It’s summer now and vacations are around the corner. Since our skin is directly exposed to the sun, sunburns and breakouts are some common summer skin problems. Therefore you need to adapt your skin regimen according to the environment.
A million ideas go through your mind before you leave, from packing your clothing to gathering your stuff. You're probably not thinking about your skin. However, giving your skin the attention it needs is essential for it so that it loves you back.
That's why we've compiled a list of useful recommendations to assist you to care for your skin when traveling. Here it goes.
Focus on the essentials
Stick to the basics if you are preparing a skincare regime. If you're going somewhere where little packing is required, consider the essentials like a sunscreen that has at least SPF 30, makeup wipes, face cleanser, and overnight moisturizer,
If there are any medications that you frequently apply to your skin, make sure to carry them so that you do not risk getting a flare while traveling.
Don't rely on the soaps provided by hotels
We need to be aware while using hotel soaps as cleansers. The ingredients used in the toiletries provided in some of the hotels are sometimes unknown and might cause skin issues, in a few cases. If you're prone to sensitivity or allergic responses, do carry your own soap along.
Keep your skin hydrated
No matter where you are, the lipid barrier prevents water loss from your skin and shields it from external aggressors. This indicates you need to have a moisturizer that not only enhances but also maintains your lipid barrier. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and vitamin C have been shown to improve barrier health and should always be present in the moisturizers you use.
Take extra care of your eyes and lips.
If you're experiencing a dry airline flight or a time zone shift, your eyes and lips may be the parts of your face that feel the most of the effects.
Sleep deprivation when traveling is also a huge issue since it can result in swollen eyes. To get rid of puffy eyes, use LuxaDerme Under Eye Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask.
Don't forget about the lips. While traveling, they might also get chapped and itchy. Always carry a lip balm to nourish your lips.
Carry a cleanser
Our skin gathers a lot of dirt and dust while traveling, which accumulates on the skin and triggers breakouts. A cleanser will remove any filth from the skin and keep it clean. Keep your cleanser on hand since even little changes in skincare products can cause the skin to react quickly, resulting in holiday breakouts.
LuxaDerme Detox Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask should be your go-to product as it contains many potent botanicals and antioxidants to hydrate and soothe your skin, especially during summers.
Use a toner
Using a toner after washing your face will remove the remaining dirt and impurities and deeply cleanse the pores. A toner, especially during the summers, shall instantly hydrate and calm your skin. EXEL Herbal Purifying toning lotion contains aloe vera extract, vegetable DNA, and a blend of potent ingredients that will soothe and moisturize your skin giving it a refreshing feel.
During summers, take proper care of your skin by avoiding overexposure and humidity. The only way to restore the skin’s natural balance and health is to take good care of it.
