The holiday season is fast approaching and it means we need to start planning a suitable skincare routine. Sudden changes in climate, temperature and humidity can cause stress to the skin and damage the skin’s protective barrier. Moreover, you need to think about the actual journey as well. The holiday season is a great time to relax and rejuvenate, but it’s also important to take care of your skin by following a travel-friendly skincare routine. These tips will help you keep your clean skin healthy and happy all season long. How to support your skin throughout?

Cleanse.

A must. Get a travel-sized cleanser to cleanse your face every day, morning and evening. If you have acne-prone skin, choose a gel cleanser with salicylic acid. To avoid breakouts, don’t forget to take off your makeup before going to bed.

Tone. The second step of everyday cleansing removes any last traces of dirt, impurities and makeup your cleanser may have missed.

As you travel from between different climates the pH of the skin can change, which is why it’s important to use a toner to help rebalance it

Choose a hydrating toner if you have dry skin, and one with tea tree if you have oily or acne-prone skin.

Moisturise.

This is a crucial step, regardless of your skin type and skin concerns.

A good rule of thumb is to moisturise your face and body as soon as you get out of the shower. This will help lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day

If you have dry skin, opt for a hydrating cream or lotion. If you have oily skin, choose a light gel-based moisturiser.

Changing a climate can trigger skin helps sensitivity, so it’s important to use a product that’s suited to your skin type. Here when niacin amides, one of the most gentle forms of vitamin B3, can be helpful. It can be found in many products, like night creams, face serums and more. Niacinamides can help soothe the skin, and reduce redness and inflammation.

And don’t forget about your neck and hands!

Protect.

This step is important year-round, but even more so when you’re travelling as you’re exposed to different weather conditions and harsh UV rays

Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, and make sure it’s it’s labelled ‘broad spectrum’ or ‘full spectrum’ to protect against both UVA and UVB rays

Apply sunscreen every day, even if you’re not spending long periods of time outdoors. And don’t forget to reapply every two hours, or more often if you’re sweating or swimming.

SPF lotion or SPF mist are both very effective. Use SPF cream when you know you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors, like at the beach or hiking. If you don’t plan to stay outdoors for too long, an SPF mist should suffice.

Take care of your lips.

Your lips are just as sensitive as the rest of your face, so make sure to protect them with a lip balm that has SPF in it.

Choose a lip balm with ingredients like shea butter or jojoba oil to help hydrate and nourish your lips. Apply it often, especially if you’re spending time outdoors.

Exfoliate.

This step is important to do both before and during your trip

Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, which can make your skin look dull. It also helps your other skincare products work better

Choose an exfoliating cleanser or scrub to use a few times a week. If you have sensitive skin, use a gentle exfoliator.

Mask.

This step is totally optional, but if you have the time, it’s a great way to give your skin some extra TLC

Choose a face mask that’s suitable for your skin type. If you have dry skin, opt for a hydrating mask. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, choose a clarifying or detoxifying mask.

Apply the mask for the time indicated on the package, then rinse it off with warm water.

During your flight.

The air inside the cabin is very dry, which can sap moisture from your skin. To combat this, drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate you. Apply a hydrating face mist or toner throughout the flight to help keep your skin hydrated. And don’t forget to moisturise!

if you have a long-haul flight, it’s a good idea to bring along a sheet mask or two to use during the flight. This will help keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh. Try to get some sleep.

dr. Marchbein says “Sleep deprivation can lead to increased inflammation, which can exacerbate skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis.” So do your best to get some shut-eye on the plane. If you can’t sleep, at least try to rest with your eyes closed.
