How to Take Care of Your Skin While Traveling

I love travel! I think that’s pretty obvious if you read my blog, right? Ha! And – as an over 40 gal – it’s really important for me to take care of my skin, especially when I’m on the go and out of my regular routine. So, whether you are searching for a skincare routine (I suggest this one!) or already have one in place, here are a few tips for how to take care of your skin while traveling.

This is a post in collaboration with a brand I believe in, trust, and use as part of my skincare routine.

How to Take Care of Your Skin While Traveling

Soak up the sun? Maybe not.

As we know, the sun is one of the biggest contributors to aging skin. But it’s unavoidable when you are by the water or touring outdoor sites. To stay fresh and flawless during your travels, make sure you pack a sunscreen that will cover and protect.

Size matters.

Consistency in skincare is like consistency in exercise; it doesn’t work if you don’t stick to a routine. Your skincare products should come in travel size (under 3 oz.) so that you may take them on an airplane. Speaking of planes, they are very dehydrating, so using a moisturizer in flight is a must!

Stay hydrated.

There are many health benefits to keeping your body hydrated. I always keep a water bottle with me when I travel. It’s great to fill up after you go through airport security, and having water handy while touring is convenient. A side benefit is clear and hydrated skin, so drink up!

Not all are created equal.

Skincare regimens are not one-size-fits-all. First determine the type of skin you have and then seek out products that will address your problem areas. For me, I always worry about dark spots (hello tanning in my teens!) and fine lines, so keeping those under control is a priority to me.

Consider environmental factors.

If you live on the East Coast as I do, you are used to humid air. But if your travels take you to a dry climate, your travel skin care should should reflect that. Adding in products for extra hydration will make your skin healthy and happy!

Do what you know.

Of course, when you travel, be sure to keep up a good routine. Get enough sleep, be active, eat smart, and do all of the wonderful things you would normally do to ensure lovely skin at home.

Hopefully, these tips on how to take care of your skin while traveling are helpful. We all want to hold on to our youth as long as we can, and taking care of our skin properly is a great start. If you’d like to see how to take care of your hair, just check here.

    Great tips for someone with sensitive skin, like me. I also love to travel and I’ve recently switched to a healthier lifestyle and training for a race. Finding new running routes is always a challenge, such as sneaking in my runs into my destinations. Your blog posts are a true inspiration.

    I once went on a very long trip to Asia and forgot to hydrate more than usual – my skin definitely suffered from it! Learned my lesson!

    While travelling, it’s really important to take care of our skin. Sometime, we take it casually and do a lot of damage to our skin. Thanks for giving us the idea of staying hydrated, it’s very useful for our skin. I loved those easy tips like keeping a bottle handy or keeping a sunscreen handy while traveling.

    I must admit I am hit and miss for properly taking care of my skin when travelling. We do ok with staying out of the sun and staying hydrated most of the time. But probably don’t cleanse enough for all the environmental factors. And eating smart may not always be easy. Some good reminders.

    I travel a bit but unfortunately, I don’t think I care about my skin enough… I probably gonna regret it in a few years so I am thankful for posts like that to motivate me and start doing something I should have started a long time ago. 🙂

    The only time I really get concerned about my skin is very cold weather where my skin gets thickened and then splits. It hurts like hell so I am using so much cream on it and drinking two tonnes of water just to limit the damage. Great tips here and its really vital to look after ourselves not just on the road, but at all times.

    Agree with your care tips. With hectic travels one tends to overlook this largest organ of our body. Remaining well hydrated is the mantra! Will check out this brand you suggested.

    Super useful stuff! My skin is all over the place when I’m on the road 🙁 I find the quality of water to be super important-I can be affected quite easily if my body isn’t used to the water, my skin suffers in turn. But I’m much more aware now. I used to forgo sunscreen altogether!

    Great tips – it’s also challenging to really keep to the skincare routine when travelling. The most important part that you have highlighted is staying hydrated. That is super super important. The different weather in different parts of the world stresses my skin a lot, especially when getting older, so useful tips shared here!

    Very useful post on taking skin care during travel. Skin is highly affected in new geographies and new climate and therefore proper care of skin is highly essential. I too remain hydrated and take of my personal skin creams according to the climate of destination.
