When I travel I often find myself very busy trying to get through as many activities as possible, with a hectic schedule taking care of my skin usually drops down the list of priorities. When I’m at home and static I’m always on top of it and have a good daily routine, to make sure that effort doesn’t go to waste when I’m on the road I make sure that my skin doesn’t suffer. I’m sure many of you reading this will have experienced sudden breakouts, sun burn and other issues during your holidays. If you don’t bring the essentials with you then you could end up buying something that really doesn’t work for you and if you forget to check the ingredients you are in danger of choosing a product with way too many chemicals in.
To avoid all the issues you need to carry whatever routine you keep to at home whenever you’re away even if it’s just for a couple of nights. After doing loads of research and talking to some pros I managed to pick up some great tips, they’ve been working for years so I wanted to share them with you guys.
Keep It Similar
As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. If you’ve got a routine at home that works for you then you should try to keep your travel routine as similar as possible – there’s no better way! If you have any skin conditions that you need to take care of then you know you need to stick to your routine as strict as possible.
Sometimes you need to pack light and when you do this you need to pack smart by focussing on the essentials. My list of essentials if I’ve got limited room in the case are; suncream, face wipes, a good cleanser and a moisturiser for when I sleep. Of course don’t forget any special creams your doctor may have prescribed.
We all have our go to creams, we’re used to them and are confident in using them. So check to see if they come in a travel size, 100ml is the best size to have because you can bring that in your carry on if needed. Sometimes your faves just don’t come in a suitable size and that’s when you have to get creative. The simplest thing to do is transfer cream from one container into another. If space is a real issue then your case for contacts is ideal.
