It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also the hardest for your skin.
Travel, sugar, sparkling wine… Christmas holidays are a difficult time where your beauty routine is impossible to follow. For this reason I create this quick guide for your Holiday travel skin care: here you can find some life-changing tips for your travel beauty routine. I found this tips on webmd.com!
HYDRATION IS FUNDAMENTAL
Especially before a flight, but before a travel in general, it’s fundamental to moisturize your skin! This is because the air around you it’s not pure. You can notice it: after a travel, your skin and your hair are visibly stressed, so the first step to take care of your skin is hydration. Chose your favorite moisturizer or create your bio-homemade facial mask!
CHILL OUT PUFFY EYES
During the traveling time, puffy eyes are the normality. You can reduce the under-eye puffiness putting a crushed ice in a washcloth and applying it under the eyes. “It’s an automatic wake-up call that makes you look and feel immediately fresher”, say Pam Inman, American Hotel Lodging Association vice president. You can also find out some bio-recipes to get rid of your puffy eyes, here.
PERK UP YOUR PEEPERS
Watching back-to-back in-flight movies, or reading that paperback novel cover to cover, can also cause you to arrive at your destination with red, watery, not-so-attractive eyes. To avoid it, Los Angeles image consultant Allison Dickson, founder of TheA-List.com, says don’t forget to bring eyedrops. “They will lubricate and soothe eyes if you’re reading or watching a movie, and refresh and wake up your eyes if you nap,” she says.
KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF YOUR FACE
To minimize breakouts while you’re on vacation, dermatologist Erin Welch, MD, says to avoid touching your skin while you travel. “You can pick up any number of unknown bacteria that can result in any number of skin problems after you arrive,” says Welch, a professor of dermatology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. If you’re going to apply makeup while you’re in transit, Welch says use an antibacterial hand wash on your hands first to further protect your skin.
SLATHER ON THE HAND CRÈME
Never leave home without a tube of your favorite hand cream in your tote bag, and use it liberally throughout the trip, says esthetician Maxine Siegel. This will not only keep your hands from drying out, says Siegel, but in the event you do need to wash them, it can help counter the effects of harsh commercial-grade soaps found in public restrooms.
