How to Care for Your Skin When You’re Traveling

How to Care for Your Skin When You’re Traveling

If you’re a perpetual wanderer, you’ll need some travel skin care advice!

Even when flying to an exotic location, traveling is stressful. The equilibrium of your body, especially your skin, can be upset by all the stress that comes with traveling. Before you leave, you have a lot of things on your mind, like packing your clothes and gathering your belongings. You probably haven’t given much thought to your skin, but you don’t need to. You shouldn’t need to spend a lot of time or effort on your travel skincare routine.

It’s not necessary to have an elaborate and time-consuming travel skincare routine. It only requires a little planning, something that this article will demonstrate. Before we get started, let’s briefly talk about how traveling impacts your skin. 

How Does Travel Affect Your Skin?

When you’re on the road, your regular skincare routine suffers. You will also be exposed to a variety of weather and environmental conditions, and you will most likely consume a variety of foods (including junk food). When you travel, all of these factors have an impact on your skin. Let’s take a closer look at them.

Changing Climate

Keep in mind that dry skin is more prone to breakouts. Your skin will be affected by your mode of transportation, whether you’re flying or just going somewhere with dry air. Additionally, you frequently forget to drink enough water while traveling. This further dries out your skin.

Check the weather where you are going as well. If it’s cold outside, the dry air will cause your skin to dry out quickly. Your skin will produce sebum and become more prone to clogging in a warm, humid environment.

Change in Your Skincare Routine

It is impossible to adhere to your daily skincare regimen religiously while traveling. You won’t even have time to properly wash your face in between all of your long flights, trains, and drives.  When your skin isn’t clean, dead skin cells build up on the surface, causing breakouts and uneven skin tone.

Change in Skincare Products

Immediately after checking into a hotel, you discover these tiny skincare items that the hotel has provided. While it can be difficult to resist the urge, you must keep in mind that these products are not intended for your skin type or to address any particular skin issues. Using them will only result in breakouts and other skin problems.

Change in Your Daily Routine

When you’re on the road, your sleep-wake cycle becomes erratic. As a result, you may be unable to maintain your usual skincare routine.

The good news is that there are solutions to all of your travel skin care problems. While traveling, you do not need to buy new skin care products. All you have to do is change your routine and bring only the “must-have” items. Here’s how to do it.

10 Essential Skincare Tips for Travelers

Carry facial wipes or towelettes

Pre-moistened facial wipes or makeup-removing towelettes are your best bet if you don’t want to bring your own facial cleanser or use the one the hotel provides. Bring them along in a ziplock bag. They can be used anywhere, whether you’re flying, taking public transportation, driving, relaxing on the beach, or staying in a hotel.

Keep a facial mist spray on hand

Everyone needs to have this! Never forget to pack a facial mist whether you are going on a short weekend trip or a lengthy vacation. Your skin will stay hydrated and supple the entire time you’re traveling. You add moisture to your skin when you lightly spray it on your face. This is especially useful if you have combination or dry skin, or if you’re going somewhere cold.

Bring your go-to facial cleanser with you

Serums and eye creams are not as important as facial cleansers. A daily cleanser ensures that your skin is free of impurities, pollution, and dirt at the end of the day. No matter where you are, dirty skin is never acceptable!

Remember to use moisturizer

Healthy skin is maintained with the aid of a good face moisturizer. It keeps the moisture levels in your skin at a healthy level, avoiding breakouts and other skin issues brought on by extreme dryness. Before you get on the plane, don’t forget to moisturize your skin. The drying air in airplanes can harm your skin.

Don’t forget about SPF

If you ask anyone what product they can’t live without, they’ll tell you the secret: good sunscreen. Sunscreen can help you take care of your skin and improve its appearance. A good option is Sea Active Skincare’s Skin Guardian™ spf 25 Daily Moisturizer. This sunscreen moisturizer guards the skin from radiation, and other free radicals. 

Bring some sheet masks

Sheet masks are beneficial to your skin and don’t take up much extra room in your luggage. These treatment-soaked papers can be a great replacement for the creams and serums you will miss while on the road. 

Don’t touch your face frequently

Keeping your hands away from your face can reduce breakouts. When traveling, adhere to this guideline strictly. This is due to the possibility that you may acquire an unidentified bacteria that can lead to numerous skin problems. Wash your hands as often as possible with an antibacterial hand wash or sanitizer.

Avoid makeup

Makeup is strictly prohibited when boarding a flight or visiting tourist attractions. While many people prefer to use a tinted moisturizer while traveling, it is best to stick to your regular day cream and SPF to allow your skin to breathe. This is because your skin might become inflamed due to the atmosphere and weather changes.

Bring a quality eye cream

If you struggle with eye puffiness all the time, always keep a reliable under-eye cream on hand, like Eye’m™ Amazed Ultimate Eye Cream by Sea Active Skincare. Your eye area’s skin will feel as soft as a rose petal after using this eye cream. Another option is to apply crushed ice wrapped in a washcloth to your eyes. Your eyes will immediately feel refreshed by this.

Do not sacrifice your beauty sleep

Your skin may become more prone to problems if you don’t get enough sleep while traveling. Therefore, make an effort to sleep well even while traveling.
