Taking good care of your skin is an everyday feat; every morning and night you have to rejuvenate your skin with products that suit your skin type and don’t burn a hole in your wallet. When you’re traveling, however, it is a challenge to keep up this regime to look after your skin; you’re on a vacation having fun with your friends or family and the last thing you are thinking about is whether or not you moisturized your skin today.
Your skin shouldn’t suffer when you’re traveling, though. If you want to keep your skin in top shape, you simply need to adapt your skincare routine to fit around your vacation. Everyone’s skin is different and needs different care, but here are few tips that you can do to adapt your routine while traveling.
1. Keep It Simple
You’re traveling and having fun. You just don’t have the time to spend an hour every morning and night in the bathroom applying different products to your skin. If you reduce your skincare routine to three or two steps or even just one step, you can still fit it in around your daily activities and have a great time on your vacation without having to worry about the state of your skin.
For a short amount of time, a daily face scrub and moisturizer will be enough to keep your skin healthy.
2. Buy Travel-size Products
Regular sized skincare products can be heavy, and they will take up a lot of room in your suitcase, especially if you have a lot of them! Before you leave, invest in some travel-size skin-care products, perhaps from a discount cosmetics outlet to save your wallet, and use these products when you travel.
Having dedicated products for your travel skincare will make packing for future trips much easier as well!
3. Don’t Worry
Unless you are traveling for six months at a time, a short break from your regular skincare routine won’t have a lasting impact on your skin. It is completely fine if you forget to moisturize one day because you had a long day out on a boat trip, or you were too tired after your flight.
4. Remember Sunscreen
If you are traveling to a place with a lot of sunshine, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen. Even places topped with snow can be damaging to your skin when the sunlight reflects off the snow.
Adding sunscreen to your daily skincare routine is essential for any traveler, regardless of where you go!
Skincare has become a daily ritual for many, and it can be worrisome if you have to break from this routine when you’re traveling but there are ways you can adapt it to fit a traveling lifestyle.
Your diet and lifestyle also affect your skin, so alongside your moisturizer, eye cream, and other products, it’s important that you remember to eat healthily and keep active! Your diet and activity reflect on your skin as well as the products you use.
