Have you recently traveled anywhere?
Traveling is a lot of fun, but it can get stressful and take a toll on your physical appearance. And when you don’t look your best, it can affect the level of your enthusiasm and excitement about visiting a new place. Can you imagine avoiding the camera because you don’t feel confident enough?
We understand how frustrating that can be. Breakouts or eye bags aren’t cool, after all. But you have nothing to worry about, because we’re here to help! Just follow our basic skincare guidelines for keeping healthy and clear skin wherever you go, and you’d experience the difference!
1. Drink Lots and Lots of Water. Keeping yourself hydrated is crucial for the health of your skin. Drinking water will also keep you from bloating and maintain your skin’s clear and hydrated appearance.
The night before you’re scheduled to travel, apply intense moisturizer on your face. You also have the option to use a thermal spray to feel fresh all the time!
2. Put on a Primer Before Applying Foundation. A primer can help smooth fine lines or wrinkles. If you have large pores, skipping the primer isn’t recommended. Not only can it protect your skin, it also makes the foundation or makeup last longer too.
Make sure to invest in two-in-one products in order to keep your makeup as simple as it gets. This will save you a lot of time if you’re constantly on the move. Some carryon lip tint, for example, can double as cheek tint. Go for nude colors, as they look great on anyone!
3. Avoid or Minimize drinking alcohol. Alcohol dehydrates your skin, Well, it actually dehydrates your whole body, and you skin happens to be your largest organ. You may even notice how it bloats your stomach too.
Getting carried away with alcohol can affect how you look, not only tomorrow, but also in the future. Skin disorders such as rosacea are linked to alcohol, so be extra mindful of your consumption.
Traveling for fun may offer plenty of opportunities to drink and be merry, but your skin (and your liver) won’t respond pleasantly.
4. Take off your makeup. It’s been said again and again, but going to bed wearing makeup is terrible for your skin. Maybe you’re too tired to wash your face. Maybe you think that wearing it for a night can’t cause serious damage.
If you can’t be truly bothered, at the very least, wipe your makeup off with baby wipes. The wipes would somehow get rid of the makeup, grime, and dirt that had clung onto your pores.
Speaking of which, you must also clean your makeup brushes several times a week. Mild shampoo can be used to clean them. Don’t wait for your pores to get clogged or for blemishes to resurface on your skin!
