Everyone needs a break! Not only for our mental health, but also for our overall wellbeing, that includes the health of our skin. Travel has its moments. A change in our sleep schedule, climate, lodging, diet. No wonder our skin can have a meltdown during vacations!
After returning from a wonderful trip to England to see friends and family I wanted to share some pics and my favorite before and after travel skin tips.
Pack carefully. Remember that your skin is going to be under stress while traveling. That means any potentially irritating products need to stay home—including harsh cleansers, hydroxy acids, peels, resurfacing treatments, etc. Remember to pack travel sizes for the climate you'll arriving to and keep it gentle. Add an acne fighting spot treatment for breakout flareups.
Take along some blotting cloths. If you have oily skin, bring some blotting cloths with you that you can use while traveling. Oil-blotting papers can help reduce oil and are better than regular tissue that may leave residue on your skin.
Counteract travel dryness. Consider bringing the IMAGE Vital C Hydrating Water Burst on board. It’s a light weight gel formulated to burst into intense hydration. Invigorating 3 hours into a long flight. Hydrating mists are also a great product to help keep your skin hydrated in dry circumstances.
You'll want a refresher to renew, hydrate and exfoliate the airports away when you return.
Schedule a Hydra-Flow Facial with Dermaplane. Gentle vacuum pressure lifts while water and serums flush the pores and infuse the skin. This customizable treatment combines five fabulous steps: Cleansing, exfoliation, painless Vortex extraction, ageless hydration and The Oxygen Infusion Treatment of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Add a exfoliating dermaplane to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair.
Many stressed people forget that they can embody a way of life that limits stress altogether. If you take the time occasionally to slow down, take some breaks, relax, you will be not as stressed. Meditation, deep breathing, and quiet alone time and a cup of tea can be just the thing to eliminate stress, and the effects that stress has on the skin.
