Skin Care Tips for Those Who Travel for Work

travelA skincare regimen can make the difference between youthful, glowing skin and dull, dried out itchiness. We all want to take care of our skin on a daily basis, taking great caution to ensure it looks its best – but when your work schedule demands that you spend days and nights on the road, in hotels, or in the air, your skincare regimen can take a backseat. Depending on your various travel situations, too, it can be increasingly impossible to fit in time to take care of your skin. If you’re struggling to fit in time to properly care for your skin, here are a few different ways to make sure your skin is looking its best even after days or weeks of traveling.

Make Sure to Moisturize

Moisturizing is the key to keeping skin elastic, able to bounce back against signs of aging and movements that can cause wrinkles. When skin dries out, it loses its elasticity and deep lines begin to become permanent. Fight the damaging effects of dryness by ensuring that your skin – your face, your limbs, and the rest of your body – is well hydrated. Before getting on a plane, or traveling to a dry climate, switch to a more intense moisturizer.

Skip Makeup Some Days

Think makeup is the key to hiding all of your skin flaws? It’s not – in fact, it could be causing bigger problems if you’re a frequent traveler. Swap your normal foundation powder for a heavy-duty moisturizer the day of your actual travels. This will keep your skin hydrated, and, if you choose one with a tint, glowing just as much as it would with the addition of makeup. If you absolutely cannot go without makeup, it’s crucial that you protect your skin beneath those layers of product. Apply a primer before adding more makeup, which helps all that you put on your face last longer while adding moisture.

Hydrate with Water

Hydration is important, as mentioned above. Yet you don’t have to rely on skincare products alone to make sure dryness doesn’t become a problem when flying. Refresh your skin’s moisture by bringing a mineral water mister that you can spray on your skin. Whenever your skin starts feeling tight, a sign it’s drying out, go ahead and give yourself a quick spritz.
