Most times, you’ve filled your box with clothes and shoes, sat on it to force it shut, then remember you didn’t include your body lotion or other skin ointment. It is at this junction I usually shrug, and expect nature to take care of me.
But, the older you get, the more particular you are about certain things. It is never too late to start taking better care of your skin because like it or not, it is one of the first things people notice about you.
It is also important to note that varied climate change impacts your skin negatively when you travel facing elements other than what your skin might be used to.
Whether you have dry or oily skin, it is good to stick with a skin care routine. How do you ensure to stick with your routine while you travel?
Refillable Bottles are your Friends
There might not be enough space in your box to carry around your huge lotion bottle. The best option is to get small refillable plastic bottles for travel. These can be gotten as a set in local supermarkets near you, or shops that sell gift items.
You can tag them in order not to mix up your ointments and use shampoo for body lotion.
Another thing to note is to skip packing bottles that may break, like your perfume, and turn out a quantity in a refillable plastic perfume bottle.
This not only saves space and allows you room for more, it also ensures you have all your products with you anytime you travel.
Ziplock bags are Religion
There is nothing more annoying than pulling out a shirt from your travel bag and finding out compressed packing caused your lotion to squirt all over it. Not only is it a waste of a perfectly good product; you have one less clothing item.
You can never tell how your luggage would be packed, and the smartest way to avoid uncontrolled spillage of products is to seal them in ziploc bags before putting them in your luggage. This way, if it does spill, it is in a contained space.
Non-Liquids are Genius
Ever been to an airport and you have to decide between your shampoo or body wash because you have exceeded the amount of liquid quota you can carry? I know, it is a hard choice to make.
Save yourself the trouble and opt for non liquids for some of your favourite products. Some shampoo have non gel forms, and you can scout if your favourite body wash has a bar soap version. Look on the bright side, you can fit in more liquids this way.
Hyaluronic acids are Dry Skins’ Besties
Studies show that moisturizers, night creams and serums that contain hyaluronic acids better hydrate dry skin. So, if you have dry skin, you might want to check the content of your moisturizers closely.
Packing the best product for your skin type goes a long way to ensure your skin is on a constant glow.
