunscreen filter out about 98%”

I would recommend this sunscreen it was developed by ALTRUIST. Dr Andrew Birnie | The Sunscreen has SPF 50 – Superior 5-star UVA protection suitable for even sensitive skin too. It has UVA protection only. Last recommendation would Riemann P20 Sunscreen Spray
Riemann P20 Sunscreen is little pricey but totally worth it and is Non-greasy, long lasting UVA & UVB Protection for up to 10 hours | Highly Water Resistant

2. Sunglasses

What’s a vacation without some fly sunnies? I feel incomplete going on a vacation without my sunglasses. Sunglasses are not only there to make us feel beautiful and confident but they protect our eyes from sun damage.

3. Eye mask

4. Emergency Breakout Fix

As we all Summer and taking vacations, that also mean taking long hours in planes, trains, or automobiles. Unfortunately, spending a long time in the pressurized environment of an airplane cabin will dehydrate you and suck all the moisture out of your skin. Changing environment that may be a little different climate can have a negative impact on your skin. Traveling on its own may cause anxiety which then increases stress hormones and ultimately affect your skin. High stress levels can cause inflammation and acne breakouts. Which is why I recommend Niacinamide Serum with Zinc which help with the following

  • It works as an antioxidant
  • It helps heal and rejuvenate skin
  • It may ward off acne flares ups
  • It heals rashes or scarring
  • It may protect the skin from UV damage

Wearing slippers aid to protect your feet from communicable foot diseases, such as athlete’s foot and toenail fungus infections. Even if you’re a clean freak, slippers help keep your feet much more protected against contracting bacterial or fungal infections from germs. This could be coupled with compression stockings because they promote blood circulation, help prevent swelling of the legs, and help guard against deep vein thrombosis work by putting pressure on leg muscles and increasing blood flow.
