How to Maintain Healthy Skin While Traveling this Summer
Maintaining healthy skin while traveling during the summer requires some extra care and attention due to potential exposure to sun, changing environments and travel-related factors. In this blog post, we will be walking you through some of the steps we recommend taking to help you maintain healthy skin while enjoying your travels this summer!
Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin. Furthermore, be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you’re spending time outdoors or swimming. The water attracts the sun rays, so when you are participating in summer activities in the water, this is often when people get burnt as they forget to reapply their sunscreen. If this is something you could see yourself doing, another option is to wear protective clothing. Things like hats, sunglasses and lightweight long-sleeved clothing can help shield your skin from direct sun exposure.
Stay hydrated! By drinking plenty of water throughout your journey, you will avoid becoming dehydrated as travel can lead to dehydration quite often! Additionally, carrying travel sized moisturizers or serums with you is highly recommended as this allows you to keep your skin hydrated during long flights and travel days when your bags are not accessible.
Cleansing and Moisturizing
Cleanse your face daily using a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, sweat and excess oil. Moisturize your skin to maintain hydration and prevent drying choose a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer suitable for your skin type. Definitely check out our PAUME Probiotic Hand Balm for a great moisturizer option! And again, consider using travel-sized skincare products or transferring them into smaller containers to comply with travel restrictions and to ensure you will be able to still use them!
Sleep and Stress Management
Make sure that you are getting enough sleep to allow your body and skin time to regenerate and recover from the travel-related stress. Practice stress management techniques like deep breathing exercises, meditation, or engaging in activities you enjoy to reduce stress levels.
Healthy Diet and Hygiene
Maintain a balanced diet by including foods like vegetables, fruits and foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants to ensure overall skin health. Additionally, practice good hygiene by washing your hands regularly to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria as you will be in highly populated areas while traveling.
Engage in regular physical activity as best you can while away on your travels this summer! It is easy to get busy with all the new exciting things, but even simple movements like stretching or walking can help to improve blood circulation and maintain overall well-being, including your skin health.
Remember, everyone’s skin is unique, so it’s important to adapt these steps to your specific skin type and needs. Additionally, consult with a dermatologist or skin care professional for personalized advice if you have any specific concerns or skin conditions. These are just some simple steps that are easy to implement into your daily routine while away on vacations this summer that will help maintain your healthy skin! But also make sure that you are enjoying your travels and not stressing about all the logistics too much!!
