It’s no secret, traveling can absolutely destroy your skincare routine. Keeping up with skin care is tough when you’re on the go! Between baggage liquid restrictions and altered sleep schedules, you may feel like you are destined for failure.
In this article, we will go over three ways that you can keep up with your skincare while traveling.
Choose Products That Keep Skincare Simple
When you are traveling, it is important to keep your skincare routine like what it is otherwise. However, with a really detailed skincare routine, it can be difficult to do so and have enough room to bring it all with you. We recommend sticking to the basics when traveling. The absolute essentials are cleansing products, sunscreen (SPF is a must!), moisturizer, an anti-aging product, and a gentle exfoliating product at minimum.
We know that skincare routines can be complicated, but when traveling you are more likely to stick to something that includes fewer steps.
Build a Routine That Does More for You
Like we mentioned, keeping it simple will be the best way to ensure that you are sticking to your skincare routine while on the go. So why not pick products with unique ingredients that can do more for you? For example, take this Collagen SPF product which acts as your sunscreen while giving you anti-aging benefits:
Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50+
Its sleek design is perfect to travel with and stick in your toiletry kit, purse, or keep in your car for you to use on-the-go. There’s nothing worse than a bottle that’s too big, or one with a pump and cap that’s prone to leaking.
Konjac sponges are another great way to cleanse and exfoliate your skin. These sponges can have varying ingredients in them to help elevate your skincare routine while not overpacking. Consider this one with French clay or one with activated bamboo charcoal.
A soft, gentle cleansing & exfoliating facial sponge that thoroughly cleanses the face for a healthy, more radiant glow.
All natural, made from Konjac root.
The Simply Splendid Konjac sponges come in a tear drop shape, perfect for getting into corners of the face, making it the best to use.
These are the best gentle exfoliator because you can use them with or without a cleanser! Simply wet the sponge and use all over the face and neck for an all around cleanse. They are great for sensitive skin, and suitable for all skin types.
Stay on Top of Your Routine
Whatever your routine may be, it is important to not get discouraged. Regardless of the odd hours you might be sleeping or the new environment you may be in, you should try to stick with your routine as best as possible. It can be hard to simply “do it before bed” when you don’t know when going to bed will be.
Instead, try to set reminders on your phone or dip into a restroom to freshen up when you have the time. Remember that SPF is essential while you are traveling. If you’re going to do just one thing, it should be sunscreen!
To conclude, you may have resigned yourself to the fate of skipping out on skincare, but it doesn’t mean that you should! With the right planning and the right products, you can continue to take care of your skin while on the go.
