With summer vacations and warm days ahead, it can be challenging to follow a normal skincare routine; however, to keep your skin looking consistently healthy, vibrant, and young throughout the summer, it’s essential to stay consistent with your skincare regimen while vacationing. For this reason, we wanted to share a few tips to ensure your skin will remain radiant and beautiful in the midst of your summer vacations.
1.) Drink extra water to reduce puffiness.
The majority of people tend to slack on their water intake . But, did you know puffy eyes, as well as puffiness or bloating of the body, can be a result of water retention? When the body senses that it is not getting enough water, it will begin storing it, which results in visible puffiness around the eyes and other parts of the body. Drinking plenty of water helps to keep your kidneys working properly, allowing your skin to detoxify itself naturally.
2.) Use a scrub to combat dryness and flakiness.
While away on your travels it is important to take a scrub with you to gently exfoliate buildup that can be caused from varying temperature (indoor air conditioning, outdoor heat, etc.), outdoor activities, and pollutants. Applying a scrub twice weekly in the evening will exfoliate your skin and restore moisture lost during the day.
If you need a scrub to suite your skin type, here are two that we often recommend:
- Skin Zyme from Jan Marini. Skin Zyme is great for flaky or peeling skin because it selectively breaks down dead and damaged skin cells, while resurfacing without irritating sensitive skin.
- Organic Apricot Scrub from SOTHYS. This organic scrub gently exfoliates while eliminating impurities and dead skin cells trapped in the follicles (pores) that can lead to comedogenic (pore-clogging) activity.
3.) Take your products in travel size so you don’t miss any steps.
When traveling, we’ve known women to leave behind some of their skincare products to make room in their suitcase. Rather than sacrificing your skin’s health, opt for travel size containers that you can purchase at most pharmacies.
If you want a travel size skincare routine already packaged for you, we suggest SOTHYS skincare products in travel size (only $17.00) so you won’t miss any necessary steps required to keep your skin cleansed and soothed.
