Taking a Trip? Here’s How to Care for Your Skin

Taking a Trip? Here’s How to Care for Your Skin

Skin troubles while traveling? It can happen to anyone, but the last thing you want while on vacation is to be worried about your skin. Between the dry air on the airplane, the changes in temperature or humidity in a new climate, and the stress of leaving home, travel can be a trial for your skin. However, you can prevent skin troubles by tweaking your skin care while youre on holiday, and it can even be an opportunity to pamper your skin in new ways. Here are our top tips for keeping your glow when you go on a trip.  

Prep Before Takeoff 

Set your skin up for success by spending some time planning your vacation skin care routine before you leave. This might include checking the temp and humidity levels of your destination to make sure you have enough sunscreen or tonerand it can also save room in your luggage because youre not going to need a heavy moisturizer in a tropical climate. Additionally, if you think ahead, youll have time to put everything you need in travel-sized containers, so youre not hauling your whole vanity around. It also cuts down on the likelihood that youll forget something essential, like acne patches! 

Fly Your Way to Better Skin 

Airplanes are notorious for taxing the skin, especially since the atmosphere can be so dry, it actually pulls moisture away from the skin. If you start prepping and protecting your skin before you get on the plane, you can step into your vacation with a radiant complexion. Heres how:  

Hydrate Drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated during the flight, starting the day before you leave. Keep it up on the plane, and avoid dehydration by skipping alcohol and caffeine while youre flying.   

Skin TLC Before liftoff, hydrate your skin by applying a hydrating serum, especially those containing hyaluronic acid. Follow up your hydrating serum with a thick or richer moisturizer to seal in moisture for the duration of your flight. If you can, dont wear makeup on the plane, as it tends to be drying. And dont forget to wear sunscreen! UV rays are actually more intense at  30,000 feet elevation. 

Post-Flight Once you land, refresh your face with a swipe of toner and reapply your moisturizer and sunscreen. Dab on some makeup if you like, or simply breeze onto the beach with a hydrated glow.  

Destination Skin Care  

Holidays are for relaxing, but you also want to look good, which means keeping up your skin care routine. You may want to do a streamlined version of your at-home routine, or ramp up the love you give your skin for a bit of extra self-care oomph while on vacation. Either way, here are our tips for taking care of your skin once youve reached your destination: 

Sun Protection Nothing spoils a trip like getting a sunburn on the first day. If youre staying somewhere sunnier than home, youll be more prone to sunburns and sun damage. With that in mind, load up on sunscreen and layer on sunglasses and a hat when youre outside. 

Moisturizer Going somewhere hot and humid? Pack a lightweight moisturizer that wont clog pores and allows your skin to breathe. Headed somewhere cold? In that case, bring a thicker moisturizer to combat the drying effects of the climate. Its never a bad idea to bring two options in case of changing weather or skin conditions. 

Exfoliants Skip them, especially if youre visiting a tropical destination, where exposure to the sun and salty ocean swims can tax your skin. Since youre on vacation, give your skin a break from physical or chemical exfoliants or retinol, which you should stop using a week prior to spending a lot of time in the sun. 

Acne Products The stress of travel, changing weather conditions, increased humidity, pollution, sweating, and unfamiliar food can all lead to a vacation breakout. Come prepared with your acne product of choice, whether thats a mild AHA/BHA product or acne patches, to clear the way to great skin.   

Masks If you rarely have time for them at home, holidays are the perfect time to try a pampering face mask. Easy to pack, masks can treat vacation skin woes or give your skin some extra TLC for a fresh, glowing face all holiday long.
