When you're travelling, you know what a toll living on the road can take on your skin as you will easily neglect your usual beauty routine. So read on for the best travel skincare tips to looking Insta-ready at all times!
Carry A Facial Mist Spray
This is a must-have for everyone! Whether you are on a weekend trip or a long vacay, never forget to carry a facial mist. It is hydrating and will keep your skin refreshed throughout your trip. When you spritz it on your face, you add moisture to your skin. This is especially helpful if you have dry and combination skin or if you are traveling to a colder climate.
Keeping your skin moisturized is probably the most important step when traveling. If you can choose only one product to use on the road, make it a moisturizer. A good face moisturizer helps maintain your skin’s health. It keeps your skin hydrated, which prevents breakouts and skin issues caused by excessive dryness. While keeping your face moist is a priority don’t neglect your body too!
Carry Facial Wipes
You can use them anywhere – in the airplane, while traveling in a bus or car, while sitting at the beach, or in your hotel room. On nights that you are so exhausted and seriously can’t be bothered with washing, wipe it all off with a face wipe at the very least but don’t make this a habit!
Don’t Ditch SPF
Skin-damaging UV rays are everywhere, even when you’re inside! Sunscreen goes a long way in taking care of your skin and the way it looks.
Pack Some Sheet Masks
Sheet masks don’t take any extra space in your luggage and are great for your skin. After a long day of plane hopping and city exploring, make sure to give your skin a treat by grabbing a face mask. These treatment-soaked papers can be an excellent alternative for the serums and special creams that you will miss while traveling.
This one’s easy, drink plenty of water! Just grab a quality reusable bottle and make sure to fill it a few times a day. These are super practical and can be carried wherever you go. Also, make sure to drink plenty of water while flying since the air at such high altitudes is very dry and you can get dehydrated quickly.
Avoid Touching Your Face Often
Keeping your hands off your face helps minimize breakouts. Strictly abide by this rule when traveling. This is because you might pick up unknown bacteria that can cause multiple skin issues. Wash your hands with an antibacterial hand wash or sanitizer as much as possible.
Don’t Compromise On Your Beauty Sleep
Not getting enough sleep while traveling can make your skin more prone to issues. So, try to get a good night’s sleep even when you are traveling.
