Whether you are heading for a backpacking trip around Southeast Asia, an adventure around Europe, or a lavish holiday at Maldives, you might be able to relate when we say that travelling takes a huge toll on our skin. Looking good and giving your skin the tender loving care it deserves can be challenging – especially when there are space constraints in your luggage and you are on the move most of the time.
Thankfully, it is actually possible to get soft skin and maintain your aesthetic appearance when you are travelling. In this article, we have 7 clever tips to help avid travellers obtain healthy and supple skin even when they are on the move!
First, it is critical to keep hydrating your body when you are travelling. Regular hydration is the foundation of a healthy immune system and glowing skin. However, the lack of humidity in the cabin air could cause your body and skin to feel dehydrated during your flight. Furthermore, harsh climatic conditions could also take a huge toll on your skin since your body may not be accustomed to the weather patterns. Thus, ensure that you hydrate yourself regularly during the flight and your trip.
2. Nourish Your Skin
Second, nourish your skin with the right products. Try to get products that have the ability to enhance hydration and calm the skin without being too rich. This way, you can moisturize your skin but avoid clogging your pores during your trip.
Try ReFa EXPRESSION BOOSTER SERUM. This serum is great for travellers as its light formula feels almost weightless, but it still does the job by boosting hydration inside the skin. In addition, it creates a strong foundation by priming skin for enhanced moisture absorption and retention from following skincare products allowing skin to feel silky and supple.
3. Don’t forget Sunscreen
Third, don’t forget to apply sunblock – especially if you are travelling to tropical countries. Sunblock is crucial in any skincare routine as it blocks the harmful U.V rays that could damage your skin cells. Without proper protection from the sun, your skin could get flaky, dry and inflamed. Furthermore, overexposure to the sun could speed up your skin’s ageing process.
Make sure the SPF value is at least 50 to ensure you get full coverage.
4. Remove Makeup Thoroughly
Fourth, make sure you remove your makeup thoroughly to avoid clogging your pores. Without removing your makeup, you could get pesky pimples and blackheads that will take a long time to heal.
5. Maintain Your Skincare Regime
Fifth, try, as much as possible, to keep up with your regular skincare regime. Globetrotting is no excuse to wuss out on your skincare regime. Get travel-size skincare and beauty products and apply your products daily to make sure your skin gets the nutrients it needs even when you are on the move.
6. Eat a Healthy Diet
Sixth, even when you are on the move, make sure that you consume the necessary nutrients. Try to eat enough green vegetables, complex carbohydrates and lean protein to get clear and smooth skin.
Go ahead and treat yourself to the host country’s exotic foods – but be sure to consume enough healthy foods to make sure you get the nutrients your body needs.
7. Blot Regularly
Finally, make sure that you blot your face regularly to get rid of excess sebum which could lead to pimples and clogged pores. This way, you could reduce your risk of breakouts and also get glowing skin without looking too greasy!
