Travel Essentials - Your Summer Skin Care Routine

16/05/2018

Did you know your skin is your biggest organ? Which is easily influenced by our surrounding environments, climate changes and our own bodily processes. As does frequent travel, it changes the way our skin behaves so it's important we look at our skin care routines to keep it healthy and glowing no matter what we through at it!
 
1. Hydration
Hydration is one of the most important aspects to maintain in our skin. Both travel and changes in temperature can lead to dehyrdated and tight skin - so using products that contain Hyaluronic Acid is a must! Hyaluronic Acid helps to immediately hydrate and shield against moisture loss.
 
2. SPF
Perhaps THE most important for travel, SPF stands for sun protection factor and represents a sunscreen to shield against UV rays. Did you know UVA causes aging and UVB burning? Always be sure your SPF protects you from both and we would always recommend using anything from SPF30-50 nothing less! 
 
3. In- Flight Skin Care
Did you know that the humidity level when flying can drop below 10%? This climate will literally suck all the moisture from your skin and I know we all may be tempted to relax with glasses of our favourite tipple but this also dehydrates us. SO be sure to pack in your hand luggage a bottle of water and hydrating products - we recommend any serums or any facial oils as they can provide a layer of essential oils, lipids and to seal in moisture.
 
4. Travel Size
Don't scrimp on your skin care when travelling! Be skin savvy and grab multi-functioning products too - like an SPF that is also a makeup primer or an acid cleanser which cleanses and exfoliates at the same time! We recommend the Flint + Flint range for the perfect travel size essentials!
 
Enjoy your holidays!
