10 Skincare Tips for Traveling

by Emily Linehan on March 09, 2022

Traveling brings so much happiness: spending time in our favorite places with the ones we love, and building so many new memories! With that being said, it can also be stressful planning, packing, and getting to location.

In the midst of everything that goes along with vacation, we also have to remember to take care of ourselves...and that includes our skincare!

Regardless of your method of travel (plane, car, etc.), I have 10 tips to keep your skin feeling fresh, hydrated, and looking radiant for all of those vacation photos! Let's go!

1. Use a Pre-Travel Hydrating Skin Serum

Keep the skin ultra-moisturized while traveling, especially when traveling by air as that is very drying to the skin.
Before your flight, apply a hydrating serum, such as my Firming Peptide Serum, Skin Quencher Gel, or  Dew Drops Hydrating Serum

2. Apply Sunscreen Before Traveling

No matter the method of transportation, always apply your sunscreen in order to ensure your skin is protected. It's a little known fact that UV Rays can penetrate through glass... and that includes car windows as well as airplane windows.

In fact, the higher you are in altitude, the more damaging the sun's UV rays are, meaning your skin needs protection during every flight.

Not only that, it's common to be on our devices more when we're not in the driver seat. Blue light is also damaging to the skin.

Case in point, no matter how you plan to reach your destination, sunscreen is not optional! 

3. Give Your Eyes and Lips Some TLC

If you're traveling by air or are planning on experiencing some jet lag, your eyes and lips are likely going to show the stress you're enduring before other parts of the skin are.

You may experience bags under the eyes, or puffiness. In that case, it's best to plan ahead and bring your eye treatments with you! These ones are the perfect size for travel.

When it comes to the lips, they can easily become chapped or irritated - especially with modern day mask mandates. Our Bright Eyed Serum can actually be used on the lips for a little boost of plumping hydration! 

4. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!

I say it a lot, but I will say it again... the skin craves water and water helps to plump up fine lines and keep the skin looking radiant. When traveling, it's easy to forget about water-intake, but it's more important than ever (especially when flying!).

I recommend drinking a little bit more than you usually do while traveling. I always drink a liter of water before boarding a flight! 

5. Exfoliate

If you have acne-prone skin like I do, your skin might be a bit congested after a flight. I recommend using a gentle exfoliant after flying (like Skin Smoothing Polish) to buff away that top layer of dead skin. 

6. Avoid "Misting"

When traveling, it seems intuitive to mist your face for a refreshing boost of hydration...but don't do this, especially when traveling by air.

Dry air attracts water, so the mist on your face will actually cause the air to pull more moisture from the skin, leaving your skin more dry than it was before. 

7. Style Your Hair Off of Your Face

If you're prone to breakouts, make sure you style your hair away from your face during travel. This will help prevent breakouts when your skin becomes a little more congested!

8. Wash Your Hands Often

...Especially if you have a tendency to touch your face! When you're extra hydrated, you will likely be taking more trips to the ladies room... which means you'll be exposed to even more germs and bacteria than usual. Make sure to wash your hands often when traveling, and follow up with a moisturizing lotion so your clean hands don't become irritated or dry.

9. Think About Your Accessories

This is important especially if you are vacationing somewhere sunny! Skincare isn't just about skincare products. It's about all of the things we do that affect the skin. Make sure you've packed a hat that shades the face, sunglasses, and appropriate bodycare. 

10. Stay Consistent

Vacation is fun and it can be easy to become lackadaisical about our routines, skincare included. Ensure that you keep your routine consistent (morning, evening, and each time you workout) in order to keep your skin on track, healthy, and glowing... on your vacay and after!
