How To Be The Girl Who *Doesn’t* Have A Skin Crisis While Travelling

Who doesn’t love a good vacay? From packing a beauty trunk to books and 50 pairs of extra undies that’ll never see the light of day, we’re guilty of over-packing for travels. However, our skincare routines get the shaft when we travel!

Travelling definitely messes with our skin (no, it’s not just you). Any change to your typical air quality, humidity, temperature, or sun exposure levels can take a toll on your skin, and then there’s the actual journey to think about. Scroll on as we share our top tips to support your skin throughout your vacay.

6 Tips To Build A Travel-Friendly Skincare Routine For Your Next Trip

Cleanse Twice A Day

When traveling from cold to hot temperatures, its certain that you’re going to perspire more. For folks with acneic skin, this can trigger a zit. This is why it’s essential to cleanse at least twice a day – to remove sweat, sunscreen, and pollution from the skin. And, this goes for your whole body including your neck, chest, and back.

Niacinamide Serum To Soothe And Calm The Skin

Whenever we travel hot to cold weather, our blood vessels constrict to help regulate the body temperature. For some skin types, this could lead to breakouts. That’s when calming ingredients such as niacinamide come in handy. Niacinamide is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory skincare ingredients that help in preventing flare-up by calming and soothing the skin.

Plump It Up With A pH-Balancing Toner

The pH of the skin can change as we travel between different climates, which is the reason why we recommend using a pH-balancing toner. A pH-balancing toner is a true beauty hero that helps restore the skin to its ideal state.

Up Your Lip Care Game!

The low humidity that your skin experience during flight journeys can be quite drying to your skin. If you’re going on a flight journey that’s longer than four hours, you skin is going to face the consequences. This is especially true when it comes to your lips, that are incredibly vulnerable. Given all that, a nourishing lip balm is an absolute must-have to prevent dry, chapped lips.

Keep A Face Mist Handy

Face mists packed with soothing ingredients can offer an antidote to lackluster complexions – and can easily be stored in the fridge for a post-workout blast of cool, or tossed into your bag for a midday pick-me-up. Whether you need something to brighten a dull, dehydrated complexion or you simply can’t handle the heat on the beach any longer – the face mists have got your back!

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Even before you reach your destination, there’s a journey you deal with, and all the germs, dry, cold air that comes with it. It’s a fast-track ticket to dehydration. Skincare layering is the trick to save your skin from being dehydrated. You can go for occlusives, humectants, and emollients. Look out for serums with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Apply your serum and seal it with a rich face cream to avoid trans-epidermal loss. You can reapply your face cream throughout to keep the skin feeling fresh and moistened. 

Way to glow!
