Skin is the largest sensory organ is the body. Hence, it needs good care and attention. For a few women out there, travelling is a part of their life, either as their profession or lifestyle or fun. This "constraint" makes keeping up with the regular skincare routine an impossibly difficult task. Also, it is very understandable as there is shortage of time and space. But trust me, there is absolutely no reason to flip as I have some easy tips that will not only help you look gorgeous but also keep your skin flawlessly healthy.
Yes, that is right, it is important to ask yourself that question. You might think you have the answer, but my suggestion is to research a little more about the climate of the place you are headed to. This will help you decide the suitable products to be carried along.
*COLD : Skin tends to get dry in cold conditions. So, keep moisturising your skin every now and then. Perform the scratch test, as I call it. Just gently scratch your skin around thigh area or forearm. If it leaves a trail then probably it is time for you to moisturise . Avoid washing your face too much. Soap usually tends to make the skin drier so do not use soaps to cleanse your face. Instead use a soap free face wash.
*HUMID : According to me this is the most horrible condition as skin needs a lot more care than usual. You need to exfoliate your skin over and over and over again. This will remove the dead skin and make your skin look clearer. Steam and scrub once in two days so that the blocked pores carrying oil, dirt and sebum open up. Post this, apply product containing salicylic acid ,preferably a cleanser.
*WINDY : On days when it is usually windy I feel like all the dust and dirt of the town is stuck on my face. If you feel the same way , avoid wearing heavy creams. Instead apply serum or a very light cream. Also cover your face with a stole or dupatta.
2. Pack sensibly and downsize.
* MUST : face wash, toner, cleanser, moisturiser/face oil, make up essentials, 2 to 3 boxes of tissues.
Acclimatizing your skin is very important.Your skin should be able to withstand the intense climatic condition and respond without much hassle. By this I don't mean that go put your head inside the refrigerator just because you are travelling to some place cold. Just take a few cubes of ice and rub it on your face before performing the skin care routine. Start using the products you have decided to carry three days prior to departure. Your Skin will feel happy once you expose it to the real habitat.
4. Travelling isn't the best time for experimentation.
5. Eat healthy and sleep well.
P.S- Do not forget to remove your make up before sleeping.
6.Don't be a lazy bone.
Once you are back home, make sure you hit a spa and get a face clean up. As this is very important. God knows what torture you put your skin through. Pamper yourself and then get back to your daily skin care regime. In the mean while keep your make up light and fresh.
