When you decide to go on vacation, it’s all about ditching your regular routine. But doing that doesn’t mean you should forget to take care of your skin. Learn how you can pack the necessary skincare for travel and still enjoy your next trip!
Best Skincare Tips for When You’re on the Go!
Pack Travel-Size Products
Pack the skincare products you need the most. You don’t want your entire suitcase to be filled with products, just because. After all, you still need to save room for clothes and shoes! So, stock up on travel sizes of your favorite cleanser and moisturizer. You can even buy empty travel size bottles and pour your favorite skincare products into them.
Keep Your Skin Moisturized
In-flight skincare is essential. If you’re flying somewhere, keep in mind that the air in a plane can be really drying, so remember how important it is to hydrate your skin. You can keep your skin refreshed during your flight with a facial mist, and once you’ve landed apply a moisturizer to alleviate post-flight dryness. Also remember to drink plenty of water while you’re up in the air, too.
Don’t Forget About Sun Protection
If you’re headed to the beach, make sure you bring a SPF sunscreen with you. Apply your sunscreen each and every day and apply about 15 to 30 minutes before going outside, then reapply every two hour. Remember to take additional sun protection measures as well. Limit your amount of time in the sun during peak hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), sit under an umbrella for shade, and wear sunglasses and a hat for further protection.
Don’t Forget About Cleansing
Remember before you head out for a day full of activities, take some time to cleanse your skin and prep it for the day ahead. You should do the same when you get back to your hotel at night to get rid of all the dirt that has built up on the surface of your skin throughout the day. Use your travel size cleanser to give your skin a deep clean.
Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Hydrated While Traveling
While traveling in the air, changes in humidity and temperature can for sure cause changes to your skin. Humidity levels on airplanes can be low. Again, drinking water throughout the flight is a great way to retain moisture to your skin.
When going to a warm, humid destinations, you might break out after you arrive. Pay extra attention to exfoliation in order to reduce the dead skin cells trapped by this excess moisture. Remember to pack your Pink Grapefruit Watermelon Hydrating scrub to remove any dead skin that could clog your pores, and to keep your skin fresh and hydrated.
When going to the mountains, it's all about deep moisture when it comes to locations that have low temperatures and high altitudes. It has been noted that to function properly, the epidermis needs to maintain a certain moisture level; in the winter, low temperatures, low humidity, and strong wind deplete skin of its natural protective barrier, allowing that level to drop.
Apply your moisturizer the night before you’re going to fly. This will help increase hydration in your skin before your skin is exposed to dehydration from the effects of cabin pressure.
