How to Protect Your Skin During Travel

Protect Your Skin During Travel


As travel restrictions begin to lift just in time for summer, people who have been stuck at home for months are making vacation plans that include sun and fun! If you’re lucky enough to score super-cheap air travel and make a getaway during the summer months, it’s essential to make sure that your skincare regimen is up to the task. Here are some quick and easy tips for taking good care of your skin even when you’re miles from home!

Mini-Size Me!

It can be tempting to slack on your daily skincare regimen while you’re on vacation, especially when you discover that the TSA won’t allow your usual products due to their size! If the idea of putting all your skincare products into teeny tiny bottles is making you tired already, fear not- numerous luxury skincare brands offer travel-size versions of their most popular products. Investing in the micro versions of your favorite items allows you to stay on top of your daily skin routine no matter where your travel takes you!

Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!

It’s always important to keep skin hydrated and well-moisturized, but that goes double when you’re traveling. Why? The pressurized air in an airplane cabin can be excessively drying to your skin. ClareBella Aesthetics, OKC skin care experts recommend that you slather on a lightweight, non-comedogenic (that means non-pore clogging) moisturizer twice a day to ensure that you are locking in your skin’s natural moisture and keeping it supple and soft. Pro tip: a moisturizer that contains sunscreen gives you one less thing to pack while still offering the right amount of sun protection. Look for a moisturizer that packs the double whammy of sunscreen before heading off on your travels. It’s a win-win!

Don’t Forget Sunscreen

We don’t know who needs to see this, but...WEAR SUNSCREEN! Avoiding sunscreen application not only increases your risk factor for developing skin cancer, but the UVA and UVB rays from the sun can have damaging effects that will do a serious number on the texture and pigmentation of your skin. Please do your skin a favor and apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 before going outside. Not only will you avoid a painful, vacation-ruining sunburn, but you could literally be saving your own life!

Taking a relaxing, much-needed vacation to an exotic locale after months at home doesn’t mean that you should also take a vacation from your skincare regimen. Plan ahead and prioritize your skin’s health so you can effortlessly maintain your usual radiant glow while you’re soaking up the summer sun. Bon Voyage!
