When you travel a lot like I do, it’s especially important to check up on your skin and hair afterwards. From the lack of air and germs on planes to the change in climates, your body can really react to the changes in environment, oftentimes for the worse if you don’t pay attention. So I’ve rounded up my top 6 travel beauty tips for how to keep your skin and hair healthy during and after traveling. Just like at home, a healthy self-care routine is key!
Make Time for a Facial
There’s nothing quite like a facial to renew and rejuvenate your skin. If you have time on your trip, try to squeeze in a facial. Look out for one that will moisturize, relieve it from dehydration and stress, and smooth fine lines. I love how alive my skin feels after a good facial. If you can’t make it on your trip, then schedule one when you get home. I recommend an anti-oxidant facial or deep cleansing facial , which focus on exfoliating and detoxifying your skin.
Use a Mask
Apply a hydrating face mask before you fly to help your skin retain moisture on the flight is one of the most useful travel tips. The humidity on planes is very low and it often dries out your skin. Also, it’s smart to pack a single-use mask to apply after a couple of days of traveling. It’ll calm irritated skin and restore some moisture
to your skin. Book a hydrating facial when you return home, so that your skin stays soft and glowy. I recommend using an at-home mask or getting a facial 2-3 times a week when you’re traveling to keep your skin looking healthy.
Deep Condition Your Hair
Have you ever noticed flight attendants wearing their hair up in a bun? That’s less a fashion statement and more a way for them to keep their hair moisturized. You can apply a hair mask or deep conditioner before your flight, then throw it up in a bun. This keeps your hair from looking dull and frizzy all the way through the next day. If you want your hair looking extra shiny and bouncy, book a revitalizing hair treatment either on your trip or when you get home.
It’s no secret that keeping hydrated while traveling is one of the best things you can do. Drinking lots of water can help ensure your complexion remains clear and you don’t have any breakouts. Every passenger on your flight is taking in oxygen, meaning the plane has to pump fresh air into the cabin. At very high altitudes, the air is especially dry. The general rule of thumb is to drink at least 8 ounces of water on your flight, or a litre of water for every 4 hours you’re in the air. For extra skin hydration, spray your face with rose water and apply extra moisturizer.
Refresh Your Eyes
As someone who wears contacts and battles dark under-eye circles, I always make sure to pack an eye creme or roller to apply during a flight. If your eyes get puffy while traveling, simply roll around your eyes for a couple of minutes. This will de-puff them and make you feel refreshed. While I’m at it, I’ll oftentimes use my roller on my cheek contours and my jawline as well. You can also carry along an eye cream with you. When you get to your hotel room, stick it in the fridge. Apply the cold cream around your eyes to decrease puffiness and increase your circulation. It’s one of my secret travel beauty tips! Or, you can always book a face slimming facial and they will massage away your puffiness and soothe your face.
Stick to Your Routine
Whatever you’re doing while traveling, don’t let it break the healthy habits of your normal daily routine. For me, this means always taking my makeup off before bed, applying a moisturizer with SPF during the day and a night cream at night, and drinking at least 2-3 litres of water a day. I’ve noticed that keeping my skin protected, rain or shine, is the best way to prevent premature wrinkles and keep your skin feeling smooth and soft. My skin can be temperamental while traveling, so I always take all of my makeup off no matter how tired I am. I keep my skin, my hair, and my body at hydrated as possible by drinking water constantly. If you can keep your routine up, you’re skin and body will regulate itself and thank you for it.
I hope you find these 6 travel beauty tips helpful. I always try my best to treat my skin and hair with extra care while traveling. That way when I am back to my normal work routine, I can hit the ground running feeling refreshed and relaxed!
