The ultimate travel skin care routine secret is consistency. Keep your skin working while on vacation by packing the essentials you already use daily.
Here are our essential skin care travel tips:
Avoid hot water. For facial washing, the best water temperature is warm to help loosen the dirt but preserve your skin’s natural hydrating oil. Cold water doesn’t effectively remove the daily grime, hot water may irritate and dry out your skin. Choose warm!
Drink water and stay hydrated. Have you ever noticed how thirsty you suddenly feel on a plane? The air pulled in at high altitudes is much dryer than on the ground, so during the flight, you’re exhaling moisture-rich air and inhaling dry air. Staying hydrated will keep your skin cells plump and full of life.
Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen. We can NOT stress enough how important sunscreen is to prevent early aging. Even when the clouds are out, sun UV rays may still penetrate your skin causing hydration and promote aging.
Pack your main skin care products into your checked luggage and carry on a little pouch of in-flight essentials. This includes make-up wipes, lip balm, ProPlus Advanced Defense Complex, face mist, hydrating mask and a ProPlus Brightening Cleanser.
Always exfoliate and hydrate the night before you travel and maintain your regular skin care routine as much as possible. Pay special attention to your lips and eyes, pack a good book to stimulate your mind and safe travels!
