Whether you’re on vacation or traveling for business, you’re likely focused on reaching your destination, getting started on your pre-planned activities, and enjoying your stay. That said, skin care may not be at the forefront of your agenda. But it should be! Maintaining your skin-care routine and even tweaking it to suit your vacation is important for your skin’s health. Below is a simple guide on how to best care for your skin while traveling.
Use Similar Skin-Care Products
From tightly packed suitcases to TSA rules and regulations, it’s not always possible to bring your full skin-care collection with you. There are two solutions. Either you can bring only the essentials, or you can pack all your products in TSA-friendly containers. By using the same products your skin is already familiar with, you won’t have to worry about any adverse reactions.
Skip Hotel Soaps
While hotel soaps are nice in emergencies, they tend to be harsh and more damaging than useful when you use them as a cleanser. These products are not always of a high quality and can seriously dry out your skin, which poses a major problem if your skin is naturally dry or sensitive.
Traveling can really dry out your skin, especially when you’re embarking on long plane or train rides. Before you embark on your adventure, apply a thick cream to maintain adequate hydration throughout the flight. Then, continue moisturizing as usual once you arrive at your destination.
Sometimes, when you’re on vacation, you just want to let loose. If you have a few drinks, be sure to care for your skin as well as the rest of your body the day after. There are a variety of things you can do to care for your skin during a hangover. Once you’re rested up and rejuvenated, you’ll be able to get right back to enjoying your vacation and your travels home.
