Take Care of Your Skin While Traveling

July 10th, 2019

Your skin is accustomed to the regimen you offer it at home since you know exactly which skin care is suitable for the area you’re living in. Different climates require different skin care routines, so if you’re planning a trip to the mountains or maybe to the seaside, you’ll need to adjust the skincare to the new climate as well as to the new lifestyle you’ll have for a week or so. From exploring to sightseeing, swimming, or maybe skiing, you’ll live a different lifestyle for a few days and your skin will need to catch up too.

Prepare your skin for the trip

Your skin will need to be prepared for the new climate, so you’ll need to make sure it’s well-scrubbed and moisturized. Exfoliate your face and body the night before your trip so that all the dead skin cells are removed and to make sure new skin can grow and glow. With nourishing sheet masks, you’ll add plenty of hydration to your skin, so do a full body treatment the day before your trip. Soothe the skin with masks, facial serums and by drinking lots of water. No body lotion in the world will be enough to make your skin supple unless you hydrate it from the inside too.

Bring all your essentials

Taking care of your skin is always easiest at home, with all the serums, creams and masks within arm’s reach, but when you’re traveling, you can’t bring your entire skincare supply, which is why it’s essential that you pack travel-friendly versions of your cosmetic essentials. Grab your handy Mor cosmetic clutch and stock it up with all the products your skin can’t survive without. Make sure you have the bottles and containers that are small enough to fit your carry-on and don’t break FTA regulations. You’ll need to apply sunblock at least once while on the plane because you’ll be much closer to the sun and your face might need some more hydrating facial serum to replenish during the flight so have all of the essentials in your cosmetic clutch and within arm’s reach.

Don’t forget to slather on sunblock

Whether you’re traveling to the seaside or you’re planning a winter getaway to the mountains, your skin will be exposed to the harmful UV rays and it’ll require extra protection. Therefore, don’t forget to bring sunblock and start applying it religiously every day. If you’re going to soak up the sun, apply sunscreen before you head to the beach and keep reapplying every time you’re done swimming. For winter adventures, keep slathering on sunblock on all the body parts that will be exposed to the sun directly, such as your face. Don’t let the UV rays damage your skin and cause damaging burns, but stay proactive and always think ahead.

Moisturise constantly

Traveling always includes plenty of walking, exploring and doing new stuff you’ve never tried before, which will leave little time for you to do your makeup as often as you do at home. Even though foundations and powders clog pores and can cause breakouts, they still offer a protective layer to the skin from all impurities in the air. Moreover, if your foundation also offers moisture to your face, you’ll need to start using more of your face cream to compensate for the lost hydration. Make sure you give your skin a dose of moisture every morning and every night, to keep it supple and radiant. Hydrating face serums, sheet masks and moisturizing creams and body lotions will make sure your skin doesn’t suffer during the trip.

Cleansers are a must-bring

A proper cleansing routine is essential if you want your skin to look flawless all year long. That means you’ll need to bring an entire arsenal of cleaning products in order to keep the skin clean and fresh. A cleansing foam, micellar water or some other type of cleanser is the first thing your face needs after a long day. You should follow with a face scrub if you haven’t exfoliated in a few days, and continue with a facial toner. All of these products will offer a new level of freshness to your face, keeping it clean and pimple-free.

Traveling can take a lot of toll on your skin, so it’s essential that you take good care of it while on the road. Regardless of the type of your trip, you must remember to always keep the skin clean, moisturized, fresh and protected with SPF factors, to make sure it looks good for years to come.
