Visiting a new destination is always fun and exciting. However, if you’re not proactive, traveling can take a toll on your skin. Whether you’re flying, eating foods you probably wouldn’t typically eat, or being in an environment different than you’re used to, traveling can create skin issues such as dehydration, breakouts, and puffiness!
While you don’t need to bring an extensive skincare regimen to maintain beautiful skin while vacationing, you shouldn’t compromise your skincare regime by not taking specific measures to keep your skin healthy.
7 Healthy-Skin Tips that Go the Distance!
Face Wipes/ Towelettes: If you’re on a plane, towel wipes are great for removing leftover makeup, dirt, and sebum. Plus, if you’re on a long car ride or plane, washing your face the traditional way may not be an option. Towelettes are compact and can be used anywhere.
Essential Face Mist: Airplane cabins are dehydrating and completely lack moisture. I bring my face mist everywhere. It is hydrating and will keep your skin refreshed throughout your trip. Spraying your face adds more moisture to your skin, helping to combat hydration. You will also get a beautiful, dewy glow on your face.
Moisturizers and Serums: In addition to face mists, you’ll want to make sure you have a hardworking serum and moisturizer for keeping your skin hydrated. This will also help prevent skin issues or breakouts caused by excessive dryness.
The Ultimate Skin Care Set features Age-Defying Intensive Repair Serum™ and Ultimate Revitalizing Cream™. Together, this duo offers Synchronized Peptide Complex™ for smoother, softer, firmer, and brighter skin. And, who wouldn’t want that at home and while traveling?
SPF Rain or Shine! Use SPF regardless of the climate; the sun emits harmful rays through the windows, even when it’s not sunny.
Collagen Powder: Collagen powder is a perfect way to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Plus, it’s easy to pack! Use one to two scoops daily in water, coffee, or other drink to keep your skin glowing.
Happy Collagen™ not only helps you with smoother, softer, firmer, and brighter skin but it strengthens bones, lubricates joints, and improves mood. Not to mention it does wonders for your hair and your nails. Plus, there’s a potent metabolic booster to support weight loss
Sleep: Sleep is essential! Lack of sleep every night decreases our skin’s moisture levels, which makes our skin look dull, dry, and prematurely aged. And, because our sleeping patterns are affected when we travel, especially when we change time zones, getting a good night’s rest can be a challenge.
Unwined™ Chill Drink Sticks are perfect for stashing in your bag. Thirty minutes to an hour before you want to sleep, just mix one with water for a great-tasting drink that offers stress reduction, antioxidants, and sleep.
Water (LOTS!): The more we hydrate internally, the more it will show externally. As a reminder, always keep a water bottle with you. When we travel, we forget to drink enough. Drinking more water will help improve your overall complexion by lessening wrinkles and fine lines, puffiness, and skin tightening. Some people even claim that if you are traveling by airplane, one drink in the air equals two on land, so drink up!
