Travel Skincare Tips: The Vacation Edition
1. Keep it clean
Wipe away the day before you hop on a long-haul flight. Out of time? Simple® Facial Cleansing Wipes will do the trick just before the seat belt sign comes on. Not only do they include Triple Purified Water to gently lift impurities, they won't leave skin feeling dry mid-flight. Added plus? They won't get snagged at security. Winning!
2. Rehydrate sensitive skin in-flight
Airplanes and airports have a pesky habit of dehydrating skin. The reason? Cabins have really low levels of humidity, meaning your skin loses moisture. We like to grab an extra bottle of water before we get on (post-security, of course) so we're well hydrated right from take-off. On the plane, stop more moisture loss in your skin by using a hydration helper like Simple® Water Boost Hydrating Booster. It has a soft, silky texture, boosts moisture levels in your skin, and instantly relieves that dry, tight skin irritation that a long-haul flight can bring.
3. Pack light(er)
Oh, the eternal struggle. Keeping the pounds down in your carry-on. "We don't need another hydrating sheet mask," said nobody, ever. One way to beat the excess pounds is to pick multitasking products. Micellar water? It's a great gentle cleanser, removes stubborn waterproof mascara, and can also be used as a refreshing toner, even on sensitive skin. Stash a few gentle, alcohol-free sheet masks in your bag for those on-the-go holiday moments when skin needs a boost. They're super light, so you can squeeze in a few!
4. Refresh on landing
Your skin doesn't know that you've taken it on vacation. New temperatures, fluctuating humidity, pollution levels and even switching from soft or hard water can impact your skin. Why not give it a heads-up and prep it right before you disembark? For tired eyes, try Simple® Kind To Skin De-stress Sheet Mask, which can instantly soothe tired puffiness under the eyes, and includes gentle ingredients your delicate skin will love.
5. Keep sun safe with an SPF
You've landed, unpacked and are heading out to explore. Rain or shine, keep SPF within easy reach to protect your skin. It may be sunscreen with moisturizer or moisturizer with sunscreen, but be sure to pack it all the same. Yep, we've heard it before! But remember, sun damage happens beyond the burn and lasts a lot longer than your tan line. The trick? Avoid those rays between 10 am and 3 pm (when the sun's at its hottest and most damaging to skin).
Wherever your travel plans take you, be sure to stock up on some travel skincare essentials and try some of these tips to keep your skin feeling calm and vacation-happy. A basic skincare routine will go a long way.
