Glowing skin is a common travel concern. From the heat to the unfamiliar surroundings, it shouldn’t be surprising that your skin may change when travelling. Here are some tips for how to not only prepare for a blooming look but also deal with it if you experience any while on vacation!
Preparations: The first thing to do is find out what your skin type is. If you’re a sensitive skin person, the best way to prepare for glowing complexion during travel may be different than someone who’s oily (or the other way around). It also helps if you have any allergies or sensitivities that might affect how you’ll react to new environments.
Stay hydrated: One of the most important ways to maintain good looking skin on vacation is staying hydrated. Keep water in your bag and sip throughout the day! Traveling through hot climates will require more drinking- but don’t forget about hydrating when it’s cool too! You can add some lemon juice with sparkling mineral water for an easy way to keep your skin radiant.
Protect yourself: One of the most common ways that people experience a shift in their skin’s appearance is from sun exposure. You can take some time before you go to pack an SPF-driven moisturizer or sunscreen for travel! If you’re not used to wearing these products, start using them now so they won’t be new and unfamiliar while on vacation with you. Keep it handy too – especially if you’ll be spending any amount of time outside during daylight hours when travelling abroad.
Don’t rely on hotel shampoos or soaps. Pack your own shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen–even on cloudy days or when you’re indoors! Remember that not all shampoos and shower gels are created equal. The water in different areas may have different levels of mineral content, which means your hair and skin will react differently.
Travelling can cause stress and other factors that might contribute to glowing skin such as lack of sleep, change in food intake or lower levels of hydration. There are many things you can do when travelling for long periods- from staying on top of skincare regime by packing light to bringing some of your favourite products with you, and using topical treatments that will keep skin looking healthy. Keeping things in control, following your itinerary and having stress-free travel will have you looking your best.
Pack lighter and bring only true essentials. You can skip bringing your toners for the time being as you will be adjusting to a new climate. Bring products that provide sun protection of SPF 30 or higher and are water resistant. There is also the option of packing makeup wipes if you need them on your trip as they can go into any bag!
Now that you have the tools to create a blooming look, it’s time for some final tips. One of the most important things to remember is not to rely on hotel shampoo or soap in order to protect your hair and skin from drying out too much. Keep your hands off those stressful situations as well because stress can cause breakouts which are never good! And finally, bring only true essentials with you so you don’t end up carrying around extra weight during all of this traveling work. We hope these tips help make getting ready easier and achieve that picture-perfect glowing look!
