The holiday season is upon us and traveling to our holiday destination might also affect our skin.
Here are a few top tips to help you get through it.
Invest in medical grade skin care:
Quality medical grade skin care products last longer and offer more benefits than over-the-counter products. It has a higher percentage active ingredient and less hydrators and fillers which means that you can use less product and get better results. If you are uncertain which product will be best for your skin, consider scheduling an appointment with your skin therapist for a product consultation.

When packing your toiletry bag, you may be tempted to leave a few products at home. To make it simple for yourself try at least to pack the essentials for holiday. Make sure that you pack your cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen. A simplified skin care routine can minimize your travel stress without compromising your skin.
Travel size products
Most skin care product ranges have travel sizes available or even travel kits. Remember to ask your skin care therapist to advise you on travel sizes.
This might probably be the most important product that you should consider taking with you on holiday. Make sure that you have a medical grade sunscreen that offers better protection than those you buy over the counter.

Tips during traveling:
A long plane ride or drive in your car can dehydrate the skin especially because of air conditioners. To minimize dryness, you can apply your favourite moisturiser before boarding your plane or before your long drive. Pack your favourite bottle of facial mist or facial hydrator to spirits during the long drive or flight, this will ensure that the skin will feel refreshed.

Pack sheet masks:
Sheet masks don’t take any extra space in your hand luggage and is great for long Overseas flights and will help to keep the skin hydrated and nourished.

Keeping your hands off your face will prevent breakouts. We are also more exposed to bacteria traveling at the airport or even public restrooms. Make sure that you also pack some antibacterial hand sanitizer or hand wipes.
