It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the hustle and bustle of holidays, your skin could use some extra love. Let’s break down skincare tips while you’re traveling on the go during the holidays.
These tips can keep your skin glowing on your journey to see family and loved ones this holiday season:
Hydrate from the Inside and Out
Holiday travel can take a toll on the hydration of your skin, especially if you are heading out on a flight or traveling. Make sure to keep that water bottle close by, and ensure you intake plenty of fluids.
Pack Sunscreen & Moisturizer
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable when it comes to your year round routine. Whether you are traveling north into the snow, or south for a warm beach vacation, remember to apply at least an SPF 30 daily. Apply a hydrating moisturizer to combat the dry air on planes or in airports is a must. Don’t forget to moisturize and protect your lips, especially if skiing or hitting the beach.
Healthy Food Choices
Pack snacks rich in antioxidants and vitamins, like fruits and nuts, to nourish your skin from the inside out. Pack healthy snacks for a long road trip or flights to avoid limited options of highway fast food or airports. Try not to overindulge on alcohol, sugar and inflammatory foods at holiday parties that can trigger breakouts or rashes.
Simplify & Stick to Your Routine
Packing for travel can be hectic, so make it easier on yourself by simplifying your skincare routine. Save space in your bag by packing only your must-have products. At the base level, you should pack a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. No matter how tired you are after the holiday festivities or travel, always remove your makeup and cleanse your skin each day. Consistency is key to maintaining that gorgeous glow.
Travel-size products can be your best travel companion. Not only do they leave you more room for more festive outfits and gifts, and compliant with airline regulations. Pick up your most essential travel-size skincare products before your head out of town.
