How to Pack Makeup and Skincare According to Season

No two climates treat skin the same and it’s important to take care of your skin in all types of weather conditions. Here are some tips on how to pack a selection of makeup and skincare products based on where you plan to travel.

Hot and Dry Climates

Example: United Arab Emirates

Think weather that is similar to an oven, where the heat can dehydrate and wither your skin dry. In order to care for your skin in this type of weather, it’s important to use ample sun protection at all times (don’t forget to reapply during mid-day when the sun is at its peak!) and a face mask at night to replenish lost moisture.

Calyxta recommends: LULULUN MOISTURE TYPE FACIAL MASK (300 to 1250PHP)

One of Japan’s best-selling facemasks filled with Royal Jelly and Hyaluronic Acid to help the skin’s ability to retain moisture.

Cold and Dry Climates

Example: Sweden

When winters are long, dark, and dry, your skin can take a beating, and end up flaking and getting chapped. It’s important to lather on heavy creams—especially on your hands, lips, and around your mouth to make sure you don’t start aggravating the skin more than necessary.


With incredibly soothing and intensely hydrating ingredients, this lotion works by providing a lipid barrier between the skin and the elements.

Hot and Humid Climates

Example: Philippines

Tropical weather like our beloved archipelago is the kind of environment that will have makeup sweating off your face in no time. Stay fresh by spritzing your face with mineral water in between touch-ups.

Calyxta recommends: PIXI VITAMIN WAKEUP MIST (900PHP)

A revitalizing wake up mist that can be used any time of the day to improve your complexion and refresh tired skin.

Cold and Humid Climates

Example: Japan

Chilly weather with a lot of moisture in the air is less damaging on the skin than dryer countries, but it still doesn’t hurt to wear a protective base which guards your skin from UV rays and skin-damaging elements.

Calyxta recommends: GLOSSIER PRIMING MOISTURIZER 50ML (1,757PHP)

A light moisturizer that protects your skin from the cold and creating the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup.
