Traveling can be a great way to explore new places, discover new cultures, and make lasting memories. However, it can also present some challenges when it comes to maintaining a good skincare routine. In this blog, we’ll explore some tips for keeping your skin healthy and glowing while on the go.
First and foremost, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your skin, and it’s even more important when you’re on the go according to this article from Vogue. Make sure to bring a reusable water bottle with you when you travel, and try to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated.
Next, always make sure to wear sunscreen, according to the dermatologists from Everyday Health. Whether you’re in the sun or the shade, you should always make sure to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Find a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and apply it liberally before heading out.
Finally, try to find a simple skincare routine that you can use while you’re traveling. We recommend our Easy Glide One Stick or our Eczema Stick which are all natural, lightweight and travel-friendly. Try to stick to the basics such as cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. It’s also a good idea to bring a few face masks with you for a quick pick-me-up.
Here are some tips for maintaining healthy skin while you're on the go:
- Always carry a facial moisturizer: Our Easy Glide One Stick is the perfect size to fit in your purse. Give your face a swipe whenever you need a quick refresh.
- Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated.
- Use sunscreen: Sunscreen is an essential part of any skin care routine. Make sure you always use sunscreen when you're out and about, even on cloudy days.
- Cleanse regularly: Make sure you cleanse your skin regularly, especially if you're wearing makeup. Use a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt and grime that may have built up throughout the day.
- Use a moisturizer in your daily routine: Moisturizer is key to keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. Make sure you apply a moisturizer to your face every morning and night to keep your skin looking fresh.
- Carry a nourishing lip balm: Lip balms are great for keeping your lips hydrated and nourished on the go. Choose a nourishing formula with natural ingredients. Or use a swipe of Satya!
