5 Tips for Maintaining Healthy Skin While Traveling
Between the dry cabin air, disrupted sleep habits, and travel-induced stress, going on vacation is often a recipe for breakouts or a dull-looking complexion. Follow these tips to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing while you’re on the go.
1. Wear Sunscreen
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, but wearing SPF is the most important thing you can do for your skin. And yes, you should even wear it while on the plane! UV radiation levels are higher above the clouds, so shield your skin with proper sun protection like my Triple Defense Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 40.
2. Get Travel-Sized Versions of Your Faves
The best way to maintain your glow is to invest in travel-size versions of the products you already know and love. But if you’re not sold on your current skincare routine, a new beauty set allows an opportunity to discover new favorites. The Exploration Collection includes my must-have skin goodies in TSA-approved sizes, while the Discovery Collection features my best-selling products. Both come in chic carrying cases which make packing a cinch.
3. Drink Plenty of Water
Staying hydrated inside will help to keep your skin hydrated as well. Start early and up your water intake a few days before your flight, then make sure to drink plenty of water while on your travels. Carry a reusable water bottle so you can fill it up at airport water fountains.
4. Lock In Moisture
Another way to keep your skin supple and hydrated is to apply a thick moisturizer before departing for your travels. A rich moisturizer like Intense Hydrating Mask creates a barrier on your skin to keep moisture in and germs out.
5. Keep Your Hands Clean
You probably don’t need me to tell you, but airplanes and other forms of transportation are a magnet for germs. To prevent breakouts and illness, keep your hands clean by washing them frequently and using antibacterial gel. And avoid touching your face!
My Favorite Travel Hair Products
Now that we’ve covered healthy skin while traveling, what about hair? For many of us, the ultra-dry conditions of the airplane cabin plus high humidity at our vacation destination lead to frizz and flyaways (not the look you want in your vacation photos).
To keep your ‘do smooth and shiny, try a set of travel hair products like the Quench & Shine Trial & Travel Essentials. This five-piece beauty travel set features my popular Quench & Shine collection, including a restorative shampoo and hair mask, shine serum, and protecting style cream (a must for long days spent in the sun). Plus, I added a microfiber wet hair scrunchie to tame hair without breakage.
