4 Tips for Taking Care of Your Skin on Spring Vacation
Let's be honest—when you're on vacation, your skin care routine can slip your mind (except applying SPF, of course). Most of the time, you're simply too busy having fun to make it your top priority, even though it's just as important as ever. Fortunately, you can use a few simple tips to stay on top of your skin care routine while enjoying some time to relax and recharge. Before your travels take you to warm destinations for spring vacation, it's a good idea to consider what you want to include on your skin care packing list and how to maximize room in your suitcase. Start by evaluating which products you absolutely need for the duration of your trip and which ones, can stay home. Vacation often helps us simplify our skin care routine and can be the perfect way to eliminate unnecessary products even after we get home.
Keep It Simple and Similar to Your Usual Routine
Vacation probably isn't the best time to try new strategies or products. Switching up your typical regimen can contribute to breakouts or other response you don't usually experience. Instead, bring the products your skin knows and loves. After all, you know they work well for your skin. You likely only need a few essentials to keep your routine simple: makeup remover, cleanser, serum/moisturizer, and sun protection. These essentials keep your routine easy and keep your skin happy.
Cleanse Twice Each Day (Double Cleanse at Night)
After traveling and exploring in your vacation city, your skin will benefit from double cleansing in the evening to remove SPF, makeup, dirt, pollution, and grime. What does a double cleanse look like? First, use a cleansing oil you lift makeup, primer, sunscreen, and any other oil-based impurities from your skin. Next, use a water-based, balancing face wash to help remove excess oil, dirt, and sweat. A dual cleanse is designed to balance your skin so use products that don't over-dry or strip your skin of its natural oils. Once you double cleanse, use a high-active, antioxidant-rich serum to hydrate and nourish your skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In the morning simply use a water-based, balancing face wash to prepare your skin for the day. If you are oily, a dual cleanse may sound like the opposite of everything you have heard about for proper cleansing and hydrating, yet oil works like a magnet to other oil and helps your body regulate oil production. If you're traveling to a warm destination, be sure to get vacation-ready with a clean skin care set of effective products for oily skin that work well for all skin types.
Protect with an SPF 50 Serum
Did you know that most visible skin concerns can be linked to exposure to the sun? You'd think that would be enough to never forget your SPF, but many of us are guilty of skipping it anyway. In fact, according to skincancer.org, only 11% of us wear sunscreen on a daily basis. Most of us despise the idea of putting on thick, sticky sunscreen made with potentially harsh ingredients on our faces. Especially, when our skin pays the price from breakouts to lasting irritation. Vacation, especially to warm places puts sunscreen front and center in our skin care routine, yet even if you are not traveling to a tropical paradise; now is a great time to think about a sunscreen you can wear on vacay and every day. Search for a multipurpose sun care serum that is ultra-lightweight and is formulated with hyper-clean ingredients. This vegan sunscreen is non-irritating, non-comedogenic and feels incredible while protecting your skin from UVA/UVB and Blue Light rays. The right formula should go on clear and smooth. With these simple spring vacation tips, your skin care routine can help you feel ready to take on the day no matter what you have planned.
