Have you ever noticed what happens to your skin when you travel? Even when you go out of town for one night, it seems like the change in routine can wreak havoc with your skin, leading to dull, dry skin, or even breakouts.
There are several things that can contribute to skin problems when you travel. But, with a little preparation, your skin can look just as great when you travel as it does when you’re at home.
Dehydration can cause skin to look dull and dry.
It is important to remember to get plenty of fluids to stay hydrated when you travel. Especially when it comes to air travel. The air in pressurized airplane cabins is exceedingly dry, which can dry not only your skin, but your eyes, mucous membranes, etc. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine, and you can keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
You fall out of your skin care routine.
Most of us use a fair amount of products to keep our skin healthy and beautiful, and it’s not usually possible or desirable to travel with all our skin care products. So we narrow it down to just the basics. Make certain that your “basics” include a gentle cleanser and a good moisturizer. A Bel Mondo Bio Cellulose Anti-aging Mask can be a great travel companion – it takes up very little space, and can help soothe and moisturize skin that’s stressed due to travel.
Lack of sleep is a common problem during travel.
Extremely early or late flights, or long flights where you just can’t get comfortable can contribute to a pretty serious sleep deficit. While these issues are usually unavoidable, try to avoid the temptation to drink lots of coffee or soda in order to stay awake. Drink plenty of water, and be sure to get some rest as soon as you can.
Travel can be stressful for a lot of people.
Packing, going through security, driving long distances – all these things can take a toll on your skin. Try to avoid stress by giving yourself plenty of time to get to your destination, and remember to take deep breaths from time to time – you’ll be surprised how far a deep breath can go toward relieving stress.
Make sure you eat healthy.
It’s tempting to eat whatever is quick and readily available when you’re traveling. Fast food, vending machine snacks – junk food won’t do your skin any favors, especially if you are used to eating healthy. Pack some healthy snacks so you won’t be tempted by junk food when you’re on the go.
Repair your skin.
When you get to your destination, or get home at the end of your adventure, take 20 minutes (or more, if you want!), and treat yourself to Bel Mondo Bio Cellulose Anti-Aging Facial Sheet Mask. Bel Mondo’s masks are easy to take along with you, and they will not only hydrate and soothe your skin, but they will also pamper you, helping you to relax. Your skin will thank you.
