With MAWC coming up in just a few short weeks, we’ve already started our packing lists. A top priority while traveling? Skincare. Long flights and changes in climate and time make for a surefire way to dismantle your routine. We’re here to help you out and keep skincare nightmares at bay. Follow along for some much-needed skincare tips while traveling.
Wash Your Face Twice Daily
This might seem like something that’s hard to forget, but a travel schedule can get you off track! With a busy work trip, do not miss a wash. This is the best way to prevent debris and oil buildup! You’ll be thankful, trust us.
Avoid Scalding Hot Water
The sensitive skin of the face does not appreciate being washed in the shower. It may feel appropriate, but save it for the colder water temperatures of a sink. It doesn’t help your skin! To add another reason not to do this, water pH levels can be more drying and harsh than the water you use on the regular at home. Avoid hurting your facial skin and stick to lukewarm/cool water.
Double Cleanse Makeup
It’s always better to wear less makeup while traveling to give your skin room to breathe. However, it’s understandable to want to wear a full face sometimes. Especially if it’s an important event. If this is the case, double cleanse with both a makeup removing wipe and a cleanser like Lumiere de Vie Cleanser to really get rid of the gunk underneath. This is the most effective way to remove all makeup.
Avoid swiping your face
Rather than harshly wiping a towel over your face, try lightly dabbing. This will prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
Invest in a good moisturizer.
Good skincare products are an investment that will last a lifetime. It’s especially worth it while traveling and experiencing new elements and climates. We love Lumière de Vie® Intense Rejuvenation Crème for its super-hydrating properties! An ultra rich, fast-absorbing formula specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots as it imparts skin with the look of improved radiance and newly-found firmness.
It’s extremely tempting to want to get a tan and sit in the sun all day. Sure, Vitamin D is good, but only in low levels. Remember to apply and reapply sunscreen every 30 minutes. Skin damage from the sun lasts forever. It’s best to take all the preventative measures you can.
Getting into your pores sometimes requires a special treatment. We love the Lumiere de Vie Moisture Intense Sheet Masque because it’s so easy to travel with. It is the definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements.Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized sheet masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact.
Travel Size Products
This is key when traveling – especially on an airplane. Be sure to buy in mini. Remember that even free sample sizes are easy to come by at drugstores or beauty counters! A favorite product to bring on our carry on bag? Lumière de Vie Rosé Refresher! It’s perfect for rejuvenating your skin, especially when it gets dehydrated while up in the air. This versatile mist is a pick-me-up for your skin that instantly refreshes makeup and provides long-lasting hydration. Revitalize, renew and reset skin with this calming rosewater toner.
Simplicity is Key!
Don’t overpack your beauty bag while traveling. Three to five products are all you need. Travel light: cleanse, mask, moisturize, protect. Depending on your skin type you may want to add a serum or specific product tailor-made for you, but less is more when you’re on the road!
Drinking lots of water, and eating well will also contribute to better skin. That way, half of the work is already done!
Get moving! Stretch on the plane to get your blood circulating.
Safe travels and see you at MAWC!
