There are so many questions; How much should I pack? What sunscreen is best? How do I glow in my pictures? We have all the answers. Keep reading to find out.
How To Keep Your Skin Hydrated & Glowing on The Road
Dewy skin is the goal during vacation. Travel can often expose your skin to drying elements that lead to water loss (Trans-epidermal water loss). This means you should be using products that will hydrate and protect your skin while you're on the road. You don’t want to take a dozen products due to limited space. You’ll need something that packs a punch- our 12-Peptide Quench serum will give you plump, dewy skin. Top it off with our Ultra Restore Dry Oil and you’re set with a radiance that combats free radicals in your new environment. You may also pack a facial mist to refresh your skin on the go.
Essential Skincare Products for When You're on the Road
The big question for skincare during travel is - How much should I pack? The answer is just enough to keep your skin healthy. You’ll need the basics; a gentle face wash like our Ultra Restore Anti-Oxidant Facial Cleanser, a hydrating serum, a rich moisturizer, sunscreen and a lightweight oil. You may also need to add one or two more products depending on any skin conditions you are managing.
You will need to confirm that your skincare products are travel compliant in their size. If they aren’t we advise that you only dispense the basics into smaller containers as a lot of products become unstable and less effective when exposed to air.
How To Prevent Redness and Breakouts While Travelling
Travelling can cause breakouts and redness due to the change in climate, stress, and lack of sleep. To prevent breakouts while travelling abroad, our Clear Fight serum needs to be on the plane with you. With 2% Salicylic acid, the serum is great for balancing the skin and eliminating acne-causing bacteria
To avoid breakouts during transit, you should wash your face every day with a gentle cleanser before bedtime to remove makeup, dirt and oil accumulated on your skin during the day. You should also drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated.
Best Sunscreen for Traveling Abroad
Sun protection abroad is a big concern for many people. No one wants to come back from paradise with a sunburn. It is important to use sunscreen with at least SPF 50 on vacation, especially in tropical countries. The sunscreen should go on your face and body and must be reapplied every few hours for maximum protection. We find that Sunscreen balms or sprays make for easy reapplication. Don’t forget your lip balm with SPF.
Another important tip is if you apply sunscreen on your scalp if it going to be exposed. People are often rudely awakened by sunburns on their scalp which can be very uncomfortable.
Our last tip is to have some fun. Your skin reacts to stress so make sure you let loose so you can glow from the inside.
