Avoid touching your face with soiled hands, as it can cause unnecessary rashes and irritations.
As holidays approach, your planner gets occupied with trip itineraries and sticky notes on them suggesting things-to-do. All of us deserve a sun-soaking vacation once a year. After all, it recharges the tired soul, and resuscitates you from the drudgery of the mundane.
However, while you are on those exhilarating adventures absorbing those breathtaking views, and being humbled by the beauty and bounty of nature, your skin can have a contrary experience if you do not take proper care.
There are some beauty tips that you need to keep in mind while traveling. Getting a sun-kissed skin is fine, but having a sunburn in the bargain can really make you repent the time at the beach. So, here are some important tips to care of your skin while traveling. Let's see how the simplest of things can save your skin from the brunt of your adventures.
Did you know that prolonged exposure to the sun's rays can lead to premature aging of your skin? Well, yes! So, let's start packing with a big bottle of sunscreen with a good SPF value.
This will give a good cover from the devilish UV rays, and protect your skin while traveling. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen before stepping out so that it gets some time to soak in.
Pack your kit with the essentials you absolutely cannot do without. If you need to get ready before the plane touches down, remember to pack the essentials in your handbag as per airport authorities' guidelines.
If you forget to carry a cleanser, remember, coconut oil is a good cleanser too. All you need to do is massage a generous amount of oil on your face, rub it till all the makeup comes out, and wipe it off with tissues. Later, just wash your face with warm water. This way your skin will get moisturized too.
It helps in refreshing and hydrating your skin, reviving the lost glow, and reducing puffiness.
These provide a cooling relief, especially when you are traveling in hot and arid places that are dusty. This also saves you the hassle of washing your face every time you feel icy.
This will also help to lock the moisture of your skin, and prevent unwanted dehydration. So, do remember to apply a good amount of your regular moisturizer before you hit the bed every night.
However, in case you forget this item, place some crushed ice, wrapped in your handkerchief, over your eyes for 30 minutes. As your eyes soak in the coolness, the puffiness will begin to vanish. You can also use tea bags, which are easily available in hotels. Place refrigerated tea bags on your eyes for 15-30 minutes, and wake up with a fresh face.
Use Face and Body Scrub Regularly
Dear backpackers, a face and a body scrub is a must-have on the go. The dust, grime, dirt, and the sheer muck of nomadic traveling can take a serious toll on your skin.
Scrub your skin with your regular face and body scrub, and some warm water, to exfoliate it from time to time. This will keep your skin supple, smooth, and glowing at all times for those memorable photographs!
Traveling involves experimenting with your taste buds, and may involve pushing your tolerance to the extreme. However, do so with a hint of caution. Divide your choices into healthy eating choices, and leave the remainder to experiments of gluttony. Do remember to drink lots of water to prevent dehydration, and to flush out the toxins if any.
Prefer BB Cream Over Foundation
Those of you who cannot stay away from foundation, well, you just need to. However, there is just the right option for you. There are ample BB creams out there, which will suit your skin type and tone.
These tinted moisturizers have some sunscreen in them too. Hence, they serve function and fashion at the same time. You can even apply blush and other eye makeup products on this.
These were the ten commandments of skincare while traveling. To avert any kind of skin infections, always keep an all-purpose antiseptic cream handy. Apply it immediately if you deem it necessary. Taking care of your skin is a matter of commitment to living healthy and looking good.
