Traveling can sometimes take away your skin's natural glow. Exhaustion, ignorance, improper diet, hectic schedule and the changing weather are a deadly combination when it comes to ruining a glowing skin.
Here are 5 tips by Megha Shah, cosmetologist, Beauty and Curves Clinic to keep your skin healthy and supple while you travel.
» Keep your moisturizer handy: Apply intense moisturizing cream the night before you are traveling. This will help you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, saving you from the adverse weather conditions. Many places with direct sunlight or wind dry the skin and damages the texture. Re-apply moisturizer while you travel to maintain a soft, supple skin irrespective of the weather conditions.
» Sunscreen: Irrespective of the season, apply sunscreen generously to save your skin from the harsh effects of UV rays. This way you can protect your skin from tanning and sunburns. Excessive exposure to the sun also results in early aging. Therefore, sunscreen is an ideal product to save yourself.
» Cleanser: While traveling, your skin attracts a lot of dirt and dust which gets accumulated and cause breakouts. A cleanser will wash it all out and keep your skin clean and refreshed. It is also important to keep your cleanser with you as even a slight change in skincare products may act abruptly on your skin and cause a vacation breakout.
» Comfort clothing: While going out, you will be engaged in sporty activities. Comfortable clothing will save you from issues like irritation, itching, and rashes. Skin allergies and some types of contact dermatitis need to be diagnosed and taken care as one observes them.
» Drink water: Apart from keeping your body happy, water is a boon for your skin as well. Often, we skip drinking water while traveling simply because of the hassle to find a restroom. But this habit not only disturbs your system but also ruins your skin.
