Your Guide to Skin Care While Travelling
- Posted on: Jul 20 2022
Travelling breaks us away from our normal routines. Our minds shift as we anticipate our change in daily responsibilities. However, your skincare should not be one of them. Taking care of your skin on the go is just as, if not more, important as from the comfort of your home. Flying, temperature changes, and sun exposure are just a few things that can affect your skin, which is why it is important to remain dedicated to your skincare ritual.
Here are 5 ways to take care of your skin while travelling:
1. Pack Your Essentials
Deciding on what to bring is always the toughest part. In case you must stick to essentials, here is a short list of items you should never leave without:
- Broad-spectrum sunscreen
- Eye cream
- Facial mist & cleanser
Planning on travelling light? Search for your personal products in a travel-sized format so you can easily pack them in your carry-on.
2. Take SPF With You Wherever You Go
Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Wear it every day – even when it’s cloudy – to prevent painful sunburn and damage caused by UV rays such as dark spots, premature wrinkles, and cancer. Make sure you reapply your sunscreen every two hours and after every dip in the ocean or pool.
3. Use Vitamin C
Did you know that SPF and Vitamin C form a powerful sun protection duo? Not only does Vitamin C help with collagen production and brightening your skin tone, but it also works wonders to protect your skin from UV ray damage, enhancing the effect of sunscreen. Hello, holiday glow!
4. Stay Hydrated
No matter the environment, hydration is always key when dealing with skincare. When our body doesn’t have enough water, it becomes dehydrated, and the skin loses its elasticity. Be sure to drink more if you are in hot and humid temperatures. Pro tip: bring a reusable bottle with you so you can easily fill it up before each daily adventure.
5. Keep Your Routine the Same
It cannot be stated enough, stick to your skin care regimen as if you were home. Although being in a new environment may inspire you to try something new, your skin will be happier with the products it knows best.
When returning from travelling, our minds can be overwhelmed by all the memories (and the unread emails). But your skin too may need a little soothing or TLC! Here are two treatments that can help improve your overall skin health post-vacation:
BelaMD’s Calm & Hydrate Serum is ideal after you’ve spent a considerable amount of time in dry weather or dry indoor air. The treatment is minimally invasive and consists of 5-steps to help replenish the skin’s moisture barrier, boost hydration, reduce transepidermal water loss, and improve firmness and elasticity. Results are visible after one treatment, but one infusion every 4-6 weeks is recommended to maintain overall skin health and clear complexion.
This non-invasive one-of-a-kind technology combines compressed gases (air, medical oxygen, or CO2) with active ingredients to form a subsonic jetstream of microdroplets that deliver solutions into the skin without needles or harming the skin. This gentle treatment has been shown to help restore the youthfulness of the skin and prevent various skin conditions without any rest time. For optimal results, 4 to 6 sessions are recommended.
