Achieving a Good Skincare Routine While Traveling

By: Vanessa Ngon – Director of Training and Master Aesthetician at Derma Health Skin & Laser

 

Traveling is a joyful experience, but it can also pose challenges for your skin. Long flights, changing climates, and varying levels of humidity can wreak havoc on your complexion. To ensure your skin remains healthy and glowing while you’re on the go, follow these essential tips for maintaining a good skincare routine during your travels.

 

Stay Hydrated Internally

Hydration is key to maintaining healthy skin, especially when traveling. Before and during your journey, make sure to drink plenty of water. Continue hydrating throughout your flight and replenish your fluids once you arrive at your destination. Consuming foods high in water content, such as cucumbers, watermelon, and oranges, can also help keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

Travel-size hydration sprays are excellent products to keep your skin supple while on the plane and throughout your vacation and fit handily into your purse or carry-on. I like SkinScriptRX’s Cucumber Hydrating Toner to soothe and cool your skin while also combating the drying effects of air travel.

 

Combat Low Humidity on Flights

Studies have shown that humidity levels on airplanes can drop to as low as 10%, which can significantly dehydrate your skin, particularly your cheeks. Cheeks are especially sensitive and prone to dryness, making a deep hydrating moisturizer essential for long flights. To ensure optimal hydration, consider SkinMedica’s Dermal Repair Cream or Skinbetter Science’s Trio Luxe Moisture Treatment. These products are formulated to provide intense moisture and protection to dry areas like the forehead, cheeks, and hands.

 

Properly Pack and Store Your Skincare Essentials

When packing your skincare essentials, opt for professional-grade products in travel-sized versions. Skin Script’s Home Care Essentials kit is a convenient option that includes everything you need for your skincare regimen. Alternatively, you can purchase SkinMedica or Skinbetter travel kits from at your favorite local medspa or online. These products are specifically formulated for your unique skin type, ensuring your skin receives the best care while you travel.

 

Essential Items to Bring on a Trip

To maintain healthy skin while traveling, make sure to bring plenty of water, a good sunscreen, a hydrating lip balm, and a moisturizing spray. These items will help keep your skin protected and hydrated throughout your journey.

 

Proactive Steps to Take While En Route

Taking proactive steps on the way to your destination can significantly improve your skin’s condition. Consider getting a HydroJelly Mask or HydraFacial treatment before you travel for an extra boost of hydration. Once you arrive, treat yourself to a luxury facial at a nearby resort or spa. Facials can help soothe and heal your skin after a long journey, promoting regeneration and self-care.

Traveling doesn’t have to be detrimental to your skin. By staying hydrated, using high-quality skincare products, and taking proactive steps, you can maintain a healthy and glowing complexion no matter where your travels take you.
