Keeping Your Skin in Tip-Top Condition While on the Road



Anyone who travels often knows that being on the road can do a number on your skin. For instance, airplane travel can seriously dehydrate skin and cause water retention. This can lead to skin irritations, flakiness, and puffiness, especially if you already have sensitive skin. Having a great skincare routine while traveling will help to ensure that your skin is always looking and feeling its best, even when you are far from home.

Maintain Your Usual Skincare Routine

Rather than getting on the road and purchasing new products that are unfamiliar to your skin, keep up with your usual routine. That way, you avoid dealing with possible negative interactions between products and your skin, and your skin stays fresh, clean, and healthy with the routine that it is used to. Invest in reusable, travel-size containers so that you can take small amounts of your regular products with you while saving space in your luggage.

If you don't already have a skincare routine, you may want to find a system that works for both your wants and your needs. Whether you want one step or 12 steps, there is a regime out there that is perfect for you. Checking out this Thrive Skin review for an example of a multi-step skincare routine may be helpful.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Apply your favorite moisturizer regularly before your trip, and keep up the habit while you're on the road. If your skin is already on the dry side, moisturize a little more often in the days prior to boarding a flight. Sometimes, you can't always control things like being exposed to extremely dry air, but you can control how much you moisturize. This can help to avoid dry patches and redness caused by parched skin.

Keep Stress At Bay

Traveling can be extremely stressful. Keep stress away by being proactive. Leave early in order to anticipate travel issues like traffic, bad weather, and flight delays that can cause anxiety. Be sure to get enough sleep. Lack of shut-eye can cause irritability, attention deficits, and headaches, and all of these things can add to or cause unnecessary stress.

Eat and Drink Well

It has long been said that you are what you eat. Well, the way that your skin looks and feels is directly impacted by what you consume. While traveling, this is especially important because of the other factors involved in traveling that can cause stress to your epidermis. Avoid eating food with too much salt, as this can cause water retention. Try to eat as many nutrient-dense items as you can. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, yogurt, eggs, and seafood are some examples of foods that can keep you feeling your best.

Traveling can do a number on your immune system even if you are making good, healthy choices, and when your immune system is not doing its job, that can show on your skin. It is a good idea to supplement your diet with extra vitamins and minerals that help support your immune system. Vitamins C and D, zinc, echinacea, and elderberry have all been studied for their potential to boost the immune system. These supplements are widely available and come in many different forms, from dissolvable powders to capsules to gummies. Ensure that you are doing all that you can to keep your body and skin healthy by choosing a supplement routine to increase your immunity.

Few things in life are as satisfying as looking in the mirror and liking the skin that you see in your reflection. Keep your skin in great condition no matter where you are by putting these tips into practice.
