Whether you’re going on vacation for fun or taking a work trip, travel is an essential and unavoidable part of life for many people. While traveling can provide a relief from your normal everyday routine, it’s also true that it can take a serious toll on the quality of a person’s skin. Additional stress, unfamiliar conditions, and other factors can all upset the skin if you’re not properly prepared. That’s why it’s important to be proactive about protecting your skin before, during, and after any upcoming trips you may have planned. Hopefully these tips from our skincare experts can help.
Increased elevation, especially during air travel, can dramatically dry out your skin. The same can be said for unfamiliar climates that are especially dry or windy. That’s why it’s crucial to drink lots of water and use skincare products like Revision Skincare® Hydrating Serum that provide much-needed moisture to the skin.
Resist Touching Your Face
Travel often requires interacting with many unfamiliar environments like airplanes and hotels that may be teeming with potentially damaging germs. One simple way to help minimize breakouts or other blemishes is to avoid touching your skin while traveling. Additionally, we recommend washing your hands with antibacterial soap before applying makeup while in transit.
Don’t Skimp on Sleep
We understand that traveling can be hectic, and it can sometimes be a challenge to get enough sleep while on the road. However, getting enough nightly sleep is absolutely critical to maintaining the quality of your complexion. We recommend at least 7 – 9 hours every night. Your skin will thank you later.
These tips can provide a good foundation for anyone trying to develop the right travel skincare regimen for their skin. While we understand that every person’s skin is different, we feel this advice is universal and can greatly benefit everyone regardless of their skin type or tone.
