After all the rock climbing, island hopping, beach bumming, strolling, and everything fun under the sun, nothing could spoil the natural high better than a friend telling you that your skin looks horrible and dry. Traveling entails exposing your skin to different environments, so it is only necessary that you know how to keep it looking fresh and healthy. Here are some tips on how to take care of your skin while traveling. 

  1. Know what to pack.

    We all know that changes in temperature affect our skin. So before your trip, research about the climate of the place you’re visiting. Not only will it prevent you from bringing the wrong skin care products, but it will also help you downsize your traveling kit. 

  2. Moisturize your skin regularly.

    Spending hours in an airplane can dry up your skin, causing it to look dull. Moisturize your skin by applying heavy cream the night before your flight. Remember that the longer your flight, the more you need to moisturize. We recommend including the following essentials to your hand-carry: hand cream, face mist, and lip balm or petroleum jelly.

  3. Put on sunscreen.

    Whenever you go out in the sun, always apply sunscreen. The sun’s UV rays can cause serious skin damage and you can avoid this by using sunscreen with high SPF. Don’t be too confident though, as doctors recommend that you seek shade from time to time even if your skin is protected.
