You may be more than ready to ditch your daily routine for mornings by the pool and afternoons at the spa, but no matter how tempting it may be to push your regular duties to the side, you should keep up with at least one routine – your skin care routine that is. Even if you’re away from your usual crowd, you will still want to look your best, and there are few better ways to accomplish that, then to start your vacation days off with beautiful skin. Don’t worry, you won’t have to pack your entire skin care stash – and you won’t have to spend too many precious moments of your vacation on this skin care regimen either. Here, the best skin care routine to follow while on vacation to maintain beautiful skin throughout your trip:
The best skin care routine while on vacation should include: A multi-tasking way to cleanse.
Your cleanser can wash your face of some surface dirt and oil, but can it remove makeup too? Consider packing a micellar water instead of your regular cleanser. These formulas can remove makeup, cleanse your skin and hydrate it at the same time. Great for dry and oily skin types, an added bonus: Some micellar water formulas are gentle enough for those with sensitive skin too. If you’re traveling on a plane to get to your destination, consider packing a facial wipe like Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes that is designed to do more than remove makeup, but cleanse the skin of dirt and oil too without having to wet or rinse the skin. Aim to wash your face twice a day, in the morning and at night.
The best skin care routine while on vacation should include: A double duty moisturizer.
If you’re going to spend your days outside touring the city or sitting by the beach you should protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. You should also be sure to keep your skin protected and moisturized so that it doesn’t appear dull or dry in pictures. You should apply a moisturizer with SPF broad spectrum protection thirty minutes before going outside. Consider looking for daytime moisturizers with broad spectrum SPF30 like Age Perfect® Hydra Nutrition Facial Oil. Apply it while your skin is still damp after cleansing in the morning.
The best skin care routine while on vacation should include: A skin refining clay mask.
Your skin can undergo a good amount of stress while on vacation, given the traveling, possible change in climate and extra exposure to the elements. Think about it: You typically are inside at work for a good portion of the day, while now you are most likely out and about, seeing the sights. Help your skin recuperate by applying a clay mask two to three times throughout your vacation. Consider applying Pure Clay Mask + Charcoal, for five to ten minutes after cleansing. This formula blend of three mineral clays and Charcoal from Japan will help uneven, rough skin look more even and smooth. It’ll be like you’re treating your skin to a hotel spa treatment, but without the hefty price tag.
The best skin care routine while on vacation should include: A rich night cream or mask.
After cleansing or applying your clay mask, be sure to replenish your skin with moisture before you go to sleep. Consider applying a rich night cream so that your skin can be surged with extra moisture while you sleep.
Don’t let your skin care priorities slide while on vacation, make simple adjustments so that you can have radiant, beautiful skin throughout your entire getaway – and once you return home.
