Between Spring Break and summer vacations coming up, now is the perfect time to commit to your beauty routine while traveling. Seems simple enough right, but who actually takes time while decompressing and relaxing to think about things like that? Most of us don’t, but we all should. Think about it, with social media pictures rampant (and once a picture is out there, it’s out there) don’t we all want to look our best? Of course we do, so keep reading to find out a few simple tips on how to have a fabulous face during your next getaway!
First, hydration is key! Most of us get out of our water routine (making sure we drink 8 full glasses every day) when we travel, but that doesn’t mean it’s less important. While at home, I literally walk around all day long with a 20 ounce Tervis Tumbler of water and I never get in the car to go even 2 miles without making sure it’s full! That’s obviously more difficult on an exotic island, but not impossible. The last few years when we go to Key West in the spring, as soon as we get there, we stop at the local grocery store and buy a case of bottled water. That way there is always access to water while we are in our room, but we can also take a bottle while walking or biking around the island. If you are flying to your destination of choice, we know that planes are notoriously dehydrating… so as painful as it may be to buy that $4 bottle at the airport, do it-your body (and skin) will thank you!
Second, yes-you still need to wash your face every night before going to bed! I know it’s much easier to say it’s not a big deal or one night can’t hurt. Well, if you’re on a week long trip and every night is that one night, that’s a week of gunk on your face while your body is resting and repairing. Gross! Just take a few minutes to at least wash your face each night…even if you don’t apply all your usual nightly lotions and potions, at least it’s clean. While I’m talking about skincare, it is important to pack your normal products in travel sizes. I mean, who wants a breakout or reaction to a new product while on vacay? Continue reading
